    • my media spot:   TLDR: head coach role franchise player designation veteran mentors  
    • Sharing some ideas for the SBA in response to @Jogn's call for feedback. Since I'm new to the league, I hope that my outsider's perspective can help shed certain aspects of the league in a new light. All ideas are rough and designed for brainstorming purposes!      HEAD COACH   I wonder if there could be a way for us to add more customization and specialization to the role of Head Coaches. I like the idea of giving head coaches a speciality as it could potentially create an extra layer to team identity, recruiting, and sim strategies.    Imagine a selection of specialities such as:   Youth Development: Young players (years 1 and 2 in NCAA and SBA) get a TPE training boost. Offensive Mastermind: All players get a small boost to offensive skills. Defensive Mastermind: All players get a small boost to defensive skills.  Inside Specialty: All players get a boost to inside scoring. 3 Point Specialty: All players get a boost to 3 point shot. Passing Specialty: All players get a boost to passing. Career Extender: Veteran players get a TPE boost.    This idea could give ADs and GMs an extra tool to customize their team.   For example, a team in rebuilding mode might be more keen to hire a "Youth Development" coach, which would make their rookies or freshmen more competitive. This could be a powerful tool for NCAA recruitment or help rebuilding teams turn around faster. Hiring an "Offensive or Defensive Mastermind" coach could help build a veteran team identity and make a team's strengths even stronger. Players in free agency could be drawn to play for a team that adopt a specific specialty like "Inside" "Passing" or "3 Pointer."      FRANCHISE PLAYER   I like the idea of allowing GMs to be able to designate a Franchise Player for their teams.   Requirements for Franchise Player would be similar to how it is NBA: a minimum number of years on the team, plus accolades like 2x All SBA Teams or MVP awards.   Franchise Players could receive an Annual TPE Bonus.   This could give star players an interesting choice in free agency as they might be more motivated to stay with the team who drafted them and gave them a Franchise Player label.   The Franchise Player label could also promote friendly competition and rivalry between players. New drama could arise between teammates who both aspire to become a Franchise Player. We could also possibly see rivalries between Franchise Players similar to the Larry Bird vs Magic Johnson or LBJ vs Curry battles.      VETERAN MENTORS   It might be cool to give more an extra role to Veteran Players in Regression.   A team could designate a Veteran Player to become a mentor to a player on a Rookie Contract. The Veteran Player could create a specific workout for the younger player (like select a category such as Inside Scoring or Blocking to earn points in.) The real bonus would be a new layer of camaraderie between new SBA players and the OGs. A Veteran might be motivated to help a young player succeed and give character build advice. Helping another player succeed could be very engaging for a player in the regression years.    This could also motivation GMs to build balanced teams with a mix of veteran and young players.    
    • Exactly, we feel like we can retain more new members this way by trying to be ahead of the curve of the recruitment however @Legend is doing a better job than we are
    • True. I love being on a team where people want to stay for 4 years but it also means I haven't started a game in 2 years
    • I would say the ability to start 4 years in the NCAA and that we would rather have users join the website and immediately start versus potentially getting 15 minutes of playing time   We’ve also seen a massive decrease in one and dones thus concentrating a lot of talent in the NCAA
