Timed Programs

SDS

Would anyone else like to see the timed programs disappear? I liked 16's approach (I think), where you could complete the programs at your own pace.

I know I haven't finished at least three inning programs due to not being able to play enough at the time. Sadly, I can't complete them to get the bosses either at this point.

Maybe if there was an option to work on the inning program after the fact, it would be more palatable.

Anyway, that's my thought for the day.

SDS

Totally agree with this. Imo it would be cool for them to do the inning programs as they are, but add a new feature where after the program ends, they release a set of missions that allow people to grind and complete the program at their own leisure

SDS

Yeah, I don't mind them being timed so much as not being able to go back and finish them later.

Like Mitch said, Keep the current 1-10th inning kinda thing, so that when you play games you get stars for whatever current one there is, but ensure that once it ends, there are enough moments or goals or whatever gives stars to finish it at a later date too.

SDS

I feel like the missions Mitch mentioned should be standard at the start of the program. You should be able to finish each program through online missions, offline missions OR moments, whichever you prefer. People find a way to boost regardless they might as well let us play the modes we want.

SDS

I’m fine with the newest program being where all the daily missions and experience stars goes towards. But people should not have to get the voucher to complete an old program. You’re better off just buying the boss you want instead of buying three previous bosses.

We need more cumulative stat missions that can be completed online or offline as part of next years programs.

SDS

The only drawback to 19s system is you couldn't get the boss reward after the time ended without doing the collection.

if 20 incorporates a similar timed system but you can get main reward after it ends, and it's only bonus stuff you miss out on . I wouldn't be displeased.
I didn't care much for the timed aspect in 19 because of that- too easy to miss out and unfair to new players.

SDS

Agree.
After like the 9th or 10th inning program (after World Series) you should have the option of deciding which program to apply your stars to.

SDS

Sadly, I can't complete them to get the bosses either at this point.

This is factually incorrect. All programs have enough stars available through Moments, Conquest, and Collections to get to 300.

Every. Single. One.

Though I do heartily endorse the proposal of being able to choose which program Dailys apply towards at the end of the year.

I definitely get your point but if you look at other games like Fortnite and Modern Warfare. They have season passes and you have to level it up by a certain time and complete challenges to unlock certain items but once that season is over you will no longer be able to get them. These innings programs are doing the same thing but instead of it being a skin its a player card. Our Inning Programs are other games' Season passes.

SDS

Oh yeah. Timegated programs and event rewards that require playing multiple events can die in a fire.

Can't stand this manipulative FOMO [censored].

That is only true from the 6th inning on.

False.

You're going to make me do math when I get home and add up all the moments, aren't you?

Go ahead, add it up.
Anything before the 6th inning had to have the voucher to complete it. And the voucher cost more than the players you'd get as a reward.

So ... you could complete it.

Thanks for playing.

You could complete it for more stubs than it's worth, that doesn't count. It's a dumb way to do it. It essentially means you cannot complete it because it's not worth it to do so.

You can't not count it just because you don't like it.

It's not about not liking it, it's about you'd have to spend more than it is worth, which means essentially it's useless.

SDS

I love the Timed Programs... there are tons of programs on here that aren't timed... personally I want the monthly timed missions to return for 20... I loved those in 18 especially since you had to use different cards, play different teams on different difficulties and those missions allowed for a variety between playing against other players or just playing vs CPU and playing various modes of the game... everyone can't complete everything.

Narrator: "It counts".

The question wasn't "Is there a way to do it that gives me the warm and fuzzies inside?"
The question was "Is it possible?"

It is.
Game.
Over.

So then buy the one card you want if you don't want to spend the stubs on the voucher.
