      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

I wish I could just start over with my same created guy for RTTS. When I continued from 16, I started off on my 2023 season. 

Yeah same here. I looked at my roster and it's bad bad bad. Not sure what the Dodgers GM was thinking in 16 letting Seager, Pederson and Puig go. 

 

I guess I'll be starting fresh and hope the GM AI actually has half a brain this franchise.

Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and start over too.  Just sucks, I want to keep my same dude physically.  And love the game says my full name.

You're lucky, the game will never say my last name.

I share the same last name with possibly the most important player to play the game so it has always said mine :)

Anyone else noticed that it seems to be easier to draw walks this year? I thought I was imagining it but I looked at the player card and noticed my walks were up by almost 7% this year.

I don't get it. With the Astros and my guy is a powerhouse stud. 31 homers, .445 average and they don't resign me. Got picked up by the As for 2 years, 2.6 million.

This game is hands down the best sports video game franchise ever made, yes better then the 2k football way back. I hate baseball on TV, but these games are so great. That said, I stopped buying Madden and The Show 3 years ago. I'm done with Madden, but I 'm buying this, I can't hold out. Chalking it up to the Mna on the Cover "One Mr. Ken Griffey Jr." My favorite player all time, him and Randy Johnson when they were on the Mariners, I was able to actually meet him, Alex, Joey Cora, Randy, and Martines when I was a kid. I'm in for this years game, hell I'm off right now, guess I'm buying PS+ again :/

Update: i still can't hit for shit in these games

Mostly timing.  And I take the first pitch 90% of the time.  It isn't easy per say, but hitting this year does feel easier than prior years.

you ain't lying, Joey Cora, Alex {A-Rod}, and Ken Griffey batting 1-2-3, with the great Edgar Martinez batting 4th sometimes 5th, later a Great DH, and the "The Big Unit" {Randy Johnson}  6'10" 90+MPH lefty Slider throwing assassin. I Loved Baseball back then so much. I miss what baseball was then, at least to me. Would love to play some casual games with some of you more mature fans. Started off Building an Ace Starter to honor My 'O Dad. I will be making SS/2B man though too. Haven't really dove into it, damned Zelda.

Damn it. Anyone know how to play a full online exhibition game against a friend?  It forces that fast play quick counts shit again. Why show that as an option then put a lock out next to it

I haven't made it out of AAA yet, Batting 331 12 homers 47 RBIs, but LOL ! I want to be traded to the Padres . . . Go figure!!

The game is so challenging. God I love it, and damn fastballs are fast . .lol Hoping I can honestly keep batting 300+ on default settings in The Show {Majors}.

I di put the Fastball speed slider up 3 and the breaking ball slider up 3. I'm not good at getting walks {only have 12} but it feels so damn realistic. My home theater syatem sounds just like being in the ballpark. Wife and friends are blown away at the Graphics Etc. Love this game.
