Forget stadiums, how about maybe some consistent hitting, some kind of fielding that isn't horrible and pitching where user input matters!

@SDS, can we please get offline dd modes? The only offline mode so far is still Conquest! Showdown is great but it's not MY DD team. Moments are fun as well but again, not my DD team. What are the incentives for offline players to get good cards if the only thing we can do with them is keep playing conquest over and over again?
An offline events would be great! Or a March to October type mode with our DD team playing 3 inning games against the CPU. The you can have rewards for difficulty, standings, and stats.
If you are not going to allow players to quick sell or exchange collected players, then you need to make the collection rewards better!!!
I personally feel ripped off with this decision! I have 2 young children and don't get to play very often. The only thing that helped me keep up last year was that I could user collected cards for a number of collection requirements and then quick sell or exchange when I was finished.
You just keep finding ways to try and make people purchase stubs! Especially with the virus going around now and people getting laid off and not having cash, you think you would tone down the greed a little bit!
I have watched a lot of the players league games and i have not watched one game that didn't have extremely bad fielding.
There are constant messages in the chat from fans watching saying how bad the fielding is and you can see on the players faces that they are trying really hard not to say anything bad about the game!
SDS better get a patch out soon as there are a lot of people watching those matches and it is not good for business!!!

Yes I am not very happy either. I understand their goal is to make money and for those that like to spend money on content, good on you. But I like everyone else paid for the actual game (not content) and expect a certain level of game play. I am glad that there is good content out there but they need to fix the game play as well. There are still issues with timing and user input in pitching as well as many others from looking on these forums.
It almost seems like pure stubbornness that they are refusing to admit that their game has issues. It took the players league and pro players bad mouthing fielding for anything to get done!
It's too bad as I really like the game and have bought it every year since 07. And since DD came to be, the focus on game play has been less and less and the amount of bugs/issues has been more and more!
They have been promising more offline content, and there was a bit of that this year, but it didn't included our DD teams! I preorder the Digital Deluxe edition every year with the hopes of more offline DD modes, yet the only thing I can do with my DD team is conquest or play vs cpu, which they are reducing the xp to in this new patch!!! So no more Digital Deluxe Preorder for me next year. I will just pick it up used 1 month after release and save myself the heartache.
Is anyone here happy...like, ever?
I think I’m general we all have a love for baseball and being able to play something like diamond dynasty is nice. But it’s extremet frustrating to see how fast they can fix them losing money but not gameplay
Yes my point exactly. It's really a big f-you to the user base! I am all for fixing exploits but what about fixing the broken game people paid their hard-earned money for!
From what I have seen of SDS over the years I think they are getting a bit arrogant about their game! I think at this point they will not fix it as to them it would mean admitting they messed something up! In all honesty, if it wasn't for the players league and pro players screaming that fielding is broken, I don't think fielding would have gotten any patches either!
@Rambo_11k said in Don’t bother wasting money on the game:
You forgot to mention the game controlling your pitch location too.
Pitching is by far the worst since I started playing the game in 09.
I consistently hit my pitching markers and keep throwing meatballs. It's complete bs!
Any game you play with your DD team even against the cpu counts towards stars.
I realize that but it feels like meaningless grinding though and meaningless grinding for 20-30 more hours is not appealing at all.
...but offline play is, in essence, meaningless grinding
It wouldn't be if they had some more offline modes for DD! Why not offline events against other DD teams that are CPU controlled?
Or a March to October type of mode where I can play my DD team against other (CPU controlled) DD teams. Rewards can be based on difficulty, standings/outcome based as well as stat based.

Until there is another baseball game on the market and SDS have to actually compete, they will not change any gameplay mechanics at all. To be honest I don't think they actually know how to fix it, as this game has had gameplay issues for some time now. It's too bad as this game has so much potential. But as long as people keep pumping money into what it is now, which is a glamorised card collecting game, they have no reason to fix gameplay.
<checks the forum manual for proper response>
See you tomorrow!
Haha I’ve said the same thing to many, many people. Games uninstalled brotha. Skill means absolutely [censored] in this years game. Not for me
Try Pro Baseball Spirits, the Japanese baseball game. Game play kills the show.
Can't wait to try out that Julio Rodriguez HRD or All Star card. Buxton's All Star Game card is legit. I'm still enjoying having Jim Edmonds out there for his swing, MA Bryan Reynolds is amazing and don't sleep on George Springer Prime. What a massive bat he has.
Oh yeah and Garret Mitchell for his speed and contact.
His AS game looks better than his HRD card
Yes I think it's stupid that his HRD card has horrible fielding. It's the same player from the same year so how can his All Star card have diamond fielding and his HRD card not! L from SDS on that one.
Just watched a video of the game. Looks ok but the graphics seem a little lacking. With a little work it might be a good one.
Yes agree. Those are ps4 graphics that haven't really been updated since 2019. Combining SDS graphics and content with that games game-play logic and fluidity would be awesome.
WOW SDS, just WOW!!!!
I just played the Phillies on Rookie with a stacked All-Star squad to grind PXP and won 4-1. Squaring up balls with a PCI bigger than the strike zone and balls are routine pop ups! Yet I beat the Whales god squad on Legend 4-0 for the mission in mini seasons and that was with just my regular squad and I hit 3 home runs in that game. With 1 HR not even on the PCI!!!
I have been playing this game since 08 and I don't understand how your hitting engine and logic has gotten worse over a 14 year period!!!
I think SDS should just buy Pawapuro Production, the development house that makes Pro Yakyuu Spirits, the Japanese baseball game. Then SDS should keep the content team and just replace the gameplay team with the Pawapuro Production gameplay team!
I my opinion, that combination would make the best baseball game ever produced!
why do so many of you question this? they are legally required to post this. they aren't going to lie on something that could be audited and result in a massive fine. pack odds don't motivate anyone to spend....it's not like the pack odds are good anyway so why would they lie?
They could easily lie as they would definitely not grant anyone access to server statistics to check. And considering capitalist corporate culture, they probably do lie about many things like most other companies! Profit before people mate, that's what capitalism is all about.
