I see why packs are a joke to Buy

SDS

I bought 200 packs and Not pull any Diamond players in some B.S. it says odds are 1:50
so if i bought 4 50 bundles and and didn't pull any diamonds.
it's kind of funny how all the You tuber and Twitch star pull diamonds all day long in 50 bundle packs when i should at least received 4 diamonds. I mean i been playing this game since 2006 and i love the game. SDS got to figure something out about packs are something spending $200 all stubs and not pull any diamonds it very sad when your odds say 1:50 which mean i should of got 1 diamond per 50 pack.

SDS

U know what odds are?

That is not how odds work. 1 in 50 odds is not a guarantee of a diamond every 50 packs.
Your odds of pulling a diamond in the first pack is 1 in 50
Your odds of pulling a diamond in the second pack is 1 in 50
Your odds of pulling a diamond on the 200th pack is 1 in 50

A few other points.

Anyone here who has played the game for years could have warned you that packs are a waste of stubs/money.

YouTubers can edit their videos to make it seem like they are far luckier than they actually are. YouTubers know that people don't want to watch a video without any diamond pulls.

I've pulled 2 Trouts this year. One of them must have been yours delivered to me on accident.

SDS

They need to do what Hearthstone does and give people bad luck protection, if you don't get a diamond in 50 packs your odds go up. Well they don't need to but I would like it, lol.

SDS

This is why I play no money spent. Ironically I've pulled 9 diamonds from free packs including trout ; )

SDS

Buying packs is a recipe for disappointment... I used to love buying them but I'm now two years clean. SDS gives enough free packs you literally get hundreds of free packs just by playing there is no point to go buy them from the market. Do the smart thing and use stubs to buy diamond players you want. I'm NMS and am 5 teams away from finishing collections and I haven't pulled any diamond higher than 90+ besides Arenado in a BR run.

SDS

Don't know why people think it's so hard to get good pulls. I got 3 Trout's in 5 minutes. Granted.....they were actually fish from the market.

I think a pity system would be cool. Guaranteed Diamond every ______ (80?) packs and whenever you pull a Diamond the pity resets.

I hope they never do this. The reason why mobile games do it is because that’s how they make their money. It’s a free game, yet almost every mobile game out their is pay to win. If people were guaranteed a diamond every 100 packs they open, people would spend tons of money buying packs just to get the to the guaranteed diamond. The system how it is is perfect. There are so many free packs that are given out just by grinding the game. This is why the shows “ultimate team” is the best in any sports game. Sorry the OP doesn’t understand how odds work, but this is the model 2k and EA need to follow

I have not bought any bundles this year except for release night and last night I bought a 50 bundle. I pulled degrom, Betts and nola in that 50 bundle. Its bundles like that that even out bundles like yours. I got lucky, bundles are usually a waste. I used to be addicted to them. I learned my lesson this year but am stubs rich so of course I bought a bundle and it was a huge gain. This is how sds sucks me back into the addiction. Geniuses!

That is the best way I've seen it put.

Yeah that sucks, but you need to read up on how odds work my friend.

SDS

Pack odds are horrendous in this game... save your stubs for collections and buying off of market.

SDS

I buy 20 packs here and there, maybe once a week from stubs I make playing the different DD modes and programs. When all my commons and bronze are completed, I start putting buy orders and buy packs less often. After that I finish the easier/cheaper collections and buy July most diamonds are cheap except the usual 5-6 that are rare.

SDS

I enjoy opening packs but my expectations are zero. I will not buy standard packs with stubs and have gotten to the point now where I won't buy any of the Headliners either.

I'm NMS and have pulled Kershaw, Buehler and DJ Lemahieu from free packs, so it's better than no diamonds at all.

I would get this all the time. I remember back some years, think it was 18, I went 330 packs with no diamonds. Yea, I kept track. This year I have over 500 TA, balling and show packs and have pulled 5 diamonds. Abreu, Seager, Bueler 2 and Bauer. All under 20k. Sad really. First time trying collections so early and already regretting it. Should have kept Brett and Seaver. Only good to get collections done if you can do it early enough to get an advantage. Won't be much of an advantage in several months if I can finish by then. Will need some 12 win BR runs.

SDS

Sometimes you're just unlucky...I have probably open around 300+packs and have pulled 3 diamonds... it will be better if you save your stubs (or buy them) and just buy the diamonds off the market.

SDS

I only buy packs on launch day then never buy another pack the rest of the game's lifecycle.

SDS

I'm up to around 250 free packs this year and I've pulled Rendon, Yelich and Hader. I would say 80% of all cards I pull are commons and bronze. I'm getting kind of friggin sick of it. Rendon & Yelich were within the first day of pre-launch, then hader about 2 weeks ago. No diamond in two weeks. I won't buy packs, EVER. They are a scam. Yet, a guy on my friend list has had 20+ pulls. I logged in two days ago and within the span of a few minutes, he pulled 2 Verlanders, Arenado and Judge. Then yesterday, he pulled 4 more diamonds. I mean, what in the literal F. I have common TY streamer on my friends list and he's always pulling diamonds too. I'm getting so sick of packs this year. I pulled over 50 last year but I can't get crapola this cycle.

I'm a bit OCD and I want to finish collections, but I can never pull good cards. Plus, playing games you get awarded with a whopping 5 stubs or so at the end. Kinda pathetic. They prey on people that have addictions to buy stubs. I spent money last year and regret it since I really never got any value out of it in my RS games. I sucked with Mickey (batted like .220) so all the extra funds put into the game to get him was a complete waste.
