$25.00 is a bargain yeah!

I would love to get into a league but can't find one. I got into BBCF and joined 2 leagues thanks to OS'ers but can't find an OOTP league. Anybody have any openings?

I am thinking of starting a leauge if I can generate enough interest. I have been in a few online leagues before but I want to run one.

Id like to do a 2008 MLB starting roster league that goes from opening day 2008 to whenever.

It would have to be a full 32 team league to keep the fidelity of the simulation high.

If anyone is interested, let me know. I'll be setting up a frontend for the league on one of my domains. I have like 500 . Hopefully one of them is a good name for a leauge.

We'd love to have you in the BLB Matt, but openings are few and far between.

If you guys need any advice on running a league, let me know. I've been running the BLB for 5+ seasons now.

I'm struggling to grasp the scope of this game.

I've played strat-o-matic for 15 years and it is my favorite hobby. However, that is based on previous year stats only with nothing else really coming into play.

Is there a way I can read up on how the in-game engine works? I'm not sure if I'd be frustrated not knowing why Matt Holliday is 0 for his last 20 (which of course happens in R/L and in strat) but I'm wary that not knowing if his ratings are correct would irritate me.

In general, good god it seems like an in-depth game and am interested, but am unsure of the best way to research it.

Any specific way you all would suggest I research this game?

Join the forums: http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/board/ and ask away. The creator of the game roams the forums and there are people there who have been on board since Day one of OOTP. There are a lot of faqs and guides to help get you started. It does take a bit to get started but once you start setting up your own leagues and playing around with things it gets really good really fast. If you like Strat-o-matic you will love OOTP.

Suspensions & Fights: The game now includes bench-clearing brawls and fights, which may lead to suspensions. Optional drug-related suspensions are also included.

This is what I am talking about!!! Why can't they put a game like this for the next-gen consoles?!?!?!? SCEA are you out there?

Because MLB and the players union would NEVER consent to something like that (especially the drug-related part). OOTP isn't licensed by anybody, all the rosters, uniforms, logos and such are done by the community. They (well, Markus ) have free will to put whatever they want in their game (as long as it's not conflicting with a license of course).

The best sports game period for $25? Stupid not to.

Guys, I have a quick question:

What's the advantage to ordering the CD version for an extra $10.00?

Can you burn the DL version on to a disc or is it encoded to prevent copying?

If your DL version gets uninstalled for some unforseen reason, are you able to DL it again for no additional charge...or its it worth it to get the CD as a backup?

I know, it's a noob two-fer...

New to OOTP and not very PC-savvy...

Thanx!

As far as I know, there is no advantage.

You have two licenses when you buy the game. If something happens, just redownload it. And if you have a licensing problemyou just contact the licensing people and they hook you up. I've dealth with them once when I totally lost my license # and I was up and running in 5 minutes all via email. Really it's painless.
