In 19 they only released enough content in most innings that you could not go back and earn those inning bosses after the fact unless you actually did the collection of the previous inning bosses. This year will they give us enough points to earn across the different modes to pull it off without needing to do the collection?
The second question is when they kept making the point on play how you want to play. If I am an offline player are there enough points between Moments, Showdown and Inning specific Conquest maps to get to the boss? Last year, especially in the early innings I wound up doing meaningless Conquest runs to just to earn the extra points I needed.
