Finally broke CR 160!
Took me 56 Ranked games, but I'm on my way. Incidentally, one more W and I get to a 2:1 W:L ratio. That leaves me with a funny suspicion about the next game, but I also have a feeling I'm ready to get over that hump.

Now, I just need some poor sap to come along and play my High Elves.... :)

Nice mixture of races you have played there. Give yourself a new challenge of playing vs some rougher team, dorfs, c.dorfs or orcs for example. Maybe you should then try playing a few more games in which you are the underdog?

Me too - I'm below CR 160 for the first time since I broke it :)

oh freak - don't bring sense into this...

So, goes to show that the CR lives up to it's 'evil' nickname.

Grats.

It's when you start thinking about this sort of thing it suddenly goes all wrong. Be careful not to get frustrated when Nuffle turns on you!

congrats, matt. I think 56 is a pretty good mark even though you might have played better teams exclusively.
I have learned not to care too much about CR anymore and don't see it as a very good indicator of coaching skills as you can lose far too often in BB playing the better game. Besides you can improve your CR too easily by playing noobs, just like a boxer can pad his record by constantly fighting stiffs.
Good luck on the further quest to 170

Yar it doesnt mean too much, There are many good coaches that play only fling vamps and ogres in ranked so will have a far lower CR than expected. But grats all the same here is a link so you can see your progression http://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=coach&op=development&coach=130241

bollocks !

2:1 W:L doesn't feel half as good as 160, especially since that last game was against a coach who's new to BB and has been struggling a lot; doesn't feel right to gloat, especially as it wasn't one of my better showings anyhow. I've learned watching this that when I beat up on a low-CR team or a race that wouldn't be expected to win it doesn't really change my CR. I've also learned that CR can really be broken down as "recent record @ competition" and tends to over-weight recent slumps. It also over-weights TV. My last opponent had 240k on me, so my CR went up when I won, even though he wouldn't have been able to handle me with Halflings.

I actually have a hard time scheduling bash teams against the High Elves. The reason is that I'd usually rather play the Orcs, and the HE are the fallback team for people who are afraid of the big bad greenies. So they draw all the bold, fearless Chaos and Dwarfs and CDs, and only the teams that run away from those guys get my High Elves. The High Elves win more (13-2-3 vs 12-5-8, really 12-6-7 if you count shootouts as ties), but they ostensibly don't do as much damage.
