My takeaway from the Custom Leagues stream.

No Fantasy draft.

DD mode allows carda to be added once you obtain them. But what if you sell a card that is on your league team? Is it locked from being able to be sold, until you take it off your league team?

No off-season mode. (IE Free Agency)

Probably a separate mode that wont link progress towards XP, Programs, and stubs.

Stream isn't over 5 minutes and you're worried about all of this?

There's 0 reason to run a 30 player, 40-man MLB league. MLB leagues will be mostly 12-20. The lack of a fantasy draft absolutely kills it. DD leagues is neat though. Still, need OFM back.

The only logical complaint I see here is the no fantasy draft one and even with that you can just draft outside of the mode and then assemble with LS cards on the DD leagues

Let me break down the rest of your arguments and why they aren't problems:

  1. If you want to sell a card and it's somehow locked, just change your roster in the league and then sell it

  2. It's not meant to be like an actual franchise, the league repeats itself yearly pretty much, you can swap guys but they never called it franchise in the first place

  3. Boosting would be a massive problem if there were rewards and we still have ranked, this mode was never supposed to have rewards

Some of you guys might not know but fantasy draft absolutely killed something with the game. It was extremely buggy and caused a lot of choppy gameplay in leagues that did have drafts when they were available. I’m glad they removed it. I think the goal is to have solid SMOOTH custom gameplay. And I think fantasy drafts effect that process negatively.

Plus. As you will see (for players who are new to leagues). Ppl constantly quit and leave and commishing a league of people you don’t know is a nightmare. This will be fun If it’s a bunch of people you know. The leagues of ppl you know and competitive ones from this site will be a way better experience.

Is it locked from being able to be sold, until you take it off your league team?

I would imagine it would be. No different than the card being in your Ranked/Event lineups.

The other big issue is player progression and no option to call up players and such. We already started a league and it kinda makes it tougher to now for worst teams to improve and compete.

Honestly, they included way more then I thought they would. Yeah no draft, but the commissioner tools are amazing. It's nice that trades don't revert when moving from season to season.

Not arguments.just Just stating what was said during the stream.

In all honesty; I could care less about this mode. The chance if finding 10 or 20 'honest' layers to field a competitive and fair keague will probably be minimal.

You'll have some that are filled with the right players, some that are filled with the wrong players, and some that are filled with both.

One thing I did bot like is that the commish can overturn games; if someone says their opponent cheated. With out the option to view the gameplay; that's a slippery slope to allow.

But other than that; seems like they're trying to please a majority of their fan base.

I can say this for sure.... I know 20 guys from these boards alone that I can see playing a LS card league with and having ZERO issues and complaints from the masses.

NVM the historical WIN for the DD portion of custom leagues.

I feel more optimistic than Tyler...

Seconded. Amazing number of tools and contingencies put in place for the first go. Definitely well thought-out and planned too.

The majority in terms of number of players would be casuals who realistically probably wouldn’t do much playing in the way of leagues.

But the hardcore fans - heavy users of both DD and non-DD modes who have wanted a way of playing others in a structured way without putting up with the crappy behaviours from random matchups with cheesers, or lag caused by an outlier with a poor connection - this will appeal to.

So anyway I agree with your statement but not the apparent sentiment - they absolutely need to justify the resources allocated so appealing to the majority is necessary. It would have been a massive undertaking to get this up and running. My guess is that the planning of Leagues started back in 2017 with the rebuild, and possibly even the design documentation and maybe even some of the coding was well underway before 19 was even released.

If I assumed the sentiment incorrectly, I do apologise.

The best commishes will lay out rules about having video evidence shared to YouTube or twitch or twitter or something, otherwise game results are final. Hit the share button to save the last 5-10 mins of gameplay and hasta lasagne, don’t get any on ya, cheaters. There’s the viewing the gameplay right there.

Just on that I can see league members really getting into it and watching each others’ streams and what not. Great way to build a community.

Show me in my original post Where exactly I am complaining.

No where in that post is any form of complaint.
