MoM in Play Now

What is the reason one cannot play MoM mode in a play now? Just curious?

Re: MoM in Play Now

SCEA made the decision to remove the mode from Play Now and only leave it in Franchise. My guess is that not enough people used the mode so they removed it. I'm also assuming that since it is still an option for Franchise MOM was built in a way that required the development team to support it in multiple places (to answer the question "Why if it is available in one place can't it be in the other?").

I asked Ramone a few years ago in a Q&A if it was coming back to Play Now and he said no so I've stopped asking.

Hope that helps. I would also like to be able to use the mode outside of Franchise but I'm not holding my breath.

Hammer hope you can help me..read a post you were active in that addresses the issue of the lame cpu baserunner not challenging the outfielder on stretch singles...in my opinion one of the most exciting plays in baseball. Last year saw many of those plays where the runner would slide into second on close play.
I play cpu vs cpu franchise ( no season mode ) so I asked Lilly of the Valley what or if his solution worked but I donít think he is active any longer
Do you have any insight as to how to work the sliders to create this nonexistent baserunner realism....?

Oh man, I have been flipping and flopping on this. I went radical and bumped power all the way to 10 and decreased outfield speed to 0, reaction 1. I began seeing balls down the line being doubles nearly every time, and balls hit legitimately to the gaps not being cut off by outfielders (played about 20 games so I feel I was getting a good sample size to confirm these results). The downside is an occasional game where the power goes berserk. In a MoM game, I gave up 21 runs on 25 hits, I stopped counting homeruns. Give it a try, see what you think.
