10 minutes absolutely sounds like enough time to determine a card's viability.
And no one in my house cares. So, I bought the beach ball pack on the first day and pulled rare round. Nolan was selling for the most, so I just sold him because I didn’t necessarily want/need any of them at the time. I didn’t buy another because I didn’t want to push my luck. Went ahead and bought Gagne in the market.
Fast forward a couple days and I decide I want Hornsby. Keep getting outbid. I decide, screw it. I cancel the buy order and decide to try my luck at the second beach ball pack. I mean, what’s 20k stubs at this point if I miss and just have to sell the base round. Then I see those 3 rare beauties come up. Hornsby is mine for almost 60k less than I was going to buy him. I was pumped. It’s the little victories in life.
Anyway, wanted to tell someone and know you all would actually understand the excitement.
For the sanity of your customer base, please make it so we don’t have to go out to the menu in multi-game moments. Please, please, please. I am begging. I’ll even buy some stubs if you want. Make this happen.
It happens in RTTS, so it is possible. Please do this in moments. Please. It is such a colossal waste of time to go back to the menu each time. It’s a no-brainer.
Please pass it on @Pat_SDS @SDS_Jax and whoever else I’m forgetting.
I have one small request for showdown. If we only need to accomplish hitting stats (like the first one against Oswalt), don’t make us have to mindlessly pitch the innings too. Adds to the time if you’re just failing anyway.
As cool as Trout is, I won’t be chasing
I thought of one today. Let us filter when making event lineups. Say, I want to put in as many Brewers pitchers as I can. Let me filter for Brewers. Really, there are so many QOL things I can think of that would make a big difference in how I felt about the game.:
The ones mentioned above are good. Now that we can’t quicksell collected cards, it would be wonderful if there was an easier way to deal with duplicates. So many more things I could mention.
Here are the MLB prospect rankings for these future stars, guys getting 92-and-up juiced cards. (Correct me if I got the wrong guy or missed someone):
Diamondbacks: Alek Thomas, the team's No. 2 overall prospect and No. 49 overall in the top-100 prospects in the game (not bad, comparatively).
Orioles: Ryan Mountcastle, the team's No. 4 prospect and No. 94 in the top-100 (But this one didn't surprise me).
Cubs: Nico Hoerner, the team's top prospect and No. 51 overall (again, not bad comparatively, but still juiced).
White Sox: Nick Madrigal, team No. 4 and 40th overall. Dane Dunning, team No. 6 and not in top-100.
Astros: Jose Urquidy, team No. 2 and not in top 100.
Angels: Brandon Marsh, team No. 2 and No. 79 overall.
Mets: Andres Giminez, team No. 3 and No. 84 overall.
Yankees: Clarke Schmidt, team No. 2 and No. 88 overall.
Phillies: Alec Bohm, team's No. 1 and No. 30 overall. Adonis Medina, team's No. 5 (!) and not in top 100.
Padres: Taylor Trammell, team's No. 5 and No. 57 overall (good farm system).
Mariners: Evan White, team's No. 4 and No. 56 overall.
Cardinals: Nolan Gorman, team's No. 2 and No. 47 overall.
Blue Jays: Kevan Smith, team's No. 23 (!!!!) and not in top 100.
So, needless to say, I'm not sure how you justify these guys getting 90-plus cards. Again, it seems like the prospect rankings, while maybe a little generous, seemed pretty good. These future stars are just so out of whack.
On most of the team's, it seemed like they tried to go with guys that are closer to high minors and maybe appearing in MLB. Except guys like Gorman and Thomas were Single-A advanced players and a couple were Double-A.
I've often thought about this MLB Players league. That's a ton of free advertising for them. And then to see the players complain about issues is quite a sight.
Appreciate the response.
I am so confused. Nick Madrigal already has the prospect card, which as an 85-plus is already a generous ranking. Why give another card of prospects? I understand trying to think outside the box and give us more content since we're all sitting at home, but I don't get this. There's going to be 1 per team but this is a headliner? An 95 Madrigal is the same overall rating as the current Mike Trout. Are you saying you project that Nick Madrigal will one day be as good as Trout now? What in the world? This is all so weird.
Cool. Thanks. Will try it
Anyone here up for some friendly games? Looking to play some just for fun (assuming we can use any of our cards). Looking for some feedback from better players on how I can improve, and would be willing to offer feedback too if I seen trends. Anyone up? Add me.
Does it even matter when facing CPU?
Now 1050 after hopping on quick. I did what I hoped, getting to Griffey again. Wherever I finish now is just gravy
1020, really slowed down how much I play in recent weeks.
I haven’t been overly concerned with prestiging guys this year, but I’m now pretty much playing solely events or RS and was wondering who the easiest players to prestige are? I’m not close on anyone but am probably halfway on some like Sheff, Biggio, Didi, and maybe 2-3 of the pitchers. Maybe Paxton, Pearson, I think.
Who are some of the easier guys to get done?
Why do events play so differently than RS? I mean, when it’s on the same AS difficulty level. I might not hit in RS games. I got to events and hit the [censored] out of the ball? Why is that? These are mostly all 99 squads in events too.
Yeah, just played a game I won. Got back to title screen and it said game summary not found like when you do friendly quits. It doesn’t show on the event main page, but it does show in my game history.
Where is the 99 Eddie Murray. As well as the upgraded Edgar Martinez? I thought for sure we'd get those. Of course, there are others (Robin Roberts, Brooks Robinson, Dale Murphy, Steve Bedrosian, Jack Morris, Troy Percival).
Also what's the harm in making the BR rewards a little more "gettable" at this point.
I was running Gehrig, Honus, Tatis and Machado. They’re struggling a bit lately, but I’ve had success in the past with them.
