There is a major difference in my stats for my DD ballplayer and my RTTS ballplayer...I thought it was the same...seems like my equipment stat points are still not registering in RTTS...any advice other than the quick out with vs cpu?

SDS

So this is the most reported issue in RTTS right now but SDS hasn’t responded if it’s intentional or a bug. From past experiences we can assume it’s a bug and is not a priority due the amount of times servers crash.

I wish they would keep an active punch list pinned on here so we could see they know it’s an issue and have acknowledged a fix is coming soon.

SDS

It's definitely a bug and they still haven't addressed it. Seems to be different for everyone. For mine I figured out it is not counting equipment for the first game of any series. But when I click play next game after the first game it has been giving me the bonuses in games 2, 3 and 4 or however long the series is.
A good way to tell is when you're up to bat go to your player card and see which perks are activated. I'm using a gold archetype now and when equipment isn't active only the sniper perk shows up. When I check game 2 and after it shows all the perks like hitting machine, bomber, etc. And you can probably tell just by hitting though I've been able to dial in during game 1 and actually still hit homers on AS sometimes with 60 power. But 95 power is better lol. And more often than not I'm hitting deep fly balls since the same approach with equipment boosts would be HRs.

So wait, where are you getting sniper, hitting machine, bomber perks for your RTTS ball player? The only perks I’ve ever seen are contact, power, speed etc.

Okay that’s what I figured. I don’t think I’ve progressed enough in RTTS to get quirks. I only see those on DD players cards

This is definitely not intentional and certainly a bug. How do I know? Because equipment does work intermittently. I have observed that if playing a series, equipment never works in game #1 of the series but does intermittently work in games #2 and later. And you can tell when it's working because (a) the "cats-eye" while batting gets much larger and (b) when you do get on your base your stealing and speed attributes will be boosted by your gear. If gear was designed to not work in RTTS, it wouldn't be intermittent and the gear should say that it's NOT available for use in both DD and RTTS modes, only for use in DD modes..

I fully agree with this. I don't participate in social media. So I don't follow SDS on twitter, facebook, etc. But based on what I can tell, if SDS practiced a little more transparency the fan base may not be quite as totally pissed off as they are right now.

SDS

I'm having equipment issues between different loadouts. My two-way player has those Jackie Robinson socks when he's playing DH or 3B, but I don't need them when he's pitching. I keep having to unequip them.

SDS

The equipment bug on PS version seems less impactful as you guys at least get it sometimes. On Xbox Series X I have never seen equipment working while batting and seeing the graphic for contact, power and vision. Or as base runner when you pause you can see steal and speed. I have never seen the equipment bonuses added in like they do if you use your My Ballplayer in DD and check those same things as above.

I don’t think your equipment is suppose to boost your rtts cap. Just your dd cap. It was like that last year from my understanding.

In that case it should tell us that as many of us bought equipment with $$$. Thinking we could use in RTTS as it does not say anywhere that it’s only for DD. Not to mention those saying it intermittently works in RTTS makes me believe it’s a bug. Also I could have sworn that some The Show 20 players told me equipment worked in RTTS last year.

SDS

The gear says diamond dynasty and RTTS on it if it doesn’t impact caps then they really misrepresented those items.

SDS

No it boosted your rtts player last year and it is something that says both dd and rtts it seems like it gives me the boost sometimesbut not always and I can't figure out why it works sometimes but not other times

SDS

Do check swings not work

It only works sometimes on PS. On Xbox Series X it never works in RTTS, only in DD. It just makes me mad that this topic is consistently posted about on here and SDS won’t even acknowledge the bug.

SDS

I am pissed cause I actually bought stubs to get all diamond equipment and the boosts are not working so I feel like sds just robbed me

SDS

Between bugs and server issues sds may have gotten my last dollars ever. I used to buy madden every year and have not bought it in years now mlb the show just might be next. And it's a shame cause till this year I actually loved this game
