Why do Twitch streamers play offline? How in the heck do so many people have Acuna and Ohtani?

SDS

Played Weens and BMac yesterday. BMac was streaming but Weens who is number one was offline when I played him.

What is the purpose of the guy not streaming? It’s kind of fishy to me. Especially the way he magically pulverized every pitch after doing nothing for three innings.

I haven’t been playing a ton recently but was trying to close out my WS rank before the card values drop so I’ve played like ten games in the last 24 hours….of course get matched up with four guys over 1000 and two top ranked streamers…..anyways like 8 out of my ten games my opponents had Acuna and Ohtani.

How in the hell do these guys manage to complete TA, the Acuna program and some of them be over 1000 in RS within a week? I feel like the amount I play is unsustainable and I have like eight team affinity players. These dudes must play every second other than when they are asleep.

My bad for making an unnecessary post….just wondered what other people thought.

I’m not bringing this up as if I’m even on these guys level. I’m a tad older, have never streamed for a second and ultimately play for fun. Just mind boggling….all of it.

SDS

I'm not WS caliber but I would have had ohtani done the second it dropped if I wasn't in bed.

I had Accuna done in about 75-90 mins last night.

I finished TA3 the night the content dropped. Exchanges+collections got me 55% completed and 2 hours of showdown finished it off for me.

Of course I didn't have time for anything else since I only get a cpl hours a night/day to play but it was doable. I wouldn't imagine a streamer whose job is to play video games to have a difficult time completing these.

SDS

Acuna was pretty easy to get .... but I don't play online, so don't now about how they got over 1000 rating in a week.

I focused on Parraleling DeGrom - and just put in the TA3 players in vs CPU 9 inning games and had fun. The stats add up super quickly.

Is it really that easy? I’ve been playing quite a bit and like I said only have eight or nine of the TA3 players. I didn’t the collection for each division from all the cards I already had locked in.

If I can do it then yeah, it's that easy lol

SDS

They are both very easy to get. I have acuna but I'm waiting for another price drop to by the rest if the cards for ohtani. I have about 1.6 million stubs right now and that nothing, so people have over 5 million

So you just did ten showdowns to complete all of the divisions?

do all the card exchanges, play a little showdown and play aganist the CPU to do the pitching, hitting stats

no moments really

Acuna is pretty easy. I bought all of the sub 100 K HRD and ASG cards and built a lineup for RS and hit all the missions. Just have to knock out the moments quick. The TA3 is really what I’m curious about. I think one of the dudes I played had Acuna within an hour or two of the drop. These guys are nuts.

SDS

I'm not a good player - I muddle around in AS levels in ranked and mainly play events. I have Acuna and Ohtani. I did have the benefit of packing Vlad in the free ASG pack in the Acuna rewards path and I picked up Pete HRD card for 87k when his price dipped. It's not surprising that top players have both already and have reached top-ranking levels in RS.

Played Weens and BMac yesterday. BMac was streaming but that chubby looking kid Weens who is number one was offline when I played him.

What is the purpose of the guy not streaming? It’s kind of fishy to me. Especially the way he magically pulverized every pitch after doing nothing for three innings.

I haven’t been playing a ton recently but was trying to close out my WS rank before the card values drop so I’ve played like ten games in the last 24 hours….of course get matched up with four guys over 1000 and two top ranked streamers…..anyways like 8 out of my ten games my opponents had Acuna and Ohtani.

How in the hell do these guys manage to complete TA, the Acuna program and some of them be over 1000 in RS within a week? I feel like the amount I play is unsustainable and I have like eight team affinity players. These dudes must play every second other than when they are asleep.

Easily. I have all the TA's done. Only about an hour from Acuna which I could have had done yesterday had I not jumped on COD with a friend. Could have Ohtani if I wanted to spend the stubs. They also start at 700 in RS so only about what 10-12 wins to reach WS from there and most people quit against them. Most of these guys do this full time for a living.

SDS

To get TA's done really quickly, exchanges and showdowns are your best bet. With all the packs you get, you will replenish a lot of cards. Exchanges, play against CPU for stats, like 5 showdowns and some moments.

SDS

Interesting about Weens. I have played him before, and he is very hot-and-cold. Some innings he can't miss, and others he can't get a hit. Still almost unbeatable with his runs though. I'm curious if there is a zen involved. He streams though (and does really well on stream), so that seems less likely. He appears just like an introverted/awkward kid and one-track minded, so he might just not love streaming a lot.

I wouldn’t be shocked if some of these guys pay someone to do their offline grinding. Not accusing anyone I just know how much it sucks grinding for players

SDS

like this game is some people's life basically, especially some of the streamers. it takes a lot practice and time to get that good

i also think they dont stream constantly simply because its tiring and exhausting. it also might prevent them from completely focusing if its a tough game

It's as easy as having a friend do the grinding while you sleep in a diff timezone 🙂

It's very fishy. I don't believe anyone truly dominates this game. If it weren't for the fact the game wasn't very heavy on manipulation code..I think there would be a lot of people that just have the higher level coordination to have an edge.

But, in The Show, a ball is pitched..you swing..and the animation tells you what happened. If it has an agenda for you to miss a high fast-ball you'll be "too late" regardless of who you are.

Yeah, if these "Phenoms" aren't playing online against "normal dudes" there is a reason for that.

Zen and mouse play

SDS

Pretty sure already mentioned, but both those cards were very easy to get. I was just waiting on the all star packs to drop for Ohtani. Then he was mine within minutes. Did acuna yesterday and took about an hour and a half because had to play a couple cpu games to get the stats missions done. But moments were very easy and quick.
