First year playing DD now I'm hooked....

SDS

It’s your first year playing DD .. I’d say more than anything, just try to enjoy it whatever way you’d like. If you need any help or have any questions, feel free to add me on psn. I got you. Just have fun with it dude.

Lol good thing I took Gary Sanchez because I thought these cards were for reaching level 40 on the XP reward path but apparently Mondesi is a gateway drug to becoming depressed and out of touch with reality.

You didn't luck into pulling those diamonds. It is a way to get first year players hooked. People that get a lot of diamond pulls tend to be:
Streamers - So the players watching can see the packs are "lit" and go out and by themselves. Also gives the streamers the best chance of being successful.

1st time players - To get them hooked. If you have a decent record, let me know how this plays out the next few years.

Bad players - To give them better players to try to help them out.

Now, you could not be in any of these and get diamonds but I think it is really rare. These are all marketing ploys which are intended to increase sales.

You are probably correct. My first thought was wow this is pretty cool. But now, just starting out and trying to advance through playing games having to play against teams that their lineups are entire diamond rated it kinda sucks. I will still continue to play, it just makes it less fun trying to do it the right way no money spent and having to face lineups like that.

Don't listen to Demise, everything is a conspiracy against him, every loss is due to ping, nothing good ever happens to him in the game, if he would have taken the time to look at your post almost every player you have is from an xp reward pack, diamond mondesi is not a card that's available in packs neither is smoltz, Harper would be the only guy you pulled from an actual pack and KK as well maybe Bux if that's the silver if it's the diamond then no, keep leveling up and you'll be able to build your team up more, check out team affinity program for some good diamonds.

This is my first year playing Diamond Dynasty, and I gotta say I'm hooked. I lucked into pulling Diamond's Smoltz, Mondesi, and Harper. I recently got Brian Roberts for leveling up. I've discovered purchasing individual cards so I purchased Chipper 3B and built a pretty decent 'pen. My lineup:

Roberts 2B
Mondesi SS
Harper RF
C. Jones 3B
M. Olson 1B
I. Rodriguez C
Keirmeier LF
Buxton CF
Pitcher

My question is what do you think the best way to build up stubs is? I'd like to try and get some rookies, as well as some more diamonds. I just was curious as to some opinions on the best way to go about it.

Thanks.

Welcome to the party, pal! 😄
Man, I know how you feel! DD is addicting! It's so darn fun! This happened to me with MLBTS18. I bought it strictly to play RTTS to create a player and try to get drafted or traded to the Stros - never happened. One day, while just farting around with the game, I was like "What's all this Diamond Dynasty nonsense everybody seems to be talking about?"

I then realized what it all entailed and started with buying Equipment for my created player, and asked myself the same question "How do I generate more Stubs without spending any more money than what I put in to buy the game?" So I watched a lot of Koogs' videos on the YouTubes and I've been hooked ever since!

Here are my tips when starting out:
1.) Learn the market. It is the best way to generate Stubs, but it's also super easy to lose them when the margins aren't great and/or you have dudes that just want to watch the world burn and put in idiotic amounts that work to destroy your profit. And don't forget about that 10% tax they do on all sales you make!
2.) Learn Conquest. It took me a while, but once I got it, it opens up a lot of opportunity! The best is the US map because you can repeat it (which does take a while), but that 10 pack reward is always there. Plus, you can grind out TA missions/innings as you work the map.
3.) Collections. My OCD forces me to complete the LS collections first. I always start with my favorite team, first (which are the Stros; yes, they are hated and I get it, but I will always stand by my team #ForTheH). Then start putting in Buy Orders for all the commons for the rest of the teams, then Bronzes, then Silvers, and so forth. I finally finished all Golds yesterday and can now focus on the Diamonds. I'm down to about 15-16 LS Diamonds, and then that Mantle is mine!
4..) Play the game. All that XP adds up and the XP Reward Path is filled with things that will help you on your journey!

I hope this helps, man! Enjoy it! Good lucck & Cheers!

So I just played another game and won so I leveled up. I opened my pack I got for leveling up and BOOM diamond Anthony Rendon. First game played with him 2 HR. Was going to sell him because I have Chipper at 3B, but now I think I'm gonna keep him. Man I love DD!!!

SDS

enjoy the game, don’t buy in to the people that complain about the game everyday

MLB 17 was my first mlb game. Had insane pack luck. About 50 diamond pulls and diamonds were rare af back then. Now my luck has been [censored] on every game.

I'm really enjoying this game, but I always get to the same point trying to level up (Only at like bronze 55) and have to face 3 straight lineups of all diamonds and Newhauser or Oswalt pitching and it knocks me back down some and it's frustrating. Trying to do this with no actual money spent, but buying a bundle of packs is tempting lol. Just gotta keep on trying which is the only blessing of being stuck inside during this pandemic.

there is plenty of good cards to come, you want to focus on the Team affinity cards and the program bosses if your going with no money spent, the team affinity cards are really solid cards that will even the playing field for you, 2nd inning program drops Friday so there will be 3 new top cards to choose from once you hit 300 program stars. Keep grinding.
