RS Reward Path needs improvement

SDS

Grinding out the 350 innings would have more incentive…and fun…if the rewards along the way were better. If they want us to play online then the online rewards need to be worth it except for just the cards at the end. The gameplay is already miserable enough….getting a few standard packs or a few hundred stubs doesn’t make it any more tolerable.

SDS

Jesus Christ shut up. Your paragraph of crying makes no fucken sense anyways.

I mean they could just go back to no reward path, make World Series or bust. To me if anything maybe drop the required number of innings. If you want the good rewards you gotta win, if you are going to the innings route then it should be a grind. It's like how in TA if you played conquest instead of showdown it would take longer.

For the record: I'm not gatekeeping here, I'm not a WS player. Average hitter at best, I just think there should be a grind if you are taking the easy path.

Didn't they literally JUST do that?

In 6 months, we've gone from infinity to 350. That's less than 2 games a day. You'll live.

I haven't really played Ranked so I wasn't complaining about the number nor did I know they dropped the number. I didn't think 400 innings was necessarily bad.

There shouldn't be an inning requirement. They softened the reward structure because people like you were crying that world series cards were too expensive. So now they made it attainable by everyone and someone like you is still crying. Go find something else to play you are misery in human form.

i think its solid enough this year i get double the Ws reward if i make it there that is

It was actually pretty straight forward. Maybe understanding just isn't your thing

SDS

What is wrong with you people? He wasn't crying about the grind. He was simply saying that during the grind they should add more rewards. Quit being so sensitive.

I think we found Parradox's original account

Players who can’t make WS should have a hard grind in order to get the rewards. I’m happy this is the one part of the game where they don’t give “everyone a trophy”.

The third sentence negates the first sentence. The second sentence says make the rewards worth it EXCEPT the ones at the end.

I made a post about this last year:

In ‘20, each tier was worth it because it came a 7,500 - 15,000xp bonus (back when there was an XP rewards path).

In ‘21 they removed the XP and left the other crappy rewards the same. You get a gold card and 1K stubs for making division series !? Only about 11% of all RS players make it to DS, and you get nothing as a reward.

SDS

Completely get the point OP is making. RS is the least rewarding and you can say that it is not about the rewards…but that is what ultimate team models are about. If you grind out 350 innings you get…

6 Show Packs
1 BIAH Pack
1 Headliner Pack
5000 Stubs
1 85/66 Pennant Race Diamond
1 WS Diamond

If you grind out 100 points with BR…
12 Show Packs (+1 for each entry)
1 Headliner Pack
4 Bronze BR Rewards
4 Silver BR Rewards
4 Gold BR Rewards
4000 Stubs
1 92 Diamond Program Reward
1 Flawless Diamond

This isn’t mentioning Golds and Diamonds you can get for win streak rewards which can really pay off if you are good enough. I am an average player and didn’t play the greatest this BR. I think it took me around 150 innings to hit 100 points. I do consider BR to be the most rewarding program, but I also feel RS is the least rewarding.

Is it 2 games or 18 innings? I played 60 some games and barely got over 400 innings last season.

Suk my C….after you do that, show me where I was crying about WS rewards. Seriously do it and don’t fucken hide like a B

As someone who will never make WS or get the rewards from the innings path because I don't have that kind of time... I agree 100%.

If you can't make WS naturally then getting the rewards in a secondary way should be more difficult.

Exactly. Too many people on here who defend SDS at all costs…..can’t even ask for better rewards without them getting hostile.

OP never said to make it easier. He said to add more along the way than to just have one big reward at the end.
