So far I've played RTTS mostly with my OF, and one thing is for sure: I still, even on Veteran difficulty, can barely get a hit when playing this game while high.

Pitching's fine though!

I have a 10 year OF and still not missing a step :-(

Yeah. I don't know. For a true hall of famer, the drop off can be a little later, I suppose. MLB guys play longer than NFL, right? At least, the stars do, anyway, I think.

I dont like that everything can go to 99, to me, that's just not realistic and a game striving for realism...well....
But what I really dont like is that attributes dont diminish as your guy gets older. Maybe people dont regularly have 10 -15 year players for that to be in effect.

Oh they might diminish, I don't know. I've never gotten anywhere near far enough in any RTTS iteration to see, haha. Even my OF from 2018 only got to 2025 so far.

so is 19 better than 19, rtts speaking

I'd say it's better, not by like, a country mile or anything, but it is an improvement (and, again, I mean, 19 is free right now). The personality traits and the perks involved seem really cool. I don't know how you felt about it, but a lot of people didn't like the fact that in 18, you couldn't get every stat to 99 OVR, but they removed those limitations in 19. Now, when you choose player archetype, instead of being limited to a specific OVR, you just have some traits that train slower than others depending on your archetype, which is probably a better way to handle it.

Reading this, I really want to pick this up which seems silly since the new one will be out in April.
Only thing I don't like is all the new features ala player archetype, dont benefit imported players, at least I dont think they do. I hate starting a new guy and only getting in a few seasons before the next version.
I still have an 11 year guy Im working on and my last new guy as 17 I think. There's an old pitcher in there somewhere Ive had for a few years but haven't done much with him, maybe Ill start over new with him

Well they had player archetypes in 18, although I never played 17 so maybe not in that one. So that carried over when I imported my CP and OF. The only thing I had to add was the personality types, and it gives you the ability to do so (although, again, I don't know if anything accumulates so you get the added perks from those personality types based on your accomplishments on the previous game).

Liking RTTS once again though, and this will once again probably be where the bulk of my playing time goes. Instead of seeing whether I could import my player from MLB17, I just decided to start over with a new one. Not sure if they had this in 18 but now you get to choose a player archetype which determines where the bulk of your starting attributes goes, and also new is personality type. Went for the The Anomaly archetype, a SS like my last RTTS guy from 17, and my top 3 choices for personality were Heart & Soul, Captain, and Maverick (Lightning Rod is the fourth one available).

The player archetype was in 18, the new thing though is the personality choices.

I created a new Starting Pitcher last night and went through the 1st East-West game (had to make dinner before I got a chance to play the second and do the draft), but I did go ahead and also import my CP and RF from MLB 18. I didn't play any games with them yet, but it fully imports everything. It's as if I started those 2 on 19 instead of 18.

The only thing I did notice was a box that says "Customize" that allows me to retroactively apply those new Personality types (I didn't actually do it yet, so I'm not sure if you also unlock the additional perks automatically based on your accumulated stats, or if you have to start from 0 basically).

Gave March To October a go, it's certainly neat, but yeah, there's no additional franchise component to it. Too bad.

RTTS is still incredible.

Excited to try this today (was at a point in my ongoing Madden 16 franchise yesterday where I trade a ton of players for draft picks, was very excited for it, had to do that instead of trying MLB). Definitely checking out that March to October first, will report back after I check out some things there.

Totally forgot this came out yesterday for Plus, can't wait to get my hands on it.

Norm, did you happen to notice if that March to October mode allows you to sign and trade players and manage your minor leagues like real franchise mode? I'm also curious if you can play multiple seasons in the streamlined mode or if it only goes full franchise after 1 season (I think it does), but I can check that part out later.

I did! My big focus will be on that RTTS-ized franchise mode spinoff. I'll have some thoughts here.
