What's going on with the Rosters?!?!?!

SDS

I pre-ordered this game thinking out the gate I was going to get started with my franchise but a lot of top prospects are missing! I can understand if they were out of the top 100 prospects but you're missing top 100 prospects like Gavin Lux #2, Aj Puk #22, Tony Gonsolin #83 and a few more. Is there an update coming or is the missing players just not going to be on it? Because I would've just waited until it's release date rather than spending 79.99 to pre-order if I knew the game wasn't going to be ready.

SDS

If they aren’t in the game, then it’s the player’s own fault. It’s been confirmed that Lux didn’t fill out the required paperwork in time, so I’d assume it’s the same for any other top prospects.

SDS

Oh ok. Thank you I did not know that was the case or that was even what was going on.

SDS

There's more to it other than missing players. There's no way you can feasibly play franchise with the current default rosters without running into major issues for many different reasons. That said, Ridindownkingsley, the guy in charge of the full minors will release an update to the vault this weekend that will fix as many issues as possible and add more players.

SDS

Thanks and can't wait for that update. What other issues are you running into? I haven't played it yet because of the missing players.

Other than missing players, a lot of players have the wrong positions, like some teams have 12 catchers etc. and WAY too many prospects are A and B potential which is causing like 30-40 trades during April and a lot of the minor league players don't have the correct amount of player options which causes havoc as soon as spring training is over.

SDS

Also, every catcher in the game has generic equipment and I noticed that Acuna Jr. for example doesn't have a HR celebration by default but yet there is specifically an Acuna Jr. HR celebration is the list of options to choose from.

SDS

I was happily surprised to see Mariners prospects like Julio Rodriguez and Jared Kelenic in the game. Some of the players that got cards are long shots to make the team out of spring, but...

SDS

Lol yeah that's definitely going to be annoying all them trades, I'm going to just wait to start my franchise! In regular play now I noticed they have Bellinger as a RF and Betts as a RF as well. One thing I've always disliked about franchise is how hurt players start in the minors no matter how good their overall is and don't get called up until mid-season smh. I usually have to go to roster control and put everyone in the majors before I start.
