In your franchise, whats more appealing? Winning or Fair Play?

So I am all about franchise mode in all sports games I play. Anotehr important factor to me though is having sliders and settings that make the game a challenge. To me hving a team that makes the playoffs every year and wins almost all games is not that much fun. Actually find it boring. But on the flip side I see people posting their results and they are winning all the game s20-1, 15-4, Winnings 125 games in the season.

So really for those who love franchise mode what do you find is the most enjoyable way to get the most out of it and keep your interest?

Fair play. I have self imposed trade restrictions.

Re: In your franchise, whats more appealing? Winning or Fair Play?

Fair play. As long as the wins and losses come realistically and through no advantage beyond having better/worse players I'm happy. I try to keep it realistic and not take advantage of the CPU AI shortcomings. I'm currently 23-35 after going 87-75 in year one and 97-65 in year 2. A lot of people would go crazy having fallen off so hard but to me it's fun. Is it my players, bad luck, poor tactics? Do I call the season a wash and focus on next year, am I a trade away from turning it around? The strategy and the not knowing if my next move is the right move is exciting. That goes for all sports games I play. The thrill of the competition is what drives me as much as wanting to win.

fair play. some of my most entertaining hours in franchise has been spent doing my best just to win 70 games. it's the journey, not the destination. but I ain't gonna lie, a World Series championship would be nice

That is awesome that you stick with it. I am that way I want the team to win if it should but if we get into a spot I need to rebuild it can be exciting to see young players develop over time even at the cost of winning.

Fair play and earning my wins.

I was quite happy to be winning 75 games in 16/17. Each win felt like an achievement and I knew which plays were missed opportunities. Then suddenly to win 90+ in TS18 felt too easy, like the game was gifting wins to me. That was nowhere near as satisfying.
