New Favorite Teams League formats???


New Favorite Teams League formats???

Just thinking out loud here...is it possible to have an auto Fav teams league that is decade specific? All seasons must be chosen from a specific decade only. I understand there would be lots of repeat players, but would love to see something different.

I am starting to get bored with 3-4 Astros teams in every 1965-present league, just trying to think of ways to freshen it up.

That actually sounds like it would be a lot of fun

Re: New Favorite Teams League formats??

I made a suggestion to Guy recently about adding Favorite Teams to the Hoops League, but I think the idea I proposed would work here as well.

When you join a Hoops League, you are randomly assigned a draft slot. I would like to see that replicated for Favorite Teams Leagues in Baseball. You cannot select your franchise until your draft slot comes up. This would prevent from any doubling up of franchises. Also, there are 12 competitive enough franchises to keep leagues interesting and due to the randomness of the draft order, owners would not be able to recycle the same franchise every season.

A decade-specific fave teams or something like 1950-70, etc. would be a lot of fun as a way of working with personnel, and it would break up the repetition.

Re: Re: New Favorite Teams League forma

If you really want to break up the repetition AND get challenged, try Random Players, there are guys who NEVER get used anywhere and the talent Pool is built that there should really not be a truly dominant team.

Of course bad drafting could lead to advantages for some owners, but the Pool talent base is very thin compared to the regular leagues on PC.

I have not tried random players yet, but still wish we could explore original idea of decade specific Fav Teams league.
