What do you want in RTTS 20

So in my opinion RTTS could use more work. For example as a young player as 18 years old let us have the option to play some games in high school or even college because the showcase get's boring after a while. Next, I feel for the customization of the player is good but it could be great. What I mean by this is the walking up the batter box let us change the way we step into the box and take some practice swings not the same ones we get every year. Also with the customization part let us have tattoo's and be able to have chains untucked and just loose cut sleeves etc just take the customization to the next level. The thrid one i have is the offseason. In my opinion I wish we could go train with friends or even a HOF fielder and get xp or even signature moves that HOF player was known for bc the offseason is where players are made and in RTTS we just sim it. The last request is when you get called up it should be better. Like have your family there and have them shown and have the stadium announcer say it's your first at bat etc.
Thanks guys

Option to do mini game or the on field version of the same training. Mini games were cool but when i play RTTS i want the bat in my hand so i get a feel for my player as his attributes increase.

I would like to see a revamp to contracts. Like as of right now, there is really no reason to go for the big bucks in the game. An idea is maybe for every $1,000 you get in your contract, you get 100 stubs, in order to prevent people from simulaying RTTS to get stubs, you must play at least 81 games, or a way to use your contract money in game would be easier.

I don't agree with the stubs, but i would like to see contract money spendable in the RTTS world for sure.

Perhaps start with a ragged ol glove, but as you get money you can purchase a glove rather than using the gloves and other stuff that is so high priced on the market. Or some sort of progression kinda like the XP rewards where u get an equipment choice pack perhaps?

I agree with the opinions that contracts should mean way more. I think that having equipment for RTTS separated from DD like instead of being able to buy better equipment with Stubs you have to make more money to get better gear in RTTS. I also would love to see more controllable moments like post game interviews and stuff like that. Thank you guys for the input

  1. More fun for high-end game.
    For now, the most fun comes from the growing process from low skills developing to become an elite player. But after reaching OVR 90 or so, the game starts to feel like a bit plain. There should be more exciting plays for high attributes player. More showtime play for fielders, and more ridiculous nasty pitches for pitchers to show off (maybe introducing Bullet-time like camera angle to present such pitches)
  2. At least overhaul the replay glitch.
    Floating bat is the most common glitch in instant replay.

I would love to see them have a NBA 2K like My Player mode where you can buy you play out a story to get to the league. We need more options for swag. 2K does a great job of getting Nike, UA, Adidas, and other companies when it comes to having options for your player. If you can get all of the equipment companies to go for it this game would really sell. Having those options is the reason why 2K makes so much money.

There is too much stuff now. I just had a player that there was 4 cut scenes between appearances. The coach asked if I wanted to work on my game, then got the cap/attribute increase. then personality thing with a team mate. then lastly the coach coming in to "check on me" giving me 2x on some attributes. We certainly don't need more junk added to the game. I want to PLAY BASEBALL.

Thank you!!!! Rtts in MLB The Show 19 has been atrocious with cut scenes and even while playing a game the challenge cut scenes stop you from enjoying the gameplay. I want to be able to play a game without the extra stuff. Just give us training points back, let us talk to our agent (get traded, being released, changing to any position) and call it a day.

I agree. Contracts, awards, world series rings, and breaking records need to mean something. These things are vital to a players career. I would like to see more emphasis on these accomplishments. Getting a big contract is a big deal (maybe use mlb network to do a segment on the big contract our player scored). Awards and world series rings should be showed in a display case or something. Breaking records should show which player you surpassed, not just a total number of the most rbi's, homeruns, and basehits. Show every player who has the top 20 records for these categories.

How about having a one-pitch mode if you want to be on the field or watching your teammates from the dugout but don't want to watch every pitch, just the pitch that results in an action. I want to be more involved in the game, especially when I get to the majors, but not have to sit through each pitch.

Also, I like being able to choose a team to play for but why does that option disappear if you decide to play college ball? Or is possible to go back to college for x amount of years and still pick your team and I missed that option?

Great idea.

I just want to go back to the 17 progression system. Won't be buying a new version until then

I really hope your idea is considered and introduced. Again, not too hard to put in and would be awesome for those who want it, while those who don't want it can leave it turned off and don't even need to know it's there.

There are a few things I would love to see in RTTS however the only one that really grinds on me and is the reason I don't play it much anymore is that you get called up way too fast. Just fix that and I'll be happy

I just want the option to talk to an agent or manager on MY time. I was drafted as a SS for the Indians, (i was hoping to transfer to 2nd or 3rd whatever they needed) but they traded me because I wouldn't play LF. Fine cool, well my new team also had Corey Seager, who evolved into one of the best SS, so they had me be third. Well after a couple years, Seager got bad and retired, and now there's a HUGE hole at SS. I wanna play SS and the backup third baseman is actually better than our starting SS, so it would objectively help the team, but management won't let it happen, and I noticed this hole just after my agent called me, so now I gotta wait a whole cycle of cutscenes before getting back to SS. I should also get to ask specific teams to give offers for FA and ask to trade to specific teams I wanna eventually get back to CLE, and be the SS there.

the game should be able to decide how the in game (live players) get into the HOF, and place them on the correct team. For example, Votto in my game retired as a red, got in as a red, cool. But Pujols retired as an Angel and got in as an angel? Altuve retired after one year of FA and didn't get assigned a team. the game lets you browse team achievements and so many teams have the wrong players and lots don't have any just because guys like King Felix, Pujols, Altuve retire on different teams AFTER they make their HOF case.
For reference on what I mean, this would be like if Griffey Jr got in as a Red, we all know that's not the case

  1. I want the ability to pick up my cell phone and call my agent if I want to discuss a trade or position change.

  2. I want Agents to be meaningful. Give us a system where there are multiple Agents out there with different specialties. You can get the better Agents if you are a top player, and those agents would have more pull when trying to get you traded or moved to a new position.

  3. I want a picture mode where we can create our own baseball card. This is actually pretty simple. The game already does this in post-game when you win player of the game. I just would like to see it expanded so that you can use the card as a frame and take in-game pics during the Replay, or even add some poses to use in a separate mode. This card then shows up on your Player Card, instead of it being a [censored] grey shadow. Let us create a new card each season throughout our RTTS career and store them in a Gallery. Would be neat to go back and see your cards for the different teams you played for.

  4. Give us a legit trophy room. Winning any awards right now is kind of a buzz kill. I want a room with meaningful game balls, jerseys, bats, gloves, trophies and maybe even posters, newspaper articles, World Series rings, etc. Bonus points if I'm able to move stuff around and have some input on customizing it.

  5. They've taken a step in the right direction with relationships being impacted on the field. They need to do the same thing with rivals though. Maybe this was mentioned, but I didn't see it. If I get beaned by a pitcher, our rivalry should go up. If I hit a walkoff HR in Yankee Stadium, my rivalry should go up for the whole team. The Away crowd should react according to my Rival status with that team. If I'm an unknown, they don't need to be booing me every at-bat. If I destroy them on a regular basis, they should be near hostile when I come to the plate.

  6. If I retire and make the Hall of Fame, make a big deal out of it! Generate a HOF plaque and maybe even a Cooperstown area for your memorabilia. You can take a screenshot or two and immortalize your player. Bonus points if you can make this area persistent among all of your characters.

How about when they show the manager in the dugout or the 3B coach giving signs that we are told what they mean. Right now the signs mean nothing and are a total waste. Instead of that big sign that pops up that says "manager says steal the base" you actually see the sign for it or hit and run or when batting to bunt etc

I think RTTS should be way more RPGish like other's have said. 2K has a great thing going in the beginning of their MyCareer modes, but even it gets stale and things stop happening.

I get that MLB is a much longer grind, so maybe not have something eventful for every single game, but make it feel more like an immersion than a simulation outside of the gameplay.

Then during the gameplay, there is so much they can do. Interactions with teammates/coaches, moments where your player is featured by the announcers/video boards. Etc.

Did you watch the stream about RTTS? They said they were going to have those things this year
