What is Conquest?

Conquest is one of the game modes within Diamond Dynasty, and you may’ve noticed it when scrolling through the menus from time to time. Essentially, the game mode places players on a map, with MLB teams located at certain points around the map.

You’ll need to move your territory across the map, accumulating spaces and going into games against the CPU on certain difficulties. The game mode is broken down into the following phases.

MLB The Show: Conquest tips and trick

This game has a flurry of XP for players to gain, and it can be a bit daunting at first, but there are various methods that you can deploy that’ll help you out in the long run.

We’re going to run over some tips and tricks so that your Conquest adventure is vastly easier than it should be!

  1. Have one or two territories that you attack with that always have a lot of fans.
  2. Focus on enemy strongholds, but be sure to have over 8 fans on your attacking territory.
  3. Simming games against low-level spots are beneficial for time and can speed up your progress on the map.
  4. Always play your games on All-Star or higher difficulties. This makes sure you don’t get adjusted to lower pitch speeds, and you also gain more XP playing on higher levels.

With San Diego Studios adding new Conquest maps every few weeks or so, be sure to complete them as rewards are plentiful within this game mode!
