Jackie Robinson program

SDS

These moments are kind of tough. Are these worth grinding or just a time sink? That 99ovr card looks awesome but I’m still on stage 2 moments and they are actually very challenging.

SDS

Most of them are doable. You can cut out a bunch of them by doing the stat missions though, I found that easier.

SDS

99 Jackie is amazing imo

SDS

End game 2B you think? I been trying to grind them out to pair him with Rollins in the middle IF. I just can’t get past these moments.

Agreed. I suck at hitting and he's been hitting bombs for me, even if the event on HoF.

SDS

I'm curious what the average time consumption this takes to complete?

SDS

I've been putting in a lot of time this week to move past the level 2 moments. Lots and lots of time. For some of them the key was changing to directional, waiting for a low pitch, and using square. I did get past them though and am close to getting that final card. Probably another day or two away. Can't wait to try that one out. Also lots of stubs, packs, etc along the way so if you have the time, I'd recommend continuing.

SDS

Some of the missions are a real pain. I spent so long trying to do the 6 hits and 2 extra base hits with the vet jackie. I could never get both extra base hits.

SDS

Directional is the best way to deal with pretty much all moments, if anyone didn't know.

SDS

I'm grinding out this program on a second account - yeah, might seem a little masochistic. Some of the earlier moments do depend a lot on random chance - for instance the HR at Forbes field. This time around my second at-bat was a moonshot. Last time I did that moment, it took me HOURS.

Now, are the card and rewards for the program worth it? Yes. Yes, 99 Jackie is a great card - great contact hitting with enough power to send some over the wall as well as good fielding at multiple positions. And the packs/stubs/etc from the rewards path are REALLY worth the time.

Probably not end game. One would argue Cano may be better, but I'd wager by games end he's a top 5 2B.

SDS

Yes, it's worth it for the rewards as you progress and getting the card is the icing on the cake. Those missions aren't for the faint of heart to be sure, but once you get past Stage 2 - it'll get easier a bit. Have him and Mantle hitting back-to-back now and it's an insanely awesome pairing.
