Dumb question but what is XP, is that what you accrue that allows you to buy extra budget?

Re: MLB The Show 21: Launch Day Guide and Community Concerns

Great article Chase!

You did a great job of going over how the launch of the game has been through all game modes and going over the most important community concerns (at this point).

I've been using the PS5 version of the game and have really enjoyed the offline gameplay.

One issue I didn't see mentioned is that some parks during night games are almost too dark. This might have been a design choice by the developers and not a bug, but I'm not 100% sure. I do remember the same thing happened when the game first jumped to PS4 with MLB The Show 14 and it had to be patched....

I really hope they can add a search function for the Vault for Stadium Creator because it is beyond frustrating to find specific stadiums. It would be nice if they allowed you to add your teams logo somewhere in your created Stadium because at the moment, they seem very empty behind home plate or around the dugouts. Also, thank you for reiterating the Vault is located inside the Stadium Creator menu and, not the "Vaults" menu.

Thanks again!

So, it sounds like PS4 offline franchise and RTTS folks like me don't have much upside to 21.* I was already off the bandwagon for a day 1 purchase.* Now I have to decide if it's even worth buying at half price.

Nice article. I agree with what you said about RTTS. I think the core of many people's issue with progression speed is the Archetype progression bug and that many of them don't even realize that A) It is broken and B) it is the main mechanic to upgrade your player.

Old man reporting for cloud-yelling duty, sir!

Seriously though, excellent article. You definitely have a knack for this, Chase.

Re: MLB The Show 21: Launch Day Guide and Community Concerns

Can you talk to SDS about the roster vault issue for us on next gen? If they don't fix that, gonna have a MASSIVE uproar on their hands.

No idea why we can't download and then load rosters on PS5.

Great article, Chase. Thank you for sharing some of our frustrations.

Hopefully this early issues are just that and after they've been addressed we can all enjoy the game a bit more.
