    What do you guys think so far?


    My opinion is that the season is to long and the games are slightly to long. I know _MG_ agrees with me. We ran a successful league last year. It was 25 game seasons with 7 game playoffs. It keeps it fresh. I can't See how you guys are not getting burned on a 58 game season. Remember we have to do this every season and 7 game of playoffs.



    I am strongly considering making the Change.

    I agree, BK. I have been in plenty of leagues and season length is key to success. There is no way this league survived with the way it is now. It just takes too much time and required too much of a commitment...these are not short games. They take time. And like BK said, the draft...offseason...playoffs...all of it keeps the league fresh and moving. I vote for an immediate restart so we keep our momentum going and shortening the schedule so we can get through multiple seasons this release.

    One thing i'd advise as an outsider that i'm sure the leadership knows; the OA schedule plays from April - June (counting playoffs) no matter what you choose for the season length. So there will be long waits of just sitting around with no games if 29 game season is chosen. 2K tried to curb that by implementing a "Advance 1 Week" feature, but that has been confirmed as being broken and can cause the OA to do weird things such as freeze the file in the ensuing offseason, skip a full season, and/or strip the commish his ability to force winners and reset games.

    so what exactly would you advise to do then? sounds like a no win situation either way...too long of a season or a season in which everyone plays and then sits.

    would be nice if 2k made a competent schedule for their online franchise for once.

    If you go to 29 i would think playing it on Fast would be a must. Only way to slightly keep guys slightly busy.

    His team was loaded without Dwight though if I remember correctly. Ty Lawson winning the MVP and the Suns winning the title was pretty realistic.

    If we decide to reboot.. I think people should have the right to their old team that they chose. If a team opens up then it is free game I belive!

    The Options for games is 14,29,58, & 82.
    29 is probably your best bet.

    I'm still here...not much to talk about between the OA servers being down and inactivity. But I do like the shorter season idea.

    Im still, well interested. I havnt got the game yet, waiting on my paycheck from the government shutdown. I think a shorter season would be great so we can get more of an opportunity to build teams through the draft/FA
