@tommynachoes said in How many packs are you opening Day 1:
Till I get trout
Don’t do that. Do what I did and get trout as a post game reward for a veteran conquest game against the tigers.
I love this game and community really fortunate the game released when it did now many of us are on lock down.
I think you’re in the wrong forum. This post is too positive. Ha. Just kidding. I agree. I don’t know what I would do with myself if I wasn’t able to check out this forum every hour and see what’s going on.
See this as a game to enjoy, not a grind to finish. If MTO has similar DD rewards as last year, I want to do a couple of those before I start to get into the other modes. Or, if conquest has more awards than it did last year, I might do that.
I want to build a DD team and collect cards and play RS, but I don’t want it to feel like work. I have to remind myself that it’s okay to get an event reward or inning reward a day or week later and sacrifice the stubs for a decent night or 50 nights’ sleep. Or that it’s even okay to play with the “non best” cards.
Interesting point, but maybe some things to consider
Will the use of leagues be as popular with a lot of the players that drive the market? For those people that can’t commit to playing every day, they might only play rs or br or conquest. So, they’ll sell their backup diamonds to upgrade.
What will the initial market look like? Last year we had 30 initial diamonds pretty much available on day one for anybody.
I’m not saying you’re wrong. I’m just hoping the ls cards are as affordable as they were last year. In 2018 the prices were so high, I felt I had no chance to get vlad. Last year, I was able to get Mays before April was over.
Tell me why I’m wrong. This is a cool topic.
MTO is my favorite mode in this game, and I know a lot of people ask questions about it. I try to answer a lot of them in my answers in this thread, especially those pertaining to time. So...
Short Answer: I have done 4
Dodgers (HOF and AS): 11.5 hours
Padres (AS): 12 hours
Angels (HOF and AS): 11.5 hours
Pirates (Veteran): 6.5 hours
Tigers (Veteran): 7.5 hours
Long Answer: Read lower in the thread and I do breakdowns of each one.
It does work sometimes on feeds from the first basemen if the pitcher is going to tag the runner. Other than that, I think it’s just people wanting to feel like they are doing something.
I did the Astros and got 14 and 14. Then 6,12, and 18 for each round of playoffs. So I would imagine it is about the same.
You’re right. It is 14. 11 on veteran and 17 on hof. I forgot how to do math.
Just started a Kansas City Royals March To October and the first trade I made was for Eric Thames, who was on my Targets list.
Right now, my Targets list consists of these four players:
- Kyle Schwarber, OF/C
- Josh Hader, CP
- Freddie Freeman, 1B/3B
- Joc Pederson, OF/1B
I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone get shwarber. But have definitely seen the other 3. I am pretty certain at least Joc will pop up.
I want to grind on MTO while offline, and am wondering can I still earn progress for team affinity points if I play the mode without a connection.
Can I play offline and then just reconnect once I finish it and claim my rewards on DD. Is this possible?
You should. Then when you login you will get the affinity. But, people have had issues with this mode. I haven’t seen issues with what exactly you are saying though.
Out of curiosity, why aren’t you always logged in?
Completed my first MTO run this year with Nationals on Legend in one day to earn plenty of Affinity for FOTF Juan Soto.
First time playing this mode, as I didn't give it a try last game. It felt like a proper amount of challenge with one great reward (Diamond Card) for finishing.
Give it a try if you're looking to alternate between Showdown, or maybe even to inspire a Franchise.
It was fun enough for me to think of doing another with the Athletics so I could earn FOTF Matt Olson, and to just enjoy the game.
I will post more information as I learn more about the mode.
That’s pretty awesome. I don’t know if I could do it on legend. I’m doing my sixth one and have yet to finish one even on HOF.
How many affinity did you get? If you do another, you might want to stop before you win the World Series and save those affinity for when we can go past 70.
