So I have a B- prestige team and want to swoop on a D- sim with a guy considering them from before recruiting started. What can I do? 6 HVs (he's close), a guaranteed start and 15 mins did nothing (rejected start and mins, not considering me).

they're "*very* tight with him"

If they're in  a division about you, it's pretty much hopeless with a 'very tight' message

Very Tight is somewhere around 25 HV's.... I would suspect he'll consider you around 15 HV's with the prestige advantage.

I have a B prestige team and was considering trying to steal a 5 star recruit from an A- prestige Sim AI team.  The Sim is "*very*" tight with him.  Would I have any chance at all of getting him?  If so how much would it cost?  He's 350 miles from me.

So unless the OVC is sending 10 teams to the NT every season, and you're sitting on the 80K+ rollover cash, I don't think you've got a shot with only 2 open scholarships.  Even if you did manage to get even close to be considered, I'm thinking another A+ prestige school is just going to come in and steal him anyway.

Just battled a sim, I was a D and he was a C, the message was very tight as well; I spent $32K, mainly on HV's as I was close to him and ended up getting the message to "he's struggling between..." but I ran out of money at that point, he did accept guaranteed minutes and start as well.

how many HVs?
2/16/2013 4:55 PM
Didn't keep track, recruiting is over so I can't look; just went back to a sitemail that I was discussing this situation with another owner to know that I spent $32k; I did send 10 evals, offered a scholly, GS, and GM and the rest were all HV's; I was under 200 miles
2/16/2013 4:58 PM
That's like 70 HV's. That's a lot more than  I would have thought.
2/16/2013 5:21 PM
Went back to my sitemail to see if I could find anything else, it was 20 evals instead of 10; in another world that's recruiting I found a guy that is 200 miles away which is what this other player was, based on the dollar amounts I see it was somewhere around 64 HV's probably sent.  At first he was rejecting HV's from me, then he started accepting some and rejecting others in the same cycle; not sure if that would have anything to do with it

Was he exactly 200 miles?  Because 200 is one of those crossover distance, there is a good 200 and a bad 200....I know there is a thread on it, let me check.

Wow, the expensive version of 200 miles is 64 HV's.   That's still a lot more than I thought was needed to make someone "untight".

He was exactly 200 miles, not sure though if it was the good or bad
