In one of the engine updates, WIS made the decision to artificially force teams closer to their mean expected performance in the 2nd half. IMO, it is one of the unwritten rules of any sports simulation that you do NOT do this. I think it's one of the worst decisions WIS has ever made. So if you're an underdog, and you overperform in the 1st half, the RNG is forced to be biased against you in the 2nd half. And vice versa for the favorite. Forcing results like this is just bad, IMO.
