Thread: Survey: three things that would make CSFBL better

    Re: Survey: three things that would make CSFBL better

    I would like to add:

    Non-forgetful scouting. If you have a scout that you know is great, and then can't afford to pay him and get a scout that you know is bad (or no scout at all), you should "remember" what the good scout told you, not scratch your head and no longer be able to tell who's good or not. Maybe have the actuals in the "history" tab reflect what the scout at the time saw (maybe with a note of what scouting level there was at the time), and have a toggle for the potentials between current scouting and best scouting (that has existed since player was drafted). For owners that don't own the player, they'd see it as it is now, according to their current scouting.

    If I know I'm losing all or part of my scout I take screen shots of scouted numbers before it takes place.

    Me too, I save it all in an excel spreadsheet, and even notate how much scouting I had for each year's data. But, this game wants to get away from excel, so...

    Re: Survey: three things that would make CSFBL better

    I've been on the site for a little more than 6 months now and certain things bothered me when I first joined. No injuries? Top 2 teams of every division go to the playoffs? Although I play fantasy baseball and injuries are huge, I actually kinda like no injuries on this site. In fantasy baseball, it's about your own scouting and how you can adapt to injuries and underperforming players, but on CSFBL, I see it more as a board game now. You have your players and some can underperform, but luck of the injury bug won't derail your season. Your team won't have the easy cop out of "oh well if I didn't have this guy blow out his arm, I woulda won" that almost all owners exclaim every year. You know what you are getting playing time wise and have to manage that. I like it now. As for the playoff structure, I've thought about that too and initially wanted one exactly like the MLB, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought it wouldn't change how many series there are. Would the number 1 seed face off against the division winner/wild card winner in the second round? With only 2 divisions per conference, I think the structure now makes the most sense. If you restructure the divisions, then that's another story, but I don't mind it this way.

    There are things I instantly noticed that I still think should be integrated. Pinch hitting and running I think are huge. I constantly try to have a lefty sub on my bench because I want some balance, but he isn't utilized as much as he should. I won't name drop other sites, but selecting which players can be subbed out and which bench players can be used to pinch hit or run is a simple system. I know after some time we will want to make it more complex (like the players saying individual settings like toast or base stealing), but just having that option of pinch hitting or running after a certain inning is a good start.

    Free agency or rule 5 draft. I've been seeing this here and there and I personally think it should be integrated to some extent. I'm in a league where they integrate mandatory free agency for players that hit a certain age. My suggestion is to make a commissioner tool for these unique leagues so they can run their leagues a little smoother. You can do a lot on this site if you're willing to put in the time, but that's how people get burned out. I'm not a commissioner, so I don't know what it looks like, but adding in a tool so all players of a certain age, or experience, or their MLB service will be dropped. Maybe players of a certain age in the minors should be dropped or rule 5 draft where owners can steal other players but have to use them or they go back to the original team. I just want there to be options for commissioners so they can have free agency, rule 5 draft, or recruit style drafting. Maybe the commishes of these leagues (CWS, PGML, RTTB as some examples) don't mind the work and maybe it's a lot easier than I think, but if not, I'd like for them to speak up and get some kind of tool to make their leagues a little easier to run.

    I saw live drafts as well, but you could just force everyone to get skype or another online thing and do a live draft that way. The autonumbering system that's in place would make it easy to drop the guys being drafted as the draft goes along. Just my two cents and a couple of suggestions (1 that I think is doable and another that may be too complex to even attempt)
