Press Conference (Info about League)

Postby TDO » Thu Apr 04, 2013 2:45 pm

What's different about this time?

The website for one. It will mimic online tecmo leagues' websites. You will upload your save state after each game and upload to the site for automatic updating. The site will feature a plethora of stats and information to make even Sabermetric fans head spin.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Uploading States? How do we do this?

It's just like a tecmo site, the only difference is after the game you need to save as the rotating game stats screen instead of your tecmo blue stats screen.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How long is the season?

Seasons will be 28 games long. You will have a series (2 games) to play every 7 days, unplayed games are simmed 14 days after the series is released. There will be an All-Star game and Home Run Derby Competition at the halfway point of the season. Followed by the 2nd half of the season and the playoffs.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Playoffs? How does that work?

Playoffs will feature all the teams from the regular season in a gauntlet style elimination. The two worse teams face off and the winner moves on up until we get to the Regular Season Champion. The Regular Season Champion only has to win 1 series to be the World Champion for the season. The worse you finish, the more you have to win.
All series in the playoffs will be a 1 game series, except for the final one vs the Regular Season Champion. Best season during the regular season determines who's home for each 1 game series. The final series, aka Championship Series, will be a best of 3. The Regular Season Champion will be the home team for Games 1 and 3 (if needed).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What about Players?

We will be going with Original Rom players this season. When you sign up you include which team logo you wish to represent. This determines which players are available to draft.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Draft?

There will be a timed draft, 2 rounds a day made up of the pool of available players. Original Rom starters must play their original position or sit on the bench. Bench players may start.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for attending the press conference. If there are any changes or new information it will be provided here.

That's cool you are doing original rom players. Do you think any player will be taken before all the American Dream players are drafted?

Can you clarify this please?

"Once the draft is over, you may insert bench guys into any "starting" slot you wish. All starting players must play their original position or sit the first 5 innings of the game on the bench."

So basically, until the 6th inning, you can only pinch hit for the pitcher?

after the draft everyone will have a starting fielder and a bench made up of bench players. After that if you want one of your bench guys to play lf that is fine but your starting lf has to sit on the bench and can't be moved to another position. until after the 5th. Why after the 5th unless its pinch hitting for a pitcher? I dont want any guys trying to cheez the game and after the first pitch putting all super stud bench guys in to replace their starters. Play the game like it's meant to be played basically.

I think this makes no sense Gary, If someone wants to put a player right in off the bench they are using up their pinch hitters and is not really that much of an advantage, nobody gets an upper hand doing this. Just my opinion.

I agree that this makes no sense. Nobody is going to have a super stud bench with a draft. And even if they did, why would putting them in prior to inning one be okay while doing so in one thru five forbidden? Making a sub after the first pitch actually comes with a penalty. You burn a player. You're allowing the one that is a bigger advantage over the one that is not.

Plus, if somehow somebody did manage to draft a stud bench, why should they be penalized for that and told when they can use those guys?

So og starters who are actually on your bench can only pinch hit for the player at their position or for the pitcher, right? Or after the 5th, they can go in anywhere?

So we can draft BENCH players and start them at any position right? If so it sounds like you made the right call. Would have been too confusing for the draft if we couldn't start bench players.

You cannot though draft two LFs and start one in RF, correct? Only og rom bench players can play anywhere, prior to the 5th or 6th inning.

Which brings me to my next (and last) question. I think you've said both "in the 5th" and "after the 5th". When could said LF come in and play RF, in the 5th or 6th?

right you cant draft two at the same spot IE 2 LF 2 C 2 1b etc.

I have said both, let's say no sooner than the 5th. So a bench guy can come in during the 5th but not before.

What's wrong? It still looks like you made the right pick at that spot, or would you have gone with Eddy because of his defense?
