How would the forum feel about this addition to DD?

SDS

Coaches are neglected and random in DD. Here is my proposal to change that.

Customizable coaches (just like CAPs) for DD that have abilities to help your team, you get -1 attribute for a +1 in another category for the entire squad. They'd be intermingled so a +1 to power would be a -1 to contact and vice versa.

+1 to speed - 1 to Stealing

+1 to fielding - 1 to reaction

+1 to h/9, -1 to bb/9

+1 to velo, -1 to control

Stuff like that. Pick up to 3 depending on the level your coach is at. Coach level is based on the wins you have, can stack abilities, only 3 picks through the entire games cycle per coach. 2 coaches per team but only one allowed to be active at any given time.

DO IT. Then I don't have Joe Random as my coach

If done like this then it's a great idea. You just can't go overboard like 2k does where you can't compete without having the boost to 3 point shooting that Steve Kerr's coach card gives you

SDS

I like the idea, though I thought this was going to be a thread on being able to field a team full of Mondesi’s

I haven't played Super Mega Baseball since the 1st game, but I believe it does something similar; coaches have contracts and various bonuses they can 'gift' to the team, but you can only have so many and so you have to pick and choose what's important to you.

Yeah and that would be the idea. Let's say its 50 wins (offline and online) for a Tier 1 coach that offers 1 attribute exchange for the whole squad. 150 wins for the 2nd tier and 500 wins for the final third tier.

Once you hit Diamond level you are given a 2nd coach with requirements being half of the first coach's requirements.

Once you pick an attribute its for that coach forever.

Its doable because it's kind of already in this game in franchise mode

Exactly. Only this way keeps it balanced as opposed to getting +3 to three different attributes.

SDS

I would be open to any ideas such as this, so as long as the less than stellar gameplay doesn't get bypassed for much needed improvements.

you'd have 3 coach slots: 1 pitching coach,1 hitting coach,1 manager
pitching coach would be pitch attributes,hitting coach would be hitting attributes
and manager would be clutch,fielding,speed,etc.
