Parallel Cards Make No Sense

SDS

This is my first year playing, I saw a YouTube video that said the best way for beginners to get cards is team affinity and then paralleling the cards to make the stats better. So I spent the past couple days playing showdown because I wanted to get Jim Thome to parallel 5 before playing any other game modes.
I beat the whole team affinity and got him to parallel 5 but for some reason none of the boosts are showing up and his stats are the same and it doesn’t have the shiny card art like the video said it would. This doesn’t make any sense. I remember getting all 5 parallels of him from the team affinity so why is it doing this???

Is this a troll post?

SDS

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news but Showdown doesn’t count for parallel stats. Only ranked, Events, BR, conquest and play vs CPU.

Edit: lol!! Didn’t even see the pic posted, oh no...

SDS

Bruh you got 5 thomes. Yikes.

I legit LOL'd

SDS

My man I hope it’s a joke but you only needed one Thome, paralleling is from playing with that player, not earning multiples of that player.

Welcome to the show though 😕

SDS

Some days, intermixed with all the BS infighting, there is some fantastic comedy on this forum. This post is one of them

SDS

I hope this one gets chalked up to a lesson learned. Yikes!

SDS

Alright man I’m gonna break it down for you. If I’m getting leveled then I am but man I feel bad seeing that if it’s true. Go to your card and hit Triangle. On there you will see “parallels” tab. Scroll to it and you can see these things called pxp and each amount of points you need to get to each level. You can also see in the boxes which stats do what for points. All cards have this and each level give you +1 to all attributes.

You also need to contact SDS and have them trade 4 of those thomes for all the other AL central TA2s because they do nothing for you, you can’t do anything with them and you cannot get the other cards now.

Most troll posts have no value and lack any wit whatsoever. Yours however, has me chuckling. Love it.

SDS

The lol I needed today

SDS

Buzz’s girlfriend wolf! Bro you have 5 Thome cards not a Thome card to parallel 5. Also showdowns and moments don’t count toward parallels

SDS

You parallel players by playing games with them. You only need 1 of the card though, not 5 of the same card

SDS

This is the best thing I've seen on here all year.

SDS

Sorry this happened to you, OP. But on behalf of the entire TSN community, thanks for this! Hope SDS can help you out.

SDS

Wow. Just wow. That’s all I got. I haven’t been this speechless in a very long time.

SDS

I'm 💀💀💀
Not picking on you lol. I hope you get it taken care of but this was pure gold...

SDS

Wow that’s something ya don’t see everyday.

SDS

Omg that sucks so bad lol

SDS

How does this even happen lol, wow. I actually feel bad for you.
