Parallel Grinding

SDS

I've seen a lot of misinformation about the most effective way to parallel grind... The number one way is the USA conquest map over and over... Anyone who says different is flat out wrong... Xp and like 75k stubs for 30 games...

30 conquest games isn't worth whatever parallel and xp you're getting bro

You don't have to play all 30 at once... If you are gonna play a 9 inning game against the computer play 3 USA Conquest instead... Trust me this is the way to go math wise...

A big chunk of this community hates playing against the computer including myself. I completed the conquest map once in order to get those Prospect gold cards. Now I will just jump in when I have to do a daily admission and get Innings with a certain team. I despise playing the computer and I love playing human competition. So I wholeheartedly disagree with your statements. What's the point in having parallel cards when all you're doing is grinding against the computer?

In your case I agree... But you are better than me at playing the game... I am better at playing the market (I'm not bad I'm 50-38)... I'm relatively new to MLB been a 2k player... This is actually my first year of 3 using zone hitting... Most of my wins are like 1-0 or 2-1... So that would be too hard for me to grind...

My mind races so I'm continuing my previous thought... But baseball IRL and in this game is like 90% mental if I go into a game feeling more confident with a team full of all 99s all P4 or P5 it gives me a mental edge... And sometimes just ruins their confidence... I get offered a lot of friendly a 😉

I'm the direct opposite.
I get no thrill playing other humans online., except for EASHL in NHL. There is no desire to prove myself vs. humans in basically 'push button Baseball.' I can play the sport well irl. There is always plenty to do offline. The point in Parallelling players offline is simple: It's still fun playing offline, and we're gearing up for the Extreme Program.
When I started playing games, there was NO online. That's what I grew up on. It is still fun, but at times frustrating to play the cheap, cheating AI, but i'll take that over toxic humans and freeze-offs that go on online!
So, to each there own.
There are people out there who see nothing in 🍕or 🥓, but I love them

I think your daily admission today is that “I don’t like USA conquest” 😬

The quickest way is play vs CPU game, not conquest

100%. Honestly the hitting in vs CPU mode (to me) seems better (fewer crazy double play lineouts, just as an example). Not a scientific analysis but I've played both modes a lot and I feel a lot less screwed-over in vs CPU. Also, in vs CPU you get extra bonuses for pitching in the earned pxp (QS, CG, etc) that you won't get in conquest.

@the_dragon1912 said in Parallel Grinding:

I would say no; in Conquest you get a tired pitcher every inning and you get to pick the CPU’s 5th starter every time. You also get 3 wins and possibly 3 saves for 9 innings

For starting pitchers quality starts, complete games, and shutouts count for PXP. You can't get any of those in conquest and they are worth more than 3 wins. Also in conquest you don't really get to choose your opponents very well. You only play the Rockies once in a full map play through. Coors field is more beneficial to parallels than facing the 5th starter IMO

Instead of simulating in Conquest, I play the hexagon games vs the Rockies in USA; dozens of games not only one

The marginal amount of xp you get different on pitchers only is far outweighed by the rewards of USA map...

Once again the xp difference is outweighed by the reward. Starting pitcher to slot 5 (mine are all 99 I realize most can't do that) I get 130 plus every game with starter x3 that's 390...
