No DarkElf in the playoffs? The Duques beat me two straight?

The world is coming to a end!

The world is definitely ending soon. I took out his gayness in two straight also. #45669, won it 10-6. This game also gave me a 10.0 HR :) So now The Contractors are 10/10.

So I will have to agree. Everyone find shelter now. The end of the world is near!

And I'm ready whenever Dancinns. You taking homefield or initiate 2?

well I didn't really have a chance in the playoffs this season, I hadn't trained in 43 hours when game 1 was started and I'm heading out now so I had to play game 2 (#46279) right after training and in the frickin brickyard so I lost that one also 1-3 so namrufmot wins our series 2 games to 0

inSANity isn't a lock to stay yet. []Pants can still get 10 wins and pass me on tiebreaker, but has to win all 3 remaining games. And BTB needs his team to win almost off them.

But if they do, then that marks another goal off this list. Remember I said in my HPN interview that was one of the things I was trying to do.

not the best solution, but if you have multiple computers.. you can initiate more than 1 PL or UL game at a time.. just by hitting play on 1 before the other one gets too far rendering..

Well, so now that I'm finally not in the playoffs, I move that we modify the playoff system and do away with the "wait til you hear from your opponent" crap. 2 reasons:

1. By far, the worst and most annoying thing in DTSL is, IMO, the difficulty in coordinating playoff games. Delays, aggrevation, arg, I hate it. Not always, of course, but often enough to make me post this.

2. In most cases, the team who finished higher doesn't get any advantage in the playoffs if they have to wait until they hear from their opponent. They should be free to train for and time the games they initiate around what works best for them. They're the higher seed, they deserve that advantage.

As of right now, Dream Riders is the only PVT to be sticking around. And I don't see any more moving up from PL2 (unless you count Bring It Meat, which is still semi-controlled by Angel...)

For some reason i think angel trains Bring it meat.

Bring it meat could still not advance to pl1.

I dont blame BTB if he can finish. I've had games take 30 minutes to start. Right now I have been waiting 20 minutes for the trainer to open! He lives on the east coast and has a job to go to!

I would be horrible if X loses a PL championship because of forfeits. But I think the 1907 Cubs would have won 1 of his last 2 games anyway!

Wait for the fireworks if that does happen. X will be crying his eyes out since the only thing in his life that matters is smallball.

Meat did in fact train them most of this season. I think Angel took them back on Thursday or Friday.

But yeah, there's a real good chance Meat stays in PL2. He's in 5th right now.

Yeah... I played and won the first game today after waiting forever for jdpatri but he still hasn't shown. I'm pretty sure he didn't realize he was in the playoffs and now there's no way to contact him (his email doesn't work either).

According to dancing nick, I'll move up to the finals against you and the Cornpickers. If you want to initiate 2, just go for it any time. My team is always 100% ready for a game.

If you want me to initiate 2, that's fine too. I will be starting mine in the AM if you're ready. Feel free to IM me any time.

Frankly, the Cubs have it won either way. X would be upset, and rightly so, but I don't think he has much of a shot anyway.

Not only is BTB having problems getting his games in, he couldn't train any of his teams tonight b/c DT kept crashing, so he's playing all his games without any training.

And I understand about him being east coast and all. I offered to initiate his games if has to go to bed. He didn't think he'd need the help, but we'll see.

Thanks, but isn't it a bit premature? There still is a chance that I finish 6th. We'll see what happens, but it will be nice if 3 of the 5 advancers are DTSL teams.

I'll go over the rules during our break and iron out some things. I think I will scrap the coordinate with your opponent to play playoff games. That generally works fine but in many cases it's delayed the playoffs and caused the CC to finish on Wednesday or Thursday. I want the CC finished on Tuesday...expect forfeits to be more strictly enforced during the playoffs.

I'll put up a rules thread in the DTSL forum where people can chime in on the rules and argue for/against rules.

So except for the PBTerriers (who only need 11 wins to pass you), everyone else needs 12 wins. No one can do that except On Monday, and there's no way they go on that kind of run. He has to play the Destroyers, so hopefully there's 1 loss. :) Plus your Ballers and Tequila Nights who is maxed out and on a holiday.

Okay, so maybe there's a _shread_ of a chance that you come in 6th...

True, it is only a outside chance, but On Monday/Tight Wads could win out and advance. But is he even playing his games?



And in other news, Balls Deep is going to finish a game or two out of advancing. Still, I like the run they had, and hopefully they can get out of 3rd next season.

Holy mother! I cannot believe 1907 Chicago Cubs CHOKED. One of the biggest gag jobs I can remember.

-X- wins his 2nd title in a row, BTB ties for 1st place, and Highlander loses BOTH his teams. :up:

Elves dominate PL2, and Pharoh grabs the last promotion spot! :up: I knew you'd do it (just not the way it worked out ;) )

DarkElf,

This is the 6th time Darkelf's Distroyers have won the Major League and instead of having something special for Darkelf he's giving back. He wants to donate his TWLLML prize to the purse for the next Fight Night.

Thanks Darkelf

Well, it's obviously easier than the Pro Leagues, and easier than DTSL.

I used to use these games as warm ups, and did okay. Now I'm taking the games more seriously, and I think this is my 3rd win in a row.

Funny how things work out. Of course I had to make things more interesting by losing my last two games, by one run each, but I'll take the promotion. I'm just glad that I didn't lose out on promtion to the PBTs because of ID#, especially considering I won our matchup.

Well my pl strategy is changing. I usually wait until the last night and get them all in. I only was able to get in 4 games with all my teams. luckily only 1 was demoted but 2 had great shots at moving back up to 4th and now thats gone.

Oh, well should we play all the first couple days or space them out............... just dont know yet.

For the last 2 seasons I've played ALL my PL games on the first day. Went 18-0, and 15-3 in those seasons.

I see no advantage to waiting till the last day. Yes your team may be stronger, but then so will the other team because they all usually wait till the last day too!

11-17-03, 02:28 PM
Well, as I see it, the best time to play your opponent is when they are "weakest", and since it's highly unlikely that all your opponents will be so nice as to coordinate a time for you ;) , I still think the best way is to pluck them off one at a time over the course of the season.

Waiting til the last day has the advantage that teams who are out of the running for winning a league or advancing probably don't have their strongest lineup in, so those teams should be easier to beat then. But like Mot said, since so many people wait for the last day too, you don't always get an advantage. You also have no wiggle room if SB is having problems.

Hitting everyone on the first day is probably better than the last day since people try to take advantage of the Gap, but most people are ready. Some of your opponents are just as ready as you and so waiting til later in the season is in your best interest.

Well, if you don't _want_ to train them, I'll keep going. Both teams look strong to me, so there isn't anything major I would "need to work on". One guy can't throw well, another can't run well, but really, that's all minor stuff. They look good to me.

Oh, and as you probably know by now, unpaid soccer teams aren't gaining pie, so there's nothing I can do with them. What I don't know is if their skills are locked, or if skill will continue to drop. You gotta get this thing resolved somehow.

Yeah, I did, and I wasn't about to get involved in that. But maybe now that Greek Wizard has clarified the issue, now I'll say thanks for the recognition. And maybe to point out that I've had 3 teams in PL1 in the same season in both baseball AND football, since I did the football one 4 or 5 seasons ago. :)

But like I was telling Y2K last night, if Pharoh let me ass train the Ballers this season, then I'd be able to say I had FOUR teams in PL1 this season. That is not much different that what -X- did with Peeps with Personality, since it was somewhat a group effort on that team, and Cliff actually had control of them the season before and got them into PL1.

Or you could give each of us control of all your teams for a day at a time and we could ALL say we've had 3 teams in 1st league! :banana:

I challenged one of LCDs teams in PL4 and I scored 4 runs in the 9th to tie, and went on to win in extra innings! :D

UGH! I wanna kill myself.

I won my first two PL games...
I start a third and lose 3-2...
Then I realize I never put my starters back in from Smallball Mon... :mad:

I started a fourth game and I won..

So now I'm 3-1 in PL4

Should I keep playing?? :D

Mot, if you keep going, proceed with caution and select your opponents wisely. Make sure they are a prime target to be picked off before playing them.

Depends.

Having 3 teams there is a good news bad news thing -- that's 6 guaranteed losses that have to be divied up between the 3 teams. PBBC (and inSANity) did well, but in part, at the expense of the Destroyers.

It's too bad the Destroyers weren't playing well enough. On Monday and 1979 PP were like ducks on a pond this afternoon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I really debated how I was going to play this out. I saw 3 choices:

1. Let them play all their games at once and see which team(s) survive the war. The problem with this is that if 1 team just happens to be playing poorly at that moment, they'd get killed.

2. Play just the first half of the round robin. This way, a bad day won't kill any of the teams. Then play the other half of the round robin later on.

3. Treat all games like I only own one team. Only initiate games for 1 team when I feel that team's matchup is favorable, just like I do for teams that aren't mine.

I went with option 2, although any of these three would be a fair way to do it.

6-3 means I'll probably stay put right? (as long as i dont crap out the rest of the way)

Everyone has their own stratergies and mine seems to be doing the opposite of what a sane person would do. It keeps the enemy on their toes! ;)

Being a ^ team, figure you'll need to go 6-3 in your home games.

You keep your starting pitching fresh and it could definitely happen.
