H2H or Rotto

Postby Mighty Monks » Sun Feb 15, 2004 4:07 pm

I have played both but was wondering what most of you preferred. I can think h2h keeps peoples chances of winning going until the end, where rotto the best team over the whole year is the winner and teams that drop out dont effect the standings as much. WHat do most of you guys prefer???

roto, there's no funny strategies and provides 1st place to the team who has made the best moves and draft

H2H because there actually is strategy.

There's no micro-management in Roto. The only strategy is: If they're playing today, put them in your lineup.

To be fair, i do try and play one Roto league every year, but it just doesn't provide much excitement for me.

Except you don't start your pitchers on every start- if you know what you're doing and set it up ahead of time. There's strategy in trying to remain competitive in every catagory at once. Draft a Troy Glaus and you're going to pay for it in avg unless you compensate otherwise. In head to head there's too much crazy stuff like not using sp and barely getting min ip to punt w and k and win whip era and sv.

personally i prefer roto, but i have had more fun in H2H. H2H just seems to keep the medeocre owners a little more interested.

H2H. I have made this comment here a few times b4 and will do it again. In H2h it is so much more like real baseball. You have teams playing each other and the top teams make the playoffs where anything can happen. I have never seen a world series determined by which team had the Highest batting average, Most stolen bases and most Hr's. It is just not as realistic as H2h.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
