Miracle... made it through Mini Season

SDS

I'll post the details in the SDS pinned thread, but... after 2 failed attempts... I made it through. Thought I'd try one more time before the season reset. Notes:

  1. Played every game on All-Star, up until the final (I played on Veteran as I wasn't going to take ANY chances).
  2. Started the season after patch 4, and upgraded to patch 5 mid-season.
  3. Met the Pinheads in the semi-final. Got the weird "0-0" screen after finishing the regular season, and thought I was doomed.
  4. I made NO CHANGES to my team during the run.
  5. Before starting the season, I clicked on the Square button to reset the season 5 times.

I really can't think of anything else...

2 questions:

  1. Pull anyone good from the packs from this run
  2. Barring any system issues/errors, was the mode worth it/fun for you

I've been enjoying this mode honestly, it's a good way to get some free packs. Especially early in the year like now and when online gameplay is not at all where it should be, I think it's a very welcome addition. I've completed 3 or maybe 4 seasons so far and I'm planning on doing some more.

SDS

Meh, it takes less than an hour to get 5 packs on the Mystery Map conquest. About 5-7 minutes to get all the territories, then 3 games.

I've gone through Mini Seasons twice, but the second time I quit lots of games once I clinched the top spot. Can't see myself doing it again unless they change up the rewards...

SDS

I love the mode alot and have lucky had no issue should be done my 3rd run tonight and this is where I make alot of my stubs and knock out alot of the pxp mission for the feature program.

SDS

I made it through my first season no problem, 2nd time through I got W counted as an L. Even though it still showed in my win 20 games on All Star as a W.

But the Mini Seasons get you around 20,000 stubs as well depending on what you all complete.

And BIAH packs. Which are way better than standard packs, especially now that golds still hold some value.

I guess? I hate flipping and don't do it much, but you can flip for a few minutes and make about the same.

I have LS done, for a while now, so the stubs don't mean as much to me.

But to each his own! Let's all enjoy the game as we want 😃

SDS

I really enjoy it too but after having about 7 incorrect losses in season -, I thought I figured out how to avoid them and finished the season. M
Started another one and after it starting right with 6-0 record, 5 straight losses given for wins with me doing what I was doing before.

It’s obvious that they can’t pinpoint what the issue is as it happens to some and not others. Frustrating. .

No good pulls 😞

I really did enjoy the mode once I made it through 🙂

The work around for that is to back out to the game's main menu (out of DD completely) before each game of MS.

Looking forward to the new mini season starting Tuesday to give me something to do. Hoping they can solve any issues with this mode and keep a somewhat similar reward structure as we go.

I don’t really feel like playing H2H right now with the way that’s playing. I’ve kind of decided I’m done with H2H unless they can get it playing better.

So, conquest and mini seasons it is. I didn’t have any issues with my one mini season run. Probably should have played more.

I’ve been doing mystery conquest map since it’s kind of quick and easy. I never really repeated the mystery map last year. But with stubs at a premium and me trying to compete LS, being able to open 10 or so packs a day is nice.

SDS

Really fun; now that I've completed it once, I use it to play a game or two on higher difficulties to warm up before jumping online.

Going against 99 Randy with rookie Banks, Mathews, LS Donaldson, LS Cutch, LS Mariners/Twins/Red Sox to work on the missions for the main and cover program on HoF and Legend is good practice... but not good in the standings lol

I’ve pulled my best cards of the season from that end pack (trout + tatis in separate runs), so keep plugging away. I think it’s definitely been a good new mode; just update the missions, the reward card, and don’t reduce stubs earned and I would definitely play through that with some regularity for the year.

Eww.

I've played and finished 4 with zero issues. It's my favorite mode this year.

I just wish it worked for everyone else.
