Extreme content roundup

SDS

Honestly I feel like this year's extreme content isn't all that hard, apart from the Yelich and Gehrig hitting moments maybe. I'm about to finish Conquest Extreme, which is by far the easiest out of the 3 in my opinion and nowhere near as challenging as the original back in 18.

Oh well, at least I got 2 new bench bats I guess. Anyone planning on using Yelich, Gehrig or Pearson?

SDS

Howd you go about it? Conquest I mean. I finished moments and showdown too.

I did the Twins and restarted. Now did Jays and Indians on turn 1. Planned on going Tampa, NYY, down to Nats and Reds. Did you steal to make your way?

I did the Twins, Indians and another one that's close to that area in 2 turns, then stretched it out to the White Sox and then restarted. I'm not done yet, but it's a matter of time. I thought Moments were the hardest, then Showdown and Conquest is easy if you're used to playing to the CPU on HOF/Legend.

SDS

I'm through showdown, almost done moments. I can't get myself to play hours and hours of another conquest. Idk if gherig is worth it for me.

Babe Ruth is better imo, so I'll use Gehrig off the bench.

Yeah I agree. I thought for sure the 3HR/4XBH would be a massive struggle but I did the first in 5 tries and roughly 10-12 tries for Gehrig. Rest was fairly easy

Never did conquest extreme. How ling you think it will take? I do pretty well against hof and don't anticipate losing more than maybe 1 or 2 times

Its not even as hard or time consuming as it was 2 years ago. It’s a bit of a time crunch. Probably 10-12 hours I assume without stopping. That’s just a guess though. Gehrig has already been discovered so it can’t be much more than that

Hard to say because I'm not done yet with the entire map, but it's very easy.

I think Pearson might be the best card

To complete everything it will be 10 plus hours for sure. Because you essentially have to take all the strongholds twice because of the restarts. Once for turn base challenges and then again when you complete the whole map. Because steals and stronghold captures also reset when you reset. I played 7 plus hours last night just to get 21 of 28 missions done. All but 2 turn based strongholds. And that was with no stealing fans to make games easier. Just straight simming and playing on HoF and legend. Also tons of restarts after failed sims to get where you need to go. The games are easy, and pretty fun actually at that level, but man it is tideous and time consuming.

SDS

I honestly wouldn't say conquest extreme in 18 was all that much “harder” than this one. 18’s just took 4 times as long. It wasn’t actually more difficult

I would argue that it was. There were quite a few games you’d have to play on Legend and you didn’t get to pick your 5th starter to match up against their 5th starter. You would always match va their ace

Well there were some missions where you had to steal twice on legend to make it to a certain stronghold, which I think was the Yankees, and then beat them on Legend too. I didn't think it was too hard either, but many people struggled with that and the setup of those missions were a tad harder than this.

SDS

18 was harder. There was no choice but to play Yankess and Dodgers on Legend and you had to have a perfect run of games to even get the chance

SDS

Honestly playing the cpu it dont matter the team you play or starter you face. And honestly I rather face the Coles, Verlanders, DeGroms ect because I know what they look like and am familiar. Just easier for me.

And hitters prone to K's, Judge, Stanton ect are a breeze. The cpu sweet spot for HR are guys with like 50-65 pwr. They always kill me.

SDS

Nah I don’t really want or need any of them. Unless there’s a part two, with Chipper/Griffey type rewards, that requires part one to be completed, it’s a hard pass from me.

SDS

I wonder if we will see warning and caution programs

Hopefully, we could use some better cards than these.
