Why Doesn’t SDS put cards like Milestone Miggy in packs and make him like 1:100,000 odds like Madden and 2K?

SDS

Are they allergic to money?

Don’t get me wrong I am grateful and appreciate that they do not do that, but it is kind of mind boggling.

SDS

Like Golden Tickets in Madden or Signature limited in 2K or whatever they make the impossible ones to pull every year.

Different business model. doesnt have to be "get every last cent" to be successful.
in fact not being like that makes them more of a success

SDS

Baseball as a sport in general in comparison to football and basketball, is more invested in keeping its fans happy. I don't know how that affects their business model I really don't care I'm sure they make their money. I'm not saying that the other two sports aren't interested in keeping their audience pleased, just look at the [censored] flag throwing Fest in the NFL right now. You really don't see that in m l b. And I'm grateful that they give us that.

Lol, “are they allergic to money?” Bro WHAT?!? Do you honestly believe anyone would ever pay for stubs specifically to buy packs just to chase a card with odds of 1:100,000?? I’ll never understand MLBTS gamers. When we run out of reasonable things to whine about, we don’t simply stop whining. We just start whining about unreasonable things. But we make sure to do it with this undeserved air of superiority and condescension.

Never change, brah.

Nobody is whining. I’m honestly curious. I’m surprised you find it hard to believe people spend money on packs in sports games to pull cards with horrible odds? Your post is the definition of condescending air of superiority brah.

Why doesnt sds do it when madden and 2k do?

Sds makes only 1 game, small staff, so game sales is probably where they make their money and they dont "need" to extras hunt.
However the others - have huge staffs make multiple games and probably cant even get to break even on game sales alone.
ever sit through the credits at the end on a game like final fantasy or resident evil(from one of these huge studios) the credits list is longer than a lord of the rings movie.

SDS

Purely and simply; SDS arent as greedy as EA. (Except for the Mookie price, but ill skip by that 😄 )

SDS - you can buy Stubs, you can either use these to buy players or packs. They're also VERY generous with free cards. Ethical.

EA - You can only buy the Points, which can only buy you the packs - Not ethnical. Gambling. Also, I cant speak for MUT, but i remember Fifa - every icon SBC used to cost the same as Mookie. With barely ANY free packs or cards.

Please do not think the grass is greener, it couldnt be further from the truth.

Are you considering in addition to the mission already or only location is randomly in pack? The card isn’t intended to be exclusive; they made fairly simple missions/stats for nearly everyone to get him in celebration of his milestone.

They want him to be celebrated and enjoyed, not the first 1mm card of the year.

I mean Mookie is going to be pretty cheap to collect if you’re willing to wait for them to gift you more cards. This year has been by far the best for completing collections IMO

SDS

They don't screw the players which is why I buy the deluxe version of the game every year and not Madden or NBA.

SDS

He will be available ,right now its a marketing manuever. Look up one day right before 22 comes out and you can get him for 19.95 at Walmart.

SDS

I’m sure they’ve done their market research and have come to an understanding of what works and what doesn’t. Also as a company you have a certain reputation. If you change something even ever so slightly it can cause people to be turned off. I also think the show is self aware that their product has not been as good as it can be. So the best way to keep people playing and interested is to give them free or easy to obtain cards. The more people that play the game the more money they will make. People are still going to come out of pocket to buy stubs.

EA releases multiple titles all with in months of another. The game life for people that buy all their titles is very short or limited. So EA mostly likely needs to turn a profit faster than SDS. SDS basically has 3 to 4 months of no new major sports games interrupting them. By the time The show drops in March or April the sports gaming community is ready for something other than madden, fifa and nhl.

Over the years as well, EA runs massive deals for their games come holiday season time. One year I got madden and fifa a few weeks before Christmas for $40 in a sales bundle off psn. So EA clearly is making a majority of their money off micro transactions. 2k is always free by January or February.

SDS

The less the Show is like Madden, the better.

SDS

This is the most ridiculous post I've seen all year

SDS

Another weird topic in a forum full of them.

SDS

Does it matter? I'll still somehow pull the same no name no face 55 overall player 14x a month. Which is absurd when you factor in the amount of MLB players there are.

SDS

I guess they don’t want to go full-on money hungry, and good on them for not doing that. FIFA, mobile games and all them are getting ridiculous with pay-to-win micro-transactions, so if SDS went into that too much, they’d get some serious backlash.

SDS

I just wish I could “play next moment” like in madden. What a time saver, especially when you know, there like a thousand of them.

I agree. And to say this is the most ridiculous post is really saying something. Though isn’t this Cody fellow the one who earlier in the year said that more content should behind a paywall? I don’t understand the thinking of some of these people here.
