Well, if we do current it would literally mean we have like two draft classes then we would have to have fictional ones after that...

It would be everyday to keep the continuity. Right now I am sorting out why the game is acting up with their support team. Should have it running by Friday though.

These can be really fun if run right. League activity and everyday simming are the most important thing.

Agree 100%. Would this be fantasy draft style moving to a league or simply take over a team in whatever era is decided?

Taken over a team in a decided era. Right now, still waiting for the creator of the game to get back to me on the problems that I am having with the game. Once I get it worked out, should be able to get a start on for this.

Guys, this is on hold until I can get someone to look at my laptop. The developer of the game has been trying to help me, but for some reason my laptop isnt cooperating with the game (after me paying for said game :/)

I am 100% willing to do this, because this wont take maybe 30 minutes a day to do. I may spring the money to have someone in Cambridge fix it/ spruce it up.

Been asking for a schedule. Could you post one?

I didn't know you were going to sim the entire FA period in one sim. In my past experience FA lasted several days. When a FA didn't like an offer, he simply waited it out. I don't mind what happened, but can we get an idea of how this will go?

How many days do you think the season will last? When is the trade deadline?

Yeah, saw that trade and recognized the ability to trade consecutive 1st rounders.

Docta
07-24-2013, 07:41 PM
You can only trade consecutive 1sts if one of the them is in the present year. The game doesn't allow you to trade consecutive future 1sts.

Also, protections might not be included in the game, but couldn't we just keep track of them on the forum?

zachsaints52
07-24-2013, 07:42 PM

Way I figure it, if a team literally doesnt want to get better, all the guys in the league (besides my friend) are long time people. Let'em show how bad of a GM they are if they bomb haha. (Ill probably bomb to be honest).

And protections are too hard to control. I mean, this isnt going to be like the real NBA already, especially if Oden turning into a real good player.

It doesnt, thats why I said if Oden turns into a good player. For example, in another league I am in Shabazz Mohammed had a 92 potential, but never really got better. And he was the 2nd pick overall.

zachsaints52
07-24-2013, 07:50 PM
This is the 2000-01 season. It's not a future pick..

I changed my answer after reading what you said.

And I am working on it.... I am trying to make up camps personally instead of using others.

No, I will be creating the draft classes by scratch throughout the season. Should be done by All-Star break.

07-24-2013, 09:52 PM
how should we set up the depth chart, like 1 position per player or put them at multiple positions?

for example

this

PF Shawn Marion - Tom Gugliotta
SF Hedo Turkoglu - Shawn Marion

or

this

PF Shawn Marion - Tom Gugliotta
SF Hedo Turkoglu

gpngc

SF Hedo Turkoglu

The first way. It always has to be three players in each position. You could, if you wanted, do it like

Marion / Marion / Marion

But it doesnt mean he will play the entire game. A player can be put in a place that he is not a position of. So Marion can start at one position, and move to another.

Wait but if I do for example:

PG: Payton / Anderson / Williams

does that mean Williams will be in the every game rotation?

So if I do

PG: Payton / Payton / Anderson

Payton will play more minutes?

????????

I can honestly say I dont know the right answer, because its not cut and dry so to speak on the MPG.

But I can say that in all most leagues, most GMs put their starters as also the 3rd guys in the lineup as well. So its usually starter backup starter.

Maybe one of the others can clarify more.

Interesting way to get to 8-6...

Hammered the Lakers, SuperSonics, and 76ers which were three teams I thought would crush me and then lose to the Suns. Heavily disappointed in my defense I'm hoping slowing the pace down brings that into line. Looking at box scores I think I'm the professional version of Duke. If I shoot >40% from downtown it's over but I'm just as likely to shoot 20% and get roflstomped. :/

Trogdor
07-26-2013, 08:12 AM

Can we slow down the amount of days simmed? 20 days at a time seems like a lot. The season will be over in a week. How about 5 days at a time or something?

prock
07-26-2013, 12:48 PM
I'll vote for ten. I won't necessarily have enough time to update my GM points every day with that many games.

gpngc
07-26-2013, 01:27 PM
I think it's fine the way it is. People will lose interest and forget to look if it takes too long. Plus, there's nothing to do but get GM points and set a depth chart (which you don't even have to change).

The offseason is the fun of it...

Trogdor
07-26-2013, 01:29 PM
With gpngc here slowing it down will cause the season to drag on and people will lose their interest and it'll fall apart. When the draft/FA is happening on a weekly/bi-weekly basis you have a MUCH better chance of people sticking together at least from personal experience.

Updating the GM points can easily be done in batches anyhow. If you can't update them one day and have more time the day after simply update Sim "X" and Sim "Y" periods together. Unless you are playing on spending the GM points on a daily basis it wouldn't harm you.

Off-season I definitely vote for slowing things down as that's the most interesting portion of the experience along with the most interaction.

prock
07-26-2013, 01:30 PM
OK, let's keep it as is.

gpngc
07-26-2013, 01:32 PM
If people need it slowed down that is fine with me but definitely not less than 10 days at a time. Once the season starts to drag on people will lose their interest and it'll fall apart. When the draft/FA is happening on a weekly/bi-weekly basis you have a MUCH better chance of people sticking together at least from personal experience.

Agreed. It's not like we're doing anything while the games are being played. It just sims.

If there was a set schedule (20 games every night, 4 days for an offseason, etc.), we could possibly do a bunch of years and people would know when they need to sign on and make changes and be active.

Going slowly takes away a lot of the fun for the rebuilding teams and the mediocre teams - which is the majority of users.

And Zach Saints... I can help you with draft classes because I don't have first round picks the next two years...

Trogdor
07-26-2013, 01:35 PM
Asked in the other thread but I might as well put it here. Are we doing real draft classes or are the fictitious ones listed in the "Draft Preview" the ones we are rolling with?

I was kind of hoping for real guys as the idea of fulfilling the potential of guys like Kwame and Oden would make for a nice alternate history.

Docta
07-26-2013, 01:36 PM
They're going to be real players. I already gave zach the draft class.

07-26-2013, 02:15 PM
Because tonight I wont be here.

Days 21-30. I figured from now on do 15 days, because if not All Star games would be in like 3 days. So 15 days a pop from now on, this one is 10 to even it out.

Of course we're doing things throughout the season. TRADES. Fine tune DC settings. The offseason isn't the only time to adjust your team.

I've been in slow leagues that sim 1 game a day. It does nothing to lose league interest if the players involved aren't flaky. What about 10 days at a time then? Is that middle ground? 20 games is way too fast.

I think if you are in rebuilding mode, then you want the season to go by quickly. I think we need to find a balance.

Can't really have a set schedule because I am not even at home right now, living up my last few days in Boston. I do plan on doing something every night to keep it going though.

And I am switching to 15 days a sim.

Draft classes wont be that hard. Once I upload I will gain feedback and switch whats appropriate.

I put in every single DC change. You putting Marion in the third slot is not much of a change though.

Says 17.5, which means its probably going downwards.
Also, if they arent on the IR nor the DC, they still will get some sort of playing time. Marion cannot play all 48 minutes, theres foul trouble, for instance. So if Marion is on there twice, and Hedo is already in... It puts in a player you dont have up.

And started it on the DC thread.

Its actually easier how it is now. Hence why I use red, to know where it starts and ends. If someone misses a Depth Chart, and has something bolded, I would have to check their team still. I like how it is.

This might be a stupid question but do players get better on their own without camps?

Like if a player has a true A potential, are his stats going up every game, based on performance, or how does that work with young players? Do they get better only in the offseason?

Question I asked zach that I think everyone will want to know.

If a player is injured for x amount of days, let's say 6. The sim goes 15 days. If we wanted our player to play from Day 7 on, how do we specify that in the Depth Chart update?

Or is it an all or nothing type of thing?

Can a player get more hurt if he's in your active depth chart?

He's not talking about the camps that you buy. There's a training camp in the game for the offseason.

@D: If he's injured, he won't play. Zach's supposed to get a notice when a player is healthy, so I suppose you could just post 2 DCs.

I said right after the Free Agency period there is a actual part called Training Camp, where you players get better or worse.

If he is injured in the active depth chart, it will start the second guy until your player is back from injury.

Also are we coming up on the trade deadline?

If so the Dallas Maverick's wacky, waving, inflatable, arm flaling, tube man expiring contract emporium should be your first stop for your salary shaving needs! See the trade block thread for more details!

Speedy Claxton
2001 2nd

Reason:
I loved Darius Miles, who everyone knows sucked in the league.

Why the Clippers would: They have Odom at SF, and right now Claxton would be their best PG option.

Understandable, but I was just going off of what the game actually had for potential. Docta can tell you, the potential is all over the place, to where right now Claxtons pot is actually higher than Miles, I guess the creators of the league wasnt feeling Miles to have been good.

So its basically what you see is what you get for both players. But Claxton would be the #1 PG for them, while Darius would just be a backup for them.

Docta
08-01-2013, 10:39 PM

This. Regardless of how fair it is when the offer is made. If a human player gets significantly better end of the deal in the long run it's going to be an ugly situation.

Much better IMHO to not do CPU trades. There's a bunch of lazy SOBs in that NBA thread that need to join us :D



As far as this exact trade I'd say that typically teams don't trade their 3rd overall pick from that year for the 20th pick and a 2nd round pick. Essentially since this is their rookie year I'd look at it from a "would you trade the 3rd overall pick for the 20th overall pick and a 2nd"? I don't think there would be a single yes to that, but if there is please get in contact with me around draft time my 2nd rounder is available :D. Since it's a CPU - Human trade I'd say it's better to not have that one go through.

A.C. Green... Robert Parish...Kareem...Mutombo... I would probably list another 5 before hitting Payton.

Injuries happen and at least you have the ability to cut the duration in half here :P Dirk was always durable as anything and he ruptured his Achilles on here before making it to 20 games.

Sheed seems like a perfect PG. Why not try him there? ;)

How do I tell who made the All-Star team? I can't find it in the nav and want to confirm how awesome KG is.

...he didn't make it lol. you just click his name and it brings up a list of his accomplishments. that blank white box on the right side is for a list of awards

edit: you should probably trade him now or something

You go to the schedule, Day 60. It shows the 3 pt shootout, slam dunk, and both the rookie/sophmore game and the all-star game.

Can we update the depth charts for playoffs now? And as a second league oriented question when can we begin to resign/make offers to our incoming FAs?

Teams in the playoffs will update them.

What will happen is right after the playoffs I will accept every resigning for the teams. You will need to tell me to accept or decline them. If you accept, they stay on your team. If you dont, I will delete them from your team and there will be no penalty.

I will screenshot the lottery pages so no hanky panky on my part.
