I like/hate MSWL U1 because...
Posted by Allan Sellers on Monday, Aug. 8th, 2022 at 12:11 AM

...looking forward to the comments.

Does everyone need to type "I scored a goal this week...why did I not go up 5 places in the rankings"?   Yes...  

Does the code favor certain managers?

Readers Comments

The generosity of spirit shown to me as a new manager last year - especially from Vick

Roger Mendonça on Monday, Aug. 8th, 2022 at 8:45 PM
 

For the avoidance of doubt that was in the 'like' column, and was a reference to all the helpful advice provided.

Roger Mendonça on Monday, Aug. 8th, 2022 at 8:47 PM
 

I do also like the fact that when you have to clarify your ill thought through posts, you gain another 5k

Roger Mendonça on Monday, Aug. 8th, 2022 at 8:55 PM
 

This is becoming like a John Holden post Roger.  "Hey did I get 5k more for the clarification on the clarification"...  :-)  

On the positive side at least no puns were posted...

Allan Sellers on Monday, Aug. 8th, 2022 at 11:40 PM
 

I must admit I did think that as I was posting Al.

To avoid this post becoming a completely mercenary response aswell, let me add a few thoughts too.

Absolutely love that U1, and Olmec in general, feels as much like an online community as a game - and the pun twins (John and Phil) often make me laugh out loud.

As for the game itself, I like that all the data is in the public domain. I'm not one for getting into the detail myself but even a brief look at what others are doing is enough to get a feel for the strategic and tactical richness of the options available - and the brilliance of others.  On which note, I'm looking forward to seeing how Alon escapes relegation this year (and probably wins something) despite one of the worst T-11s in the league.

Nothing I've come to hate so far.

Roger Mendonça on Tuesday, Aug. 9th, 2022 at 7:10 AM
 

It's always interesting, promotion from division 3 followed by relegation from division 2 the season after. 
 

That's this season. 

Andy Shaw on Tuesday, Aug. 9th, 2022 at 10:05 AM
 

1. You get 5k a post.

John Holden on Wednesday, Aug. 10th, 2022 at 7:59 PM
 

2. Vale survived relegation last year. That's a start.

John Holden on Wednesday, Aug. 10th, 2022 at 7:59 PM
 

3. None of the teams in the league are nicknamed Hatters, and hat talk has been few and far between.

John Holden on Wednesday, Aug. 10th, 2022 at 8:00 PM
 

To clarify #3, TMVL has a lot of hat-related banter. MSWL-1 only has knee-related banter, and even then that banter is structurally weak, so it'll probably die out in a bit.

John Holden on Wednesday, Aug. 10th, 2022 at 8:01 PM
 

Is the knee or banter that is structurally weak ?

James White on Thursday, Aug. 11th, 2022 at 6:50 PM
 

Or both ?

James White on Thursday, Aug. 11th, 2022 at 6:51 PM
 

apologies just jumping on the 5K gravy train.


Hates : Al being nice to people , Completely unfair defeats ,  Youth cup predictability (see post in just one thing)

Loves : Al's "friendly" banter, Completely unfair victories , Al calling out managers,  Manger interaction/comments , Al stoking the flames , Setup /Order interface , Al picking on people , that's enough for now, well apart from Al subtlety highlighting glaring weaknesses in some managers rosters.

James White on Thursday, Aug. 11th, 2022 at 7:06 PM
 

Loves. Biding in the auction. Even better than the games.

Hates. Losing in the auction. Even more than losing the games.

Andy Shaw on Thursday, Aug. 11th, 2022 at 9:51 PM
 

Loves - Playing not just against my family but also against people who have become virtual friends. 
 

hates - loosing lol

Graham Wilkes on Friday, Aug. 12th, 2022 at 7:51 PM
 

Ian.

Phil McIntosh on Saturday, Aug. 13th, 2022 at 3:58 AM
 

Loves the league... the game... the community and virtual friendships... the elusive chase for trophies and a winning formula. 

Hates... that Olmec has it out for me.

Rob Peterson on Saturday, Aug. 13th, 2022 at 2:35 PM
 

Is this a suggested improvements thread? If so:

It would be good to get an email if my team has a trade offer made, accepted or rejected.

It might also be good to get emails when someone comments on one of my matches. Maybe that's down to personal preference and might get a bit much, not sure? So perhaps for that just an easier way to see if there's been a comment on the site?

Ian Lindsay on Tuesday, Aug. 16th, 2022 at 6:43 PM
 

James: I will try not to be so nice and call out managers more and instigating!  😎

I-Man: This may just be me, but I feel like getting another email will just make me want to delete it.

What about a page to show the latest sections of the site where people have commented on your team or something like that?

I've found email tough to "ensure" I get it to you all and has a lot of overhead when automated with all the elements out there to block email.  It has mostly become a frustration to do.  But we could do something where I have a section like the dashboard that shows "3 new comments" or something where you can click a page and see what kind and generous comments I've made about PNE...

Allan Sellers on Wednesday, Aug. 17th, 2022 at 12:45 AM
 

I am too old for this !!😀

Simon Compton on Wednesday, Aug. 17th, 2022 at 7:38 AM
 

If you write more lines on this post talking about how I hate United because Allan always fixes the results against me, do we get paid more I wonder😉, I love seeing Ian crying and I love seeing tranmere always throw round one of the Fa cup🤔

Simon Compton on Wednesday, Aug. 17th, 2022 at 7:40 AM
 

The simple answer no you don't, 5k for this response and 5k for long winded drivel 🤔

Simon Compton on Wednesday, Aug. 17th, 2022 at 7:41 AM
 

Great to see Compo taking a break from his MONTH-long holiday to share some insights with us normal people...   

😎🤔😇

Allan Sellers on Wednesday, Aug. 17th, 2022 at 11:12 PM
 

Good points on the emails. Yes, just an easy way to see at a glance where there have been developments, so maybe a section where we can see that.

It feels like especially with match comments there's the initial ones in the few hours after the games and then people stop checking back. Perhaps that's just down to the quality of the comments, I mean, there's only so many times we can see "Brentford were 5 goal underdogs, but somehow we won today" or "Lewes are rebuilding, today we got lucky"

Ian Lindsay on Thursday, Aug. 18th, 2022 at 11:33 AM
 

Or the other perennial favourite "never bet against Kevin Martin on a Saturday"

Ian Lindsay on Thursday, Aug. 18th, 2022 at 11:34 AM
 

You have got to love MSWL1 every time you win a  game againt Lewes. It really makes my saturday night couple with a caprese pizza from carrefour and washed down with a bottle of cava!

Vick Hall on Friday, Aug. 19th, 2022 at 9:55 PM
 

That's not an easy thing to do when Dave has saved his GPPs for your team.

That's another idea for an improvement. A leader board of "GPP victims" overall, as well as something to show who certain individuals save their GPPs for?

Ian Lindsay on Saturday, Aug. 20th, 2022 at 12:59 PM
 

I'm just here for the 5k

Graham Wilkes on Saturday, Aug. 27th, 2022 at 3:50 PM
 

Yes we took July off in exchange 😂, Disney holiday all as adults awesome 😎 

Simon Compton on Monday, Aug. 29th, 2022 at 4:56 PM
 

That's comment was for free 🤣

Simon Compton on Monday, Aug. 29th, 2022 at 4:57 PM
 

"... Nothing I've come to hate so far...."

 

Two sessions in and three players sent off on zero hardness, I would like to change my answer above....

Roger Mendonça on Saturday, Sep. 3rd, 2022 at 7:35 PM
 

Roger: welcome to Olmec!  

😎 😇

Allan Sellers on Saturday, Sep. 3rd, 2022 at 11:56 PM
 

Does anyone particularly like Roger?

Phil McIntosh on Saturday, Sep. 17th, 2022 at 4:18 AM
 

You sound just like my wife Phil!

Roger Mendonça on Saturday, Sep. 17th, 2022 at 10:58 AM
 

This made me laugh...  😎
