In real life football the atmosphere around a team is of great influence on it's performance. If there is bad management or an incompetent coach this will have a negative effect on the way players feel and act on the pitch. In Hattrick this effect is represented by the Team Spirit.
The Team Spirit has a direct effect on the midfield strength of a team. The actual midfield strength based on players abilities is increased or decreased according to the Team Spirit. The midfield strength of both teams determines the distribution of chances, so a high Team Spirit will boost your midfield and deliver you more chances.
At the start of each season the Team Spirit is reset to a default level (composed). From then the actions of your club and your coach influence the rise and fall of the Team Spirit. Whatever you do Team Spirit is always trying to change back to composed. The leadership factor of your coach determines how fast it will change in that direction. A coach with high leadership will speed up the rate Team Spirit rises when below composed and slow down decrease in Team Spirit when above composed.
- Things that influence the Team Spirit:
- Playing MOTS or PIC
- TS-hits when buying or selling player
- Bad management, like hiring too many staff
