Stream Schedule for MLB The Show 21?

SDS

Will there be a Live Stream schedule for MLB The Show 21?

SDS

Video releases starting in March, not going to be a regular hype stream year.

SDS

To keep everyone safe as we continue to adapt to the current global pandemic, we have had to make some changes to how we reveal and share all the new features and updates to the game. This year we will be rolling out Feature Premiere, which will be broadcasting simultaneously across Twitch, YouTube and Facebook Live. The Feature Premieres will be a great opportunity for us to show our fans what we have been working on that makes this year’s game better than its predecessor. For MLB The Show 21, we plan on posting around six Feature Premieres with the first one being released in March.

Long story short, all the live-streams will be pre-recorded.

(Truth be told, they're probably going to be disappointing/redundant for long-time Show players. The first few are going to be REALLY dumbed down to get the XBoxers up to speed.)

Be "really dumbed down..." WTF are you are talking about dude. It's a sports game, The Xbox has sports games...and there have been baseball games out on the Xbox for years, it is only over the past 6-7 that the XBox has not had a AAA baseball game (yes, I am excluding RBI Baseball).

There is no "dumbing down" for a community of users that are no more/less intelligent than PS users (insert your witless, "dumb enough to buy a XBox" line here:_________).

Could there be little-to-no progress/change made to the game because it is porting over to another console? Sure! That would make sense. Disappointing and understandable (especially with the pandemic still going on).

But there will not be a 2-3 year lag because a group of users lack intellect....

SDS

You're right: XBox users are completely up to date and have common knowledge about Conquest, Programs, OVRs, RttS, Ballin Packs, BR, Showdown, the Market, Choice Packs, Daily Missions, Exchanges vs. Collect, Topps Now, POTM, How Signature cards are calculated, XP Paths, and all the rest.

There's no reason whatsoever for SDS to spend a single second discussing and defining them for the newbs.

SDS

I mean they never really try to catch up new PS players each year who have never played the show. I imagine they will have a deeper tutorial in-game guides for newbies. Also, I've only owned a PS to play the Show year in and year out but since I have a Xbox Series X I'm switching this year.

I'm curious how they'll handle the forums this year with players like myself switching?

I have had a PS since the end of MLB the Show 17's life cycle primarily wanted it for RTTS but mid way through 18 I tried out DD and have been hooked in terms of win percentage it's gone up each year did horrible in 18 but didn't start playing till late July early August and couldn't catch up. However before I got my PS I was pretty up to date having watched YT videos about it before hand. I believe they have already stated they will have an in depth tutorial for new players I could be wrong about that though. In regards to the forums they have already added the ability to sign in via your XBL account I'd imagine it will be the same way its been for PS players just using their XBL info.

Why do they wait so long to reveal this stuff? It's so annoying.

Technically it's not longer than previously released. Just seems longer because it's pushed back a month to coincide be with the late release of the game.

If I'm not mistaken, last year they had the streams in Feb and the game was released in March.

No dates were given. Think of those as episodes in no specific order.

Zero plans to do this.

there's years of youtube videos for xbox ppl to learn how to play the game.

Your original statement and rebuttal do not align. I did not doubt the complexity of the DD, and I would like for you to explain how the game is going to be “dumbed down” (your words). While I appreciate the attempt of using a straw man argument, I do recognize that your rebuttal is an illogical fallacy.

So, how will the game be dumbed down?

SDS

Never said the game would be dumbed down. My argument was that the streams/premieres/whatever we're calling them today were going to be more remedial than normal because a substantial amount of the user base would be new.

However, Collin says no. So that's that.

We will be welcoming new players, but by no means are we going to change the type of things we want to talk about.

The Feature Premieres will be different, but largely due to factors out of our control. We spent a lot of time thinking about how we can provide the same energy and information we have done year over year while also keeping everyone safe.

SDS

Playing the show for the first time is overwhelming for sure, but imo it was part of the fun of learning and advancing/progressing in the game. Everyone plays at their own level and pace. I'm sure SDS will cater these feature premieres to both the newbie and experienced player. Plus content creators are one google search away and they undoubtedly will be making videos and live streaming every aspect of the game. x-boxers are in for a real treat.

SDS

I'm an xbox player, really looking forward to having the Show 21 on Series X. I'm expecting to loose most, if not all online games for quite awhile. The main reason is because I'm in UK. No baseball over here so big learning curve ahead. Disadvantages, don't know players, ie best to pick for team. Best pitchers to start with, batting line up, and best pitches to use. BUT I can't wait to get stuck in and give it my all. Given time I will learn. And I will never quite if getting hammered online. Just don't be abusive if players from UK do stuff you think is wrong, we are learning the game, give us time. Cheers guys.

Dear xBox players - WELCOME!

Here's the deal. This game is like golf. The higher the player's card "score", the worse he is. Long story short, the guys you want on your team would be 55-59. Which, coincidentally, is a great 18-hole score. If you see my team loaded with 99's, it's just because I want to be fair to you because you're new. All the PS4 guys on here can vouch for me.

P.S. Make sure you follow this strategy on Day 1, and go directly to "Ranked Season". Also, when in Ranked Season, always pick Date Palm Field. If you pick "Shippet", lots of guys on here will yell at you.
