I was able to get the 21 splits into either 11H/10A or 10H/11A to minimize the variance in that. There were only a handful of 2-game series, and most of those are in the first few days, a first few days that have a few oddities of consecutive offdays for teams, something that is required in some cases like this with odd-number-of-team divisions. The worst bit I think is in each league a team that plays an opponent in the first two days, then it off, then plays that same opponent on the weekend in the other park. Other than that I think it turned out well, at least for that distribution of games.

Compared to the modern MLB 162-game layout I started the season two weeks later (mid-April), ended it a week earlier (late September), and put the All-Star Break a week later (late mid-July). Let me know if this still is not quite what you would like or if you would like the layout shifted around.

Ugh. I even knew that. I tested a league configuration like that not too long ago and personally found that the game choked on it. I guess part of my brain also went down and got lost like the server hard drive a couple of weeks back. I feel bad because I should have told you that would have been a problem, but my brain apparently just went into problem-solving mode and stayed completely out of problem-recognizing mode. Hope the lost time on the league was not too disappointing.

The first three I can probably just build from components I already have, as I was able to do with much of your previous recent request. The only question I have right now is, how unbalanced do you want the last schedule? Below are some possibilities of total per opponent numbers of games I figured:

*~16-17 intradivision, ~7 interdivision
*~14-15 intradivision, ~9 interdivision
*~13-14 intradivision, ~10 interdivision
*~12 intradivision, ~11 interdivision (of course, now virtually balanced)

There is probably no way around having a 1-game variance in the total number of games against each opponent at least in either the intra- or interdivision games. And like is discussed in some of the posts above from last night, there would virtually certainly be differences in the H/A split totals of up to 3 games. For examples, 7 games may be split 3H/4A & 4H/3A, 16 games may be split 7H/9A & 9H/7A, and 9 games may be split 3H/6A & 6H/3A. Is that acceptable?

As for the interleague schedule: 16-17 intradivision, 7 interdivision.
The 7 divided into 2-2-3 series (the two 2's or home away, and the 3-game series the other way around); the 16-17 interdivision divided into any sort of 2 or 3 or 4 game series as you wish (but always a 3-game series over the weekend. Also: if 17 games - 9H/8A or 8H/9A; 16 games - 8H/8A.

Another request for 2 leagues, 2 divisions each, 6 teams per league: a similar schedule for the National League in the 80's: 18 intradivision games, 12 interdivision.

I know this seems kind of difficult....I realize that now.
This is why I wish you: good luck.

Thank you in advance

Thanks a lot gmo. I can tweak with everything else, just needed a schedule to work with. I know you're pretty good with getting them going and you do a fantastic job.

It looks like it could work real well. The time frame is great. It's perfect for what it should accomplish. I appreciate your hard work, though I know this is neither hard nor work for you.

16 team, 162 game schedule

2 leagues, 2 divisions, 4 teams per division, or
2 leagues, 1 division, 8 teams per division

all games within league (23-24 per opponent)
no interleague games


Divisions within each league are arbitrary as schedule is balanced. See top of the file for more details.

The new 10-team schedule I just put into the same post as the previous because it is the same thing with just the leagues reversed, and the 16-team, 20-team, and 24-team schedules are in the posts above.

As for this with those numbers of matchups, there is this schedule already in the ether. The only work there would be changing the game times to 7/4/1 like those above if you wanted that. Also an actual National League schedule like that could be extracted from an historical schedule in that thread then replicated to make for a 24-team league. That would likely involve a few doubleheaders, which apparently now at least work properly in the latest version of the game yet still may not be desirable. Pardon me for trying to avoid the 18/12 layout because though it looks like a very elegant solution there are some difficulties in making it. But just let me know what you would like.

soccer schedule

Hello GMO

I have admired your work with schedules up until now, and I know that you won't disappoint me.

This is a schedule based on the 2001 season.
16 teams, 2 leagues, 2 divisions each. Each team plays each team 6 times: 3 home, 3 away. 90 game schedule.
It is a soccer schedule: meaning, team 1 plays team 16 in week 1, and then in week 16. A team plays every other team once before the ASG, and once after. The order is the same (ex. team 1 plays 16 week 1 and week 16, plays team 14 week 2 and week 17, etc.) Try not to bunch too many home or away series in a row.
Each week 1 series is played: either from sunday thru tuesday, or wednesday thru friday (your choice which days of the week is each series). Friday games start @ 1 pm, the rest start @ 7 pm.
Season starts the week of March 11.
Each week is 1 series only. Exceptions: Week of May 6, 2 series. All-Star Game: June 17. June 27-29: 1 series. Week of September 2, 2 series.
Sep. 9-11: series
Sep. 19-21: series
Sep. 23-25: series.

Also: I will try and run a league cup, in which each team plays in the 1st round. If it loses, it falls out of the competition. If it wins, it moves on to the next round.
Will OOTP not have a problem with the number of games put in when creating the league?

Thank you in advance

I can work on laying out the matchups, but let me make sure I have this all straight before I dive fully into it. There is one series each Sun-Fri week either Sun-Tue or Wed-Fri, except for (1) May 6-May10 & Sep 2-Sep 7 when there are series both Sun-Tue & Wed-Fri, (2) Jun17-Jun22 when there is no series but the All-Star Game on Jun17, and (3) those 4 weeks when the series are on set parts of the week. Is this, as listed out below, correct?

Code:
Wk  1  Mar11-Mar16
Wk  2  Mar18-Mar23
Wk  3  Mar25-Mar30
Wk  4  Apr 1-Apr 6
Wk  5  Apr 8-Apr13
Wk  6  Apr15-Apr20
Wk  7  Apr22-Apr27
Wk  8  Apr29-May 4
Wk  9  May 6-May10 (2 series)
Wk 10  May13-May17
Wk 11  May20-May24
Wk 12  May27-May31
Wk 13  Jun 3-Jun 8
Wk 14  Jun10-Jun15
Wk 15  Jun17-Jun22 (no series, ASG Jun17)
Wk 16  Jun24-Jun29 (series are on Jun27-Jun29)
Wk 17  Jul 1-Jul 6
Wk 18  Jul 8-Jul13
Wk 19  Jul15-Jul20
Wk 20  Jul22-Jul27
Wk 21  Jul29-Aug 3
Wk 22  Aug 5-Aug10
Wk 23  Aug12-Aug17
Wk 24  Aug19-Aug24
Wk 25  Aug26-Aug31
Wk 26  Sep 2-Sep 7 (2 series)
Wk 27  Sep 9-Sep14 (series are on Sep 9-Sep11)
Wk 28  Sep16-Sep21 (series are on Sep19-Sep21)
Wk 29  Sep23-Sep28 (series are on Sep23-Sep25)
When you say my choice as to which segment of the week onto which to place the series on most of the weeks, do you want all of the series of that week on the same days, or is it okay in that week to have some series on Sun-Tue and other series Wed-Fri? Any preference on those Sun-Tue & Wed-Fri choices - try to even them out over the season, more one than the other, anything like that?

As for wanting to not have too many home or away series in a row for any team, typically I work with a limit of 4 series in a row home or away, but try to have as few single series homestands or roadtrips. With your unusual layout for the schedule, would you like me to try to keep the number of consecutive series as few as possible (try to alternate home & away series as much as I can) or just do not let there be too many in a row like I normally try to do?

How exactly do you plan on doing your league cup? Will that be in the place of a typical postseason? You can schedule those games for yourself, but you will have to make sure there is at least one more game at least as a placeholder so the game does not assume your regular season is over. What you can do is just have a single game between two random teams scheduled for when the final of the cup will be (or begin), then when you schedule that last game or series you delete that extra game and the cup final will then be the end of the season. The games as you schedule them for that cup will end up as regular season games. Maybe that is your plan, but I just wanted to make sure you knew those games would be added to the standings and the stats would be added to the players' totals as normally. The game will have no problem if you just create the league with a 90-game schedule, then import the 90-game schedule you have specified to have made, and finally manually set the games that will end up sending all the teams to total schedule lengths of various totals over 90 games.

soccer schedule

Hello GMO, thanks for the quick reply.

The dates are correct, except for one exception I failed to add:
Week 22, series on August 5-7 only.

The weeks that have no specific date for them, you may place the series either all on Sun-Tue, all Wed-Fri, half each, 6 on 1 and 2 on the other, etc.

As for the schedule of home and away being like soccer...I've devised a way to keep the schedule looking like a soccer one. Here goes:
Week 1: 1-16, 2-15, 14-3, 4-13, 12-5, 6-11, 10-7, 8-9.
Week 2: 13-6, 3-1, 15-4, 5-14, 9-10, 7-12, 11-8, 16-2.
Week 3: 12-9, 4-2, 1-5, 6-15, 14-7, 8-13, 3-16, 10-11.
Week 4: 7-1, 5-3, 2-6, 9-14, 15-8, 16-4, 13-10, 11-12.
Week 5: 5-16, 6-4, 3-7, 8-2, 1-9, 10-15, 14-11, 12-13.
etc....
If you need weeks 6-15 I'll send you them.

As for the cup...it will take place during the regular season, so I guess there will be no problem of confusing it with the playoffs.

If there are any further questions please let me know.\
Thank you in advance

gmo, I could use a 126 game schedule for a 16 team league.

2 leagues; 8 teams per league.
No interleague.

18 games against all teams in the same league.
Begins on April 1; ends on August 31.

I've found some that could be edited, but havent got it as I want it yet.

1962 MLB Schedules,
editted to remove all doubleheaders


20 teams, 10 teams per league, 1 division per league

Games: 162
Length: 175 days
Interleague: No
Format: Balanced
A team plays 18 games against each of the 9 other opponents in the league

Year starts on: Monday
Season opens: Mon. Apr. 9
Season closes: Sun. Sept. 30
All-Star Game: Tue. July 10; <s>Mon. July 30</s>

Original 1962 MLB schedule here.

Extra games on days shifted around so teams play no more than one game per day. Aimed first to move games to keep them contiguous with other series with same matchup, but in some cases the games are singles (something not at all unprecedented for the era) placed attempting to keep travel considerations fairly realistic like not having a California team have a game in New York placed between two home series. Offdays severely trimmed by eliminating doubleheaders. Break for 2nd doubleheader removed.



1963 MLB Schedules,
editted to remove all doubleheaders


20 teams, 10 teams per league, 1 division per league

A team plays 18 games against each of the 9 other opponents in the league

Year starts on: Tuesday
Season opens: Mon. Apr. 8
Season closes: Tue. Oct. 1

From few offdays to many...

That is 22 weeks. Two 3-game series each week would be 132 games. Subtracting 3 games for an All-Star Break (do you want an All-Star Break, and if so, when?) gets it down to 129, then cutting 3 of the series down to 2-gamers gives the 126. That works out perfectly to playing every team in three 3-game series at home and three 3-game series away, except for one team either home or away being played in one 3-game series and three 2-game series. It works out very nicely and elegantly, but being so perfect there would be little variety in the offdays as all teams would be off one day each week on either Monday or Thursday, again except for three weeks when all teams would be off Mon & Thu, one of which would be the first week of the season.

Left on my own I would probably put an All-Star Game at July 1 and set the rest of the schedule up as described above. Does that sound satisfactory? If not, or there is anything else you want to specify, just let me know.
