    Really? Seemed like it would take an hour just to get to the other side of the map.

    You start with 8 fans on each side. Can knock out two bases in the first turn, two more in the second or third.

    Do you just beat the “strong holds” then take over the rest of the map or what?

    Yeah, I know there are a couple different strategies but I’ve found the quickest (for me) is to not fuck around and hit the strongholds asap.

    When does TA stage 3 start and when does the new event start where I can use right handed batters?

    After you beat those, is it just the process of "attacking" the empty cells/simming vs the ones that are already taken?

    After one game I’m still on the fence. I got the loss but I was playing a guy with a championship series banner (so he’s made it to 800+ at some point). Greinke only gave up 4 runs in 7 or 8 IP I think but just never really felt like I could get through an easy inning or had a clear go to pitch to get outs. Not sure how much of that is on Greinke and how much was my opponent.

    I can’t find a 4th or 5th sp for the life of me. Hal, Kluber, and Oswalt (a few innings away from prestige 95) are pretty solid imo. But anyone else I’ve run out there gets rocked- even Felix has like a 10+ ERA after a couple games.

    sorry, misread. RHBs has been going on since Tuesday, and on Tuesday it changes to free for all.

    Laughed out loud at that.

    The other day I hit one in the gap so just held L1 to advance all, when I let go the lead runner was 3/4 the way home so I let go...he goes back to 3rd...but the guy behind him also kept running to third. Almost lost it. Last time I do “advance all”.

    The Fathers Day conquest and now the 5th inning one whenever I go to play the NYY strong hold it freezes. Guess I’m not beating this thing until I figure out wtf is going on with my game. Makes no sense.

    Loaded into a ranked game and matched up against Greinke. First pitch Ellsbury took him deep on a perfect-perfect hit and the guy quit. Next game against a guy that was prestige level 30something with 3 prestige diamonds plus the 99 ovr Jose Ramirez on his team. I put up 3 or 4 runs and held him hit-less and he quit after 4 innings. Not a bad way to rank up to the next tier after losing my last couple of games yesterday.

    I think/hope deleting the game and re downloading it solved my freezing issue. Got about 50% done with the conquest for 5th inning so hope to finish that tomorrow. Will be at about 150/300 program points once I get that. Then can hopefully knock out the online stuff later this week.

    Have my first non-weekend day off of 2020 coming Thursday and Friday, so might be some grind sessions ahead.

    Wait so I did all of that TA stage 1 and 2 bullshit when I could have just bought the card? Fuckers.

    But Mattingly can be upgraded to a 99? Let's goooooooooooooooooooooo!

    Why was the fifth inning showdown so difficult? I've beaten all the other innings in 1 attempt and this thing took me 10 tries before I finally beat it today.

    I beat it first try but it was because I went into the final showdown down 15-14 which I’ve never done. It seemed like the mini challenge things were way easier for me than normal, but holy crap it was a grind to scratch out two runs against Mo in the final showdown.

    I’ve attempted Mo like 4-5 times now. I’m garbage but the thing for me with him is I can’t hit any homers. I’ve had at least 5 perfects die at the track. Also Rickey, Mick and Reg can get to damn near anything. Turns doubles into singles and outside a real fluke there’s no way in hell youre hitting a triple against any of them.

    That was my issue too. I went in most times 6+ runs with 3 times of having double digit and still was not able to scrape out the runs needed to win. Everything off him seemed to be weak contact or when I made solid contact it went straight to guys.

    Yep I’d think it was a gap shot and it’d just float weakly to the outfielders glove. Not excited to face Mo online.

    Damn most of these Stage 3 TA cards are already on the market. Around 50-60K on average.

    Some of them are even mid 20K.

    Sucks the two guys I’d want for personal nostalgia reasons are Thome and Buhner. 1B seems pretty stacked and my current outfield isn’t bad. Still might throw Jay out there though.

    I wish they would incorporate a lot more missions and moments for the TA mode. One moment is dumb, if someone wants to grind out 10 moments for a stage, why not? Also same with missions. Honestly I'd much rather accumulate 35 hits with a SS, 50 Ribs with a catcher and 20 SBs with a platoon OFer online than any of the other stuff in there. I have zero of them complete and I only have like 5 FOF players and I got them through a very few exchanges and mostly inning grinds.

    Such is life, but I will say that if these guys are on the market now it only promotes more shit housery with buyers and sellers. That plus I'd venture to guess every other update will have to be the same. They are not really promoting any incentive to complete the TA.

    Now that said, I'm a newb so their could be some piece I am missing on some reward I am unaware of.

    Finally, and I promise I will STFU up after. Pretty much I will need two things for Ranked Season wins at this point. Someone who doesnt have the time and needs to quit or the early runs to get up on some loser who can't take an L. I might suck but I do take my ass whoopins and replay other homers I admire. Now people can just easily run 5 SP deep out 100 plus velo with the ability to go 130 pitches plus, and I stand no chance at catching up to that shit what so ever. As good as my eye is I can run the PC up, just cannot turn on FB quick enough.

    Reading Reddit I guess a bunch of people bought gold and silvers thinking the price would inflate with people buying them to exchange for the TA3s. Now they’re tanking because you can just buy the cards lol

    I think this is why I’ve opted to just do the inning bosses then sprinkle in cards I get from the moments within those or XP rewards. Plus a couple discount ballers I’ve had luck with to round out my team.

    I did enjoy the market and hustle of the collection but otherwise I am daily mission and done type now. I try to get all my monthly shit and player unlock done without completing them as well so I play a good amount of online where possible. I do enjoy that because you see how you hit with certain guys.

    Yeah I am thinking after I unlock Walker, I might be set for awhile and will be more picky with when I do the card grinds rather than just playing exclusively online.

    Although I guess you can still probably get the 300 points by doing Conquest + Showdown then the online/daily missions.

    The market crashed so I said screw it and bought all the high diamonds I needed to get Mantle. In the process I unlocked 14 team affinity packs and pulled another Verlander that I had just locked in, Flaherty, and a diamond bat grip that sells for 7k. Sold them for 110k and got close to another 50k back for locking in collections. About to jump in the event and try to hit some dingers.

    Also Smoltz looks like the best SP of the new team affinity cards. Definitely going to give him a shot at some point.
