Team Affinities

SDS

Im curious how many team affinities you work on and how you approach them. It seems this is a huge part of the game.
I have the Yankees at 100%, Marlins, Cubs and Reds about 40% to 50% each and the Rockies at 84%.
This really wasn't a planned approach initially, just kind of happened, but, since these kind of fell that way if been trying to just finish them off.

SDS

I just work on 1 team affinity at a time. I’ve got 24 Teams to 100% I had about 13 teams done before they nerfed stage 1. And now it’s made showdown a breeze!

SDS

I have all Al teams at 100% except BAL/KC/BOS/HOU and all 4 are over 70%.

NL I have more than half at 100%

SDS

I have them all finished but prob spent around 350k-450k stubs for exchanges, mostly stage 1 before the nerf bc stage 2 was just so much easier and shorter time playing. At the end I was completing showdowns in 40 mins tops, skipping moments once I got 6 runs. Didn’t plan on playing showdown so much but was the quickest way to level. Could average about 8,000 XP per 20 min of game play by skipping moments and just doing mini bosses/ quickest moments

SDS

I'm up to 21 done with stage 1, and 18 done with stage 2. I will continue to blast through the showdowns to try to complete them all.

SDS

I only have like maybe 5 or 6 at 100%. I do most of my TA by playing MTO. I just seem to have more fun playing it instead of diamond dynasty and having to put up with the random bs that happens in online h2h modes.

SDS

I have probably 5 or 6 to 100%. I know the theory is affinity this year is where the best cards will eventually come from. So all I really care about it’s Tigers and Yankees.

SDS

I blew off TA till stage 2 dropped, thought there were too hard or undoable like World Series but I really liked the future stars. . I focused all May and at 100% for all. I'm a 1/3 of the way through exchanges for stage 3, I want them all as soon as they drop. Right now, I find the exchanges are less taxing than Showdown.

I've heard MTO helps with affinity, is that true?

SDS

I have 3 at 100%

Been going showdown to get all teams to stage 2 and have about 11 more to go.

I am also using the exchange to help speed up the process. I really enjoy showdown and events so right now is a really fun time for me in the game

SDS

I find Stage 2 of the Showdowns very simple...problem is, Stage 1 is still an absolute debacle.

I recently tried Road to October...it’s more time consuming, but if you win WS, it basically covers stage one for that entire Team Affinity, so then you can just knock out Stage 2 showdowns. I was also kinda fed up with online, and there wasn’t a lot of offline stuff at the time. If you ever want to try a new chill mode that still gives you DD progress, I recommend Road to October.

I’ve only got like 5 done completely, and 8 or 9 up to the FOTF player...but unless you can ace the Stage 1 showdowns or do exchanges, there’s no real easy way.

SDS

I finished a few of them purely off of exchanges and showdown. Once you get past stage 1 stage 2 is pretty quick since there's 2 "stat grinds" and only 50 points needed total with an extremely easy showdown (unless its Lodolo and you stack your team with lefties)

It shows you what team you will face after the initial draft... plenty of missions to get some RHB.

SDS

I have 8 teams finished.

I enjoy 9 inning grinds with a full squad of whatever specific team I'm working on because... I just like baseball. I have been slowly doing Phillies and Tigers this way at the moment.

SDS

TA1 done, TA2 15 done. It almost makes sense to do the exchanges now.

SDS

I have the Cubs 100% done. Other teams part way.

SDS

I Was making good progress and enjoying it before they nerfed Stage 1. Kind of lost interest for a while after that. Will pick it up again before Stage 3.
