    Opening this up to the rest of the board. If you want to play, speak up and claim a team.

    - 5 game or 7 game series?
    - I'd prefer to have an AL side and an NL side of the bracket
    - You will have to use a 4 man rotation. You can't use the same SP every game.

    5 game series would give us a better shot at finishing the whole thing. What pitching/hitting settings are we using?

    What's default, All-Star? Probably leave it there.

    Guess pitch on Classic.

    No injuries.

    No ejections.

    Perfect umps.

    Instead of series. would you guys rather do the custom online league? There's no playoffs, you just play like 20 games or whatever. Advantage here is fatigue would be on so pitchers would be tired after pitching.

    Online league and then have the 4 best records have a playoffs among each other? I don't want to make it more complicated than needed bc we'll never finish it.

    when you create the online league it should give the option to add a playoff up to 8 teams

    I read this year's doesn't have a playoff option? I can check tonight.

    It’s clear why this feature wasn’t called Online Franchise, or anything else with the word “franchise” included. To use that term, the mode must have some semblance of an offseason structure with free agency, new schedules, and other tasks associated with running a sports franchise.

    Custom Leagues is all about playing the games, and that’s not going to completely scratch the itch for everyone who had an interest in the mode.

    I just bought this shit and have no idea what I'm doing. I will be playing the roll of the team full of rookies who gets swept but has something to build on.

    dblplay1212 the only problem with custom league is we'd have to all play with dh or without dh

    if your console is in rest mode it will download/install faster. having an app open slows the download. being in a party slows it as well.
