Exclamation OOTP 20 & PT 20 launch plan!

OK, so here is how we will launch the OOTP 20 beta & the final release next week.

(Note: All of this does NOT apply to OOTP 19 Perfect Team, that will continue to run as usual. And, as mentioned several times before, absolutely nothing from OOTP 19 PT will move over to OOTP 20, except for your login info.)

IMPORTANT: Your current OOTP 18 / 19 Challenge Mode / Perfect Team 19 account will also work in OOTP 20! You do NOT need to create a new account, use the same login in OOTP 20!

Monday, March 18
On Monday morning US time, those who pre-ordered the eSellerate version will receive an email containing download links once the public OOTP 20 beta is available, and we will also post the download links on the forums, so you can still pre-order and access the beta after March 18.

You will be able to create an account (if you do not have one already) and team, however, this is just for the beta! You will NOT be able to buy PP and absolutely everything (PP, cards, team) will be reset on Friday for the official launch, except your login info.

Wednesday, March 20
We will release a public beta OOTP 20 patch which fixes reported problems of the past 2 days.

Friday, March 22 - Official Launch Day
At around 2-3 AM ET (essentially in the middle of the night) we will reset all PT20 teams and shut down simulation servers. Your login info will remain the same, so no need to create a new account after the reset. At around 10 AM ET, the system will be reopened and you can set up your brand new team again, open your starter packs (plus the extra gold pack you get) etc. PP purchase will be available at that time, too. However, simulations will NOT start yet, we don't want Steam & Origin users to be at an disadvantage.

On 1 PM ET the game will officially launch worldwide, on Steam, Origin (NOT for Access Premiere subscribers, EA has scheduled that launch for April 9 ), Mac AppStore and for the webstore customers, all at a 10% launch discount (same as pre-order discount). Download links for the final version will be emailed to pre-order customers. At that time, all users that now have the game can log in or create their accounts and start their teams, load up on PP if needed etc.

On 2 PM ET the first Entry Pool leagues get created and simulations start either exactly at that time or half an hour later.

Monday, March 25 - First promotion round
At the usual time (morning ET) we will start the first PT20 promotion round. This time, we will populate the first three levels (Iron, Bronze Silver) based on team winning % compiled in the entry pool. Teams with less than 30 games in the Entry Pool will automatically start at the Iron level. Simulations will begin 10 AM ET, as usual.

In the evening (9 PM ET) we will have the first live Twitch show where we reveal new (& absolutely awesome) PT20 content, here's the link to our channel: https://www.twitch.tv/OOTPDevelopments/

Friday, March 29
On Friday (1 PM ET) the 10% launch week discount will end. Later during the day, the special offer of a bonus Gold Pack for a PT20 account ends as well.

Monday, April 8
This is the day the 2019 MLB Live cards will receive their first rating update. Probably not many cards will change (small sample size after all), but we'll see.

Okay, that's it! Questions?

Cheers,
Markus

Do you have a timeline/date planned for 100% accurate starting active rosters? I generally put off starting a new save until they're in.

All I read was Perfect Team this and Perfect Team that.

Can't wait, though. OOTPB always makes a nice birthday gift.

Since the AI is in charge here and we cannot force it to do everything 100% as managers do in real life, the rosters are never 100% accurate. So I suggest not wasting any time and starting right away. That being said, we will update the default rosters as part of the patches in the first few weeks after release to fix any errors.

This schedule almost puts EA's Anthem release plan to shame!

I kid, I kid.

For the free gold pack, do we just need to purchase during the first week and log in once?
Or do you actually have to start your PT and enter the entry league?

I ask because I will purchase on Steam during the first week but I will hold off entering PT for a few weeks.
The first few weeks will have rapid promotions to fill out the ranks like PT 2019 and with a dew dice rolls you can find yourself in the upper leagues with an underpowered team among those who throw real money into the game.


Thank you

You do have to start your team for the free gold pack, I recall.
