Desperate Plea

Please remove the "make this work now" button in the trading process. I have discovered the average difficulty to be more than fir and realistic if it weren't for this...it just makes it too easy to throw in garbage players. If not, please at least make this optional...trade negotiations will be far better for it.

Just like in real life some scouts and teams value players higher than others




Case in point in my league I had a make this work now trade where I sent a 1.0 star 22 year old pitching prospect to the Angels completing a deal.

3 years later, He is now their #2 all-star pitcher who was key in their last two pennants with sub 3 ERAs. My scout and I screwed up where as they saw the value is the way I look at it.

Absolutely not.

If you don't like it then don't use it. But don't come here and ask to have it taken away from everyone else.

Please do not remove the "make this work now" button in the trading process. I like it, I use it, and I would really miss it. OTOH, I have no objection to making it optional. This game is designed to be friendly to all types of players. In general however, I am opposed to removing any existing feature. Making a feature optional is fine, but if any feature is removed someone will miss it.

It's totally optional as it is. You choose to hit the button or you choose not to.

The 'make this work now' button is similar to a GM asking the other... "hey who would you take for player x?" Don't see an issue with it.

It totally rocks. Add fast play instead of broadcast video and it gets even faster. Recommended.

What "crap"? You appear to have a personal problem with self-control and the inability to resist temptation and want Daddy Markus to take that tempting button away from everyone so you can't give into temptation.

The "crap" here is your request.

I don't understand why you would want this taken away. In some leagues I have such a deep knowledge of the players that I rarely need to press it, but in other leagues I prefer not spending 12 hours sorting through faceless minor leaguers for a deal that works and like the option to speed things up. Yes it makes things a bit easier, but OOTP is already too time consuming for some people and if you really want to challenge yourself you can set house rules.

Poor impulse control, for an educated guess.
