A plea from a +10 year player

SDS

I have been a long time online show player (hint: a Phillies player was on the cover), and I spend countless hours building my team every year. Well except that one year when the desyncs made it unplayable.

This game absolutely needs some kind of salary Cap mode .Something to make use of all these amazing live series and legendary cards that aren't 99's.

Idk if it's an alternate ranked seasons with a cteam overalllimit or a whole new mode all together. But something!

I'm not saying replace any mode but just add. . I know I might be in the voiced opinions minority, but I think a lot of players would enjoy and would allow new players to jump in all year.

In theory it's a good idea, even a salary cap event would be neat. But unfortunately you'd just end up facing teams full of high rated future stars cards on league minimums.

unless they did it so if you were using a 98 -30 mill 97 - 27.5 mill 96 25 mill

just based salary cap off overalls of the players

I've always thought Events were good for those type of things, but they have had a couple this year that were exactly like playing RS.

I loved the silver and bronze event back in 17, but they dont put out as many silver and Bronze Flashbacks & legends like they used to.

SDS

Not a terrible idea at all.... but it sounds like you're describing events. Some events have exactly what you're saying, and then there are events where it's all the same 99 lineups you're talking about..

I’m assuming he’s not talking about a monetary salary cap but a rankings cap like in madden. Like some one suggested before 98 is worth 30 mil and so on. Madden uses a point cap system in their cap ranked. If you want Michael Vick 99 with all the All skills added or in mlb quirks it’s going to cost half your cap points or so. Madden will also fill out your roster with bronze or so players that cost nothing on your cap.

SDS

Yes, not an actual salary mode ... But where players are assigned a vlaue based on their ratings.

And yes that is what events are!! Or used to be... The events this year have not resembled this one bit..

That's just events. Sometimes they are card type restrictions, sometimes its cars overall restrictions, and sometimes it's team overall restrictions. Nothing here is a new idea.

Let's be honest here. The less this game resembles something from EA, the better.

SDS

The players union is against any form of salary cap even in a virtual setting

SDS

Madden does a cap mode. It would be a lot of fun seeing different lineups. You just make a overall cap for the team your using.

SDS

The problem with the cap system in events is that it can be circumvented. It needs to be a hard number based system rather than the soft system that weights individual attributes like they use now.

No,mlb the show 20 is a capitalist community. It's not Bernie baseball.

It is def a capitalist community, and as a result it sucks!! A gentleman prior mentioned that they used to release bronze and silver program cards. I remember this. I remember a bronze Trevor Plouffe that destroyed lefties. I remember a bronze Chris Carter that was also pretty good. These cards had specific uses in events! Those cards were fun! Unfortunately they have been rendered useless cuz everyone wants a maxed out card, and this years events really are no different than RS. I’d love to see them bring back more specialty cards. No need to eliminate anything,just would love to see those cards return. The choices are limitless on cards they could release!

I doubt you'll get a full mode. Live Series events maybe. Other than that Custom Leagues might be more along the lines of what you're looking for.

Wanna get a new mode? Stop playing events.

As long as there they see a steady stream of users accessing that play mode, it'll continue.

Do what the franchisers did and stop playing. It's how they got Online Leagues.

SDS

Ever since they changed stats to 125 all live series players except Trout become unusable every year. I’ve said all along they need a live Series event running all the time or a way to make those players relevant in this game again. It’s sad that all the best live players we get to watch are only bought to get a collection reward and forgotten after a few weeks.

SDS

Happy birthday little buddy!

This get said by a lot of people that obviously don't play EA games. If you did you would realize everything good in this game over the last few years came directly from EA or other games.

Ranked season rewards came from EA.
Xp reward paths came from EA.
Prestige is from EA.
Specialty packs came from EA.
Inning programs are fortnite battle passes with a different name lmao.

Fielding, hitting, pitching, base running....Those are what SDS is capable of doing by itself
