Game breaking MyLeague bug/problem?

Every time I sim through a season of MyLeague, i encounter this same problem in every off season.

It seems like every team in the league somehow completely runs out of cap space and there’s no room left for anyone to sign players during free agency, so big name guys like Nikola Vucevic, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram, etc. just sit in this free agency pool limbo for the entire season until next year when they MAYBE get signed by a team in free agency.

Anyone know how to fix this? Anyone else notice this? It’s really getting annoying and ruining the game for me. So many good players are basically just being removed from the league

Nothing but raising the inflation rate, which i don’t see how that could be causing the problem, but i’ll have to try simming a couple seasons with the inflation rate at default.

If that is what’s causing the problem, that’s pretty annoying that they have all of those salary cap settings in the game that can’t even be used.

MyLeague as a whole is pretty broken without severe manual intervention/slider changes. I just fix up all 30 teams each offseason with trades/signings. It's a huge effort but no real choice

Problem is thereís no cap room on any of the teams to sign new players. I donít know why this is. Must be some type of bug because every team has like -50 million cap space.

Also, Double checked on this. Ran a sim with all of the settings at default and the same thing happened.

Re: Game breaking MyLeague bug/problem?

I think the problem runs similar to what we see right now in the MLB. In 2K with default settings, players as a whole are asking for too much so after one year the inflation rate doesn't have enough time to catch up with player demands, so the players sit there because teams cant meet their demands.

Then, lets say you use a slider set like schnaidt's. That set works great for the first 5 or so years, but then with 2K's overrated draft classes, players reach their potentials too often so league-wide talent is overinflated and now teams cant meet player demands because there's too many good players.

So, to get past that you need good draft classes that have enough busts or players that just wont progress to their max, and you can do that by peak ages, injuries, or both. That gets everything working properly, but it becomes exponentially more difficult (which it should be) and either A) 2K just doesn't have enough time to fix it for whatever reason, or B) they choose not to because they fear making MyLeague realistic from the jump will scare some players away. *

Basically what it comes down to is, yes it sucks but it's difficult to make it realistic from the start because everyone has a different idea of what that is.
If you know what you want to fix and know how to fix it, it really doesn't take THAT much time. It sucks that we have to edit these things but thats probably why they gave us the customization tools, so that we can make things how we want it to be.


*Also, lets be honest, we simheads that want it realistic are more willing to put in the time to edit than casuals who dont care and just want to play out a season or two. So with that in mind, why cater to the group thats more likely to do it on their own anyways.

^ what he said but the problem with this when editing a draft class, it kills mostly all the immersion.

I have 80 rated players asking for 20+ mil a season that are about 23-25yrs old

There are some working on sliders to help this but there is only so much that they can do. It has to be addressed internally at 2k and well, seeing as its part of the "franchise" game mode, it more then likely won't be addressed at all
