2059 - Fan Interest Shifts

Post by RonCo » Tue Apr 16, 2024 1:48 pm

There's been considerable conversation about Fan Interest changes in v25. Lot's of folks feel a bunch, and that made for...annoyance. So what's real? How much did people fall? What's the scoop?

Maybe there are a few other things, I think the answer is that the game has now (fnally!) nerfed the impact of popular players down to a much better level. In my opinion, this is good for the game but will hurt teams who's current FI is highly leverages to these players with bloated popularity. Teams like mine. (http://montybrewster.net/forums/viewtop ... 60&t=49235)

An Aside: For those who haven't looked at the game's setup process, Fan Interest is built on two factors: (1) The core level of Fan Interest, and (2) an adjustment that goes up and down over time to reflect short-term signings and leavings. As an example, my Bikini team finished with a FI of 100 (which makes no sense), but converts in at 55. I admit I don't know what the numbers really are, this makes me guess that my base FI is maybe 50-52 and my adjustment is a few points. I can dig this.

Check out the teams that faded. I'm guessing they have more popular players in their organization. At least I'm aware that some of those GMs seem to value popularity.

If I'm right, that means crappy teams (and good ones, for that matter) will be limited in their ability to artificially pump up fan interest by doing what Bikini did last year (our big drop is a metric of how poor that system was...feel free to call it gaming the system if you want).

Anyway, here are the data in both graph and table forms:

I should note that I think BIK's Fan Interest was 44 or 42 when I took over the team.

Definitely not thrilled about this. Had fan interest over 100 since 2052. Hope it doesn't mess with my money.

Probably a good thing, but the most important thing is Nashville is top dog! Who cares about division titles or Monty titles? All about FI!!

I'm not sure how the change will impact revenue creation, though I have to think it will cut things a bit. I'm making spending plans on the idea that I'll miss my v24 revenue projections by a considerable margin. If it doesn't work out that way, I'll be happy. :)

Not super happy because of the significance of the change. I agree in theory that the fan interest bump from popular players was a bit too high but it seems a bit drastic and is now yet ANOTHER thing to think about with this new version.

Look at that, a whole 2-point boost for Rockville! I'll be more concerned about fan interest when we give the fans more worth their interest. Getting there...

I note the v25 distribution, while not exactly normal, is a lot more normal than v24.

No idea if that's good or not, but it is whatever it is.

It is a sign that Louisville is one of the few teams that didn't change. Of what I have no idea.
