Coaching Carousel is....

  1. Worth the trouble, take the chance and leave it in.

    Everyone, I haven't sent out invites yet because of something with the coaching carousel feature that concerns me a bit.

    When you first get to the offseason, there is a new CC stage where everyone has to decide if they stay at their school or pursue other opportunities. The problem is that the stage is handled in a 'draft' style, where one person is 'on the clock' and nobody else can do anything until that person goes. My concern is that unless you can guarantee that everyone is going to be online AT THE SAME TIME when you hit this stage, this could add a significant amount of time to the offseason process. Plus, my guess is that the issue people are having with CC test dynasties is due to this stage being done over time, as opposed to last night when Perry/Cheez/I were all online at the same time and knocked it out quickly without anyone having to leave and reload the OD later.

    So, since we are only using the CC feature to have possible CPU job changes, my question is whether or not having the feature on is worth the potential problems it could cause down the road. Keep in mind, once you pick to have the feature ON or OFF, you can't ever change it.

    I still plan on launching the file tonight, but it will be a bit later (maybe around 8-9pm PST if I can get away from the kids).

    I agree with you. If the setup in the offseason was different I think it would be easier.

    i do not think it is needed. We picked the teams we wanted. I don;t see myself moving. And if someone did want to we could work it out in the forum

    Yep, I see no reason for us to use Coaching Carousel.

    Well - with 6 no votes, if there aren't a slew of yes votes posted by 8pm PST I'm likely leaving the feature 'off'.

    Sorry man, but with the apparent bugs and how long the process in the offseason would take (even with none of us moving you still have to do the stage one person at a time each offseason), many of us apparently don't think it's worth the possible trouble it will cause.

    Hey - you still have CC in Night Owls though, so you got that going for you, right?

    Meh nbd. I have it in my private od. Wishlist item for 13 is to have option of users off of cc while cpu stays on. Or at least the option for the commish to bypass coaching offers stage.

    I agree, if there was a way to bypass the stage (under the assumption that the user teams would not leave their current job) I would have been all for it.

    I didn't, but I don't think it would matter.

    It will matter if you wanted your sideline coach to look a certain way for cut scenes and such but ratings for recruiting will be like 11 so it won't matter in that sense
