VBigB Posted May 6, 2018 Share Posted May 6, 2018 I really think the broadcasting could use an overhaul. Two things bother me: 1) The most popular AI company in my current 13 year game has 17 broadcasting deals of which they mostly use 3. This basically locks up any broadcasters that will only carry 1 promotion. 2) When a deal is extended, the contract length simply gets added to the existing length eventually resulting in deals like 12 shows over 6 years. I propose a couple of things that could potentially make this part of the game more interesting. 1) Broadcaster contracts should have a third term "x shows per year" or something similar. If you don't show the targeted number of shows in the time frame it would lower your reputation (Media Reputation - see #2) with the broadcaster maybe even leading them to not renew your contract. Meeting or exceeding would raise it. Smaller broadcasters may only require one show per year while larger would require more. 2) Each company should have a Media Reputation (this could potentially be slip in two...a global reputation which could change more slowly and then a specific reputation with each broadcaster). This reputation would affect whether broadcasters will negotiate with a company. This could be modified by the size of the company because lets face it if your an international company (ie the biggest game in town) media will overlook a lot. Potentially this reputation could trend towards a neutral position over time in addition to other modifiers (scandals, meeting/not meeting contract obligations, broadcasting good/poor shows, company credibility, company stability, etc.) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
