SDS - Don't tell me these showdowns don't get more difficult when you are close to the TA player.

Absolutely ridiculous. I haven't failed the AL Central yet but now that I am magically one win away from Santana, I can't even make it to the final showdown. Knew I was in trouble against Morris when I got 3 good/good to start the game with zero hits. Ended up with 8 good/good or better and got a whopping one hit. You let me know when I can get Santana now. Same [censored] happened against Snell and love the 5 failures I had getting Gallo even though I had not failed that showdown prior to that. Guess I just lost my touch. /s

is there a reason why people are playing showdown? When I heard we had to pay stubs for each entry I knew I would be avoiding that game mode, at least battle royale has decent rewards at the end of it.

SDS

They don’t lol

Part of me wants to do these for you so we can see what your next conspiracy theory is. I feel like I've been reading this post every day since release.

It's really the only way to get cards unless you want to flip cards on a fake virtual market. No thanks. Zero interest in BR. Just find it funny how when you get close to the TA player, more good swings are right at defnders or they play like Brooks Robinson. I don't just magically start sucking on the last showdown. Plenty of good swings that just don't go anywhere.

Sorry, doesn't apply to "elite" players. Plenty of people struggling with showdown. I only seem to when I am right there for a player.

I got Gleyber by doing one MTO run, and you dont even have to do the full WS run if you finish with 100 wins thats 28 points you can do the HR's with yankees and innings just by playing online, but personally just doing the MTO on all star is the best way IMO you get 52 affinity points

I love how every time you’re average player has a complaint, some elitist comes in swinging their di** and tells them they suck and it was easy for them. We get it you’re great at the game. For the other 90 that’s not in the 10% we just play to enjoy the game and collect cards. I hate how SDS seems to cater to that 10% rather than listening to the overwhelming majority of players...

Maybe stop pressing then, there is no change to difficulty when you’re close to a player, to get Soto I beat the NL East showdown down 15-9 with 18 outs left.

Then don’t play effing showdown then, there’s like 6 ways to get a team affinity player.

all I'm saying is there is a much better, easier way than showdown to get FOTF players, that doesn't cost you stubs, in fact you earn stubs playing it.

yea, but if you're struggling with showdown why keep buying in when you can just go with MTO?, I just think its a better option for people having trouble doing the showdowns for FOTF cards.

i agree with you and great advice for guys struggling on showdown - MTO is really a lot of fun if you like broadcast style play that isn't rushed or stressed out

Weird, for someone who swore up and down last year they wouldn’t buy MLBTS20 no matter what because it sucked so much, you sure seem to have unlimited access to it.

Did you check the ping of the CPU before starting Showdown?

How does the game know you're going to finish Santana and not start working on Moncada or Buxton. Does it make it IMPOSSIBLE if you're chipping away at all at once? Wooaah

"Did you check the ping of the CPU before starting Showdown?"

Also wondering this...

Yea once I finally gave up I started MTO it’s really not that long either. You can complete it totally in about 5-6 hours and end up with a decent chunk of affinity. Granted Showdowns are about 30 minutes lol

yea they do take a bit longer, but you are rewarded affinity points halfway through the season and at the end of the season so based on where you are at in your TA stages you may not have to do the full 5 hours. I just found its a much easier more relaxing way to get those FOTF cards.
