Experience playing “RTTS” within Franchise

I’ve just about had it with the roster management logic within RTTS this year.

I’m a 19 year old catcher and after 1 full year in AA I was on the opening day roster as the 4th catcher.

I’m really considering ditching this and playing RTTS through Franchise but wonder how it works progression wise.

For those who have done both, how has your experience been?

I wish for future installments you can have the choice to essentially be god in RTTS to make it more realistic. Little things like this could be cleaned up if the player had full control of the league.

Re: Experience playing “RTTS” within Franchise

I haven’t really done it but in my jays franchise, I play every 6 game (rotate SP), the games between I quick manage 2, player lock 2 (sp and then position player) and then use this wheel thing to decide other game.

I wouldn’t imagine it being unbearable to play. To answer your question, I think you’ll sacrifice the ability to customize progression for the ability to handle the roster correctly. I think the only progression you can do is through training, which you can choose what attributes you want to focus on but that’s not as in depth as RTTS.

You could always edit and alter your potential and attributes yourself though. Maybe come up with a system for similar to XP system in RTTS and edit your player accordingly.

Re: Experience playing “RTTS” within Franchise

Update: I simulated the full season to see if I would get sent down.

Well, I ended the season with ~200 at bats in 100 games. Hit .190 with 6HR and 30RBI.

In the off-season I got offered a 5 year $50M contract(!!!!!!) tried to knock it to just 1 year and just over 1M but the lowest they’d go was 4 year and $40M

Agree with this 100%....been saying it for years. ANY type of control would be golden. For me I'd take just having control of the lineup and batting order as I haven't really had much issue with the too early call up or unreasonable contract offers, etc. I was afraid it was going to be an issue for me for the first time with the changes this year but it wasn't. When I was called up, I was ready. You do have some control by keeping a save to go back to after series, season, etc. when unrealistic stuff happens. It's worked for me....I'm 4 years in to my RF save and still enjoying.

This concept interests me for a created closer. That way I could use my player in non-save situations.

Re: Experience playing “RTTS” within Franchise

Been testing this with a reliever and it actually seems pretty do-able. The only thing is randomly my player will end retiring after a future season.

That’s definitely a concern. As well as Free Agency. Unless it’s 30 team control Not really going to have a say in what team offers a deal and what they accept
