Sounds like the mode is still broken. Sounds like the whole game is still broken for that matter. What a shame. Guess I won't be playing a baseball game this year. Oh well.
Its been working okay for me. I'm a position player with one loadout so maybe that is why. Gear perks still seem to be broken. Progression was sped up a little bit and the archetype tasks actually tracks without weird workarounds. I havent played the game outside of RTTS so your mileage may vary.
