Horrible presentation of franchise

Developers preview of franchise sucked. Having real minor league rosters is awesome!!! I love that. It’s makes it a win. The rest was boring with zero effort or depth. I’d rather have 10 uniform options with mix and matching like we can already do with the MLB teams, then just ONE home and away option. Oh and my stadium is a minor league stadium? Uh no thanks. Classic? No I hate those too. I want to replicate modern times. Is the Twins logos still going to be in their classic dome? If I play in Phillies stadium is their [censored] everywhere? Deal breaker. Like I said having minor league rosters makes this year a win. Don’t half [censored] relocation and rebranding and act like it’s now in the game. Just say we put in 30% of rebranding and will get to the rest with the next generation console. I don’t expect stadium creator. How about 3 new modern options to choose and have logos displayed in predetermined spots. This feels like I mowed my lawn but just did half of it. Love this game but today frustrated me just because they teased me. What about all the bugs in the mode. Those fixed? Then it’s and bolts of franchise seem to be not touched. We wouldn’t know because the dude spent 5 minutes on pasting logos from the vault to your team. Fix the bugs 1st. Make franchise more immersive. Creat a manager mode!! Hmm weird. Done!

I personally I’m extremely disappointed but also semi excited. I can see created all time teams , I wish there was an option to add more teams so if we want a bigger league we could add like the Expos and maybe another team to Franchise. Having to replace teams is a waste. Also why are we always using a cap of 15 players in single A. What if I wanted to play a single A game, I don’t have a chance to do so. I don’t see the point in having these teams if they can’t be complete. Logos are not exciting but barely touching Franchise is sad because you want to spend all your time ripping people off with all of the new minor league players cards . People will really be mad paying for a pack of all minor leaguers. I was hoping for some stadium customization. Other games did it so they can’t complain about memory restrictions, it’s just not important to them. Minor league players were the same thing but they found a way to out source the work for them. The more years go by the more the show is becoming like Madden as no one challenges them in games.

Yep, I knew create a stadium was not going to be in, it would have been advertised, but I had hoped they would put in a couple MLB like stadiums to switch to when relocating. This makes relocating a team totally pointless. Even rebranding is stupid if your stadium has logos or team name on it. The only hope is this is laying the ground work for future improvements to this feature. Then again no mention of that in the stream, like sorry no create a stadium just yet, or hopefully next year we will get some more stadiums. This is basically taking the DD team creator and putting it on front end and in Franchise, something that should have been done years ago.

I was buying 20 no matter what, but it appears that DD will be my focus again, because that is obviously the only mode that they care about.

This [censored] is them porting the feature over from DD. Little to no effort and in their minds, they knew people would be happy with it since "it's a step in the right direction"

Franchise guys have been waiting 3 years for any kind of major update and we get some garbage ported from their cash cow mode. SMH. I'm not fully riding this game off yet. I'm going to wait and see what March to October has in store. (I have zero interest in the "changes to RTTS) But unless it multiple seasons, full roster control, draft etc. (which I highly doubt) I won't be buying this game. At least not at launch and not new. I'll wait until a used copy pops up on ebay or something. My money will not be supporting a studio that is trending the direction of EA Sports.

This is the problem. This is what makes me so annoyed. This is exactly what these companies want. Give us bare bones on the other modes, which pretty much forces us into playing a mode that is basically gambling. Sure they aren't as bad as EA. But MUT has been around a lot longer. SDS will get there.

I agree, I didnt buy 19 for this reason. Until I see drastic improvements. I am on the every other year purchase. Once I get to the end of the year and DD is dying out and SDS starts work on 21, I'll then play franchise mode on 20 through next year and buy 22.

As most people are, I'm disappointed in the relocation options. I was figured it would be something along the lines of what EA Sports uses for Madden and NHL - templates of a few stadiums/arenas, possible change colors, etc.

It's great that the minor leaguers are being incorporated into the game, but underwhelming overall.

I'm really close to doing the same. I've bought every MLB The Show for at least the last 6-7 years. But this year, I might just skip it. I'm waiting to see what was done to March to October. That mode showed promised last year. But it needs to blow me away before I even consider buying the new one. This mean's full roster control, being able to start with any roster I want. (updated) being able to do multiple seasons, better presentation etc.

I personally hate DD. I'll play some of the single player challenges and whatnot. But I have zero desire to play online against people. Especially in sports game. And when you consider the fact that a lot of people spend real money to upgrade their team.

Yeah, you sound like a perfect example of someone who should not buy every year. I hate H2H play, so I dont get as much out of DD as others.

I buy every year to support SDS. And because I want the updated features and roster. But frankly, I feel they are becoming more and more like EA. Ignore the single player aspect and try and force everyone to play DD. Make it such a grind that people feel the need to spend the extra money to upgrade.

Well it's been clear to me the past 5 years that all other modes have taken a backseat to DD, that is something I can't just blindly support each year.

Meanwhile, I'm sitting here wishing I could enjoy Diamond Dynasty. I've never cared for Franchise mode, but I find DD's manner of acquiring and progressing your team to be much more interesting and entertaining than the dry-as-a-bone bureaucracy of being a GM in Franchise. But since I don't like playing online, I'm not invited.

Those are some good ideas to make M2O more engaging for those of us that don't care for the card rewards.

Let's hope they've done the roster control - in order to do that the rewards would need to be based on time spent playing and not winning the World Series which would be fine. Already it looks like they are rewarding team affinity points along the way which is an excellent start.

The multiple seasons is a great idea as well, it would need to sacrifice the opening video clip each subsequent year though, which is also fine.

Yeah I don't know what the rewards were last year. I played one season with my Mets and half a season with Arizona and I got bored with the mode. So I'm perfectly fine with them doing away with them. Probably just banners and other pointless things anyways. Or for those who are interested, I don't see why it can't win the WS still. Or have a player win ROTY, win this award, hit X number of homeruns. Plenty of ways to still get them in there.

Huh? I acquired the best team I have ever been able to acquired in DD in the 2019 version and I played a total of maybe 3 Battle Royale games. Between the Conquest Maps and the Moments this past year was the easiest year of all to enjoy DD offline.

How about 3 new modern options to choose and have logos displayed in predetermined spots. This feels like I mowed my lawn but just did half of it. Love this game but today frustrated me just because they teased me. What about all the bugs in the mode. Those fixed? Then it’s and bolts of franchise seem to be not touched. We wouldn’t know because the dude spent 5 minutes on pasting logos from the vault to your team. Fix the bugs 1st. Make franchise more immersive. Creat a manager mode!! Hmm weird. Done!

Yep, I knew create a stadium was not going to be in, it would have been advertised, but I had hoped they would put in a couple MLB like stadiums to switch to when relocating. This makes relocating a team totally pointless. Even rebranding is stupid if your stadium has logos or team name on it. The only hope is this is laying the ground work for future improvements to this feature. Then again no mention of that in the stream, like sorry no create a stadium just yet, or hopefully next year we will get some more stadiums. This is basically taking the DD team creator and putting it on front end and in Franchise, something that should have been done years ago.

I was buying 20 no matter what, but it appears that DD will be my focus again, because that is obviously the only mode that they care about.

This is the problem. This is what makes me so annoyed. This is exactly what these companies want. Give us bare bones on the other modes, which pretty much forces us into playing a mode that is basically gambling. Sure they aren't as bad as EA. But MUT has been around a lot longer. SDS will get there.

I agree, I didnt buy 19 for this reason. Until I see drastic improvements. I am on the every other year purchase. Once I get to the end of the year and DD is dying out and SDS starts work on 21, I'll then play franchise mode on 20 through next year and buy 22.

I'm really close to doing the same. I've bought every MLB The Show for at least the last 6-7 years. But this year, I might just skip it. I'm waiting to see what was done to March to October. That mode showed promised last year. But it needs to blow me away before I even consider buying the new one. This mean's full roster control, being able to start with any roster I want. (updated) being able to do multiple seasons, better presentation etc.

I personally hate DD. I'll play some of the single player challenges and whatnot. But I have zero desire to play online against people. Especially in sports game. And when you consider the fact that a lot of people spend real money to upgrade their team.

Yeah, you sound like a perfect example of someone who should not buy every year. I hate H2H play, so I dont get as much out of DD as others.

I buy every year to support SDS. And because I want the updated features and roster. But frankly, I feel they are becoming more and more like EA. Ignore the single player aspect and try and force everyone to play DD. Make it such a grind that people feel the need to spend the extra money to upgrade.

This was probably the easiest year ever to get a competitive team without grinding or spending money.

Huh? I acquired the best team I have ever been able to acquired in DD in the 2019 version and I played a total of maybe 3 Battle Royale games. Between the Conquest Maps and the Moments this past year was the easiest year of all to enjoy DD offline.

I don't like Moments since

  • The overwhelming majority don't involve my DD team
  • They're isolated and inorganic do-this-and-nothing-else tasks. I don't find that satisfying

Conquest, no matter how many maps get added, is nothing but three-inning road games. I don't like three-inning games, let alone exclusively away ones where I have zero use for my stadium cards and never see my home uniforms.

Play vs. CPU is largely pointless because the only tangible things you can accomplish are the uninteresting background tasks that are XP, program stars and TA innings. There's no challenge, no excitement in accruing those compared to most of the stat missions of 17 and 18.

What I want is something that's more like an offline counterpart to Ranked Seasons - one with proper nine-inning games that is also a longer-term marathon the way a real baseball season is.

How can anybody not like the ability to rebrand your team and create your own uniforms?

I think what people are upset about is the lack of effort involved. This exact functionality has existed in DD for years and I agree with the folks who are upset and feel insulted that the big marketing push has been "wow, look at this great new feature we added to franchise" when it really should have existed at least as long as it's been in DD.

My #1 was to be able to do this. I agree it should have existed previously but I glad it exists now.
