Restarting moments at any time.

SDS

This has been discussed on r/mlbtheshow and I think I'd like to bring that discussion here to hopefully catch a devs eyes.

Obviously we all make our wish lists for 2022, and I think giving us the ability to restart a moment at any time is one that is on many players lists. To explain- if my moment is to hit one HR with Joe Carter and I pop up the first pitch so I know I'm gonna restart. Instead of waiting until I either get a "try again" screen or the fielders throw it in and double pump the ball 5 times, why can't I just pause and restart immediately?

So my questions: Is this because of how moments is embedded with player locked RTTS model game play? Similar to why during AL pitcher moments do I have to bat with them? Doesn't that bother any of the devs in a "this isn't reality" sort of way? Allowing moments to be a stand alone mode with DH enabled seems like a solution. Or is this a limitation of the programming?

OR is this an XP issue? I know you get a small amount of XP for even grounding out or striking out in moments. So can we not restart whenever because it has to register the XP earned?

Finally- yes I know we're talking about a very minor amount of time spent waiting for the fielders to gently toss the ball back to the pitcher before we can restart. So if your first reaction was to comment about that, this post isn't for you and I don't need to hear that here. I get it. But it's something that is a QoL thing that I think would be nice if it was looked at for 22.

I agree with you. Especially regarding at bats for pitchers.

As for the other part, yeah it's a tiny amount of time BUT it adds up. It would be nice to fix.

On the other hand, I'd like then to fix the dashboard exploit for multiple game moments if they haven't already.

Why would you want that fixed? If you don't want to use it, don't.

That amount of time means nothing to me. That is really nitpicking. That time dont really add up lol. This would have to be issue number 1000+ I would want to see fixed. But I do dislike the RTTS interface in moments.

SDS

The number 1 thing I want fixed in moments is let my control the base runners. if a slow runner is on base let me be able to sub them out especially the pitcher.

SDS

Not being able to exit or restart until the play is complete was a fix for ppl quitting mid homerun and it not counting for the batter.

I don't use it, but it's an unintended (most likely) exploit that they should fix. Forgive me for enjoying doing things an honest way and when game developers fix exploits.

SDS

I just want to go into the next moment from the game screen, ala madden or reset the multi game moment without having to back out into the main screen

Just because something benefits players, doesn’t mean it’s bad and should be removed. You’re not better than anyone for not using it, you’re just wasting a lot more of your own time.

You're right. I'm not better than anyone using it, but that doesn't mean it's not an exploit. If they choose not to fix it then so be it. I just think it's inconsistent with other aspects of the game. If you dashboard during a conquest game you'll lose. The same should be true for moments.

On some moments you actually can sub out a slow runner. I've done it quite a few times.

that is good but when I go to the menu it is grayed out to sub, I have yet been able to do it. I still want control of the runners or be able to hit and run.

It would be nice that you could tell your teammates stuff like that in rtts and PL moments.
IRL managers and base coaches relay signals to batters and runners all the time.
so being a rtts/pl batter you should be able to set up steals/hit and run.
and control the runners on balls in play.
I mean in irl dont you think the batter is shouting to teammates "its gonna get down" or " go go go".

Restarting at any time would be the perfect addition to moments, that and the ability to pay 1000 stubs for one that is taking far too long to complete. I have at most an hour and a half per day to play the Show and some of the daily moments have taken up 2/3rds of that time. Just for one more option
