Livestream: Diamond Dynasty, Showdown & more!

Tune in at 10 AM PT for the Diamond Dynasty Livestream from Spring Training in Arizona!

There were no twitch drops again today.

Each year I say I'm going to focus less on DD and more on my franchise and RTTS and I feel like I get sucked into DD because there really is a lot to do and it is a lot of fun. I will play a lot of less DD than I did last year but I will certainly dabble and do a lot of what was introduced today. Last year I was sucked into Ranked Seasons and having to make WS each season. I think as long as I get to WS the first season, get my nameplate I'll be content as it really is intense and causes a lot of frustration. I'd like to dive into my RTTS and Franchise more.

That being said, what I'm taking away from the stream is there is a lot of quality of life changes. The new card types will add variety from the all Sig Series teams by May. Locations on the cards are cool. Team Affinity looks GREATLY improved, I'm excited to have something to look forward to as the year goes on. I don't care about not quickly selling collected cards because I always kept those cards anyway.

Showdown is very hit or miss for me. It depends on how it's laid out because I really struggled bouncing around from Rookie to Legend difficulty last year with moments and Franchise. I do like the idea of doing offline BR type mode and I will definitely check it out. But if it's a lot of Low Difficulty challenges I may have to pass.

I LOVED the rookie to prime cards a couple of years back. It was fun way to grind for sick cards and you have a vested interest in players you like.
I HATED the longgggggg stat grinds of Immortals and the 600+ AB with 200 hits and 100HR (Made up numebrs) to get cards. I'm a little underwhelmed by how the Prestige cards are just +3 on each attribute for such a grind.

All in all the stream got me really excited and I cant wait to get started! Just need to think of a great team name and logo

Yes, I realize that but I normally get notifications on Twitch when they happen. We did not get notification on the stream on the 27th and Collin confirmed that there was an issue that day. I did get a notification on Wednesdays stream that I had received a drop. Yesterday, I did not get the notification.

God bless you casuals that play Diamond Dynasty....give SDS more money so they can work on franchise more for the real players of The Show :).

Also curious about this, since I also didn't get a Twitch drop notification after watching stream on Saturday though I'd received notifications for (nearly) all of the previous ones. It looks like SDS cleared up the issue with the 2/27 stream but I haven't seen any updates about the 3/7 stream.

Yea because playing the CPU on All Star is what "real players" do.

"Real Players" are those that have fun while playing the game, regardless of the game mode or difficulty that they choose to play on.

Dude, I'm not a casual, I haven't played on All-Star since the first year I started playing The Show back in 2011. Now when I get the game I instantly put the settings at Legend and Pitch Speeds to 10 and start practicing for maybe a week to get a baseline for Sliders. Then I start Spring Training, playing every pitch..none of that Quick Pitch business while I refine my Sliders throughout Spring Training so when Opening day begins I'm satisfied with the level I'm at and my Slider.
