Every virtual football [[club]] in Hattrick is a [[team]] managed by human [[user]] and it consists of virtual football '''players''', (in a number between minimum 9 and maximum 50.{{ref|ref-1}}<br> The manager chooses a [[formation]] with 11 of these players (10 outfielders and 1 [[goalkeeper|keeper]]) for each game, plus 5 [[Substitutions|substitutes]] ([[forward]], [[midfielder]], [[winger]], [[defenderv and keeper substitutes).

A team is the virtual football team one owns and manages in Hattrick. It consists of a number of virtual football [[players]], usually between 20 and 30 (maximum 50). The manager chooses a [[formation]] with 11 of these players (10 outfielders and 1 keeper) for each game, plus 5 substitutes (forward, midfielder, winger, defender and keeper substitutes).
  
Each player has an individual '''name''' and '''ID''', along with its current '''age''', and is made up of assorted '''skills, personality, form, experience''' and '''specialties'''. He'll also have an ideal [[:Category:Player_positions|position]], but you'll need to work that out yourself through analysing the ratings the player achieve in your games.

The [[Hattrick Football Association]] announced on 26.11.2008 that the maximum number of players allowed in a team is 50. Previously it was possible to exceed this number with various ill effects on the team.
  
==Players Skills==
+
Each player has an individual name and ID, along with its current age, and is made up of assorted [[skills]], [[personality]], [[form]], [[experience]] and [[specialties]]. He'll also have an ideal [[:Category:Player_positions|position]], but you'll need to work that out yourself through analysing the ratings the player achieve in your games.
Each player has 8 basic '''[[skill]]s''', while there are also some additional factors affecting their performance in different situations. Let's have a rundown on the various skills first:
 
  
===Form===
+
==Age==
'''[[Form]]''' is one of the most important characteristics for any player, determining how well he is able to use his skills. You'll note that a good player who is out of form will often be outperformed by a not so good player at the top of his game.
+
One of the attributes of a [[player]] is his current age. Since the beginning of season 33 (late july-07) player birthdays are individual, and one HT-year is 112 days.
 +
Before this was implemented, every player had his age updated every season on the Monday immediately before the first round of cup matches. So back then, every player in [[Hattrick]] had the same birthday. See also [[Training#Effect_of_player_age|effect of player age]], and the article about [[old players]].
  
===TSI===
+
==Form==  
'''[[Total Skill Index]]''' is a measurement of how skilled a player is. TSI increases with training and can also increase (and decrease) with form.  
+
[[Form]] is one of the most important characteristics for any player, determining how well he is able to use his [[skills]]. You'll note that a good player who is out of form will often be outperformed by a not so good player at the top of his game.
  
===Injury===
+
==Experience==
Sometimes players set on field get '''[[Injury|injuries]]''' and there is nothing you can do about it. Long time injuried players low their form and TSI. However a bruised player can still play, giving a lower contribution than his skills.
 
  
==Other attributes==
+
Some players may not have the greatest abilities, but their knowledge of the game more than makes up for it. Thus, old and experienced players often play much better than their younger, greener colleagues.
===Age===
 
One of the attributes of a player is his current '''age'''.{{ref|ref-2}} One [[season|HT-year]] is 112 days.<br>
 
The player’s wage is updated only when he changes his age (at 0 days) and reflects his skills and his age at that time.<br>
 
Skills can drop weekly as [[Training#Effect_of_player_age|effect of player age]]:
 
* regardless the age will occur for highly trained skills (titanic and more);
 
* an extra age drop will occur for the 28yo+ players.
 
  
===Player Specialties===
+
For a full discussion, click [[Experience|here]].
Some of the players in Hattrick may have '''[[specialties]]''' that differentiate them from other players. A player may have only one specialty, and no more.

==Player Specialties==

'''Some''' of the players in Hattrick have [[specialties]] that differentiate them from other players. A player may have only one specialty, and no more.
  
 
Player's specialties are also affected by the weather, for example a Quick player will not play as well as he could in wet and rainy conditions.

Also players that have Head as their specialty will be better at scoring headers/clearing headers than another player that does not have the Head specialty.

==Personality==
Some players may not have the greatest abilities, but their knowledge of the game more than makes up for it. Thus, old and [[Experience|experienced]] players often play much better than their younger, greener colleagues.
+
 
 +
Finally, a player also has four [[personality]] characteristics, leadership, agreeability, honesty and aggressiveness.
 +
 
 +
==Injury and Suspension==
 +
 
 +
All this is well and good, but sometimes a player isn't able to play...
  
===Loyalty===
+
For more information, see [[Injury]].
Players with high [[loyalty]] to the club perform better on the pitch. Loyalty increases with time spent at the club.
 
  
===Personality===
+
==Yellow and Red Cards==
Finally, a player also has four [[personality]] characteristics:
 
* leadership,
 
* agreeability,
 
* honesty,
 
* aggressiveness.
 
  
Highly aggressive players will tend to be booked more often than other playersEspecially if they're also dishonest or lacking in experience.
+
Players may get booked or sent off during games.  Two bookings during a match will automatically lead to the player being sent offBookings and Sending-Offs during '''competitive''' games eventually lead to a suspensions. A player will be suspended for the next (competitive, cup or league) match if he is sent off, or if he has accumulated 3 bookings during a season. This is shown by a red card symbol on the player page. You can also see how many yellow cards have been received so far.  At the end of the season all [[cards]] are cleared.
  
==Cards and Suspension==
+
Whilst a player can receive cards during friendly matches, they have no other effects than those seen during the game.

Players who are sent off still receive credit for appearing in the match for training purposes, but only for the minutes he had played (he may eventually need to play more minutes in the midweek friendly match if he was sent off in a league match).

Players who are sent off still receive credit for appearing in the match for training purposes; if a player is sent off in a league match, it is not necessary to also play him in the midweek match.

Players do not voluntarily retire from Hattrick. They always assume that they can continue to play and be useful to the club!

Players do not voluntarily retire from Hattrick. They always assume that they can continue to play and be useful to the club!  When a player's skills have declined so much so that he is of no further use to the club and he is of no value as a transfer (or when a player suffers a career-ending injury), he may be fired or retired to the club's [[Hall of Fame (club)|Hall of Fame]].  A fired player is not remembered by name &mdash; if you attempt to visit his page, you will find only an impersonal note about where the player was last seen.  Occasionally, a fired player will be recycled as an externally-recruited coach.

Occasionally, a fired player will be recycled as an externally-recruited coach for other teams.
