I am not the only one either... Rogers Hornsby agreed with me. "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring." Well, now he would have Perfect Team to fill the void. Too late for him, but not for the rest of us.

This was merely me stating they would not attract new customers in the offseason, out of view out of mind and all that, the heroin addicts that are the blood of their operation won't be phased obviously.

The ratio of regular / bronze / silver / gold cards in the 6 starter packs is pre-determined, so everyone starts off with a similar talent base.

A probabilistically similar talent base, or an actually similar one?

By which I mean, are the card-quality distributions for the starter packs weighted but random so that every player has the same chances for different qualities of cards? Or are the numbers of each type of card fixed for starter packs, which means that every player has exactly the same number of certain kinds of cards?

Since you are now aiming for November 1 for the start of the Perfect Team Public Beta, will you make an announcement at what time the beta will start?

Question - Will you need to submit your team at the start of each new season or will your team from the previous week be automatically submitted in case you do not have time to update or make changes between seasons.

There is a settings screen where you set control of rosters, lineups, etc. to yourself. Once you do that, it will use your last submission including from one season to the next.

so how does joining a league occur, is it automatic or will it be a manual "find a league" that will allow us time to add our friends so we can be linked up in a league

From what i've gathered - at first, you'd be in the entry league. i believe it goes Monday to Monday. So if you joined on Thursday, you'd be moved to rookie league (or whatever next level will be) the upcoming Monday. After that, i think it will depend on how you do in that league whether or not you get moved up or not.

friends in the same league? i read somewhere (can't recall where) you can mark other managers as "friends" and the next time leagues are shuffled (7 days i think for a season) the AI would try to link friends into the same league. But i'm pretty vague on how that works to be honest.

Positions and rarity are set for the initial 6 packs. So you are guaranteed so many iron, bronze, silver, gold etc. You are also guaranteed a guy at every position and some backups. The difference between teams at the beginning will stem from how those rarities end up assigned to positions (i.e. if I get a gold SP, you may not get one, but you'll get a gold 1B)

A full simulated season lasts from Monday through Sunday. When you join PT on a Thursday, you will remain in the Entry Pool until Monday morning, which is when you will be promoted to the Rookie Leagues for the next season.

Yes, that's how it will work eventually. The beta will not have that feature yet, though.

If all goes well then the public beta will last about 3-4 weeks. During that time we will finish the following features / screens:
- Manager lists & friend feature (so you can check out other manager's profiles & trophy case, even if he is not in your own league)
- Perfect Team Universe screen. That will give an overview of the whole system and let's you see info (standings & league leaders) of different leagues (See the mockup below)
- Leagues named after famous baseball players (instead of the current format which uses greek letters)
- Playing Challenge Mode will award users PT player card packs on occasion when unlocking achievements
- PT Universe record book (eg. most wins in a season, most HRs both team & individual player etc.)
- Unlock the option to purchase Perfect Points

I'm going with November 2nd as this is the date most RECENTLY confirmed by Marcus.


Lets hope that's the last "push back".

In anticipation of tomorrow's release, are there certain things that must be done first? Obviously, opening the cards and setting your lineups and pitching staff. Are there any options that we will be locked out of once we do the first submit? Can team names, uniforms, stadium all be tweaked at any time?

You'll need to have a Challenge Mode account. Then to download the patch, of course.

After the initial setup, where you get your starter packs and set your team name/logos/roster/lineups etc. your team will get placed in a entry league, and there might be a bit of a time lapse where nothing happens then while the entry league is filling up.

I believe team names, uniforms, stadium can all be tweaked for up to 30 days after the start of a season, but not beyond that.

Uniforms etc. can be tweaked all the time. The ballpark not, it can only be customized while in the Entry Pool or prior / after each regular season.
