  • Dev Journal: MLB 13 The Show Play Now Rated

    Nick Livingston here, I just wanted to get some information out about our new Online Rated Play in MLB® 13 The Show™. We set out to add a little depth to Play Now Online matches and we’ve done that by incorporating some familiar elements from other areas of the game.


    We’ve tied in the Rating and Matchmaking system we use in Diamond Dynasty, with the pitcher energy system we use in our season based modes. I’m going to leverage our new in-game tutorial system by showing you some screencaps of the brief introduction you’d see the first time you select an Online Rated Match in MLB® 13.


    We now have an intelligent way of measuring who is the best of the best on the Leaderboard. You don’t have to play tons of games to be at the top of the leaderboard, you just have to prove that you can hang with the better players. Even if that means a game or two a week, you will find your place on the leaderboard before long.


    Adding the Rating system allows us to intelligently deduce a user’s skill. Our system is based on the same Elo algorithm utilized in the Bowl Championship Series, professional Chess circuit, and countless competitive online video games.

    Adding the teams and starting pitchers into the matchmaking equation means that you aren’t inherently at a disadvantage for picking a weaker team or pitcher. This is because we moved Team and Pitcher select in front of searching for a match. Now we can account for it in matchmaking, as well as in determining how much the match outcome will impact your User Rating.


    Tying in pitcher energy means Online Rated Matches won’t be littered with ace pitchers every game, and adds small element of game-to-game strategy. Pitcher energy is tied to the pitcher slots, not the pitchers themselves. You’ll want to utilize a pitching rotation whether you always play with the White Sox, or like to mix up your team selection on a whim. This also applies to the bullpen, so you’ll want to put some thought into how long you keep your relievers in the game as well.

    See you guys on March 5th. Come ready to play, I know I will! #beastmode

          Is this a way to deflate undeserved egos. You know the person with a record of 114-10 but he scammed his way to the top and boasts about it while a person who has a record of 54-20 but most of his win/losses are against pretty good players and pretty good games but he's in the middle of the pack on the leader boards. This type of thing made me cring last year after checking the box scores of certain "top players" and seeing incomplete games and then when you play them youll know why they have that record. Exploits!

              No, quality of schedule will be taken into account. You don't get the same amount of points per win. It depends on how high your opponent is ranked. Do you guys even read the article?

              Why is everyone so negative towards online when they don't even play it? Who was it you faced that that boosted their record? If it was in exhibition then yeah that means nothing. However this year people won't be able to do that.

                I wonder with what Lance said, "you won't only use the White Sox ace" if that was directed towards me since i only use the whitesox lol.

                  Yeah man you are the only white sox fan out there lol...jk.

                  I think Livingston did the video and he is a white sox fan. If Lance did it then that was probably who he was referring to.

                  A team like the Cardinals will be a popular pick when users have to use their 4th/5th starters. Garcia, Westbrook, Miller, Lynn, Kelly, etc. will be some of the best 3-5 starters in the game.

                            maybe ask question there

                            Looks like it

                            What a start we’ve had to 2013! We here at PlayStation Network have no intention of slowing down anytime soon, and we have a great new promotion and a number of great digital titles coming your way starting next month.

This means that if you spent $100 you’d receive $20 back at the end in April. Everything from games, movies and TV shows — anything that accepts SEN Wallet funds — is fair game.

Pre-ordering the titles gets you a free theme, and a number of the titles come with additional pre-order bonuses for PSN buyers.
                            Grabbing these titles is a great way to take advantage of this promotion, as every $50 you spend counts toward getting $10 increments back in April. See below for the full list of titles:

                              Thanks for the link, I just did a quick read because I'm still @work

                              I don't have a PS+ membership on my PS3, I hope it is still possible to get it without the membership with my European account
