    OOTP Players

    Just wondering how many people play OOTP regularly. I am a very passionate player myself. Looking to see who, if anyone, would be interested in playing in a league of redszone members.

    I know this was tried once before but that was a couple of years ago; the site is much bigger now.

    Just post below if your interested.

    Also let me know how you normally play the game and how you would want this league to go (historical, current, fictional, etc)

    Finally, if you are interested in helping with this PM or email

    EDIT: In reality you would not need to own the game to play..you would have to send me lineups and such periodically but will have a slight scouting disadvantageadde. So if you want to give it a shot let me post below

    Okay, I'll be the first to ask: What is OOTP?

    Re: OOTP Players

    What version of the game are you using? I'm assuming you'd be using 2007, but just wanted to ask ...

    I'm still on version 6.5 and currently help run a 6.5 league that was born in March, 2003 (three other RZ members are in the league too). We're in our 18th season now and have been going for four real years straight now with the league. At one point during various versions of OOTP 5, OOTP 6 and OOTP 6.5, I was in several online leagues, but this one particular league is the only one I've been in for the last nine months or so.

    Anyway, if you'd be using 6.5, I'd think about it. My preference for a league type would be either a fictional or a historical; I never could stand current day real player leagues because half the owners would lose interest after about five seasons when fictional players would begin appearing in the league.

    Play every day. Not sure if I have the time to commit to a league right now though.

    Re: OOTP Players

    Yes cyclone..I have 2007, but every thing will import for me, so it doesn't matter.

    Cyclone792 and StillFunkyB..do you have spots open in your league?

    Whats the setup and sim schedule?

    Just looking to get into a league that is active and fast paced

    Re: OOTP Players

    I was wanting to do something similiar to what was done here before:

    A league of 10-12 guys and use a database of just current and former reds players that we would draft...would start with about 300 players and then incorporate others in a draft as seasons progress.

    Remember you would not have to own the game to participate

    I wasn't aware that 6.5 and 2007 were compatible with the league file and imports/exports. I'm fairly certain that 6.5 league files could be imported into 2007 permanently, but that was it. I haven't heard any way I could access a 2007 league file with 6.5.

    As far as the league I'm in, we use 6.5 and have required the game, either version 6.12 or 6.5. We very rarely have owner turnover, and we've only had two new owners in the last four or five seasons, and both those owners were actually former owners who left and decided to come back.

    Our sim schedule is Sun/Tues/Thurs sims with each sim consisting of seven days each. After the trade deadline each season, we oftentimes add a Friday night sim for the rest of the regular season (helps speed things along so owners can get back to making trades).

    Re: OOTP Players

    I would love to learn how to play the game, I dunno if I can buy the game though. I would still love to learn how to play.

    I've got 2007. It has my interest more than any version before. I've been entertaining joining a league, so I might be interested. But only a top notch league interests me.

    Re: OOTP Players

    Is OOTP a good game to buy? I have Eastside Hockey Manager and my GF hates me now. I have debated on buying OOTP 07.
