I thought he said when one fills up another tourney opens with the same requirements to replace the recently filled one....

This may not be exactly what you were thinking about, but they're related and need to be considered before tournaments are rolled out...
Yeah I mean optimally I would like to have the ability to build lineup for each tournament "type" and save that off to be entered

All sounds great. Looking forward to it.

Especially the card collecting missions. As someone who always sells my cards it's been interesting to say the least buying up lower ranked uncommon heroes.

I am totally in for if and when you have a tournaments/missions for players that have a food or beverage type in their name....

Pretzel Pezzullo. He's in the bullpen...
Daryl Strawberry. Done.
Jim Rice. Hello.
Zack Wheat. He'll rise to the occasion...
Pepper Martin might spice things up....

I don't even want to know what a Harry Chiti is but he can catch if needed.

The all Fowl Poles team... Goose Gossage, Ducky Medwick, Turkey Stearnes, Dennis Dove, Hawk Taylor, Chicken Wolf (Is he is Chicken or a Wolf?)...

The Fish Out Of Water team... Mike & Dizzy Trout, Tim Salmon, Catfish Hunter, George Haddock, Marlin Stuart, Bobby Sturgeon, Kevin Bass, Lip Pike, Ralph Gar(r)

The BreakFast Blends.... Jack Coffey... Would you like some George Creamer with that? Sugar Cane? Nah, I like my Joe Black...

OMG

This needs to be a thing devs

he's the first player to be traded for himself.....


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Chiti

"On April 25, 1962—before he even played a game for the Indians—Chiti was acquired by the expansion New York Mets for a player to be named later. However, he was sent back to the Indians on June 15, 1962 after 15 games and a .195 batting average.[3] Since Chiti was the "player to be named later", he thus became the first player ever traded for himself. "

2) Are player card stats generated in tournaments thrown away once each tournament has finished, or are they recorded and visible from their player card profile (similar to normal career batting/pitching/fielding stats that show now)?

3) Can player cards involved in one or more active tournaments be quicksold or auctioned while the tournament is going on? Do these cards in your inventory appear locked or have a visual indicator to let you know they are playing in tournament(s) so you don't inadvertently remove them from a tournament team?
1) Same as your regular team.
2) Yes, stats are not tracked and hence will be gone after the tournament is done.
3) They can be sold, so you need to be careful.

Tournaments:

1. If you are competing in a tournament for a special card, will you know who that card is and their ratings prior to the tournament?

2. Is there any option for the winner of a tournament to get to "choose" a card such as they pick whether they want an IF, OF, or P (whatever they feel is their weak position) not knowing what it will be?

3. If I have one perfect Pedro on my team, is it possible for him to be on all three of my tournament rosters at once or is each player only eligible to pay in 1 tournament at a time?

Collections:

1. You said that the cards to complete a collection are "locked" but you can sell the card you get.....If I sold the card I got as a reward, would the cards it took get that "exclusive" card still remain locked? I assume yes.

2. On the mission tab will it tell me the exact players (names and overall ratings) that I am missing to complete the set? For example if there is some kind of reward for collecting all the MLB LIVE players I would like to know who I am missing. I currently need 2 more players, but have absolutely no clue who they are. I'm just randomly searching all 75+ pages of MLB LIVE Cards on AH each day at this rate. LOL

Thank you very much for the update. I know a lot of us really appreciate it! Can't wait for the next few weeks/months when these things become a reality.
1) You will know the title and the value, but not specific ratings.
2) No.
3) All three.

1) Yes.
2) Yes, you will see who is missing, the card title is shown.

We will liekly save the last roster for each tournament type, so once you have set it up for the first time, future tournaments of the same type will use that roster as the default when it starts.

Yeah that is totally acceptable from a v1 stand point, but I realllllly hope that there will be some added functionality for building rosters that aren't active at the moment. The way I have it in my head is like Magic The Gathering Online was where you could build a deck and save it, and then as part of the tournament or game start you could select a "deck" in this team select a squad.

I would even be ok with having the ability to export the teams as like csv/json and have the ability to import them. That way you could potentially have an api that other developers like myself could tap into to create deck builders etc.

None the less excited to play in some tourneys as my current PT team is on auto pilot, the only way the team gets better is if I pull a great card from a pack at this point.

Will tournaments be played on a neutral field? Otherwise, one sided teams have a huge advantage such as in 2 out of 3 if they get the home field advantage. I have not seen this posted, sorry if I missed it in my re-read.

I was thinking, you know how we have the option to save a custom lineup/pitching staff?

Maybe an option like that would help?

Hmmm. We have not decided this yet... but I personally would prefer to use the proper home park instead of a neutral one.

Yes, eventually we'll make this very user friendly. We'll see how it goes

I'd like to see some additional formats at some point.

Limited - You open say, 8 regular packs and 2 gold packs and make a team from that. You don't keep the cards.

Draft - You and say, 7 other players draft from a pool of players. You don't keep the cards.

I would even be for a couple formats that I have seen in other card games like

Sealed Tournament: Come to the tourney with [X] packs open pack choose player pass pack to next player. (Keep cards)

Sealed Tournament: Come with [X] packs build entire team from those packs(Keep cards)

I also like your idea of draft, but based on my experience with online leagues understand that this will take a good amount of time...maybe after the mobile app gets developed or something...

I could see it working either way (or both ways). The possibilities to draw from other games like Magic, Hearthstone, poker and fantasy sports are rich.

I asked in a new thread and they sent me here. It says that the tournaments will be ready in April. We are running out of April, any news?

Thanks...

Markus, I have some suggestions regarding using what parks in tournaments:

1) If you are using the "proper" home park in a 3 game series the team that gets home field advantage in the final game could be determined by run differential (or some other comparable metric) from the first two games which I presume would be home and away.

2) For some tournaments they could be played in actual stadiums both current and historical. For instance, there could be a tournament that takes place in Ebbets Field. This would put all of the teams on a "level playing field" so to speak, and would give owners strategic opportunities to build rosters from their card collections that would be optimized for the ballpark being used in that tournament. Plus, it would be cool to have a chance to play in famous stadiums.

Limited draft- or sealed-style tournaments is such an outstanding idea. I can imagine that it would be hard to do a synchronous 8 person draft, but doing an asynchronous sealed format where you just open 8-10 packs or something and build your team? Amazing.

The best option for limited formats in the long run imo is to go for something like a Hearthstone arena-style draft, since there is much more player agency in making the choices and a ton of the casual market is already familiar with that format. But that is probably an OOTP21 feature, given the development timescale.
