Whats the deal with default MLB fictiinal player leagues

Someone please tell me why my fictional player league with mlb defaults is so goofy. The defaults include the following:

no waiver wire
no rule 5 draft
no minor league free agency
Secondary 40 man roster is disabled
DFA limit is not set
DL is set at 10 days



This is just what I see so far. On another note, if someone has worked out all of the discrepancies, can someone post all of the changes i need to make to the default settings to make it the same as current MLB rules? The default does correctly set the international signing hard cap at $5M, but the other stuff seems a bit lost.

Also, where do i even find the settings for waiver wires and the rule 5 draft? I need to change them, but haven't located them yet.

EDIT: Located where all of the various settings are.

I think the correct solution to change these settings to be the same as MLB is the following:

waiver wire equals 3 days
rule 5 draft activated
minor league free agency after 6 years??
Secondary 40 man roster set at 40
DFA limit set to 10 days
DL set to 15 days.

Please respond to confirm that these adjustments to the default MLB fictional player settings will make the game equal to current MLB rules.

Oh, and why is the manager of the year award button always grayed out. I like that award, but it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks,

There is no default fictional MLB league. Make sure you have minor league affiliates

Of course there is. Everyone who has ever played poop knows this. You select a custom. League and select the MLB League settings to set up your league. Obviously, it doesn't call it a *default MLB fictional player league", but many many people play it this way rather than using historical players.

Thanks for the reply though.

Yeah, I posted something similar the other day. I think you're mostly right on your settings, but DFA is 7 days and DL is now 10 days starting this season.

I can honestly say i've never used that feature which is pretty incredible that i've missed it because i definitely would have used it. I figured i'd double check before posting my own snappy remark

some settings may be different that way, still

I think the totals are significantly different, as one example (real vs fictional league game creation) .. and someone noted the disabled length or whatever is10 instead of 15 (if off, point remains the same). probably other differences, too... like ai eval etc...significant stuff.

so, you likely need some screen shots... or if after loading a real world league you remove it, the game settings should remain the same, i'd assume - 1 less thing to comb over and make sure it's the same. then add a new fictional league - you'll have to adjust rules, options, stats ai etc, if they deviate.

Didn't mean to come off snappy. My apologies.
