Team Attendance more influenced by roster/results

Post by SICHLCommish » Wed Jul 26, 2017 3:11 pm

This has been an ongoing issue for us for many seasons.

Crappy teams still make money. LOTS of money. They sell out games even when they have farm players on their roster and have lost almost all their games all season. They make as much money as winning teams with star players.

Can we get an options slider to increase the effect of a good/bad roster and good/bad W-L record on the attendance figures (and thus finances)?

Are you using morale and star power in your league?

We set Morale to the lowest setting, as per the recommended settings in the re-rates package. We've found that even at this low setting, morale seems to still have quite an effect on games.

This is the first time I've heard of "star power", so no I don't think we've used it - is it new in ver. 3?

It's been around since version 2. Did you play with team Popularity setting also?
