Black Friday Idea

SDS

How’s this for a marketing idea: Put together a Black Friday flash sale where there are special packs with rare players like Wliiie Mays, Billy Wagner and other hard to get players and put them at 1 to 10 odds, throw in 99 finest players and sell the packs for 100,000 stubs. This would give us all a chance to get players most of us otherwise won’t have a realistic chance of getting and at the same time would take some of the glut of stubs off the market. What do you think?

Horrible idea

It would have to be more than 100K. LOL
Second, this is brought up at least once a week. NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. (Though I wish it would)

We shouldn't all have access to the best cards. People should get some type of rewards for doing great things in the game like going 12-0 or making it to WS just like everyone shouldn't get a trophy just for playing in a league. If they were to make these packs then it should definitely be more than 100,000 stubs though.

Just remove the stub cap on those cards so there isn’t a line. I’ll gladly pay over 2 million for Mays if I could

There’s still a very limited stock. So maybe you get rid of the line but you get rid of the cap then only players with mutli millions in stubs could afford asking price. Who’s to say you would be able to obtain this cards with out a cap?

You’d be able to put in an order as high as you want so you could outbid other buyers. With the 1M cap, you can’t outbid so you have to just wait in line.

Exactly. And even though the stubs Cap is 5M to hold at once I can’t imagine any of those cards get close to 5M

How does that solve the limited stock. There’s not thousands of these cards up for sale. This is an earned reward.

I misread your original post, my b. This doesn’t solve the limited stock, but it allows players that really want the card to obtain it. Also, people would be more likely to sell if people were able to pay over 1M stubs, so there would be more cards getting sold I think. The real problem is that it’s just too easy to obtain stubs. Way too many people have over 1M stubs imo. Last year this didn’t happen.

So it’s an inflation of stub issue. Everyone is sitting pretty with million or more of stubs not just you. The problem is there’s no supply on this card. And you’re right that maybe why people are deciding to keep the card but at this point what is there left to buy? If they get 5 million stubs for Mays what can they get better than Mays?

SDS is basically saying git gud and earn the card on your own merit.

don't shoot the messenger

I'm sure no one will complain when they buy 5 of those packs and get 3 Gerrit Coles and 2 Ronald Acunas.

Yea madden does not have a cap and it sux. Pay 10mil for one card. I like the cap. I don’t have the answer but I do know something has to change. The best players in this game should be rewarded for being that good but cards like that should not be locked away where most won’t be able to use them. Lou Gehrig is one of my favorite all time players and I won’t get to use him because I can’t beat the extreme showdown or a few extreme challenges to save my life. Not cool

FIFA had players for 15mil and would still be extinct. I still prefer this current system to that.

You get a Gehrig and you get a Gehrig, everybody gets a Gehrig!!!

Want the access to World Series and BR card to be exclusive, then make those rewards non-sellable.

I don't agree to be honest. I think that players should be able to earn them for free if they do something great like go 12-0 or reach WS but that if they choose to sell them then that's on them.

I think these cards should be exclusive, but not this exclusive. By no means should they be given away in packs, but in previous years you had to either pay up in skill or in stubs. This year everyone has the stubs so you either have to pay up in skill, refresh your game/computer screen at the perfect time to get early in line, or just pray to ramone that you get the card before MLB 21 comes out. WS and BR 12-0 guys can still be rewarded without completely shutting off everyone else. This was never this much of an inflation problem in previous years. The only other time I can think of that any cards were at the limit were Harper/Bagwell/Alomar in 17, but the cap was 500k. You “get gud” people need to get a grip when two of the best players on this forum @mitchhammond24 and @raesONE recognize this problem themselves

SDS

If an item is in rare supply you should be free to pay more to acquire said item. Otherwise you end up with people trampling each other to be first in line.

If I want to pay $4000 to get a PS5 today, I can do so. Why give people millions of stubs and then limit their ability to spend them?
