Important: Second XI Draft and Plan Ahead

    Yes, IIRC it has about 50 players on it. :laugh:

    He did put the cricinfo IDs on the list though so it won't actually be any extra work for me. WAG.

    Yeah that phrase randomly pops into my head and the weird Fiery association always comes with it.

    For anyone staying up fizzing at the bung, I'm having some problems with the calculation that determines whether someone is a full time or part time bowler. I know something is off but I can't figure out what so I'm going to put it off until morning.

    He actually used frothing at the gash iirc

    curious about the seconds

    This has been kind of officially put off until after I've finished the actual sim (which is now entirely functional, but has bugs relating to: freezing after innings after sometimes, extras, dismissal types) and/or things are getting really dead, but I'm certainly happy to answer questions you have if you "curious" wasn't code for "gimme the players for" :laugh:

    Just for everyone's reference, I'll be away the following times:

    February 17-20
    March 12-18 (maybe 19)

    If I'm clever I'll have figured out a way to sim while away, but I'll actually be busy for most of my trips anyway.

    The goal is to be ready to sim pre-season some time before I leave the first time, and probably give you dribs and drabs about groups and pitches etc before then. Still on target for then. First pre-season games will hopefully be before I leave.

    Looking back I definitely took that as a bit more stick-pokey than was intended, so I apologoise if I was semi-snarky. I genuinely am keen to answer questions though, it's a great way to keep this alive in cowbeb times. Especially when people are used to me bailing on these things.

    I'll set out a few seconds facts anyway:

    - your extra Second XI players will be picked by your bot
    - each bot will over- and under-rate players by a random amount like ElvisSpike did
    - your 'recommendations' submitted will alter these values
    - your bot will select your Second XI team every round
    - your actual drafted players will play in Second XI unless injured/selected for first XI
    - unlike the first XI games in which I'll do the bowling changes and declarations for manually, these will be auto-simmed, and so far from perfect captaincy-wise

    I'll probably be far from perfect captaincy-wise too. But less so. :laugh:

    Will we have any say on the role our 2nd XI players play?

    Northeast can bat 1-5, do I have any input on what number he bats in seconds?
  13. StephenZA S Marais

    Why does this feel like Cribbs creating an AI to replace himself long term...
  14. Cribbage RG Cribb

    You do not. :p

    Your bot will be very preferential to batting your 11-18 players where they'll do well but sometimes it'll do something you don't like and you'll have to send it a nasty email and deal with it.
  15. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah this is a genuine attempt at this. But you'll all probably benefit because I sometimes take months if not an infinite amount to do what I have promised. The more I can automate the less you have to rely on me, and Second XI CPL will always be a testing ground for my automations. I hesitate to call it "AI" but it probably is.

    The start of every technology dystopia/apocalypse movie...

    I'm too austistic-libertarian to not start every code I create without a directive to not violate the non-aggression principle, but I guess Terminator:Ancap isn't a movie that would've been too popular.

    Will it decide that the players i picked are shit and not play them in the second XI
  19. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Nah, based on this:

    - your actual drafted players will play in Second XI unless injured/selected for first XI

    A player batting eleven and not bowling isn't out of realms of possibility though. If that actually happens I may revist the code. Hopefully none of you were blessed with "AI" that bad and none of you drafted that poorly.
