Exclamation Post issues about the major league roster set here please!

Hey guys,

we want to constantly improve the major league roster set, so please post issues you run across here once the game is released.

Please do not post issues with players being on wrong roster / lineup / pitching staff spots, the AI sets these up and there is nothing we can do to force player X to be used in a certain predefined way.

Also, do not post stuff like "Trout just hit .260 in my sim, this cannot be right." or "Why has X better ratings than Y?". Posts like these will be ignored! Major league player ratings are based on PECOTA projections, not opinion.


Please post here:
- Errors in contracts
- Issues with players being in the wrong organization
- Vastly wrong player ratings (disable scouting first so you see the real ratings), for example a Double-A scrub having allstar-calibre ratings

Thanks for helping!
Markus

Not an issue, but...

THE MINOR LEAGUE ABBREVIATIONS ISSUES ARE FIXED! No more PCL Pacific Conference being abbreviated "AC" in the default set!

Edit: Dayton and Daytona are both abbreviated DAY, but there's really no way around that one so I'll give you a pass on it. Greensboro is GRE and Greenville is GRB, I assume for Greenville (Boston) since there's a Greeneville with four E's that's a Houston affiliate. Two Burlington teams are both BUR, but they're different league levels so there isn't a problem telling them apart.

First issue. David Ortiz's extension was announced March 23, so it shouldn't be in the game as the ML roster set is as of March 21.

No real team owners in the quickstart. I assume this is for legal reasons and you can't use the real ones?

EDIT: Weird, there are a few correct owners in there...

Cubs-Nationals doubleheader on 6/28 is correctly not in the game. It is treated the same way as any other rescheduled game, i.e. played on its originally scheduled date.

Season start date is first Saturday on or after March 31, which could lead to some odd schedules in post-2014 seasons due to the default schedule including the Australia opening series.

Playoffs in most minor leagues are incorrect, though the current Midwest League format cannot be recreated in OOTP. Minors never use best-of-7 series IRL.

Speaking of the minors, the set start date for the full season leagues is the first Thursday on or after April 3, which doesn't line up with the majors. Ignoring the Australia Opening Series issue for a moment, in years where April 1 is a Monday or Tuesday, the full-season minors would start two days before the majors do. The first such year is 2019, followed by 2024 and 2025.

My assumption to how this error was made is that the devs looked at this year's schedule, saw it began on Thursday April 3, and put that in the quickstart. The obvious problem is the way this ties into the calendar: in year 2 of all quickstarts that do this, the season begins a week later than it did in year 1, i.e. April 9. The exact same error was made last year.

EDIT: More minor league weirdness, the short-season leagues don't line up with each other as well as they should. In the quickstart, the NY-Penn League starts a week late compared to the other short-season leagues if June 12 is a Thursday, which happens to be the case in 2014.

Another problem but an easy fix by me is that it is 4-18 so Rosters aren't as of today and Teams have made moves since opening day and another problem but will take along time for me to do update Stats so far for this season and also,update Standings but no can do.

I know arguing ratings is not normally a good idea for this thread, but Yu Darvish's Stuff rating shouldn't be that godly. Relative to ML, Darvish's Stuff is 112 out of 100. Second place is Strasburg at 97, third place Matt Moore at 86. Is Darvish really 30% better than anyone else in the entire American League?

St Louis doesn't have a scouting director

no scouts are working. I switched between all the teams and all the ratings were 0. Toggling the complete scouting options in the settings turned on OSA scouting but the individual team's scouts still did not show up

The roster set isn't as of March 21. Most teams did not have their rosters set then. It's as of March 30 or 31. haveband would know for sure.

St. Louis dies have Dan Kantrovitz correctly set as the scouting director and other teams also have their correct scouting guys. If they aren't showing up it's a game bug, not a roster bug, but they show up fine here.

Ratings of 0 means you need to rescout. Nothing to do with the rosters.

I dunno. Talk to BP about it That's how PECOTA rates him.

The rosters are frozen at opening day, just as they are every single year

We'll likely release an update later in the year in September or so.
