fonziGG 974 Posted March 12, 2022 Share Posted March 12, 2022 Gotcha on the title. This is becoming a norm now, where I just ramble on a saturday afternoon before the big day. Well, here it is. Something had to give with the meta, and I absolutely am in favour of these new hybrid attributes. The only thing is, now we all have to learn what works as a build and what doesn't. Which, in my person opinion, will be a fun thing to do. Will there eventually be a new meta? Absolutely. I don't doubt for a minute with nerds on the internet and a simulation league that we won't have a meta. The thing is, meta's won't hurt us as harshly as the 90 SC 40 PA world, which will be nice. I do, whole heartedly, believe we will have a meta again. What will it look like? No idea. But we were trending towards it all the years leading up to. Time to talk a little bit about my time in Vancouver. Now, I was running my team with Sixers until he decided to step down. So what did I naturally do? Well, I hired Nyko. Why? No clue. Obvious mistake for the league. We got to talking, he was testing a bit and we decided to buy into this 90 SC 40 PA world. Lets do this, I remember saying. Lets break the VHL. Eventually, I stepped down due to IRL reasoning but we got to see this day. I'm also not going to take claim for Vancouvers success. I think we can say, I played a part in it, but that's about it. Sorry VHL, blame Nyko obviously! You know what's really nice about these hybrid attributes is that we might see diversity in our players. We needed some parity, we needed variety, and I believe this gives that to us. We're going to have more range in our players which is something we needed. It's what the pro's have as well. Players that a great in different ways, not just in 1 specific way. This gives GM's, AGM's and commissioners more thoughts when it comes to helping the new players, which IMO is great. Getting our minds moving will be good for them and us old VHL bum heads. I'm very excited about these changes. It's sad in a way that we lost our privileges to the clients attributes since I never got to prove that LD was a valuable attribute. That's honestly the most disappointing part. I wish I could have. I probably should have. My hypothesis was that 50-55 LD made your player a top tier player. Reason being was that you could hype your team up. Apparently, LD meant that your player could bring your teams morale up (seriously) during a game, meaning if a goal was scored, you're more likely to get your team to perform better. I honestly think that the meta builds with a little bit of leadership would have been over powered as fuck and I'm glad we never got to see it but at the same time, as an avid user, I'd have loved to proven this hypothesis. Alas, maybe I'll prove it in test sims one day, I'm not trying to give away all the companies secrets, at least! Shindigs 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
