Well March to October is pretty much useless for me

Let me preface this by saying I am not bashing this mode. My problem is that as I get older, the first things I have to do is turn the pitch speed down. My reaction time just isn't what it used to be. Now on March to October you can select difficulty, but you cannot change the pitch speed. The problem I am having is that I am too good for veteran and rookie, but can't handle the pitch speed on all star without sliders. I get that it's a reward based mode and that is problematic, but it would be nice to have the ability to negelect the awards in favor of adjusting sliders so I can at least enjoy the mode.

Can you use Dynamic Difficulty?

Unfortunately not. Standard difficulties only rookie, vet, all star, HOF, and legend. Pitch speeds are extremely fast when you start getting up to all star and above. I may counter this by turning on guess pitch and only swing when I know what's coming. Because right now on all star with default speed I am late on everything lol

They should have just made options with a warning that if you changed certain things you would not get the DD rewards. Not being able to edit jersey numbers, equipment, stances, call up minor leaguers, and generally having this mode being so restrictive because of DD (a totally unrelated mode!) is very disappointing, but that's the way they are going with this game. Shift everything they can towards DD.

Agreed. Another mode I just won't touch now. Wanted to give it a try but not being able to adjust anything is very limiting

I also couldn’t care less about rewards or DD and find the mode to be a waste because of what you’re mentioning. I need to adjust sliders to enjoy a realistic sim experience. Also, the Jung Ho Kang isn’t even in the game, somehow. He finished the season in the majors and is the Pirates opening day third basemen, and I can’t use him or Polanco on my team because of the rosters being locked for rewards.

This mode was simply for DD grinders and nobody else. All of the time they spent on it was to try and bridge a gap between DD and franchise users, but actual franchise users will likely get very little to nothing as a result of their actions.

I also tried 3 of the Moments and found that to be uncomfortably awful. Just forced and unrealistic with no immersion whatsoever. The stadiums, rosters, uniforms and just about everything else you can name are so off or wrong with these historic baseball moments that it hurts my actual memories of recalling how they really happened.

All of this was just tossed together in the name of something to do for DD grinders and people who just want a video game, imo.

I still donít understand why they wasted time on this mode. I donít buy the idea that it will push players towards trying franchise mode because itís not franchise mode, itís not even a season mode because so much of it is simulated and out of the users control. I believe they began with the best of intentions of adding something to franchise but wanted it to include some element of DD and when they realised that wouldnít work or be popular branched off to create this. With rigid opening day rosters that wonít be updated, as soon as players get injured or traded it will quickly be out of date.

I like the mode even without whatever rewards there are. Itís super fun and addicting all on its own. It could use some tweaking next year but overall itís great!
