Like the title says. Brandon Phillips with homerun requirements. Note to SDS: THESE. ARE. NOT. FUN. All they are is frustrating.

I got em all done in under an hour. Not difficult.

You’re our hero.

Just to prove it wasn’t a total fluke, can you try it again and see if you also get it done in like 50 minutes? Should be no problem for a stud like you.

That might be tough.

-Your hero.

To be fair, I also aced a few challenges on the first attempt that drove some others crazy in the past few years. Two XBH with weak-hitting JP Crawford in one game, or four hits, a run, 2 RBI In a game with Neil Walker... but I never said it wasn’t tough. I just knew I had some luck.

Of course there are some tough moments... There are at least five threads here complaining about this one though. Seems like people don't want challenges, and then they blame SDS. Crazy.

The problem is that any player with a sub 80 power rating is almost immediately useless. The way the game is set up power is the only thing that matters. Contact helps, but with no power you're just at too much of a disadvantage

While this might be true in H2H games, does it really have anything to do with the Phillips program?

Are you joking? Half of them require homeruns and the other half require XBH. Without any power you're completely reliant on luck to pass them.

I haven't found that therefore, no I was not Kidding.

I kind of like that they made these moments harder. Plus people are going to need this Phillips for the awards collection.

I think they're starting to make moments more "challenging" because the OVR ratings of the cards are getting higher than they were earlier in the year. But still... if they're gonna base his attributes on a season where he had moderate totals in HR's and SB's, then at least set up moments to match his skills.

Edit: I haven't been home yet do do the moments, but I'm looking forward to the challenge 😉

SDS is training us for moments extreme, in a few months these moments will look like cake.

I don’t think it will be moments extreme moments where Introduced last year. This year I think they will do showdown extreme.

Well the problem is most cards sit in that mid power where its not enough to do anything but enough to pop out or something. That 93 Gwenn has like 30 power and is a hitting machine. 98 Wade Boggs is the same way. its the 50-70 power guys that just suck hitting with.
