Live feature

Is it possible to being a franchise with live feature as of today that would begin in the 2019 offseason?

I just posted in the other topic about this —

Live Start is a feature that they just fixed, but (at least for me) the Live Start is still starting at the start of the playoffs and not at the end, unfortunately. I’d really like to start one as of today, for obvious reasons (avatar )

Congats on the WS! I'd like the option of starting in offseason as well, but if the playoffs are the cutoff, I can live with that.

In the thread I created about this someone stated that live start says it only covers the regular season only. I haven't been able to go into the game but sept 30th seems to be the best we will get.

Honestly I feel live start should at least go through the playoffs so we at least have an accurate champion and stats. I don't mind do the awards and free agency set up myself.

Well here's what I did:

  • Create a live start at the start of the playoffs
  • Simmed series one at a time
  • If the Nats lost, I task killed the application and rebooted and tried again. Task killing prevents the progress from being saved.
I managed to sim their actual path through the playoffs. Here's how many "sim tries" it took to accomplish this:

  • Brewers: 4 (!)
  • Dodgers: 2
  • Cards: 1
  • Astros: 3, and it was a 7 game series when the Nats won.
Kind of painful, but now I can start an alternate sim universe and the Nationals will have that 2019 Champion icon.

Now... time to pick a team to GM.

That's interesting! One quick question, with the live feature, I'm assuming rosters are current through end of season, with all the trades and contract extensions?

As best I can tell, yes.



I picked the Rangers -- wanted to take a team that hasn't won a World Series yet.

Sorry, I donít follow.

Also, not all of the contracts from this year are in the Live Start. Xander Bogaerts just hit free agency.

This might not help much, but experience tells me that personal=personnel.
What exactly about personnel only mgom27 can say.

Can you not enter commissioner mode and edit?

Yes - I managed to do this (I usually play online leagues). I'm not sure if I'm missing any other key contracts.

Ah. No, none of the personnel changes are reflected, unfortunately.

And it sucks that you've got to move all the traded minor leaguers and they all lose a year of development

Other than the big MLB trades, the transactions aren't up to date? That's a bummer if so. If that's the case, probably just going to start with beginning of the season instead, ugh

Live start was a great feature IN THEORY but in execution it was poorly managed, not QC'd very well and it didn't get the attention it deserved. So throughout the season it was always sloppy and a mess. More trouble in some cases than it was worth and I lost a lot of time I would have preferred to have been playing the game. I hope this gets more attention next year as it is a super cool feature!

My worry here is that so much energy is being focused on Perfect Team due to the ongoing revenue stream the cool features like this for OOTP will only be half-baked at best.
