New moments for TA.

SDS

They added three 3pt Moments to each Stage.

Thanks for the whopping 9pts. Didn't expect a ton of progress to be handed out; but for those of us where 12 pts wont even make a dent got screwed over.

Add in that packs are half off and all the people that invested in pkayers for the exchange are about to get screwed.

At least buy us dinner first.

SDS

I was hoping for at least 10 pts.
I guess it's showdown until my eyes bleed for me.

SDS

Is it 3 three point moments per team?

SDS

Why on earth add things for players who want to actually play the game when it can all be designed around the stock market part of the game. That's who this stage was made for, the catchup mechanics are a joke. Stage 1 showdowns are hit or miss at best even after the changes thanks to bad sliders and you get 1 extra ticket? Come on with that [censored], not sure why I should keep playing the game, 99s everywhere, almost all sellable/farmable for players who only play the stock portion of the game.

But hey, you can go online to prestige them...nothing for the many many players begging for an offline stat grind to prestige cards. Please come play our broken online game that majority of the playerbase hates....

SDS

If there are now 4 total 3 point moments per team, I am stoked. That is huge for saving stubs as some of us try to catch up. Plus the free coins and XP for those moments!

SDS

Market just crashed, so you can do exchanges real cheap.

Refresh my memory...
Did Team Affintiy last year have both an inning component but a team stat component as well?
I clearly remember doing a bunch of hitting and pitching stats with one team for 40 pts (20 for each - Hitting /Pitching) and then doing one exchange for the last 10 pts.

This new format shoehorns us into playing their new mode - Showdown.

SDS

doesn't matter. You don't need to do Affinity anymore.

Looks that way

If I can just buy the cards why would I waste my time doing affinity? They've effectively killed the entire thing.

Not really, because there is a TA4.
Even if you buy Henke, you would want TA4 Ernie Whitt (assuming he is not sellable).

If stage 3 is sellable i have no reason to think stage 4 won't also be.

Thanks Ferris.
If someone was going to remember, it was going to be you.
I really enjoyed the Team Stat grind. Hated the Souvenirs.

SDS

Have they said what the collection reward will be? It better be good to lock in all these sellable players.

SDS

Only collection reward they've confirmed thus far is a reward for collecting HRD cards. (Gonna go ahead and guess Griffey since he's the only 3X winner)

Also just spied in on someone's twitch and apparently there's a ballin bundle for collecting all 60 FotF cards. Meh...

@maskedgrappler said in New moments for TA.:

The only way they get added to the market is if people complete affinities and put them on the market, so affinities still need to be done, and will be!

That's beyond weak. The collection reward should be an incentive to get it done, not just a superfluous handout.

Agreed! It would have been a good time for the Babe...
