I can understand why they're not automatically putting you on base and making you either get a hit or take a walk. But why, after I get that base hit and then have to steal a base, are they putting me up against a quick count if either 3-2 or 3-2. How in the blue h377 are you supposed to steal a base when the hitter is going to swing at the ball? Also, if I magically get a good count, why is there ALWAYS a person on the base in front of me?
Or, once in awhile my batter decides to take an extra base or two; thus putting me in ANOTHER non-stealing situation?posted in General Discussion
Let's all be realistic and possibly expect them to not be up right away. The game officially dropped today and I'm sure SDS has limited the number of people who go in office to deal with these issues in real time. I don't work or have a background in IT, but I'm pretty certain they can't do server maintenance remotely.
Rational thinking is frowned upon around these parts.
Rational thinking is nowing that on release day you would need servers that could handle 10x a normal traffic load. And investing in servers that will handle the traffic.
But no, instead of spending money on server upgrades; we'll pay millions in royalties to be able to use someone's name on a digital card.posted in Diamond Dynasty
Will you be chosen for the beta or not....today is the day
We won't find out till like the 13th right for who is chosen?
So then today is not the day...
Yes it is because no one else can enter now
So if lottery tickets sell out, but the draw isnt for a week....today is the day a winners determined?
I never said anything about a winner being determined today
Your OP was “today is the day....will you be chosen” that directly implies the participants would be chosen...that day
No it means the people are locked in today...if you choose to interpret it the other way is on you
You most definitely implied the opposite lol but not a big deal, just semantics.
Maybe should have been more clear in your OP
Ok glad to see you have these powers to tell me what I meant...
When I first saw the title to rhe poat; I said, "Wait, SDS said they weren't sending out invites till the 13th".
The title of the post was vague. Now if you would've wrote: 'Today is the last day to sign up foe the Beta. Wonder who will be chosen when they send out invites on the 13th?' that would've been interpreted differently.posted in General Discussion
I’m really on the fence about this. I play mlb because I love baseball and it’s the only video game I’m good at. But rn I just really can’t justify spending $70 on a game when there’s no guarantee of good gameplay. Really feel that I spent too much time on 19 and I don’t wanna repeat that in 20. Anyone else sharing my lack of excitement for mlb 20?
On one hand I want to play and have an elite record (with less games played) but I also just really don’t have a good feeling about gameplay after being excited for the new games for the last 2 years, only to be disappointed with the gameplay at launch
After posting my 'gameplan' or release; I'm second guessing pre-ordering.
Yes, you get to play 4 days early; but the market will be so inflated and the servers will probably be overloaded.
Plus you can still buy any version, later on, and still get a majority of the presale bonuses.
Add the fact that for the first few months SDS always 'tweaks' gameplay with patch after patch, it may be better waiting a few months.
Only downside is if you would need and early Event cards towards collections that may be overpriced later down the road Yes, I'm talking about you Gold Tony Perez and Dee Gordon.
Also, if the bring back Inning Programs, you may not be able to get any early Bosses. (But how many of the first 4-5 Inning bosses are worth having in an End Game lineup.
If 19 will still be semi active, I may wait.posted in General Discussion
Are any of the Diamonds, Finest, LS, SE, that are at QS value worth a spot in a lineup for someone just starting out?
Right now the only players I have, or are obtaining, that aren't Golds are S$ Ichiro, SS Billy Williams, SS Marichal, SS Colon, SS Wainwright, HW Harper, AS Griffey, and AS Lee.
My plan in to get up to 80-90K and buy as many QS value Diamonds as possible to lock them in and the QS them if they're not usable.
Just tryin to figure out if I want to start with the LS or Finest. Finest will get me other cards, so that's a plus.posted in Diamond Dynasty
I have no idea which two players I’m taking.
I’m curious how viable Rivera will be online.
Whichever two are selling for the most stubs. Then I'm going to sell them and pick them all back up once they drop to QS value in a few weeks.posted in General Discussion
I have 14 stars to go until I get this choice. In inning 10 I selected Mike Schmidt, but I didn't do well with him. At the time I sold him, he ws batting .240 with 60 AB. I'm looking at Pujols and Trout, but that will be a tough decision to make. I rarely get to play above All-Star, I only made it to DS once this year, so Trout's vision may not be a huge factor for me. I can't play Pujols at 1B because of Finest Bellinger. Pujols at 3B would remove Finest Lindor. Trout can easily replace Andre Dawson in my OF of Gwynn, Ichiro, Dawson, and/or Griffey Jr (Whom I for whatever reason struggle with).
I never seem to do as well with batters who have pronounced leg kicks (Carlos Gonzalez) and/or a lot of pre=swing motion (Brandon Phillips).
So I ask you forum people...what to do, what to do?
Sell, sell, sell.posted in Diamond Dynasty
No reason to buy Stubs if you can not sell duplicates. No point in locking in cards until you have all team collections finished. I get it, if they want the card to be locked but the duplicates have no value. Why would I spend more money to open packs and can not sell duplicates if I lock them in. Anything we lock in, cannot sell at all. You can not even exchange the duplicates in the player exchanges to complete missions.
Exactly. I'm not completing ANY of the collections until I get the TA packs.
And is it true that if I lock in say Mike Trout and I pull him later in the game; as it stands now, I CANT sell that duplicate Trout?
If so, they NEED to rectify this or they're going to lose a lot of the player base.posted in General Discussion
If the CPU pitcher isn't painting corners like Michelangelo; they're throwing so low in the dirt it's almost like golf.
Shoestring catches in the outfield. Catcher's throwing out runners with 80+ speed. Etc.
All this on All-Star.
If All-Star playes this way, on Ranked Seasons, I can see why people want higher difficulty.posted in Diamond Dynasty
