Team Affinity games

Never played this mode this year. And I didn't hear anything mentioned in the stream; but do you get Stars towards the Innings Programs.

In MTO you do get program stars for playing. In terms of stars per time, though, it is probably low since you might only play 1 inning and not get a star and then have several loading screens before you play again.

I'm not asking about innings for single missions. Im asking if I'll get any Prpgram Stars for playing MTO.

19 no. 20 they said you earn stars for the inning program in any mode you earn xp, so I am not sure,but it looks like it.

I feel like people are merging Team Affinity and March to October here.

In team Affinity you will earn stars for playing. So if you put players from that team in your lineup and play (conquest, ranked seasons, events, even vs CPU i believe) then you will earn stars for playing games. You would also maybe earn a few minimal stars doing the Team Affinity moments.

Finishing March to October is just one method of earning points for team affinity. In MTO you will earn program stars for playing but team affinity points are earned based on the difficulty you play at and how deep you make it into the run. It does not count innings played with players in that mode.

Ok. So here is a scenario.

I'm dont want to play H2H, other than BR (when I need a Daily completed that will get my more than 2 Stars) and Events. I dont want to jump into RS until I get a decent team.

That being said; can I just play the asssigned Conquest map(s), assigned Moments, assigned Showdown(s), and then play MTO to gather the remaining Program Stars needed to get me to atleast 300 stars?

Or will I have to play some Play vs CPU games to get what I need?

Or if I do NOTHING but MTO, will I get Program Stars towards the Inning Programs?

Playing vs. CPU isn't required for anything; you accumulate stars for the newest program by playing the game in any mode, even Franchise and Road to the Show.

Yes, you will.

We don't know yet whether we will need to sneak in some Play vs CPU to earn extra points. It all depends on how many offline style missions that they add to the Inning Programs. Last year, especially in the early missions I had to grind some vs the CPU (although I just redid the main Conquest map as I was at least working towards another 10 pack that way). I also only play offline.

MTO, I would think, should earn you roughly the same number of stars for simply playing the games that you would get playing the same number of innings in Play vs CPU. It may take 3 or 4 MTO games to equal one full 9 inning vs CPU game since MTO games are not full games for the most part.
