How High Should I Keep My Stub Balance Right Now?

SDS

I'm at 1.7 mil with a goal to collect all 99s (have 12 to go).

At this point in the cycle should I just try to maintain a balance of slightly over 1 mil? Just in case a new, overpowered card comes out?

I was down to 12 about 3 days ago and most of those were over 300k, Now I only need one more. I been making about 1m a day. I am 10k from putting an order in to get Ruth than I will have all the legend and flashbacks once I finish TA5. I will need nothing off the Market until new content drops.

I was down to 8k yesterday and 5k today. I do have extra time lately at work to flip cards.

Realistically if you have all those cards, not all of them are going to be locked into collections. If something drops that you absolutely must have you can those cards to buy anything new. That being said, what else are you really looking for? Maybe a Trout?

Yeah. Good point. I really could get my balance lower and "panic sell" if a Trout or similar comes out.

Even if a trout does drop, he'll only be a million stubs if you want to be one of the first ones to have him. Wait 3 days and he will be 300k at most, just like every other rare card.

If you're sitting over a million you'll be fine for whatever drops in the future. Honestly I've been taking my time collecting all 99's this year so I don't get bored. I haven't even opened any of the packs I've gotten from TA5 yet or the 9th inning program just because I want to have something to do after I 100% all of it.

SDS

It's crazy to me how much people play this game. Collecting over 90% of the cards seems insane to me. On a game that will die as soon as the next one comes out a year later. If a pointless grind is fun to you guys, then so be it, I guess.

I enjoy playing the game but putting in actual, daily, hard work to collect as many of the cards as possible seems like a colossal waste of time to me. Again, this game ends every April....

I really think it's a psychological thing. I truly am a completionist.

True. This is the first year I played DD. And while it's a great mode that respects the consumer, I can't see myself going through this again next year. My personality is too addictive. Next year it's back to dynasty...hope they improve it.

Hi, my name is Save and I'm a collectoholic.

SDS

I was really gonna try to collect every card this year, but I've really started to get burned out so I decided to sell everything that wasn't locked in. After buying all the cards I needed to give myself what I think is the best possible lineup, I'm sitting on about 500k.

Everyone has their goals for a game. If you’re not a collector that’s ok. But like you said a new game will be out in 5 months. So my question is why play? Your record and online accomplishments will die the moment you purchase the next show game.

I collect and play at the same time. It’s very easy to multi-task this year. So why not do both?

Hard work and video games never belong in the same sentence.

I play the actual game for the gameplay. Along the way, If I see goals that are achievable, then I'll follow a path to get that card or reward. Going through menu's for a majority of my, oh so precious play time, is not fun. But I do agree that I tend to multitask and do multiple objective at once.

Good example, I just got all the strongholds for the 9th inning umbrella conquest, but now I have no desire to finish simulating/playing the remainder of the map.. Maybe if I could keep this babe ruth card or something for next year's game...then maybe I would put more of my free time towards clicking through menus.
