Lots of new guys coming today
tbh none of those new bosses really move the needle for me. some of them may be good cards though, just very meh on who the actual players are.
I really liked Breakout Roberts early on and as a Reds fan, excited for Joey but for the most part, same.
Though I felt the same way about a lot of the All Star cards and the 96 Takashis
Cruz is the big one for me. If they juice him like they could it would be an endgame card. He is one of the 10 fastest guys in baseball, he had the hardest recorded throw by an infielder this season, and he hits 400+ foot tanks as a short stop.
His flaw is that he is 6’7” and will have a huge strike zone
Plus he is only hitting a little over 200, but as a future star card they can take liberties with the contact ratings.
It's freaking August, let's get some 99 Pedro, Hank, Mickey, May's, etc.
The more I think about it, the more dumb this is. It's August and we're getting 99 overall FS cards. Fuck that. The BR rewards should have been a Mickey/Pedro type guy. I'm in no rush to get another Volpe card. Once we hit 99s, it should be bangers, not Ron Santo. That should be a headliners card, not a WS reward. They'll leave Pedro, Mickey, etc until October when they'll be doing Finest and they'll get dropped back to back.
They need to release the meh 99s before they release the end game GOAT 99s. Otherwise these 99s would never crack any lineups.
I can't hit for shit with the taller batters with big strike zones: judge, stanton, frank - just can't do it. very hard to follow the ball with the PCI when the release point is ~midway height of the strike zone
I can hit with Frank and Judge, but not Stanton
Do we really need a 99 Ron Santo and AL Kaline? If you drop the end game 99s along with the finest, most will never see a lineup. This BR program lasts until 9/6 too so there's not much season left after this. At least we get Griffey this week but all the shit today sucks.
I can hit OK with Frank. I would prefer a bronze Alejandro Kirk over any 99 Stanton or Judge. I cant hit anything with them.
Mr Tiger will be in my Tiger themed lineup for sure
O'Neil Cruz and Grayson are dope IMO
Cruz looks solid but I have my cap at SS so it does nothing for me personally. Grayson isn't hitting my rotation either. Give me Pedro, damnit.
At this point, with the dogshit rewards system for ranked, me having a CAP at SS doesn't even factor into the position anymore. I'm not sure they'll put out cards that make me actually want to make a WS rank/inning run for a "Rewind Pack" that skips a season back to completely useless cards or a current WS pack that has run of the mill cards compared to other current reward cards like bosses/events.
Might be the point in the game for me where I just grab a card here and there that looks fun to use in COOP and call it a wrap on this years game with Madden coming out in a few weeks (and the new modern warfare).
Thought this was gonna be a COOP freeze-off. Nope just elite defense and a miraculous triple play. Broke ass game
Same, thinking I might do the same when 2k drops. It was fun but there's nothing to go for right now. All of the rewards are shit. WS has been ass all year.
I also had an event game yesterday where I hit it to RF with swisher and the guy had Acuna pick it up, with momentum carrying him into the RF wall and he did the spin + throw animation. Ball bounces off an invisible wall and bounces back 25 rows into the stands. Screen has the "out of play" banner come up, but it doesn't actually stop play and I got an in the park HR with Swish. For some reason it took a screenshot after the play instead of recording the previous 30 seconds.
Give me 99 Cruz and y’all can have all the rest
Gave up on this game in June. Basically a carbon copy of 21, the program grind is incredibly repetitive and boring, and the hitting was broken af.
Nothing too exciting about this card other than his swing is usually fun to use. Overall pretty meh.
In other news I took some profits from the last flash sale and bought up a ton of the all star cards as they bottomed out last weekend. Sold them all today and have close to 1M stubs now to invest or flip or buy cards I want. Nowhere close to collections still and at this point doesn’t seem worth it.
Man I was excited, that’s underwhelming
Sitting on about 1.5 myself.
I’ve got Cutch but will probably buy up some more to be prepared for whenever the next collection happens.
I was over prepared for Cutch and would be happy to be next time also
Yea that card blows. I get it's free and probably easy to get but that's not making any lineups.
I’ll still give it a shot but that card should be better. It’s a 99 in August, they didn’t have to really kill anything on it, 81 speed is a joke to me
It’s true rating is a 98 on showzone
Where can you see all cards? I assume Cutch is highest so far?
What's the difference in true overall and meta overall?
These two back to back mare me put the game down for 2 days.
I would assume meta takes into their power attribute more. but not sure.
My guess is that it devalues stats like clutch, vision, base running aggressiveness etc.
Give me a Wynton Bernard August monthly moment next week or give me death
Just realized Tatis will drop from the LS collection and that might get me close enough to buy the rest of the gatekeepers I need with stubs
His price has skyrocketed
He’s been removed from packs. Only reason to buy him is if you’re a completionist.
I’ve had him forever. He was my first to prestige V
Do it SDS
One out from a perfect game on only 68 pitches and this clown quits.
had the same thing happen at 7.2 last night and I was only up 1-0
