I expect some big legends next year. I expect Roberto Clemente probably complete live series collection. Randy Johnson, Jeter, Koufax, Ichiro will be back. and many many more. Gotta cash grab all the new xbox, switch players before they see how bad packs are.
#1 packs aren't that bad really. In comparison to other games or even real packs of baseball cards. They state the odds, it's up to you to understand how odds work.
#2 Once again, people really seem to be hyping themselves up to unrealistic expectations for next years game. If anything the first year on next gen consoles usually lose features in the transition. I wouldn't expect them to throw the kitchen sink at it just because its on other platforms. If anything I'd exprct them to bank on sales just because those platforms haven't had a baseball game in years.
Not super disagreeing, but the packs are semi-misleading. As somebody who was a big card collector those odds are pretty accurate since only so many get made. When you see 1:36 and you buy a booster box you will get 1-2 of them. The 1:50 is every time you crack a pack to my understanding, there is no in game checker that you've gone 70+ packs without one. Every crack rolls the dice and you need it to come up 50. I had some pretty amazing pack luck early in the season, but just cracked like 30-40 BIAH packs (1 Diamond Greinke (Whoopie)), and around 80+ Standard/Team Affinity packs and haven't pulled anything.
Also headliner packs need to be weighed more towards the headliner then a diamond. I've pulled more live series trash diamonds from headliners then the actual headliner card. Have had the Dibble pack as a reward twice with a diamond in it and my excitement level is through the roof, and then some trash 5k quick sell diamond get pulled.
Edit- I think you're right on with the second thought though. There is no way we don't lose features (PLEASE LOSE MOMENTS WE HATE THEM). They are going to have to deal with systems they aren't used to and we the buyer will suffer in the process.
