General Offseason Chat

We’re into the SuperCoach off-season now!

Congrats to all the winners, whether it’s H2H, Draft or the Overall race. Huge season!

Thank you all for being part of the SC Talk Community this crazy old year that was 2020! Thanks to all the contributors, podcasters, commenters and players who make the site what it is.

We’ll be back next season with all the usual gear. In the meantime, keep your eye out for some big announcements early in 2021, as well as some chat pages opening up on the Big Bash and SuperCoach Racing (opening this Saturday).

Now, onto the real rugby league where we don’t have to count every tackle, refresh the app every minute and worry about our dodgy captain choices!

I must say that SC has been really disappointing this year. IMO the quality and integrity of the game has been in steady decline for the past few years. I play a variety of sports related fantasy games but this product is so badly run that it is laughable. The inconsistency of the scoring of stats and the really haphazard timing of updates not only is extremely frustrating but it creates the very real impression of manipulation and deceit. Far from being a professionally run competition it comes across as being “managed” by a bunch of back-yard operators. I realise… Read more »

100% I’d switch if ever there was a viable alternative. I’m not sure how they can stop people having multiple teams. I’m sure most of us would pay 5 bucks to enter. Maybe that would stop the frauds having multiple teams. Something needs to be done about it but no doubt it won’t.

That’s the issue. NRLFantasy is rubbish. I’ve tried playing it, twice, but each time I just end up frustrated with the horrible GUI. I do like that prices change after the first week. That rewards people who jump on players early. And don’t they have 2 trades every week? As for Dream Team. It’s the boring edition of SC. It’s more simplistic, but if you get upset about scoring oddities in SC then you’d have a fit in DT. Sometimes it feels like they don’t even bother to score certain players! At least with DT though there are very few… Read more »

Yes! Simplify it and that includes removing the TC. The last pass should be given the TA every time

Yeah and that could also be said for RLNRL too. In a sad way, the poor quality and lack of integrity in the SC product mirrors that of the NRL product. Both struggle to hit professional standards or transcend entertainment mediums.

I play other fantasy games and each year their participation numbers grow but SC participation numbers remain stagnant. Why?

As for my own little team performance, i’m unsure whether to mark Jurbo and Murray as successes or failures. Neither had the star appeal of an Angus, Matto or Jazz but both ended up outscoring them in total points.

Swapping SJ for Munster rather than Brimson was my biggest error. Well that and buying back Turbo but what’s SC without a Turbo charge!

Its fine to say to get rid of all these players but who are you going to get that are actually better. Lots of sides are trying to recruit new players to thier team but thier really isnt much on the market

Almost all of their issues are fixable, where there’s no need for a complete roster overhaul, except for the most glaring problem of all – Pearce.

The Knights won’t do anything of note as long as he’s a key figure in the team.

Pearce and the back row would be my priorities .

Anyone know what top 1000 overall get as a prize? Also how is it redeemed? Cheers.

They are doing key rings for top 1000 again this year. They didn’t do them last year. If it’s the same as 2018 you’ll get an email to confirm your delivery address and will send it in the post.

SC really help during some tough times this covid effect year and I am sure, for many of us, like myself who puts in many hours of research to try and give my team an edge, which I am confident everyone on here pretty much does the same in terms of research. To be reading that this years winner had multiple teams and suggestions past winners have done the same, is honestly hugely disappointing. I really hope during the offseason the the people running SC can come up with a solution where it is a one team only policy per… Read more »

To reverse an old saying – Where there is money there is muck. Paying for the game is the worst idea . It would have to be around $100 to even put a dent in the muliple teams strategy.This forum and sharing of ideas are our best hopes to have a winning team.
I have loved your input this year but to win you need to be better and luckier.
Underdogs have their day like all other dogs.. It may even happen to Canterbury.
