MLB 11 The Show News Post


While I do not have a time frame for the next title update, I figured the franchise guys would want to know what has been changed in franchise mode. The list below is what has been checked into the game so far.

This list does not include any other changes and bug fixes fyi.
  • Cause players with low overall to retire sooner.
  • Fixed a bug causing players to not store their initial attribute levels at the start of each season, causing progression in the offseason to appear much larger than it was since it was being calculated to the start of 2011, regardless of the current season.
  • Decisions on contract options need to be made sooner since the exclusive negotiation period was shortened from 15 to 5 days.
  • Only players with 6+ years of service time should be flagged as type A or type B free agents.
  • Players were progressing to their potential at age 26 instead of 30.
  • 99 ovr players were not correctly normalizing to 1.0f.
  • Adjusted salary curve and fixed issues with salaries in short seasons.
  • Don't backload contracts that are less than $5M per year or less than 4 years.
  • Adjusted how potentials are assigned to generated players.
  • More logic to see if a contract should be tendered to a player before allowing him to become a free agent. Also, more accurate calculation for salary reserved for minor league players under the team's control.
  • Fixed some bugs with the popup message in multi-user franchise mode when minor league teams secure a bye in the playoffs.
  • Make sure any player who is decent (75 ovr, 75 potential) are being offered arbitration. Also, make sure free agents were offered arbitration by the CPU and teams didn't receive compensation picks for players to whom they didn't offer arbitration.
  • Make sure that contract offers and arbitration offers aren't cleared when a player becomes a free agent at the end of the 5 day exclusive negotiation period.
  • Need more 1 year contracts for arbitration eligible players.
  • Make the best available player the most valuable if the team is missing minor leaguers.
  • Set team strategies for the user teams as well.
  • All minor leaguers should have 1 year contracts by default.
  • Treat CPU controlled user teams as CPU teams for purposes of reducing trades during the season.

I have a question that always seems to come up first so I may as well ask. Will this take into effect on franchises that have already started? Or will we have to start a new one?

The reason I ask is because once the full minors rosters come out, I am immediately starting a franchise. If this patch won't be applied to already started franchises than I may have to hold off on starting one.

I just quickly skimmed the list... Will these changes seemingly fix the 2013 (2014) bug issue?
 
# 9 Clarke_311 @ 03/29/11 09:58 PM
Sounds great, thanks a lot!!!
 
# 10 BoSoxPujols @ 03/29/11 10:00 PM
Rip. Read the list.
 
# 11 tabarnes19 @ 03/29/11 10:04 PM
With all minor leaguers having one year contracts, will that be done through a roster update?
 
# 12 NDAlum @ 03/29/11 10:04 PM
I will ask the obligatory "Will we have to restart our franchise?"!

I am not intimately familiar with the bug itself and what causes it (or what would fix it), hence, why I asked for clarification.
 
# 14 BoSoxPujols @ 03/29/11 10:14 PM
...Yes..It should fix the issue.....
 
# 15 cas850 @ 03/29/11 10:24 PM
i'm just gonna keep playing my current franchise. i hope we don't have to restart, but if we do, oh well. nothing i can do about it anyways.

I thought I was finally going to be the first to ask this on a thread

Anyway, great job Russel and co. at SCEA. hope the patch is out soon!

Im sorta in your boat. Im starting as soon as the Full Minor rosters come out. Im so anxious about those that I don't know if I can wait any longer.

But i dont know the answer, but if i had to guess, I would think that you would have to re-start your franchise
