    The Online Franchise is created and games are available to play.

    Once again, we are playing 82 game seasons. Like NEBL, we would like to play 1 month in 14 days. With quick counts and each game averaging about 25 minutes per, it should work. We will consider adjusting the pace if need be.

    As far as settings -

    Hitting - Zone
    Pitcing - Pulse or Analog. If you are new to the Show, you can use meter for now.

    Hitting Difficulty - All Star
    Pitching Difficulty - All Star

    Trades - there is no limit. Trades will be approved unless they are absolutely ridiculous.

    Free Agents - First come, first serve starting now. Since the best free agent available is 40 year old Octavio Dotel, I don't think anyone will care.

    Guess Pitch - Off
    Strike Zone - Off
    Hot Zones - Preview
    Balks - On
    Umpire Balls and Strikes - Variable
    Ejections - On
    Injuries - On
    Presentation Mode - Fast Play

    Franchise Team Settings - you can set whatever you want to auto or manual. Up to you.....

    Other rules:

    1. Rotations must be 5 man with a strict rotation. It is easy to track by game starts. Please don't deviate unless you are spot starting a 6th pitcher.

    2. CPU Games - When you play, please play the entire series before moving to the next cpu game.

    3. No rules on pitching near the zone. If you want to throw all of your pitches in the dirt, feel free.

    Again, this league is just for fun. So if you mess something up or do something stupid, don't worry about it. This is the first year of online franchise for the Show so I'm sure there will be plenty of issues. Just let me know.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks,
    Ry

    After watching the youtube video, the Tribe has made an offer to Octavio Dotel. Much in the same way the Browns drafted JFF after he asked them to via text!

    CLEVELAND!!

    Also, everyone should probably change their team settings to manual.

    If not, the cpu will do stupid stuff like try to trade Chris Davis (orioles).

    So, am I allowed to play CPU games that are later on my schedule than some user games?

    Yep. As long as you play the series against the same CPU team.

    Anyway to fix the problem above^^^ will play most of my games maƱana and the teams are still empty. Don't want to face Kershaw 6 times in a row, well maybe I do since his energy would be 0%
