Re: Let's talk injuries

I'm keeping it at 50 for now, I think I'm just having some bad luck out of the gate so I'm going to give it a month of games or so before I tweak it.

I had all 5 SP injured in ootp before

I don't like tweaking too many things.. I figure there must be a reason 2k decided on 50 as "default".

Injuries at 50 would not be too bad if it really didn't occur to your pitching staff more than the whole roster. it seems every other game you will lose a pitcher.

Mine is at default and I've only lost one reliever in about 10 games played.....

If you stay away from the upper limit of the pitch count, that probably helps.

Re: Let's talk injuries

I play with injuries at 51 and control all 30 teams. I would maybe even move my injury setting higher than 51 if I didn't control all 30 teams, but when controlling all teams and then managing all the injuries, I spend more time managing rosters than playing games which is not fun.

In my All-30 Teams Franchise: Currently through April 10th (4 games played for my Phillies) there are 26 players injured at the Major League level. Of those 26 players, 12 are actually on the D/L, of those 12 players on the D/L, only 5 are pitchers. In my 3rd game, I saw my first in-game injury when Scott Podsednik pulled up lame, and had a 9-Day groin injury, I 15 day DL'd him; prior to that, Lance Nix suffered an injury, but it did not occur in-game.

IMO, I think the injury setting I have at 51, is extremely low.

Hell in Spring Training, we've already had at least 2 pitchers require Tommy John surgery (Ryan Madson, Joakim Soria), ending their 2012 seasons.

Off the top of my head, I can count the following guys about to start the season on the D/L: Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Carl Crawford, BJ Upton, Michael Pineda, Felipe Paulino, Drew Storen. These are mostly guys who I knew would start the season on the D/L (Howard), or who I scanned the transactions on espn.com and saw that they were just optioned to D/L (Storen/Paulino). Once the season begins, and guys are going full-bore and pitchers are seeing their normal workload, the amount of injuries will only increase.

Don't want to be crass, but I think complaining about the amount of injuries and then dropping the slider makes injuries pretty much worthless.

You must have the pc version, 50 on the consoles is too high. At 50 every one of my starters are on the DL, as well as a RP - not realistic at all. I'm not spending all my gaming time playing will AAA players.

Nope. Play on 360.

6 Weeks in, and now I have two guys with 30+ day injuries. I have had 3 guys with minor 7 or 8 day injuries but they healed quickly.

The only thing I HATE in this game is that when a guy get's put on the DL, the game just does it automatically without asking you first.. And then once he's on the DL you cant move him to AAA or shift him around.. or even release or trade him! What the heck... thats so annoying.. It just puts guys on the DL and locks them in place automatically.

Does anybody know a way to promote/demote a guy once he's on the DL??

Whats worse is CPU teams don't replace guys that go on the DL on their teams. So when one guy gets hurt and goes to the 15 Day DL the computer then has 24 healthy guys and 1 DL guy at the MLB level... and they just play on with 24!! It's almost as if the CPU doesn't know well enough or is incapable of replacing a hurt guy on the DL to have 25 healthy guys..

Check out your franchise.. you'll see what I mean, several teams will be operating with 23 or 24 guys.

The DL is broken in this game.
I was not aware that the CPU AI doesn't manage their injuries, but I play w/ all-30 team control. I will opt to D/L a player if the injury is 9 days or longer.
