We've been discussing some changes to how we do environments for SHS 2 (mostly because I think environments get stale after the 3rd time they're used). Before making a change, we'd like to get some input from potential managers and voters, so...here are the 3 options I've come up with.

Business as Usual: This option keeps environments and the environment steal card the same as we've always done them. For those who aren't familiar with the game and its rules, this means that we have 3 environments active at any one time. Every 1 to 2 rounds, one environment is dropped and a new one is added, the frequency varies depending on the number of fights in a round.

Home Team Managers select the environment. Visiting Managers can use the Environment Steal Card to take away Home Team Advantage and chose the environment. Either manager can use the card to select from a set of "extra" environments (if available).

Drop Environment after 3rd Use: This option is the same as Business as Usual, except...environment changes are made based on environment use instead of in a rotation; an environment will be dropped once it's been used 3 times. Depending on the number of fights in a round, the list of available environments could change in the middle of a round.

Home Team Managers still select the environment. Environment Steal Card works the same as for Business as Usual.

New Environment for Each Fight: For this option, each fight has a different environment. The way it would work is this, we estimate the number of fights and define enough environments to cover them all. Once the schedule is set, we run the environments through a Randomizer and assign them to the fights in the order it selects.

We'll have some extra environments defined in case we end up with more fights than anticipated and post those as needed.

The Final Fight Environment will not be posted in advance and if we have fewer fights than we estimate, the last fight's environment will be replaced with the Final environment.

The Environment Steal Card can be used as follows
1. Swap the environment in your fight with the environment in a future fight.
2. Swap the environment for your fight with one from a list of "extra" environments. The environment you're replacing goes onto the extras list and is available for someone else to choose.

If both Managers use the Environment Card, the Home Team Manager's card trumps the Visitor's.

What do you think??

(Poll is set to run for 2 weeks)

This will be my first time as a Manager so I am not as familiar with the Business as Usual. So I am voting for New Environment for each fight. Anything to even the playing field!

Questions:

Will there be a Master List of Environments posted before the competition starts? Not necessarily in the order in which they appear, just an idea of what to expect.

Who decides which Environments are available? Do Managers get a vote or be able to make suggestions?

Maybe more later, if I think of anything else...Thanks!

The plan for the new Environment for each fight option is to have all of the Environments, except for the Final Fight Environment identified and posted before the managers have to submit for the first fight. This includes the order of the environments (which environment goes with which fight) which I hope we'll be able to post when the schedule gets posted.

The SHS Mods (Jim and I) have the final say on what Environments are available. I already have some ideas for environments and I plan on posting a thread to take suggestions. I'm going to wait until we get a little closer to starting for that.
