You're right about the timing for an FFX one. No we havn't done that yet.
Man, I better hurry up on my playthrough then.
I'm still on the Mi'hen Highroad. :P
I'm upset because you were playing (and winning?) Blitzball while I was being a pansy-ass to even try till I could get good players.
Heh, Blitzball isn't hard. I can safely say I'll never lose a Blitzball match. I can easily secure at least a few overtimes before I eventually score. There are some easy adjustments you can make on your team right at the start.
First, recruit Wedge. Biggs isn't that good, but Wedge is a great striker. He has good Endurance, Attack and Shoot. You can find him just outside the locker room area in Luca.
Second replace Keepa immediately. He's garbage. Instead get Jamal, who is hanging around Luca somewhere, sitting on a chair if I remember right. He'll be your goalie until you get the chick who wears red (I can't remember her name), who hangs out near the Moonflow.
Getting Tidus's Jecht Shot on the boat ride from Killika to Luca helps a lot. If you are smart enough with your passes you can get Tidus right infront of the goal with only 2 defenders taking him on. At early levels you'll only have enough HP to use it once until halftime (and then subsequent overtimes). Once he gets a few levels though, you don't need to worry about it.
After your fairly easy goal using Jecht Shot, just play defensively. Jamal with Super Goalie should be able to catch just about anything anyone shoots at the early levels. The Al Behd Pysches may give you a bit of grief, but its not too bad.
