Like many of you I was recently put onto this league and really want to try it out. I was in a dynasty league for many years that got boring because there was a couple of us that dominated the league year in and year out and everyone else was always rebuilding. Now I’m looking for a different a new challenge.
Just want to mention that it may be difficult to increase manager slots after the year one draft due to the dynasty-like nature of ottoneu. If your goal is 12 managers, I think it’d be easier to start there than increase later. Does anyone have any experience doing expansion drafts for increasing managers after year one?
That’s something I didn’t think about. Would have to come up with some good rules for expansion. I think the rosters and everything would be doable with some work from the commish. Wonder if this place will even let you renew a league and increase managers or if you have to create a new league completely. Maybe a good idea for a feature to be suggested.
Leagues have increased their sizes before in the offseason. It may require hitting me up at firstname.lastname@example.org, but my recommendation would be to really aim for starting with the number of teams you want in the league rather than adding more later.
A few people have tried doing expansion drafts:
Ultimately expansions are really rare (for a number of good reasons) so I’d try my best to avoid planning to have an expansion draft in year 2 before even starting.
