Extreme Reward guesses

SDS

For the extreme program Friday, which is going to include several 99s according to the schedule, what cards do you suppose it will include? I’m assuming 4 cards because that is what the Babe program had. I’m guessing Pujols, Chipper, and Griffey won’t be in this because those are 3 absolute fan favorites and people will lose their minds if they are in Extreme.
My Guesses
Andruw Jones:25 Points
Kenley Jansen:50 Points
Justin Verlander: 75 Points
Lou Gehrig:100 points

SDS

Gehrig is a good guess I think, they may probably make Jim Edmonds again since his signature version is still waiting.

SDS

Is this the thing where they have you play in extremely hard moments, like last year? I only managed to get the SS Jim Edmonds card from all that, haha. If they do offer a card for JV, it must be from his Detroit Years and it must have good stats.

But I kinda hope he's at the 25-point mark, just so that it's easier to build my All-Time Tigers team 😁

SDS

If Lou Gehrig is the biggest reward then That will be dumb bc we already got babe

They aren’t going to make the extreme reward someone super desirable like Griffey/Chipper/Pujols/Mays. Gehrig is someone that is good enough to want to grind extreme but not so good that anyone is going to throw a fit over him being the final reward

SDS

They waited too late to release this. Pretty much anyone left playing has a stacked team and only real upgrades right now would be LH relief pitchers. In fact, they might as well drop the nasty Andrew Miller on us again. I'll torture myself again for that card

SDS

I can see Chipper being the final reward. They made his IV card easily obtainable, I don’t think this one will be.

SDS

I seriously hope it's not Goose, Edmonds, or Miller again. Edmonds was fairly easy to get from the first set of Moments Extreme, but IIRC Miller was a nightmare. I don't even remember the requirements for Goose (was it some sort of Extreme thing?) but I know I never got him because it seemed way out of reach.

SDS

Have to ask. Didn't play The Show 19, so is Moments Extreme similar to say, what Conquest Extreme was back in '18?

Not the same at all. Moments Extreme is ALL Moments, and the moments can be insanely difficult. Conquest extreme was hard, but easy compared to Moments Extreme....

I second this. Conquest Extreme was more of a time drainer whereas Moments Extreme was brutally hard on occasion

Exactly. Conquest extreme just took a long time. You only had to play a handful of games above allstar. It took many long hours but I wouldn’t say it was that hard. It was also the best way to get the save/hold requirements for Wagner and Goose so that was a plus too. I really hope conquest extreme is included on Friday

I would only be interested in the Iron Horse out of that list ☹

SDS

There are still some old pitchers like Cy Young and Bob Gibson that need 99s. I could see them in there. Gossage was an extreme last year right so I doubt he’s be back in it. We still need 99 Eckersley and Kimbrel too.

And... all the pitchers wear Macho Man Savage outfits.

Did anyone here complete Stage 3 for Gossage last year?
I’m a pretty darn good player myself, but I didn’t even touch that Stage 3 haha

I kinda feel like the Babe Ruth program was essentially Conquest Extreme but without the map.

The Babe program was still a lot shorter than conquest extreme though. You had to play almost every game so you didn’t lose fans on the sims. I get what you are saying though. Better comparison for Babe is sig teams from last year

SDS

The real challenge for this year's extreme is when the CPU dashboards you just as you're finishing a stage, and you have to re-do it.

SDS

They released Goose to late last year for me to bother with getting him. Miller and Edmonds were great, though
