Is the XP off?

SDS

Dont seem to be getting anything now, did these bozos lower it?

SDS

They did. It got nerfed.

SDS

Instead of fixing the RTTS glitch (still works after multiple patches), they punish those who don't use it by lowering XP. This almost forces everyone to use the glitch in order to complete the inning programs. In past years gameplay had issues, but inning programs and the xp path were solid (minus a very few glitches that they patched).

This year, the gameplay is much better, but this entire DD system is trashed. Instead of making things better, it continues to get worse as the year goes on. I'll surprise myself if I'm playing in a month at this rate.

SDS

They nerferd inning stars last year too, don't act so surprised.

SDS

I got 83 XP for half an inning online. What a joke.

Didn’t the last patch fix the RTTS glitch? I’d just started using it to max my CAP. Don’t care about the XP, and I’ll probably won’t bother; it was still boring as hell to sim all that.

Well what did you produce on the field? 3 k's? 3 he's? You get more xp for playing well.

SDS

Good I'm.glad it's been nerfed now there won't be 86 videos a week on how to get xp quick

That said these streams will "make content" finding the next way to game the system and then cry foul when there is nothing worth doing

You're not going anywhere and they know it. This is the shenanigans you get when there is only one decent baseball game on the market. It's madden syndrome.

Exactly, been saying for years they are morphing into EA lite, and need some real competition for customers. They are lazier with the game and it shows. They barely even communicate now

For those of us that this is our first year playing, it is a huge bummer that they are messing with the xp! After I do most of the collections I play vs cpu because I hate online play. I tried doing the RTTS but once I got going on DD I really loved it and the daily moments really push me to log on every day. However, at this rate I do not know how long I'll continue to play, especially if they do not fix this xp thing. I do not have time to play 5-6 9 inning games a day, I'm lucky to do 3-4. And for those that do not play online it is unfair to basically force us to play online if we want to complete the innings programs in time. I totally agree that this game seems to have maddon syndrome as the weeks pass on... really hope they switch back to the old xp of about 6000-7000 per 9 inning all star game, not this half xp [censored].

It’s a shame that there has been several threads on this so far and no direct answer from SDS

But a Father’s Day thread gets their keyboard out.

SDS

They're all about keep it hush-hush when it comes to issues.

Gamers: Hey the servers are down, what's the issue?
SDS: Matt Harvey's prime card is now available as a reward!
Gamers: but we can't play online...the servers are down.
SDS: We're having a stub sale!
Gamers: please fix the servers.
SDS: Here is a picture of the birds at Dodger stadium, it's a clue for our next content release.

LOL a bit too similar and life like regarding media reporting on real world issues

SDS

A week before the 3rd inning ends and they decide, w/o really telling us (surprise), to lower the XP per game. W in T actual F?

I want to be a fly on the wall and watch these clowns nod their heads at one another with no accountability.

SDS

Yea the XP nerf is bogus. No way in hell ill finish

SDS

Seems they have created more collections to make up for it...

SDS

The "community": Waaaah I finished the inning program early and now I'm bored!

SDS slows down xp

The "community": Waaaah I'm not advancing fast enough!

I have not run into anyone saying they were bored and finished the innings too quickly. I'm not saying no one complained about finishing to fast, I'm just saying that there are much better ways to have fixed this issue... just like how they add collections to help those lagging a bit throughout the inning if others go through it quicker then instead of 650k make it 750k and add more collections or whatever to try and keep everyone happy. Not everyone likes to do the collections just like others do not like the exchanges and personally I don't play online at all so playing a lot of vs cpu games is how i make up the difference. The biggest reason I don't see this happening this way is because content would have to come out even more than it already does... if they wanted to make it take longer by lowering xp I think 50% is extreme... start at 25% and see what happens then increase it from there?! Although now i just play on veteran and run up the score so I am still almost getting 6000 a game but only if I score 12-15 runs a game and get quit a few strikeouts...
Well good luck all, happy swinging!
