Such a graph with conclusive background data would be a PERFECT indication whether inducements are too good or bad in general. That would be a great analysis. Unfortunately the volatility (and possibly the sample size) is not good enough to draw such conclusion.


We certainly can do that, but we need more matches where the phenomenon is present = more matches with wider TV difference. For Science! Wink

My conclusions:
1) Probability of losing an upwards match does not seem to rise very much even over "large" TV differences.
2) There are not very many matches with big TV disparity in the box with the current scheduler.

These conclusions can change if we get new information. Likely that new information would require more data, so somewhere people would have to play lot of matches with wide TV difference and record the results.

The problem with that graph is it takes in to account all races. E.g. khemri are fine playing against same tv teams, but when they start playing against far higher tv teams they stand pretty much zero chance of winning assuming coaches are of a similar standard.


Thats not exactly true. Khemries are ok playing vs ~200TV up, because they benefit from 2x babes and x1 bribe. Defend first, kill everything you can, foul a lot. Press the ball, but do not expose key players for it. With regen and KOs back, good chance to have numbers advantage in second half.

Playing bigger TV diff is hard, because you do not benefit from wizard much, and Igor just sucks.

Yep agree 200 tv is sometimes ok depends if you play against agile blodged teams mind as even 200 tv up and you're screwed. As you say though higher tv and its a nightmare.

Dunno how easy it would be but a graph for each race would be very interesting.

I think the sweet spot is the middle TV. Does not matter if teams are minmaxed or not, I find middle TV to be best and most fun for all rosters.

Shoulnd't it be possible to, make a fling team @ 1000k, play 15 games, then drop RR and players so you're around 600-700k in order to get lots of inducements?

Could be interesting to test...

You won't get any games, the scheduler won't match you with any new teams.

Also, it's yet another attempt to game the system and pick on new teams.

A better idea is to play 30+ games and hey presto, inducements.
