Important Communication From Strat-O-Matic

PostThu Aug 30, 2012 4:30 pm

An important letter was just sent out to the community. Please check your e-mail to read the message. If you have not received it, please check your spam folder and make sure your e-mail address on your Strat-O-Matic account is up-to-date. If you cannot find the letter, we have pasted a copy of it below.

Dear Our Valued Community,

As President of Strat-O-Matic Media, I am just as upset as many of our customers about the initial launch of Strat-O-Matic Baseball Online. The difficulty of moving the game from The Sporting News site to ours has been a more challenging endeavor than anticipated.

I want to take this opportunity to give you information, assurance and incentive to keep enjoying Strat-O-Matic Baseball Online.

We wanted you all to know that we are employing programmers with more than 50 years of combined experience and have added three more programmers to the project. Please note that is three more programmers than The Sporting News had on the project. As a result of moving the game from The Sporting News to Strat-O-Matic, we were put in a position where we had to recode almost the entire suite of games. It was not as simple as just moving from one site to another as technologies needed to be updated to grow the games in the long term. At the same time, this change in the basic structure of our product has created some short term problems that will be resolved, but are still problems in the present nonetheless. Although the nature of the programming beast makes it difficult to project the dates these problems will be corrected, I assure you that they will be fixed. A smooth-running online game is a significant opportunity for us. It is in Strat-O-Matic Media’s interest, as well as yours, for us to solve these problems as quickly as possible.

The programmers are working overtime on this matter. We have assigned a Strat-O-Matic representative, John Garcia, to address your concerns. John will monitor the boards and provide progress reports via an FAQ format. As issues come up and as problems are resolved, he will post updates in our announcement section.

Strat-O-Matic has remained at the top of its field for 51 years because we have welcomed constructive criticism. We have repeatedly improved our games thanks to the creative ideas and informed criticism of our customers. If you keep your criticism constructive, it will help us now.

We intend to increase the volume of this business in order to reduce prices while adding features, games and platforms including access via an iPad app later next year. We begin with this show of good faith: Every member who has had a paid team compete in games at thus far should check their account balance as each user has received a free credit for a team and may purchase additional credits at $14.95 each or a 5-pack for $64.95 through December 31, 2012. On January 1, 2013 we will end this promotion. However, even though the promotion will end at that time, prices will be lower than they were on The Sporting News site.

Additionally, we will be introducing a monthly lottery system that will award credits to gamers through various prizes announced at the end of every month. So now every time you participate in a league you will have an opportunity to win credits, even if you do not make the playoffs.
We want to provide you with the most fun and enjoyable game experience ever. We are asking you to join us in achieving this goal.

Yours truly,

Hal Richman

President, Strat-O-Matic Media
