Last year was different with all the new xbox players.this year is more reminiscent of years before that. also got to think there are less ppl buying stubs cause of inflation and gas prices and flipping cause of that.

Margins are free money. Everyone wants in. We added a 3rd platform and spread out the QS values from Diamond/Gold/Silver etc, to actually correlate with the player ratings.

Don't play MLB the Market. You will get frustrated this year.

Market feels like there are no xbox players this year compared to last year.

I started with about 30k yesterday and now I'm at around 140k. Focus on items that move quickly that net you at least 500 stubs, and spread the wealth. 5-10 different cards at a time if you can.

Oh, and never flip a card that you don't want to get stuck with. Sometimes value drops and you either take the loss or keep it and move on.

I'll look again but I'm just not seeing thos types of opportunities unless you buy a bunch of stuff early morning and prey they got up at night

It is going to be a huge grind it appears this year.. You can make stubs like the guy above said, but you have to ask yourself what is your time and energy worth. I have always flipped and made more stubs than I can spend, but my time is more valuable to me than 500 stub flips for hours and hours, so I am probably not doing it unless later game it opens up.

Before anyone takes offense, to each their own. No judgement for those that are flipping all day with small margins

We will see how it goes, but as is I don't see many people competing the collections without spending money or playing the game 5 hours each day

This is pretty much exactly how I feel about it. Last year was my first year to play DD and flipping was beyond easy. I finished the year with tons of unused stubs. As much as I like the "collect them all" mentality, I am great with a game that causes me to choose what I have and build a team that works for me. The Griffey collection came so late in the year last year that I feel like I hardly used him. I am not going to lose sleep at night even if I miss out on collections involving my favorite players.

SDS

If you're wanting to do collections, flipping gets so much easier later in the year. probably starting in September making stubs gets real easy. i would focus on enjoying the game now and double back on collections later. I also imagine they'll do the same with flash sales and stuff so all the headliners and other pack specific cards will continue to get cheaper and cheaper.

SDS

Last year we had XBox players new to this style of market. This year they know better. I get the feeling that the only people on Switch playing the game are people using the device as an extension of their PS an Xbox accounts.

Also, last year’s TA program gave out tons and of LScards and stubs.

I've been flipping cards for several years now and I've shown a lot of people how to do it. I've never experienced this much difficulty before. They have changed the prices up and not all gold's are minimum 1000 stubs anymore for example. I still think it will get better. It's tough to get those expensive diamonds without successful flipping.

Yeah definitely margins are not reliable or predictable. I don't leave bids for very long because it could disappear inside an hour, or even faster.

Even if it gets better, how many people are going to still be playing? This should be prime time for this game! that's what people don't get. This should be the most fun point In the games cycle, but it's not. They may fix it, but will all the casuals still be interested after going through an entire program where they hardly got any packs to open? When they couldn't fiddle around on the market and make a little stubs? When the idea of making the 2million you need for collections is more daunting than intriguing?

What happens when the first collection drops and the only people who can complete it are the pros and the wallet warriors?

Yep. Can't argue with that. I mean, really, if the market doesn't get better inside a week, I'll drop the game. The collections do seem unreasonable. I made a ton of Stubb's last year and I was able to get what I wanted. All I had to do was work for it, which I'm willing to only do to a point. I have other things to do you know. If they really want to make it this difficult to earn stubs, they can find someone else. The amount of XP you have earn on the faces of the game event is ridiculous. But yeah, I understand the pain.

Or you could just play the game. And what are you talking about the number of xp you have to earn? There's already a TON of ways to make xp. I've been done for days.

SDS

I play the game more for the team building, buying and selling tons of players until you get a team that works for me. To be able to do that costs tons of stubs, so for years I spend as much time flipping cards as I do playing the game. I've always loved that. Last year I played 1700+ games, this year I've played 2. Since the market flipping has turned so crappy I've not been able to do much with a team and I'm not a pro player by long shot. So when the cames been out 2 weeks and the 1st 2 games I played I played teams with all diamond players, I got my aS. kicked. I'm not playing the game to lose. I'm like you'll I'm not wasting my time or spending every dollar I make on this game. If the market doesn't change I'm not playing.

I'm not a kid. And if you want to sit there farting around on the market more power to you. But you're in no position to complain when it doesn't work. It's a baseball game. The market exists for people who don't want stuff to sell it and for people who do want stuff to buy it. They don't owe you the ability to work the market to make stubs.
