    I'm for a shorter season, 90-120 games.

    What's good? More seasons simmed, quicker rebuilds.

    I like 120. This with 7 day sims is about 25 sims which to me won't lose anyone's interest that is out of it.

    nothing shorter tho. But I am fine with longer I just think we run the risk of losing some people's interest midway thru and 3/4 way thru the season if it's too long

    The 120 games leagues I am in work great. Long enough without dragging on too long. I would be fine with a longer season if that is what everyone wanted but I wouldn't want to go under 120 games personally.

    This is baseball we are talking about, right? lol

    120 games is WAY too short for a baseball season. Too easy for a team to get hot and sneak into the playoffs. 120 games won't allow the good teams who come down on the wrong side of the injury wagon to make a push at the end of the year.

    I dunno if i can wrap my head around that short of a season.

    That said, I prefer 156 games for a 16 team league but voted for 162 since it has the best chance of not letting us end up with a really short season.

    The only thing is this isn't really baseball. It's a baseball sim. And in this day and age the OOTP community is dwindling for whatever reason. And it's harder and harder to keep leagues full and re-fill them. 162 games with smaller sims (7 or 10 days) it's just too long and like I mentioned above you want to keep guys active 100% or as close to it as possible.

    Thats my only reasoning I like 120

    but as a broken record I, myself don't care as long as 120 is the smallest we go!

    Assuming we don't use interleague play, we play each team our league 22 times that would be 154 games.

    If the league is interesting enough, you won't have problems holding interest.

    120 games is too short IMO.

    I think you see so many leagues having trouble staying full because most have 30 or more teams. With a 16 team league, you won't have as much difficulty keeping it full.

    I said this in the chat but I like comparing to real life. That said, 156 isn't taking that many at bats out of the hands of guys so I'd be fine with that as well. 120 is WAY too short.

    I think a 162 game schedule is a good thing, but like others i think the key is going to be the frequency and amount simmed per time. Leagues lose people because they tend to draaaaaaaag
