==Age==
+
==Players Skills==
One of the attributes of a [[player]], is the current age of the player. Since the beginning of season 33 (late july-07) player birthdays are individual, and one HT-year is 112 days.
+
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:
Before this was implemented, every player had their 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.
 
  
==Form==  
+
===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.

'''[[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.
  
==Experience==
+
===TSI===
 +
'''[[Total Skill Index]]''' is a measurement of how skilled a player is. TSI increases with training and can also increase (and decrease) with form.
  
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.
+
===Injury===
 +
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==
 +
===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==
+
===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.

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'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.

Highly aggressive players will tend to be booked more often than other players. Especially if they're also dishonest or lacking in experience.

==Yellow and Red Cards==
+
A player will be suspended for the next (competitive, cup or league) match if:
 +
* he receives two bookings during a match will automatically leading to the player being sent off. 
 +
* 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.

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).

== Retirement ==

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

When a player's skills have declined so much so that he can't be converted to [[coach]] or he is of no further use to the club or 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]]. Occasionally, a fired player will be recycled as an externally-recruited coach for other teams. 
 +
Otherwise, 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.

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.[1]
The manager chooses a formation with 11 of these players (10 outfielders and 1 keeper) for each game, plus 5 substitutes (forward, midfielder, winger, [[defenderv 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 position, but you'll need to work that out yourself through analysing the ratings the player achieve in your games.

Players Skills[edit]

Each player has 8 basic skills, while there are also some additional factors affecting their performance in different situations. Let's have a rundown on the various skills first:

Form[edit]

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.

TSI[edit]

Total Skill Index is a measurement of how skilled a player is. TSI increases with training and can also increase (and decrease) with form.

Injury[edit]

Sometimes players set on field get 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[edit]

Age[edit]

One of the attributes of a player is his current age.[2] One HT-year is 112 days.
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.
Skills can drop weekly as 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[edit]

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'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.

Experience[edit]

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.

Loyalty[edit]

Players with high loyalty to the club perform better on the pitch. Loyalty increases with time spent at the club.

Personality[edit]

Finally, a player also has four personality characteristics:

  • leadership,
  • agreeability,
  • honesty,
  • aggressiveness.

Highly aggressive players will tend to be booked more often than other players. Especially if they're also dishonest or lacking in experience.

Cards and Suspension[edit]

All this is well and good, but sometimes a player isn't able to play... Players may get cards or be sent off during games and bookings and sending-offs during competitive games eventually lead to a suspensions. Whilst a player can receive cards during friendly matches, they have no other effects than those seen during the game.

A player will be suspended for the next (competitive, cup or league) match if:

  • he receives two bookings during a match will automatically leading to the player being sent off.
  • 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.

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).

Retirement[edit]

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 can't be converted to coach or he is of no further use to the club or 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. Occasionally, a fired player will be recycled as an externally-recruited coach for other teams. Otherwise, a fired player is not remembered by name — if you attempt to visit his page, you will find only an impersonal note about where the player was last seen.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^  The HFA 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.
  2. ^  Every player in Hattrick had the same birthday and age was updated once every season (on the Monday immediately before the first round of cup matches) until the beginning of season 33 (late July 2007), when player's birthdays became individual. Before this was implemented, . So back then,
