Anyone want to beta test new draft scouting features?
Usually I'm the only one to test things before features go live, but let's try something different...
I'm working on adding draft scouting to the game. Basically, the game pre-generate 3 years of draft classes ahead of time so you can get more of an idea about what a high draft pick in a certain season might get you. You can view future draft classes at any time, but the further into the future, the more uncertain the ratings.
Go to beta.basketball-gm.com to try it (just click Players > Draft once you're inside a league). And keep in mind the following about the beta site:
- You can't move leagues between the normal site (play.basketball-gm.com) and the beta site. So treat everything on the beta site as a test.
- Things are more likely to be buggy on the beta site. So treat everything on the beta site as a test.
- Your leagues on the beta site could stop working at any time. On the normal site, I always write upgrade code so that (ideally) no old leagues break. Might not work that way on the beta site. So treat everything on the beta site as a test.
But please do try it out and give me feedback on the draft scouting (comment here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or comment on Reddit). I already have a couple ideas I want to do in the future (such as allowing players to move between draft classes, letting you promise to draft someone to encourage them to enter the draft earlier).
