Crazy ideas for MLB the show 21.

SDS

Aside from the standard gameplay upgrades and fixes everyone wants, what is some other stuff you think could be done? You can have the serious pro inspired game but also have more fun and personalized options for online multiplayer

  1. Players who played the previous year can choose 1 card to bring over to the new game and have from day one.

  2. Prestige stats can be done offline against the CPU but will only count for games played on HOF or Legend.

  3. Have a 2 vs. 2 BR option to play with a friend on headsets.
    -For the D pitching and fielding alternate each inning. 1 player would control the pitcher only, the other player controls the fielders.
    -For hitting you alternate batters.

You build the team and set lineups together. Players are color coded (I'm blue squad, partner is red squad) blue and red batters are alternated and I hit with my picks, the blue squad.

  1. Online head to head HRD

  2. Design you're own stadium/park with some out there fun choices and design options such as desert island, top of a mountain, cornfield like field of dreams, a dome on the moon or Mars etc... Ps5 should be able to handle this much better than the 4.

  3. Maybe not for 21, but make it VR headset compatible for a really immersive experience.

I like the enthusiasm but none of this has even a stones throw shot in hell of happening. I think the only one that I could see happening is you’re idea for a h2h HRD. That would be fun. How about having stubs carry over? That would be a game changer. Probably would cause a serious inflation issue unless they made stubs harder to obtain.

SDS

Yeah prestige grind won’t ever happen offline. It would take away from ranked, events and br

SDS

Here’s a wild a$$ idea, fix the connection issues, fielding, and hitting for online play.

SDS

2, 3, and 5 would all be great.

I’d also like to see online Franchise mode return, particularly with 3 and 5.. I spent years playing franchise on the same couch as my buddy. We would be the same team and choose pitchers/batters to control for the duration, passing off the controller depending on who was pitching or batting. So much fun.

I think you're wrong. People who play majority online won't all of a sudden start playing majority offline because of prestige. I think this is another "online players are better than offline players, so they should be treated special by SDS" BS remark.

No its just a statement showing that SDS does cater to online players. I love playing conquest, especially the RIB conquest. It’s the perfect grind for prestige off line

SDS

My crazy idea is to stop locking content and program stars behind Moments/Showdown and come up with ways to let me use the team I've spent time and money on to do it instead.

Theres MORE than enough catering to the online players, the prestige grind should be open to all.

I concur, but there must be a high enough bar for competition that it means something, thus HOF or above.

Agreed or we’ll see more of what happened in 18. Grinding 9 inning games vs the rockies at Coors. Its a grind getting hits, runs and RBI’s online with a certain player. Its crazy easy vs CPU

Truth, imagine how easy it would be to prestige them all doing that. Stupid easy handouts.

Not that they're necessarily better, but they ARE selling a product (online subscriptions) and in order to justify the expense for the consumer, they've got to incentive the purchase.

As a mostly-offliner, it goes against my own interests to recognize that the mostly onliners should be rewarded. But I do understand why.
