Anybody else get OOTP 18 yet? I bought it on Steam this year, 1) so I can keep track of just how much I play it [already at 5 hours lol] and 2) because it's 10% off for the first week

Been playing around in the new challenge mode, which is pretty fun. I haven't noticed any major limitations yet as far as the "challenge" but I know you can't edit players. (They're a lot better about giving players positional experience though, for example Ryan Rua is able to play 6 positions off the bat.) I started up a game with the Rangers as my team (imagine actually picking your favorite team), I'm keeping it interesting by managing ("playing") all Monday games and simming the rest. So far I'm 1-1 managing and I think 7-6 overall.

Anyways, it's a really fun game and one I look forward to every year, this year's no exception and they've definitely improved the game a lot (injuries, team chemistry, etc.) from '17. Sound off in the comments with your thoughts!

I have it, look forward to playing when when I'm not bogged down by literally everything.

I'm gonna get Tim Tebow immediately for my expansion team.

You should get Johnny Manziel and Russell Wilson too because I believe they're both available

can confirm the following:

- Tebow is in the game (he's not awful) (the CPU assigned him to AA and he's just been moved into the starting lineup at RF batting 8th)
- Wilson is in the game (he's retired)
- Manziel is not in the game
- rule 5 picks from this year's draft aren't going to be limited (for example, Mike Hauschild was on the initial AAA roster and doesn't have to be on the MLB roster like in real life)
- also 40-man rosters are off, the Rangers (who have a full 40-man roster I believe) only had like 29 guys when I started
