Wtf is this new event

SDS

Silver & Bronze Pitchers
⚾Bronze & Common Pos. Players
⚾Difficulty: HoF
⚾3-Inning Games

Are you serious at least in the first event we could work towards prestiging pitchers. What is the point of this event? I keep thinking this is SDS doing testing on contact hitters.

SDS

Make sure you put Niko Goodrum in your lineup. He rakes on HOF

SDS

Buttt cheeks

SDS

Events were never supposed to be about prestiging. Back to basics. I like it. You can still use bronze power hitters such as Gary Sanchez and it is not at Forbes field. Thats a W to me

SDS

Silly event.

SDS

absolutely ridiculous when you consider how long many cards take to acquire

truly who wants to play with all bronzes at this point in the year

horrible decision making on their part

It's at Griffith. That's somehow better?

Events at this point into the game should definitely be about prestiging you do realize it’s September there’s only 5 months left in the games cycle and there’s a [censored] ton of guys you can prestige. Also None of the 3 rewards are very good or would start in most teams so grinding for them is just about getting more cards for trout which will turn off a lot of players. In the 1st event the wait was long to get a game in imagine now.

So I was anti-deadball in the beginning but have since played just shy of 50 games and am kind of enjoying it. Especially when you pop a HR with these clowns (2 Waters, 1 Howie) though Inside Edge makes it such that you can get guys easily with power in the 70s if not 80s.

But pitching >>> hitting in the current scheme so making it that we need silvers will mix things up. Though I suspect like Moonshot we'll all figure out the same SPs to use in time.

It’s a change of pace but it’s September this could’ve been cool in the beginning of the year when most players didn’t have a lot of diamonds and golds to play with. I enjoyed the first event bc i could work towards prestiging pitchers and use guys like victarino & 86 gywnn who i only used a bit until now.

And that wasn’t a problem with events with practically the exact same rules for the last 3 years. I will continue to preach that prestiging ruined events. Plenty of people played events like this before 20. Now that you can prestige the same people don’t play these events because they want that sense of accomplishment for +3 attributes that make a minimal impact on the card. Events was a great mode before prestige cards were introduced. It isn’t great anymore. See a trend there?

SDS

Pretty safe bet that after Dead Ball 3 we get into PS Events.......won't need any Mets cards.

For me the concept of prestige is cool what makes it annoying is the amount of stats you have to accumulate. I understand bc of Covid many are home and many have them done but imagine if this was a normal year I imagine only a handful would have prestige cards. So to have events tailored to helping guys that don’t have the time was cool.

Yeah I like the concept of prestige too, but it was poorly executed. I think it should have been a +3 in stats and change the diamond to red on the same card(work like an inside edge boost), instead of giving you a whole new card. SDS even said when prestige was first announced that it was meant to be a trophy for using a card for a long period of time(anyone who got Mantle pretty early was always going to get it done naturally). It turned into people thinking its a task they need to do, like stat missions from 18. The original intent was surely not to have people change their team names to _____ with ______ and I quit or hitting and quitting event games.

SDS

Noooooooooo, I want to prestige my pitchers. 😞

Good for you, i have 6 wins, all from people who quit playing at some point in the game, and i just cant even bring myself to play this garbage. Id rather mindlessly flip cards for an hour than subject myself to more of this.
