Starting to think your RTTS ballplayer in DD not being able to get higher than a 65 is intended and not a glitch

SDS

I don't think SDS intended for us to be able to have our RTTS Ballplayer that we grind from day ones stats to be able to carry over, to ensure the value of the cards on the market, not untill they release a few more programs and entice people to buy more cards, and then they'll "fix" the ovr carrying over. I don't think their intentions with this new feature was genuine,.... I have grinded over 50+ hours in RTTS and I'm only a 82 ovr and DD a 65, 20+ hours I played RTTS didn't even count towards my progression...

SDS

yeah they really messed up RTTS this year. It sucks because it was a classic mode but now it's just a bridge to get you to play more DD.

SDS

I can't even improve in RTTS because the missions are stuck.. perma 68

SDS

Yeah progression hasn't counted for me AT ALL in RTTS. I'm pretty baffled how they could completely F up one of their new big modes. It's embarrassing.

SDS

I posted the same idea earlier,... yeah it feels like this was intentional:

SDS

It's just a visual bug though. Your ballplayer still has the stats that their archetype and equipment gives them ingame, even if the OVR doesn't go over 65.

SDS

My Ballplayer is 82 in RTTS but here are his DD attributes which would make him a mid/high 90 I think.

Contact from both sides = 100
Power from both sides = 82-84
Vision = 95
Speed = 84
Fielding = 76

SDS

Does the ballplayer improve its rating in DD play? Or does that only happen in RTTS?

SDS

You can only improve the base ratings in RTTS which I like because I used to play that exclusively before shifting to DD last year. Now there is a reason to do both and have been grinding RTTS hard as a result. There are very very good rewards after you get the Diamond Archetype as the final path it littered with stubs from selling Gold Perks and Diamond Equipment that you get along the way.

OK, I see. Thanks for your response!

SDS

Yeah I got my rtts guy up to all diamond stuff and he is an absolute beast. Listed as 81 overall but with equipment, he is for sure 99. Good at everything

SDS

Yeah. I added a Diamond Power perk off the market and CAP is insane and it’s 1 week in. If people grind RTTS then CAPs are going to be maxed everything by midseason and kind of unfair.

I also added Diamond Fielding perk and even though my guy is a primary 2B he’s getting good SS animations so Rawhide is the way the go if someone wants 2B/SS I think.

84 overall before all the equipment (diamonds all around)

SDS

Level up your archetype.

SDS

how do you level up your archetype ikasnu?

Grind RTTS.

Choose a bronze archetype then check out the program to upgrade to silver, then to gold, then to diamond, then to diamond perk. The programs are STUPIDLY buried in your ballplayer loadout -- press square to bring it up.

If you want to supercharge it, you can download the RTTS grind roster (choose Rockies only), enter each game and fast simulate. Stats count for the program as long as you simulate IN GAME (i.e., not on the calendar). You'll max out an archetype in a couple hours. Turn on some Netflix and do this in the background.

Yep I did this and my guy true ratings in DD are Contact vs R 109 pwr vs R 118 Contact/Power vs lefties 106/106....All defensive attributes high 80s to mid 90s with 70+ speed/BR...Cap is a beast

Go into your loadout and select "activate" then back out and let it auto save then go back in. That fixed it for me.
