Home Field Advantage

Home Field Advantage

I know that a previous version of this game had a problem with the home team winning practically every game and there were very few road wins. Will that be fixed for DDSCB 19?

That was checked and rechecked and the % of wins by home teams in DDSCB2018 was very closely aligned to the winning % by home teams in real life Division 1.

Yes, if you check out actually NCAA Div I home records as I did, you would find roughly 6 out of 350 teams had losing records at home. So, yes, most home teams winning is highly realistic.

Home team should win around 60 percent of the time. Is that what the results show?

the historical norm for home teams winning is about 66.7%. Winning on the road is HARD! Especially if you aren't a significantly better team. Let's put it in another perspective. In order to finish the season at a mediocre 15-15, assuming a balanced road/home schedule during 12 game non- conference season, you have to win between 6-8 games on the road or at neutral sites. Winning on the road is HARD! Just as it is in real life, and just as it is in this game. I think the game since it's first inception had the home/road advantage down just right.
