Re: The Future of Franchise Mode in MLB The Show 21 and Beyond

Sorry but I think that people expecting great things out of Franchise Mode in the future could very well be in for a let down.

I think it will end up being a horrible blend of MTO and Franchise Mode with, I am sure, plenty of monetization elements added.

I hope that I am wrong. But this is the trend across gaming as a whole, so why would it be any different with The Show? I mean even single player games have so much crappy micro transactions they are starting to ruin games.

Re: The Future of Franchise Mode in MLB The Show 21 and Beyond

Thanks for this! It is very sad to see the state of franchise mode in this game nowadays. Yet I still play many seasons in each iteration because I love the gameplay and game so much.

I will with 1000% percent confidence say that MLB The Show has the WORST franchise mode of all the major sports games. I have played them all, and it is just obvious to me for awhile now.

Baseball is the best sport to have a legit owner mode with financial responsibilities, an expansion mode with a full on team/stadium creator. This is stuff we had 15+ years ago. I do not understand anyone who can defend the state of the mode over the last 5+ years.

Re: The Future of Franchise Mode in MLB The Show 21 and Beyond

One thing I would like to see in Franchise is the ability to steer growth and development between hitting and fielding. Currently with the potential system players presumably develope across the board. However, in truth some develope more towards offense and some towards better defensive play. It is the rare player who developes both ways equally.

How about being able to go look back each season at what a minor league players stats were in the minors the year before? Would love to see that so we can keep track of how they are trending.

Doubt it, the Franchise teaser video was supposed to be Thursday and they never posted it. Today (on schedule) they posted Diamond Dynasty.
