But yea even I'll admit it's a smallish minority of teams. You're right about the trend for sure.

I find the old page much better and click back to it every time. I don't think this is just because I'm stuck in my ways, but who knows Smile

Yea there is! Check out leagues! I know it's not many of the teams paying Black Box. I know not everyone cares. But that's why I said "for some people". Leagues have a lot of very fluffed up teams, and you do run into some in C (although most are generic in C).

It's not for everyone but a good amount of people really like the personality aspect of FUMBBL team building and really do care about it.


You don't even have to "join" a league/tournament to play in the [L]eague division. You can just use Gamefinder. A Box would be nice.

You can even do it the Old Way Mr. Green

Someone has even started playing in Ranked. Wink

I really really dislike a few things about the new page, but there are some excellent upsides.

To me, the following things are sources of frustration:
1) Lack of logo on the default page. I would be fine with a 360x450 limit, and a limit on the bio to also keep it to 450 pixels would be fine. This is a biggie to me.
2) Lack of cumulative and vs stats.
3) New team stats page is cool but it would be even cooler if it included a box like that of coach stats.

The following things really tickle me:
1) The player purchase interface.
2) The ability to renumber players.
3) The ability to see the icon for a player on the page.
4) Removing player stats from the main roster page (they're still on the Yearbook).
5) Per-game stats for TD and Cas, less math for the reader.

On the balance, I like it, but it definitely comes with an asterisk.

Lots of stuff on the new page, but not a very important one: win %.

Agree with pretty much everything JR said.

Cumulative td and cas stats (for and against) and a link to the last match are what I am missing. Not too bad though and the new features outweigh these issues for me.

Yeah the link to the last match is big for updating bios (team and player) and keeping track of stats the site doesn't.

A gold dropping feature would be nice to have on a team page. My bash teams tend to hoard more than 300K and I have to manually hire & fire staff to set the Treasury exactly at 290K.
If possible, it would be nice to be able to set it at 295K.

The old team page will be removed at some point. I can't maintain two team pages at the same time indefinitely.
The major reason the new page is there is because the old page is riddles with "technical debt" and is incredibly hard to work with.
Custom bios and logos aren't disappearing though.
It is, however, being changed so there's a 128 pixel band that is shown by default.
So it takes a little bit of bbcode to make it look pretty:
Image
[table=automargin width=100%][tr]\
[td=pad0 width=128px][img]/i/486193[/img][/td]\
[td]Image on left, bio on right[/td]\
[/tr][/table]

[table=automargin width=100%][tr]\
[td]Image on right, bio on left[/td]\
[td=pad0 width=128px][img]/i/486193[/img][/td]\
[/tr][/table]


[table=automargin width=100%][tr]\
[td]Text on both sides[/td]\
[td=pad0 width=128px][img]/i/486193[/img][/td]\
[td]Text on both sides[/td]\
[/tr][/table]
Image
A 950x128 pixel banner image would be one way to design it as well

Totally agree with the original post. The new page lacks character.

and, I too miss the 'total games' stat - but thats not as important as seeing the team bio/logo.

Do I understand properly that part of the goal (or most of it) of the new team page is to limit loading times of team bios?

Some teams have monster sized bios, and they take a long time to load. I get that.


Nah. The new page is way slower.
