Q: My players have great star ratings. Can I be take wins against opponents with lower star ratings for granted?
A: Not necessary! Star rating can be tricky, because every aspect of player's quality is equally represented. For example, if player has good ability to make steals but is bad at field shooting, both will have same impact on his star rating. But he'll only make a few steals and will much more frequently shoot during the game. So it can be crucial to give players appropriate tactical orders to get the best out of them.
