a few schedules needed
Hello gmo
How are you? I am time after time simply amazed that you are able to create schedules as if it were as simple as figuring out what is 2 times 2. Anyway... I am in midst of a league, and am planning its expansion and contraction beforehand. I am looking for a few schedules. All are 162 games, all have no interleague, all are balanced. All begin the season on the 1st Monday of April and end on the 1st Sunday of October. All start at the same time, 7 pm (so I can play out a game and watch the scores of other games at the same time) 1) League 1  1 division, 6 teams; League 2  1 division, 4 teams. 2) League 1  1 division, 6 teams; League 2  1 division, 6 teams. 3) League 1  2 divisions, 5 teams in each division; League 2  1 division, 6 teams. 4) League 1  2 divisions, 5 teams in each division; League 2  2 divisions, 4 teams in each division. 5) League 1  2 divisions, 6 teams in each division; League 2  2 divisions, 5 teams in each division. 6) <most likely this is on the main page> League 1 & 2: 2 divisions, 6 teams each. Thank you in advance.

Request (maybe):
2 leagues...in each league there are 2 divisions...in each division there are 5 teams. Think you can do up noninterleague 144 game schedule for something like this? I'd like to actually have it unbalanced, but unsure of how that would work. Balanced is nice, 16 games against each other team in the league. But 16 is an even number, making the series hard to do as it is (5 three game series and 1 four game series isn't all that bad). Splitting it up would be 22/10 (that's 22 games vs teams in division, and 10 games vs teams in other division). Is that possible, or would that make things difficult?

Breaking the matchups down is not too difficult if you are willing to allow for 1game differences in the total matchups (not needed above) and 1 to 3game differences in the home/away numbers (like shown above). Is that okay? I could try crunching some other numbers if you wanted more (perhaps up to ~28/6) or less (closer to 16/16) unbalanced or if you wanted to try for something with less home/away split differences. The latter can often be obtained by piling in 2game series, something that may be undesirable, like breaking down 10 total games into 2&3H/2&3H as opposed to 4H/3&3A or vice versa. And of course perfect symmetry can only come from all even numbers, something that may not even be possible in many cases.

I took the even splits for granted.
What about 26/10? 104+40=144. That way the series can be 6 3 game series and 2 four game series in division, and 2 3 game series and a 4 game series out of division? Also, the home/aways can be fairly even. Well, except for 4 games. If we break that down to 2 2 game series, I could live with that. I'm more looking for symmetry, but on the unbalanced side of things. 26 games in division seems like a lot, but if the numbers work out better than I'm all for that. I hate even numbers, but it seems to work out nicest this way.

You seem to want unbalanced, though that 26/8 is pretty far that way. The 21/12 above retains the evenness in the total matchups, but has the small differences in the H/A totals. In between there is something like 2324/910, but the H/A splits would not be completely even, plus the intra or interdivision matchups would have to vary by 1 game.

It's getting too late. I can't add or multiply. That math degree is looking awfully silly right about now.
Yeah, it's definitely way too unbalanced. I was trying to find something in between, but the math doesn't work out (well it could and I'm just being crazy tonight). The 21/12 will have to do, though I don't like the uneven home/away. If anything, I would prefer the extra game to be a home game. 11H/10A. Really the only way to accomplish that would be to have 2 home series of 4 games apiece and one of 3 games, and then the 2 away series of 3 games and one of 4 games. The 12 is easily done. Might as well do it that way. That would be a total of 74 home and 70 away, correct? I can live with that. That's with avoiding 2 game series, which is what I would prefer. The 21/12 is the best way to do it, whether I like it or not. That would be great gmo.

For what it's worth, here are some of the schedule formats used in the minor leagues over the years for a ten team league with two 5team divisions. The first number indicates the number of games against divisional opponents and the second number is the number of games against interdivisional opponents.
2214 = 158 games 1816 = 152 games 268 = 144 games 26/1614 = 144 games* 1616 = 144 games 24/1614 = 142 games** 1814 = 142 games 2112/8 = 140 games*** 2012 = 140 games * This format saw one divisional opponent played 26 times and the other three played 16 times. Because of the odd number of teams in each division, one club played the 26 games against its opposite in the other division, and played all the clubs inside its own division 16 times. ** Similar to the above, except the higher number of games against against one opponent was 24 rather than 26. *** One club in the other division was played 8 times while the other four were played 12 times.

Hello gmo
Thank goodness the site is up, right? All of us OOTP fans were worried for a while. Anyway...am looking for a few more schedules. The schedule that I asked for  1 league with 2 divisions, 1 league with 1 division  didn't work out so well. That year had to be cancelled (and the whole league of 15 years deleted) because I didn't know how to program a world series at the end of the 1 league's semifinals. But anyway....here are the requests: 1) League 1  1 division, 4 teams; league 2  1 division, 6 teams. 2) Both leagues  2 divisions, 4 teams each. 3) Both leagues  2 divisions, 5 teams each. Those 3 are: balanced, no interleague, 162 games, start 1st Monday of April and end 1st Sunday of October. This/these is the exception: 2 leagues, 2 divisions, each has 6 teams. Unbalanced schedule, and including interleague. With a twist: 1 schedule has L1 D1 playing L2 D2 in interleague (as well as L1 D2 playing L2 D1), and the other one has L1 D1 playing L2 D1 in interleague (as well as L1 D2 playing L2 D2). Each team plays each team in interleague 6 times: 3 home, 3 road. All interleague on the same dates, all divisional games on the same dates. All games in each schedule the same time: 7 pm MonFri, Sat 4 pm, Sun 1 pm. If you have any doubts or questions then feel free to ask. Thank you in advance
