The OTBA has two openings

OOTP Version: 17
Game Needed: Required

# of Teams: 20
Export Deadlines Days And Times: Regular Season - Sun-Tu-Th @ 9 p.m.Central. Postseason - Varies. Offseason - Sun-M-Tu-W-Th 9 p.m. Central.

Special Rules & Settings: Coaching/scouting turned off. Ratings 1-10 scale. Ratings displayed relative to the OTBA. Trading of draft picks allowed. Free agent compensation is in play but we have customized it to our liking (it's not turned on in the game and we use our own parameters/do it manually). We also have some custom rules about vesting and team option years on contracts (we allow them, but following certain guidelines).
Currently available Teams: Washington, Akron
About this league: This league was formed in early 2005 on OOTP 6 and has been going strong ever since. We've been through many version changes, expansions, contractions, etc. but have kept the same overall vibe and many of the same owners have been around since the beginning or almost that long.

It is called the Off Topic Baseball Association because it originally formed among a group of people who frequented the Off Topic part of the OOTP forums back then. In recent years it has come to include others from around the OOTP community, but we have kept the same mentality of being a forum-based league. This means that I rarely send out emails, and owners rarely use instant messengers. Most all communications happen on the forums so you will need to be comfortable checking forums daily and interacting with others in a forum environment.

If you have any questions or if you think this league sounds like a fit for you, PM or email me!

Both vacancies have been filled, although we may have one coming up. So if you're still interested and would like to be put at the very front of the waiting list, give me a shout!

Bumping this thread since we just had a team open up. We are just getting into to the 2072/3 off-season so now would be a great time to jump in!

Drop me a line if you're interested.

Sioux Falls has been claimed, but Richmond has been unresponsive for some time now, so drop me a line if you'd like to take them over.

The Woodlands Strykers are now available. We are in the 2073 post-season - Woodlands isn't involved, but it'd be a good time to jump in so you can get in on the entire off-season. Get in touch with me if you're interested!

Aw, jeez, I completely didn't see this. I just sent you a PM.

In the meantime, the long-standing owner of the Akron Dandies has announced that he will be stepping down at the end of the current season, so they will be open in the near future.

Bumping this thread, we have reached the end of the 2074 season so Akron is now officially open. Also our Toronto owner hasn't exported in forever so I'm going to consider them open as well.

Bumping this - we have two openings now, both teams made the playoffs so you can jump right in and not necessarily have to sweat a rebuild!

We are still on 17 but discussing upgrading to OOTP18 although we have no clear time frame yet. We generally wind up upgrading in June/July.
