    Suggestions

    Well it appears alot of you have been putting suggestions across in various threads about what should happen to WCC, and with a Board meeting around the corner it's a good chance for you all to have your say and then we (the board) can talk about them in the meeting.

    Please note that any sensible idea will be put forward in the meeting, but nothing is certain to be implemented just because a few of you agree the idea in this thread etc

    Whatever decisions are made, I think that we need to keep things simple.
    WCC is a monster that has almost grown out of control in that a lot of work needs to be done by quite a few people. I suspect that for some, it has become a chore rather than an enjoyable aside. When this starts happening, the whole thing is in danger of collapsing.
    I speak from experience on this one!

    I can say that alot of the painful work will be weeded out after this season with the intro of the sim...

    Movements from 1 club to another will be easy with a extra to the program made by Sri, also the Averages will be updated automatically by the sim, and also all the league Games will be run by me next season with the sim saving a heap of time....

    But i agree with you Graham that only minor changes are needed, basically cause the game seems to be working the way it is....

    While on the topic of the sim a nice update m8.....
    Mid season trades are a definite possibility...but the down side being the averages would not be saved on a per team basis.
    That is If Darden switches over to SA mid season then his averages would not indicate how many he scored 4 Mumbai and how many for SA separately.

    And yes..sorry Rich if its drifting the main topic away..Didnt wanna start a new thread just to mention this..:P

    Just a couple of things i wouldnt mind seeing discussed at the meeting.

    1. The VB Cup - For some reason i dont find the VB Cup very interesting, maybe its the format or because i get eliminated in the first round every year. One of the aspects that i do like about the competition it that u get to play teams outside ur division but for most teams u only get to play one game. So maybe the format could be changed so there are small groups with the top of each group advances, like the World Cup (Soccer), u get the idea.

    2. Betting - Any chance of seeing it return or some other optional competition for managers like a tipping comp of something.

    3. Finances - There was a lot of talk about it a couple of months ago. Is it part of the WCC future?

    Will post more if i have anymore good ideas.

    The World Cup Soccer format is what will be implemented next season, which is why it will be run mid week...
    There may be a slight change in the group sizes but other than that, that is the format it will be based on..

    2. Betting - Any chance of seeing it return or some other optional competition for managers like a tipping comp of something.
    Hasn't really been discussed but i guess if we nutted out some rules right from the start then i guess it could be a possibilty...
    We will address this at the meeting...

    3. Finances - There was a lot of talk about it a couple of months ago. Is it part of the WCC future?
    At this stage no, i think it will be a couple of seasons away if it ever comes in... I cannot see a simple plan to introduce as yet, and until i do then it won't be looked at....

    There's no need for me to reiterate my points GB, since I'll be at the meeting anyway!

    Yeah but 24 of the managers wont be, isn't it fair for them to have their 2 cents worth on it, maybe all those 24 hate the idea but because 4 people at the meeting like it, it gets implemented.

    But surely the idea of a board is to run things and make these decisions?

    You don't see the cabinet discussing things in public with the general public do you?

    Certainly the final decisions will be made by the board but it is a good idea to get the views of some of the other managers on different issues. The board can then make a more informed opinion and other good ideas can be taken on board.
