But, still a human shouldn't have to play these games, unless they can schedule them. So if they would've sent me a message or something like "by random selection, your team will be playing an 11th game, you can schedule any sim that you're not already playing and doesn't have a game already in the 11th spot." And if you didn't set the game by the end of exhibitions, they just give you a random team. All I'm saying is I (the human-coach who is paying you) should have as much control over the game and my potential successfulness or unsuccessfulness as possible.
There are random 11th games. It is part of the way the schedule is created. I am not aware of any forum report of it being changed. If you make sure to win the game, you will take a modest RPI hit. You will also get the benefit of more improvement from the extra minutes
I think that is just the way it is.
they cant let you pick which sim you want - you are thinking about the mechanism differently than it really is. its not like they randomly assign 11th games just because. what happens, is there is a situation where they can't get a certain team to 10 games - all the guys left with less than 10, they either can't play (because they are in the same conf, or already playing), or because they dont have an open spot that lines up. so, what WIS does is, creates an 11th slot game against a random opponent. you happened to be the random opponent. having you play any other team would really do no good.
i do agree they should limit this to sims, though.
