This game

is awesome

Also the passing is better then i thought

but does losing health actually affect u <.>?
it looks like nothing happens if u lose health
also u GOTTA add scrums and maybe mauls cuz its annoying when AI just go forward so if u could push them in a maul like a skill that wastes stamina it could help alot >.>.
Also i hope u can add line outs too >=D

And one more question
if ur adding scrums does that mean positions are gonna be 1 hooker and 2-3 forwards?

Thanks for the feedback! To be honest, this was just something I made for fun and in all likelihood scrums/penalties will not be added unless one day I feel very motivated... Oh, and p.s. this is rugby league, not union - though that would be pretty cool hehe.

Having said that, in the future I was planning to make you gain some kind of 'fatigue' effects - namely a temporary drop in movement speed and tackle speed until you regain your health. Other than that and maybe a few select skills I wasn't planning on adding too much more - I consider this almost complete.

Edit: Added endurance loss effects :)

Ok the fact of the world that nobody can face:
Rugby is fucked up, its only good if you are prepared to lose all of your braincells, if you have any at all, OR if you like to break necks, and/or your own one.
EDIT: And isn't Origin Australian only?

Haha, well it would be interesting, but sorry I don't really have an interest in developing scrums in this game much...

Thanks for pointing that out Flamestorm... luckily this is a game. Yes, "State of Origin" is Australian only as far as I know, is it surprising that I'm from Australia then?

Flamestorm, you live up to your name.

A rugby game? Awesome! Will give this a try and see if I can give you much feedback.
I like how you've made the logo look like the one of the ARL too.

its so hard to tackle here... I end up tackling no one... I mean AI's are faster and the tackle skill is too late when it appears!!

Change that..

Oi! Oi! Oi!

Re: meercat: What do you mean is too late when it appears? Were you onside to begin with? Here's a tip: try and stay onside all the time (i.e. 10m+ back from the last play the ball), then when the ball is played, you can begin moving towards whoever has got the ball. When you tackle them, it's ideal to be in front of the ball carrier so they have to run around you (and take longer), allowing you to have ample time to tackle them.

If you're good and use sprint as well, you can often tackle the first receiver before they run more than 5 few metres ahead of the last play the ball..

I really meant too late.. I always stay onside... maybe 3 seconds before the tackle skill appears and even before I get to tackling, the ball is tackled by my teamates...
