You've definitely piqued my curiosity with the addition of opener/follower. How does that work, do you assign pitch limits to the openers? Would this also work for the minor leagues as a piggyback starter system?

Also have there been improvements to bullpen roles? I'd love to assign reliever usage purely by leverage and it seems like a lot of MLB teams are basically doing that too.

Yes, there's a league setting to disable it.

It more or less works by letting the opener throw as if they were a reliever, and a follower throw as if they were a starter, as opposed to currently where if your "starter" comes in 2nd in a game, they always seem to be limited to like 50-60 pitches.

Ah, okay. That implementation clears it up quite a bit. I think this will be a fun new feature to play with that opens up some really interesting strategic team-building opportunities. I already have a bunch of ideas floating around in my head and I can't wait to test which ones work.

Although I do agree with Markus, he told me the same nearly ten years ago about feeder leagues and I accepted the answer and still do. OOTP cannot properly replicate amateur baseball. All leagues give you service time whether it be counted towards pro years or ML service time, you cannot avoid it unless you consistently reset service times in the feeder league.

When it comes to your quote, I'd like to channel that towards Associations and not feeders.

Can bench/hitting/pitching coaches now get hired elsewhere as a manager before their contracts are up?

Fair enough.

I might have to try to convince more people to use it, so it gets improved then

I thought I read earlier that there will be one-on-one on-line play? I.e. If I want to play my brother who lives in another location we can set-up a game (league?).

Did I miss it being mentioned? Is my memory failing me?

Thanks

Very happy to hear of continued efforts upgrade and improve the AI. That is the heart and soul of the game. Everything else is just window dressing.

Speaking of window dressing -- love the spray charts idea.

So barring the new CBA being added are we, or can we at least get a flag to limit QO to one time per player?
This was the thing I wanted to see changed most. Glad to see it's updated. Would still love luxury tax and international free agency pool money though

Will it be possible to use a "Follower" without using an "Opener"? I believe this would be key to the piggybacking starters strategy.

Yeah, while having your starter being able to come in and work as if they were starting is nice, when teams run the opener, they usually dont have the
"follower" go 90+ pitches like a starter would. I would want the "follower" to go maybe 3-4 innings at the most if i was running an ideal team so you would have 4 innings of opener/follower and then going hardcore bullpen for the rest of the game

Does this mean starters and relievers will more or less have a universal fatigue rating? For example, changing a guy from a starter to reliever or putting a starter into the game in relief gets you a lot of different fatigue levels in terms of how many pitches they can throw.

I like the upgrades I'm seeing but I was really hoping to see something about NPB historical sim. I saw one of the dev's mention it as a possibility for 19 on here a couple years ago. Since it wasnt in 19 I was hoping 20 would be the one but it doesnt seem to be. Unless it's one of those soon to be updated features on the list

We do also have a modified version of the MLB FA system, without the first round pick compensation, and where the compensation varies with the size of the new deal and the revenue sharing status of the club (although we don't use exactly the same rules, we try to keep it close).
That's awesome! That alone is worth my pre-order (but I buy every year anyway).

One of the most realistic features will be when the league "strikes" in 2021, which will coincide with my wife not letting me play for a while because I'm spending too much time on the computer.
