    I actually like this years gameplay over last years but I think the programs are infinitely worse. They could still do stuff like the TA programs and just make them more equal than last year when you had 5-6 TA cards each tier of the program that we’re head and shoulders better than the rest.

    the only program change I actually like is the XP goal for BR instead of a set amount of hits/XBH/HRs.

    The Ranked Innings thing absolutely did not do what they hoped it would and killed that game mode. I’d rather play COOP that has zero rewards than Ranked. Odds are my opponent is quitting before the end of the game at least I can enjoy the game with friends before that happens

    got back from being out of town for 5 days looking forward to a new inning. had no idea the halladay thing was a primary program and not some player evolution type deal. this is weird and sucks tbh

    OK so I'm looking for advice from you OG's. I play casually, to date it's been mostly mini-seasons, moments, and a little conquest. I know buying packs isn't the way to use stubs, so I wasn't sure if there was a smart way to use them on the market?

    My team isn't great, but I wasn't sure if just going and buying a player I want/like is the way to go?

    I still prefer ranked bc I like the longer games and getting to make my own team as opposed to drafting one but the rewards have sucked ass. All of the bosses can be bought for cheap. I think Roy is already under 30k.

    New event is weird. Any SP, and bats, but silver or lower RP/CP. Team has to be 90 or lower. Only 10 wins get Hoffman.

    I have all the covers. Bought all but Delgado Takashi, cheaper milestone, sig and awards. 21 FOTF, still some cheaper ones I can knock off as well, but I cannot imagine they would require all of them. From there it's bullshit BR golds that I don't have that are running a couple grand a pop. I figure if I have a 100K in the bank, some investments I have made and it should be pretty quick.

    Also, got to 5 wins on Events with Randy. I used him only in two events and already have him at IV. Most people you don't even need to aim and as soon as they catch on, throw them something off speed and you are good.

    I don't mind that it forces action but yea there's times it's incredibly unfair. I had a bases loaded spot and came up 0-2. Later he had 2 on and it was 3-0. I mean come on.

    Ive seen a few people online say the Roy card is pretty meh which I guess I somewhat expected due to the pitch mix and lack of velocity. Figured that’s why he’s already < 30K

    I had a dupe at 20k :tebow:

    But I’ve completed all but Angels and got down super low a few times so needed the coins at the time. I bought Vlad Jr recently since he dropped in case he went back up. Oops.

    Ok 12th overall for April lol. Gausman and Rodon were the pitchers higher than him.

    8 innings, 4 hits, 1 run seems like a low bar for a lightning card. I guess it was the 14 k's.

    With them just releasing that 95 Mookie would they do another right away?

    Oh forgot about that one. Na probably not. Doubt they do another 1b, so Goldschmidt is unlikely. Judge is already a 94 so doubt it's him. Maybe Devers? Would prefer Machado honestly and he deserves it for April and May tbh.

    Either would be dope

    I seem to be on a never ending search for a 3B that I like

    Trying Ramirez right now and I like him so far. Was using France at 3rd but he’s so damn slow

    Na no way. He's 29th in war for pitcher in May. Probably Wheeler if he has another good start if they want a pitcher.

    FIFA does a Future Stars promo and they had guys better than Team of the Year cards. If you make TOTY, that should be the best card period

    The best cards in the game will be TOTS-like cards (Finest series), postseason cards, and the 99 versions of the legends they’ve been releasing along the way
