    With the recently released information regarding online franchise mode in MLB The Show 14, we (HAL9100 and I) would like to reaffirm league interest. If you haven't seen the details on the online franchise mode, here it is:

    http://www.operationsports.com/news/711831/mlb-14-the-show-blog-online-franchise/

    In order to create the best TCBL (possibly plural) that we can, we would like everyone to answer these 5 questions and post below:

    1. Are you still interested in the league?

    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?

    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?

    4. Please list your top 5 teams?

    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)

    Any other comments are welcome.

    We will close this thread after a week and decide our path forward based on everyone's responses.

    Here are the people that have shown interest:

    1. Yes
    2. Smaller, time could be an issue with a full user league.
    3. 81 games. I'm a stat guy, so it'll be easy to double every number and figure out what their production is like - plus quick counts should make for short games.
    4.
    1. Yankees
    2. Phillies
    3. Nats
    4. Angels
    5. Mariners
    5. 3. I'm a die-hard fan, but I'd sacrifice that to be included in a good group of guys.

    I forgot to mention quick counts. This is something that may be considered in order for us to play faster.

    http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/02/26/mlb-14-the-show-quick-counts-and-player-lock/

    If we play 81 or 162, it is most likely a must.

    1. Are you still interested in the league?

    I wont even dignify this ques with a response:p


    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?

    14-18 for the speed.


    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?

    30 seemed nice last yr. keeps it fresh


    4. Please list your top 5 teams?

    Reds
    Angels
    Braves
    Orioles
    Nats


    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)

    0. Wanna try something diff, so no Giants for me this yr

    6. Quick Counts?

    I can see the benefit for speeding up games but it really kills the chess match between the pitcher and batter. I love setting up pitches and you really need a full at bat to do that. Plus that's probly the most fun part of the game to me

    1. Are you still interested in the league?

    Yes.

    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?

    Either. Would be interesting to try the full 30 user league with the new additions, though. CPU teams has worked well in the past though - if its a bigger schedule like 81 games the cpu route might be better.

    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?

    30 if no count is generated. 81 if the count is generated.

    4. Please list your top 5 teams?

    CUBS

    Yankees
    Twins
    Rays
    D-backs


    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)

    9

    6. Quick Counts?

    If it's going to be a long schedule where we have to get a lot of games in, I think generated counts is fine as long as it is determined by player ratings (which I'm sure it is). If it is 30 games, I'd probably skip it.

    Thanks for considering me. I won't have the time to invest, so you can remove me from the prospect list. Good luck and have fun!

    1. Are you still interested in the league?

    Absofreakinglutely... Yes, very much so

    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?

    No preference, I'll leave that up to the experts as to which is better

    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?

    Depends on the size of the league, I think 30 and 81 would be ideal though.

    4. Please list your top 5 teams?

    Orioles
    Not Yankees
    Not Red Sox
    Not Rays
    Not Blue Jays

    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)

    8, I would like to be the Orioles, but its not a dealbreaker if I can't. I'm happy being anyone as long as they aren't in the AL East.

    1. Are you still interested in the league?

    100% yes!

    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?

    Full 30 user league if possible

    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?

    I prefer 162, but willing to play 81, I'm against a small 30 game league

    4. Please list your top 5 teams?

    1. Phillies
    2. Dodgers
    3. Pittsburgh
    4. Orioles
    5. Rangers


    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)

    4....I'm new to The Show, so I may not be that good to start. I would like to be somewhat competitive, and I have a feeling that many of the members will be better than me, so maybe having a better team will help.

    1. Are you still interested in the league?
    Yes

    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?
    I'd prefer the smaller leagues. 18 teams would probably be the most balanced, 3 user 2 CPU teams in each division. Multiple smaller leagues would allow for more people to play if interested. Also, you can play your CPU games at your convenience. Echo what _MG_ said though. If multiple leagues, would want to continue playing with those who were part of it the last two/three releases.

    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?
    30, shorter seasons would allow us to get further into the franchise, and get the fullest out of all the new features

    4. Please list your top 5 teams?

    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)
    See above :)


    6. Quick counts:
    I'd be fine with them in longer season leagues. Don't think they'd be necessary in 30 game seasons.

    1. Are you still interested in the league? Definitely still interested. My original plan was to wait for a year before buying a PS4 but I knew that wouldn't work because of The Show

    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams? I'm leaning more toward the smaller league it would give a greater balance IMO

    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other? Personally I'd be happy with 162 but I guess 81 would be the sweet spot

    4. Please list your top 5 teams?
    Yankees
    Nationals
    Mariners
    Indians
    Padres


    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)
    I'd say 2. I just love playing The Show so as long as I don't end up with any AL East team other than NY I'd be content

    As for Quick Counts I'm not even interested that's just for people who complained about games taking too long so I'll refer to one of my favorite baseball movie quotes.

    "There's no crying in baseball!"

    It doesn't matter, done the latter previously though.

    30 or 81, 30 would be best for more years.

    Nationals
    Reds

    Yes, I'm interesting in the league.

    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?

    A full league sounds so cool on the surface, but smaller would make for better leagues I think. Also dependent on if we leave some divisions empty, or at least two/three representatives in every division.

    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?

    81, for the same reasons I Peench listed.

    4. Please list your top 5 teams?

    a. Texas Rangers
    b. LA Dodgers
    c. Oakland A's
    d. Kansas City Royals
    e. St. Louis Cardinals


    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)

    I'd put it at an 8, but if I weren't able to, it wouldn't curb my excitement for the league.

    Any other comments are welcome.

    I don't currently have any next-gen platform. It's still a toss up for me, an a time table isn't there really. Throwing my hat in here, but worst case I'd be a wait-list guy.

    1. Are you still interested in the league? Uhhhh YES

    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?
    Full 30 would be fun I think always more fun to have user rivals .


    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?
    81 would be perfect with the implementation of the quick count 30 would work without quick count.

    yes


    2. Would you prefer to play in a full 30 user league or a smaller 14-18 user league with cpu teams?

    Depends on number of games we are targeting , might be easier to get more games in with less users. Maybe match guys up by times they can play ?


    3. What is your ideal season length? 30 games, 81 games, 162 games or other?

    I am a stat junkie so 81/162 sound good to me.


    4. Please list your top 5 teams?

    Reds
    Indians
    Cubs
    Nats
    Baltimore


    5. How important is playing with your favorite team? (scale of 1-10)

    About a 2, not a huge issue if I don't get any of my top 5. I just do not want to be the NYY or RedSox.
