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.
Please don't ask for more stuff. They haven't even finished with the stuff they added already. Like the cell phone/agent thing. Newsflash cell phones are used for outgoing calls also. Social media that does nothing and personality that is awful. Like complimenting an AL RP about his batting ah duh and when you advance everything on all personalities is filled so what personality are you supposed to be? Either finish these thing or eliminate them and let's get back to playing BASEBALL. If you are going to have interaction with teammates then have a voice like in other games. If you are going to restrict my player type then restrict personality to the one I chose. For those that want the salary to mean something let me remind you this is a fantasy mode. The money is fantasy!!
Years ago a game system cost$89 and the games were $19.95 and when they were made they didn't need patching. This game is $60-100 depending on which level you buy and we have had 6 patches in the first month. That tells me that craftsmanship and quality has gone right down the toilet. As far as how long anyone has been gaming, I started with the Atari. That is the original first home gaming system ever made.
I have mentioned this problem every year for 10 years and still not fixed. I have a SS and when fielding comes on many time I end up watching a hit to the right side past the 2B, a line drive over my head, or just aother player making the play. Also many times when there is a man on 1B and less then 2 outs he will attempt to steal second, I run to the bag and the throw is late. First I don't want to watch baseball I want to PLAY BASEBALL. second how about a little less than 99% success rate for CPU players stealing.
It is a matter of what is a baseball video game about. i come from the old school that it was to play baseball. The idea that you have to collect virtual cards and compete against other video gamers is fun for some but not all. Some of old timers don't have the abilities with a video game that the younger set have. So why should we be spending our SS check for stuff just to be humiliated and insulted by younger guys that are only interested in winning? When I first started playing MLBTS there was no DD, card collecting or stubs. It was all about playing baseball and enjoying yourself. I don't get into the garbage in this game so that is why after this year I am done. Too bad that they lose a long time (12 years) customer. It would be ok if they would make the other modes enjoyable but they have ruined them to try to get everyone to do the collecting and online stuff that makes them more money. The fact that they need to patch every week shows that the game is garbage.
That is why I refuse to play online. I don't deal well with obnoxious people.
I play RTTS exclusively so I sell everything that is not used in that mode. I usually buy only gold equipment when the game first comes out but as time goes by the prices come down and I have built up a stockpile of stubs so then I buy diamond equipment

I reported a bug a while ago about my SS running past 2B and going all the way to stands and sometimes he will move about 2 steps and gets the throw from the catcher. The other thing that bothers me that I did not report is that my SS gets to the bag and the throw is late most of the time
Sometimes my player and a base coach have the same jersey number but I don’t accuse SDS of lacking baseball knowledge. How bloop singles are scored on the other hand...
But you just proved my point in either they don't know that 2 people on the same team can't have the same number or they just don't care about realism as much as they say they do.
I know it is difficult to start over when you have put so much time into it but I usually start over when the BS first begins. RTTS is supposed to be what it is like for a real ball player. Most draftees don't ever make it to MLB in real life. So I would assume that SDS has programmed in that sometimes your player won't make it. As far as the logic in that your guy is better than the ones on the team, well I have found over the last 12 years that the AI management makes no sense.
