Sad day in the baseball world as Mr. Tiger passes away. The Hall of Famer was 85.
SDS, please give us some Kaline moments as a nice way to honor him.
So, we've all seen many threads of complaints and what people want changed for the next game. I'm curious to see what changes SDS made for MLB The Show 19 that were spot on. What changes did you like?
Some of these things will seem very minor in the grand scheme of things, but even the little touches can make a big difference.
Multiple lineups. This was much needed and I love it. Four is a good number, too, I think.
Searchable players for lineups. This was also a much-needed feature. It really cut down on the time trying to set a lineup for a specific thing, either team affinity or dailies.
Updated Conquest maps. I'm an offline player, so seeing new Conquest maps all the time has been great. I've been even more happy lately with maps coming out nearly weekly.
Inning programs. I think this is a great idea. I really liked 17's version of programs, and this feels like a version of it. Putting the best rewards at 300 stars while being able to earn beyond that is perfect. You can get the best reward without having to play every day, but if you want to play every day, you can keep getting better stuff.
Choice packs. This might be the best one. Getting a choice on who you grab in a pack is fantastic. Doing all that work or spending all those stubs just to land a guy you didn't want really stinks.
Stadium sounds. Love it. I think this should be tweaked a bit, but I like customization.
Moments. I'm a little hesitant to put Moments on here. I really hated these early on as I actually enjoyed the stat grinds (not to the MLB The Show 18 level, though). So, I didn't like the initial change, but it's grown on me. I think it's a pretty good middle ground between those who like to do stat grinds and those who cringe at the thought of it.
New Legends. I'm a bit bummed that some players didn't return for 19 (Fisk being the biggest loss for me), but I think we got better returns than we lost. I hope we can keep most of what we gained in 19 and expand on it.
How cards are revealed in packs. Great addition. Show all or one at a time. Get an animation for the better cards.
Quick sell feature in packs. I didn't touch this early on, but now that it's so late in the year, I like that I can just hit 'quick sell' when I get a bronze free agent relief pitcher. Saves me a step. I like that you can list a player to the market when opening a pack, but I think you have to see what he's currently going for, and that's not available at the moment.
What changes did you guys like in 19?
Wow, I missed that first part. That really annoys me. I also hate the no quickselling/exchanging locked card. Absolutely NO ONE asked for that.
SDS, please add some silver sunglasses or other silver equipment so we can do these daily exchanges. This is already the second time the sunglasses one has popped up. The cheapest one to exchange (worth 500 and only need 400) is the gold Under Armor that's going for 3,000 stubs. Not worth it for 2 stars.
I hope they do something this year for the offline players. Conquest is OK and Moments are, eh, but, I miss the stat grinds. They gave us a taste of it with the final Inning program by having stats in Conquest. Give us more of that! Give us a reason to keep (and use) all those All-Star, Hardware, Rookie, etc., cards.
I've now gotten this exchange FOUR times now. WTF, SDS? Get rid of this exchange or at least put some silver eyewear in the game. This would cost 3,755 stubs, minimum, to do this today. Not worth 2 stars.
You answered your own question. If its not worth it......... DON'T DO IT!
Obviously. Still, that's 8 stars I've missed out on. Hoping SDS ads silver eyewear or gets rid of this silly exchange.
The prices haven't changed all that much, at least so far.
