The three features that received the most L's in todays stream

  1. Prestige Diamonds can only be earned by grinding stats online
  2. If you collect a card then that card is completely unsellable. No quick selling.
  3. Three Batter minimum applies in BR (I don't play BR and this seems extreme even to me)

Overall, I loved all the new stuff and it pushed me forward to pre-order. The first one is really the only one that kind of tilted me a little.

I agree those were the big 3, maybe only 3 L's. The rest I thought was fantastic.

The collection one doesn't really bother me all that much. The Prestige Diamonds being locked behind online grinds irked me though. Online already basically had a monopoly on BR rewards, why give them another with this?

The biggest L was not being able to even quick sell collected cards. The other 2 don't bother me so much. Mostly because I play online anyway

#1 is going to cause a lot more people to complain about dashboarders...

But at least many of the online rewards are sellable now. Correct? So you have a chance to buy them. The prestige ones are not sellable.

Maybe the guy that started that other thread was right lol

Agree. I think the way to fix the Prestige Diamonds would be to allow offline, but require more innings for offline play, maybe even double....it SHOULD be hard to do offline I agree

Not quick selling is huge in 19 you could get the collections done for around 500k with the proper plan. Now it’s easily going to be a million+ all year long

I agree with this. The option should be available for both, but just have offline require more stats.

What does “online” vs. “offline” mean exactly?

Online is playing against other people, such as in BR, RS, and events.

Offline is playing against the CPU, such as conquest and moments.

Stats for the prestige diamonds need to be accumulated in online play against other players. You can not earn them playing the CPU

In DD it means:
Online = vs real people (except extended play)
Offline = vs CPU

The prestige thing is fine. They would be too easy to get offline. Besides, in order to get them you have to lock in the original and the prestige isn’t sellable either.

Lets be honest. The average player did not have a chance to buy most BR 12-0 Rewards without spending real money or stripping their squad down to the bare minimum

Then make the offline grind more difficult. Make offline players do the entire season instead

I only caught a tiny part of the stream, but I did see them talking about the prestige diamonds and how they were using them to respond to the requests for the return of some of the stat grinds. Except that in my experience, 95+% of the people asking for stat grinds were offline players looking for more to do than just play Conquest over and over.

As someone looking for better things to do with my DD collection without having to play H2H, was there anything new in this stream?

Yup, I swear you would think that they learned that on 17. So far I dont care about those 3 players, but if they have a Reds Prestige card, I'm going to be pissed.

No.

Unless they incorporate that option more into Moments, but I would not hold my breath
