NEW Video on Twitter for Custom Leagues

SDS

New video gives slightly more details.

Can definitely have a 30 person league which is very cool! Still no answer on if you do lets say a 10 person league, do the 20 other teams not selected get cpu controlled or is the league just 10 teams? I am thinking it is only a ten person league then, here is why:

If you did your DD team instead of a true MLB team, do you pick which MLB team to replace? if there are league leaders, you could have like 5 Trouts haha. Interested to see the stream on Thursday but starting to think this is just a league based on amount of users.

Bruh its right there what are you talking about? 🙂

I'm afraid there will be no fantasy-style drafting. Sure, DD teams can be cool but only being able to use the 40 man live roster that the team already has is pretty lame. Hope that's not the case.

Do you think Ramone knew he'd be working with muppets when he Sony hired him?

At this point, I'm just happy they've given us something.. I could care less about a FANTASY DRAFT when you can use your own DD team... I'm glad they are making the people who like to destroy MLB BASEBALL TEAMS pay.. Lol!! Genius idea!! What's even better is that they've took out custom rosters so now when you join a league, some commish with some super messed up ratings are out the picture... This is gonna be awesome and it can only get better! The whining little babies are gonna have to join real leagues now because there's will flop lol.. If not, you'll have to go by packs instead of DRAFTING and quitting because you don't like your team lol... Sony Sandiego says " PAY FOR IT "!! I love it.. My preorder feels like a hidden bar of gold now!! I can not wait!! It's been too long MLB THE SHOW ONLINE FRANCHISE and now you are BACK baby!!! Thank you guys over there at SONY SANDIEGO!! It took 2 years but y'all put the work in and brought us something! God bless y'all!! 🙂

Agreed! Tired of seeing guys who online play offline complain about DD not having enough offline options meanwhile it is suppose to be an ONLINE mode.

You can set team restrictions like overall, so people will be at the same playing level. I don't think there will be CPU controlled teams in this which is different than OFM. For example, a 5 person league will have five teams in it and thats it.

I am all for more ways to play but not when I have to complete an insane Offline grind for cards that then can be utilized ONLINE. DD is literally an online mode. Hover over DD on the menu screen, Create, Customize, and Compete ONLINE. IMO, the game mode should have a small portion offline that the user needs to do. In 18, someone could make the argument that they spent more time grinding Immortals than playing online.

I don’t think anybody wants the full immortal grind to come back, but there’s nothing wrong with having more offline content than we do currently.

The more content, the better.

The problem wasn't necessarily the grind, it was that SDS didn't offer any alternative for folks that don't enjoy beating up the CPU ad nausea.

Your gripe is with SDS, not offline players.

I don't mind offline players but just pushes a little button of mine when they want to complain about not having enough offline content for literally an Online mode. Like it does have offline things to play. I would be all about a Season mode for a DD team so I can use it to warm up for RS.

I don't even know what you're trying to say. It's an 'online mode' in the sense that you have to be online to engage in any of the modes. There is no 'offline'.

I think what you may be trying to communicate is that it's a (or should be) a H2H-only mode... which is also categorically untrue, at least from SDS' POV. Moments and conquest wouldn't exist if that were the case.

Here you go again with some more false information.... They've said nothing about not being able to play against CPU TEAMS!! If you make a 30 man league but you only have 15 users, I'm pretty sure thos teams stay scheduled and you can play the CPU!! Why would there be an option to chose the games in a series played if that's not the case? Why would there be CPU spots on the postseason Bracket.. Come on dude! It's the same as before with a little DD added.. Duh!!
