Will integration of RTTS player into DD destroy RTTS gameplay?

SDS

Referring to MTO specifically where, because it is DD rewards-based (TA points, cards for completion), the gameplay is compromised to the point of predictability, I am concerned that the same will happen with Road to the Show.

I wonder what the end game is here?

Is it to convert RTTS players (the biggest or second biggest mode) to DD to justify a reduction in RTTS resources?

Or is it to get DD players to play RTTS, similar to how DD players were given carrots for playing MTO?

If it is a straightforward ’use your RTTS player in DD’ then serious DD players won’t touch it, at least in its current state where attributes can’t be manipulated and maxed out.

And what about difficulty levels? An all-99 attribute RTTS player levelled up in rookie difficulty so it can then be used in DD ranked isn’t something that is going to be gifted to players. What changes will be made to the mode to prevent that?

Therein lies my concern, if RTTS has secured some decent attention, how will the mode be compromised to get DD players playing it?

TBH, RTTS shouldn't have the extreme sliders it has, especially if they are going to let you migrate that toon to your DD squad

I agree in the sense of it forming with DD but as someone who has played both. I enjoy playing DD competitively and RTTS to have fun and relax and therefore enjoy playing on rookie with easy sliders. Cuz it’s more of a relaxing mode. Interested to see what they do with it this year but like the other guy said. I hope they don’t ruin the relax playing of RTTS to appease DD players

Perhaps they are just moving your created player format to RTTS due to difficulty reasons?

What i mean is when created player starts out in the 60's right? So perhaps some were struggling to get their created player to progress through all star difficulty moments for instance?

This way they start out in minors with possibly tasks to achieve to progress? I dunno just a thought.
