Appleseed I see what you trying to do in your heads in the right place, the problem can and most likely will occur with your clear the bench method when a player like beck can give you 3-4 rec minutes, once they surpass those rec minutes the bricks come. in all my teams the lowest  3pt%  of my never miss squad are those with low rec minutes. You've probably already noticed if you play beck or strickland for 6 minutes they bricked some 3pt's. my handful of bricks with Yao came with a Gervin foul out or some other reason to lower the usage or Yao played 33 + minutes. Once in a blue moon he throws up a brick I cant explain. with my teams ill play the hell out of a non 3pt shooter but i never let a 3pt shooter go over rec, if anything i play them a few minutes less to prevent over using them. I have no doubt that the right combo to success is out there just find which piece goes where. Good luck bro

fyi:  recommended minutes is useless.  Overusage (ie taking too many shots) is the problem with the clean-up squad idea.

 oh of course i dont worry about reasoning, whether it's fatigue or too much usage, all i know is it happens everytime they go past their rec mark. and thats good enough for me to strategize around it

  • Adjusted 3pt% in the engine for guys with very low attempts and high percentage
  • Reduced chances of a making the shot on a 3pt shooting foul.
  • Adjusted shot distribution when in 3pt offense to give a small chance to shoot for guys without any 3pt attempts. Would only be noticeable if a team has 4 guys with no 3pt attempts and one guy with just a few.

Now if they would just make all the other additional simple changes that would make the game more fun...

Well, if a player plays more minutes than he did IRL/82 in a game, the likelihood that he takes too many shots increases.  You'll find that lower usage scrubs end up doing this less often than the higher usage ones.

I noticed this had taken affect in my box scores...8-10 in game 1...then like 2-11 in game 5 or whatever...looking back, this really wasn't that big of a problem, I actually didn't mind it until I understood the entire breadth of the only benefit in the last 6 mins of the game if you're down.

Oh sure, the issue I try to exploit, 3 point shooting, they actually fix. I'm not sure if I'm more ticked off or shocked that they actually fixed something. Are they actually starting to pay attention?
