Dear MOBL League Owner,

End Of Season

The end of the season end date has been set at Sunday August 9th.

There will be no extensions to this date.

I also want to go over playoff eligibility as follows:

As stated at the beginning of the season no longer will a person play a minimal amount of games and have their games simulated like what happened in season 3.

We will be using the same format we have used in our first 2 seasons of activity + standings and a minimum games played at 90% of scheduled games.

The current standings are now listed on your schedule pages with the playoff standings in regards to games played also.

Minimums are set for each league in addition.

League 1 Minimum 24 Games, Leagues 2 and 3 27 Games minimum.

Almost all of you should be able to easily finish the minimums in the next 18 days.

Game Stats

Some of you are not posting game stats win or lose, going there will be warnings sent, failure to post results you will not be invited to the DD league.

Next season players will just be removed for failure to post results win or lose.

Diamond Dynasty

The Diamond Dynasty Season will open for play on August 10th, the day after the 40 man roster season ends.

You will receive sign up information on August 2.

Get playing men.

POSTED 6-28-20
Men,

The issues of activity do not apply to everyone reading this, but I want to give everyone the chance to understand going forward what it means to be a part of this group.

Let me explain how this system works.

I do not operate leagues where people do not play and fail.

I know your experience is that 90% or more of any leagues you have joined fail.

Ours do not.

Every league we have a championship and playoffs.

People get replaced for not playing or failing to communicate.

We add people from other leagues who are active.

Your expected to play a couple of games a week but to be actively looking in the chat to play.

I monitor that more than anything.

So going forward:

Everyone needs to be at a minimum 8 games played to be out of the remove pile by a week from next Tuesday 7-7 .

If you cannot accomplish this to catch up please tell me now.

Very simple catch up.

Now for people well ahead of the pace.

What I do is move you or new people to second teams from the people who get tossed into another league.

Your active and like to play.

So that way we keep the other leagues moving along.

It is obvious the game was crap when it first came out, but now its slowly getting there.

It did turn people off because they did such a lousy initial game release.

Its all understood.

So to recap 8 games by Tuesday 7-7, or bye bye.

Then I will sub in people from other leagues or new people.

So get going,

Trev

STEP 2 Schedule

The schedule works as follows.

We have a listed schedule at the following link:

LEAGUE 3 SCHEDULE LINK

Before each game please check to see who is home and who is away as playing 3 games it differs with each team.

When the game is completed both teams (WIN OR LOSE) will send a game report in with the following information.

Who played, who was home, who was away team, and the score.

The link for game reports is listed at the top of the Schedule Page and here:

SCHEDULE GAME REPORT FORM

Please review the Game Play Rules on the website:

LINK TO GAME PLAY RULES

STEP 3 Chat Room Name Change

It is very important that everyone changes their name in the chatroom in the following format

As example    3-TOR-Dagemmell-Dereck

If you need help just ask with name changing.

Ok guys so as soon as everyone joins and takes their drafted team we will be good to play.

If you have any questions or need help accepting invites I should be online around noon EST Saturday.

Dear MOBL Team Owner,

The Season 3 Playoffs are proceeding along and we will have a clearer picture of who will be elevated to L1 from L2, and who will be staying in L2 either Brent or Jimmy C.

League 3 is ready to go once the draft is completed.

All of our leagues use a Draft List Form.

The way to draft, is to look at the link of the Draft Board, then submit your draft list using the Draft List Form.

The Links are Listed below:

40 MAN MOBL DRAFT LIST LINK

40 MAN DRAFT LIST FORM LINK

Once you draft a team I will contact you and send you an invitation to join the leagues in the 40 Man Online League Area.

If you are posted as to what your draft pick is for Leagues 1 and 2 please submit your draft list using the Draft List Form.

If you are listed as TBD you will be notified as soon as your pick # is listed.

So League 1 Cordell is up to Draft, League 2 Peter, and League 3 Dereck.

Any questions please ask me in a private message on Groupme.

POSTED 4-20-20

Dear MOBL Team Owner,

I was going to send this email out yesterday, but did not feel great yesterday.

A couple of sneezes are cause for alarm these days.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Every year when MLB comes out the game usually has issues.

This year perhaps even more so.

Pitching seems way off, pitches aimed at an area and thrown perfectly are ending up right in the wheel house.

Fielding in the outfield is horrendous, the target dot is off at times, and balls that in previous editions would be easy outs are whizzing by the outfielder.

Please do not take extra bases when this happens stop the runners and do not take advantage of this turning doubles into triples or triples into inside the park home runs.

Hopefully, like every other year these issues will be fixed.

This being said there has been an increased of two things that are taboo in the Leaguesonline.Net leagues.

Quitting games and also in chat sniping at each other.

Any game can be fixed so play the game out quitting is the worst to me, then PRIVATE MESSAGE ME ABOUT THE ISSUE.

Personal attacks in the main chatroom I cannot stand.

THEY END TODAY.
I have zero tolerance for it

Comments about not playing you again either do not fly with me.

I expect everyone to play all your opponents.

I predicted 2 weeks ago between the quarantine, cabin fever, worries about the Covid Virus, and financial issues for some frustrations would spill over into our leagues.

I am starting to see this here and in NHL. Lets get it together men and get back to the standards we have had for years.

Its a video game no reason to pop off or to quit a game no matter what.

Shake hands and come out to play.

END OF SEASON

The end of season is slated for May 8th.

I will be examining closely people that are nor being active.

May 8th is 18 days left in the season.

Get playing!

POSTED 4-10-20

Dear MOBL Member,

Hoping everyone is safe wherever your located, don't get fooled by diminishing case numbers of ill people. This is a deadly situation.

Keep your family safe, stay in unless necessary.

I just want to update you all as to the 40 man league deadlines and game play activity targets.

In addition the start of Diamond Dynasty Group.

40 Man League Update

It has been 18 days since the leagues were open for play.

Along with it the pandemic has hit the world hard.

A lot of people are quarantined, and we are seeing gaming activity go through the roof in all our other sports leagues.

That being said first of all if you are having issues that will not allow you to hit the targets listed below tell me right away on Groupme so I can get replacements.

The season will end 4 weeks from today on May 8th at 1159 Pacific Standard Time.

Playoffs will begin the next day.

The season are roughly a 30 game season in most cases.

The top 8 players in each group makes the playoffs, 9th place stays in the league, 10 and 11 get relegated down a league.( I will be relegated).

That leaves 28 days to complete the season.

In some cases that is not an issue where people are well ahead of the pace, in others its a big issue.

If you are in the class of 0-5 games played I will be replacing you unless your at 7 games by next Thursday.

If its an issue due to some short term circumstance talk to me on Groupme, and we will work out a plan.

I have been running leagues for years, and understand when people have issues and need a little time.

I also know sometimes people are full of crap.

I have 75 registrations I am holding of new people looking to play in a league.

So get playing and get going I will be monitoring the situation closely of each and every one of you.

Diamond Dynasty League

I know many of you play DD.

We will be opening our DD League On Saturday May 9th.

You will receive a signup information email, once I meet with the league Admins.

Steffan will be the head Admin, and I believe Pucky will assist him.

I am looking for 1 or 2 more to assist them.

If you wish to be a DD League Admin please message me on Groupme as we need to meet for planning of the structure of the DD Online League.

A separate Groupme chatroom will be set up for this.

If you have any questions please message me on Groupme.

POSTED 3-28-20

Dear MOBL Team Owner,

When setting up the leagues the old method for franchise leagues used to set up a balanced schedule where everyone had an equal amount of home and away games.

Well San Diego Studios  the game producer is always known for either doing things on the cheap, or putting out a product that is screwy the first few weeks.

To rectify this here is the method for all games going forward.

When two people agree to play a game you need to go on the MOBL website, and check the schedule for your league to see who is home and who is away.

They are in a drop down box listed under Custom 40 Man Roster Leagues tab.

There you will find schedules for your league and your team.

The home team should be the challenger of the game.

At the conclusion of your game both the winner and loser need to post a game report with some simple information.

Who played, who was home, who was away, and the score of the game.

There is a link on each schedule.

For leagues 1 and 3 the schedule is pretty good I do not see any problems.

For league 2 a couple of people played 2 games at home and the games would have been played away.

This is ok for now it was no ones fault and I will try to adjust it down the road.

Until I get the Leaguesonline.Net web guru to design a schedule that automatically updates I have posted a schedule that uses basic web design as that all I can do.

Your report will not update instantly as I have to review each form so bear with me till I have Alex do his magic.

Here are the following links you will need:

MOBL WEBSITE

MOBL CUSTOM LEAGUE 1 SCHEDULE

MOBL CUSTOM LEAGUE 2 SCHEDULE

MOBL CUSTOM LEAGUE 3 SCHEDULE

POST GAME REPORT FORM (REPORTED BY BOTH WINNER AND LOSER)

If you have any questions I will be available after 12 EST tomorrow.

POSTED 3-18-202

Dear MOBL League Member,

I know everyone is excited about the return of online leagues for MLB 21.

The MOBL will be playing leagues for Season 3 in the following manner.

There will be Online Leagues using both the 40 Man roster option, and Diamond Dynasty.

The season for the 40 Man roster group will start this Sunday evening 3-22.

The Diamond Dynasty Group will begin on May 1st as this will give people some time to build their DD teams.

The following link describes the game play rules and the format for the tiered 40 Man Roster Leagues.

LINK TO MOBL 40 MAN ROSTER AND GAME PLAY SETTINGS

This first season players will be placed in leagues by the best of my ability.

Any newcomers will be placed in any open slots on down and have to work their way up the tiered system.

If additional leagues are needed they will be added.

Using the premise the cream rises to the top after a season or 2 we will start seeing people gravitating towards their natural game skills.

I or another league Admin will be in each league with a lousy team as a non participant to monitor players, league activity, or to reset games.

Each league you will be playing your opponent 3 times a total of about 30 games.

All trade proposals must be approved by the Trade Admins before it can take place.

If you wish to be a part of the Trade Admins please private message me.

Seasons should be played fast, there will be little use for people that are inactive.

In order to facilitate the draft of teams I am adding a form here where each person will list their choice of teams 1-11 for all leagues.

LINK TO TEAM DRAFT LIST FORM

Having a small group in each league will allow most players to have a very good team and/or their favorite team.

In all of our Sports Groups we know that people making the playoffs keeps them involved.

So teams 1-8 in the playoffs, teams 10-11 relegated. That leaves team 9 you may ask what do they win or are eligible for.

They get to stay in that league, and not be relegated.

Any ties will have a 1 game playoff determined in a manner by the league Admin.

Lastly, any friends you have who might want to join. get them to me soon.

So the key now is to get your draft picks sent in, if we get them in sooner we maybe able to start playing before Sunday.

Please message me in a private message once you have sent your draft list form in.

Gentlemen,

An unbelievable regular season has just been completed!

Now the fun starts.

Who will be the Season 2 MOBL World Series Champion?

LINK TO MOBL SEASON 2 PLAYOFF BRACKETS

Here is all the information you need  to start playing your playoff matches.

First Round Games are a do or die best of 3.

Second and Third Round Games are a best of 5.

League Championship and MOBL World Series are a best of 7.

We need to play this quickly.

Like super quick.

All first round play in matches should be played in the next 2 days.

Any second round match ups that are set should start immediately.

Get a hold of your opponents ASAP.

PITCHING ROTATIONS

Just like the regular season you are to use a 4 or 5 man starting pitching rotation.

All rotations start fresh for the playoffs, there is no carry over from the regular season.

If you make it to round 2 the rotation does not reboot it continues.

Rotations will be recorded on your team pages.

STATS

The same game stats report is to be used for the playoffs

LINK TO GAME STATS REPORT

TEAM PAGES

Unlike the regular season there are 2 team pages 1 each for the American and National Leagues

LINK TO AMERICAN LEAGUE TEAM PAGES

LINK TO NATIONAL LEAGUE TEAM PAGES

The Team Stats Page has another link also

LINK TO TEAM STATS PAGE

SEASON 3

I have what I think is a pretty good plan for Season 3 due to the fact that San Diego Studios is bringing back a slim downed version of Online Leagues.

Wednesday night at 1000 PM EST I will introduce the method to the group.

There will be leagues using the 40 man rosters and leagues for all you Diamond Dynasty lovers.

That is it for now get playing men.

I cannot tell you how important it is that we whip through this playoff the new game comes out for early release in 9 days, full release in 13.

Any questions please ask.

Dear MOBL Team Owner,

SEASON 2 END DATE

Season 2 will officially end Sunday night at 1159 Pacific Standard Time.

I have added 1 additional day till Sunday.

SEASON 3 ONLINE LEAGUES

The new game early release date is March 13th.

Today we are supposed to hear the exact details from San Diego Studios how the online leagues will work.

Season 3 will be fun and exciting, but I do want to establish one thing going forward.

Some of you have done an outstanding job getting your games played and managing 2 teams.

Some have done alright.

A couple not so good.

Going forward I am not sure what the system will allow us to do with the Online Leagues but I do know this:

Activity and will be the most important factor going forward.

I have many applications for people to play from our Madden and NHL groups.

No doubt a % of these people will wash out and quit hopefully it is a low %, but the history of online leagues are that people disappear or quit because they cant handle losing. Our NHL leagues have grown to 8 leagues now because we screen and weed out these types.

The same will hold true for the MOBL.

So if your not going to be actively playing your not going to be in the group.

I have watched everyone improve at the game this year, and no doubt there will be a break in period to figure things out when MLB 21 is released.

SEASON 2 PLAYOFFS

As stated earlier for every game not played you will lose 1/2 game in the standings, just as we did last season.

That being said you have 4 days to pump out as many games as you can.

For every un-played game played it will decrease your un-played games by 1/2 game in the standings.

I have posted on the standings page enhanced standings as of this morning with 1st round play in matchups.

LINK TO MOBL STANDINGS PAGES WITH ENHANCED STANDINGS

These could change dramatically if you are actively getting games these last 4 days or inactive.

It is very easy to be bounced into the play in brackets a dicey best of 3.

Second round matchups will be a best of 5 up until the World Series which will be a Best of 7

We have a very short window to get the games played like 3 days per series maximum.

People that are AWOL will be disqualified so make sure you have set times to play and to play the entire series not 1 game then cya later.

The final playoff pairings will be posted Sunday night as soon as they are posted any play in series may begin.

Ask any questions you may have all I can say is play your asses off these last 4 days boys.

POSTED 2-23-20

Guys,

I want to thank all of you that have taken part in season 2.

I think we have a great core group here going forward and hopefully when San Diego Studios announces what they are doing with online leagues we will have a clearer outlook on what we will do next season.

I have over 100 registration form for MLB so I am sure an additional 30 some people will join our group so we can set up 2 leagues.

As far as this season goes, the season will end Saturday 2-29 night.

Playoffs will begin Sunday.

Like last season any un played game will cost you 1/2 game in the standings so try to pump as many as you can out this last week.

I will be available as now that hockey is set up I have much ore time for MLB.

We have a great group of guys here and I look forward to the growth we will have going forward.

Gentlemen,

The season will officially end on February 22nd at 1159 PST.

That leaves 44 days to get as many games in as you can.

The playoffs will begin immediately the next day on the 23rd.

The MLB 21 release date is March 17th.

The outlook for next season is as follows:

The website is getting a total redesign by our web developer Alex.

All stats entered will automatically update for each team as soon as you enter your stats.

There will be 2 leagues next season of Franchise/Versus.

One for above average or elite players, another for casual or average players.

In addition there will be a Diamond Dynasty Group.

I went through all of the forms of people hat have joined our NHL Leagues and have 117 people that play MLB alone there.

If 40 of those join we will be in good shape.

In addition the Play Station MLB community continues to grow and will always be a feeder system of new blood to the group.

If San Diego Studios drops the MLB17 servers like they did with the MLB 16 servers when 19 was released we will be off the charts busy for 20.

The outlook is bright for the MOBL.

Most of you were here from the start and I appreciate you being here greatly.

Lets wrap up this season with alot of activity and have a great playoff next month.

Trev

 


 

Posted December 12, 2019

Gentlemen,

We have two new fellows to the group.

Sky and Josh W.

Both are energetic and ready to play.

Everyone needs to start pumping out games, as we are looking at mid February for a season end.

An exact date will be posted in January.

You need to be very active now as the Xmas, Hanukkah, and Festivius holidays approach.

No longer will a game a week be sufficient.

So lets get in the chat and out of Diamond Dynasty as we want to finish this season strong.

We have tested this system out and it works great, but activity in any online video game league is always the key.

I expect the MLB 17 servers to drop this year as MLB 16 dropped last year.

Of course we are all keeping our fingers crossed The Show adds back in Franchise online play but the chances of that are slim and none.

So I am looking for an explosion in our group and we will be doing what we did in NHL, setting players in leagues based on game play ability.

The superstars in one league and the average guys in another.

So lets go now and get playing.

Posted October 26th, 2019

Dear MOBL Team Owners,

Congratulations to Jason The Season 1 MOBL World Series Champions defeating the powerhouse Yankees and Steve C 4 games to 2.

Season 2 as you all know is underway.

Now that season 1 has been completed its time to turn up the game play and lets get some games rolling.

Players that have been in the league at the start of the season should be somewhere around the 20 games mark right now, give or take a few.

If your not, its time to get rolling, and actively look for games.

My goal is to have a deadline of the end of the year for the regular season then a month of playoffs in January.

MLB 21 is scheduled to be released mid March so that will give everyone a little off period for a few weeks.

Of course we are all hoping they put the Franchise mode back in for MLB 21 but I think it is very doubtful.

I am hoping to expand things to a Diamond Dynasty League also, in addition to our current group.

If the MLB 17 servers drop which I have been told should happen I am thinking we will be able to support 2 leagues.

The MLB 16 servers were dropped when MLB 21 was released, so rumor has it MLB 17 will be gone when MLB 21 is released.

We will see and play it as it happens.

Trev


 

Dear League Owners,

I have moved the draft onward, we await the Cubs Rockies Series with Cubs up 3-0.

I am going out on a limb that the Cubs will advance, but we will see stranger things have happened.

In regards to this Nick the Cubs owner has been available pretty much for 2 weeks, as Rob has had some things he is dealing with.

We have gotten to the point of the time it will take me to set up the site with the schedule for season 2 is way past the time I have available the next week to do so. That being said I have posted the schedule of the draft for next season.

DRAFT BOARD LINK

Please private message me your picks and I will try to update the server as fast as I can, in addition make your pick announced in the chatroom.

Thanks guys if any questions please ask.

Dear MOBL Owner,

PLAYOFFS

Not sure what you guys think but most of the games and series have been great.

Some really exciting games and a lot of the series have gone to the max.

As we grow going forward I think things will be much more exciting, remember we are in still in our infancy, and MLB play starts to ease as Madden, NHL, and the new FIFA games are released.

I am confident the MOBL will be an established group going forward.

DRAFT

The playoffs are moving. I can only put it as slowly but I am able to put together a preliminary draft list.

What I am going to do is do what we do in our NHL Leagues.

That being once the final 4 is set the draft will be based on regular season team record for the final 4 participants.

All other team drafts are based on your team record in the regular season and when you were eliminated in the playoffs.

So we await the Astros/Yankees series and the Cubs/Rockies series to finish hopefully by this weekend for the full draft.

For players that had 2 teams last season I used the team they had their worst record with as a reward for double dipping.

This season once everyone selects a team we will allow others to select a second team if they wish to do so in the opposite league if they are available.

Here is the current DRAFT LIST LINK

Please private message me on Groupme with your selection as players select teams.

If you have any questions regarding the draft please ask.

DIAMOND DYNASTY TOURNAMENT

We will kick off our DD play with a tournament on October 1st.

If you wish to participate in the first MOBL DD Tournament please reply to this email.

That's it for now kids.

Gentlemen,

It was a very good first season and a good learning experience for me for what works and what doesn't work going forward.

The playoff brackets are posted.

MOBL SEASON 1 PLAYOFF BRACKETS

There was a couple of ties even after using the 1/2 games played deduction for unplayed games.

The tie breaker was head to head, followed by higher win/loss %.

1st round or 2nd round(If Match up is set) playoffs may begin.

All rules are in place from the regular season including pitching rotation.

1st round games are a best of 5 with higher seed home for games 1-2 and 5 if necessary.

2nd round games are a best of 7 with higher seed home for games 1-2-5 &7

Please send me a private message on Groupme if you want to play season 2.

Changes will be a shorter schedule, and we will vote if we should change the settings to Hall of Fame from All Star.

Please message me with your thoughts and comments.

Good luck in the playoffs.

Dear MOBL Owners,

The end of the season for the MOBL is this Sunday night at 1159 EST.

Playoff brackets will begin the next day Monday.

Once again I would like to review a few things and update you to where we are at.

 

As stated previously each player that was in the season at the start of the season must have 50 games played minimum to be playoff eligible with a 1/2 game penalty in the games back column for every game not played at the 68 games played level.

For players added late in the season there will be some adjustments made to this minimum, based on an individual basis.

So 4 days to get your games in!

Trev


 

Dear MOBL Team Owner,

We are nearing the end of the season for the MOBL.

Once again I would like to review a few things and update you to where we are at.

The season slated to end on August 7th will be extended through that weekend to Sunday night the 11th due to a couple of reasons.

My hospitalization has slowed me down a bit and I understand the NHL Beta is out and people are trying out that game as avid players.

As stated previously each player must have 50 games played minimum to be playoff eligible with a 1/2 game penalty in the games back column for every game not played at the 68 games played level.

For players added late in the season there will be some adjustments made to this minimum, based on an individual basis.

For players here the majority of the season this rule holds true.

The Cleveland owner Walt became unresponsive to requests to communicate and in keeping with the Leaguesonline Leagues rules, when people do this or go into what we call Ghost mode, and fail to respond to numerous messages on the play station and they are on the console, groupme messages, and emails they get removed.

All players who had un-played games with Cleveland got wins for the games.

I have been delayed setting up the Diamond Dynasty Mode as my web guy is on vacation for another week in Slovakia. Once he returns I will get it set up.

Thats it for now get playing kids 2 weeks from today season ends.

Trev


 

Gentlemen,

I have come up with the formula for the end of the season playoffs,

The season will end in roughly 30 days on August 7th at 1159 PST.

Minimum of games played to be playoff eligible 50 games.

For every game not played between 50 and 66 you will lose 1/2 game in the standings per game not played.

I talked this over with Steve and he agrees its fair to all.

I will be looking at each and every player in the league this next week and to be honest with you all anyone not active will be getting the boot.

If worse comes to worse I will have players double up with teams 1 in each league.

So this is where we are at.

Trev


SEASON DEADLINE

I am getting ready to set a deadline for season end next weekend.

Please amp up your activity.

I have many registrations forms on hold from the PS Community.

The goal is to open a second league where we can separate people by ability to make the games more fun and closer contests.

Once the playoffs are set we can pretty much open up league 2.

PLAYOFF FORMAT REVIEW

I want to review the playoff format so everyone is aware how the playoffs work.

1- All teams make the playoffs.

2- Top 4 teams in each league get a first round bye.

3-Bottom 8 will square off in a best of 5 playoffs.

Rotations for the winners of the bottom 8 will carry over to their first round matchups against the top 4.

4-All series from that point on will be a best of 7 and rotations will carry on from series to series.

Any questions please ask.

Trev

WEBSITE UPGRADE AND NEW RATED RANDOMLEAGUE
Gentlemen,

I am very happy so far with the way the MOBL is going.

Now I want to explain the next steps and time frame with where we are going.

If you are receiving this email you are sill considered a part of our group.

Some of you receiving this email had to abandon your league teams, due to real life issues, or you were just not ready to play in a competitive league yet , and that is understandable to me.

You will be able to play in our new Rated Random League (RRL).

Please read this email so you understand the reasoning for the new Website Design, and How the RRL works.

NEW WEBSITE DESIGN

What you see now is just the shell of our new MOBL website.

Please point out to me any broken links or pics that are not showing that you may come across.

The Versus 1vs1 League is now designated name as Franchise League.

The site is built around drop down boxes for each mode of play.

Each main area is listed Franchise, Rated Random, and upcoming Diamond Dynasty Group.

With the exception our Franchise Leagues it will be slow growth as any recruiting from the community will be held to a minimum the next 2 weeks.

FRANCHISE LEAGUES

Basically you all understand how our Franchise League works.

All teams make the playoffs. Draft new teams at the end of the season.

The long term plan here is to establish a second group so we can have players matched by abilities better.

Currently I am looking at establishing a deadline for this current season.

Once the groups NHL regular season ends this Thursday night I will have a good view and will discuss it with the group.

DIAMOND DYNASTY LEAGUE

I am shooting around July 1 to open this league up where you will be able to pit your DD team head to head against other MOBL members.

DD is very popular mode of play in MLB. People that play DD will probably join our Franchise or play RRL also and requires limited amount of work for me so I look forward to adding it to our 3 type of league play.

This way we will be rounding things out in a model similar to the NHL group.

RATED RANDOM LEAGUE

The MLB RRL wil have the same purpose as our NHL RRL.

#1 It is a league where you are ranked by amount of games played and an Individual Rating that will change up or down based on your opponents Rating.

Everyone starts at a 1500 rating.

#2 It is a league. 

The season is about 1/2 of a regular season so the RRL will continue on for awhile.

The schedule is listed with each starting pitcher for each team listed.

When 2 people agree to play a game we always play the next open game on the schedule.

The game gets Randomized to determine who is what team, the game takes place and all thats put into the report is who played and the score.

Every game played will count in the standings for the team you played with. 

Every regular season game you could be playing with a different team.

There will be a playoff, using the same format that the real MLB uses.

Once the RRL playoffs begin there will be a draft based of teams.

When a team is drafted the player drafting them will use that team throughout the playoffs.

To qualify to draft a team the following procedure will be used:

3 Division winners from each league and 4 wild card teams equals 10 teams total.

The 6 players with the most games played during the season will select 1 of the 6 division winners for the playoffs.

The 4 wild card teams will come from any other league members outside of the top 6 that qualify from a special play in tournament.

Once the playoffs are complete we will roll into season 2.

#3 Having a MLB RRL will allow us to also have a means of teaching new people to MLB league play how it is played.

It will also allow us to evaluate people as to which Franchise League they are placed in based on their game play ability.

In addition, it allows 2 people to play a game and work on their game play ability.

So here is a step by step process of playing a MLB RRL game.

1- Two people agree to play a game.

2-They look on the RRL spreadsheet and see what is the next game to be played and what the starting pitchers are.

Here is a link to the RRL spreadsheet, you will be receiving an email soon allowing you access to the spreadsheets.

MLB RRL Spreadsheet

If using your phone (especially Apple Phones) you may need to download the Free App called Google Sheets.

Once this is done and you need help editing just ask.

All player names on the google sheets is by PSN.

3-Then one of the players will go on the MOBL Random Website and input the information into the Game Randomizer to determine who is what team.

Rated Random League Game Randomizer

When inputting names here regular names is fine like Player 1 Trev    Player 2 Steve

After clicking Generate the results will post below the generator.

Paste a screenshot in the room for your opponent to see.

4-BEFORE PLAYING THE GAME PUT THE PLAYERS NAMES IN THE SCHEDULE/REPORT

We do this so the next 2 people will not dupe and play the same game.

5-Once the game is complete the winner should enter the score.

6-Wins and losses for the team you used will be totaled to their standings, your individual rating will be updated, and your wins, losses, runs for and against.

At the end of the playoffs the MOBL Series Champion will receive a $50 PSN card, Runner Up a $20 card.

Strategy

Play as much or as little as you wish.

Playing as a top 6 games played person will get you a spot in the post season for sure.

Thats it for now guys I hope you enjoy the new website and RRL, I can answer any questions you may have.

Thanks Trev



PLAYOFFS

We have cut the league off now to new members keeping it at 24 for Season 1.

With that being the case the playoff format is as follows:

Top 4 teams in each league will get a first round bye.

All other teams will play a Best of 5 first round.

All other series after the first round will be a best of 7 using the 2-2-1-1-1 home/away format.

All rotations for the 1st round will be used in association with the regular season.

All teams with a first round bye can reset their rotations to start round 2.

GAME ReportTS

Its getting better but not quite there yet.

Currently, we have 2 owners each with 2 game Reportts that need to be filed.

I will email both shortly concerning this issue.

I have asked both in private messages if they made a mistake and don't have the stats we can reverse the information we have and get 90% completed.

The problem I have is its been 4 days now for the one person, and almost 10 for the other with no response from communication.

Fair warning if this is not correctly shortly they will be removed from the MOBL.

As stated earlier, I am taking a hard line on this.

Not having both Reportts (winner and loser) makes posting the pages on the site more difficult for me.

ReportTS NEED TO BE FILED IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE GAME.

If people do not wish to do so then you will not be a part of this group.

Otherwise I think things are looking good for the MOBL towards the future when we can get maybe a secondary league and split people up by ability like we do in NHL.

Speaking of NHL, we are approaching about a month to go in the season there and this weekend we have told all of the NHL players to make sure you are available to play as much as possible as some people are behind our NHL Target for games played.

Once the season is completed there will be a 2 month period of just some general play in NHL over the summer so MLB will be the top focus.

Until then people playing both leagues are instructed to be actively playing NHL especially if you are below the target of games played.

That's it for now kids,

Trev


Gentlemen,

As I said earlier some adjustments will be added to any rule changes and you will be informed of them as soon as they are posted on the website.

GAME ReportTING

Being a member in the MOBL requires you to do a game Reportt after every game.

This information was sent to everyone prior to the start of the season.

I am taking a firm stance on this and will continue to do so going forward.

Going forward it is mandatory all game Reportts are posted immediately at the end of the game.

If you forget and close the game Reportt off after filing you may use your opponents information and file the Reportt reversing hitting and pitching.

If you do have a missing game Reportt talk to Trev.

Lastily, if asked for a Reportt and you failure to respond after a reasonable period of time by filing the Reportt you will be removed from the chat and/or the league.

PLAYOFF FORMAT

Happily we have 22 current members in the group.

Ideally for this first season 24 would be the perfect number and the league will be closed off to any new members until Season 2.

There is no doubt that we will be adding 2 more people to have an even 12 in each league.

In this scenario the playoff format will then have the top 4 teams having a first round bye in each league.

I will update this as we go along.

Trev


Gentlemen,

A few words about the MOBL and where we are headed.

The Major Online Basebal League is part of the Leaguesonline.Net Sports Video Game group.

The LON was started 5 years ago as a place where people could play sports video games with mature individuals in structured leagues,

We started playing the EA NHL game at that time and have continued tested out different methods of play.

Our goal has always been to get a larger group of players so we can have multiple leagues and players are placed in them based on gameplay ability.

Our NHL League now has 6 Versus Leagues, some EASHL play, and Ultimate League is opening up shortly.

In regards to the MOBL we are at Phase 1.

All of you are good guys who like to play the MLB game.

Just like you I hate the fact that San Diego Studios got rid of the online franchise mode.

NHL has gotten rid of it also and rumors are out there saying EA may do the same in Madden.

The focus of these companies is on Ultimate or Diamond Dynasty mode so that people spend money to but packs to get players.

That being said I think we have a good method of playing in a league format.

Some tweaks need to be made as far as getting the game closer to simulation play.

As an example I believe we need to possibly go to Hall Of Fame settings next season, as All Star seems a bit to easy offensively.

This is something we will look at once the season is completed. We will monitor the situation, and ask you for your input at seasons end.

Currently we have 21 players in the group and are looking to expand to 24 12 in each league.

If you have friends now is the time to have them join in.

The registration form is on the website just give them the link and to put your name down as a referral.

In closing, its all about having fun guys.

These early days remind me of when the NHOL started, but we have the advantage of having a system in place.

We will test some new things like a Rated Random League (RRL) for baseball also once the Versus 1vs1 League your in is set up.

Any questions please ask.

Sincerely, Trev

 


Boys,

Season 1 is now officially open for play!

Please look over the Versus League Area on our website:

MOBL.Leaguesonline.Net

Everything is there, and if you see something that needs correction please speak up.

Any error in editing can be corrected.

First of all this is not life or death, its a video game.

People will make mistakes, lets use constructive corrections instead of taken offense about a misplayed bunt rule violation.

Also remember all teams make the playoffs.

Please consult the Rules and Setup Page on how to invite friends, and what setting you need to be at.

You cannot play against anyone in the league unless they are on your there is no searching for names in MLB like other games.

They must be on your friends list.

Here is the link to the team owners PSNs, please start sending those friends requests out.

MOBL MEMBERS LIST

I am waiting for 1 more person to sign up to make an even 20.

If additional people want to join I am capping things at a maximum of 24 teams 12 in each league.

If this season progresses well we can add additional players down the road.

Remember both teams must fill out the game Reportt, winners and losers.

THE GAME ReportT FORM

In order to look over your team schedule just click any team icon listed on the page.

If you have any questions if I am not around just ask Anyone in the chatroom to help you out.I should be around by noon Sunday, please private message me any website errors on your schedule pages or anywhere else.

We will tweak some rule changes at some point, but a few of us have been in MLB leagues for quite awhile and alot of these rules are standard in the majority of MLB leagues.

Thanks Trev

Once the draft is completed teams will be assigned to a 10 team league as we have 20 people.
I will try to keep teams in their respective leagues but if 11 teams are selected from lets say the National League and 9 from the American League then the 11th team will be placed in the AL.

All teams will make the playoffs.

The bottom 4 teams in each league will have a first play in round of a best of 5.
All playoff series after that will be a best of 7.

Please look over the game play rules:
A new game play settings pic will be posted in a few hours with the change of AllStar settings for Pitching and Hitting.

The rules here are used in the top MLB leagues throughout the world.

We will begin this first season using the All-Star setting for pitching and hitting with a possible change back to Hall of Fame next Season.


Once the draft is concluded I will put together the schedule which will be 4 games against your opoonents in your league 4x 2 at home 2 away, and 2 games versus opponents in the other league 1 home and 1 away.
Once the schedule is completed I will announce in the chatroom, and email everyone that the league is open for play.
