Missing games

on Wed Apr 30, 2014 2:52 pm
I figured I could start a discussion about what to do if someone misses games since I have a question about it. 

I personally think if someone doesn't show up and there is a way for the other guy to play the cpu, that would be the best way to go about it. But if someone continuously misses games then they get penalized. Obviously since its almost summer people are going to start going to go on vacations so there are going to be some conflicts...

Yea most def. I am expecting everyone to get 1 game completed per day. I don't think that's too impossible lol As for people missing games... yea if someone is a no show then that person will face the CPU. 

If they are a repeat offender then most likely they will get the boot.

We shall see sir! But CPU will me on a higher difficulty so don't expect an easy W from a CPU. I am also gonna allow the option to use the quick count feature vs ONLY the CPU. So if you're stuck in like a 3 or 4 game series vs a CPU... quick count would be a good option to use.

There's a pretty organized league over at operation sports. They only allow 12 user teams which I think is a great idea. I'll link you later when I get home.

Is there a specific reason they only allow 12 user teams? I feel like the more active players the better.. but I guess at the same time the more you have the more conflicts and issues that can come up..

That's exactly why. I think baseball is a different beast for online dyntasies.

Has anyone played in one? Any lag?

This is going to be an NL Central party!  The Reds are looking forward to throw at, I mean pitching to, the Dead birds.  

I think if you schedule a game and don't show up you should go on auto.  you also have to remember that it is also summer and people will be working. So communication is key to scheduling games.  That's what makes the madden lg i am in so successful.

Another note - I like how the Lg above gives you 4 days to play a 4 game series against your opponent.  Have we considered anything like that?  Either way I'm fine with what you decided commish.

The dead birds!? lol.. how many championships does your team have? Oh yeah... #CardinalNation

But I really like the idea of the 4 days to play a 4 game series, or maybe say 3 days for each series, so even if there is a conflict instead of playing the computer maybe they could play 2 games in one day.. I'm just agreeing with bwidow, I think havoc should consider doing that... would limit conflicts. But either way communication is key scheduling games so we gotta make sure we all do that

I lived in STL when the Cards won their last game. I was at game 7 when the won.  So the Cardinals have a piece of my heart. however, I love the NATS more!

However, I wanted be in a division where the rivalries will be fierce and I believe I chose wisely.
