A Man Named Nadav
A man named Nadav gets to know Hattrick
Nadav signed up to HT in September 2007. 9 months previously, Hapoel Nahariya had made history in becoming the first non-suicide Masters winner. That trophy brought plenty of local media attention and publicity in Israel - which in turn led to a substantial increase in active managers in HT Israel. Nadav discovered hattrick not long after this. He was a 25 yr old accountant who signed up after a friend told him about the game, persuading him give Hattrick a try. Whilst waiting for his his team, he read several guides to the game and had decided he wanted to train Defending, despite the guidance advice having suggested goalkeeping as a good training regime for any new manager. Nadav reckoned that defence training would be more profitable. Over the next 4 years, training defending throughout, he promoted from VI to IV. Then, with an almost inexplicable inevitability, at the end of the 28th season in Israel (44th season global), he decided to switch to passing training. The rest, as they say, is his story...

Hattrick Life in Iraq
I would like to write some information about Hattrick life in Iraq and let the rest of the world know about it. There might be some information that people cannot imagine or even think about. On the other hand, perhaps there are also other Hattrick nations where they suffer from the same problems as we have in Iraq. At least I hope it's just in Iraq.
My article is also a little update of my colleague Akkad’s article (9431). That article was written around 2010-04-19 which was 4 years and 5 months ago. In that article he wrote about the safety we have in northern part of Iraq which is called Kurdistan and the internet access for people for playing the Hattrick game.
I would like to put you inside the reality we have in Iraq right now and the current facts that we suffer from during this hard time, as most of you know from the worldwide media, about the war against terrorism and IS (Islamic State) in Iraq.
442CA is the new 352
Last season, Chile won the World Cup. In itself, this is remarkable enough for a medium/small HT country. To make it more special, though, they've played most of their WC games 442CA. In the WC final they beat Switzerland with 1-5 (484403483), not surprisingly playing 442CA.
Guide to the Youth Academy
I figured it was a good idea to make the original forum post I wrote more "generic" and post it here for all to see. This article is not perfect, but I hope to give an outline of the kinds of things you can/should do with your Youth Academy, and basically 'How it all works' right now. Feel free to contact me with any corrections or suggestions you might have. On with the guide!
Vroom, vroom: the match engine!
The Match Engine is the software which generates all the events reported within any given Hattrick match, and in so doing generates the final match results. Over the years it has been the most criticized aspect of the game (not always constructively) but this crucial component of the game mechanics is the one that many users would much like to see improved and updated (especially after experiencing an unlikely loss).
Notwithstanding these voices of discontent, and although many of you reading this may well have complained about results generated by our Match Engine, do you actually know HOW it works?
In this article we've done our best to explain those inner machinations!
With any luck, by reading this article and learning a bit more about it, you'll be able to understand the game a bit better, improving your match orders skills. Most importantly of all, the next time you lose a match, despite having better ratings everywhere, you'll be able to post a technically more informed complaint entitled "Why did I loose?" :P
We hope you enjoy it!

Research on Hattrick’s Youth Academy Scouting Pools
HT-Tools and hattrick youthclub have analyzed 645,129 youth players to identify trends, distributions and frequencies of talented players. We divided the research in three parts. In the first one, we studied the talent of youth players in general through the last years. In the second part, we examined if the point of time of scouting a youth player has an important impact on the talent and finally, we searched for trends in order to see if pool refills are important on scouting.

Me, my wife and Hattrick
Pesnik describes once again his struggle to balance Hattrick, his wife's temper and his physical integrity. Apparently, only two elements can be in balance at the same time. Enjoy!
