Thanks for all the comments guys, yeah I will stick with this one, only 29 game season so should be into the second season soon enough. I woulda kept going with the knicks except i found it too easy to win with them, when i should be sucking, so with the Pistons its ok to win lol.

Im gonna have some prediciton challenges similar to The X to get Nlsc players incorporated into this dynasty.

Anyway should be updates today (Y)

The quality on that looks fine... I don't know if it'd make a difference, but you could save the individual pictures as "Save For Web" before you turn it into an animation. That way the frames would be smaller sizes and I'd assume that'd reduce the overall size of the animation.

Alright one of the reason I made this a 29 game season was to get through it quickly so I could get into future seasons and include NLSC players in the drafts. I will do this pretty much the same way as X, although like I started to do in my 05 Bucks dynasty I will start the prediction challenges from the start of the season to decide who the NLSC rookies will be.

However for the first draft, there will be about 5 NLSC rookies who are already locks(mainly Vets and people who have supported my dynasties for a long time) don't be put off if your not one of these people, as I obviously cant put everyone if the first draft. Those 5 or so people should still play as your points will determine the power you have over your career like X has come up with in his dynasty.

Ok so the first way to earn points will be to guess the amount of wins the Pistons will have at the end of the month of November. However you can choose when to make your prediction, ie you could choose to wait until two games have been played before making your prediction so that you feel more confident in your guess. The draw back of waiting is that maximum amount of points you can win is reduced shown below.

Image

So as you can see if you were to make your prediction before any of the games had been played and you got it exactly right you would earn 25 points, if you were one win off you would get 15 anymore wins off and you get no points, if you were to wait until there were only 4 games left and got the exact amount of wins you would get 10 points, 1 win off you would get 9 points.

Also you should note that once you have made your prediction you cannot change it, so its up to you to decide wether its worth the risk making you prediction early on.

I will record the predictions in this post, along with the current months schedule for the Pistons and the points table for the current month as it will change depending on how many games are in the month.

Anyway im not sure if the points amounts are a good balance so feel free to give me ideas for this (yes im talking to you X ;) )



NOTE: You predict the amount of wins the Pistons will have at the end of the month, not the outcome of each game. ie Pistons will win 6 out of 7 etc. Also remember oyu dont have to make your prediction now, you can wit till X amount of games have been played. I will announce when there is only about a day left before a game is posted.

Also ive decided to add and 5 point reward for making a prediction otherwise there could be alot of people that get no points at all (Y)


Thanks for Jugs for pointing that out, i didnt make myself clear enough

Points Avaliable for December

Predictions:

6 Games Left



5 Games Left

4 Games Left

I predict you go 1-0 in October & 5-1 in November....you have a good team, no excuses, eh? :wink: the 5-1 will cover me for the other likely results, 6-0 & 4-2 :P

I feel the 'power' coming :mrt:


EDIT: That means you will go 6-1 for the extended month of November :wink:
