Well it's tricky but we take early season success and combine it with historical data, our Trevor Story is lower

I would say right now 5-6 people but overall probably 20-25 since this is based on last year as well

# 6 rkocjay @ 04/15/16 06:46 AM

heres to hoping lol
 
# 8 Gosens6 @ 04/15/16 08:27 AM
I'm aiming for early next week. A lot of guys let their hope take over for rationale.

80% done, and that's if they work on these over the weekend. If not.. mid next week.

That was 2 day ago, I'm sure they're a little further but I agree I wouldn't count on it this weekend, the best way is to always look at worst case

He already said on Twitter they won't be before the Q&A
 
# 11 Flaxseed Oil @ 04/15/16 09:05 AM
I really hope it comes out this weekend. I have done a couple of "test" franchises to get my settings right and now I am ready to rock and roll with a real one.
 
# 12 Kennedy2390 @ 04/15/16 09:14 AM
Wouldnt it make more sense to have a Q&A after something is released... Kind of missing the point... We dont even know anything about these rosters pretty sure the only Q people have at this point is the one that will get us banned.

If I had to guess its gonna be to ask about specific players and their ratings. Things to that nature.
 
# 15 Kennedy2390 @ 04/15/16 09:24 AM
Forgive me... But from an outside simple perspective wouldnt it make sense to save the questions and the small things for later and give these OSFM developers all the time to work on the rosters to get them in our hands? Seems like running around doing interviews and playing grab a$$ with one another is only going to delay this release further...

It's one guy. And it's not like he is doing every single thing.
 
# 17 Kennedy2390 @ 04/15/16 09:31 AM
Just saying one guy out of 3 is kind of a big deal... Def delays the process, can we save the promo for after the release? We have all been waiting very anxiously for these to be able to get the most of our $65 purchase. You would think twitter promo would come second. Welp thats the world we live in now..
 
# 18 JWDixon120 @ 04/15/16 09:36 AM
Is the braves farm system dominant like in real life?

What makes you think it's only 3? There are plenty of people who help with each team. Him doing this won't change the release timing at all.
 
# 20 PPerfect_CJ @ 04/15/16 09:37 AM
Seems like some people actually believe that the team should be spending every waking hour of every day working on a video game baseball roster. Wow. I want the roster too, but GEEZ. Lol!
