At the end of each season game, you will gain some XP based on starpoints earned in that game. As you gain XP, your game level will gradually increase (to a maximum of level 99).
Ego (difficulty level) can be set seperately from 0-99 for each user. The higher the Ego, the higher the starpoint multiplier and therefore the greater the starpoint award for a specific achievement (such as hitting a home run). Important: Your ability to level up will be impaired if you set Ego at a number lower than the Game Level you've attained.
As you level up, you will gain access to better modifiers, more staff members and additional available slots on players.
Every time you level up, some players on your team will gain additional slots to which modifiers can be assigned. Players can have up to 7 slots in total:
Up to 2 Coaching modifiers
Up to 2 Training modifiers
Up to 2 Gear Broker modifiers
Up to 1 Stylist modifier
Hire staff and assign the modifiers they provide to your players to improve players' skills! You will need an improved team to compete at higher levels!
Every staff member you hire would like to stay with your team for a minimum amount of time (their contract length).
Carefully choose which players on your team would benefit most and hire accordingly.
Staff members vary greatly in the quality of the modifiers they can provide to your players. It is very rare for a staff member to provide 3 very powerful modifiers. The pool of staff you can hire from changes after every season game you play.
You will need to fire an existing staff member to upgrade to a better one. But be careful! If you fire someone before their contract is up, potential staff members may walk away!
You can create new Team Configurations in the Customize screen. If you have created a custom configuration for a team, use the right stick to choose it when selecting a team.
Push the Appearance button in the My Team menu to customize the looks of each character!
You can assign modifiers uniquely for each configuration you create, so experiment with different combinations and strategies!
