    You are correct. Thought you had to beat every team on AS or something to get him.

    Can't imagine they are a collection bc that was Ohtani. Guess we'll see. He needs be be 125/125 left and right with 90 speed and fielding.

    Yeah but most of them were 3 inning games. Became more palatable when I looked at it as the same number of games as the big conquest map without all the simming bs. But yeah, still wouldn't be thrilled about the same type of thing.

    I wouldn't think it'd be a major collection like Ohtani but a program path where collecting all star series cards (the legend ones) would get you progress in the program similar to how they do POTM or something like that. Combo of missions/moments/collecting.

    But I have no clue what it'll be so I'm just throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks lol

    I remember I did not complete it because nothing counted towards TA. If it would have I would have completed it.

    Oh yeah that's right. And if they do something similar, moments don't count towards parallel progress either. F that.

    Mother fucker. That's my third Castellanos homer that someone bailed on. He was my first Central pick.

    Ruth was the first program I completed bc I'm a Yankee homer. It wasn't that bad iirc.

    Should I buy the HRD cards I need for Sho now then? I guess I don’t know how quick they’d go back down if they spike after the packs expire.

    Are there any cards that are extreme pull but also good at bunting? I would like to beat the shift against the CPU

    The Mullins ASG has been able to bunt against the shift for me a few times in showdown, when I’m desperate for a base runner.

    Depends on a few things. My thinking is these will be like the 42 packs. Initially they'll go up in price but also in 4-6 weeks they'll probably be throwing them into inning programs and stuff and they'll come back down in price. So the next hour or so is the cheapest they'll be until whenever we see them bring the packs back.

    So if you don't mind waiting, the high tier guys will drop eventually.

    I went ahead and bought them all except the top 2 ASG guys just because I had the stubs. I also stocked up BIG on the base round guys hoping they go up throughout this weekend. if I hadn't invested I could just buy the last card I need for Sho but I'm a fiend for working the market and investing.

    Also it's entirely possible they drop HRD and/or ASG pack(s) in today's new program and they don't go up at all and maybe even crash a bit but given that it leads to such a good card, I wouldn't count on this.

    99 Acuna... 1 HRD pack and 1 ASG pack in the program so those are crashing. If you have stubs, now's a good time to buy cheap

    Meh. He's not sellable and not way better than the other AS cards. Doubt I put the time into 10 moments 8 missions. 25 hits, 60 bases, 15 xbh, 30 k's.... na pass on that.

    that player program is pretty easy actually and that card is MF sexy.
    moments are actually pretty fun and easy as hell. missions could be done in 1-2 rookie oriole shippet games.
    got about 5 showdowns to get the TA3 finished and he's mine. saves me buying one extra card for ohtani too

    if you put him in right that defense + speed is a lot better than most of the TA3 with good hitting. Parallel 5 that card and it's an end game card for me for sure
    Might do a platoon in LF with Judge and Justice.

    There's like 5 end game OF already and we still have 99 Babe, Mays, Hank, and Griffey coming.

    who are the 5 already out IYO?
    Trout is the only one I'm set at. Buxton, soriano, finley, and all the TA3 cards could get replaced by a clone of Acuna/Trout.
    Griffey would be a nice 3rd to finish my ideal OF off

    It's really personal preference. I personally don't care about defense as much in LF and RF. It's a nice luxury but bat is way more important to me bc most hits end up leaving the yard anyways. A good CF can run down balls in the gap for me.

    Trout
    Judge
    Turner
    Castellanos
    Garcia

    I like all those guys about equally. I love Soto's swing too so he'll get some run for me. Acuna is really good but for me personally not on a different level from those guys.

    Got Acuña finished in a couple hours. About 45 minutes for the moments and another 45 vs CPU in shippet for a game and a half. Also was the last card I needed for Shohei.

    Now I won’t be able to play the game until probably Saturday or Sunday but at least that’s knocked out so when I get back I can jump right into playing online

    This was regular Acunas career for me. Extra juiced stats on the 99 car vs RHP should be real nice.

    1st event game with 99 Ronald went 3/3 with a walk off. Love

    I'd be livid. SS just does field a ball, very late swing drops, 3b won't throw home, them no pci rbi hit for pitcher. Yikes. I didn't even mean to send runner home on the one to RF. Runner just did his own thing and it worked.

    It's weird how card performance varies so much from user to user. I'm absolute ass with Trout. Like .690 OPS while .950 with Ortiz.

    Hahahahhahaha factual

    But like I said yesterday, defense isn't a huge deal to me. Infield animations for diamond defenders are huge for infielders bc they get rid of it quick. But there's only a few hard hit fly balls a game that don't leave the yard so having a fast CF is enough for me to cover the gaps. If you hit one down the line in LF, we'll you get a hit. I view defense as a luxury but default bat first 100% of the time.

    Did you guys ever start a new custom league? It’s cross platform correct?
    If so I’d like to get in if spots are available. I can play pretty regularly in the evenings and anytime on weekends.

    I've noticed Judge not making it to some gappers or shots down the line that Trout would have gotten back when my OF was trout/bux/acuna in a little 10 game event run I did last night
    Only matters when you play at places not named Shippett though
