It needs to be re-worked...
The current system of rating points is dated, stale, and unappealing to most of us. Ranked Seasons needs a shot in the arm. Here's my proposal
NEW REGULAR SEASON AND PLAYOFF SYSTEM
All players start in the regular season pool whereby you must win 12 out of 20 games to "advance" to the playoffs. As soon as you win your 12th game, you're in, and move on to a Divisional Series best of 5. (Rewards tiers based on number of wins, culminating with a Wild Card pack if you make playoffs).
Divisional Playoffs where you have to win 3 out of 5 to advance. You only play other players who are also in divisional round, unless a similar player is unavailable in which case you would be matched up with the next available. (Earns a DS Rewards Pack if successful)
League Championship Series: Same rules as above, best of 7 (Earns a CS Reward Pack if Successful)
World Series: Same rules as above best of 7 (Earns a World Series Rewards pack if successful)
NEW PITCHER SELECTION METHOD (No more Kluber/Newhouser every game)
Now, rather than choosing your pitcher, you have to build a staff. Once you build your staff, you lock it in. Your staff remains intact unless you move on or are eliminated. Voluntary forfeits allowed.
- Regular Season: You build a 5 man rotation, and each man 1 through 5 starts in order regardless of opponent.
- Division Series: You build a 3 man rotation
- Championship Series: 4 man rotation
- World Series: 4 man rotation
You are allowed to bring in starters for relief appearances at a severe energy penalty imposed on that pitchers next start. Relief appearance will feature that pitchers current energy level at decreased velocity and break.
LINEUP CHANGES AND ROSTERS
I move for hitters to be moved in and out of your roster at your leisure, although Im very open to other ideas. The reason for the pitching restrictions is to implement more pitching variety into RS.
NUMBER OF ENTRIES
You can repeat the season as often as you like, although you can only earn rewards once per RS cycle.
LETS START A MOVEMENT! KEEP THIS THIS POST AT THE TOP!
