MLB The Show 20: Diamond Dynasty Team Affinity Stage 2 Now Live

Team Affinity stage 2 in MLB The Show 20 Diamond Dynasty features 30 new Future Stars cards, new Showdowns and new general Team Affinity rewards, moments and missions. The breakdown of how it all works is relatively straight forward, with the new Showdowns adding the only slight change.

Team Affinity Stage 2 Showdowns

Now, the Showdowns for stage 2 are broken down into an AL and NL Showdown — rather than by division. The vouchers you get for completing these two showdowns are only for Stage 2 vouchers. So until you actually get enough Team Affinity points for a squad to get to stage 2, you won’t get to use the vouchers you earn here. The vouchers you do earn are worth the same, so a win in the Final Showdown gets you 20 Team Affinity points within the five vouchers.

The draft pool has also been expanded to incorporate the Showdown now going by league:

Team Affinity Stage 2 Missions

You get the same repeatable missions for stage 2, things like the Showdown exchange and the rivals exchange. On top of that, there are two new missions per team that will also net you +10 points total. One of them will tie into the Face of the Franchise from stage 1 for the specified team, and the other is some sort of stat requirement using players from the specified team.

Team Affinity Stage 2 Moments

Much like with stage 1, each team will also get a moment you can complete. You can’t do these moments for a team until you hit 80 Team Affinity points. The moment will then be worth 3 points for your Team Affinity if you complete it.

Team Affinity Stage 2 Rewards

Every team gets the same rewards flow. You can get up to 120 Team Affinity points when you get the Future Stars card, and the stage 2 rewards start at 80 Team Affinity points.

  • 80 points – team’s universal nameplate
  • 90 points – Team Affinity packs (x3)
  • 100 points – Ballin Is A Habit pack
  • 110 points – 3,000 stubs
  • 120 points – Future Stars Player
Team Affinity Stage 1 Exchange

There is still a use for Team Affinity stage 1 vouchers if you have stockpiled them, or would rather just use them to get some packs. This comes in the form of a new exchange mission where you exchange five vouchers for three Team Affinity packs:

All in all, oodles of content here (albeit some of it is gated until you hit certain thresholds). I will make a separate post where I show all 30 Future Stars players and their quirks.

  1. Not sure if it's a glitch or not, but when I completed my 250 innings to get to 70 with the Royals, I also counted as getting 5 on the new part. So completing the 250 innings got 5 points towards both parts? That means if you grind innings for a team you haven't got to 70 on, you also will have knocked out a large chunk of the second part? Unless it was just because I got to 70 so did 2 parts at once?

    Hmmmm, I'll have to look at it. I was sitting at 68 points and got a +5 for innings, but I went to 73 points with it.

    Think someone in the other thread said they got it for both for doing mto as well, in which case, winning Mto on veteran will pretty much complete both TA1 and TA2 in one go, which is pretty silly. Presume it's a glitch that they didn't test

    Haha oh my. But you would have to do a whole MTO to do that, so maybe would be patched by then.

    Reading on the twitter-verse that both Stage 2 Showdowns are on Veteran difficulty for the entire run.

    It is insanely easy IMO. Like 2nd boss you need 3 runs...and a runner is on base to start...with 15 outs...

    The AL one had a mini showdown on All-Star against Kluber for me, but the final showdowns were both on Vet.

    Hmm, I'm on the last moment before the final showdown for the NL, I'll go back and check what mine looked like once I'm able to.
    I know I didn't have much trouble with anything in this run until the diamond-reward challenges. And I'd be really disappointed if I manage to screw up the final showdown somehow.
    Edit: Yep, everything on veteran including the final and all the sub-showdowns.
