All sports are dead, we may have to settle for digital for a while

Anyone interested?

re: Outside of the Park (OOTP) Baseball 21 Fantasy League
I heard this game pimped on sleeper and the bust for a few years now. How does it actually work? You've played?

We draft fantasy teams and simulate a season or multiple seasons? How long do the simulations last? Is it a turned based game?


Checking out some podcasts to educate myself, but I'll be working from home for the foreseeable future so I'm definitley interested, just wanna learn more

re: Outside of the Park (OOTP) Baseball 21 Fantasy League
I’ve played several versions in the past. It is a very deep sim based game. If you are familiar with Football Manger (soccer) this is pretty close to that level. You can be responsible for as little or as much as you want to. You can control everything and be responsible for the draft, the entire farm system, trades, contracts, scouts, etc. Then you can choose to sim the whole game, part of a game, an inning, an at bat, or choose to play the whole game out yourself (doing this will take a long time to play a season, trust me).

Some people don’t like sim games because you don’t actually play the game. For me it is more of a mind game and I fricking love it. Be warned though, you’ll either hate it because it is too in depth or love it and struggle to find time for anything else.

You can play with the regular rosters, draft from scratch (fantasy draft), or play historic rosters going back a long way. Seasons can go on forever I think (I’ve done at least 20 consecutive on OOTP16)

Yes. They are missing out not being on phones, iPad’s, etc as Football Manager is available on both (albeit a scaled down version).

Gotcha, yes I am familar with the general set up of sim. games. How does that mesh with the online aspect of this? Would we, as a league, decide how far to drill down with the simulations (how much we control vs. how much is simlated).. or is that something each manager could decide?


By the way, dont do like me and order OOTP '20. I clicked a banner that said 50% and didnt realize it it was last years game. Now I need to ask for a refund

That is probably controlled by the person that starts the league. I've never done an online league with OOTP so I'm not entirely sure though.

Been tooling around in challenge mode. Started as manager for Round Rock.


You play pitch-by-pitch or what? The animations are annoying AF. already sped them up to max but wish you could just skip em altogether

Do you play individual games, like a standard vid game or just manage a team, more of a strategy game?

Ever play this mode? Been trying to nab some silver rated players (70-79) in the auction market. Got a Will Harris for under 300 when I woke up to feed the baby at 3am

I made it to the diamond division in perfect team last year. Haven't started a team this year yet though.

you just grind your way up? I imagine to get to the very top you'd have to shell out some cash.

Yeah I didn’t spend any money. Just used the funds I earned by achieving milestones and shite. Once you get to the gold level, you gotta really start stashing funds to save up and buy elite players.
