Wait, Hale lost because he got Sim beat? That's ****ing stupid.
Simming in the playoffs, how absurd.
Tweaking it to run the best way to fit your roster isn't the easiest thing to do. It took me several games in the regular season to tweak it so that I win a few of the games.
I agree with what Derek2k3 was saying.....I don't like that the games are being SIMMED when it comes to PvP matchups. I get that it maybe hard to meet up and play....but if there are repeated requests to play from one Player and the other Player doesn't ( at least ) respond saying that he's busy...then I'm thinking that those games should be forfeited. If the Player does respond and simply need more time...then I can PAUSE the league to allow more time to schedule games.
FYI......once the Playoff Ends.....there will be 1 or 2 full days ( in Real time ) between the Playoffs and the start of the Offseason.
I don't recall when it starts and what the sequence is....but note that the timeframe for the Draft and ( more importantly ) the Offseason Free Agent signing...is done at the same time. The Draft occurs ( we draft like normal for the made up College Players ) and then right after...the Free Agency starts. This means that we should expect to do this in the next week or so.
Please note that if there are Players that you don't want to pick up Players' Team Options or sign Players that you don't want to sign at outrageous contracts....then you should plan on taking care of your Offseason tasks.
I think I can PAUSE the League AFTER the Playoff ends.....but this is something that we will need to plan around as to when it happens.
And u can't edit players tendencies which is the biggest thing u need in a chise
I've already had 4 games simmed on me just because my work schedule/family obligations completely prevented me from playing, even though I've been in contact with my opponents. I was good enough to recover in the the first round but its not happening in the ECF. I hate that we're going at such a fast pace. I think every PvP playoff game should be played. I don't know how you can think this season has gone by slow, Dgreen.
And I don't think pausing the league is at all annoying, really. I wish I had known you were willing to do that, Cable. I flat out couldn't make it before the first sim, and the second..me and DGreen took turns falling asleep at our scheduled meet up times and ended up with a simmed game. Both losses, and it's a shame because all of our games (which have ended in disconnects each time but once) have been pretty much dead even.
And I just lost the series with three simmed losses. Screw this. Absolutely ridiculous we were simming playoff games.
Sorry Ghostface Millah, I wasn't aware that all the games were SIMMED....I wasn't able to login to the League on the PS3 and when I did....there was no way for me to tell if the games are SIMMED through the GUI. I was under the assumption that you guys were working out some schedule to play the game. If I had known earlier, I would have PAUSED the league to allow for you to work out some scheduled time to play.
When it comes to ANY PvP game ( Playoff games ), my preference is to PAUSE the league to allow all of you to schedule time to play ( cuz I know that it's hard to find time to play given work and conflicting schedules ); because the main reason why I play in the League is to simply play against a real person. To address the length of time....I can force wins for any of the PvCPU Playoff games for each round until there is a PvP Matchup so that we can avoid the playoffs taking too long.
I'm sorry that things took this long and that it turned out this way....clearly there were a lot of "bumps in the road" when it comes to the Playoffs.....but now that we know how this works and I have an idea about what I ( as an Admin can and cannot do )...we will know what to do next time in the Playoffs.
But I understand that this could be frustrating for various reasons....either cuz of the length of time it takes to play and due to the SIMMED games....but it's up to all of you if you want to continue playing or not.
You won once. The other three were simmed. You can't count those disconnects as wins. Most of them were in the first half when they occurred and they were all very close games. Yeah, I led by 5 in the 3rd or 4th I believe, but I'm not counting that as a win. We have been in touch throughout, so it's ridiculous we had three sims in our series. You basically got a hassle-free trip to the finals because when I was available to play, the game always disconnected, and when I wasn't available-it simmed.
Cable, I'll keep playing. Hopefully, we will have an operating procedure settled for season 2, and we won't have these complaints.
ok....so are the finals set?
If so, I am inclined to declare DGreenwell3 the Champ UNLESS Vandy is still playing.
