An observation:

During last year's league, Defection SA 19 was considered tier 4.

This year, Defection SA 18 is considered tier 6.

And yet nothing new has been discovered besides my new ending strategy, which only I have successfully done (or even attempted for the most part) and which none of the 18s on the rankings utilize.

I had tossed around the idea with theluge of playing only during fantasy league from now on. Choose me if you don't care about winning. I might play and get a ton of zero-point PRs! Close on dam 53/bunker 1 17, have PD and could possibly PR if I put in serious effort. Work is no longer a serious priority (killed my participation last year since I was temp-hire), so I have lots of time (but I'm learning guitar so interests have shifted in a major way).

And I also picked up a practically new! 10/10 controller!

I have the time, and the lack of distractions (no internet) at home means I can play, but I make no commitments and guarantee nothing.

I'm also not playing any other games. This would be 100% of my gaming focus.
90+ hrs into XC2 NG+, going for 100%. Be back when I get bored.

actually i think ill just straight up ban myself from being drafted because i actually know when all the bonuses are already and it would be unfair for me to play knowing that.

i dont plan on playing the game hardly at all anyway im still keen for improving my RTA in blast corps and other shit. so yea, definitely dont draft me i wont even allow it to happen

i should state that bonuses can only apply to times PROVEN before the bonus period ends too, so that obviously you cannot exploit the bonus with the soon to be obsoleted PR post without video. you already can hoard so like there shouldnt be any leeway

With postseason discussion happening, I just wanted to archive two ideas I mentioned in the Discord:

perhaps some incentive available to the higher seeds a la the daily doubles/weekly incentive (during playoffs)

could do "regular season champs" and "post-season champs"

who else wants the daily double to alternate between GE and PD? might be too late to change/suggest now but I still think it would be nicer

Same as Flechr, here was my idea to incentivize higher seeds and not keep people from necessarily hoarding to unleash in the playoffs: the top 4 seeds going into the playoffs would get bonus points to start the round, as a reward for placing higher in the regular season.

So for the first round, it would be something like:
1 seed: 200 bonus points
2 seed: 150
3 seed: 100
4 seed: 50

This would keep the end of the regular season moving along, as teams jockeyed for position heading into the playoffs.

You could then reseed in the following rounds and attribute bonus points to the highest remaining teams. A fear that was brought up in Discord was that since every team makes the playoffs, the regular season won't seem to matter as much towards the end, and teams will start hoarding to ensure they advance in the playoffs.

Obviously it's find in the NBA that 50% of the teams go fishing during the playoffs, but we still want to encourage activity in both games, and keeping all 8 teams around longer accomplishes that.

Just an idea, great league so far, really well put together Grav and Jono!

i think instead of a hard number of bonus points the top seeds should just get a round long multiplier based on the seed for the duration of the playoffs, but yeah birdie's idea sounds good to me

Yeah I thought about a multiplier as well, I think anything like that will work really well to balance the regular season with the playoffs.

how about the multiplier the teams get in the playoff is proportional to the amount of points they got in regular season, not just their standing? that way if the 1 seed gets a billion points they wont be penalized by having not many times left to play for in the playoffs... since the multiplier would be huge

i suppose that seems good, as long as they dont push to their complete limit and have nothing left for post-season, which is pretty easy to avoid.

also introducing the idea of a "trade deadline" which would mean after a certain date or number of players dropped/picked up your team's roster will be locked in for the playoffs

i support the trade deadline after thinking, i think the playoff rounds should just stay with the same people the whole way through and be the same as the team roster post deadline.

also for the postseason multipliers im thinking of this:



here are two examples using my idea. basically, you get a multiplier bonus just for placing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. but ALSO a bonus if the margin between 3rd and 4th or 1st and 2nd is massive. this way there is incentive to run up the score in regular season and also it helps reduce the necessity of sandbagging for playoffs. dont get too caught up with the actual values, just the concept. we can fine tune the values before the playoffs start via discussion

NEW RULES
-Drop rules changed to 4 drops total allowed instead of 1 per month
-Trade/drop deadline for the end of the third month (Sunday August 19th)
-Roster will remain the same from the trade deadline until the end of playoffs
-Playoff rounds will have a multiplier for each team based off final ranking and point spreads (exact numbers to be determined)
