Re: Five Issues With MLB The Show 21 Road to the Show

It's broken Matt. It started out okay, but it has gotten progressively worse with tracking any of my progress. I'm using pitching archetypes and am pretty much now seeing zero progress. The DD trick of throwing a pitch vs the cpu and quitting and returning to the clubhouse no longer works at all for me. I'm so bummed as this is the main Show mode that I play.

I do find that the some of the stuff around the periphery with the new live videos are a sign that SDS is not abandoning the mode, but it seems so oddly incestuously tied to DD now. I feel like we also need an explanation of why we are capped at 3 pitch types and can't have 4 or 5. It's easy to think that the reason they prohibit it is because of what it would affect in DD.

Re: Five Issues With MLB The Show 21 Road to the Show

I had a training session that looked like I was playing a game on my phone. Did not make sense to me.

While it is nice that one can use their RTTS player in DD, it should never be a necessary component of RTTS.

Also when I have one player it does not make sense switching load-in.

Matt...

Thanks for your excellent video. Not being able to create multiple, unique RTTS characters any longer is the one that hurts the most for me. I agree with you that they'll probably patch the progression problem to some degree, but I'm just not interested in RTTS any longer if all my players have to be the exact same body type and the same name. That takes away a big part of the fun for me.

Fortunately I read about how RTTS has been ruined before making the mistake of buying the game.

I'll just keep enjoying last years game, and check back in next year. Thanks again for the video.

Jeff

PS...I wonder if there are others like me who are now seriously thinking of making the upgrade to X-Box Series X instead of PS 5?...since MLB The Show is no longer exclusive...and for me no longer playable due to RTTS.

RTTS has always made up over 98% of my play time. It's so bad this year that I'm content with not playing the game anymore at this point. I'll revisit it after a patch.
