We're into August now...

SDS

Still waiting for usable cards from some of the best legends and LS players. Yet again here we are with a 21 year old Cristian Pache who hasn't stepped foot in a MLB Ballpark getting a 98 overall card.

I seem to remember a certain Braves CF who was already in the MLB at 19 and winning GG awards by the time he turned 21. You know the same guy who didn't get a card until the end of last year's game cycle.

We need to ramp up the content concerning the players everyone would like to use 🤷🏼♂

SDS

You mean the guy that was a 1st inning boss on Launch Day?

It's all about marketing and keeping people engaged. If you give out everything all at once people will not be engaged as long. Listen I want a number of players right now but at the same time if I get them I am likely to check out sooner because I have nothing left to play for.

SDS has done a great job with releasing players and differnt cards to help line up diversity.

If you have an issue with FS card then you should also have an issue with the HRD cards, Created players and Finest cards cause at the end of they day these are just juiced up cards. It's a fantasy game mode at the end of the day the rules are made up and the points dont matter

Yes, a 91 overall card that was useless in two weeks. Kind of weird way to use a new legend no? It's also the same guy who has a gold card only this year roughly 6 months into the game cycle.

He's one example of many we're still waiting on like Ruth, Mays, Foxx, etc.

The Offical Show Nation Record Keeper has spoken!!!!

August 2018: "You released all the good cards in June and now there's no reason left to play!!"

August 2020: "It's August and you haven't released the best cards yet!"

Pick a lane...

I'm in the lane of why does Cristian Pache have two cards better than Andruw Jones lmao.

Let the kids play!!!

But seriously where the fuzz is Bumgarner (besides cutting into a rattlesnake to save some rabbits)?

Stop making assumptions like you're clever. I didn't ask for a bunch of cards to be dumped into the game. I'm just pointing out there are a lot of desirable players left and it's August. Why would anyone want all those guys to show up at the same time?

SDS

Quit expecting top tier cards in headliner packs. The only headliner so far that is considered end game is Dibble and thats because of lack of relief pitchers. Andruw Jones probably should have gotten his best card by now, maybe even in a headliner. Expecting Babe, Foxx, Ted, Pujols, Griffey, Yelich, Scherzer, Kershaw etc. in headliner packs is asinine though.

SDS

The entire line of Fake Series cards is a great idea in concept. It's the execution that failed.

These guys haven't proven a [censored] thing, but because we're "new and fresh" we have them eclipsing all the LS and legends.

To those that are bored with the same cards, great. Go play franchise mode and ramp up your Pache and Adell there.

I ordered MLB the show, not MiLB. They could have skinned an entire minor league mode where ya'll can play with the minor guys in minor league parks, and earn FS 99 diamonds.

SDS

There were 86 99's released last year.

Launch: 10 (Collects, XP Bosses, XP High Diamonds)
May: 3 (3rd Inning Bosses)
June: 9 (4th Inning, WS, BR, Sig Choice options)
July: 7 (Sig Choice, 5th Inning, Wagner, WS Cobb)
August: 8 (BR, Goldy Headliner, 6th Inning, WS)
September: 9 (HL Posey, 7th inning, HL Parker, WS Chipper, HL Killebrew, Sig Agon/Vlad)
October: 21(!): 8th/9th Inning, Event, Sig Choices, WS Ruth, Finest Elites, Finest Collect)
November: 14 (PS Strasburg, Events, BR Foxx, Sig Choices, 10th Inning Boss/Henchmen, Sig Ichiro)
December-February: 5 (Events, Extreme Gossage)

This year, we're already ahead of last year's pace w/ 42 99s (not counting prestige)
March: 12 (Collects, XP Bosses, Kluber)
April-May: 0
June: 20 (DotP, 5th Inning, Sig Jackie, BR Carter/Mize, HL Scott, 11 Team Affinity)
July: 9 (WS Vlad/Eddie, POTM Paxton, BR Donaldson/Feller, 6th Inning, Trout)
August: WS Ricky/Sale

My guess is that real-life intruded and Stage 2 was actually supposed to be "Hot Start" players or something equivalent.

Did I mention HL packs? Nope, merely pointed out that we're still getting cards like this when there are plenty of cards that are more popular. You guys are latching onto the legends, I specifically mentioned LS cards as well. Why 98 Pache and not an Acuña Jr. flashback?

Acuna has only been in the league 3 years. Players like that don’t tend to get flashback cards. All the future stars hate posts just get old. I don’t care for them myself but it’s a lost cause because every single content drop has been planned since February. The only drops that aren’t planned before the game comes out are POTM, Topps now, Finest, and that seasons postseason cards

Please stop interjecting assumptions that aren't there. I don't hate the FS cards and didn't hate the Prospect cards. FS Dylan Carlson is one of my favorite cards. However the time for those cards should be over, it's just lazy rehashing content for the sake of content.

I agree, but future stars aren’t over with until Franco and Adley are released and I think you know that. All I’m saying is that they aren’t changing their set in stone content schedule because the same 6 people complain about future stars over and over again

That was a great story lmao

SDS

My bigger issue is that there aren’t even remotely usable cards for some legends. Andruw Jones has an 84, Babe Ruth has a 77, Jimmie Foxx has a 70, Lou Gehrig has a 83, Fergie Jenkins has a 83, Tom Seaver has a 84, and so on. Just give them some kind of ~90 overall diamond that could be somewhat usable and it would be more palatable.
