No XP if you change your slidders.

SDS

Just got off the phone with my brother who preordered the $100.00 Version of The Show 21. He tells me if you change your sliders at all you gain no XP for playing. Thank you for making this change you just saved me money. Now I don't have to buy the game. This is suppose to be something fun to take me away from my problems. Some will argue that it needs to be real. Well if you want real go try out for a real MLB team. This is suppose to be fun and with this change its not. I will not be buying this version of The Show or any other till this is changed. You make the game. I pay $60.00 for it I should be able to play however I want and still get XP.

SDS

Well, I applaud you for making an informed purchasing decision. So many pre-ordered without knowing details and then complained after the fact.

Apparently you don't know what "baseball simulation" means. This game was always meant to mirror a realistic experience. What you're looking for is an arcade style baseball game and there are plenty of those out there. Go play those. Bye Felicia. ✌

SDS should offer people an option to cut ties with DD, to play in offline mode completely.

It’s [censored] especially when i use sliders in rtts for realism as adds a bit more challenge so now us people who use realistic sliders are completely [censored] as well.

There is reason why sliders are offline only it doesn’t effect the mp experience at all. There is no reason to punish people for something that is not even exploitable.

I am well aware of what they are. I remember when there were no computers. I will play what I want. As a Gulf War vet I've earned that right.

I dont even know what sliders are. Except for the pitch. Figured it was just for franchise or something.

So you are mad because you can't cheat your way to online rewards easier, you can still put the difficulty all the way down to beginner and get xp

Does this count even if you move them back to normal?

I am trying to post this in as many places where it makes sense so hopefully it gets seen by the developers but I agree that it is completely unfair to take away XP for changing sliders. Especially when you are someone like myself and others who are actually making the game more difficult / realistic. I always increase the pitch speed ever year and lower the the contact and power from the base Hall Of Fame levels ( it makes a really realistic stat line for me ). This I get no stubs pr progress to my game because of that which is frustrating. IMO there should be a multiplier system like some other games have. Where if you lower the difficulty you get far less XP but if you raise it, it will increase incrementally based on what you change or even just stay the same. But to get none is really unfair IMO.

I personally dont play DD so the progression for that means nothing to me. I just want to be able to earn stubs and XP to buy / unlock equipment for my RTTS player and sponsorships for my Franchise.

It's not cheating if they let you do it.

The idea behind that so people couldn't progress faster in the XP reward path. Sorry you feel this way but it is fair for everybody. You can still play for fun just won't get XP.

If fun is all you are after then what difference does it make if not getting XP? Or you mad b/c they stopped an exploit from last year when people were prestige level 100 in week 2?

RTTS needs to be adequately firewalled from the other competitive parts of the game so that an RTTS player can do what he wants ... IN RTTS. I only play RTTS, and since I'm an old fart, I turn down pitch speed so I can actually hit, since my reflexes suck. Unfortunately, that's a non-starter now, because of the Ballplayer tie-in which forces slider defaults for fairness purposes. I get that, but as an RTTS only player, I'm basically done here.

I'm going back to 20 for now, and I'll watch and hope for slIder changes that might let me come back to 2021.

Xp means nothing for non DD players. So changing sliders should make no difference to you.

If you only play RTTS you don't need XP. There is no account level to gain XP towards. So you want XP to sell the DD rewards? Is that it?

SDS

Sliders can help make things MORE real,... pitchers don’t throw over every single time a player takes a lead off first, however with normal sliders they pretty much do. This is another in a long line of things they changed or took out that just kills RTTS

Why mess with sliders? Just set it for arcade mode and have at it. It's exactly what you are looking for, and you still gain xp.
