I'm with GM on this one. Really, I am not a big baseball fan, I think the last time I was into baseball was back when the blue jays won back to back world series. The lockout the year after killed baseball for me.
That being said, I think the HBD is by far the best game that WIS has on this site. The depth that they go into, the various ratings of the players, signing of the coaches, developing minor leaguers. I probabally have the worst team in my league this year and I'm still loving it every day because I can go in and scout international prospects, see if any of my minor leaguers are ready to be moved up for a tase of the majors, see who is injured and who I want to sign on for next year.
This being said, imagining this as a hockey dynasty has had me drooling for months now (hockey dynasty has always had me drooling but getting back into HBD has just made it even more so). Drafting a much needed goalie in the first round, looking to sign undrafted college players or players from Russia and Finland, swapping out lines and goalies when they are going through slumps.
Here is the thing, as much as I L.O.V.E progressive and regressive hockey leagues in SLH its just not the same as a dynasty, your team is doing well, your team isn't doing well you can auto-pilot it for a while, its only those teams in the middle that get the joy of watching their team and making switches every day. Would your team take Mario Lemeuix, Wayne Gretsky or Steve Yzerman off of the top line? Probabally not because you know their stats for the year. Would your Hockey dynasty take their top line 40 goal scoring all star off of the top line? If you have a rookie that has been on a 6 game point streak then probabally.
The hardest part for me is seeing just how good HBD is and how good a hockey dyansty could be. I can honestly say, as I have before that if they were to make hockey dynasty simiar to that of HBD I'd probabally have 3-5 teams running at all times.
Earth to WIS thats between 300 and 500 a year. From one person!
