How did MLBTS become MLBMoments?

SDS

20 is nothing but Moments and more Moments. Moments were big in 19, but they have taken over all aspects of 20 besides RS, BR, Events and Conquest. Showdown is just organized Moments, Player Programs are Moments, Affinity is based on Showdown which makes it Moments, Inning stars are mostly based on Moments by relying on Showdown and Player Programs, Monthly Awards are Moments, Evolution is Moments, Create a Player is Moments, and more. Who thought Moments were so great in 19 that they told SDS that we wanted most of DD outside of online play to be Moments?

SDS

The worst aspect of this is how difficulty levels have become largely irrelevant.

SDS

They introduced moments and they were considered very popular

SDS

The only thing i put on that survey was that if we keeping moments, atleast let me use my own DD team in the moments and that hasnt happened once. What am i playing for if i cant even use my team other than online and conquest??

SDS

That's one of the biggest problem with Moments, we do not get to use our DD teams much.

SDS

I agree it would be nice for some moments if we could use our team. I still think moments are better than the mindless stat grinds of a few years ago. I’d rather do moments than have to hit 100 doubles or triples again.

Some grinds should still be there. Just certain milestones Like hit 50hr w your dd team etc... we should be rewarded in that sense.

Makes no sense, we play this mode to build and use our dd teams. For the innings we should be facing the bosses with our teams in the moments. And showdown should be used with our team as well.

I agree, but I would still hate the part of Showdown that is all or nothing. I think stars or whatever should be awarded for each Moment within Showdown the first time that you do it. Then at least if you fail you gained something for all that time.

My only problem with showdown is the mini bosses. Should only be caring about the final boss.

this is 100000000% the correct take. the mind numbing stat grinding was beyond crazy...no thanks on that coming back into the picture.

SDS

The stat grinding in 18 was bad, no doubt. But i thought it was done in 17. That's the problem with sds, they only need to make adjustments, but instead they just throw it out and start over.

Even if they did make moments that use our DD team, they don't count toward DD missions such as daily or TA innings, and I'm not aware of any good reason why they shouldn't. At this point I can't help but suspect that they want to avoid giving us singleplayer uses for our DD cards.

SDS

I wish they would bring back the play vs CPU like they had in 18. Play each division on increasing difficulty for a reward. It gave you a reason to play 9 inning games. I agree that the moments should let you use your DD teams, the innings should count toward team affinity, etc. It just seems like the reason to play a 9 Inning game is really limited

SDS

Except Showdown plays a lot more like Conquest; AS is AS. Moments are like RTTS with boosted sliders

This too. The game, pitch speed, everything on say all star setting is completely different depending on what mode your in - conquest, moments, online, MTO, all of them. Why? A 98 mph fastball on AS difficulty should travel the same speed no matter what stupid mode your in, why the h*** are they all different? You can practice in legend mode, go online and have no chance against a fastball because it's a completely different speed for some reason

I dont get what you are saying here. You can play vs CPU 9 inning games just like in 18 right now.

But there's no reason to, there's no mission involved, there's no carrot at the end. That's what people are looking for when they say they want to play vs CPU with their DD team.

I just like to play I suppose. I usually play on HOF and enjoy it. Otherwise I grind out affinities.
