Preorder Give-aways

Markus,


I think it is really cool for you drop a couple of winners as above-average prospects into the game for those who preorder. I would like to see one more easter egg though, if possible.

Can we get you into the game? As a fringe.

I think it would be fun to see who had the best Marcus Harris.

Hey, no more fake players in the roster set The announcement about the winners being in the draft class nearly gave me a stroke as it is. More fake players would probably kill me

Remind me not to take you to a party full of blonde strippers.

I thought everyone knew that lukas loves strippers with red hair. What do they actually teach in school these days?

I concur! Luckily, I'm likely going to be importing my MLB league and only starting fictional leagues anew, so I don't have to worry about it. I love the concept, but hate it at the same time.

it is simply gimmicks like this why I absolutely hate kickstarter projects. I am completely against ideas like this. If it affects the experience and ruins the immersion in even a minimal way for others, I will always be against it.

Nope, I'll just take my ipad thank you. American Amazon gift cards don't work in Canada

Hey, look at it this way: Up till now every year that we've been able to put real prospects into the draft, we've never come close to filling the draft with real players and thus always had a ton of fake players in the initial draft in the MLB roster set. This year, if all goes well, we will fill the draft with real players but there will only be three fakes, the contest winners. I'd call that pretty darn good.

That not even taking into account that we're also going to have real players in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 drafts as part of the MLB roster set this year as well.

According to OOTP itself, OOTP MLB play (modern and historical) outnumbers OOTP fictional play three to one.

Five thousand thanks for a non-modder? I never thought I'd see the day. Thank you for your support.

My problem too is where it leads to. Pay $100 and get a pic of you in the game, pay 500 and get this and that. I don't think ootp will get to that but what was suggested is the very first step. Before you know it we are all drafting Hugh G. Rection and making trades with the Yankees newly hired General Manager, Stu Pidd.


It's easy for ootp to say they won't go there, but each 5 years it will become much easier and is just a step to phasing it in. Have you heard of the new up and comer, Ben Dover? I played a game called prison architect and the fictional names and moreso the stories just ruined the game...and those stories are from those big spenders who put down more money.

Oh, I agree but I'm certain OOTP isn't going there.

The MLB roster set has always had fictional players in the first year player drafts. I don't think allowing a couple of them to be named after real people will hurt as long as it stops there.

If not Markus will have to find a new roster team as we'll probably be resigning en-masse

Really The future years aren't going to be entirely filled with real players, unless we can manage to clone me and a couple of other guys on the team but there will be quite a few real players in those drafts.
