Season 3 Preparation

    So, with 7 teams for next season the following things will happen:

    • The regular season will be expanded to 42 games
    • Each team will be playing 12 games a piece - playing each opponent once at home and once on the road
    • Playoffs will be between the top 4 teams, so even though someone with a losing record will probably qualify, it's better than 3 teams meaning 1st place would have a 5 game break
    • Playoffs will be 1st v. 4th, 2nd v. 3rd in a 3 game series, the winners then playing off in a 5 game series
    • Players will be significantly different in ability. Players who are active and performed well this season will be rated higher than those who did not perform so well. This works exactly the same way as CricSim, players who haven't been all that good can still perform well enough to become BS stars/BBallSim stars, etc (even if they're restricted to limited minutes). For those interested, the highest will be mid 80s and the lowest mid 70s - so all players are still talented enough to make an impact.
    • All awards will be named after their previous winners, player or team. The championship will be called the Ryan Gayler Trophy - after my predecessor.
    But the main point of the thread is, are there any suggestions for Season 3? Anything I should add? Anything I can improve on? Can be related to simming, stats, MVP or anything.

    I like the Dunk contest and 3 pt shootout, keep them.
  3. Hughesy JM Hughes

    Sounds good to me.

    Rewards team for having active players as well.

    Also can we have the games organised into rounds rather than games? It gets all a bit confusing at times. Or is that how the NBA is scheduled?

    Think that is how the NBA is scheduled, I could be wrong though.
  5. Hughesy JM Hughes

    Well if that is the case, I don't mind it being like that.
  6. MightyPies DA Alessi

    Playoffs to be a 5 game series, then the 'Final' to be a 7 game series imo.
  7. Mousey AJ Son

    I've made the schedule fairer next season. I've already got it done (because I'm simming through exhibition next season) and everyone plays within 3 games most of the time. The maximum gap is about 5 games IIRC.
  8. Hughesy JM Hughes

    Drags shit out way too long IMO. 3 & 5 is where it is at
  9. Mousey AJ Son

    It's 3 then 5. I don't want it too drag too long with a significantly shorter regular season.
  10. Hughesy JM Hughes

    Yeah I knew this was happening. Awesome then. The long gaps have been the worst thing about the season. Other than that, a real awesome season.
  11. MightyPies DA Alessi

    Touche niggas.

    I must say, you've run this pretty well. I have no idea what you are using to sim the games, im sure you've posted it somewhere i just haven't seen it, but good job. Im guessing 2k11.
  12. Mousey AJ Son

    Yeah, 2K. Don't care for the Jumpshot sim too much and it's turned out fairly well IMO.
  13. Escath LE Schaw

    Make me good.
  14. MightyPies DA Alessi

    Yeah, you've done a pretty good job at running this. I found a Baseball 'management' game the other day, normally worth 50-60 bucks and it allows you to create players, teams etc. Was thinking of starting it up as a Sim on here, then realised i wouldn't be able to do it as efficient as you.
  15. RyanG R Gee

    Yeah, Jumpshot takes way longer to enter people and stuff. Also has a lot of glitches. 2K is the way to go.
  16. Mousey AJ Son


    Don't know much about baseball, but I you'd have to think it right through a couple of times to get it fair and also entertaining. That'd be the hardest part.

    Yeah, it's been good. Very happy with it.
  17. MightyPies DA Alessi

    Yeah, the hardest part would be thinking of a fair way for a points system to set up attributes. With baseball, according to what position you play there are only about 5-7 stats though.
  18. Mousey AJ Son

    I think the harsest part would be making it a good sim to sign up for. Will your player get mentioned? Do you get a regular hit, etc.
  19. Skippos SM Morgan

    Allow me to score more than 2 pts a game...IM ACTIVE GOSH

    Me leaving the Pandas is looking the goods.
