RANKED SEASONS is horrid to play right now

SDS

SDS made a mistake releasing so many Diamonds and cheesy players it should really only be live series players for the first month at least. Being 11-4 every [censored] team I play now has a purchased team of all diamond. But of course all they care about is making money if they were smart they would’ve gone the madden route added a salary cap to rank seasons or added some restrictions per division rating but no SDS is full of lazybones non-innovative thinking money grabbers. The game is in a pathetic state where is pay to win is in full force. On top of that the input is as worse as ever as I’m seeing so many homeruns where the PCI is not even on the ball going out specifically on the inside pitch.

How can you have a whole year and you’re number one mode the only innovative action you take is to make it easier for everybody and add parallels? really no team chemistry? no salary cap? no nothing! just the same game and us waiting for a new content to spend our money on thinking new players will make us better at the game or give us a better chance of winning it’s all a lie.

It is literally the same game and we are just waiting for content now somehow you even made the perfect perfect sound worse than before and don’t even get me started on the menus.

I lost 6-4 to a guy with all diamond team, 4 of his homeruns where bad pci placement and early swings, But i square something with my gold perfect straight to SS it is what it is, But pci seems really small this year unless 90+ contact

SDS

Just played a guy that had all the collections done, so my golds vs Soriano and the gang. It is literally a joke 😂

SDS

So why you just don't wait couple of days until all casual players are in the game?
Of course now RS mode is full of streamers, big money spenders and so on... I'm about average online player and I'm not touching online until next week, when I have my team prepared

SDS

I've came up against 99 Ortiz twice in six games. Needless to say my gold Luis Castillo gave up some dingers.

Why should that be the solution, how do you just alienate people who don’t want to spend?? oh wait yeah you want MONEY MONEY MONEY.

SDS

Dude, you have unrealistic expectations. Play events. Most people avoid ranked right now because they are building a team. GAME has been out 4 days........... are you serious right now?!?! It’s not pay to win... they have so much free content... it’s just like steroids... still need to SQUARE up the pci... a million double AA boys juicing that never made the big leagues. ***hands you some tissues

Mad people went out and spent their recent stimulus checks on stubs me personally i like the no money grind wouldn't spend anything more than purchase price on this hunk of junk legit 2 days in and I've been hit with network errors more times than i can count lol

SDS
  1. Open YouTube
  2. Search for MLB The Show market flipping
  3. Take notes
  4. Flip cards for profit
  5. Rinse and repeat
  6. Make millions of stubs for free

You're welcome

First off, EA is the biggest money grab franchise of them all, the gold standard of pay to win. Secondly parallels, aka prestige from last year, was completely changed because of all the dashboarding from last year. I will agree that chemistry is a thing that has a big influence in athletics, but baseball is probably the sport that depends on it the least. Last but not least, there is NO salary cap in the MLB, so why would you implement it in an MLB video game?

Pretty sure some people have said it already, but maybe ranked seasons isn’t where you should be starting your playing experience at yet. I personally haven’t touched any online modes yet, partially because of the stubs lost from buy orders fiasco, but events or BR is where I’d start before ranked. I can understand frustration, but your argument lacks evidence to support your claim of them being a “money grab” company. Although there are plenty of things to complain about with SDS, they are the best at being able to make a competitive team with no money spent.

SDS

What’s going on with the universal profiles? I don’t see any previous years stats or stats for this current year?

This.
Only way to prevent early God Squads is suspend people's credit/debit until all have access to the game but that way is so unrealistic! Honestly, if I 'had money' I'd buy top players as well. I thought about getting the 67, 500 stubs, but thought of better uses for $50.
I still have no itch to play RS though. I don't know if that's good or bad.

The amount of streamers I see with every live series player and Chipper is insane. Had to be hundreds of dollars easily

SDS

So it's not fair that people

A. Like to spend their $$$ on this game
B. Effectively now how to make tons of stubs by working the market
C. Do both of these (my category)

Sorry but these posts are straight comical...
Oh and yes, a company's goal should never ever be to make money from their consumers.

SDS

I haven’t played ranked yet as I’m still building a team. They touted stick skills to be more prevalent this year. Is that not the case?
