Seasonal Rugby: Season 6 Discussion

    As I've said before, Season 5 may be the last of Seasonal Rugby.

    As it is, I need to have this current season finished by early July (kind of possibly on track for this, but probably a bit behind).

    If there is a Season 6, it realistically won't be able to start until November-ish and it will be run based on the current sim - no major changes will be made in this off season. Season 6 will also not start until each team has a reasonable amount of players (which currently will take some time to accumulate anyway) - probably 25 players per club (15 for the Cnuts)

    However, if there are minor tweaks which could be made, then raise them here.

    The things that I want to change which are relatively minimal are:

    1. Adjust Pick and Gos to happen more often, especially in wet matches and within the opposition 22.
    2. Adjust SCP scoring for certain events for certain positions
    3. Look at why rookie hookers are all shit (probably need additional scoring events for front rowers)

    There's a chance that Seasonal Rugby might be finishing :(

    Yeah, we've been aware of this for a while. Heef's heart and the interest just isn't there at the moment from what I remember.
  4. Quaggas O du Toit

    All excellent tweaks imo
  5. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    There's a *bit* more to it than that. I will pretty much be unavailable for quite a while from July as well.
  6. Droos JP Rhodes

    Direst news.
  7. Furball G Furball

    Maybe Cribb can fill the gap with some simmage.

    So has anyone actually bid yet?

    Not a fan of number 2 it will throw out my scoring system.
  11. azzal AJ O'Neill

    Excellent joke :lol:

    Indeed it will, but something needs to be done for front rowers to take into account their work at the scrum, which is currently not happening and thus is making their scores lower than their performance would suggest IMO.
  13. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    What types of SCPs and scores out of ten do first grade front rowers get right now?
  14. Furball G Furball

    Hookers seem to be almost all dreadful.
  15. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Benny is about the only front rower who regularly excels. But this is due to SCP scores IMO. There is no recognition at the moment on a player basis of performance at the scrum.
  16. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    If front rowers are the only position you modify that would work for me, as I can just monitor their scores for the first 4-5 games of the season and make adjustments.
  17. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Other forwards will change, but by a negligible amount - not enough to impact the scores, I suspect.

    Front rowers could change by +/- 20 or so points, so a recalculation of scores would probably be required - yes.
  18. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    Good - otherwise I would have left you to make the changes, which given the simplicity of the algorithm/matrix you would have managed no doubt.

    I think there is a different configuration for hookers vs props, so two alterations will be required. I will make a note to make this change 4/5 games in if the season goes ahead and will send you an email with the modifications (I have your address saved somewhere).

    Is there anyway for you to delegate more responsibility to your assistants to lighten the load on you Heef? I have thought about starting an ice hockey sim but after having observed your efforts I know I don't have the stamina. Much kudos to you for providing hours of entertainment to people from around the world.

    It's actually made a huge difference having Mariner, Howe and Tart available to 'broadcast' the games. We wouldn't be anywhere near as far through this season otherwise.

    EDIT: By far my biggest issue with simming these days is lack of interest and a diminishing membership of CricSim as a whole. No bids for the new franchise is damning evidence of the decline in interest.

    I'd have considered it if there was someone to run it with/I believed it wouldn't end up cannibalising another franchise/replacing a current one almost exactly.
