YES!!! This has also been a thorn in my side for a long time...and has been a reason that i haven't purchased certain titles over the years. Short seasons were around in the Genesis days, so can't be that hard for today's developers.

MLB 2K games allowed this. The problem is, which I assume would be the case for The Show as well, all it does is remove games from the schedule, not shorten the schedule. As the user, you no longer need more than 2-3 SP & RP, but the AI still carries a full staff and rotates through all 5.

Agreed. I was on the "honor system" with MLB 2K, and rotated through all my pitchers. But it would be nice if the developers took the extra step to make sure things like fatigue are adjusted appropriately.

I play multiple seasons in every sports game I play, but I love several of your ideas. The problem, as I see it, is that the developer has to care. Why would EA, or any other company, care whether people play multiple years or not? The goal these days, judging from the annual "improvements," are the card collecting modes, the HUTs, MUTs, and whatever else, that involve microtransactions. I do not see any desire by developers to improve franchise much, so I suspect your ideas will fall on deaf ears (consider the annual improvements to franchise mode in NHL or The Show - have there been any of significance in five years?)

In case you don't know, The Show's season mode allows multiple seasons. It's basically "Franchise lite". So you can do offseason and move on to the next year. You do lose the minors though. You just have a 40 man roster to manage.

The show actually shortens the season so you play almost everyday just as teams do in real life.

On a similar note something that has annoyed me since... well... forever because no game has ever offered this, is that no baseball game has EVER allowed you to go to a 4 man rotation in the playoffs and allowed you to restart that rotation in the next round. No game. Ever. It's simply something that's never been done and I don't get how anyone making a baseball game could miss one of the most relevant things that happens in the playoffs which is the sorting of the regular season rotation and the importance of playoff round first game starters. The tricks I've had to do for over 10 years to get the other teams to restart their rotations in each new round have been inventive but annoying.

Nice job with this, Chris.

To me the way we improve franchise mode is quite simple: It needs to be built around community.
  • Allow for community modding (just look at what the Steam Workshop has provided)
  • Allow commissioners and other members to publish podcasts and other material
  • A mobile app to access the league basics and a league website (auto-generated and can be further customised)
  • Allow for carryover so that leagues can easily and accurately (very important) transition from year-to-year
  • Obviously a fully-featured online franchise mode for the particular game
  • A direct link to a YouTube and/or Steam channel which would auto-broadcast games from that league, or other content folks may want to share (offseason plans, etc.)
  • The game studio should spotlight certain leagues each week ala NBA2K TV. Heck, OS could be a pioneer in that venture.
  • Game studios should add in an eSports element where the best (most active and creative?) leagues are covered and eventually play in a yearly tournament against other leagues

These are just a few off the top of my head to go along w the ideas Chris (OP) has shared. It's time, and folks are ready. This and many of the other ideas shared in this thread could be a framework for Franchise Mode 2.0.

EA, 2K, SDS: If you build it...they will come.
