Grinding is the way forward

Well, this is the first DD ive played for about 4/5 years (mainly stuck to RTTS) and im really enjoying the stuff they've added.

for example, for all the 6 team affinities, ive created a squad just from those teams and my CAP to basically run up the numbers in the appearances and complete the 42 sets.

its so much fun doing it this way, AL West is pretty awful for catchers and RP so you actually unearth some gems that blow away a 95 card with a strike out.

also helps you play with lots of different cards and not stick to your main so you can find some players who work for you.

anyway, not much to say other than a ramble. im terrible at the game about 20-30 so far, my PCI keeps dropping, but im working on it! 🙂

peace out

Do you actually get additional credit for multiple players from the same division? I guess the way it was worded I was thinking whether it was one or nine, I was just getting one inning credit.

yeah so i play 8 players from the same division and my CAP.

So every 4 games of ranked i get 14 affinity points.

I think if i went all 9 and took out the CAP it would be 14 points every 3 games

EDIT: No you dont get a bonus, you just get to complete the section quicker.

SDS

Thanks...and I worded that poorly. Wasn't meaning "additional credit" like a bonus...was just asking about what you said of being able to get it done quicker. I am definitely going to test out this method today.

Check out the Silver Mike Zunino that was a BR Program Reward if you haven't already. Kinda salty for a silver, but a good card.

This is what I do to a T. I load up with cards from that division and run conquests and every time I unlock a new Flashback or legend or 42 card from that division he’s added to the squad.

Gold Wilson Ramos from Washington and his 2 speed is killing me

Nice. Do you know if there is an easy way to filter players by division?

SDS

The only thing I don't like about the 42 series team affinity cards is that there's not much position variety. Seems like 90% of them are pitchers and outfielders.

Not Really, but the teams go in order based on division when you sort by team. AL East, AL Central, AL West, NL East, NL Central, NL West

Look at it this way. Get him to PxP 2 and he'll be twice as fast as when you first started using him.

Lol I’ve only done this for a couple of divisions but a few of the 42 series players kill me to play with... for some reason I couldn’t get a hit to save my life with Santander... usually switch hitters are money for me even if the stats are [censored] but that dude... [censored]

Wow really. His card is butter for me. I started 8/8 with 3HR with him

SDS

I'm going to do this. I gotta get out of the mindset of using the best cards. I don't want to play SD (tired of that crapola). I finished the AL West a few weeks back via SD and I have most of the other divisions 25% of the way. I like playing conquest and PvCPU, so I should get through it quick!

Franmil Reyes for me. Can't hit a lick with him.
