I’m NMS and vegan and I need to tell everyone about it every chance I get.

Last year we had signature team moments, leading to cards. I loved the idea because I love using theme teams in this game, but moments suck.
Instead of moments, make a new US conquest map and instead of playing the current MLB teams, play each teams “signature team” with flashbacks/legends. Get the cards as rewards for beating each division on the map and then a boss to complete the whole map.
At least this way it isn’t mindless moments. We can work on team affinities and use whatever team we want.
And where has that complaining gotten anybody if the game is still the same? I’ll say it again since you don’t seem to be grasping the concept. There is no singular “best way” of doing anything... there will always be people who suck at the game and they’ll knit pick and complain about anything to justify why they’re bad. But SDS are the ones who took the investment risk in order to be able to create the game they want. So you either take it or leave. Either way, stop complaining.
People can complain if they want. Don’t like it don’t come on the forums.
See.. I can be a ****face too.
I remember when I first found this forum. It was probably back in 2011-12ish. The mods and devs were all over the forums communicating, listening. It was a very positive relationship with SDS.
Then DD took off and the communication stopped. So obviously that relationship is going to dwindle. I think when Ramone basically mocked consumers on a live stream is when the communication went from very little to none at all.
If SDS sees this, we just want communication. That you’re aware of the issues and working on them or even just say, we currently don’t know how to fix that and apologize. But leaving us in the dark forever (even over minor tickets submitted) is going to make your consumers turn on you.
The only communication anymore is… here’s your content! Completely ignoring complaints and requests.

I know for me sometimes I just need a little breather to get back on track mentally.
One game recently my opponent decided to start taking forever in between pitches, pausing the full timer length every inning. Well all of that downtime allowed me to be more patient and get into a zone and I scored 5-6 runs the next inning and he raged out.
That’s a great idea. Then I can just abuse it and friendly quit every game until I find someone who is clearly bad at the game.
Decent idea but you have to remember stuff like that will be heavily abused.
Kind of like the created stadiums are being abused? The ideal solution would be to eliminate their use in online play all together.
100% agree. Or maybe just allow them for events. No way they should be allowed in Ranked or BR.
This is my second year to play and this "Madden" thing is one of the most perplexing things in the world to me. I really don't understand why it matters if people play Madden or not. There is nothing wrong with people playing another game or liking multiple sports. While I don't think "Madden" is really relevant to this forum, I definitely think it is relevant to SDS. To me it would seem like there are three main groups they are dealing with...
The group that only plays baseball games and will play this game no matter what games are released.
The group that likes or is interested in more than The Show, but their preference is to play The Show.
The group that is seasonal and it really doesn't matter what happens, they are going to play a different game like Madden when it is released and then come back to The Show when it is released the next year.
While I don't think "Madden" should matter to this forum, I would think SDS would want to create a game that was relevant all year long to keep Group #2 interested and maybe even pull back in part of Group #3 whenever possible. Unfortunately, I don't really know if they are accomplishing that this year. I am in that first group and really do not care about other games at all. I would play this game year round if gameplay was solid and I wouldn't care if the rewards sitting around at the end of the game cycle were 65 Alan Trammel's. I am playing less and less this year and even downloaded F1 this week to give it a try. I play for 15 minutes and come back to The Show though.
The problem is that I am in Group #1 and shouldn't really be looking for another game in August. If there are people like me, I think SDS is going to lose a lot of #2's and #3's throughout the year no matter what game it is that is being released.
I don’t think they really care about group 1 though. Group 1 probably spends the least amount of money because they’re either very good at the game from playing it year round, or at least very good at DD (knowing the market, how to grind and be NMS easily.)
They are catering to groups 2 and 3. Which is why this year it’s harder to strike people out and launch angles are as random as ever. When last year at least strikeouts happened. The more random the game plays, the easier it is for worse players to stay in games. And it also explains why Griffey was so underwhelming. They could care less about content being usable for HOF+ because that’s where a lot of the Group 1s are and are in vast minority.
What’s puzzling to me is this is the make or break point in the year. People are either going to stick around or they’ll be gone with Madden or 2K. The content does matter for me specifically. I’m in the same boat with being a Group 1 guy but this year I have very little interest left and have very little interest in Madden too. In result I’m just not playing video games at all as much which isn’t a bad thing at all.
Is there any good videos/documentaries on the psychology of gaming? It’s just really interesting to me how there’s always people who say the game is dead (why?) and then also a group of people who always try to prove otherwise… maybe some sort of self validation to how they’re spending their time. I’m not sure. It’s just interesting to me.
I’ve felt like not doing moments after about the first month they were introduced.
They just crammed it down our throats too much. Showdowns are just moments. And yeah the way the CPU pitches this year makes them even worse. It’s 3-4 pitches every AB before you so anything decent to hit regardless of difficulty
Planning on skipping Madden this year. I’ll be gone when 2k comes out though.
2K? Wrestling, Golf and Basketball all seem to come out around the same time.
NBA 2K for me. I just play myplayer/park/rec. it’s a nice change. I only get it every 2-3 years so it stays fresh for me and I haven’t had it since I’ve gotten a PS5.
Lately I’ve been getting MLB every summer because I love baseball games the most. Usually alternate between Madden and 2k towards the fall.
Madden’s lost a lot of my interest the past couple of years because of how unrealistic it is. I get that it’s a fantasy and unrealistic to have legends/current/dead players playing together but I just can’t stand the out of position stuff. The fact that Derrick Henry was the most overpowered QB from December-on was enough for me to skip at least a year. It’s also a lot harder to go NMS even just doing a strictly Broncos TT. The limiteds make average cards 4-5x what they’re worth.
