I would certainly be interested, and would want to be the Reds. However, I would have to know how the breakdown would work with the games. I am in law school and would be able to play usually in the evening. There would be two weeks after the semester where the wife and I plan on going on vacation to Boston. I would be unavailable during this time, as my laptop does not have a beefy enough GPU to run 2K10. I'm fine with the playoff setup and such, but I would like to see the World Series be a 7 game series (don't know if you can do all 5's with the WS be 7.

Yea, Maybe we should do a 104 game season,the Options are 20,52,104,and 162. If we do a 104 game season that would give folks like yourself time for vacations and such.

All playoff and WS games have to be set to 3,5, or 7 game series. I figured 5 would be fair for all.

I'll put you down for the Reds.

after reading more i went and got a copy of the game, personaly i love it, yeah it has a few issues, but nothing really that makes the game unplayable. like it was for 2k9, i would like to play. the team i would like to be are the Cleveland Indians.

5 is fair as far as the ws but realistically 2k has a full stat system now, we should be able to do the 7 with np's, but at any rate sounds good.

Sounds like a plan, bro. I'll do everything I need to do in order to make sure I'm able to connect to the game servers and whatnot.

OK, great to see you guys signing up!!

As far as Playoffs and WS, all it says in the Online league options is "Postseason Format, best of 3,5,or 7". It doesn't give an option for the WS.Maybe when we have our AL and NL champs it will give us an option to make the WS 7 games,that will be up to the 2 champion teams I guess.

So far you guys seem to favor 7 game playoff series,In real life 2 of the series are 7 games so we can go 7 games if you guys want.

Can't wait for the Season to start now,hope we get 26 more teams :)

Guys, just a thought, but would we want a TS voice-com server for the league? I'm more familiar with vent, but Ive seen 30 slot TS3 servers going for about 7 bucks a month and that's a lot cheaper than a comparable vent server. I'd be willing to to take care of the money end, set-up, ect. Thought it might be useful, would just need enough time to get comfortable with it so I can help deal with any problems/issues with getting people set up. Let me know!

I have TS,I use it for online racing.Some guys might want to use it.Before you spend any money let's see how popular this league will be.

I've been playing some games and really the only thing Difficulty level effects is pitching and hitting power.All-star level is very unforgiving on pitching,Pitch meter influeance is on 75%.Let's go with a Pro Difficulty level.The pitching is alot more forgiving but the power of the bats is higher.

So for now we will go with a Pro Difficulty.

If you have friends that have MLB2K10,try and get them to join us.

Sounds good to me bro. Looks like we're getting a fair number. As we get closer to opening day, perhaps I'll post a poll or some such to gauge how many would be interested in using it.

Oh, by the way, my online account is under smartz1 (made it before the post on the league). Gonna try to change it to match my forum name, but haven't been able to locate that option. EDIT: linked the gamertag to Norag on the 2K forums, so hopefully that'll work.

Also, in the way of rules. I've noticed that for my Reds, instead of being on the DL Edison Volquez is quietly waiting down at Louisville for a call-up. I've just ignored him in my spring training since he won't be available in real life until at least June if I remember correctly (Tommy Johns). Hence, I think we should put in a gentlemen's rule that we will not use players who begin the season on the DL until they actually become available to their clubs.

We need 30 teams but if we can't get 30 before opening day we will start with what we have.

My guess for start date is either when we have 30 teams or on opening day, whichever comes first. As far as invites, don't know if Barnes has actually created the league yet. Perhaps we can start that sort of thing soon, although in all fairness, we should probably all start, join, whatever at approximately the same time as to not give anyone an unfair advantage/disadvantage when it comes to free agents. Of course, I'm not really sure how that works since this will be my first online sports game (I play MMO's, but in those there seems to be a dearth of free agents).

I think we should wait with setting up the league until we have opening day rosters. I remember having those outdated rosters in my madden franchise last year...lol

A little bit off topic perhaps, but wanted to ask 2 questions about online :

1) does it actually work. I have not read a lot about pc online for this game. Are the servers working, is there lag?

2) does applying any of the mods prevent me from playing online?

Sorry for being off topic but i really want to get this game and join a league.

Hi Guys,

I will try to answer everyones questions now...

Opening day will be April 5th (Monday), we will not build the league in-game until we have 30 Teams or April 3rd which ever comes first.If we don't have 30 teams by April 3rd we will create the League with the Teams we have.

2KSports should come out with a Patch and Opening day rosters somewhere around April 5th.You will be allowed to use your Rosters any way you want.We will not reconize real life injuries because it will be to tough to regulate.Injuries will be ON in our league so your gonna have your fair share of injuries anyway.

We will try to finish the season by October 4th.I would like our Playoffs to run the same time as real life.

I will create the league and send everyone a PM with the Name and password on April 3rd, early morning EST.

As far as our friends overseas... It will be really tough to schedule games due to Timezones.I'm sure that all games will be played between 8:00pm to 1:00am EST,Westcoast Teams would go as late as 4:00am EST when they play each other.If your overseas you will need to play during those times.I read somewhere that MLB2K10 is regional,I don't think that people that live overseas can join an American leagues(I'm not sure about this).Also we have the issue of Lag.

I will allow overseas members but if lag and scheduling become a problem you will need to be replaced.

can i advert it on 2k sports fourum

I don't think we need too, We have 1/2 the league already and this Thread has only been up 2 days.If we need to fill in some gaps later we can advert in the 2K forums.I don't want some fly-by-nights signing up then never seeing them again.I know that MVPMods members are true baseball fans and will play all season.

A little bit off topic perhaps, but wanted to ask 2 questions about online :

1) does it actually work. I have not read a lot about pc online for this game. Are the servers working, is there lag?

2) does applying any of the mods prevent me from playing online?

Sorry for being off topic but i really want to get this game and join a league.

1) Yes, leagues are working as far as I know.It is quick online games and whos online that does not work for me.Whos Online in League mode does work though.2Ksports is working on a patch that will solve most online issues.Lets just hope it's before opening day.

2)No, replacing uniform files should not effect online play.I would NOT mess with Stadium or global files though,they could effect online play.

Theres a lot of talk about bunting and how it's an exploit due to slow animations. Assuming this is not addressed in the upcoming patch can we ... although it's against strategic baseball... remove bunting.

The exploit is due to the slow animation pretty much every bunt turns into a basehit. I presume the person has to have atleast adaquate speed. Havn't done a lot of online play... well none thus far so if anyone else has seen this let me know. I know I usually cant catch the cpu when they bunt with their leadoff batters =(

I've played 3 online games and they all sucked.The lag is god aweful even with guys with good connections.Plus I never see Who's Online,I can sit here for a hour and never see a single name in the list.I have got 3 invites to play but never saw their name in the list.In all 3 games the lag was so bad it was impossable to make contact.

I was really hoping for some good online baseball,but I don't think 2KSports cares anything about the PC version,online or off.They added online play so we would stop bitching, then gave us 56K servers to play on so it would suck so bad you will go buy the console version.

I hope league play is better because the way it is now,it just plain sucks!

My ISP is upgrading my DSL speed from 1.5 mbps to 6.0 mbps. I didn't even know that speed was available in my area.I need more speed anyway but I hope it fixes the aweful lag in this game.

They are coming to upgrade today,So I will soon find out.
