    Those of you who preorderd should have the game available. Let's hear your thoughts on the new additions and changes!

    Also, as mentioned previously we will be switching to OOTP '14 during the 2020/2021 offseason. Most likely 1/1/21 or 2/6/21. Please make sure you have purchased the game by then. Estimated time, 6 weeks from today.

    My first initial thoughts:

    • Love, love, love the new bullpen setup and roles. Takes bullpen micromanagement to a new level.
    • Also love that we can now set an order of pinch hitters and pinch runners.
    • I'm going to have to do some testing/research on the customization of draft classes and international free agents. But the fact I can set % from each nation is a godsend. Not nearly enough asians in our league. Expect that to change :)

    Really wished they added more stats to track.

    The graphical depth chart screen is legit too. It will be excellent for team previews.

    It won't be a fight. It will be me just coming in and dominating the market for them.

    I like to make custom leagues so all the new customization options are awesome. Especially the new cap and jersey templates and away uniforms. All I need now is a Persian name set. Why is there an Azerbaijani name set but not a Persian name set? That's silly.

    Definitely like the new storylines. It looks like player personality will play a larger role this year....

    Since he ordered all of them, I think he was probably the only one who got the e-mail. Hit him up in PM or Skype for the link. Are you on PC or Mac?

    this happened in 13 as well. Not a new feature.

    While I don't disagree, this would only happen if Bud Selig personally assassinated Hank Steinbrenner.

    Ahh. I never really played the single player of OOTP 13 so I didn't know that.

    I like the new bullpen roles. Outside of that, I haven't noticed many differences.

    The new bullpen roles are great, and seem to work well. I'm not too far in, but I haven't found much use for that International Complex yet.

    I think the player origin is the biggest addition to the sim. Hopefully it is implemented well and can mimic real life a little closer. Does anyone know how the new online league features will work?

    Only two things I want added are an organizational spread sheet that show how many guys you have at every position and what level, like MVP Baseball 05 had. The second thing is I want a manger that realizes that if my closer goes in for a 2nd inning we lose every time. He even let the guy take an at bat before blowing a save against the Braves.
