2017 Offseason

on Sun Dec 20, 2015 8:13 pm
First topic message reminder :

I've hidden the original post in the spoiler tag. This thread will serve as the offseason thread.
Old gibberish archived:

The Holidays are always a tough time to schedule games. And the playoffs being here will make this tougher with traveling and whatnot.  Thankfully, Obama has caused massive global warming, and there's little to no snow across the country to worry about.

Week 16: Runs Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. Then Xmas Eve comes in to play.
Week 17: Runs Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
Wildcard: Monday 12/8, HOPEFULLY the playoff rounds can fly by every 24 hours.
Division: Tuesday 12/29
Conference: Wednesday 12/30
Super Bowl: Thursday, New Years Eve, 12/31

Non-playoff teams need to be engaged with their team on console in each round. Once your season ends, you have to look at your coach and see about resigning him before I advance. You don't want the CPU signing a fake coach because a coach's contract ended.

New Year's Day: Hangovers abound, my family Xmas as well. Not sure when I get home to advance.


Offseason:
Free Agency Wave 1: Opens New Years when I get home.
Free Agency Wave 2: 01/02/16
Free Agency Wave 3: 01/03/16
Draft Prep
Draft: 01/04/16

All of this is pending to change because I will not force 24 hour advances on the playoff teams.  So please keep me posted, and keep your eyes on the forum. Make sure you're in the PS4 community as well.  If all games get played early, I'd much rather draft on Sunday, 01/03/16. So I might look at 12 hour Free Agency waves.  I don't like the idea of a weekday draft, and might extend the draft to the following weekend.

Skipping Seasons
The best part of a franchise mode, for me personally, is the building of a team. It's nice to start with your stock team, and then get a few draft classes under your belt. Last year we skipped all of season 3. The downside was the confidence of players depleting, and funds of your team. Confidence and funds were both mostly fixed.

The big upside is that player development sucks when you play user matches. Skipping a whole season could aid in player development.

My ideal offseason Schedule:
Wednesday: Super Bowl
Wednesday Night: Open player re-signings
Thursday Night: Open Free Agency
Friday Night: Open Free Agency Wave 2
Saturday Night: Open Free Agency Wave 3
Sunday Morning: Open Draft Prep
Sunday: Draft [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Other Topics
RELOCATION: Most likely not happening this offseason.  NFL won't vote on LA teams until next week, at the earliest. Relocation is turned off in the franchise right now. I'll only turn it on to allow the teams approved by the NFL to move.

SLIDERS: Tweaks needing made? I think pass rush is at the top of most people's lists. Penalties...I'd lean towards leaving them on, I hate not having them in game. So hard to tweak because they're called weirdly. 

ANYTHING ELSE?: Get your questions out, and let's go go gooooo to season 3.

Yeah I'd appreciate 30 as well. Crappy roads with all of the snow might delay my trip home.

Wave 3 Signings (most of them anyway)
About 75% of the way through, I gave up and only did the user signings, and the big name CPU. So some players were left out.

We are simming the preseason. So that means no player cuts. The CPU will cut your roster down to 55 players automatically.  So before the draft, each team needs 48 players or less (pending number of draft picks).

Buccaneers have 49
Panthers have 49
Redskins have 51
