I think with no double xp a lot of people will struggle to complete the programs

And I mean just getting to the boss packs.

Doing a bit of a breakdown, last year you essentially got 3 program stars per 9 inning game. This year if you play a ranked season game maybe you’ll get 2k-3k or so xp a game. That translates to a much slower progression to 350k xp than the old method.

Add to it that showdown only gets you 35k which I believe is significantly less than showdown gave last year stars wise and I really think that casual players are likely to be locked out of getting to the bosses, which is very unfortunate.

SDS

2-3k? For a ranked game? I think it’s closer to 6-9k depending on how well you do. I get around 3-4K per conquest game. Also if I pitch in rtts, just those pitched innings and stats get about 3500k

SDS

Add in player programs, dailies, collections. There’s a good amount of xp chances there and more on the way

SDS

1 big inning can get you 1k in XP.

Come on you can't be serious. All I see is you complaining every time you post.

2 conquests @ 25k (based on the first one already release I'd assume the one tomorrow for Mother's Day will be 25k too) = 50k

Most likely 2 player programs which were 35k each in 1st inning = 70k

3 1st inning bosses = 50k

Showdown 35k

That alone is 205k. So you just need 145k XP over the next 27 days which is roughly 5400 XP/day. if we go by your #s of 2-3k/ranked game you need to play 2-3 ranked games a day to just hit the 2nd inning boss. That doesn't seem unreasonable to me. What i didn't include in my calculation was a second collection which is likely but I don't want to try and put an XP # on it because they have varied a bit.

1 big inning. LOL. I get excited scoring 1 run on HOF. Simply can't react or recognize pitches. I have hit so many balls in the PCI for no hits it is laughable. I honestly think I have 3 HR's in my last 10 RS games and they were Dejong, Lofton and Felix Hernandez. Oh, I think Trout may have 1 or 2. Feels like the rest of my lineup has 30 power. I have to hit it perfect to get a HR. 1/100th of a millimeter off perfect nets me a routine fly ball almost every time.

Just another MLB game where I don't feel rewarded. I'll tank and go back down to 400 again just like last year so I can actually enjoy the game. Use different cards and such.

SDS

No idea how I go from hitting .400 to .100 between HOF and All star. HOF speeds for me seem faster than legend custom practice.

SDS

Gonna be a grind for sure but we will have to see what they drop. I’d hate to think they just want to push everybody to farming xp.

SDS

I haven't played much at all, 1 RS game, conquest map, a few USA conquest games, one showdown, I'm at 80K. No, I didn't do the collections. Ya'll being dramatic LOL

6-9k for ranked season? Maybe I just suck, but I played a game while double do was on today, I did lose 6-5 and hit 4 hr’s 11 hits, a steal, and two walks and only got about 5200?

Am I missing something and you all are playing 14-13 ranked games? Even when I have 30 hits and beat the computer 20-0 on rookie it still only gave me 10-15k with double xp?

That’s because you were getting double Xp. Get rid of that and you’re around 55k.

Yeah, like I said maybe I just suck, but I must not be awful because I usually sit around 600-750.

Again though, maybe all these guys are putting up 10 runs in hall of fame, but on no plant do I see 6-9k of xp per ranked game being normal.

Just did a conquest game and won 4-0. That got me 1254xp, if you only played conquest it would take 518 three inning games to finish everything with no dropped games.

Sure if that's the ONLY way you could earn XP. But it's not as I posted earlier. Your 518 games completely ignores collections, showdown, conquests, player programs, & daily missions.

SDS

I played for a few hours last night and all day today, and I'm already at 150k. I usually only have time to play on weekends so I'm not sure if I'll be able to max the program, but I'm on pace to be well over 350k which is the only milestone i really care about.

Just giving numbers, it’s about 130 hours of gameplay to finish without any of the other ways. I haven’t been able to finish a game all night so those numbers might be a little low.

if you haven't been able to finish a game all night then it's most likely on your end. Other than the unscheduled "maintenance" to finally turn off 2x XP I have had 0 issues with the servers and I'm not even hard wired.

But again if you are going to "just give numbers" you should provide an accurate accounting which would include all the other ways you can earn XP. If it was only earned from ranked games then I'd be 100% behind you. But that's not the case so it's just misleading at best and whining at worst.

55K for a few hours played, in a 21 day program? Not a problem at all boss. There isn't an overall XP path this year. If you complete it in two days, what the hell will you do for the rest of the month? "I need it now" mentality at it's finest.

Intentional walking, using the rosters of 99 pitcher vs 0 stat players spamming X to get strike outs, all still work for grinding xp, yes it will take twice as long, but you can pull up netflix, watch a movie, and get 30k xp without even looking at the game. The just made it slower, didn't take any of the brokenness away.
