A couple quick changes
« on: June 02, 2017, 06:54:24 AM »
It occurs to me that we need to make a couple tweaks

for this season only the rookie league pro-service limit will be 3 years
for this upcoming draft only, the draft will be 20 rounds.

going forward

fictional player creation ages will be adjusted down to 17-20
regular draft will change ro 15 or 16 rounds, I have yet to decide

I'll put it in the constitution later today

comments, suggestions & complaints are always welcome

So many weird unemployed players already.   Thought the new R league would suck them up.  I find it strange that there are already hundreds of nobodies out there reducing the need for mundane minor leaguers.  I can almost always find some vet with better skills available to quit his Walmart job and sub in when needed

only 40 players 20 or under are in FA. and while you can find rookie league eligible players 21+ I have not found an easy way to sort them by pro service years.  since only 25%  (a sampling so it's not an exact estimate to be sure) or so of 21yo's seem to be eligible for the rookie league i upped the eligibility limits for this season so it's easier to manage filing up the extra roster slots hopefully making it easier to absorb the FA's.

and the increase draft rounds needed to be done with the extra layer of teams . 13 rounds theoretically gives us enough to keep a team full, but every player would have to spend all 2 years in rookie development, thats not even counting injuries or insanely crappy players. it barely works now, we really do skirt the edge, it's not a bad thing, we just have to be careful not to fall off. so i think the question is 15 or 16 rounds

 i lean towards 15, but am open to a good argument for 16

I am good with 16 rounds. it will be autodraft for me after round 5. So the hopes for the Rookie league is to increase the development of some of the younger players right?

essentially. the theory is to allow us to develop more depth.  which even if the players don't make it to the majors it gives those that do better competition to play against which gives us better data to make decisions

in theory anyway  8)

set injuries to very low and you will still get plenty. I know, as I have played 2 seasons on ootp18.

  • Berkshire_JJ: Is there an email setting I can toggle on? I feel like others get alerts for new messages, sims, etc., but I don't. :(
    June 14, 2017, 11:02:04 AM
  • Ajax: I get emails when jazz posts the sim.  I think it uses the email address loaded in my profile on this site
    June 14, 2017, 11:56:58 AM
  • Berkshire_JJ: Huh, might be hitting a spam folder then. Thanks.

  • HawkHunter: Is anyone else having problems with the in game emails? I delete them and they keep showing up after every sim!
    June 17, 2017, 10:57:49 AM
  • clashcity: Been working for me. Do you export after you delete them?
    June 17, 2017, 11:36:35 AM
  • SirGodrikz: I have the same problem. I export after deleting them
    June 17, 2017, 09:33:50 PM
  • Ajax: Yes.  And still having some duplicates that have to be read/deleted twice.   Also crashes after downloads complete before controls re activate.  Seems ootp18 is unstable
    June 18, 2017, 09:50:55 AM
  • HawkHunter: Yes Clash, I delete my emails before exporting. The duplicate emails are an ongoing thing with me as well Ajax. My game is not crashing after the downloads are complete, so thats a positive!
