Season 50 - Some Additional Changes

Post by GM-crowfan65 » Sat Jan 01, 2022 8:02 am

I have spent the last month or so looking into both extras and form to see if we can make some improvements.
We were hoping to be able to announce these prior to EOS but wanted to make absolute sure the numbers stood up.
The only reason we are allowing the changes to go in now rather than waiting till next EOS is we feel it would not change the way you went about playing the game.

EXTRAS

Most of the issues with extras is the multiples so we have reduced the multiples for LB and B so that you will see more 1s and less 2,3,4 off the single delivery. In testing it reduce the amount by approx 10%. We will continue to look further to make sure it is as realistic as possible.

FORM

Whilst form has worked (numerically) as we intended the form of opening bowlers appears to have been higher, partially because of the points for taking the wickets of bats higher in the order. Also the numbers in the coding had T20 wickets some 20% higher.
So we have reduced all of those down and on top of the reduced the ratio for turning fantasy points into form points.
In testing the first 10 weeks of Season 49 we saw less players on expert/outs and more in the band between avg-capable.
Only a handful more players dropped below this so it basically tightened the curve.

We will monitor these two changes in the next season or so to make sure they are working as intended.
Thanks again
