The trade logic for 12 is retarded in RTTS. I was picked up by the Astros, who sent Carlos Lee off for Ike Davis and a minor leaguer with an A potential rating, plus sent off Chris Johnson and a couple other players for more guys with B and A potential. The next season, I'm called up and getting excited about pitching for a team that is young and has good potential for improvement.
Only to see Brett Wallace and Ike Davis traded for Lance Berkman, Jimmy Paredes (my cleanup hitter, no joke, and with room for a letter grade of progression) and several other B and A prospects traded for middle relief pitchers and catchers. Predictably, my request to get sent off to the nearest team was rejected. Peter Bourjos is my cleanup hitter. This is beyond incompetent coding. Speaking of incompetent coding, the 1B and middle infielder refuse to throw the ball to me as a pitcher until I'm standing on first base. 3-6-3 DPs are similarly gone. Nothing like a less playable game than the one that existed three years earlier!
I still have no idea how basic things like career OBP, SLG, SB, etc aren't included on player cards. Or MLB career and active leaderboards still being absent. This stuff was in freaking World Series Baseball 2k3. And what's the deal with information about potential being less forward than in 09? You could tell by the remarks on scouting reports in 09 whether a guy with an A potential might be one of the best players in the game or merely a possible all-star. Now there's no way to tell until the offseason, and only if that guy is available as a free agent.
