Suggestion

When you enter a tournament and import your players in, can their strategies also be imported? Like base running, stealing, etc. I do a lot of tweaking during PT to the hitters.

I actually do not do much tweaking to the pitchers, but if I have Brock or Rickey I want them to be aggressive on the base paths.

I am surprised that that rating is not automatically raised for the speedsters or for the higher rated power hitters DO NOT PH!

Just a though.

You can always withdraw. Open the box for the description of it and the withdraw button is in the lower left corner.

Can we perhaps balance more toward the smaller tournaments, then?


The big 128-team jobs seem to expire without ever filling up.



They just don't seem to be worth playing, in risk [6 days until start time !!?wtf?!!?]-reward [1st round washout] terms.


Additionally, their graphics load time every round are omg just shoot me.

What does modified double elimination mean?

I joined a q-diamond dblel-t32-id20. Eliminated in the QF with 1 loss. Doesn't seem logical to call it a double elimination. This is essentially a RR tournament with single elimination without RR. 3 rounds of double elimination then single elimination. Why not call it double elimination for 3 rounds then single elimination. If this is intended it should be worded differently or a link to a tournament rules page.

It's 2 rounds of double-elimination, then drops into a regular elimination bracket. Same way it's handled in the regular game.

Then this is not a double elimination tournament. I'm not certain what this would be called, but double elimination should mean double elimination, otherwise it is something else. The tournament descriptions need to be reworked as what is currently displayed is EXTREMELY unclear and confusing.

As a fan of college baseball, I was hoping for something that looked more like the NCAA playoffs.

Double elimination implies that two losses are required to be eliminated. This needs to be explained better to allow players to set appropriate expectations and not be frustrated when the outcome does not match their expectations and we get bounced after a single loss.

Is there a way to see all tournaments you participated in rather than 6 on the main page?

Thank you all for the explanations. However, to help all players manage expectations appropriately, please explain this in game. It is great that we are consistent with the terminology, but this "we" excludes many of us who have been ignorant.

agreed. it's easy to forget (myself anyway) that just because I know due to my own relative unique situation, that others dont know what was meant :-)

Yeah, we've added a little extra to the detailed tournament description in-game with the latest update.

Awesome! Thank you!

And to clarify (especially since it was mentioned that user response is causing a move away from this setting), there is nothing inherently wrong with Modified Double Elimination. It was simply that I was expecting something very different from what I got. Had my expectations been more aligned with this tournament, I would have had no issues with any of this whatsoever. Sorry if I came across as too critical of either tournaments or of Modified Double Elimination.

This above. In no way was there an explanation for the "modified" part, so it invariably ended up throwing people (me included) well off. That is the main problem here.

A few points of feedback.

- I'm really enjoying this.

- There should be daily/weekly tournaments for bronze.

- Focus should be on larger daily/weekly/monthly tournaments.

- If queues are filling up really quickly, you should make the # of players larger. The small bronze queues are filling up too quickly, make those 8s into 16s and those 16s into 32s.

- There should be a way to blank slate your team to start from scratch. I've currently got a mess of default teams that aren't what I want and the tournaments go off before I can fix the team!

- On that note, there should be a way to create a team outside of the pressure of a queue or scheduled start. Let us select Tournament > Bronze or lower and then have an environment similar to the tournament roster to create our team and save to file.

- Cap tournaments should be the "premiere" tournaments because the range of strategy is so wide.

The big Sunday Bronze tournament with 128 players may not have paid out prizes. I got 3rd/4th and never got my gold packs.

All in all I think you've done a pretty fantastic job for the first iteration of this. Cheers.
