Finally got my CAP to Diamond & it’s underwhelming

SDS

I went shortstop all the way & I’m the Mechanical Man...I mean he doesn’t suck but he’s not anything like the beasts I’ve seen online. He’s got contact in the 80’s, power in the 90’s, Solid defense but very slow. This is with all the best equipment & perks applied. Where did I go wrong? lol

SDS

Did you get the player to 50/50 (without boosts) in every category?

SDS

Slugging sparkplug my friend

SDS

I wish the CAP in DD would reflect.

Still showing a 65 even though all my stats are over 80 except stealing.

SDS

I have mechanical man maxed out and with Power III, Power VII, Fielding VI, and Power I. The following stats at shortstop are are 96 contact from both sides, 119 power from both sides, 87 vision, 99 fielding, 78 arm, 99 reaction, 81 speed and 76 steal. You have to make sure you get all of your stats in RTTS to 50 overall

SDS

The hawk is the best in my opinion. And you have to get all your attributes to 50

Ahhh...I just did the DD side. Didn’t know you needed both. Thank you.

So are you saying you have to play rtts, because I'm not going to do that. If so, this was very poorly thought out by SDS.

It’s whack. Just have them separate IMO.

And this architect stuff is horrible. Just pick a position and then get the Power or the Speed stuff as it suits you.

Yes. Have to play RTTS to boost the stats up to their max abilities. The Hawk is by far the best. My hawk archetype has 108 contact and 125 power on both sides with 99 vision and 81 speed and 92 fielding.

yupyeah bit it isn't bad. Set it up so all you do is hit. Skip fielding and running. I play a bit here and there when I'm not doing something or only have like 20 min to play. You can get so much XP its silly and you're ranking up one of the best cards in the game. Just do it here and there and it isn't bad

If you skip fielding, do the putouts and assists still compile? I don't mind hitting but it if doesn't track the putouts it'll take forever to level up.

Yes they do. You can progress pretty quickly. And the XP and rewards through the programs and stuff is a ton. Def worth it when you are bored or looking to grind a bit.

In RTTS, make your ballplayer a C or 1B since they will get the majority of the putouts within a game.

Yes they still compile. I made a RTTS at SS (for assists) and a RTTS at 1B (for putouts)

It's bad enough being forced to do moments. I don't do showdown, so I am completing ta's by accumulating innings, which moments are a total loss for. Now if I want to max my cap I have to play a completely different mode, another total loss of innings. I already feel like moments are a total loss of time; no innings, no stats, and no pxp. Rtts is just more of the same loss. I play a lot, but [censored], there's only so much time you can give to this game as there are other things in life. I know it's my problem, but SDS really [censored] up on this one.

ok so it's not that bad lol. Maybe I shouldn't have said it like that.. I guess the way I took the OP is he is looking to get his SS up to 50s and possibly even change to hawk. And also not looking to grind forever in RTTS. If you're just batting, you will almost always finish the putouts and assists without doing any for the program. If not you can always do a repeatable hitting one quick to make up for it. In my eyes, making a first baseman would be pointless in the long run for him. Maybe not though.

There’s a sim glitch with RTTS where you can complete an entire archetype in like 2 hours.
