I love that you can earn program points just by getting xp in any mode.

Jeez, people on here really don't like DD? Lol anywho it looks like they made grinding a bit easier, because last year that's just too many hours of forced mind numbing gameplay. Also, looks like they just broke everything from last year and made them into smaller groups. I can't wait though! New game mode plus all the stuff we already love!

I'll only watch the stream Thursday to see if there is any gameplay shown.

I am looking forward to playing DD again, which is not a statement I thought I would say after last year when I quickly burnt out on the grind.


And you are correct. DD is not a mode that is enjoyed by many of the regulars here.

I really got into DD last year...I enjoyed the freshness of it after burning out on Franchise Mode pretty quickly. It was fun to acquire cards and collections - made me feel like a kid again, with my trading card binder in front of me.

However, some of the content releases (especially the way they implemented the Finest program), turned me off.

Re: MLB The Show 19 Video - What’s New in Diamond Dynasty, Signature Series Revealed

I got slideritis really bad last spring and by May, I had grown so frustrated because of it that I stopped playing franchise. I had begun dabbling in DD in April, but by May/June, it became my primary mode (playing strictly offline). As a guy that collected cards as a kid in the 80s/90s, it was SO cool to see programs for guys I absolutely loved watching growing-up (guys like my all-time fav, Barry Larkin).

I just LOVED the DD program structure on 18. I had an "end goal" with the immortals, I had paths laid-out to get them. And these goals kept me going. Other card modes don't have an "end goal" for offline guys, it's just this never-ending cycle of short solos/modest team upgrade/short solos/modest team upgrade. There is nothing that makes me go, "Oh, THIS is what I am shooting for." Put it another way, playing other card modes offline is like playing franchise mode without there being playoffs/titles.

Anyways, being DD, I didn't have to worry about sliders and I could finally just enjoy playing baseball again. I focused on the missions, and played in the same 'clean screen' style I always do using the more ratings-based classic/directional/auto-fielding. I savored the programs, savored the missions, and had some serious fist-pump moments when I was able to complete some of those missions which I struggled with (I hate you Saltalamacchia). But I always had that end "goal" of getting those immortals. I of course engaged in the shorter programs (the futures program was fun, albeit way too short)...but I always had those end goals in mind. I accomplished most of what I really wanted to and went back to franchise mode in December with a very different perspective - the game is about having fun.

DD had its mis-steps last year, like those long "double" missions (which they later turned-course on and switched to XBH), "online only" immortals, and obviously in how the original immortals were rolled-out. The Finest program was very poorly executed and definitely left a bad taste in my mouth; but I also think this is why they are focusing on nearly everything being sellable this year.

Moving ahead to 2019; I'm nervous though. Will they go down the path of MUT and focus on these tiny little programs (which make offline play pointless) or will they give us some meaty, long-term goals to shoot for? The answer to this will dictate how much I play the mode this year.
