Bird the toughest league?

To me it looks like Bird has gotten even stronger this season and Kareem has thinned out more (with the retirement of FU and Rage. Aswell as BB, TSS & Studmuffin gym ratting). I think its safe to say Bird > Kareem atm.

Re: Bird the toughest league?

maybe, really hard to tell.  To make things more exciting the top 15 teams from Kareem and Bird at the end of the season should all go to either Kareem or Bird

Re: Bird the toughest league?

True, i misread what u said. I thought u said they should swap leagues my bad. But i like ur idea, you could even just make it the top 8 or 10 from bird go to Kareem

Re: Bird the toughest league?

Won't happen lol

Not to mention a handful of them teams will probably rat the next season.  I'd say at this point, each league is fairly even, but of course will vary from season to season.  As time goes on, the depth of College and down for Bird will catch up to Kareem, because as of right now, that's the only difference.

Top of Pro is even, IMO.

Re: Bird the toughest league?

why because some teams want easier competition **cough**Always Ballin**cough** wink

Everyone should man up and join in the one division, let some PG team win the other comp!

Bird is tougher. More depth.

Re: Bird the toughest league?

Does more depth mean it is tougher??  Or does it mean it is tougher if the top teams are much better??

Anyway lets settle it by having everyone in one league!!

Re: Bird the toughest league?

It's tougher because it's harder to get a higher ranking, while the same team in Kareem would get a higher ranking - As there is less depth in Kareem.

Re: Bird the toughest league?

Fair enough.  I would think that the 'toughness' would be how hard it is to win a championship.

Would you consider having all top teams join in the one league?

Re: Bird the toughest league?

Yes, seeing as that would create a decent league with about 40 capable, well-managed teams.

Edit: Plus a Pro A where every single team is a threat to the championship (Kareem last season, only like 3-5 (maybe 6, I forget the teams) were real, real threats to the championship)

Re: Bird the toughest league?

Re: Bird the toughest league?

It's been "deeper" for at least 2 seasons now. A team I know of went from college D to Pro B in one half-assed gym rat season in season 12.

And, in agreeing with those before me, the more competitive teams there are (i.e. depth), the tougher it is to win a championship.

Are The Tanks the best team on CR? It's possible. Was their path to last season's championship easier? IMO, yes.

I know for a fact sim points between Bird and Kareem are very similar at the top... only strategy can separate Kareem/Bird's elite.


Season 8 - RotLW championship, WWWC runners-up
Season 10 - SHIT runners-up
Season 11 - Just Blaze championship, Always Ballin championship
Season 13 - Tanks championship

Re: Bird the toughest league?

I think the leagues are fairly even at this point.  Kareem probably has a little stronger top 5-10 teams, Bird has a little more depth throughout the Pro ranks.  Even the top 5 or so Jordan league teams would probably be borderline or better Pro A teams in either league at this point.

I don't think there are enough quality teams to warrant having two leagues anymore.  Teams with filler players are making the playoffs and teams gym ratting aren't ever dropping out of Pro.

Exactly tmoney, no need for two leagues.  The top teams end up playing each other so much it gets a bit mundane after a while, hence why not get all the top teams from both leagues to join in the same comp for next season

Re: Bird the toughest league?

I miss the old days with just one league. Every team in Bird should just join Kareem next season since it's called 'league 1'. That way we can have a competitive season again where being in Pro A (or even in Pro for that matter) meant something.

Re: Bird the toughest league?

I always looked it at like this.

Kareem equals trash talking.

Bird equals fun and enjoyable.

Re: Bird the toughest league?

Surely Kareem is deeper. RKCH finishes 12th in Bird standings last season and we had someone AWOL all season...

Re: Bird the toughest league?

Kareem literally only had 16-17 capable teams last season. Like, after that...there were just teams that had no idea what was going on. They would be in College D in the good ole days tongue

Bird had about 20-24 of these teams, and after that there were still some credible outfits.
