A question concerning optimum method of purchase.

With my biggest question (whether or not to buy) already being answered in the affirmative during the last 3-4 hours I have researched OOTP 14, I'm left with one more. From where should I purchase the game?

I have the latest 13" MacBook Pro and an iPhone5, so should I buy from the App Store? I also have a Steam account that I use. Would that be a better choice considering the hope of Community Workshop involvement in the near future? Or should I buy the game from the company itself?

P.S. Is there any distinction between vendor concerning whether or not one could receive any sort of discount on future titles?

P.S.S. This has been my most exciting find of the last...I don't know, significant amount of time! I have been subsisting on classic baseball rebroadcasts, MLB 2K13, and offseason GM-ing to pull me through 'til February.

The most effusive of thanks to all involved.

I don't know of the differences between steam or from OOTP but if you buy using the apple app store you will not get the names of the actual MLB franchises per some restriction imposed by Apple.

You can purchase from the Apple App Store however there will be a delay in Apple posting the updates. When the developers release an update to Apple they take their time in reviewing it before they post it. That can become an annoyance after a while. Also, if for any reason during the first 14 days after purchase from the App Store you are not satisfied we can not refund your purchase. To obtain such refund you will have to go through Apple. Purchase from the App Store at your own risk.

As fa as real names go, there is a way to get them. Feel free to PM me or my good friend Bigrod and we will gladly tell how to do this.

I purchased from Steam but I would probably buy direct next time especially if it's the same price.

Unless there is some significant reason otherwise the best option is to buy directly from OOTPD. I typically buy two complete versions every year. For v15 I may buy one of those two through Steam.

Thanks

Thanks guys; I appreciate the feedback.
I ended up downloading straight from OOTP, I think it will be easier to install mods, and plus 100% of money goes to the company (pretty much). Started a quick league to learn the game and had a great 12 inning first game which I won! I'm looking to get involved with an online league next, is the best way just to do it through the game interface? Are those the only leagues there are?

Not quite sure what you mean.

People thank certain posts. I thanked your post; is that what you mean?

Welcome aboard.
If I were you, I'd definately purchase through ootp dev and not the App Store for the reasons my friend Bowtie mentioned. As for Steam, you can get a free key once you purchase from ootp directly.
Here's how:

Great choice
As for online lgs. Look in the Online lg. section as they usually invite people to join their lg. there. Sometimes in General section as well.
Here's one:

For online leagues I would read through how the league is structured and run. There are a lot of different types of leagues out there. I you spend some time investigating you will find one for you.

Thanks to all who responded.

I have joined a couple of different online aggregations in addition to completing the first season of a fictional "testing" league. It was -- for lack of a better term -- awesome, even though I did lose in the tiebreaker game.

Cheerios,
Me
