Help with substitution/waves


Help with substitution/waves

Hello all. I have a query about the waves set up in basketball-land. I have the first and second quart set as 'always' because I want to establish some consistency in my division of minutes, but when I get to the second half, I am attempting to set up the conditional lineups (defensive, three point, big man, little man, etc.)

My problems/questions are such :

(a) how do I set up a NOT conditional lineup for the second half? (For instance, in the 3rd quarter, with 6 minutes left; I have two lineups set up : defensive for when leading by 10 or more, three point lineup for when trailing by 10 or more. How can i get a lineup scheduled to be put in IF we are IN BETWEEN that conditional range (ie, trailing by less than 10 or leading by less than 10?

(b) And, this may answer my first question - I don't know. But, ae the 'always' ineups in the second quarter set alongside these conditional ones given MORE priority than others, or will the conditional lineups take priority, if the condition is true?

Re: Help with substitution/waves

from my experience- ALWAYS will take place over everything.

in your scenario:
lineup leading by 10 or more-- if you are worried about losing the lead, you would have to then go with trailing by 5 or more to combat it, meaning your guys really blew that lead

i would like to see a 'leading by 5 or less' or 7 or less, something like that, especially to take out Shaq and ben wallace at the end of games. But it would be good for what you described too

I think Dalpho is right, we need more conditional options. I have an idea on how to quickly integrate that, I will take a look at this and post back here.

No wonder Dalpho is so good. That is deep, haha

Ok, the additional conditional logic has been added - if you catch any issues with it, let me know.

To be clear, ALWAYS does always trigger, so if you're trying to set up a portion of the game that is fully controlled by conditions, you would have to create a few waves to cover all those conditions and no "ALWAYS" wave during that span of the game.
