We could use a season mode for offline DD

SDS

I think SDS should really give us at least one more mode where we can use our team against the CPU that's not Conquest.

I want 9 inning games offline RS or Season Mode in General

Just something to grind towards

SDS

Yes that would be awesome. But offline is not where the money is at so we may get it by The Show 30!

But if you give offline players reasons to spend stubs they will.

Yes, you would think that they would have caught on to that by now!

When that survey was around, this was one of my biggest points of feedback (as they were only asking about content).

I even pointed out that the content they had was great (i.e., Ranked Seasons and BR), why not just flip a toggle from the dev side to have it allow for an "offline" mode as well. For one, I am dying for a reason to play full 9 inn games with my DD team, without the hassle of playing other people and all the gameplay issues that are tossed about on here.

I feel like Showdown was a good step in that direction, but still lacking in the 9 inning aspect and using my best DD team obviously. Come on Devs, just let us CPU guys have a season long type mode please!

My guess is that offline players actually do buy stubs to get packs and buy their favorite players. There are also plenty of online players who never spend anything extra on the game.

I have often suggested some kind of offline event mode (could be a shortened season mode) that would encourage offline players to build diverse teams and that may also encourage them to chase down some cards they might not consider picking up otherwise.

SDS

Agree with this. A couple of years ago, maybe for the Finest cards, there were challenges where you had to go through and beat each MLB team in a 9 inning offline game that I thought was pretty fun. Difficulty increased as you started to play better teams.

SDS

YES! I just want some meaningful 9 inning offline games that will work to grind for TA innings, not the dumb signature moments games from last year that didn't count.

They should just make a conquest map that has 9 inning games, can't be that hard to duplicate another map, and just change the inning length.

SDS

Hard pass from me

I gave this exact feedback as well, glad I'm not alone on this haha

SDS

Yes please, I've wanted a reason to play an offline 9 inning game for two years now

SDS

Yes! More importantly, I would also like “offline” to mean “no internet required.” I’ve been hit by the extremely frustrating Network Error plague this year, and I’ve found that I can’t even play Conquest reliably. Why?? I don’t get why I need to be connected to the internet for Conquest but not for MtO or RttS.

Would honestly like them to add like a daily game for your favorite team and you play and earn rewards and at the end of the season you see where your at based on reward teirs but also we have march to october where we can complete modes like this

SDS

There are already 9 inning vs CPU offline game - e.g. win vs Yankees on All-Star as part of the Posada and Granderson missions. All they need to do is make them repeatable for mission points instead of win only once.

I do believe they made the game vs Yankees as part of the Granderson mission so why not do it for all the player missions? It would be more fun than grinding through many of the moments that can turn into a complete waste of time.

SDS

Simple season mode w/ standings and the standard MLB teams. XP is obviously there, and give that mode it's own reward path. Can build in "beat the Yankees on All-Star or higher" type rewards to get packs or something, rewards for things like make the playoffs, win the division/world series, etc. Shouldn't be hard to do, but I think the devs consider all modes (offline or online) in DD as building a great team to play RS.

2k has this. Except you have to beat each team at different difficulties. But you get rewards from each one. Even as a mainly online player I do wish there were more to do offline with my team, when im not in the mood for ranked, events or br. Like right now, not playing this event and barely playing ranked. 2k has a bunch of things you can do offline with your myteam. Im just not into like that.
