Salary/Point Cap Leagues

Iím not really that much into Diamond Dynasty but the last few years Iíve at least dabbled in the mode and I can see how it would be fun. I played about 30 games this year and almost got into Championship Series before I quit playing. As I was playing I realized the thing I think I hate the most about Diamond Dynasty which is how, eventually everyone has all Diamond, 90+ players at every single position. Starting lineup, bench guys, starters, relieversÖ diamonds everywhere. While some people might like this, I find it not very fun to constantly play superstar squad vs superstar squad. Whatís worse is that seemingly every player has a Diamond card so you can basically have any player with a 90-99 rating. A Wander Franco Diamond, yep, a Kyle Schwarber Diamond? Yep, because heís a had some good months. Itís just dumb to me.

Iíd love to see two modes in DD, one that has no points cap and another where each team is only allowed so many total (ratings) points for all their players. Sort of like a, ďsalary cap,Ē and yea, I know thatís not how baseball works, but letís be real, no ones playing Diamond Dynasty for realismís sake. I mean, thereís players that have been dead on the game for many decades.

Agreed. Some of us have suggested similar before and it remains to be seen if they ever implement something like that. Events are the only way to really use your cards outside of Ranked and the rules change for each event. So, while you can use a bunch of different cards from your collection, you don't have control over it specifically.

A cap mode or like "Silver and below" and "gold" leagues would add so much depth to the mode and using your collection. And as cards get upgraded or downgraded, it would add a shifting meta as well.

Would love to see something along these lines.
