They messed up this year

SDS

I would always play the old road to the show when I wasn’t trying to play stressful DD games. But this year they completely ruined it. For some reason they decided to tie road to the show into DD make it so you literally have to play every single game and can’t progress if you don’t. From what I know u have to use the stupid perks to make ur guy better cause you cap out at 50. You have to pretty much play DD with ur 65 overall player to get the better perks, and the call up system is terrible. I play in spring training lead my team in every major stat then after get optioned back down??? Like what. I like the new two way stuff and the kinda cut scenes I guess you could call them. But come one SDS u took the good parts out. I don’t wanna play 162 games to have to get my guy better. I don’t wanna have to play DD to complete the stupid program. DD and RTTS should be completely separate. What were they thinking

SDS

What worst is that you can't even use you guy at the position you want him in because DD has him listed as something else..... Using a SP/LF and I can't even use him as an SP because DD has him as a RP???? WTF This whole Architype system blows

SDS

They changed RTTS from a stand-alone offline experience to a grinding tool for your ballplayer. Worst part, they thought, and probably still think, that it's a good idea.

I hate this new system, but I leveled up an entire archetype without playing DD. It is not that hard to get the perks, you will get all of them if you just play the games. I have duplicates from how many I got.

SDS

I don’t like it tied to DD either but I’ve also been able to level up my archetype with strictly RTTS.

If you wanna level up your pitcher to the 50 cap quick play as a closer a few seasons, it doesn’t take long.

SDS

I only play RTTS I hate this new system so much I went back to last years release

I've re-started by ballplayer for the 4th time now due to errors and crashes. Lost progress, then lost equipment now after 1.05 i get freeze/crash about every 2nd or 3rd game. Often having to replay whole series - only for it to happen again.
I've decided this is the last time I try. Life's too short and there are too many other good games to keep dealing with this. As I've got zero interest in online play, I'll go back to to '20 if I play The Show again this year - If I play at all.
And, despite owning every single game in this franchise going back to the PS2, including Vita - Next year I'm going to give serious thought to not buying next year's game.
They really messed up this year.
