it's all about 'calibration' - they have some sensible factors programmed into the engine but are heavy handed in the 'calibration' (or relative weighting) of those factors and therefore **** all can happen and they'll just shrug

also they don't give two bat farts in a day time cyclone thunderstorm worth of a rat turd of **** about this game so...

I noticed in tonight's playoff game that the Mavs had 8 turnovers and the Spurs had 5. Does anyone know why WIS cranks up the turnovers?
Honestly, they really don't crank up the turnover's, at least not as much as most people here seem to think. according to this list, the average team turns it over about 15 times a game in the nba (look at around the fifteenth ranked team) http://www.teamrankings.com/nba/stat/turnovers-per-game

considering that it seems that sim league usually has maybe 20% more possessions, I'd expect somewhere in the ballpark range of about 18 turnover's per game if the turnover per possession rate remains similar.

now go look at teams in your simleagues and see how many turnover's they average. the amounts aren't unreasonable.

for the leagues i'm in, the median values are as follows:

17 turnover's per game
19 turnover's per game
18 turnover's per game

Two separate OL teams.  One team has rookies worth 2.8M, 1800 minutes.  Other team has rookies worth 4.3M, 2800.  Why do OL's have rookies again when there can be that type of variance?  That's kinda absurd.

"Veteran" owners have been telling WIS this for about a decade, but since they haven't made any other changes during that time, of course they haven't corrected this. It's why so many owners will go nowhere near a League with random rookies.

Kukoc - not 100% at point guard. Not on DC at point guard. Is on DC at shooting guard where he IS 100%.
Lopez - not 100% at shooting guard.  Not on DC at shooting guard. Is on DC at point guard where his 100%.
Noah - not 100% at small forward.  Not on DC at small forward.  Is on DC at Center where he is 100%.
Webber - not on depth chart at center.  Only place on depth chart is backing up Lebron.  If Lebron is in the game, he shouldn't be.  Period.

This is in the 4th quarter of the finals.  Nobody had fouled out.  Nobody is injured.  Why does the sub logic decide to put in a bunch of players at positions they are a) not 100% at & b) not on the depth chart at when they easily could put them in at places they are a) 100% at and b) on the depth chart at?  Why?! 

It's stuff like this that has made several owners over the years think sabotage.

Oh, but wait:

3:31   103 - 118 Wilt Chamberlain makes a fadeaway from the baseline and he's fouled. Foul #4 on Joakim Noah, team foul #2.

So, now, Lebron goes out.  Does anything occur with a shift of players to their 100% position (or position on the depth chart)?  No.  Instead, they put in Boerwinkle, who is not even close to 100% at PF (nor on the depth chart there) at PF.  Why?

WHY?

If it ain't a conspiracy, wis ought to be ashamed of themselves.

(before you say it, garbage time subs happened, yes.  I should've changed the settings.  That's my bad, sure, but even garbage time subs should make some ******* sense)
11/6/2015 3:30 AM
Did you look at the other team though?  Wilt at PF then switches to C.  Dr. J at PG then switches to PF.  Joe Caldwell at C then switches to SG.  Wow!

those are defensive matchups.  His offensive team was normal.

got to love that 120 point 4th quarter

also 44 fouls / 78 ftas.

Guessing the foul when behind setting is jacked on his team... or just another ridiculous outlier?
