MLB The Show 21: Daily Mission Program for May Includes Evolution Kemp and Bumgarner

The Daily Mission program for May in MLB The Show 21 Diamond Dynasty is our first look at what a full month of dailies will look like. We had the truncated program with an Evolution Jason Giambi and Roberto Alomar in April, but now we have a full 30-day program here. The Evolution Madison Bumgarner and Matt Kemp will be in a choice pack. You will have two cracks at this choice pack so you can get both players. There is also a diamond Breakout Gary Sheffield to snag on the rewards track as well.

One thing to note here about Roberto Alomar before getting to the dailies. Alomar has been placed on the ineligible list by MLB. MLB conducted an investigation into a 2014 sexual misconduct allegation, and the outside firm MLB hired did find Alomar in violation of MLB policy. He has also been relieved of his duties in the Blue Jays organization, and the Jays will cut all other ties with him as well, which includes removing his number from the Rogers Centre. The Baseball Hall of Fame will not be removing Alomar, so I assume his card that you earned in April will remain in The Show. That being said, since his card is one tied to the Blue Jays, I would not be surprised if SDS takes him out at some point.

I mention all this because Evolution Giambi is in this rewards track once again for May, but Alomar is not. In either case, I do not think we will see anymore Alomar cards this year.

Objectives

The points system for the May Daily Mission program is a little confusing because you’re hitting certain checkpoints, but as of now, there are more points than days in the month. My guess is certain daily missions will be worth more than others. Regardless, you should be able to snag all the biggest rewards by logging in and doing the daily mission a majority of the time.

  1. I love that they're doing this.
    That MadBum might be pretty fun with Pinpoint. His SS was my best pitcher in 19. I didn't use the card last year but looking forward to giving this a spin for sure.
    Beginner here to DD. It is my understanding that to be able to start my Giambi evolution I need to do the daily challenges, and that once I hit 5 days worth of challenges completed I will be able to start the evolution and the challenges will unlock. Is this accurate?

    Correct. In the daily moments path, it shows the reward for the amount of points you accrue during the month.
    Once you get to Giambi, you earn his Rookie card as shown in the tree. Then you can do the Moments and stat missions and work towards the 85.
    All the new content is great- but much of it goes to waste when the servers are down so much. I'd gladly trade any new content for the next few weeks for working servers.

    Agreed. But I don't think they actually know what the issue is and this is basically stress testing for them in a live environment.
    And then the optics look terrible when the new packs and money avenues go up without issue, only for people to have to replay single player games because the servers died.
    I'd happily pay a monthly fee to rent a dedicated server.

    You're right except some days' challenges have been worth 2 points instead of one. So it's not quite 5 days worth.
