Nope. In my main save I'm like 1-4 in wild card games.But I have never blamed it on AI cheating, it's always that I never get big starts from my ace

That's because the AI temporarily reduces your ace's effectiveness for that game.

I am trying to imagine Markus and his team, somewhere this fall, at a staff meeting discussing how to make the AI cheat, at the expense of their customers. Perhaps it would sound something like this.

Markus: Glad you all can make it. The purpose of this meeting is too discuss how badly we can screw over our paying customers with an AI programmed to cheat. The floor is now open for discussion

OOTP employee: I have an idea, we could program the AI to cheat when our customers are almost ready to win a game.

Another OOTP employee: I bet it would be even more fun to do it during the playoffs or World States

Markus: What a great idea, I think you are onto something. That should really irritate our paying customers. Heck, who knows, with a little luck I should be able to completely ruin our brand, and in a little while we will all have to get day jobs.

OOTP Staff: (in unison) Yay, what a great idea, lets do it. Otherwise I will have wasted all that money a decade ago on my spiffy resume program.

Markus: So we are all agreed. This version we will deliberately sabotage OOTP just to frustrate our customers. That way we'll all need to get new jobs, hopefully low paying ones in the service industry. OK, everyone get to work on destroying our livelihood. Meeting adjourned.

For added realism (cheat)....reducing your magic number from 2 to 1 to clinch a wildcard spot triggers this email......

"From the Commissioner's Office

I regret to inform all GM's that the balance of the regular season along with the post-season has been cancelled due to a breakdown in negotiations between club ownership and the MLBPA. Please take comfort in knowing that no one associated with Major League Baseball regrets this unforeseen turn of events more than I do. Our office looks forward to this issue being resolved over the next few months and I am confident next season's start date will not be affected.

Have a nice off-season!

Regards,
(Commissioner's Name)"

I really wish you hadn't mentioned that Cont. Alt. Del. alternative which I wasn't aware of and will now have to exercise tremendous will power to ignore. I will say there does seem to be an inordinate number of two outs, nobody on rallies in the game, but I can't object when it benefits my team.

That would really suck if you were managing the Expos.

Keep in mind, C+A+D will not wipe a pitchers stamina.

You can make things worse.

Due to last year Markus had to remove the '**** the Cubs code' and replace it with '**** the Mets code'
The code was already there, just can't let it go to waste.

I can't believe that no one has mentioned the AI first inning cheat. That's the one where you are done 4-6 runs before the end of the 1st and you have you struggle for 8 innings to make the score respectable. Unless of course the 5th inning AI cheat also kicks in and you are down another 4-6 runs.This usually happens right before an upcoming series with a strong opponent and your entire pitching staff ends up fatigued.

in a show of how truly powerful OOTP has become, this code even began to affect their real-life counterparts
