The old system rewarded losing to good teams far more than this one does. This one doesn't care about good losses to a point, but if you have too many of those on your record you better have some good wins to go along with it. It's not a perfect system, but the current projection report is by far the best system this site has ever had.
I agree, this one is better.
And I was one of those who gamed the system (tough schedule and mostly road games). Back then, you could have a pretty bad team, but if you played road games and vs the very top teams, you could be 8-18 and have a 70 RPI or so. When in actuallity you should be at 200 RPI or so.
