@Dounte said in DOES CUSTOM LEAGUES MEAN ONLINE FRANCHISE ?:
Yeah ok buddy.. Whatever you say.. You're clearly backtracking your statement but it's fine. Far from being stupid! ......
At the end of the day, IT'S BACK!!! I know where I stood from the day they released that letter back in 2017 and I've had many conversations with guys like your self who've said the same thing.. The ONLINE FRANCHISE COMMUNITY always knew that guys like you would all sit at one table and EAT YOUR WORDS!! Now look at you... Boom!!
Ok I'll bite. I much prefer civil conversation and sharing ideas and am not normally one to retaliate to put downs, but I feel that I'm being misrepresented here. The only reason I'm responding to your post directly is that you don't appear to be trolling, it just seems like a misunderstanding so that's cool.
@Dounte, in this here thread, on 25 January I stated that 'with the custom leagues we are offered in 20 this is the beginning of that (Online Franchise) rebuild' and that 'it will return, and in a tighter, leaner, more user-friendly, server-friendly and developer-friendly form. We just need to accept that it will be incremental.'
Your response yesterday: Sorry, but you sir were dead wrong!
Yesterday, in the thread " CREATED LEAGUES WITH FRIENDS " GOD PLEASE LET THIS BE OFM!!! you agreed with @eatyum's assessment (made 11 February) that created leagues with friends could be the start of bringing Online Franchise back and that it's good we are seeing progression towards what we had.
On the same day (yesterday) you disagree with my assessment, you agree with @eatyum's assessment that basically said the same thing two weeks later.
From your most recent response, it sounds like you're still convinced I'm a DD player. Please check my Universal Profile. Also most or all of my MLB The Show YouTube clips from the last five years are from Franchise, RTTS or M2O (like & subscribe if you enjoy). Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against DD players. But disappointingly I feel I have had to defend myself from your label 'guys like you'. You seem like a really nice person and your zest for Online Franchise is second to none. I'd hate for us not to get along because of a misunderstanding - I've been all for the return of OFM since it was removed.
Having said all that, if you still think I'm back-peddling, please point out the statement I made from which I am back-peddling.
