Negro Leagues


Negro Leagues

A while back I was informed that we now have Negro League baseball forming. I cannot find any available leagues. What's with that?

Re: Negro Leagues

The blog post said he was adding one (singular) auto league that included these players, so that league probably filled up.

Re: Negro Leagues

I think there is more than 1 but I'm sure they are popular and probably full right now.

Re: Re: Negro Leagues

yeah, saw one that incorporated both MLB and the newly minted black players that was open to join a few weeks back (like a week after the announcement from MLB), so there is atleast one that is up and running right now. I didn't join though. I never trust my knowledge of super old-timey baseball players enough to feel like I can compete in those.

Re: Negro Leagues

Just opened a couple more Autos.

Re: Re: Negro Leagues

Why are these Favorite Team Leagues (NEW Budget format) having filers ?

It literraly takes weeks until we see one around and they do fill in no time.

In matters of few minutes the league got filled. Now this league has 4 filer teams for absolutely no reason...

Re: Negro Leagues

I see it happen ALL the Time- in fact I purposely avoid unfilled leagues with some Owners who I have found to ALWAYS be in Leagues that end up with 4 Fillers- They no Patience to let REAL Managers fill those slots and provide more competition-


I think the number of BOT owners needs to be reduced from up to 4 in a league to no more than 2 - These leagues with 4 BOTS frankly are a joke, if there are 4 bots I almost ALWAYS make the playoffs - but its not the challenge it should be, quick filling with BOT owners really taints winning Percentage

Re: Negro Leagues

Yeah I would agree with a lot of this. I signed up for one of the negro leagues as soon as it was created. It filled within a few hours but somehow ended up with 3 filler teams. I'm almost certain that league would have filled on its own.

I would like to see at least a 48-72 hr wait before any filler teams can be added. Maybe allow 1 then, a 2nd after another 48-72 hrs, and maybe a 3rd or 4 a while after that.

The fillers are nice in that they keep the leagues moving but I think they're being abused a bit to start the leagues as soon as possible rather than waiting at least a little while for actual people to join.

Re: Re: Negro Leagues

Sin, I would even put the Favorite Teams league to absolutely Zero fillers. They do fill by their own very quickly, and there is not any advantage about being the first user in a league vs the last one.

As for the Other leagues, I think 2 fillers is enough...

Or at least have the league pending for 24 hours before having bots allowed.


That Favorite league attached didn't took many hours and some people decided it was a good Idea to have a ridiculous amount of 4 Bots while we all know that these leagues fills in in not time and are sought after...


I personnel was looking for one of those for weeks... I was lucky enough to find a spot in it, but very unhappy to see a roster with 4 Catchers, and a team located in Baltimore with a Dodgers roster...

Re: Negro Leagues

I am dialing back bot fills a bit - overall, I'm going to limit the bot fills to allow more time for human owners to join, and specifically for Favorite Teams Budget Draft leagues, I am only going to check once a day, and only if there are a couple spots open - considering how fast these are filling in baseball, we could easily have leagues with no bots.

Re: Re: Negro Leagues

I had another thought, if Auto Leagues Filled first and then the draft happened once it was filled, with a lottery process random draw it would be cool

Re: Re: Negro Leagues

A feature where we could pick and take control of Bot team could be fun.

It can be a fun challenge, just to see if we can turn a bad team around just by using Free Agency leftovers ,etc...
