    Season 3 Structure

    With season two coming to a close shortly I thought it was time to have a look at some possibilities for season three. I'm going to raise two alternatives and let the managers discuss what is preferable.

    Option 1
    Keep it the same as this season, we have 20 weeks for the season which includes alternating FC and OD fixtures each week, plus one week for play offs and then a couple of weeks for the all star series.
    Length of Season: about 24 weeks

    Option 2
    We move up to two games per week and increase the competitions to home and away each form. That way you would play 14 matches in each form, I'm thinking One Day on Monday's and First Class on Thursday's. We would have a two week block in the middle of the season to stage the Twenty20 competition and then 1 week for play offs and a couple of weeks for the all star series.
    Length of season: about 18 weeks

    Obviously in option 2 we are getting 8 more matches in 6 less weeks, this would mean greater involvement from managers in that you would now be expected to name a side twice per week and would obviously only ave about three days to pick it.

    Please vote on the poll and also add your suggestions.

    One of WCCs greatest aspects is that it's simple and you don't have to pour time into it.

    That said, there always has been trouble with submissions and commitment from some managers and that will always be a problem regardless of format IMO, and I think there are enough committed managers floating around to justify two games a week.

    To make things simpler, could there be one thread for both formats (and each division) so you can submit both teams at the same time?

    Would personally love 2 games per week, just because I hate waiting a week for one match.

    Saying that though you might have increased non-submittals which could evidently be a problem.

    Always the possibility of getting people to name OD and FC sides at the same time, and then doing injuries at the end of the round.

    yeh would probably how it would be done, after thinking about it I'd probably put team sheets for both forms up on the Thursday so you'd have until Monday to get the one day teams in and a week for FC. injuries would also cover a game week and not one match.

    Definitely like 2 games per week, but i think the overload on Simon simming the game would be quite enormous. I know he wouldn't have suggested unless he thought he was capable of it but i think its going to be tough.

    Apart from that, i don't mind 2 games per week. Will be good.

    2 games per week. Can't stand waiting until Wednesday each week to get the results, and I definitely think we've got committed managers to handle 2 days a week.

    I think I can handle simming two games per week. It only takes about half an hour to sim a round and I can do that twice a week no problems. Just things likle player of the year points and injuries will only get updated once a week.

    I actually think the reason that activity levels and some of the non submittals are caused by a lack of games. Only having one match per week is one of the reasons for people losing interest imo, so giving managers more to talk about and more games can only be a good thing.

    Agreed. More games should cause more interest.

    Personally I think that people have to make this as interesting as they can. If people wonder why people arent posting then maybe they should post. I voted for the same because as soon as the game becomes a burden people leave.

    Of course Im open to more games(which means less weeks)

    Cant wait til tasmania have the best team in div 2 so i just might have to wait is all

    If there are no more suggestions then we'll go with Option 2 as I've explained it.
