Showdown - Adding to Bench

SDS

Is there a way if drafting a new player after winning a showdown mission that I can add somebody directly to the bench? For example, I get a better SS. I then replace my current SS but I can't hit X next to one of my bench players in order to sub him with the old SS. Instead of have to switch positions between the starter and the bench guy I need to replace before I can put in the new starting player.

Sorry if this sounds too confusing but there needs to be a way I can click X on a bench player and see all of my available players not being used.

Go to manage lineup

This needs an improvement for sure. Editing lineups is a lil wonky in this new mode. Shouldnt be that time consuming and shouldnt feel like a puzzle just to add the new guys to your lineup

Yes I click manage lineup. That's where my fielders by position are on the left and the lineup is on the right. I then scroll down my lineup to the bench, hit X and nothing happens. I can't replace my bench with other players that are in my roster. Or is there another spot I'm not seeing?

Bruh it's the same as your regular lineup, hit square to move.

I can't move people who aren't starting anywhere yet. For example. Let's say showdown gives me a silver player and I take Hoskins just for bench to sub for the pitcher in the main mission. I can't move him to the bench. I have to take the guy who I want to replace, move him to C or whatever, then have Hoskins sub for him at C, then sub Hoskins on the bench back for the C.

Just use the bench section below the field lineup screen. Don’t really understand how you could be having trouble with this.

You can't do it from the lineup part, highlight on the catcher the press down it will take you to the bench players.

Because I can't click on a player on a bench and pick a player that's now in the roster but not on the bench like I can with my DD lineup.

You draft a team. You do a mission. You draft a new player. You want that new player to be on the bench, not to start. There's not a one-step method to do this.

You literally just go to the bench section below the lineup on the field, and sub in whoever you want.

I click X and nothing happens. What should happen, like last year on your DD screen, is I can substitute all of my available players that are in my inventory that not already starting or on the bench.

SDS

I see now. They made the field ultra large so you can actually move all the way down to see the bench on the field screen. This is definitely not clear.

Like I said, just highlight the catcher on the field, and press down. Then just sub out whoever you want. It’s the same for DD lineups too.

You’re making this way, way more complicated than it actually is lol

You cant add players to bench. Has to be directly to primary position. Unless its affecting people differently

Edit: I see what your saying, either way it could be more streamlined and an easy improvement

I don’t see what’s wrong with it as is. Seems simple and straightforward enough to me.
