Playoffs starting early!!??


Playoffs starting early!!??

I was told here, and also league page stated, there was 3 days (24 hours) off from end of regular season (lastnight approx 620 PM) untill playoffs begin. I had EVERY sub left in lineup from season's end, expecting plenty of time to adjust. But woke up this morning to game 1 already played!! What the hell???

Re: Playoffs starting early!!??

I don't know about on the boards, but the 3 off days in question are Pennant Chase off days, specifically days of rest for your players. It doesn't mean 3 real-life days. I've had it happen too, which is why I leave my everyday lineup almost always intact and just take my chances injury-wise. It might not be the best strategy but it will help even if I'm not playoff-bound. Meaning I can still potentially add more PC wins to my PC total whether I'm in the playoffs or not.

Re: Re: Playoffs starting early!!??

I said to read your leagues specific rules regarding the quantity of days off, I assumed you realized that days Off are actually Rest days, but still am confused as to why you would have bench guys in if the Season was over.
Even if it WAS three calendar days, those guys were not going to be playing at any rate, why replace your best guys with Bench players??

You would just have to put your best guys in before the next game played,

Re: Playoffs starting early!!??

3 days rest for the sim is 24 hours real time, is it not? I clinched wildcard with 3 games left in season, so to be 100% certain none of my key players were to get hurt, I replaced them. I then expected fully to have the 24 hours between seasons end and playoffs to put my players back in. But the playoffs began 8 hours later while I was sound asleep!!! That's not even ONE day of rest! So how am I missing something??

Re: Playoffs starting early!!??

Check your days of rest on your team homepage you'll notice only Pedro Martinez and Mariano Rivera need rest meaning it reset all your pitchers before in between. the Sim is on what they call autopilot since the commissioner is basically non-existent. Probably granted the days off in quick succession. autopilot basically means it's essentially a bot type thing but in a positive way. It even says it's on autopilot in the league rules. I'm not quite sure why it's set up the way it is. all I know is that is what it is

Basically the Sim gives you 3 off days but as I said 3 pennantchase days, but that doesn't mean it's a full day's worth of Sims. Can't really change it now, all you can do is look forward with your lineups and just hope for the best. I'm sorry this happened to you like I said it's happened to me before too. Which is why I do it my way. I don't fully understand the sim and I probably never will. But as an avid baseball fan, that's not going to stop me from enjoying this site. Again I'm sorry this happened to you but there's no point in continuing to rant about it. There's really nothing else you can do except look forward

Re: Re: Playoffs starting early!!??

When the sim gives 3 days rest it happens all at once, not 8 hours apart, so if a guy is injured and has 5 games left to heal, he magically goes to 2 days.

And if a pitcher needs to rest for 4 days, it becomes 1


Re: Playoffs starting early!!??

This is an extremely important concepts for players--and especially commishes of customs--to learn--you don't have to skip a literal day to grant a day off.
