As we all know, annual sports events like Madden NFL and FIFA usually rarely make any major updates. However, MLB The Show as a sports game has successfully subverted players’ perceptions.
In fact, many baseballs games have tried to make some recent changes to their game content over the years, even MLB The Show 23 is no exception. MLB The Show 23 is planning a change to one of its most popular game modes, and for better or worse, players are looking forward to it.
Developer San Diego Studio announced the latest features of MLB The Show 23 update a few weeks ago. Although most sports games will make appropriate adjustments to the mechanics of the game every year. Among them, the most significant change in MLB The Show 23 this time is the change in the way this Diamond Dynasty operates.
The function of Diamond Dynasty in the previous MLB The Show is actually equivalent to this Ultimate Team in Madden NFL and FIFA. Players can collect Baseball Cards, both current and past releases.
This baseball cards have their own scores, with scores ranging from 40 to 99. Players can get it from card packs or games, or can redeem some cards through MLB The Show 23 Stubs. Players can use these Baseball Cards anywhere as long as they have them.
But in this update event of MLB The Show 23, SDS is also changing. It can also introduce some Baseball Cards into card sets and seasons to use.
In some limited-time Events, players can only use cards designated in some particular Season’s Sets. For example, if a player owns a Set 1 card, that card will always be usable throughout Season and will be a great addition to their team. But when Season 3 comes, players will no longer be allowed to use this card, only cards from Sets 2 and 3. There will also be a Core Set that players can use at any time. Including:
- Live Series cards
- Collection Rewards
- Negro League Storylines cards
Of course, players will still be able to use whatever cards they like normally when playing against their friends. But this usage restriction is a first for Diamond Dynasty and is a major change as well.
From a positive point of view, each Season can use different cards to help players maintain enough freshness throughout the entire game of MLB The Show 23. Players also don’t need to use only one card in the game for several months, and can try some new things.
More importantly, SDS also promises that it will be easier for players to get advanced cards in this Season. Good for giving some new players more access to some of the best cards in MLB The Show.
For MLB The Show players, building a strong team takes time. Although players don’t need to use MLB The Show 23 Stubs to build a team in this Diamond Dynasty. But this Diamond Dynasty is different from Madden NFL Ultimate Team. Players need a lot of courage and a sense of responsibility to unlock a team.
Compared with other games, MLB The Show 23 is actually a sports game that is steadily and progressively rising, so this change to this Diamond Dynasty is also an enormous risk.
Although there are still some unreasonable places, the card sets setting of this Season may revitalize the game, and may also attract some old players to return. With the actual change of MLB’s Season rules, MLB The Show 23 will also usher in recent changes.
