When did this become such an event?
 
# 2 Ghost Of The Year @ 04/16/16 10:24 PM
This should be a 3 hour event, maybe that'll keep enough people away from DL'ing it at the same time & overloading the server.

OS does seem to be leaning on Twitch more and more as a promotional platform in order to create "events." But they're hardly the only ones doing this.

I can only imagine the rage this announcement will invoke in some people waiting for the OSFM rosters--knowing that the rosters are actually done, yet they have to wait another hour. Some folks are going to lose it.

EDIT: Case in point, this thread already has all 4 of the ratings as 1-star ratings.

I've never seen OS operate like this before. Seems like it's more about grabbing attention or clicks or something, over the community.

Well they do have to pay the bills I doubt server costs are getting any cheaper or that our meager $20 one-time "blue name" donations are keeping them afloat.

Honestly, I get more irritated by the ads that put my internet browser in a spin cycle than any of these new promotional strategies.

But this is probably a topic better for another thread and another day...

I do agree. I don't recall there ever being this much promotion for the rosters. They are great and all, but I am surprised they are being "showcased" before release. I've been and always will be respectful and grateful to the creators, but maybe they should've been released at the same time as this stream or soon as they were done. That's how it has always been as Jr. has mentioned. Either way, I'll be catching the stream at 5 tomorrow, Mill has truly gained a fan in me with his awesome streaming.

So if you owned your own website, you wouldn't want to do whatever you could to generate traffic to your site?

It's smart business. People are all over twitch and twitter. This isn't hurting anyone. It's kind of fun and it generates new traffic to this site

This is gonna get ugly.

These guys can't win by giving an ETA. They can't win by giving an exact release time.
OSFM is Operation Sports Full Minors. It's only natural they would showcase it.

Kinda like being mad at SDS for doing a stream a week before the Show's release date.
[WhinyVoice]They have the game ready early? They should release it before the announced date,[/WhinyVoice]

No one should be surprised next year when no news is given & it's announced OSFM has been in the vault the last 4 hours, DL it if you want. Hell, no one should be surprised if OSFM goes away completely the way some OS members carry on.

Think you guys missed the whole point of anything anyone said. No one (that posted) is mad at all lol. Simply there has never been this much media used for these rosters and just surprised there is this year. It's very good for the site and I don't mind, just expressing my opinion on why some wpuldbe upset and that does not include me one bit. If you've seen any of my previous posts or knew me at all on this site, you wouldn't mistake my post. Anyone bashing that idea? Probably but no one Is bashing it that has posted and how it could come off that way is beyond me. FWIW, I cannot play until late tonight, so I'll be one of the first on the stream tonight!
 
# 14 Ghost Of The Year @ 04/17/16 08:29 AM
I sure didn't mean to imply anyone in this thread had posted anger at OSFM for doing a stream an hour early before release. I hope it didn't come off that way. I was only really going down the trail Jr. establshed with it seeming that OS was more about grabbing attention, over the community. But from what I've seen over the last couple years, you know the bad apples are out & about this time of year

I see lol. I just wanted to make sure I was clear in my point. Hopefully the stream goes well and at 6 the pitchforks are put away and the flames extinguished!

Well....do you think I, Ridin' or Willard finish up the last player and hit...upload?
Mill is using the 99.3 completed version in his stream.

I have one issue with what some of you are alluding to:

How many of you making mention of this as an "event" have 'Come watch my Twitch' in your signatures, or 'Come follow my dynasty thread'?

The hour I will have the roster will be last minute testing for the OSFM team. The 6 PM time was set BEFORE anyone knew this stream would exist.

Also - OS isn't operating any differently. It's about the OS community giving great feedback and having fun, and if you've watched any of the streams I've done on the channel that is EXACTLY what is happening.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HH OS, DON'T BE SOUR. CLAP YOUR HANDS, AND FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLL THE POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRR!!!

IT'S A OSFM DAY, YES IT IS!
