Ballplayer has Diamond defense in RTTS but not DD

SDS

As the post says,

My ball player has 90+ Fielding & Reaction. When I play RTTS games, it shows my Ballplayer with the Diamond shield under him, but in DD it shows a Gold shield. Can anyone tell me why that is ?

Also, is Reaction also factored into Diamond defense ? I changed my perks around to get my Reaction at 90 as well to see if that was what it was but that was not the answer.

Thanks

there could be the teammate boost getting you to 90+ fielding in RTTS or it could also be you are playing a secondary position for that archetype

SDS

Are you playing him in a secondary position?

Only fielding stat has to do with the shield, 80+ is gold, 90+ is diamond

No one's going to answer you unless you post this topic at least 3 more times.

Thanks for clearing up that fielding is the only attribute that has to do with the shield.

Saying that. Would 99 speed make up for 88 reaction? I could change my perks around for more power if reaction is not as important with 90+ fielding & 99 speed.

Thanks man

I'm using the "EL NINO" Diamond archetype, which is for a CF & I am playing my Ballplayer at CF in DD, so he shouldn't be taking the out of position hit on ratings

Thanks man

Speed is more def more important to me then reaction in the outfield

I would post a picture with my stats but can't

Basically I have 2 builds I'm leaning on

CON:104
PWR:112
Speed:99
Arm:99
Fielding:98
Reaction: 92

or

CON: 104
PWR:116
Speed:99
ARM:99
Fielding:94
Reaction:88

I would prefer the build with slighty more power but changed it due to me thinking I needed 90+ reaction for diamond defense. Now that I know that I don't need 90+ reaction for Diamond defense, I think the power build is just fine with 88 reaction.

I am so confused by the whole Ballplayer thing just in general this year. My RttS guy is at 90 OVR and he has the gold archetype (or whatever). But the only Ballplayer I can find for DD is a 65 Bronze. I thought it would generate a new card when I unlocked the silver then the gold archetype levels, but I guess it doesn't work like that? In previous years we would end up with several versions of our CAP in the inventory, but now I've just got the one. I dunno. Whatevs. I really should be working right now.

Isn't El Nino a SS primary Archetype? As in the Nickname for Fernando Tatis?

According to this guide, as well as actually looking at the archetype in game, it is for a CF. I assume the "El Nino" name is for what the attributes boost most (PWR, SPD, Fielding)

Best guide I've found about Ballplayer, as I was looking for a replacement for Buxton, didnt like the options and decided to make a CF Ballplayer
