End of Year Community Awards: Best Team-Building Mode of 2018

Posted December 26th, 2018 at 11:45 am

With 2018 coming to a close it’s time to start looking back on the developments that have taken place in sports gaming and acknowledge the various efforts that have been made in the genre with the 10th Annual Pastapadre Community Awards. You can check out all of the PCA winners from previous years here.

The categories will include Sports Game of the Year, Best New or Non-Yearly Sports Game, Best Mobile Game, Best Racing Game, Best Gameplay Best Online Play, Best Presentation, Best Franchise Mode, Best Career Mode, Best Post-Release Support, Best New Feature, and Best Team-Building Mode. All winners will be announced in early January!

Next up for 2018 is Best Team-Building Mode, a category entering just its fourth year which has only ever been won by MLB The Show. There have been some close calls over that time though generally due to server stability that found Madden nearly pulling off a win but last year MLB was able to dominate the voting. Reception towards Diamond Dynasty was not quite as warm with MLB The Show 18 as it has been with past entries in the series, possibly opening the door to the other nominees this year – Madden NFL 19’s Ultimate Team or Out of the Park Baseball 19’s Perfect Team – to break through and capture the crown.

Categories now OPEN:

Best Story/Career Mode – Best Gameplay – Best Franchise Mode – Best Team-Building Mode
