Preferred Quarter Length

Postby Andrew on Wed Nov 07, 2018 8:59 pm

What's everyone's preferred quarter length this year?

As I mentioned in the NBA Live 19 topic, I'm still running with 12 minute quarters, though when it comes to MyLEAGUE, I may end up using stats normalisation (if not a healthy amount of simming) to get through seasons quicker. Generally speaking though, I still play 12 minutes out of habit.

I either go for 8 or 10 because on MyLeague I'm a stat guy but for MyCareer I go 5 so I can get my VC grind on.

I also use the normalize played to sim stats too

Is that effective? I've always found that playing longer quarters allows me to better pad my stats and get more VC.

12 minutes quarters, have to play what the real pros play. With that being said, if I am doing a quick youtube video (Highlights), I'll do 8 or 6 minute quarters.

The 1.1k wage I get after each game is the majority of my earnings so for me yes.

Fair point. The amount of VC you get for stats admittedly isn't that much.

I use 12 minutes and only play MyLeague. Tho if the lead is 20+ points I just sim to end of the game because it's just boring to me.

Also having lots of fun with Sonics expansion team. Managed to trade for Blake Griffin using my expiring contracts to let Detroit get out of that horrific contract. They were also below .500 so no playoffs for them

Given the time difference, I'm guessing I'll end up missing out as well.

Always played 8min with normalize played to sim stats in MyLeague and realistic player release and FT %. Honestly get pretty realistic games like that with believable stats. Games usually end up in the 90-110 point range with team FG% obviously depending on lots of variables but anywhere between 37-55%
