    What to expect with Baseball Mogul 2017?

    Is there plans for another version?

    Definitely! We should have a beta version to show off at PAX East (in Boston from March 10-12).

    I'm working on the 2016 stats right now.

    Love a 4th division option and an increase to 32 teams from 30 when creating a custom league.

    Customizable playoffs up to 16 teams.

    Will you actually listen to the Beta testers and actually input their changes/suggestions into the new Baseball Mogul 2017? I know quite a few Beta testers who were quite perturbed that their input, which was elicited and done through their own volition, was clearly ignored with Baseball Mogul Diamond and Baseball Mogul 2016.

    In addition, will the advertising of the product actually match the product INITIAL release and not require the customers to be dragged along by hype and failed promises like has been done many times in the past i.e. Rule V Drafts, 40 man rosters, waivers, etc.? By this I mean, not editing the blog posting or on site advertising after customers have purchased the product to see the new features not included and the so called improved rosters/engine severely flawed?

    Have to agree with both futuremarlinsgm as well as daves.

    Your largest group of customers are people that have been loyal customers from the very start of the franchise and have been using your product to run leagues. It's very tempting from time to time to abandon mogul and use the OOTP franchise for our leagues, but that's because you seem to REFUSE to listen to us. We want Rule V Drafts, we want 40 man rosters, we want a waivers system, we want the option to make as many divisions as we'd like (at least 4 per league, 8 total) and we'd like to be able to manage the amount of teams that can make the playoffs.

    That's not too much to ask, is it?

    I'd just like a game that actually works. Loved this franchise for a long time - but let's just get back to accurate rosters and avoid crazy bugs like have been in the last two. After multiple patches, Alex Rodriguez (who last played short in 2005) still starts the game in 2016 as a SS - just one of many examples - doesn't seem like rosters have been strong since HoustonGM stopped publishing his...get back to the basics and get them right before anything else. This game was fantastic, but seems like we've been trying for too much lately, and the core product has fallen flat...get that back to normal and you'll have at least one happy customer.

    Agreed 100%. I don't care at all about the additional options. Just get an accurate, relatively bug-free version of the game this year that's playable from the release. The other options can be added in the future.

    There exists much science derived research directed efforts being made forth from sims somewhat consistent with the baseball rendition seen here. I'd made sure to retain copies of my textual content that it'd get to the proper people who can test some of the ideas, found easily on any internet medium.

    I've had this dream where I'll be able to communicate apologetically in a meaningfully participatory way that personally empowers peer users over all social venues. Merging thoughts taken place per a creative injection and thus yearningly connecting the dots that we'd see the deeper picture and feel the full truth below this, drives oomph.

    At one previous juncture had been tallied among bullying sufferers who used vile descriptive derogation. This was a childhood traumatic event which remains present as is especially presented by one's own habit. That the intellectualist advancement is a focal goal since it aids self value extant to a prior weak spot and strength building. Also we'd need always venture onward even when the toil seems tough, for the greater mission other than an earthly context.

    Write about this topic given that not every continual customer has the same ideals, we're uniquely trending upon what yields merit to us. With each abiding member there will be a perceptual experience that is entirely central to their neuroanatomical distinguishment. Kind of like varied colors within certain spectrum frequency or the petals which bud during generational opportunity. We've got to put either foot into the shoes of the next that we'd act in a neighborly demeanor for long term mutual rapport.

    Yay! Shut up and take my money! :-p I hope I can get in on the beta testing, too.

    Every year, the thing I probably look forward to most is the updated rosters. I like to get to know who the Cubs have in their minor leagues, major leagues, etc.

    Re: What to expect with Baseball Mogul 2017?

    I'd like to beta test again. I did it a few times back in 2006, long-term here.
    Though I'm aware the way I play is not the typical path, I love going 100+ years into the future.
    Bill Mueller was the best third baseman in the year 2003. He was not the best third baseman when I wrote my first signature, because that was in 2001...

    Do you sim ahead 100 years then play? Interesting concept.

    No, I tend to actually play the games for 100+ years from the start date.

    My current game is Diamond and it's 2160 now started as 2015 expansion team Portland Mavericks.

    One thing that happens is that attendances go down for all teams.

    I do the same thing! I love playing far into the future, and seeing the long-term patterns of my franchise as the years come and go. I would be interested in talking to you more about this, since I have never met anyone else who plays this way!
