Agree. I think the way to fix the Prestige Diamonds would be to allow offline, but require more innings for offline play, maybe even double....it SHOULD be hard to do offline I agree

My biggest issue with TA is that last year, you could get 45 points for just collecting cards. Maybe that was a little too easy, but this year, IF you dont do showdown....it will just take forever. There should be more moments that can contribute toward affinity, and its just hilarious to me that you can only get 10 points for collecting a team set, but you then get all of the TA pack awards that are worthless cause they are locked.
I dunno......based on the Video, looks like this map actually blows the content in the Shark Map away. If it had been released at the same time, this map would be legendary as well.....its just too bad a map like this was released so late in the game cycle.....obviously it is more for new players to the game from the Holidays.....I'll take it though.....thanks SDS!!!
I agree with you, however, the majority of players who play The Show are online players, so that do need to cater to them a bit more. That said, as a completely offline player too, it seems reasonable to incorporate more optional stat missions into the programs next year. Agree with Ferris that is makes you use more cards you may not use otherwise. I actually did the 75 HR with AS cards last week, and had so much fun using AS A-Gone, Chris Davis, Jose Bautista and AS Joey Gallo again! Need more of these like with Rookies, Impact Vets, and Breakout cards!
@Collin_SDS @Victor_SDS I am usually not a complainer at all....but this is ridiculous. Absolutely ZERO reason for this to have changed base running. With all of the other issues you are having, please stop these ridiculous tweaks and just go back to the game the way it was released..
I would not care either way if they did this about them being sellable or not, however, making them sellable would do a couple of things.....1) If the suck a lot of stubs out of the VERY inflated market due to the long stub sale and 2) it would likely lower the prices on other cards as player who don't want a long grind spend their massive stub counts on this new content.
I just want a Team Affinity 2 to have something the grind for the next few month....there is STILL 3 months before THE SHOW 20, so this would be a great way to put bow and a fantastic year of content for sure....
Bonus: this gives offline only folks less to complain about when it comes to DD content.
Agreed! Tired of seeing guys who online play offline complain about DD not having enough offline options meanwhile it is suppose to be an ONLINE mode.
exactly tell the offline nerds to shut their yap they got enough to play with in the sandbox no one wants a repeat of 18 400 saves to get a card
What's your issue with online players my man. I used to have a lot of respect for your posts, but trashing offline players ain't cool. Just because there are people who like to play and collect in DD offline, doesn't make you any better than them.
if you read the whole thread, NFL and I spoke with respect and candidly about our differing views - i didn't trash anybody for the umpteenth time but moreso the whiney boi concept that skittles through here now and again. none of which had to do with anyone in particular here - see you in 2020 the game looks beauty
Fair enough. There more than enough room for all of us in this game online and offline. I prefer to play offline because I just don't like a lot of the crazy game play that some managers bring....and the pausing and the lagging. I'm also not very good....but enjoy the game play and collecting. I hoping for a bit more stat missions in '20 than we had in '19 (not like 18 that's for sure) and the game looks like it will be great. Cheers...and thanks for the civil and nice response.
it's going to be really interesting to see what the "Infinity" Conquest Map is. Will it be a Map that you an continue to play over and over, generating 30 Program stars each time it's completed? I hope so.
This is not a thread about anything involving online game play/rewards. It is also not meant to be an online vs offline thread, just looking for some opinions..
Offline /Casual Players. Curious as to your thoughts this far on this years game and specifically....Diamond Dynasty only. To me, while we have the usually things for offline like Conquest Maps, it has been made so difficult for offline only players to obtain program stars, no ability to get Red Diamonds, Team Affinity now requires that you play Showdown, which seems very difficult for the casual players and even harder now with the new patch
I am a player who like grinding stats for cards and don't mind more of a grind to do it than it is for online players (totally good with that) but it just seems like SDS has completely whiffed this year on almost anything to offline DD players. And now is sounds like XP has been reduced offline and online, making the XP reward path even more difficult.
Curious as to your thoughts...

Great stuff man. All great advice, especially grinding out the Team Affinities so you have different teams each time as well. Only thing I do different, is that I don't EVER Bunt to save time. Reason is that I want the extra XP for scoring runs, for the XP reward path, otherwise spot on to the way I do it as well, and I've done it now 6 times as well.
It is very possible that there will be no MLB season this year. So, why would anyone invest?
Very true. My guess would be if this stretches into July, that the 2020 MLB season could evolve into becoming a 30 team College World Series/Tournament like format, where all teams participate. It would be very interesting. I hope i am wrong, but at some point, the season would become to short so make much of a difference. A round robin/College World Series format would be the most fair way and provide some great sports viewing.
At this point with the lockdowns/stay at home and no large gathering orders currently in place across the nation, it is likely that the earliest we'd even see baseball is looking like early late June or early July. And IF that even happens, it will require some training time along with having to play games potentially at neutral sites and maybe even having teams play in front of little fans at spring training facilities. I'm not sure id be willing to tie up stubs in investment when players wont even have much time to improve their rating.
Nice team man. I dunno. That Willie McCovey card sure would look nice for you at 1B. But I think i'd take Kluber over Fingers if that's the choice.
Well, it least its not purple again. I bought the crazy expensive socks last year because they were black just so I did not have to see the purple anymore! LOL! I don't mind this years color of the gold sox so much, but I get your frustration after you work hard to create your own look with uni's
Okay whoever thinks it is okay to go up in the market by 100 or 1000 stub intervals is completely stupid. The market works like an auction, the idea of an auction is to get your item for the cheapest possible!!! WHO WANTS TO SPEND 1000 MORE STUBS?!? Especially when those 1000 stubs can go to another player! Go up in 1-10 stub intervals!
Question: How does this sound??
"Artifact being sold, starting offer?"
"I'll start the bid at 5 dollars"
"5 dollars going once, twice.."
"10 dollars going once, twice.."
"200 going once, twice.."
This is literally the stupidest thing I have ever seen! AND it is happening on the community market as we speak. Please, that card you are selling is more valuable and you lose stubs or that card you're buying is not worth 100 or 1000 stubs more then what it is already at. Go up in 1 stub intervals, that is all I ask! PLEASE!
Sometimes I want a player immediately. I will bud up so I don’t have to wait. Sometimes I just want to sell my card between buy now and sell now price. So I’ll list it a lot cheaper.
Some of us like playing the game and not spending as much time in the auction house. I learned years ago that you don’t get better at the game spending too much time in the auction house. If someone keeps undercutting my price. I tank the value because I don’t have time for flippers.
This. Sometimes you just get tired of undercutting by 1 stub each time and you just want to get rid of the card fast.
