wish list


wish list

I know this has probably been mentioned. And maybe its only me. If so, so be it.
I would like to see a cap on the number of duplicate franchises there can be in favorite team auto leagues.
I am in one where there are 3 Cubs teams and 3 Redsox teams of the 12 entrants.
I usually look to see what teams have been chosen and choose a different one. Thats just me.
A while back I was the Indians and another user joined late and took the Indians. I think I won 114 games during the regular season and beat that team 13 times head to head.
Of course they swept me in the first round. Burned my short hairs to the roots!

Oh well there's my rant. Sorry if I wasted anyones time who reads it. Then again, no I'm not. LOl!

Re: wish list

Agree 100%. I am in the same league, you forgot to mention 2 Pirate teams. So 8 of 12 teams are 3 franchises. I was once in a Fav team playoff where I played a Houston team in wildcard round, division round, and World Series, which I lost. Faced Cole or Verlander like 9 playoff games.

Re: wish list

No waste of time, Jim. I completely agree. I used to love favorite team leagues, but have not done one in a year because it seems like most leagues only have 6-8 franchises being used. I think that if we cannot prevent an owner from selecting the same franchise, they should at least not be able to pick the same season. If the 1927 Yankees are already being used, you can choose NY, but cannot use that season.

Re: Re: wish list

Favorite Team leagues can be fun... but it seems like there is tons of the same franchise in there, it kind of ruins it... its been months since I played them.... I was tired of trying to play with average franchise and having to face 5 or 8 baseball teams of the same franchise that were built by Montgomery Burns in the league...

A mix of random players pool and franchise draft could be great.... 30 rounds, no multiple franchise, a balanced players pool with max rank points allowed like auto drafts are, that will allow every franchise to be almost as competitive

It does need to be fix... how often you will see Verlander vs Verlander in game 7 of a playoff series...
