Someone else said this so please take credit if it was you. But it’s completely accurate
SDS takes away the things we as a community enjoy before fixing the real issues with the game.

One example, HR derby used to give you a good XP amount. While some may say, it’s unfair cuz that person is getting a ton of XP. My response is. If you want to sit down and play HR derby for 5 hours. You should be rewarded with XP. Like home run derby isn’t that fun. It’s tedious. So if you’re gonna put in the work and do that for 5 hours or whatever it may be. You should be rewarded. And this is coming from someone who didn’t even use that method

SDS

For the people who complete collections and play the DD mode in versus.. showdown.. conquest.. and get the XP by earning it. Playing HR Derby for all of your XP shouldn't reward you with cards and other rewards that are not meant to be obtained so quickly. It's not a grind. It's exploiting a glitch.

Playing a single mode for 5 hours is defienlty a grind. It’s so pointless. If you wanna sit there for 5 hours playing a mode like he derby. Yeah you should get xp

SDS

It didn’t say they were going to discontinue that XP, but reduce it... but I wonder by how much?

So your telling me people who sit and play something so mind numbly boring that takes no skill should be awarded more XP than those that complete collections for as many teams as possible? Yeah ok. Sure it's a grind.. a extremely tedious one. It's still exploiting a glitch. The HR Derby wasn't designed to give that much XP. That's why they are patching it. I don't really blame SDS.. they would think people bought their game to play and try to get cards.. not play a mode for 10 hours out of a 24 hour day. Lol.. but sure .. big time grind.

We also bought the game thinking it would work in a somewhat proper way and that any gameplay issues could be resolved at the same speed that boosted XP earnings are nerfed. They’re focusing on the wrong exploits and issues. Yes those things need to be addressed but leveling up is part of the game. Dropping a fly ball you’re locked under or hitting a perfect/perfect line out while giving up homeruns on early/ok and bad pci placement. If the game worked as it should people wouldn’t gravitate to other modes to find those XP issues.

At the same time though, people shouldn’t be able to afk farm xp on retro mode every night lol. Also I don’t think the game is that bad on hall of fame. Now, if we’re talking about All star and below, that’s a whole different story.

I don’t blame SDS for that specifically. The thing that bothers me is that outfielders still can’t lock on the ball and the thing they decided to prioritize is the HR derby XP. Like fix the actual gameplay. Like you said. They should focus on people who play the game. So okay. If you wanna get rid of Hr derby xp. Do that. But actually fix the fielding in gameplay first. It wasn’t an issue for me the first half of the game but latley my fielders never lock on and it gets annoying. Or my center fielder will be running torwards a ball hit right up the middle and it’ll go right by him

SDS

They didn't even "fix" the steal glitch they just made it so the batter doesn't run in time with the release it's horrible. Tried it in a showdown with breakout Cobb (99 speed 87 steal) against the Yankees. Miller stayed locked in place while I took two leads and then Cobb just didn't jump and Sanchez easily threw him out. SDS are laughable they just want stub purchases.

Did you actually read the patch notes? Fielding was the FIRST thing mentioned on there. Whether the fielding adjustments actually did anything remains to be seen, but it seems crazy that people are getting upset about exploits getting fixed on the least played modes in this game otherwise and not the entire list of positives in the patch notes. The MTO points thing sucks but fixing something back to normal is not a problem. It was accidentally changed to be better and they changed it back to normal, not exactly as big a deal as people are making it out to be.

SDS

The other thing to consider for HR derby is that, unlike collections or even VS CPU grinding, you don’t get any other rewards. No cards, no innings towards TA, no stubs etc...I thought it made sense for HR derby to give a little more XP than modes that also offered other benefits

Different teams/people would be working on the gameplay and the XP bugs. You don’t want the XP people doing the gameplay fixes. It would be like recruiting a volleyball player into your polo team because they both ‘play sport’.

I mean... Just because the game doesn't work appropriately for everyone on this forum still doesn't mean you should be able to make your team OP by exploiting something that wasn't working right. It's May 1st. These guys have already maxed out XP. They have Thames Springer Ramirez. For exploiting a glitch. Mean while people paid money in these tough times to try and get closer to get Biggio Sheffield Mantle. I mean... There isn't much difference between those 6 99s except name value. Should the game play be fixed? Absolutely. Do they want to fix it? Of course. Is it frustrating? Yes... I haven't seen anyone on the forum complain about getting bogus XP and virtually have a end game team 6 weeks into the game cycle.

HR derby gave 25xp per HR hit. that's it. that's not an exploit. it's simply clear/transparent rewards for those that want to play a game mode included by SDS.

this isn't SDS fixing a glitch. it's them nerfing another aspect of the game that didn't need touched.

im curious what a hr gets you now. Plus for YEARS its been 25 pts per homerun. Never was touched before. Its very boring, but I did play a bit with my kids since they really arent that good, plus it helped good ole dad get closer to 300 stars. I am bummed about the MTO fix, as i was planning on actually playing that mode, but 8-10 hours for half a stage done, seems overkill. I do like the showdown mode, but Fielding should be their priority #1. Yes they are here to make money, all businesses are. Fixing the glitches should be a priority, but fixing a quality product should be the #1 priority I feel.
