Not much else to say other than I?m really wondering if people play SD only if the reward is worth it or if the bonus is easy to achieve? This week will be telling since bonus is easy and prize is same as last tourney.
Well, I personally think Impact is a waste of stamina beyond first win events. When the bonus is significantly higher than current OVR's and the base OVR without boost is closer to normal (e.g. 89-->84, 90-->85 etc) then I think it will be worthwhile. As it is, what am I going to do with an 81 once the boost is finished (and yes, I know about completing the sets for an 87 but still...).Not much else to say other than I?m really wondering if people play SD only if the reward is worth it or if the bonus is easy to achieve?

Given the prize pool apparently remains the same, programs like impact and flashback are heavy stamina drainers and there will be Harvest wanting stamina as well, I doubt there will be more people in legend compared to this last week.
My expectation is that we will see a rise in SD this week to the tune of the Top 1000 all being Legend tier.
How often do u guys limit the ai to zero.. i dont think i have had one in like forever.. at the least they will get the rebound putback or the fadeaway..
Anyone else not feeling the ovr advantage in recent sd?
Ill say yes.. definitely.. shots just didnt go in agst the lower ovrs.. and they even seemed to have the rebounding advantage.Anyone else not feeling the ovr advantage in recent sd?
I'll say no. In the low tiers I had an easy time against all low ovr except one - the 82 ovr i mentioned above (+9 vs +10)
and in the Halloween week i had a bad time against higher ovr.
Differences still seem less significant than they were in s2, and the presented % also point that way.
Brian mentioned the other day that his next assignment after Harvest is to work on Showdown. He will be looking at he end of season reward system, the fan loss/gain system and the requirements for reaching Legend. It was quite an interesting conversation actually. He has to come up with proposals involving a lot of math and not just intuition.

@edll at lower tiers u have to keep in mind player skill to in matchups.. mqybe thats why u had an easier time.. which i do to of i start sd late
Thats why i found the Halloween geind easier as there were so many players who were less skilled (who now had the bonus) increasing the chance of me getting victories..whereas this week smaller pool of more skilled grinders. Hence the lower ovr skilled players , tougher to beat with the game nerfing
I wonder....when I play low OVR in a low TIER, I usually win easily. But when I'm in a higher TIER and play a lower OVR, I struggle to make plays. Hadn't put 2 & 2 together but that's interesting to note. Because it makes their system seem even more screwy than I thought it was.
