Re: How do you deal with tanking?

Convoluted is a word that most applies here. You're the commish if you see someone setting a clearly suboptimal lineup you message them privately as a warning. They do it twice you remove their 1st. The rule is simple "Teams are required to put forth a competitive lineup on a weekly basis as judged...

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

PP (all teams) has the 4th place finisher picking last and the season champ picking 3rd. :lol: PP (non-playoff teams) has the 1 and 2 swap with the 5 and 6, so the team that went 1-13 still wouldn't pick first. :think: I dont think anyone would suggest using potential points for playoff teams (or a...

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

Regarding this loser's bracket, I'm unclear why the teams that finish the regular season 5th to 8th in the standings in a 10 team league are in. What teams make the playoffs- 1-4 ad 9th and 10th? Ie the 4 worst teams of the regular season and the top 2. The loser's bracket should be the non playoff...

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

Just a few thoughts on some of the things you said, im not trying to attach you at all. 1. Pontential Points - you are correct that it doesnt prevent owners from not setting optimal lineups (I'm not sure anything does) but it does take the incentive away. By not setting your best lineup you will pr...

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

I hope something in this thread helps you end lineup tanking. I've only had it happen twice over the years and it caused a LOT of issues for obvious reasons. Both of those leagues changed to potential points and the we've had no issues since. Having someone manually police lineups is subjective and...

Why are we still trying to convinvce the OP that his league settings are bad? He doesn't want to listen.
I've already said I wanted to change the system, I just that I don't like PP as an alternative.

If you feel this thread is pointless, please leave it.

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

For what it’s worth, I would consider a Rookie Draft to be the annual draft that makes rookies available for the first time. This is of course in a league where all, or at least the majority of, a teams roster remains with them. Free Agents being included in this case should be low value guys and g...

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

So this isn't even a dynasty league? You should have said that from the very beginning. Is it a redraft league? A keeper league? How many players do you keep? We could have save a lot of time and trouble if you would have said what kind of league this was in your original post. It depends on how yo...

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

You position the order and final standings in an odd way, so not sure I’m following correctly, but will note that a rookie draft being a snake draft is also counter productive. That too should be changed. If I’m following all components correctly, that league sounds like a debacle. I don't think mo...

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

Seriously this rule is insane. Massive, massive incentive for middling teams to try to finish right outside the playoffs. Makes it difficult for bad teams to rebuild. Can easily result in a very good (but slightly unlucky) team getting 1.01. You might be correct in saying this about a true dynasty ...

Re: How do you deal with tanking?

Haven't seen an alternative I like yet so the rule will stand in the meantime. :kanyeshrug: Pretty much every option out there has been posted. It seems you came in expecting validation of your rule, which consensus agrees doesn't stop tanking. I don't need validation. The league has a full complem...
