Let's take a moment

SDS

To be mindful of our happy and enthusiastic state of minds looking forward to the release of MLB The Show 20. Moments like these seem kind of rare on the forums, so let's all cherish the present. Who knows what the forum might look like 2 weeks from now.

Just wait until the patches start rolling out, usually gets pretty entertaining then

SDS

The first two weeks everyone likes the game, then the patches start hitting...

I think the most satisfying thing possible this year would be if we're able to call the people complaining about gameplay idiots for once, hopefully people without any reason are the only ones complaining 🙏

I'd actually give it a month. I would guess SDS learned their lesson last year by re-balancing for the better cards waaaaaaayyy too early.

Re-balancing in general is BS and kind of defeats the purpose of the mode, but whatever. Whole other topic.

There will always be patches. Modes like DD have to rebalance the game for the better cards or folks could be competitive with low-level golds the entire year.

"I still can't get my pre-order bonuses!"
"Pitching/hitting is so much worse than 18!"
"Why can't I quick sell such and such?"
"Pack odds are trash!"
"We want Randy Johnson and Barry Bonds, not Dave *****ing Kingman!"
"Devs are already focused on 21 and the new platforms and ignoring Playstation already!"
"Online play using my modem from 1978 is trash!"
"WHERE ARE THE DIAMONDS, RAMONE?"

After experiencing one lineout >"Well boys, lineouts are back on the menu"
"I just played x who had y amount of diamonds, P2W!"
"I lost to x who struck out y times, this game rewards bad players"

The first complaints are always the people who go from >.500 to <.500

If the game plays well, I hope we won't. No need to fix something that's not broken.

If you can get that across to SDS, that would be great.

It's funny that the most positive posts on the game's message board occur during the week before its release.

Right around alpha/beta selection time is hilarious too

My favorite is I know it shows I played 2500 hours but I left my PlayStation on.

Lol to be fair, I play a ton and could maybe even reach that number of actual playing time myself but I also do really leave my PlayStation on whenever I head out or need to do something.

That being said, nobody has to show accountability whatsoever for how they manage their own personal time.
