I’ve been very lucky in the sense that I’ve only had one game that the CPU had to take over. But when I looked at that game I noticed that the lineup the CPU used wasn’t the same as the one I would normally use.
However there is a way to make sure that if the PC take over your game, they will at least use a lineup approved by you
Step 1 Save a lineup:
When you play a game and get to the LINEUP check out the section in the upper right
that area is where lineups can be saved. Once you have a lineup you want to save hit the SAVE button
Once you hit “Save” a popup menu will appear. Type in the name you wish to use for said lineup
The nice thing about saving such a lineup is it becomes permanently available to you on the drop down list before each game.
OK once you’ve made your lineup now you have to save it for the PC
Step 2 Set it as a default lineup
Now that we have a lineup saved you need to tell the system this is the lineup you want in a given situation. This involves a few step. First go to your team’s home page:
Just below the standings is a button that says “Select Manager Profile” click on it.
This will take you to the 1st page of the manager profile section which is lineups. To see the saved lineups you have available click on Saved Lineups:
Now choose the situation you want your saved lineup to be used in. As you can see here Seattle has a lineup to use VS LHP. You can also choose what the system does in case one of the players in the saved lineup is not available. Either plug in another player in that spot or set preferences for various lineup spots if you want the PC to totally rebuild the lineup if someone is out.
When you’re finished hit save and viola the CPU has your lineup ready to roll with if needed
There are as you can see many other categories you can set for your team when the CPU is in charge but I’ll let you explore those yourselves
