Question About Leagues

For the last few years, play with friends has not counted towards stat missions and team affinities. Will custom leagues count towards these things this year?

I'd venture to say no, because even the stats themselves get reset every season in that league, but that's just a guess.

But it's online and if you set it as dd teams, what's the incentive? I mean, rs already provides a competitive online mode, with all the benefits of achieving missions and affinities, same with br.

I would see it as a massive negative if those stats don't count to at least team affinities.

@Collin_SDS or @Victor_SDS

Will they count?

No because there are too many cheaters out there that would match up with friends and abuse the system and accumulate the stats in a matter of a couple hours. The stats count in ranked, br and events because the matchups are random.

So why would I waste my time with leagues when I can simply play br or rs?

I agree, but also people find loopholes, those people make it suck for the rest of us.
If it counted for affinity, two friends create a league, play each other, and just leave the game running, so it just auto pitches and strikes them out over and over. They come back a couple hours later and they've done 50 innings x 9, so 450 innings total accumulated just because they could match up with their friends and it counted.

It's sad that people are that [censored] up.
I can see why it won't, but you and I both know that the league we have joined is not going to pad stats.

Just ruins it for those who want to play the right way.
