Here is a question for you guys. How much of an affect does coaching have on a team? For example, if a SIM coached team is rated 50 on a scale of 100, what would you say the rating would be if it was coached by a legendary coach, good coach, average coach, and a newbie? I may try and incorporate a coaching factor into my ratings system and would appreciate any input you guys have.
try factoring the effect Alvernia's "coach" had on them this year.... you had them winning the of Penn conf and finishing with an 80ish rpi i think. and i really dont think that was out line given thier talent.
their new coach was able to coax one win out of them (and a nailbiter at that) and finished at 1-26 with 379 rpi. i tried to reach out to him but no reply. id say ghost ship but really worse than that as he set everyone to "jack three pointers and stay in the game until dead red" before going awol. i have pondered whether it has been better to have him as my lone confmate, or would i have preferred ettaE? i almost cant believe im saying this, but i think id prefer ettaE
There is an obvious flaw in my coaching effect factor in that I do not account for crap like this. We should keep a database of users like this so that I can add a line of code where if coach=fail then rating -=100. That would probably take care of it.
Etta kind of reminds me of my son. He plays NBA2k14 and gets so mad that sometimes I have to go in to calm him down. It is the only thing that can make him cry -- hit him in the head with a brick, no problem, but if the computer screws him he completely loses it. No matter how bad it gets, he is back the next day for another go with his obsession. I have a feeling that Etta is going to be around for a long time.
