  • Postseason rotation

    In next year's game, I really hope they update the logic for starting pitchers in the postseason. Very few teams use a five man rotation in the postseason in real life, and every team maneuvers their rotation in such a way that allows them to use their best pitchers as frequently as possible, including occasionally out of the bullpen. Rtts currently does neither of those things, and it's totally unrealistic.

    Just using player lock in Franchise mode is way better, I think.

    I love it.
    I've created 90 players, every player from MLB down to Single A, lol.

    All fictional names that the game can pronounce, except for my best bud that I grew up with at Short Stop, me at 2nd Base, Eddie Vedder my number 3 pitcher (because I've worshipped Pearl Jam for 25 years), and my closing pitcher Mike Tyson.
    Thought it was a fitting name for my punch out man.

    I play RTTS style with the player lock, and get to be the GM.

    It adds so much more variety and fun to your career.
    I play as myself at 2nd 95% of the time...
    But when I need a day off, I'll take to the mound or maybe play outfield for a change of pace.

    Once in a while I'll switch over to the AAA club and play unlocked, to get the full game fun with a less talented squad.

    I get to do all this and manage contracts, manager n' coaches, lineups, calling players up n' sending them down.

    And oh yes, shorten my rotation in the playoffs.

    RTTS is so bland compared to just player locking in Franchise... are you sold brother?
    Tell me what I have to do to get you in Franchise mode today?
    I could get my manager and see what we can do about that down payment.

    Franchise mode looks good on you sir, you want to look good right?

    You look fabulous in it!
    Okay, am done.

      By the way, another cool bonus to this is...

      When you use player lock outside of RTTS...
      The CPU still does the team management in game, but you can change it's decisions too.

      Like say you're pitching, and you hear they just started warming up some relievers, but you don't want to come out yet.

      You can go into the bullpen menu and sit them back down.
      Or vice versa, start warming them up if you want out.

      Also, if you get your locked player taken out later in the game, it's cool cause then you take over full team control for like the last three innings.
      Or you can go into substitutions and lock onto a different player.

        I like RTTS because I like starting in the minors and advancing through a career. I enjoy leveling up my stats as I go.

          Oh, alright then...
          I'm the opposite.

          I like just being a beast off the bat and having the full first season in the MLB to try to win Rookie of The Year and MVP, lol.

          I think you're giving up a lot of extra variety with all you can do through the seasons by using player lock in Franchise, but to each their own.

          If it helps, you can always make yourself average to start, give yourself 99 potential or any amount you want...
          Manage your own conditioning or leave it on auto conditioning, and call yourself up any time you want.

          I just think RTTS gets so mundane compared to all the variety I get out of franchise.

            Well I currently have 3 different RTTS careers going at three different positions, including a starting pitcher, plus I also mostly play DD, so I do get variety. But I will be sure to try franchise

              Yeah, I used to have two RTTS files.
              2nd base and starting pitcher.

              But I'm in love with Franchise now.
              I got so into it, I created 90 fictional players with names the game can pronounce.
              The whole roster from MLB down through Single A.

              Except my best bud I grew up with at SS, me at 2nd, Eddie Vedder my number 3 pitcher (I love Pearl Jam), and I named my CP Mike Tyson.
              Thought it was a fitting name for my punch out man.

              The only name the game can't pronounce is my buddy Michael Carnduff's last name.
              So I have the announcer say Carney.

              It was a lot of work, but I love the fantasy.
              I took a created player model I like and exported them out for every position, and all three pitcher types.
              Imported them on to a roster multiple times until I replaced all my real Cubs.
              Then spent hours and hours over the course of like two or three weeks editing the attributes, names, looks exc....

              It wasn't always fun, but I was thrilled in the end.

              I switch Mike and my batting spot's every other game between 2nd and 3rd.

              So with both of us having maxed out ratings, I compete with his simulated stats, batting on Hall of Fame level.

              And it's cool working double plays with him.

              But think about it man...
              I get to set all the contracts before creating the franchise, then manage them all throughout the years.

              I get RTTS Style action 95% of the time.
              When my energy dictates a day off, I just lock a different player for a change of pace.

              Maybe pitch seven innings, get taken out, then have full team control for the last 2 innings.

              Switch over to my AAA club once in a while and play a full unlocked game for fun.

              I don't see how RTTS begins to compare, it's so mundane, when I can do all this.
