During the 8th inning stream, the guy who came on as a guest at one point mentionned that it would be fun if it was possible to get the prestige grind done offline. I was SURE that was a setup for SDS to say "Yes, we agree and we heard you and will open up the prestige grind to offline play". Nope. Didn't happen. But Ramone's face.....priceless!
At this point, it needs to be opened to offline, and not for the reasons people think. So many people have literally cheated to get those cards prestiged that the playing field between those that are doing it "honestly" and those that "boosted" that there needs to be a way to level it all.
I played a guy this weekend who was a worst player than me (hard to imagine), had a sub .400 record, and fielded a FULL 9 PLAYERS that were prestiged and had 3 on the bench. No way he earned those, not with how he plays.
There are cards that will never be prestiged (or at least VERY FEW), such as say, certain FotF cards, so it would give players who prefer to play offline (I am one of those players) something to grind towards. It's september, and it's time to open it up and to come up with a BETTER way to do this next year.
