Their ratings won't change. It will only update players based on their MLB stats that they accrue during the season.

Ah that makes sense. Thanks for the quick response!


Just for clarification, if it's August in real life, am I able to load up a date in May and play from there with accurate stats/standings? Or am I only able to load from the current date? Thank you once again!

Updated Roster/ratings done Daily?

How would that work for online league play? If an online league played the real life schedule a few days behind real life play will the game keep updating player ratings based on real life daily results ? And if a player gets injured in real life and placed on injured list it would correlate to the online league also and that player is hurt also?

I believe the Strat-O-Matic baseball online league game has this feature also!

I don't mean this in a bad way, but I think the feature I am most excited about is having starters listed as backups at other positions in the depth chart.

If they worked better, more people would use them


I actually am excited for the depth chart options and improved 3D

This. Always frustrated when I wanted someone to DH and I couldn't get them to be a backup somewhere else.

Ratings do not automatically update, but there is an option to manually update the ratings. So you could have an online league where the commissioner hits that button to recalculate ratings before each sim if you wanted.

Updating injuries in progress may be possible, but we still need to investigate more since the injury updates we get aren't quite as reliable.

I think it's the feature I like best as well too it works well, and the AI is not bad at using it either.

Also a reminder to people that I'll be on our Twitch stream tonight with TJ to go over a lot of this in more detail, and try to answer whatever I can

I don't think so to be honest. Also, I think they work quite well they already do right now.

In this current version there is no way for me to create my own database of players and make my own pool of players easily/en masse that would generate draft pools (to my knowledge).

Is that something that will be possible in the new version?

IMO Feeder leagues are doing exactly what they were designed to do: create a draft pool with a statistical history. I don't believe Markus & Co. ever intended them to emulate real amateur baseball in any way.

For the function they do have they are also a bit of a pain. A 30 team league with four minor league levels needs 150+ feeder to make a draft pool. That is 150+ teams playing games, churning out players, creating history, and using game resources.

IMO the best way to improve feeders isn't to emulate amateur baseball rather it's add a function to delete players who never played professionally. There is already an option to delete players who never played in the majors.

Just my $.02 on feeders

"All new Spray Charts for players"


AWWWW YISSSSSSSSSSS


Random thought - have you made a way to import existing free agents to the draft pool and vice-versa? I know it's not a IRL thing but something I would like to be able to do.
