PLAY March To October!
I can’t tell you how much time I’ve wasted playing showdown mode, getting to the last mini boss and losing by one run and getting completely no team affinity from it. March to October is the way to go. Sure, it might take a little longer to complete a whole season, but the changes they’ve made to it this year have made this mode really cool. Plus, you get affinity points mid-season, end of season, and playoffs so no stressing over having to complete the final showdown boss, scoring 10 runs on 15 outs. Hopefully all of you that are having trouble with showdown read this and just stop wasting time on that mode.
