Day 1 TA5 Finest Lineups

SDS

For those of you who cruised through the collections and exchanges to get to the first two finest packs, what team did you put together to grind through TA5? Keep in mind this time around the player missions are actually repeatable, so you may want to use the TA5 guys over the Finest cards from the packs. My current team is below:

C Salvador Perez
1B Freddie Freeman
2B Brandon Lowe
SS Fernando Tatis Jr.
3B Max Muncy
LF Kyle Tucker
CF Bryan Reynolds
RF Juan Soto

SP Corbin Burnes, Gerrit Cole
RP Raisel Iglesias, Emmanuel Clase

SDS

C salvy
1 Lowe
2 moncada
3 I think Austin Riley but not sure
Ss Tatis
Lf winker
Cf ketel marte
Rf Soto

Cole Burnes Walker woodruff Means

All of the BP arms

I was ae to collect Griffey and Foxx and could do a bunch of exchanges but seeing as this is the last big program....I think....I'm gonna go slow.

I made a team from each division (well 4 to start) and will update as I aquire the Finest cards.

Here's my AL West team:

  1. Rickey Henderson MS RF
  2. Starling Marte Finest CF
  3. Jason Giambi Award 1B
  4. Carlos Correa Finest SS
  5. Yordan Alvarez PS LF
  6. Alex Bregman Award 3B
  7. Pudge Rodriguez Signature C
  8. Craig Biggio MS 2B
  9. Shohei Ohtani ASG P

I wanna put Foxx in but need a few left handed bats.

I personally will use Salvy, Muncy, Tatis, Soto and possibly mix Burnes into the rotation…..that’s about it honestly.

Great minds lol. I just finished the East conquest map and did well with most of those cards except for Lowe. I may just swap him out since a few more Cole strikeouts should get me to the last Finest pack in the AL East.

I did the Exchanges and Collections. Thinking if doing the Moments (even though I hate them) and then Conquest to get to 150.

However, I'm trying to decide if I want to load up on players from the same division, as the map, and just work on them one at a time until I complete all 3 maps.

Did you find it easier to just mix divisions that to load up on players from the same division?

Usually I focus on one division at a time, but the player missions are repeatable this time and they also count for the repeatable legends and flashbacks category. That means if you stick to the TA5 Finest cards the stats are double counting and getting you to the end even faster. When you first do the exchanges and collections you end up with 2 from each division, so it just made more sense to split it up.

As I get the last TA5 Finest pack from each division, I'll start swapping in the mission cards from other divisions to knock them out faster. Once I get all the TA5 Finest packs I'll just switch back to whatever cards I like the best. I'm not in a rush to get to the very end since any legends and flashbacks can also get you points. I'll get there soon enough without even trying.

I didn't get any of the packs last night but I'm taking this slow and not doing any exchanges at all. I took a month off and now I have so much to do with the CS and WS. Sept POTM, finest, 9th inning so no online needed and I'll get rewards all over the place. This is when this game is really fun

Same here about taking TA5 slow. Wish I had saved some content. It's almost like the first week when you have everything to accomplish. Lots of fun.

So technically if I did load up on the 12 Finest players, four from each division, even though I would be working on one division's map; I'll also get to the end faster in the other division than if I waited to load up players when I do those maps. Hmmm
