Position changes suck but I've never actually been stuck at that position for long. I made a starter this year and in my first 5 games in AA, i started 4-0 with a 1.80 era and a .75 whip....and they moved me to closer for the rest of the month. I'm back to being a starter in AAA. As far as trades, they go with real team needs. If you wanna play OF for the Yankees, they're pretty locked up there for awhile so theres a good chance you're getting traded. They've basically made it realistic in the sense that some rookie isn't gonna come up and force the all-stars out of town.
Pretty sure the devs don't care about the people who don't wanna pay the money....they only care about the people who do.
I don't care about streamers but I've spent more than enough money on packs over the years to know that I'm not one of the lucky ones. Last year was the last time i spend a few hundred $$$$ on some commons and bronze. Every year its the same crap. People in here talk about pulling 6-7 diamonds and 10 golds from their first 50 packs and I'm stuck with 5 of the same 49 overall wondering wtf i just wasted money on.
I don't need some streamer who gets gifted diamonds by the devs to convince me to buy cards or not.
Biggest issues I've found so far in DD OFFLINE modes...
1. Power hitting is a myth, especially in the MOMENTS. I understand we're supposed to be trying for perfect swings at all times but the reality is, no one is gonna swing perfectly all the time. In real life, a late or early swing can turn into a drive down the line or an opposite field bloop. Its not always a foul ball when you swing a hair late.
2. What happened to the sense of urgency with fielders? I've been doing this challenge to get 3 putouts, no walks and no runs allowed vs Andruw for an hour now. No problems retiring McCann...but Chipper always seems to dribble a weak bouncer to 2B and for some reason, Altuve lollygags to the ball, pats his glove twice before throwing home....and by then, the challenge is failed.
I never get a damn thing from packs. Pisses me off when i see all these "Yea i got 8 diamonds and 12 golds from my digital deluxe packs" people. Out of the 60 packs i opened, i got about 80% common....a few bronze....3 silvers and 2 gold. Every year, i spend at least $200 on packs and i'm not spending a dime until they fix the glaring issues with this years OFFLINE Diamond Dynasty modes.
Maybe scroll through the forums here and you'll see multiple posts discussing the same thing...
No. Its not just you.
And as someone already pointed out "And some of these moments, even on veteran, are absurdly difficult when they shouldn't be." As far as i know, you can't play online and choose your difficulty. The MOMENTS game mode is in Diamond Dynasty. Besides the OP, numerous people have cited the issues with OFFLINE DD hitting (moments, conquest, etc....all DD offline modes). Some have even said the online is fine. Its not really "fishing for a detail"....its simple reading and comprehension.
This thread, in a nutshell...
OP : Hitting is messed up in offline modes this year. It shouldn't be this hard to hit a HR with Babe friggin Ruth on veteran.
People who have actually played the offline : I agree. Somethings off here.
People who bought 100 packs at launch and jumped into RS without touching an offline mode : I disagree. I like the fact that I'm not giving up 6 HRs a game.
People who have actually played the offline : This is about offline modes....
People who bought 100 packs and jumped into RS without touching an offline mode : I've hit 3 HRs in 8 games so far. Its realistic.
People who have actually played the offline : But once again.....
I never pull diamonds. 3 best cards i got from my 50 packs were Ohtani, Sean Doolittle and Carlos Martinez...and they're all low 80s.
I don't mind the challenges as much as i mind the type of challenges. Every time i get someone in an 0-2 count, i get to choose between getting a ground ball out or a fly ball out....no option for a strikeout. And of course, after i get the K i get to see "CHALLENGE FAILED" flash on my screen. In what world is a strikeout considered a failure as a pitcher?
You upgrade your attributes by playing the game...
Some of you are way too focused with the online play. The OP specifically pointed to offline modes in DD (moments) as being the bigger problem.
I just tried Harpers first MLB HR moment and gave up after a half hour. Its amazing that they expect you to hit a HR when the pitcher is giving absolutely nothing to hit. The power swing is a myth.
Brandon Belt lol
I was lucky enough to get a drive to the gap and i ended up pushing for an inside-the-park. I was actually surprised it counted.
Took me about 30-45 minutes last night to get that. Doesn't really help that everything is in black and white so it kinda feels harder to see the ball. The Willie Mays homerun, i had to leg out an inside-the-park because everything else i hit just falls into the fielders glove.
You know theres something off with the hitting when you can't hit a homerun on veteran with Babe Ruth.
And all this time i thought i just lost my swing. I can't make solid contact on anything in Moments. I've done a few of the Mays and Ruth moments but geezus it seems like its more luck than skill. It seems like the only way to get solid contact is to get a perfect swing and 70% of those are line drives directly at the fielder. I'm feeling like being a hair late or early shouldn't be an automatic foul either. Realistically, some of those would drop in for a hit somewhere.
Yup. I can't even login.
You can thank the douche bags that were exploiting this by using the link with multiple accounts to get extra codes for packs and stubs. As of now, we aren't getting them.
Things like this seriously make me hate people sometimes. People always need to find some shortcuts or take the easy way.
Every time a big game gets released, people always ask this question. Some people have gotten advanced copies from the devs....some people order through Amazon or another online site and get their physical copies 2-3 days early. This isn't a new thing.
I'll be up and ready to play. I really wish deluxe edition got 3 day early access again.
My only problem with using my pick on a pitcher is the fact that you're not guaranteed to have that pitcher starting. It would just be easier to grind out stubs and buy some high end gold pitchers on the market to fill the rotation.
Playing The Division 2
So you finally got something you were after....and now you're just not gonna play anymore? Makes sense...
