    I hate this fucking game lol. Down 3 in Showdown with 3 outs left. Devers at the plate. Need a bomb to win it. This motherfucker hits a rocket to 3b, 3b tags running coming from 2b, go to 2b, then to 1b, for a triple play to end it. Wasn't even close at 1b either. That's how I lose my 2nd showdown this year.

    They were down last night, not sure how long. Came back up like 10 minutes after I got on. Good this morning.

    I just can’t beat the Padres on all star. Got no hit in my third attempt. Just an absolute joke

    Just work on moments and showdowns. Practice getting as many looks as you can and recognizing gifts.

    I get on for the first time this weekend, going to play SD to get the Huston Street exchange. Got done, servers crashed. Also had a daily mission innings get completed. Assume none of it will count. Fuck this game.

    Anyone having a problem with the quick sell/sell now buttons? It pretty much forces you to do the lower option, wasn’t like this before the patch

    Anyone else having issues with Sell Now while opening packs? It's defaulting to the Quick Sell price

    I don't sell out of packs. Also you would want the quick sell over the sell now because it won't take out 10%.

    Not when there's more than a 10% disparity though, right? Also, I may need an actual lesson on how to sell my shit, then.

    It takes a tad longer but go into the actual market pull up the card and sell it for a stub lower than the “buy now” price

    So I'm staring at this Diamond catchers mit with Sell Now at 12k, the Quick Sell is at 1k. I click on Sell Now and literally nothing happens.

    Leave the packs go in terms of selling out of them. You'll almost always lose money doing it that way.

    I could be off base because I’m still learning but that could be a sell now price based on other sell orders in the market and there aren’t any buy orders currently to fill the sell now. It seems like there’s always a sell now price for equipment but a lot of them don’t have buyers. You’d have to create a sell order thru the marketplace and wait on buyers to show up

    I sell out of packs when I get a card that I already have that has a sell now value of like $1-2K.

    Low golds generally are alright to do that but in a lot of cases you’re still losing stubs. But for some it’s not worth the time so whatever floats your boat.

    So I just got home from a week in the U.S. Virgin Islands, knocked out the first inning showdown and logged onto my computer to trade some as I bought a bunch of Buxton earlier this month. I can't find anywhere on the online market to see how many stubs I have. Am I just missing something or did they remove that completely.

    I don’t think I’ve been more frustrated with a game not counting progress than this year’s show. It’s so hit or miss and quite enraging when it happens

    In the past it has said something like No Orders Available, now it just says nothing. No pop up or anything.

    Man I'm trying to do the showdowns for TA but holy fuck it takes forever. I've finished the AL East and I'm at 60% on the AL Central. All of the others are at like 20% based on having completed the live series. 1 showdown is 10% so I still have like 35 of those fuckers to do to get Jackie. Is there something else to do to make it take less than like 16 hours?

    Yeah, you’re favorite, conquest! Keep in mind you can knock out the missions while you complete, stack your team with nothing but the division players so you get the innings kickers as well. I have al west done, working on NL west now. Others are pretty similar to what you said based on collections. I still have 5-6 teams that I need to complete though.

    How much are the conquests worth? Might look at missions.

    But overall getting 15 TA points in 25 minutes or so it's bad. Problem is you have to get fucking 900 total to finish it.

    As far as TA goes, I've set my eyes on getting the 42 series Sixto. His repertoire and speed is fucking batty.

    Sixto is a stud, would pitch him more but I’m 100% in TA for NL East so I’m using other players

    Only 15, but the missions are worth four each as well. You could easily get 20 points out of it with the players you acquire through the progress. I've completed the West, but I am going to wait until I have stacked up enough players to finish missions through Central and East.

    After that I'll have one going through the nation map to get some more prospects.

    Honestly I guess I have been insanely lucky. Yeah I got dumped out post game but at no point have I been disco'd mid game or have something not count towards my totals.

    It’s hit or miss, but I would say over 20-25 games where mission goals, innings by division, nothing gets tracked. Then some games you back out after a win, get disconnected, and have to re-play it for the win.

    I don’t wanna spend $70 on something that I can’t even play during the evenings, too late now though lol

    Ive had a similar experience. I mean even the games I’ve lost vs CPU it sucks because I lose out on the XP, or the missions where I need inning with a team or TBs with a certain guy.

    It gets super frustrating when I have let’s say 3-4 hours a day to play and the game straight up doesn’t work...or when it does my progress doesn’t save. Honestly the biggest reason I haven’t completely given up is the fact I paid for it will make me keep trying so I don’t feel like it’s a complete waste.

    He's real tough to hit if you can hit your spots. His just early/late releases are brutal sometimes though. I've got 8BB with him thru 27IP. Also apparently he gets more run support than any other SPs for me with a 3-1 record and 4.28era 1.32whip. by far the worst for me in those

    I'm a bitch boy who doesn't use advanced pitching controls. Can't remember the setting, I just choose the pitch, choose the place, press A/X.

    Glavine is insanely fun to pitch with. Through 6 games he's 47ip 5-1 2.30e/0.64w and 59Ks. Haven't had to face him yet as an opposing pitcher but not looking forward to that after using him. Sneaking in 4-seamers on 2 strike counts after throwing nothing but slow cheese has got to be frustrating

    New daily moment program. Seemed like they had a few days in there to help buffer if you missed a day on the last go round.

    How do you navigate to the daily moments program? Is it obvious and I'm oblivious? I think that answers the question of how I'm getting random packs after completing moments that I couldn't explain.
