    So i've done some extensive research that i've done with the build of OA this year we have some things to discuss. Here are bullet points i would like to discuss followed by some of my research.

    1. Unlock all games
    • There are an ABSURD amount of CPU/CPU games simulated when we do this. In the 82 game test OA, we're still in the first 2 weeks of the season and some CPU teams have played 30+ games already
    • These can be reset if needed (say a new guy comes in and wants one of the CPU teams)
    2. Speed
    • 58 Slow = 8 hour advances. 2K calendar will advance 3 days per 24 hours of real time
    • 58 Normal = 6 hour advances. 2K calendar will advance 4 days per 24 hours of real time
    • 58 Fast = 4 hour advances. 2K calendar will advance 6 days per 24 hours of real time
    • 82 Slow = 12 hour advances. 2K calendar will advance 2 days per 24 hours of real time
    • 82 Normal = 8 hour advances. 2K calendar will advance 3 days per 24 hours of real time
    • 82 Fast = 6 hour advances. 2K calendar will advance 4 days per 24 hours of real time
    • As you can see 58 Normal = 82 Fast
    • We can advance the league a full week if needed
    3. Number of Games
    • Again, 58 Normal = 82 Fast.
    • 58 Normal allows to change speed to Fast whenever needed
    • Only way to speed up 82 Fast is jumping calendar ahead one week.
    That's it boys, take this in and let me know what you think.

    I say 58 normal, we can hopefully get more seasons in that way

    By hoping, meaning we can switch it to Fast as frequent as possible?

    Keep in mind that on 58 normal, we would get the same amount of seasons in as 82 fast. The problem is we would probably not be able to get all of our games in because there would be more per week.

    Wasn't really meaning this to be a poll. 3 things are on the table. Number of games, pace, and whether or not to unlock all games.

    58 normal fasho. I really don't have an opinion on the unlocking games, but I dont see why it would be necessary really.

    I thought last year's format was perfect.

    One other thing to keep in mind with number of games

    58 Games = Play every team twice
    82 Games = RL schedules season one and unbalanced schedules (play your division more than anyone else) the next seasons.

    One of the bullet points says we can advance the league a week whenever we want. If that's the case could we not just go with slow, with the understanding we'll keep a quicker pace? If normal is 4 2k calendar days for every 24 hours, won't that equal to around a game a day? Isn't that too fast?

    In a 58 game schedule you average roughly about 1 game every 3 or 4 2K calendar days. There are also some stretches where you won't have a game for 7 or so 2K calendar days. Its pretty hectic because no matter how many games you choose the regular season still goes from November-April

    82 fast is intriguing. But I'm fine 58 normal

    58 Normal...but 82 fast would be interesting. Probably too many sims for my liking though.

    82 Fast. This is probably the only league I'm gonna be in when we kick off so I'd like the number of games

    58 normal seems to be the most reasonable one IMO.

    That would be weird to offer it only in 82 games. You have 2 different test OAs up right? Let me know what you find.

    58 normal gives you the same amount of games with more seasons to run...

    The number of season would be the same because the time is the same. 82 just packs more games into the same amount of time.
