MLB 13 The Show - The Player Ratings Algorithm Has Changed, 17 Players Rated 99


There will be a post with images about this later, but I figured a little teaser never hurt anyone.

If you didn't know, we changed the way we rate players and every position weigh different attributes differently. Before the change the game had 44 players rated 99 or higher. After the change there are 17, here is a little taste.

In no particular order.
  • T.Tulowitzki 99
  • A.Pujols 99
  • R.Braun 99
  • J.Hamilton 99
  • M.Cabrera 99
  • C.Kimbrel 99
  • C.Kershaw 99
  • A.Chapman 99
  • S.Strasburg 99
  • F.Hernandez 99
  • J.Verlander 99
  • B.Posey 99
  • M.Kemp 99
  • R.Cano 99
  • A.McCutchen 99
  • M.Trout 99
  • C.Gonzalez 99
J.Votto just missed the cut at a 98.

Second Baseman Top 5
  • Robinson Cano 99
  • Dustin Pedroia 98
  • Ian Kinsler 95
  • Brandon Phillips 93
  • Jose Altuve 90

Re: How we've changed the player ratings algorithm

Hey Russ, is it possible for you to post how the positions are weighted as well, or is that top secret stuff?

Edit:

Hopefully Felix's potential matches his overall this year, last year he was only an A- and regressed heavily the first couple of seasons...

Re: How we've changed the player ratings algorithm

Also, if you could Russell, could you explain the correlation between player rating & potential ?

For example, a created minor leaguer with an A potential if developed entirely will have a rating b/t 90-99, B potential 80-89 etc etc.

Re: How we've changed the player ratings algorithm

This is more for the CD guys who may be able to talk about more now, unless Russell wants to answer. With the old ratings, pitchers generally had much higher overalls than position players once you got past the top players. I think this is the main cause for the CPU frequently carrying 15 pitchers and 10 position players. Is this something that was addressed by the new ratings system?

Lol it probably is, I'm just trying to wrap my head around Altuve being a 90 when he hits for an empty average and doesn't field particularly well...

Phillips a 93 makes sense

Top secret but it's common sense i.e. fielding attributes are weighted less for 1st baseman then they are for CF etc...........

A player will try and reach his potential overall rating by his prime. Sometimes they make it sometimes they don't. It depends on a few factors.
