Franchise needs to put back in the marketing side of your franchise team, like it started as. Once they took the money part out, franchise got a little boring. I miss being able to set concession prices, ticket prices, merchandise prices and promotion days. Building your revenue was actually a fun part of it....sucks they took it all out.
Would be nice to be able to turn them off
Adding in cash would be AWESOME!!! since we all know the bank is utterly worthless and resets for some stupid reason to 5 million every season.
The only thing that changes in Franchise is they take things out. You used to have real marketing stuff like promotion give-aways, ticket and concession prices, old stadiums like Tiger Stadium, The Astrodome etc. All that is gone which makes franchise kind of boring now---probably why I've started and stopped 6-7 teams this year. After about the 2nd week of April games the fun wears off. Guess I'll stick to RTTS.
I would think in options gameplay mode-specific--try that
I hated that idiotic quirk of the game. Since it wasn't even close to reality, if I didn't get a hit in the pinch hit at-bat, I didn't save and replayed the game. Sometimes I would pinch hit again and get the hit, others I sat for the game. Either way, it was my way of forcing a little bit of reality work-around into the game.
Perhaps they weren't hired/put in the game by the time the game was finished?
Happens in RTTS as well. The Astros trading Forest Whitley and Kyle Tucker for nobodys.....would NEVER happen.
I'd like to see downloadable historical stadiums. Buy the old ones with stubs. They don't have to be on the disc for the game, but downloadable onto the PS system and used in game. Being able to download the Astrodome, Tiger Stadium, Mile High Stadium, Busch and others would be really neat.
I have always hated when you have a runner on second with 1st and 3rd open and lay down a bunt---runner on 2nd goes back to 2nd instead of advancing....WTF!!
