Affinity Points need to be Fixed

SDS

OK I'm on dynamic difficulty and was averaging All Star difficulty at mid-season break, and got the full 12 affinity points. Cool. Even before that it had changed to HOF hitting (but still AS pitching) and still averaged AS difficulty.. OK, annoying but fine.
But then I literally passed all but one moment the entire season, set the single season win record with 126 wins and somehow only got 11 pts for end of season affinity reward. SDS please fix MTO! I mean if that wasn't annoying enough, it's still on HOF hitting and I'll probably bomb in the playoffs now and end up getting less affinity points total than if I had just picked Veteran difficulty. It makes no sense. I think everyone is learning to just not pick Dynamic difficulty though because SDS clearly jacked it all up.
I would have dropped the difficulty if I hadn't just seen someone on here today say that when he did that during World Series it dropped him all the way down to Rookie.
What a joke, like how do they not think of this stuff? Honestly.

This post makes me have to rethink my next steps. I’m about to finish padres on all star. I had started dodgers on hall of fame, but had to drop to all star because I was afraid I wouldn’t make the playoffs.

So, I was just thinking I’ll try dynamic and see how it goes. Does the dynamic stop when you start the playoffs and lock in? Or is it possible you could move up and down between rounds?

I just past the All-Star break as I work my way through a Rockies season with the best record in the league. How do the playoffs work? Are those gull games or just key moments too? Does the competition (even if you're keeping it at one difficulty level) get harder?

They are mid-late inning games but you have to play all PO games.

SDS

They start around 5th or 6th inning. Most of them are tie game. Sometimes you’re up a couple. Sometimes you’re down 1 or 2. If you get to an elimination game for you (not cpu elmination), then you play the whole game. So, a wild card game would be a full game. But, if you lead a series 3-1, you would get out in the middle of the game.

Yeah I was on HOF+ by the time I got to playoffs, but it was getting too hard to win so I dropped it in order to make sure I got something. But it does drop you to beginner, so it's not much.

That is a good point because if I get down to one last win or go home game then it'd still be better to drop it to Rookie and win it all then to not move on. I'm tied 1-1 in the ALDS, and it is still on HOF for hitting. Atleast pitching is still on All Star because that is hard enough for me (and nerve racking). Also it looks like they slightly raised the affinity points for everything in MTO, for what that's worth (only went up 2 points it looks like).

SDS

Does anyone know if the plus after the difficulty means anything other than it's closer to the next difficulty?

Just save yourself the headache and don't bother with Dynamic, it's a broken [censored]

Wow, it censored T. U. R. D.

Yeah after my 1st one I just play it on Veteran. Veteran yields more than enough points if you do the whole season.
