99 overall future stars

SDS

I hate that there are 99 overall future stars and prospects. I think it is so disrespectful to current veteran players and former greats.

Can anyone give me an opinion on why it’s a good idea to have these guys in the game over players that have actually earned that attribute?

SDS

I'm not to big a fan of them myself, but I wouldn't go as far as to say it's disrespectful. I doubt 99.9% of real players care or even give a single thought to it.

Think you might be putting a little to much stock in ratings.

SDS

We've come this far. At this point, if you're a top 10 prospect, a 99 makes sense. They have already doubled down...

Franco, Lux, Pearson, etc to come I'm sure.

SDS

As a trainer for an NHL team, I can assure you players know what their ratings are, and care maybe too much about them.

SDS

[censored] future stars.

About their own ratings, that is different. I don't think they are losing sleep at night thinking about 99 Mize though, that was my point. Disrespectful is the wrong word to use. More like, we're ready to move on from prospects.

SDS

I can understand the high ratings for prospects, but until they prove themselves I don’t believe they should get a 99. That would be like madden giving college draftees a 99 in the game. If you havent earned it you don’t deserve the highest rating

Lol Madden does that

Because it’s fun and one of the most fun things to do as a fan is dream on the next big thing.

Madden gives a rookie a 99 overall?

Yeah haha

Lmao y’all can’t just have fun with the game. It’s June, they’re going to release every body else real soon. It’s better now than later

SDS

It’s a fantasy game with fantasy stats, yes these players haven’t proved themself yet but I think it’s good for baseball overall. How many people knew about minor league players besides the big names in their own teams they follow? SDS from what I understand has worked for a couple years to get the rights to the minor leagues and finally got them this year so they’re proud of their deal by all of these future star cards. Getting retired players isn’t cheap as I believe they have to work out a deal with each player/family to get their rights. Just enjoy the content that’s coming out, my guess is that we are in the final few future cards coming out and the rest of the way will be current and former players.

SDS

Some of the problems with the stars of the past is that they might not have the rights to create them. If the could we would have
Barry Bonds
Randy Johnson
Roberto Clemente
And others
But by having an agreement with Minor league system that why the create the fantasy prospect with the diamond ratings.

If we dont get content we complain and when they try to do something with a game that has its season shut down we still complain

The main point is how they are completely fabricating unworthy cards. Content, blah blah blah, variety, yadda yadda yadda, you folks would be happy with a 99 overall Mario Mendoza for the sake of "new content and lineup diversity".

It. Is. Stupid.

A guy with a negative career WAR, and a slugging % of .262

Sounds like a shoo in to get a 99 by SDS logic.

SDS

Ahhh the Mendoza line... great stuff

So in other words no new cards and everybody with the same lineup. Great when that happened last year everyone complained and this year the have future stars and since people dont know them they dont like them.

There is no way to please the people because the people have all the answers.

So since they cant get more "legends" future stars are bad.

Roberts
Victorino
Keith Hernandez
Hanley Ramirez
And others arent legends and we have them.

I also play Fifa Ultimate Team where a Future Stars event was released and in that game there were no 99’s for the 20 or so players that were released. DD however, has a much quicker progression of players overall through the Inning programs etc. i think it is actually a good idea to utilize the different player categories and have high overalls from all of them. Prime, Veteran, Future Stars, or Legend. It keeps the game fun and has unique content. As a Twins fan, I’m hoping a multi-positional Royce Lewis gets released at a 99 ovl.
