All the official uniforms available in the game are great and all, but you want to play with a bit of a custom touch of your own, so you decide to design your own uniforms. You spend way too long on it. You've got it down to the color of the undershirt, the color of the button on the top of the cap, the color of the beltbuckle, all of it. Lookin super fly and ready to take on all comers.

You play a game or two and then you decide to change your team name. So you change it, and you think you're hitting "confirm" to the name change, but what you're really doing is "Initializing your uniforms with default colors". It's too late to go back as you realize your mistake, and now you have a red jersey and orange pants and you look like a color-blind disaster. In shame, you go back to one of the pre-rendered uniforms.

Then you do the whole thing again the next month.

I can't be the only one eh?

Turns out I am the only one that has done this. That's okay, the feedback was what I was after, and the lack thereof is feedback of its own, innit?

I have been the Cheyenne Blizzard for 3 years now. Gonna be 4.

Team names that can't be pluralized are terrible, Ikasnu. The Avalanche, the Storm, the Pride, the Courage, "the" whatever, all those teams are terribly named teams. But the worst offender of them all is the Seattle hockey team. I won't call them by their true name, because "the Kraken" isn't a thing. There can be Krakens, but "the Kraken" violates all the rules of English I hold sacrosanct.

You changed your icon, it has thrown me off, second you don't sound like a freshman or sophomore in college hahaha, but you are right? You just used sacrosanct. I can't believe you're the same guy who hates Saint Pujols. Nice post hahaha. This is funny stuff.

Have you seen Airheads? The band is called The Lone Rangers. Classic.

And to your point, I always wonder what to call an individual on a team which is plural. Like, Aaron Judge is a Yankee....ok, I can get behind that. But Rafael Devers is not a Red Sock. Is the X supposed to change the meaning?

Also, I just use cool old school uniforms that make my team look scary to play. As soon as my opponent strikes me out 11 times in a row to start the game that facade is shattered. But man do my 1906 Detroit uniforms look boss.

Freshman or sophomore in college? hell Eric, what I wouldn't do to go back to those days. I'm older than that now. As the Oklahoma State coach famously said in a press conference, "I'M A MAN! I'M 40!"

I use to have about 6 or 7 teams I use to rotate out about every couple weeks or so as the year goes in. So that meant setting the logos, designing the unis ect. But now that we finally have real MLB and milb unis I don't do my custom stuff near as much. Leaves me much more time for other things. That's one reason I haven't touched create a stadium this year. When game first came out I saw how time consuming it would be and just kinda ignored it.

You are definitely not the only one. I did this more times than Iā€™d like to admit this season, but it was well worth the pain in the end.

thanks Shawn for proving I'm not the only one! I was starting to feel DD-illiterate there for a minute. You are a gentleman and a scholar and they shouldn't even have an "initialize colors" option after the first day you buy the game or the first time you edit a uniform, ya know? You know.

I kept my custom uniforms all season, despite all the options.
Only teams jerseys I considered are the Black Mets jerseys or the Yard Goats.
I didn't change thinking I'd have to make them again.

I post a lot of things, Erc. For example, did I ever tell you that to make a living, I do nude limbo dances during Hawaiin themed corporate events? Many things. Did I ever tell you i once went to England, and when I got there, I found out my debit card didn't work in England, so for the ensuing 6 days in England I got by as a transient? Many things.

Haha, well at least you have a sense of humor. We need more of that on here. I've been to lots of corporate events but none with naked hula limbo.

Also, back on topic. I get superstitious and change my uniforms when I start to slump, like that has anything to do with it. So, you know....we're all a little nutty.

SDS

I was just making up nonsense of course, but the uniform changing thing isn't nutty at all! I always choose a new stadium when I lose, and I keep choosing the same stadium for as long as I win in it. Got about 8 good minor league parks and Date Palm to rotate amongst. Genuine losing streaks result in name changes and uniform changes as well.
