XP program suggestion

SDS

I feel like a good thing to add would be a recurring XP goal every 30-50k or so after completing the inning programs. This could award a standard or balling pack(s) or whatever SDS wants, but the main goal would be to give an incentive to continue progressing your game after completing the program. I personally and it seems others on the forums have been avoiding completing other programs or missions to avoid wasting XP for the 2nd inning. Thank you for come my ted talk

The only foreseeable problem with this is XP is already being exploited. Unless they figure out a patch, there’s people who with just “farm” XP non-stop and end up with dozens if not hundreds of extra Packs or whatever.

I definitely delayed jumping into the April POM program except trying 2 Moments so I don't waste the XP.
Gaining XP that just fades into the sunset or that falls off the flat earth is a bit painful. It's like window shopping or like kissing your girlfriend through a pane of glass, or. Ok, I'll see myself out now!.

Inning programs end at the boss pack. Anything from 350k to 650k is the filler content. Double XP went for almost 2 weeks. You probably aren't going to have this problem again

Nope and I can guarantee that next program will require more XP. Remember, SDS has always maintained that the bosses should be a challenge to obtain and not everyone would get them. People seem to think that they should automatically get them without much effort.

I mean it shouldn’t be NO effort but casual 1-2 hours a night should get people there.

This board has a lot of very hardcore players that play a lot but there are far more people that are casual and can only average a few hours a day at most. You need to make the baseline rewards obtainable to those players or you lose a huge chunk of players.

I agree not everyone can play enough to unlock them but that is the reason They are sellable on the market. If they made it that easy to obtain all the hard-core players would have nothing to do after a couple days. I feel like this is a happy medium

This is exactly why they made them sellable. Remember 17 & 19? Those programs were insane to grind out and some had online only requirements, especially 18. And none of the rewards were sellable. You either put in the time, or you didn’t get them. The compromise was what we have and the rewards can be bought. Not sure if you can go back and watch the videos for the 19 release, SDS specifically said, not every is meant to obtain them for free, it’s a built in compromise. People need to remember and understand that and not demand things made easier so everyone can win. That’s now how sports work, and not how sports games should work.

SDS

Each Subsequent inning is going to have an increase to the total XP as whatever the Reward is for collecting all Previous Inning Bosses. That way it seems like you're getting a boost, which you are towards the next Boss, but You're technically not to complete the whole XP Inning Progress.

I've been done since before double xp... Literally have had no reason to play for the last week and a half.

I'm new to the game....what is this XP exploit? I have only about 80k XPs for the 1st inning program LMAO! I need all the help I can get!

Not trying to be a [censored] but if you only have 80k xp then you haven't played the game in the last 2 weeks.

Edit: Also, asking for exploits on the official forums probably isn't the smartest thing to do and could get you the boot.

Making your main objective in a game, in this cases the bosses, not obtainable you an average player would be a horrific business model.

We get it...some of you have played 150 hours. Some of you exploited/boosted xp. Most people don’t have the time to do this.

Make the bosses reachable for reasonable play time and all the extra goodies for more hardcore players.

SDS

Yep too much exploiting going on for that.

What I would like to see is showdowns where I can use my team. Right now I have nowhere to use my team offline. And while I do play online sometimes I want to play offline but can’t use the team I built anywhere except play cpu or redoing the big conquest map and not gonna do that.

SDS

@locutusofburg
If you are referring to the 650k experience then yes I am at that point now. If you dont have enough time to grind for them then purchase them off the market. They are absolutely obtainable

I mean thats what parallels are for no? Not having missions to constantly do offline isn't a bad thing. What happened to just playing the game?

I don’t get what you mean about just playing the game. I need to do TA program and would like to use my team to do it. I believe this is a pretty reasonable request that they could work into the game. Bump up the difficulty on that on to veteran/all star or even all star/veteran.

I’m not going to mindlessly bang out parallels in rookie mode that’s for sure.

By paying real money In a lot of cases.

Again, the 350 k should be reasonable to complete for casuals. The 650k should be for more hardcore players.
