Stadium Calculator

Post by stomalomalus on Tue Sep 23, 2014 11:43 pm

Is there a stadium calculator since the changes a couple of seasons back? Trying to work out what to do at the end of this season, as I'm just working on a 900 seat increase despite not filling the uncovered (thought it best to leave that one as is instead of decreasing, as I will only want to increase it again soon).

Thanks

There are stadium calculators in some of the threads, to search type Stadium into the search box towards the top right. If your privileges need to be updated perhaps a kind Mod could attend to such (Wing should be along in the not too distant future, if he can tear himself away from Whitby Ice Rink)

Whatever the calculator says about standing ignore and leave your standing alone, and I wouldn't be in a rush to expand uncovered even if you were selling out. Uncovered takes a profit when attended of either $4 or $5, and makes a loss if not filled, so it can take an age to claw back the capital spend. But sensible increases to covered, members and corporate areas can be well worth checking what your stadium size should be.

One further note was your comment that you've some bots in your league, if you play the bots at home in the 2nd half of the season rather than human teams you perhaps don't need to be in a rush to expand right now. What are your attendances like Vs bots in the league?

Attendances vs bots are 100% in all areas bar uncovered (which I expanded too much last time). In a month, the upgrade of 900 seats will be complete, giving me more in covered, members and corporate. Then we'll see.

You too, although I reckon I'll need more luck Wink More than 100k CSR I'm giving away. My best player is about equal to your best reserve and my 7 is injured.

Could really do with some cash, though, as I'm trying to build up to your level in the next 3 seasons. Hopefully I'll get lucky with YA scouting at the start of next season, which would be a potential money pot the next season.

Been looking at this again, trying to make the most of the next few seasons money wise...

So, my problem is with BR Manager.

According to that, my stadium should be making a maximum profit of 88720. However, last season, my last home game - against a bot - gave me a profit of 101,000.

What do I believe, therefore, when it comes to upgrading?

Br Manager may well still have standing down as losing money, it used to lose circa $4 per spot and now makes a small profit. In any event if expanding don't add anything to standing.

Yeah, my plan is to only add seats to the covered sections and above now. BR Manager suggests adding A LOT to covered, but I did that previously with uncovered and now every other part of my ground fills up every game, except uncovered...

So, of course, I'm loathe to go down that route again.

I'm currently:

2300
6400
1500
750
50

I'll be upgraded to:

2300
6400
2000
1000
200

On Oct. 21st.

After that, I think I'll upgrade about 2/3rds of the way through next season, looking to boost to around the 14,500 mark. After looking at things, I believe I should have around 1,800 members by then. Was thinking something like:

2300
6400
4000
1600
200

200 Corporate is a lot, I have that on a stadium of 19k with 2,400 members. It'll sell out in the league Vs most (but not all) human Div 3 teams, it doesn't sell out Vs bot teams in the cup.

I like the big increase in corporate, but that is perhaps a big big increase.

It probably is a bit big, yes, but I was hoping it would be something I could fill out for the big matches in the next 4 years, before promotion.

It's all part of my cunning plan (that and I can't undo what I've already done).

It gets you around a future expansion of corporate, but even though there's an expansion cost each time of $25k it's still better to not have big empty areas in a stadium.

Well, as I finished up on, I can't undo it, can I?

If I could, I probably would, but it's gone, so oh well, I'll have to live with it.

What's done is indeed done. Not much of a glitch in proceedings as these things go, might be a thread in that actually, a 'what's the biggest screw up you've made'

Oh, easily my first few seasons.

Start YA, leave it Lvl2, realise I'm losing money, ditch YA, realise there's no way I'm going to catch up with the better players unless I have a YA, start up YA again.

Lost quite a bit down the drain there. Plus, my current back up lock. He's terrible.
