Hope this helps someone else! I created this game schedule table to help with game scheduling. When I run scheduler in IMleagues some teams get early game slots repeatedly while others get the late game slots. To balance this out I made this little table to make scheduling quicker. We allow 8 teams per league with games scheduled on the hour from 7-11pm, season lasts for 5 weeks. I also have a table to account for 7 teams in a 6 week season with a bye week. Teams are listed down the left side, with their game times read across. Match game times to determine match-ups.
I know what you mean, normally the system picks one team and round robins the opponents with them in the first time slot and then repeats for others. Does this still happen when you select "Randomize Game Schedule" under Advanced Options? When I run the scheduler with this parameter, it fixes the early game issue. I may have to do it a couple of times due to the randomness of teams getting stuck in the late games but it eventually generates a pretty even schedule.
That is very helpful, thank you! Worked great.
