MLB The Show '14 Online Franchise (PS4) Sign-Ups

I figured while I am doing absolutely nothing at work, I would go ahead and start up the sign-up thread to get things filled before the game comes out so we can all get about a week or so of practice in before everything starts. The week or so will give us time to do some research on slider settings, etc. to get an overall feel of what we want to go with. As others have stated, rosters should be out by the time the PS4 version is released, I just hope that we are able to use the same roster vault as PS3 users. Anyways, I know of a couple of guys that will want to join that are not on this site, so we will most likely have to find an off site way of communicating scheduling, etc. I'm open to any suggestions for that. I know a bunch of us OS guys have used AIM for other game franchises and it worked rather well.

--------------

Here are some of the most pressing rules that I could think of (posted in a previous thread):

1. If it's a ball, don't swing. If your opponent does nothing but throw balls, it's your job as a hitter to not swing. I don't want to have to implement a strike rule or something stupid like that.

2. If you want to quick pitch, that's fine, but beware of the consequences (early steal). If I see you running the same pitching pattern, why wouldn't I take advantage of it?

3. Bunting has always been a sour spot in baseball games, especially when Wins are on the line. We all have an idea of bunting, and when it needs to happen. We shouldn't see anyone in 3-6 holes bunting runners over. Don't be a douche attempting to bunt to break up a no hitter either.

4. Players should play realistic positions. I remember last year, players had primary and secondary positions, and that was the only ones that the player could play. That way, we don't see Alex Rodriguez at 2nd base so you can grab Chase Headley for 3rd. That sort of thing..

Anything else I am missing, or is there anything you disagree with?

Yes, but don't be a douche and attempt a bunt with every hitter if you are being no hit in the 7th, 8th, 9th innings. That's douchey lol

If that's what he meant, fine. I guess I was thinking more in line of real life baseball.

well you should know that a real life sport isn't as easily projected in videogames. Bunting in videogames is by and large one of the most widely used bitch tactics in videogame baseball. Ever seen a runner go from 2nd to home on a bunt? Welcome to The Show Online. All because of some canned animations, players are able to advance runners unrealistically. Canned animations has been one thing that has absolutely plagued the series for a while now. They need to find a way to have a free moving player engine or something.

Ah I see...I never played online for those reasons. I remember playing a few games of Madden online one time and then I was like I'm never playing sports games online again.

Hell no, I would take Lakers, Indiana or New Orleans, because I don't suck in basketball, and yes I suck at baseball.

With the exception that i've been a Braves fan since the day I was born. I played in a franchise in '13 and used the Padres and wrecked shop. Baseball is absolutely my game. I could probably take any team and turn them into a winner. I just haven't played with the Braves in a franchise before and now I finally get to.

That's cool man, I'm not dishing on you, I just don't have many favorites, because I don't really watch MLB, but I do like Hamilton and Prince.

FTR I'm an LSU baseball fan, and we don't get college baseball games anymore, otherwise That is all I would buy and play
