I've had 2 H2H leagues for the past 5 years; one does the "win per category", the other is a "one win overall". I've been in my H2H auction "one win overall" league for 16 years. personally, I find the One Win league to be more dramatic and reflective of baseball. people are correct when they say that this format doesn't incentivize a balanced team. This is true. But just like real baseball, you can build your team around a philosophy. some teams load up on power, others on speed, some focus on their bullpens or starting pitching. with 12-16 teams in the league, you can have a variety of strategies competing against each other and all be competitive. in a basic roto league, if you don't build from balance, you can't compete. While you occasionally get the matchups where a hitting team plays a pitching team and they have punted each other's strengths. but this generally means that each team must steal ONE category from the other team's strength to get the win. You also get the matchups where each team is built on power pitching or power hitting and they just blow each other out of the water for the week. Just like real baseball this system allows teams to develop an identity since there is only one win to compete for. It also makes trades more interesting, since each team values different skill sets. Last year we had a Figgins for Howard trade that caused a lot of excitement, but worked out to benefit both teams. You would never see a trade like this in straight roto. my 2 cents.
