dont have the time to play 161 full 9 inning games. what is a good way to play? for example, for NBA 2K, i just sim to the 4th qtr and play the 4th qtr regardless what the score is.
anything similar you guys use for franchise?
Play one game and quick manage 5. That way you play every starter.
I play every fourth game and if I'm up big or down big... I will super sim a few innings or the rest of the game if I'm up or down 5 runs or more..
I like to do the full 9 inning games. but I only play maybe every 4th or 5th game. my seasons take a long time, as a result. but I'm making roster moves and stuff along the way. ALSO the White Sox rotation is not the greatest, LOL, so I mainly like to pitch with Giolito or Keuchel and I sim most of the starts for Gio Gonzalez, Reynaldo Lopez, etc
I usually sim the pitching and play when my team is hitting. If I get up or down several runs I'll sim to the end. I sim maybe half of the games outside of division play as well. The bigger my lead is on the division the more games I sim.
I play ONE full franchise game every/other day so playing full season isn't too much to handle. Try FAST PLAY for presentation and/or QUICK COUNTS if you're playing multiple games per day
Pick a few pitchers in your rotation and only play their games.
I’ve created a kind of crazy system. I do a random number generator. 1-9 is player lock on that position 1 Pithcer 2 Catcher 3 1B etc. number 10 is a super sim, 11 is play all batters sim pitching 12 is play all pitchers sim batting and unlucky 13 I play the full game. It mixes it up pretty well.
Another way I’ve done it with a number generator is to do 1-9 and sim to the inning that it gives me and play from there.
I like to see the player progression and how draft picks turn out, so I sim a lot. My goal is to get through each season as quickly as possible to see how players progress.
I do a lot of Player Lock. Those are short games, and it's fun to play and up and coming prospect. I'll often play minor league playoff elimination games. Otherwise, I would consider just playing games against a team you're trailing in the division, or a hated rival.
