I kinda agree, most people play this for 6-7 months and have never seen or used Babe Ruth since SDS paid for his rights, it’ll be the same thing next year. Some people wanna feel super special and grind every card to tell you how easy and free it is...3500 hours later. I’d rather SDS unlock all the players early but force people to choose between them without the ability to unlock them all until a much much later date. That way we’d actually get line up diversity with great cards day 1.

So how do you propose to make the SS Alex Gordon's type cards useable? How do any of those cards become usable when you can get 99's? How do you propose SDS drive stub sales throughout the year when there is no excitement of new cards? How do you keep people engaged?

Because you guys are still struggling to grasp the very simple concept (Which SDS already does to a minor degree) that you don’t GET a team full of 99s the first week, there just AVAILABLE the same way Kershaw Ryan and others were this past year. Just add more choices, and room for choices to be made.

Alex Gordon was useable for people that wanted to use him. He was quite easily replaceable at anytime. I would have liked to use SS Bautista or Edwin anytime before 9 months of the game had passed, why not make Edwin, Gordon, Goldschmidt and the other mediocre SS available at the same time? You can choose yours I can choose mine. I don’t need mine, yours, and 15 different everyone else’s. There’s no reason to make some cards like those available 9 months later in the 9th inning 100 star choice pack and Alex Gordon the first month. Some people’s teams didn’t even get a SS for half the year how is that fun. Just let people choose what’s the harm?

Why release Gossage and the final Moments extreme segment with a month left? If anyone could have beat those missions in the first month with regular diamonds or golds they should be rewarded. People would rather sit around and wait for another treat from SDS is the issue. Jump, roll over, play dead, then these 120 games and collect your SS Vlad.

That's not the point. You are not getting our concept.

If we can PICK any player, why would anyone pick the Alex Gordon type cards? If you can pick Babe Ruth or an example you used in Edwin, why would anyone pick Edwin?'

If every card available first day, people are obviously only going to pick the Babe Ruth's of the world.

Let alone that all those paragraphs don't deal with How do you propose SDS drive stub sales throughout the year when there is no excitement of new cards?"

Lol yeah just add Babe Ruth into the mediocre SS pool I was talking about. I’m crazy, I thought he go in the higher tier choice with the other 99s but you probably forgot about them because your taking Babe over Chipper Griffey Williams Thomas Gagne Gwynn Henderson Trout Kershaw Rivera Alomar Schmidt and everyone else. It’s strange, it’s almost like the decision becomes harder the MORE cards you add to the choice not the opposite.

And stop calling a thread you didn’t start and an idea you don’t agree with “Our concept”

It also sounds like, based on his wording, that they wouldn’t be on the market until late in the year? Because if they were still on the market, it wouldn’t matter if we could only choose one, people would just buy whoever else they wanted off the market. But making WS rewards unsellable would make lots of people very upset.

This just doesn’t make much sense.

Thicker glasses Boomzy, my wording never mentioned a market.

Why wouldn't we add him to the pool? Your idea is ALL cards being obtainable right away correct? The only difference is we have a choice and can only select a few a a time. So those few that get picked will be the obvious Babe Ruth's of the world.

And once again, you failed to address "How do you propose SDS drive stub sales throughout the year when there is no excitement of new cards?" I know why you are ignoring it's there, you have no answer, so just continue to pretend it's not there.

And when I say "our concept" I mean Trucker and mines concept of why it doesn't work, not the concept of the OP. But you knew that, just wanted to sound smart. It's ok, if it makes you feel good, you do you,

Thicker glasses Boomzy, my wording never mentioned a market.

But you said we would be forced to only choose one, and not be able to unlock them all until a later date. My point is that they would need to be unsellable based on your idea, because it wouldn’t matter that we can choose only one if they’re still on the market.

And also, people would just choose the best one to add to their team, or the highest priced one to sell. It would mean lower rated cards would basically be pointless, because nobody would need to ever use them.

Idc either way......as long as I can get Chipper, Smoltz, Glavine and Maddux without shelling out hundred of bucks🤷♂😂

You're forgetting that SDS kind of already tried your concept last year with the Immortals, which were available at the end of June.

People HATED it, because after they earned them, they felt there was nothing left to play for.

I agree with CharterBus

100% agree. Also, there will be plenty of people that see all these rewards, and what they have to do, and get overwhelmed and not even try, like in 18. It's a lose/lose for SDS. There is an argument to add a few more cards early on, but even with that, we got 30 starter diamonds and all the collections and TAs that were available. Props to SDS, I bet 20 is even better for content.

Lol why’re you so obsessed with me making SDS more stubs? I ignored it because I don’t need to come up with a strategy for SDS to make more money off stubs and bring it to you for approval. If I really needed SDS to make more money on stubs I’d suggest adding contracts, historic jerseys, position change consumables, training consumables and everything else EA does. Maybe we just need to pay 1000 stubs for each conquest game. Should we add more tax on the market? 20% 30% That would really help them fill there pockets no? Are these all great ideas? No, not everything needs to be based off making SDS more money to buy player rights so they can constantly release them in February again and again.

And nobody said everyone’s available and we get to ChoOsE A FEW eAcH TiMe lmao. You really want me to have said I want Mays Griffey and Ruth day one but I didn’t. At any point. You just keep making stuff up for some weird reason only you and Trucker have the brain power to comprehend.

Stop playing dumb. It's not about you coming up with ways to make SDS stubs, but rather seeing it from their point of view. They're going to do everything they can do to maximize profit, which as a business they have every right to do. Now whether that means putting all the cards up front, or trickling them out over the year, is only something they can determine.
