MLB: The Show 16

Recommended Posts

LN-MLB

Since there seems to be several of us who are interested in playing this and perhaps forming an online league, I thought we could use a specific thread here.  Perhaps if it takes off, Hatch will give us a sub-forum. :P

Either way, here is the point of reference for the previously discussed details: 

I would be down for a shorter season if the option is available.

If @G37is managing the Red Sox, that means someone may have to choose the Yankees. :P

Any other ideas or team preferences?

List of potential players:

LN-MLB -- Detroit Tigers

Truelife98 -- Houston Astros

kernalhogan -- Toronto Blue Jays

Complex

Chewy -- New York Mets or Washington Nationals

G37 -- Boston Red Sox

JALJ -- Los Angeles Dodgers

Dodge -- St. Louis Cardinals

PDX96

DavidCore89

JustHatched -- Chicago White Sox or Colorado Rockies

I might get it.

Baseball is one of the only US sports that I like.

I honestly thought EA developed this series, but I was wrong.

Only reason I like it, because they don't.

The other allure for me has been the broadcasting talent of Matt Vasgersian. He's the announcer for the Padres (not sure if still is) and has been doing work with this game for years. He's also got a lot of spot lights and shows on the MLB Network and also does a show with former MLB player Harold Reynolds on that station. I've no doubt it'll be even more entertaining and "life like" this year because of him.

I've updated the list of potential players.

If you have a team in mind, let it be known. :)

When is it out?

I don't know the names of any baseball teams :lol:... Except Boston Red Sox.

So I'll pick when I get the game based on whatever feels right.

It will be released on the 29th of this month.  We will likely start our season sometime in April.  It's been a long time since I've played and I have never actually played it online, so I'll have to figure out how everything works.

You could always go with the Red Sox's historic, bitter rival--the NY Yankees. :D They also have the most money out of all the teams.

As stated I will  get this game but joining the season I'm still iffy on depends on how many games the season is and what the general consensus is for how many games a week people expect to get in and how long games take.

Does it matter if two people use the same team? Only one could advance to the World Series anyway.

If we all do a league franchise together, we'll have to each control at least one team.

I'm hoping there's an option for a shorter season since the regular one is 162 games + the postseason.  If not, we can find a way around things and maybe just sim parts of it here and there.

Are you guys actually controlling the teams in Madden or is it coaching/managing only?  We'd probably get more realistic results if we weren't responsible for when they swing and what types of pitches they throw, but I'm pretty open to whatever we decide.

Yeah we control all aspects of team we play the games edit roster draft players and sign free agents during off season. 

I'm not sure how baseball works but football is week by week thing so if you play your game you can't play your next game until everyone else has played their game and readied up. 

Not sure if baseball goes Game by game

Pending if they will allow us to mix the National and American leagues, I'll be taking the White Sox, if I have to go with a National then it'll be Colorado Rockies.

Was looking around a little today and found this link. Granted it is for last year's version but I think we can assume it should be similar for this year as well. It breaks down most options for the online season.  

http://www.sportsgamersonline.com/how-to-create-an-online-league-in-mlb-15-the-show-6604

 

So it looks like customization should make it fairly easy for us. I would think just want to give a little time after release for people to purchase the game and get familiar with it

Just ordered the game from Canada, as it isn't sold in Australia and the U.S. stores don't seem to want to ship here. Estimated arrival is between the 5th and 15th of April. Makes me wish I had bought a bigger hard drive.

You may have issues with that.

Any time there's an update available, it'll get stuck on 'Waiting to Download' because your registered PSN address is probably not in Canada (which is where the game is from).

Any download is region locked, games aren't always region locked until a download becomes available.

What I thought and what I found may be wrong but they said game will release at 12am eastern and be available everywhere else at same time article say so if out are on Pacific Coast you can start playing at 9pm. Whoever like you said I thought they would have to wait. Time will tell

Yeah that's correct.

What I was talking about is a different thing all together.

Discs bought from the wrong region will not allow any updates or DLC to install until the license holder changes their address to the same region as the game.

Since every game gets a patch pretty early on to fix bugs, Chewy would face problems and wouldn't be able to install it.

So, if Chewy bought it from Canada, he will need to change his PSN details to a Canadian address to install ANY download. However that'll automatically lock any game bought from outside of Canada.

People on pCARS had the same issue and here's how to solve it - Create another PSN account based at any address in Canada, make this primary PS4, install the game updates or DLC on that account, go back to your main PSN and play.

Here's the region codes:

PLAS is Asian English?
CUSA + Twelve digits: Europe.
CUSA + Five digits: Americas.
PCJS: Japan first party.
PLJS: Japan third party.
PCAS: Asia first party.
PLAS: Asia third party.

@Chewy- When your game arrives, it'll probably have the Americas region code, just follow the above steps.

@LN as you know, Opening Day is this upcoming Sunday, April 3rd. That's probably a little short notice but I think maybe that following Friday or Saturday we can begin with the XDBX League. Will give us a week with the game to become familiar and to get things going while it's still hot and people are still interested. So we can maybe aim for Friday April 8th or Saturday April 9th at a convenient time or maybe let that serve as a short "Spring Training" to get some matches against some people.

How you wanna structure the League is obviously up to you as you're the CO running it and we'll be able to explore those options soon enough. I'll probably order mine tonight or tomorrow to have it ready to play for a bit when I'm home that afternoon as well.

I'll get it on Thursday.

Can't get a physical copy in Europe, it's probably not a big enough game to get a physical release worldwide, but it's only £39.99 on PS Store.

Also isn't available until March 30th for me.
