May 28, 2023

  • Major Improvement: Draft experience overhaul!
    • Webpage does not reload after every pick anymore! Draft table auto-updates when picks are made, without needing to refresh the page
    • Draft Board player actions (add, remove, set rank, min round, and move up/down) do not reload the whole page anymore
    • CPU picks are not automatically instantly simulated anymore! CPUs can now be on the Draft Clock until the Admin chooses to sim their picks.
    • Added new controls for the Admin during the draft: Sim Until Next User Pick and Sim Until End of Draft
    • Once the draft has started, the Draft Clock will continue "ticking" and move to the next pick automatically, regardless if any users are logged in to the website!
    • If the draft clock expires OR if a user pick is Simmed, and that user has Auto Pick Draft Board disabled, then the pick will attempt to come from the Draft Board first, before the CPU makes a decision.

For example, the first PFL draft (after the first season, before the 2nd season) is now named "Season 2 PFL Draft" or "2024 PFL Draft" if the first season is Season 1 / 2023. This matches more closely to real life where the "-YEAR- PFL Draft" is FOR that upcoming season, not named after the season that just finished. @alienufo

May 10, 2023

  • New: Consistency is now capped at -15 instead of -20
  • New: All existing players received a one-time 25% CON improvement
  • Background: After adding Chemistry, the combination with existing Consistency was too severe. Also I didn't like that players could be SO far off from their OVRs during a game. So the CON range was simply condensed.
  • Bug fix: Sometimes scouts would not generate scouting reports during week advance

May 9, 2023

  • New: Added Team Chemistry rating to all players!
    • Background: To help make players less replaceable in the game, each player now has an OVR modifier called Team Chemistry (CHM) that must be improved over time spent on a team.
      This also adds value to veterans (or any players) who have been with a franchise a long time.
    • CHM is an OVR modifier from -7 to +2 that reflects a player's familiarity with his current team
    • Newly-aqcuired players (signed, drafted, traded for) will start with -7 CHM because they don't know the new playbook, system, teammates, etc
    • CHM increases based on number of weeks a player has been with a team, up until +0. Schedule is below:
      • 0 weeks with team: CHM = -7
      • 1 weeks with team: CHM = -5
      • 2 weeks with team: CHM = -4
      • 4 weeks with team: CHM = -3
      • 8 weeks with team: CHM = -2
      • 16 weeks with team: CHM = -1
      • 31 weeks with team: CHM = 0
    • CHM will increase an additional +1 if a player is on a team when a season advances
    • CHM maximum for any player is +2
    • All players who leave a team (cut, traded, or free agents) are immediately reset back to -7 CHM
    • Tip: Hover over CHM modifier value to see how many weeks the player has been with the current team
    • NOTE: This change is retroactive for all existing leagues
  • New: Added Pressure Rating to Pressure Kicks
  • Improvement: Happiness no longer affects players OVR, but does still affect their willingness to re-sign
  • Bug fix: Fantasy Draft picks were being reordered after the fantasy draft completed (fixed for new leagues only)

  • Bug fix: Scouting Reports hints about player Potential was always a negative comment. (Fixed only for new reports after this update)

    • If enabled, CPU teams will still make decisions based on OVR, but human users won't be able to see OVRs.

    • This is the ONLY option in the game (so far) where the CPU would have an advantage of information over human users
