Last year, with OOTP 16, we saw the creation of the GAF Online Baseball League (GOBL). OOTP 16 introduced officially licensed teams to the baseball simulator. This year, OOTP 17 introduces official MLBPA license, including real FaceGen images of over 800 real MLB players.
Because of the new license: "Every historical season from 1871 through 2015 is included, with authentic logos and real minor leagues". (read more on the official site).

Now, some of these guys update almost every single day. Others, they update when they can....and that's totally fine. Some of the daily guys probably spend 5 minutes each day in game, with more time if truly needed, and other guys might spend 30min in it because they like to dig through the numbers and really play around with their lineups. There are many ways to play the game with varying degrees of time that are totally adequate to keep you competitive.

You can purchase OOTP 17 directly from the source @ http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/out-...park-baseball/ or on steam

Not sure how you came to this conclusion. You're still the GM of Boston and listed as so.

You must have some sort of extension or something that shows your name, because that stuff is 'quoted' as code. There is no color.

Game released today so there aren't pre-orders anymore. The game is 10% off for launch on Steam right now. In the future if you pre-order from the devs themselves you get to download the game 4 days early directly from them and they'll also throw in a Steam key for you to do whatever you want with.

So, we're very close to finishing off the 2019 season. Since we don't have to worry about roster updates this year, it makes the most sense to bring in new players at the start of the new season, 2020.

Could people that already have OOTP 17, plan to purchase as soon as we're ready, or plan to join the league with OOTP 17 let me know that you're ready/willing to do so. 2nd post will contain the list so we know if/when we can make the jump. Might not be able to happen right with 2020 season if most people aren't on board.

You guys both have two teams listed that are currently available. Please pick the team you want most so we can lock it down and leave the others open.

If you need, take a look at the current roster situation on the league reports: http://gobl.obleague.com/lg/reports/..._144_home.html

It's 10% off now through March 29th on Steam, FYI. Not a huge deal, but does save you $4.

You can check it out for yourself!

Cubs were 92-70 in 2019, 2nd in the NL Central.

They led the league in HR behind 6.7 WAR Kris Bryant and his 32 bombs. Addison Russell chipped in a healthy 6.4 WAR going .278-24-82 with 25 steals.

Pitching was solid but not spectacular led by Kyle Hendricks (12-10, 3.88) and Jon Lester (11-7. 3.57) in the rotation and closer Ken Giles (37 Saves).

The Cubs made the playoffs, taking the Dodgers the distance, but ultimately losing 3 games to 2.

Division Series Goes the Distance, Los Angeles Prevails
Thursday, October 17th, 2019
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs put on a classic Division Series that was in question until the final game.

In the end, Los Angeles won the deciding contest by a score of 6-1, to take the series 3-2.

"It doesn't get much tighter than that. To win a series in the last game is a thrill," said Alex Dickerson, who earned series MVP honors for Los Angeles. "Our guys are breathing a little easier now."

For the series, Dickerson hit .421 with a .421 on-base percentage. He had 1 home runs, drove in 5 RBI and scored 6 runs.

Here's the Cubs roster. Pretty much the same, still absolutely loaded. They had guys buried in the minors that would start on most teams.

Once we make the switch to the new version, you'll be able to take the Cubs over. It'll probably be pretty soon. You'll have to download the league file and set it up, but it's easy.

Well, it seems to me that we have enough of the original OOTP 16 players, even some that haven't said so here, I pretty much know will upgrade. The final sim of the 2019 season will happen today, and then I will look into work on getting our league imported into 17 and everyone into that version.

Quicker than I thought, but it seems like there is a consensus to upgrade.

2019 World Series was won by the Pirates (CPU). This concludes the OOTP 16 updates - and I will be importing our league to OOTP 17 today. Hopefully we'll get everyone into 17 over the next few days.

Once I get it imported and uploaded, I will provide details on how to join for everyone.
