Damn, this sounds like so much fun. Too bad, I just don't have the time to participate in these live tournaments.

To anyone on the fence about this game. It is a lot of fun (if you have time to participate in the leagues and play the game face to face. I personally think it is the best game of it's type that I have played.

So where do I enter the code? I must have skipped that step.
# 5 choadler @ 05/04/11 03:11 PM
You need to actually sign up for a subscription and the coupon code is put in on that page.

I went for it. I signed up for the free month and hopes that I can participate in at least a few of the tournament games.

You need to sign up to create an account first and then you get the two day free trial plus the free month when you enter the special OS coupon code OS1. You can enter the free month coupon code during the two day free trial or after the trial expires and you'll be able to play in all of the tournaments including the OS tournament and also enter into a league.

Just a reminder that there are scheduled tournaments every day up until the big 64 team OS bracket on May 14 so you can improve your managerial skills for the big event. You can also download the Official Rulebook PDF at the site.

Played my first game and won 2-0. Can someone explain the dice system to me?
# 16 choadler @ 05/05/11 04:26 PM
Basically for an at bat, there are 3 dice rolled that comes up with a number from 000 to 999. The batter card has number 000 through 499 and the pitcher card has numbers 500 through 999. You then need to look at left righty matchups and the card has the result of the play on it.

there are die rolls for range, bizarre, umpire, deep drive plays that rolled. The game automatically consults the different charts for these types of situations and rolls the dice to determine the result.

That is the basics. Hope that helps. There are options in the game to see all of the game engine (the type of rolls that are made and so on).
# 17 MikeCieslinski @ 05/05/11 05:22 PM
The Official Rulebook PDF is up at the home page in the right column and explains the dice system, player ratings and much more.
# 18 JamieHall @ 05/05/11 06:15 PM
By the way, the dice are just there IF you want to see the exact workings of the game engine. If you want to turn them off and just "play ball" you can do that too. Some people like to see every single thing that is happening with the dice rolls, while others just want to be surprised. You can control what you see/don't see in the Display Options. The pop up % graphs will give you feedback on how things like player defense is effecting things, and other special ratings (like clutch hitting or pitching out of jams) are referenced in the play-by-play when they factor in. So if you want you can play the game without seeing the dice rolls and still have a good sense of how your decisions are making a difference.

Thanks for the help JamieHall. After all these years I still just pick up a play games without reading the directions first lol.

I was one of the first to sign up, but didn't pay close attention to the time of the tournament. I suppose we have to be online during the games? If so, I'll have to drop out because I have to umpire a tournament next weekend.
