MLB The Show Livestream: Leagues

Tune in tomorrow at 3 PM PT for the Custom Leagues Livestream.

If you have a question, here is a good place to post it.

Is it possible to have CPU-controlled teams in a Custom League, using Live Rosters or when setting the league to use DD cards? If not, how is it handled when a player needs to quit or when the commissioner needs to eject an unruly player?

When using DD cards, may we alter our rosters from our collection mid-season or is the roster fixed at the start of the league?

Can you answer a pre-order question?

Will the Diamond and Gold Choice players you get for preordering, not the Loyalty ones, be sellable on the Marketplace? Or will they be auto locked into a collection as soon as you select a card?

Are there going to be trades?
Will there be any minor leaguers beyond the 40-man?
Is there any progression at all MLB or minors?

Trades = yes
Beyond 40 man = no
Progression = can you elaborate?

The first two answers are from the PlayStation Blog, the other one I don’t think will be answered from the blog but you knever now.

Questions-

1- Can you be in more than 1 custom league with DD rosters at a time?

2- Stats. Are stats pure for each league or each mode? Example. Trout is in 2 custom leagues. He goes 10-10 in one league and 0-10 in the other. Does his BA show 1.000, .000 or .500?

3- after loading up a DD custom league and new legends are revealed, if you acquire a new card is it available for a league you have joined already or would you need to create a new league to use the new card?

Why is there no option to use custom roster in your fully customizable league?

Will there be Offseason? I know it's been mentioned that the mode will be 'Multi-Season' -- how will Player Progression, Resigns, Free Agency, etc. work and carry over to the next Season? I really hope you guys are able to discuss this during todays stream as many of us are curious. Also, will injuries be included in LG settings?

I think that was probably part of the problem with OF. So many leagues with custom rosters probably contributed to server strain and game mode issues.

I'm betting this is their compromise on OF. Get that OF feel back into the game, but in a way that is server friendly and bug free 🤞

That would make sense. I hope they address it.

I think I speak for alot of people. Will there be a fantasy draft option for the 40 man Live Rosters?

Will there be any off season at all? Or just a reset to a new season with the same rosters? Contracts?

Do the Live Series cards update during the league season based on real life? What happens if a player gets hurt in real life?

Will there be an in-game mechanism for finding leagues or will formation be run through TSN?

Will games in this mode award the same XP and program progress as regular DD? If so, can you turn off progress towards stat based missions? I’d hate to see this mode abused by stat boosters.

If I had to guess at the most recent questions

Fantasy Draft? Doubtful. It would be great of there were but I am not expecting it.

Offseason? If there is it will be minor housecleaning type stuff. Nothing in depth

Live Series Cards update? I doubt it. It would suck to play as Dodgers and have, for instance Betts and Bellinger go out with injuries.

XP - I would assume you would get the standard XP for playing the game. There is no way the stats will count for any stat missions. Too easy to abuse

From a development perspective, players are players - each are the same object: a bunch of numbers to load (both playing attributes and appearance), custom or otherwise.

Custom rosters will return, but because this is all new code there would have been a list of must haves for 20 (features to make it a viable stable product that users will want to play) and a list of things to add going forward in 21 and beyond (things to make it better). Custom leagues and drafts are in the latter category.

This post is deleted!

Will position player's stamina / energy finally be affected by amounts of games played in a row? Would be nice to finally see users subbing players for some rest / show some managerial skills and lineup decisions.

What types of restrictions can be put on a team made of DD cards? Are commissioners able to limit teams to, for example, no more than three diamond cards?

Will we be able to join more than ONE Custom League at a time?
