JFC, this game. Somehow they've gone farther in this than they have in any other format. I just unlocked the "Too Far" trophy for

Get those 150K in stubs ready for when the event is over. I flip cards daily and make about 15-25K/day. I'll just pick it up then. No way am I getting 40 event wins in that time span.

I've barely played Diamond Dynasty at all; pretty much all RttS. But hey, sold a Machado card for 30k yesterday, so that'll keep me covered with the 2X training point bonus for a couple seasons.

They should just rename the game MLB: Diamond Dynasty and be done with it. They've basically taken a horsefeathers on all the other game modes

Uh, no they haven't; Rtts and franchise are still great, plus the retro mode is a ton of fun, too.

After the 2019 Cubs won the WS in my RttS, they seemingly pulled a Marlins and went cheap and I'm left on a team that has a recognizable core of Bryant, Heyward, Justin Upton, Russell and, inexplicably, Baez (who is routinely the #3-4 hitter despite basically being only slightly better than he is IRL right now) after trading a bunch of people away for prospects. I'm trying to get traded, but acting like a dick to my coaches just seems to get me benched or threatened to be sent back down to the minors; is there a way I can contact my agent or do you just have wait for when they randomly call you during the season?

You have to wait. I tried getting traded off the Astros for three years before finally getting sent to the Dodgers in my fifth season

his price will drop as the week progresses and more people get to the 40-win mark in the events challenge. you might want to sell him now to get some stubs back and then buy him later in the week when he's cheaper.

RTTS used to be the focus of the game, now it's DD. It's not hard to figure out. Almost all of the improvements and additions are going towards DD.

Well they kinda re-did RTTS a little this year, so I wouldn't call it "taking a horsefeathers" but whatever, and they upgraded the graphics and animations and ball physics which obviously works for all modes so ...

I see where it's heading though. Madden, NHL, The Show, etc. are going full bore with fantasy/ultimate team based modes because the micro transactions for stubs are big business

the show's "micro transactions" are nowhere near the [expletive] MUT and HUT are. once diamond dynasty starts having caps on how many games you can use a card, i'll agree with you but not until then.

I'm not arguing against it's wild popularity. I'm preparing for what the game is becoming for those of us who aren't into it

I keep coming back hoping that conversation moves away from The Show, a game I neither have, nor play, and start talking about other games that I actually own.

But it's just wishful thinking.
