I just got an X after a win too. Was wondering why. Guess I got booted between screens. That sucks we get the loss from an error.
I like playing events over any other online mode because it is generally more casual. A loss is a loss. It doesn't knock you down a tier, like Ranked. It doesn't cost money, like BR (though I do enjoy BR this year). However, this event sucks. It is catered to the elite. I don't understand why they made this event. Usually SDS adjusts and releases packs or cards that are event based (like a program) and easily accessible. Not now though. Every single team has Ohtani pitching and FS Bohm batting cleanup. I could care less about how one fields their team. If they grind their time for great cards or buy them. To each their own. I just think events should be more evenly matched based on available cards within circulation. I mean, they just released FS Affinity on Friday and every single event team I play is stacked with them. I kid you not, every team is a God squad of FS cards! Every team. Do they ever play each other, I wonder? Or do they hope to match up with suckers like me that has all gold prospects and the occasional diamond just trying to grind a few online dailies? I really don't get the reason I keep seeing Bohm though. I thought that was the only purpose for the event grind? I digress though.
How do you hit Ohtani? Directional? Close your eyes and hit X? WTF is he a glitch or what?
In short, this event sucks! I have absolutely no intent on playing the next one either. I would never use Lux or Bohm anyway (though I could use the stubs from a sell).
I think, in the end, this event sucks because it is 6 innings. 6 innings of nerfed minor league players hitting dingers off my gold/common pitcher.
I like Showdown. I also agree there is an absurd amount of WTF moments happening with the computer and fielding. I just shake my head at the absurdity and then insert another quarter.
The sliders are still WAY up though. You can see a vast difference between stage 1 & 2 now that they are "technically" the same difficulty.
I agree, absolutely, that Trout is worth selling now to build a dominant team. The price is too high not to be tempted.
I packed 6 today. No joke. My best pull was CJ Cron. Who needs Trout when you have Cron at first base and Jack Morris on the mound.
I haven't been paying much attention to these marketplace prospect cards yet, outside of Affinity. Are there any good ones I should have my eye on? (I am referring to good cards, i.e., plays well in this game, not necessarily good players.)
Do you think an Anthony Gose pitching card would also include his 90 speed?
His fastball has hit 100 this spring.
