Are Advancement Goals in RTTS necessary?

#1rders0nthestormPosted 4/11/2010 10:23:03 AM
My RTTS player is a 1B in his 2nd year in the minors, currently on the AAA team for the Tigers. My question:

Is it important to focus on making sure I use my Training points to satisfy the goals listed in the Advancement goals?

I'd rather focus my points to work up my contact, power, and vision rather than arm strength and accuracy. I mean, how many times do I need to field the ball as a 1B, rather than the occasional fire to second for the double play or the throw home. With this in mind, I'm still concerned to try to up my shot of getting called up to the majors quickly. My batting average is currently in the mid .300s and I lead the league in BA and hits.

Just continue to do enough advancement goals so that you aren't put on the bench. It's what I did-- missed a few here or there, some intentionally, some I just didn't care to invest too many points in over contact, power, etc.

Just ensure you do enough that you aren't benched or worse, sent down.

Not completing all of your advancement goals will probably keep you in the minors a little longer, but in the long run it's much better for your stats anyway.

if you fal 3 cycles in a row then you get benched or demoted. so really you only need to complete 1 out of every three cycles.

Yeah, you have to do advancement goals but you can ignore one or two goals and you shouldn't get a failed message unless you completely skip a set of goals but it shouldn't get you benched if miss one set of goals. The main thing to get called up though is you need the skills to get into the big leagues not just stats.
