    I have the Red ones but have been looking for something like that purple thing. I might have to check those out.

    I bought the pack that comes with 3 different colors. One is soft, one medium, one hard. Started with purple (medium) and like it so far.

    Nice, I’ll be ordering soon. I got the infernos last year, but not sure if I like them because it seems to make the stick move even faster and out of control rather than more precise. The little ring thing could be clutch though.

    Of course it works after I turned it on, saw servers were down, and went back upstairs and got into bed.

    I’m sure if I get up and go back down they’ll crash again too.

    Just had a great game at lunch. We go to extras tied 6-6 and he drives in two in the 12th and then I walk it off with two out in the bottom of the 12th with a 3 run shot from the Babe.

    I'm at 620k towards the first inning program. That diamond is so close. Has anyone finished? If so, what card choices did you get? I'm seeing mostly 85-89 players on Reddit.

    I ended up with Soto. Already had him, so I sold him to knock out some collections. About 7 teams left to complete

    With y'all finishing so many teams collections already, are you spending money on stubs? Or getting lucky in packs and then investing it into other cards?

    I played a lot during the release and would constantly collect and then sell the extras. For example I’ve completed the nations conquest 4 times already. I’m burnt out to say the least

    Oh damn. I'm in the midst of doing that for the first time. It is such a grind but I'm enjoying it as well. I'm at 18/30 I think and hoping to finish it tonight/tomorrow.

    If this god dang game would work during the times I wanted to play I could probably at least have the boss unlocked and sold by now.

    I’m sitting on like 110K stubs right now which isn’t bad considering I have barely been able to play. Ready to buy some cards and start playing online.

    I am in the market, buy/sell constantly. Once I completed the inning I just committed to Events. At this point I think I am going for the packs now in Events. 5 at 50 and 10 at 60.

    Pulled Realmuto today which was nice and finished up the Phils for me.

    All I can say regarding margin flipping is that this showzone.io page is better than anything I was trying to come up with on google sheets. Click through high profit per minute players and check if any of those reported Sell/Buy Orders are “soft” aka a few orders and then a drop off to the next wall.

    Oh yeah, I opened the Roster Updates page on the top nav of theshow site and scrolled down to the new players. I don’t care about finishing most collections in the short term so I checked all of those new cards and sold three or four of them that I had pulled from packs without realizing for between 700 and 1,000 stubs. They’ll be worth next to nothing in a month.

    had the no hitter broken up in the 9th on a bullshit grounder.

    My problem has been the times I've been able to play, I couldn't decide what mode to play the most. I've done a little of everything but wish I had focused more on events or BR for either one of those programs.

    Looking to complete the Cardinals collection now that Arenado is dropping in price but their new common guy has 220+ orders for 1,000 stubs. After this weekend I'm sure he's way down but that's crazy to me lol

    Found that I can make quicker program progress playing March to October than anything. Think I may just keep rolling through that for some TA and whatnot. Got way more XP from that in the same time it took to beat Conquest

    Apparently there is an exploit in ranked. Never knew until today and may be more impactful the higher the rank. Anyone run into this?

    Also is there any motivation to play ranked? Do you win anything, like last year pennant earned you a diamond player?

    40 wins and you get to select a player from the trio of cards that getting a 900ranking would

    so if you got a 900 ranking and 40 wins you would get 2 of the 3.

    I will never get a 900 ranking.

    I just got in The Hebrew Husker. Also this is the first time I actually went into BR. Pretty cool how they did that, take a look if you havent already. Get missions and then points. Not sure I would have fared well in that, but ultimately nabs you some Ballin packs, a diamond and 93 Clemente.

    Reached 650K and my choices were Lindor, Yates, Nola, and Nick Anderson. Took Anderson because he was selling for the most and I essentially traded him for Harper.

    needed a lefty bat so happy with how that turned out

    The pure randomness in this game is infuriating.

    800 foot HR on a pitch a foot out of the zone and barely in the PCI

    Out PS_App_20210505_021958.jpeg

    Out but ok with this one
    PS_App_20210505_022001.jpeg

    In the fucking yellow and was a tank. This should never ever ever happen. Completely fooled on the pitch and bailed out by the game. Bloop hit? OK, that happens. But a bomb should never happen when you're that early.

    Why? 1 and 4 are his. 2 and 3 are mine. Don't get me wrong, I get fluke shit too. It just sucks when games are decided by it. And flukes should be bloop hits and soft ground balls that find a hole. That's realistic. 450 foot rockets don't happen when guys are fooled and way out front.
