Post Poll 2. Breeding difficulty (league mode).
We need a consensus on the league mode breeding difficulty. There are two options.

1. Leave as-is.
2. More predictable breeding.

Option 2 is moving towards how SO6 worked to a degree. The breeding is more unrealistic but predictable. As with the previous poll please leave a message on the thread and the way you voted. Only these votes will be counted.

More like SO6 the breeding in SO7 is Pants Mark and with TTF gone I think we need more predictable breeding.

A bit torn, but voted for more like SO6. Most important is getting the mode out soon.

It has to be normal, on the old patches u could throw away 2 out of every 10 horses bred because they would have less than 10 percent potential but I played the flat this weekend and 8 out of every 10 horses I bred u could throw away because of no potential, if we had to bred with stats like that people would go mad and I think a lot of people would stop breeding.

TBH I think it’s highly unlikely that I will be taking part

I am sure this isn't what you want to hear but for me the predictability is not the issue.

The idea behind the new breeding is a good one - having to have your own mares and buy yearlings from auction etc.

The big issue for me is horses having multiple foals every year and horses with really poor form being at stud in the first place.

The basic idea is brilliant but I would like to see something like 12 stallion slots available in your barn. so if you wanted to stand a new one you had to retire or sell one of the old ones. I would like to see less stallions available for hire so that you really have to have a breeding plan. More thinking and more strategy. I would like to see AI breeders refusing your request if you try and get a poor mare covered.

There is so much scope for that side of the game it could almost be a new game in itself.

As for the poll I think less predictability will make the league a more level playing field but on the down side it could put people off as it may seem too difficult.

More predictability will probably make the game more accessible for both new players and returning SO6ers but could lead to the same problems we had in SO6 where the gulf between levels gets too big

I think the breeding model as is will have the opposite effect that we're after though more predictable will undoubtably lead us to where we currently are is it not possible to meet somewhere in the middle ? anyway I voted easier as the harder model will become too frustrating for newbies and oldies alike.

Leave As Is - S06 was Way too easy, you never got really standout performers in the league with the old model. Lot's of bunched up finishes. With the more realistic breeding model we might get superstars in the league like a Frankel or Secretariat.
