    Welcome guys! I'll be commishing NEL along with BobJr and Emmdotfrisk . Like TCBL, we're taking a little bit of time to check out the game and the OF options. The earliest we would potentially start is Monday(May 12th).

    The game expectation for NEL is still TBD. It will depend on how the testing goes. Our plan is to play the months of April, May and September while simming the months of June, July and August. We would like to use quick counts for cpu games but it will depend on if we are able to complete CPU games with quick counts while playing full user games.

    As of now, we, like TCBL, intend for us to play on All Star hitting and All Star pitching and using zone hitting and pulse pitching.

    We will be using the OS Full Minors Rosters.

    Here are the teams that currently have users -

    We use GroupMe to chat. It is a great way to discuss the league and everything else going on in the world. If you want on, please let me know you GroupMe Contact Name.

    While we are testing, feel free to play "Spring Training" games against the rest of the league!

    Going to ask a couple dumb questions here...

    What is group me and how do I sign up?

    And how do I set up a U-Stream/Twitch and use it along with the Ps4?

    Go to twitch/UStream and make an account, then on the PS4 push the Share button and it will give you the option of hooking up your account that you have created. Can also go to settings.

    Guys, I think that if quick pitch is chosen, it's for all games and you can't differentiate between h2h and vs CPU

    Yeah - we are probably going quick pitch for all games. Two main reasons -

    1. Obviously it will allow us to play games faster.
    2. Quick pitch will allow for realistic pitch counts and walks which are typically irrelevant in a show league. This will lead to more realistic scores as well as making the bullpen relevant.

    If anyone wants to get a game in today let me know, should be free before the draft or after the Habs game.

    Has pitching and hitting been determined? Are we staying with pulse and zone?

    We will definitely be doing hitting zone and are leaning towards pulse pitching. Thoughts?

    Was thinking that analog pitching seems to work better with online play. Hard to get perfect pitches, but still gives some control. Pulse gives hardly any chance at control. Especially with a quick count, you may only get 1 pitch in an at bat

    Good point. After talking to bob some more, it will probably be zone for hitting and however you want to pitch.

    Im against meter pitching tho. Too easy to get perfect pitch. And perfect pitches create problems for good contact for batters.

    I haven't tried analog pitching yet, but the pulse pitching so far as been all over the place for me.

    Is this a PS4 league?

    I just got the game for PS4 - have never played a baseball game - a big FIFA/Madden guy.

    You all still open for members? Where are the rules/scheduling/settings etc???

    Just a thought, you should create the league and start sending the invites. This way we can hit the ground running on Monday.

    First time using pulse and here are a few observations. Holy shiiite (excuse my French) what a headache, after a couple of games it got better. Until ya know it's a tough situation and it's going a million miles an hour. Also the user has no control on velocity and barely any in placement (I liked a little since it's realistic, but hated that I couldn't throw my fastest pitch to put a batter away with 2 strikes). Again maybe a minor thing the velocity but I'll keep on playing pulse, the first couple of times were tough but it has gotten better!
