What do you guys think? Too hard? Too easy? How long does it take? Would you guys say that it is easier than the April and May POTM grinds? Are these cards better than the previous months? I started the Zunino moments today, but that is as far as I got.
POTM Bellinger grind
I think if anyone says it’s too hard they are just asking for handouts. And it might seem long but it’s just because they released everything in one day instead of spread out.
A third of the community flies through them.. A 3rd of the community cant get any squared hit to do anything... And a 3rd lie. Moments make zero sense when i read through the community feedback.
The pitching moments took me the longest. Billy Hamilton ruined one for me hitting a homerun. But bellinger is worth it
I think June POTM has been very reasonable. Earlier this week, I stocked up on a bunch of cards for exchanges (and I guessed mostly right somehow), so I can get the easy points on all 4 stages. I’ve been playing a lot of vs CPU games recently anyway to grind stage 2 TA, so that’s another easy 5 points. And so far the moments have been surprisingly easy.
I’m probably going to get Bellinger either tonight or tomorrow afternoon. And that’s just going at a very casual pace.
Boy i can't hit Josh James. This is ridiculous.
Which stage is that? I’m on the pitching moments. Not a fan of the chase card so far. A couple of the agulier(sp) moments made me want to launch my PS4 into a wall
It was on the last Zunino moment. I finally beat him with a homerun and a perfect/perfect double.
It’s really easy
Look. Occasionally, you’ll get a couple pitches down the pipe that will actually have a good result. In those cases, yes, it’s easy.
Unfortunately, most of the time, Charlie Morton seems to prefer going to a three ball count, then throws a dot, then ball four.
It’s not easy, dude. Even when you get good contact, there’s the good/ok to the track or the line drive into the shift.
It has nothing to do with easy.
Anyone else not getting LeMahieu's hits to count toward the +5? I've had 5 hits with him and none are counting.
The Beli card is just beautiful. DJ also a very good look and a great card for the Yankees theme team. LS Bellinger is also the last card I need for Mantle so it’s gonna be EXTREMELY aggravating getting the free one before the LS. That being said, the Beli card is such a must I’m gonna do all the exchanges each stage to get it done quicker and I haven’t done exchanges for any of the POTM stages. Says something about the card and will put me back longer in the chase for Mickey :’(
Best way to describe it is.....Easy but boring. They really need new ideas for MLB 21. I am bored of moments, they aren't as much as last year, but I did ALL of the moment grinding last year. I have only completed the Bellinger moments and a few from the Team Affinity. The CPU can't throw a strike for nothing. I had to hit a HR with Zunino, after what felt like my 20th attempt, I finally hit a HR only for the CPU to rob it. Perfects are hit directly to fielders. I started the moments at 6PM after work, by 11PM EDT, i had them all completed. The moments Idea was great last year, but please SDS find another way we can grind.
I'm about 2 1/2 hours in and am just past the halfway mark towards Aguilar, so I'm also looking at about 5 hours. For a reference, I don't think April & May took me 5 hours combined. So this has easily been the most time consuming so far. However, the pitching has been beyond abysmal. I'd be surprised if 15-20% of the pitches I've seen so far have been strikes.
Working on Zunino right now. I am not a good online player so the online stats have been the hardest for me. Got matched up with someone who was equally bad and didn't pitch Kluber/Hightower. Got him for 4 runs and 3 hits in the first. He quit 3 innings later before I could get anymore stats. Then got matched against Kluber 2 straight games. All in all it took me 21 online innings to get the 10 hits. Also took forever to hit a homer with Zunino in one of the moments. Getting the 35000 exchange is now what is holding me back from advancing because the prices are so high for the gold catchers. Hoping I can get to stage 2 tonight.
The only part I find "hard" about the POTM grinds this year is the pitcher ones. On All-Star, even with perfect release, you get center meatballs that get crushed and there goes that "don't give up 1 run" requirement.
Hitting moments are easy enough. I even like that there are not too many multi-game moments.
