3 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW TO PLAY IN THIS LEAGUE:

Spoiler


After experiencing many problems with the fantasy draft system, and having it temporarily break the league, astonisingly enough, it managed to fix itself. The rosters have been finalized, and we are ready to PLAY BALL! Everybody should start playing their games, and remember, you don't have to play anyone in a set order, but that doesn't mean you can use the same pitcher for every game. You're expected to go through your pitching rotation like any other team would. Most importantly, do your best...and have fun!

Check out the Official CAG League Website, where you can view your schedule, league standings, see who's online, and read the league bulletin board.

If somebody else had gotten the Cardinals and their real roster, would you have been out also?

No I would have figured out someone else to use that wasn't the Cubs, Phillies, Mets, Red Sox, or Yanks. It probably would have been either the Angels, White Sox, Dodgers, or Indians since the Rays would have been taken.

All right...so, you'd rather have none of your favorite players than be able to have a few on a (potentially) different team? You must be one hell of a purist man, haha. Seriously though, I feel bad for excluding anybody, but I really believe doing a draft gives everybody a fair shake. Anyway, sorry we couldn't do it for ya man.

What do you guys do about the lag? Dont they have a 1 inning grace period that lets you quit? Then who takes the loss? I know I would hate to be forced to sit through 9 innings of hellish lag

Im still not to sure about how the win-loss situation is sorted out when there is lag.

I wouldn't sign up for the league if you don't know if you can handle lag...

I played a few games that were almost unplayable last year and I just battled through it.sometimes the connections all of a sudden got better, sometimes not

but if you do play and don't want to play through lag and you quit, you lost. there is no grace period, you start you quit you lose.

Yeah, I don't mean to be harsh about it...but I generally don't like sugarcoating things. If you're one of those people who just HAS to have a smooth game or you'll have a conniption, I'd advise not signing up. I hope to God they've fixed the online this year, but none of us can make any guarantees. There were games last year where you couldn't really see the pitch as it was coming toward you, and just had to time/guess your swing. The important thing to remember is that both people are dealing with it.

I don't anticipate actually starting the league until a couple weeks after the game has been out though, so if you're getting it day one, you should have time to test it out, and see if you'd want to join the league (assuming there are still spots open).

I'm tentatively in. Still deciding on whether or not to pick up the game.


Again, not to be harsh, but then you're not in. I'm not interested in "maybe"s.

A late start will be good especially if they require you to play a certain amount of games to even be able to create a league like last year.

My whole thing is, Im not going to sit there wasting my time and having no fun because I cant see the pitch. Certainly it would not be my connection, so Im not worried there.

Also I believe I read that in online games there is a 1 inning "grace period" that lets you quit the game without penalty. That is what I am referring to.

If its a late start I will give it a shot the first week or so and see how it goes online for me

Yeah, well I don't even really consider it much of a "late start" considering the game comes out a month before the regular season starts anyway. I figure a couple weeks to let everybody get acclimated to the changes, fulfill any minimum game requirements, and to test the severs should be fine.

I'm in if you don't mind having me back.


Of course man. Like I've been saying, I think certain tensions arose last year more as a result of frustration with the overall system. I think those problems are things we can learn from, and hopefully provide a better experience to all participants this year. Welcome to the league :)

Alot of times it wasn't either person's connections, it was the Sportsnet server that was the lag problem

It's just I don't like fantasy drafts for any type of video game sports. I've played fantasy sports on Yahoo for years, but when I play it on a video game, I want the real teams.

It's fine, just more time to devote to maybe actually finishing one season playing all the games in a baseball game for the first time since High Heat 03.

In regards to the lag a patch was put out about 1 month after the game came out and it fixed some of the issues. That's the problem with PS3, the online experience is only as good as the servers. And with the Show (at least last year) they were poor to mediocre.

I would be all over this if it wasn't for the unknown lag situation and also the fantasy draft aspect.

I do wish you all the best of luck though and will likely follow this thread closely.
