  • Dev Journal: CoTW Real-Time Leaderboard

    EXCLUSIVE! For those of you that play Challenge of the Week, you know it’s an online mode. However, you also know that you are essentially playing a one player experience. To add that sense of community, we’ve added an in-game Live Leaderboard in Challenge of the Week for MLB 13 The Show. You’ll now see up to 8 other use’s live scores while you’re playing the mode.

    This is how it works: when you enter challenge of the Week and start accumulating points, scores of other users playing the mode will be shown on screen. This could be up to 8 community user scores at one time. You’ll see your score in the middle with the four users currently scoring higher than you and four users currently with a score less than yours. As scores change and users finish, the in-game leaderboard changes with live information.

    Hopefully this increases the sense of community and makes the mode more captivating than last year. Challenge of the Week is available in MLB 13 The Show for a PlayStation®3.

    I know the next question… “will there be prizes?” There will be more information on prizing as the launch day approaches.

    MLB 13 The Show hits stores March 6, 2013.
    MLB 13 The Show Cover Athlete Voting begins January 7, 2013 (stay locked in to for details).

          MLB the Show Challenge of the Week is certainly a place to help Train, Time, and get your Batter's Eye adjusted against top tier pitchers of the game. It's a great practice field filled with non-stop heart pounding moments. Now mix that in with the addition of seeing your MLB'13 profile climb up COTW Real time leaderboards along side others, will certainly add more pulses to an already exciting Online Only Mode.

            Challenge of the week

            I hope that you will allow us players in Canada a chance to play & win in this mode this year. That was the one thing that turned me off from playing online in MLB 12.
