Food for thought on Parallels

SDS

Maybe it’s just me, but I would like to see a cap on the number you see on the Parallels Cards to like 1000 or 10,000. Like it’s ok if 10k players were the first to get the card paralleled at a certain stage, but it slightly bothers me to see a card be 101k/132k as an example. At that point just leave it at the colors. Hopefully someone agrees. Letting the Number be a reward for the grind is more meaningful in my opinion.

SDS

I kind of like how it is. It humbles me and makes me realize how bad I am at accumulating stats.

SDS

Perfect the way it is. Can’t punish someone for going NMS and getting the cards later in the game cycle. THAT guy worked ten times harder than the guy who grinded the whole year. Would be extremely shady to punish him by not having the ability to prestige his at his own pace

SDS

If you put in the time to grind that card, you deserve to have whatever reward you get for it. Should not be any cap on it, I like it the way it is now. I hope they do this each year. Big win on stats being online and offline too

SDS

I'm curious why it bothers you so much

SDS

Maybe I’m being misunderstood, when I mean capping, I’m not saying everyone doesn’t get the parallels. I mean the numbers beside it, after 10k it should just be generic green, orange, etc.

This. Bigger issues I’m guessing

SDS

You aren't being misunderstood. Again why does it bother you so much? I just hit P2 with POTM Burnes today and laughed seeing 100k/101k. It's a number. It's easily ignored.

I love when people want to take things from others... I dont play online and when I do I do so so sparingly and dont succeed doesnt matter who I have

Idk why the bottom right numbers bother me after 10k lol. I really do like Parallels, way more than Prestige last year.

Prestige was horrendous; having to play with specific cards and targets that only no lifers (anyone unmarried under 25, pardon the envy) could reach

SDS

Clearly I’m the only feeling this way lol.

I'm just glad SDS listened from last year and gave offline players like myself something to grind for.

I just wish the level of parallel changed the color of the background diamonds on ls cards. Like how prestiged cards last year turned red. This year it’s just kinda a bleh refractor. I’d like to see the card decked in that tier 5 refractor

Your idea is great! I always thought about diamonds should be the color of the team too. Like As Chapman being Green diamonds, or Red Sox’s being Red diamond backgrounds.

Haven't really thought about it until now, but yea, those numbers are meaningless. There are only two numbers that matter; parallel 5 and being the first to achieve it. Being the first is an achievement; everything after that isn't. The only thing that really should matter to someone is that they got parallel 5.

Excuse me but please don't tell me what should and should not matter to ME. Just because I'm not the first for something doesn't mean it's meaningless. If that's the way you look at it, fine. I do not look at it that way.

For instance I'm pretty proud that out of the 100k+ users playing MLB I'm the 157th person to hit P5 with Fernando Valenzuela.

SDS

Pass. It’s a boost to the cards.

SDS

The only number I care about is I, II, III, IV & V, not X out of X.

But they still give online way more mission XP chances than offline.
