Bug turns out in my favor!

I had taken the Montreal Expos from last to first in one season. I won the NL Series and went on to the World Series against the Red Sox. I was up 3 games to 2 but was having trouble keeping their runs off the board. They took the last two games to win the World Series in 7 games. I was disappointed but pleased at my rating in the 600s and satisfied about my turnaround. I shut down my iPhone to return to it later.

The next day, I started up iOOTP, only to find that I was Bill Murray in Groundhog Day! I was back in the World Series, up 3 games to 2. This time, I didn't hesitate to yank my starter in the third inning before too much damage had been done. And I won the sixth game and the World Series!

Ordinarily, I'd consider this a tainted win but I've lost too many games (including a division title by Half A Game!) due to bugs and the infamous fat-fingered-pinch-hitting-substitution. Finally, one came out in my favor!

And, this time, I was going to savor it!

There's no point in describing more about the situation because there's no way I could duplicate it. But it was interesting that, in the previous game universe, three players made the Hall Of Fame while, in the new one, only two did ...

Wow very interesting. Congrats on the luck bug. It's interesting how the HOF class dropped one player but I think that shows the slight randomness in the formula which I love

Sweet revenge!

My experience is that iOOTP often fails to save if you just hit the home button. In theory it should, but the save takes long enough that it can fail if you do something else before it can finish. You can, in fact, force this to happen sometimes by tapping a mail message in notifications and then clicking a link in the mail message to quickly open two apps. Or double tap the home button and switch to an app that uses a lot of RAM.
