60 team schedule---basic concept

60 teams

2 leagues

3 divisions of 10 per league

18 games vs. the other 9 teams in your division...thats it

(if Thursdays were a day off for every week that'd be cool too)

Hi gmo. Would it be possible to cut this schedule down to around 80 games?

Can be a 81 game schedule

I was looking at this schedule in excel. It is interesting because after day 94 all teams play each other 9 times for 81 games. The only down side is that the home and away for each team is not equal. They range from 36 to 45 games.

So while each team plays each team the 9 games total the games home and away are not the same versus the division. To make it easier to just modify this schedule rather than create a brand new one would probably be to create 2 schedules and just have the second one the same as the first with the home and away teams reversed. This would give you the same number of home and away games against each opponent and have the same home and away against each division every two seasons.

I know this would not be ideal, but I can do the modify and add the all-star game. I really do not have the skills to create a new schedule, but with each team playing each team 9 times the total games per opponent works out good. Then you could load the opposite schedule each season you play to have the in league home and away games equal.

If you want someone else to look at this, that is fine with me, but let me know if you want me to create the 2 schedules, if that would work for you and I can do it. I am learning and this would be simple to do in excel for me. I can also change the start day of the week to Monday if you want. I noticed most schedules were set up like that in the schedule list files.

The modifications and creating of 2 schedules would only take me a few hours. I know that this is not a perfect solution, but it does work. Just let me know if you want me to work on this.

Just thinking that this can be exactly 80 games each team by removing 1 game randomly through the season - so teams that have 45 games at home or away can be reduced to only 44. season could still be the same length but each team could have a 2 game series instead of 3 games, once during the season.

Again, I am knew here, but have excel experience and I play another game and have changed the schedules many times over the last 8 or so years. I would like to try this to learn OOTP18.

This schedule can also be modified easy to have leagues of a smaller amount of teams. 10,20 upto the 60 teams and probably be made for leagues over 60 although that may be too many teams. I usually play replays and have only played leagues to 30 or so teams, biggest being 1884.

if anyone just needs a simple modification to a schedule that someone else made I can try to help. If too hard to modify i would just let you know and let someone better at schedules to fix. I hope the maker of the schedule does not mind.

i need to go, my boss is looking at me and probably wondering what I am working on.

Thanks Outlaw. I'd be willing to give your idea a shot. It doesn't sound like the home/away issue would be much of a concern. I'll be using this schedule to run a world league with each division representing a different region (Euro divison, Americas division, Asia division etc)

80 game schedule.

Here are the schedules. I made one set that included an allstar break and one set without. Please load the reverse schedule each season. I put s1 and s2 in the file name. I tested them and everything appears well.
I am pleased that each team plays the same number of games against each team in division, but was a little bit disappointed that the home and away totals for each team is different (they do equal the 80 though). This is why I feel it is important to load the schedules manually each year to reverse the games. you do not need to use all four schedules, 2 are for leagues with an allstar game and 2 are for a league without., probably safer to only download the schedule you will be using.

I finally figured out how to load and test in game, so I can verify they work and they look good on evaluation screen.
