A Necessary Evil For us ole timers

There's a lot of things I like and don't like about diamond dynasty. A huge downfall is roster variety, teams all generally look the same about mid summer. The sportsmanship of your opponent is that of a goon most often however, it has a huge redeeming for us old folks. You don't have to waste time simulating or training like franchise models. Diamond dynasty is great for the folks that have very little time to play video games due to work and family and just wanna play baseball it's unfortunate that grinders and cash ample god squads waste time between fun games. Well accept when you beat up on a God squad thars fun.

I just play DD offline but so far this year offline has not been compelling to me. Frustrating player missions in conquest. Conquest extreme that pretty much will require you play on Legend or Hall of Fame difficulty. No team epics (yet), no career missions. An April program that requires not just online play but online victories.


I just see very little to motivate me. Yes, I would love to have that immortal Babe card as well as the immortal Gibson some day but I know that if I don't buy stubs or spend large amount of time flipping cards on the market that they are out of reach.

This is exactly my issue this year. I'm not good and I don't play more than an hour or two a night so I've just finished Conquest and all those missions. But now without team epics I'm feeling like I'm out of things to do right now, other than grinding vs. CPU games just for stats which I'm not a huge fan of. Hoping team epics come either this week or next or else I might be putting this game down for awhile and not sure when I will pick it up again.

Congrats on finishing the player missions. Some of those seem like more of a grind than the conquest mode itself.

Re: A Necessary Evil For us ole timers

I usually avoid missions and such. I've just been building my team and playing Conquest and Battle Royale. I';m also trying my hand at the Current event, which is playing with a team with a 70 OVR team.

If there is a card I want, I will grind and earn the stubbs to buy it in the auction house. Don't care about collecting, at all.

I'm absolutely loving DD this year.

I miss the Team Epics as well. It gave you a reason outside of Conquest to play teams around the league multiple times, kinda like DD's version of your own controllable season.

It's frustrating. The gameplay (well, besides pitch speed) is so much better this year, and many glitches were fixed, but they removed much of what made last year's game a classic.

Re: A Necessary Evil For us ole timers

Am I the only one who doesn't understand what the necessary evil OP refers to or the general meaning of this thread?
