What makes this game mode stand out unlike Battle Royale is that users are given on 10 rounds to draft the base or backbone of their team. As you progress the rest of your team is acquired through rewards for the ultimate culmination of a boss battle. Showdown is all about hitting, and what makes the mode so addictive are the perks that can be added to your team based upon your play style. Essentially, perks provide boosts to your team in certain in-game situations. Road to The Show and Moments players will immediately recognize this feature.
Showdown is filled with massive amounts of content and rewards that also help with other programs such as the First Inning and Team Affinity. Players will spend a substantial amount of time in this program as the content and rewards are overwhelming. Though it is initially locked behind a stub wall similar to Battle Royale, the awards and content more than makes up for the initial entry fee.
Despite the program stars and the many rewards you receive for playing towards each inning, the low spot for Showdown is the entry fee attached to it like Battle Royale.
