Where are all the Vet's?

SDS

I have been apart of this community for quite awhile, I never or rarely see any post's from some of the vet's of DD or even the show. When I do see them they are not good post's and this is just not a good sign.

Do you remember when you could setup your signature to include the banner with your win loss record and batting average?

early stages of DD, forgive me if I am off on the date but I believe it was in '15?. I think DD was introduced in '13 or '14, I am not certain on timeframes exactly, sorry.

When DD first dropped in MLBTS 12, it was with a bunch of fictional players your had to upgrade attributes using stubs. This was a fun concept and MLB players were mostly useless. Your players would expire after a certain number of games (career or whatnot) and you’d have to build a whole other squad. It was so much fun.

And yes I’ve been playing DD that long

I remember that, though I never really considered it DD. I just feel disheartened, I am not enjoying this year after so many year's of enjoying this game.

I get what you’re saying man. I still enjoy it, the parts I don’t, I kinda stay away. Everyone looks for something different out of the game so it varies from person to person

Don’t get me wrong, alot of things are bad/wrong with this year’s game. I guess I’m just able to look past a few of them

I actually find myself enjoying offline quite a bit, which is a huge reversal for me, I was basically online only unless I needed to grind for something (and even then I hated playing vs the computer). But this real I really enjoy stuff like showdown, so I don't play much ranked

SDS

I think some have been banned for speaking their minds. Others are just over the year in year out nonsense I assume.

Speaking of these forums though I miss those days where we could each upload our own profile picture. It was the only way I could represent Tim Lincecum visually on these boards.

I still have an offline franchise mode that I dip into, but this year in terms of DD I feel slighted. That might just be me, but I feel like the whole game took 2 step's backwards.

I have no problem looking past a few things, I mean we're in a different time. But let's be honest, following the latest patch trend's it is not looking good for us veteran's of the series.

Idk, to me there seems to be more offline content.

There are evolution players. (Yes some online missions, but the majority of any evolution is offline stuff).

Team Affinity is way more relevant for offline, with stuff like showdowns and moments tied to it.

I have reasons to occasionally do Play vs CPU to accomplish things like player evolution.

You have player programs, which combines moments, stats, and play vs cpu (Again, some online moments stats, but majority is offline)

Conquest maps are decent, especially compared to this time last year, we didn't see things like prospect packs early on.

The only thing really missing to make offline the ultimate experience is being able to prestige players.

Imo 2020 offline > 2019 offline

DD was fake players until '15...
'15 was the first year of the real DD where we had legends and stuff. It was like 30 legends, one for collecting each team. Then one for collecting AL and NL, and everything was Ted Williams I think. That's it

Content has never been my problem with SDS, its the way the game plays. IMO this year's game play's like sh#$,. I am experiencing the best success I have had online since '17, but its just not enjoyable to me. It's all feel's very predictable, suddenly those centred swings go from good/popped to good/squared...then the next game its back to good/popped.

Gotcha, I just assumed you meant offline content wise because you said "but this year in terms of DD I feel slighted.", and I assumed the word slighted was meant as saying SDS didn't focus as much on offline. That's my bad

Let's be honest, I HATE MOMENT'S, but I have never hid that fact lol. But if that's the only way to truly enjoy the game I am willing to give it a try, Unfortunately IMO moment's have sucked and Conquest has been kind of a filler but it isn't to me in terms of offline content. It honestly just feels like a write off game to me, focusing everything on next gen.

Fake players were a lot of fun. You could put a bunch of useless bronze and silver players into a pot and get one gold player, then mash some gold players together for a diamond. You even could control what position the guy would be by mixing players from only that position. Imagine these greed bags letting you exchange golds for a diamond in today’s game 😂

Also you could customize the name and appearance of the fake players if you liked. If you got a left handed pitcher with a good cutter, you could name him Andy pettitte and use his delivery and stuff.

God I hated the expiration dates.

Nothing like packing an awesome player who you got to use for only 20 games and having them go on the 30 day DL in the first game, meaning you never really got to use them.

Especially with pitchers, you didn’t get to use them for a lot of games
