Questions - retiring

SDS

My thread got locked and I got banned for a week because these mods don't like it if people ask questions. So here are the questions again, still unanswered @Collin_SDS_PSN @Victor_SDS_PSN @SDS_Jax_PSN.

Oh and if any of you consider banning me again, by all means go ahead and show everyone how competent you are, yet again. It doesn't matter to me one bit, because as of right now I'm retiring from these forums.

So, all the best to all the good people I talked to throughout the years on these forums. Also to the people that were on my block list (it's empty now), I wish you guys all the best as well. Maybe we'll match up in a game sometime in the future.

Cheers guys.

  • How does pitcher stamina regeneration work in DD (how much % regains per X games rested)?Is there a difference in stamina regeneration between RP/CP and SP, and if so, how does it differ?
  • Does the vision attribute only affect the size of the area of being able to foul off pitches, or does it also narrow/widen the timing windows, and if so, how is this calculated (For example having a vision attribute of 80+ gives you 5ms extra on the "good timing" window, or widen the green area on the swing feedback)?
  • How exactly does the clutch attribute translate in Diamond Dynasty gameplay? I have heard it gives a "small boost" with RISP when the clutch rating is high, but exactly how large and what kind of a boost is given at exactly what rating threshold?
  • Same goes for pitching clutch, how exactly does this translate for pitchers in DD gameplay? How much and what kind of a boost (or penalty) is given if the PCLT rating is at a certain threshold?
  • How does HR/9 affect the hitting outcome and generated exit velocity?
  • What exactly are the thresholds for pitcher confidence and what exact boosts/penalties are integrated with these thresholds?
  • How exactly does yellow/red pitcher energy affect the outcome of the at bat? Does it only mean locating pitches becomes harder, or does it also mean that hitting input from your opponent is more forgiving, and if so, what are the numbers behind this?
  • Does the baserunning aggressiveness attribute in DD affect how fast a player runs the bases, or is just a simulation attribute like some users have implied?
  • How exactly is a PVP match set up from a networking perspective and what would be ideal to keep the latency as low as possible?
  • How does a batter's tendency influence an at bat precisely? Are the timing windows for example larger on inside pitches, when the batter's tendency is extreme pull?

If anyone else comes up with additional questions that I might have forgotten, please add them in this thread so we can hopefully get some clarification on these topics. I think many, if not all of them, are very easy to answer if you have those numbers and if you're willing to share them (I wouldn't see why not?).

Thank you in advance for your efforts and I'm looking forward to your replies.

Added questions from other users:

  • does warming up a pitcher make any difference? @lewisnadasurf1_PSN
  • Does confidence effect pinpoint input and if so how? @Kovz88
  • Why don’t you respond to your community? @Bounceman75_PSN
  • Do hot and cold zones affect gameplay at all? @nash_524_PSN
  • Why is the feedback broken? I.E. the no PCI Homeruns @Chrono_Omega_PSN
  • What gives a larger boosts to pitcher confidence...throwing strikes in the zone or throwing out of zone pitches for missed swings? Do they differ at all in terms of confidence boost @EarvGotti_XBL
  • Does h/9 only impact how large an opponent’s pci is or also their exit velocity on squared up pitches? @jacksonvance35

Didn’t they literally respond to you and tell you they were busy doing other things, and that when and if they had time they would unlock that thread and respond it it?

In before lock.

Other things like working on the next mlbts game. Nothing will be fixed this long into the cycle

@raesONE_PSN
I totally get it, but hope you’ll stick around!

SDS

@raesONE_PSN I’ll have to make another free my homie Raes post again if you’re banned again.

SDS

Didn't even know you were banned for this before... These are all great questions and have thought the same thing about 95% of these topics. I don't believe it's difficult for them to respond or even explain these stats in a video before the game comes out next year. Sometimes I feel like the developers don't answer the questions that really matter, and the one's that would make a big difference in the game. Hopefully you'll stick around!

SDS

I don't know anything about being banned...but I did think they were all great questions that would benefit everyone who plays the game. I also don't seehow taking a few minutes to answer those questions would do anything to hinder game development. They find the time to respond to ridiculous threads...so why not respond to well thought out questions that truly are about the game?

SDS

I highly doubt you were banned because you asked questions! 🤷 The ban was probably due to something else, as in something that is in the TOS!

SDS

As a long time player I appreciate what you're trying to do but you're wasting your time man. Until someone at MLB holds SDS accountable for the way they run their company and who works for them, you will never get answers. It honestly sucks that this is what we get from them.. They truly could care less.. Who knows if you will get banned. You shouldn't. I guess it depends on their mood that day and what their own personal opinions are.. Seems to be how things go around here.. Hopefully you get some answers but I would imagine they can't even answer half of your questions. That company is holding on by a thread..

Locking this due to a thread about it here, https://forums.theshow.com/topic/41485/number-of-questions-about-dd-mechanics/237

The team is busy right now. If they have time to answer, we will unlock the original thread.
