@ChArTeRBuS said in Looks like I'm buying a PS5 for OFM:
Having played OFM mode before I’d say there is more in that video to suggest CPU teams are a thing, as opposed to the opposite. Especially that abundantly clear moment when they picked the white Sox in a already started league and didn’t populate the team through an invite like you claim, they were already there waiting to be picked. The Phillies were locked because they were already chosen, the others were not because they were....CPU.
It's a subtle thing. They showed a league that didn't have all slots taken, but they didn't show if it was possible to play games before all slots were taken. For all we know, it may not be possible to start playing games until all slots are taken by human players.
This was when SDS showed the feature to search and join leagues, why would you only be able to search through the infinite number of leagues that haven’t started as oppose to ones that are started with CPU teams that need spots filled.... Just like you could before...
Nothing about the “no CPU teams” theory even makes any sense. People look for ANYTHING to complain about even if it’s a game mode they never play.
As for the article and “pRetTy MucH evEryThing You saiD beInG InAccUratE” is actually pretty much all in the article. The only thing that isn’t is the CPU teams which I’m assuming SDS didn’t talk about because it’s obvious and common sense.
Personally, it's because I don't trust them and I'm not willing to take anything on faith. I want more meaningful single-player things to do with my DD team (and I know I'm not the only one) and it looks like Custom Leagues may fit that bill. But there are questions about certain areas of how it works, and I'm not going to assume anything given how SDS doesn't seem interested in making meaningful single-player things to do with my DD team beyond a couple of very narrow modes (Conquest and a small minority of Moments) that seem more intended to be occasional diversions for H2H players. It seems to me that if they were interested in attracting single-player DD users, they'd be glad to confirm you as being right about being able to start a league with CPU teams. But they haven't, which tells me they're not trying to appeal to me.
