Well there goes my sacks of stubs I was holding out on for with the gold BR players

I don’t think the BR cards are in the flashback packs. It wouldn’t make sense for them to be in them but I haven’t gotten any yet

It says BR cards specifically if I am correct

Yeah just saw that. Kinda dumb but guess it means to only invest in Diamond cards this year

For offline players like me this helps a lot… I can enjoy cards offline I would otherwise not earn just by buying them and at more reasonable prices I am for that
Question for you. If you play strictly offline, why not do franchise? I assume you like playing with non live series cards?

I like playing with all time greats and seeing the cards I collected as a kid… I do all the programs I just don’t play BR, Ranked and haven’t played events much in last 2 years

I mean the cards were already way over where they should have been, why didn't you sell? The silver and bronze were at max value for weeks.

Also don't feel bad I had about 100 Takashi cards and gave up on them ever having any value, I sold them for 12-18k lol. Huge L.

I don’t do bronze or silvers you barely make value on it. I have a ton of the golds and diamonds. Bronzes went for like 2k and max sell at 2500 and you only get 2250 of it. Not much profit. They changed it up a lot this year compared to last. So much easier to make stubs last year. Takashi was a given that they’d have something with it. I’d invest in the Diamond BR and ranked cards I doubt those will ever be free in packs

Nothing wrong with that. There is an entire community around DD, you don't get that with franchise. Also franchise has been the same stale and boring mode for the past 5 years. If they ever make It better they know they will lose a portion of the offline DD players, so it's never going to grt better.

In 10 years franchise mode won't be a thing. We will be the old guys talking about how great pacman was.

Maybe I'm just off, but feels like they bumped the difficulty in Mini Seasons. Rookie is a grind for me now, and it never is. Utley stole second and then tried to steal third. Batters stare at pitches on the black, all of which are called balls. Way more mistakes are punished for bombs. Wtf...

I don't care much, but it's shady and stupid for SDS to artificially manipulate difficulty like this.

Oh they did, I used to grind on rookie now for some reason HOF and legend are easier.

It's nuts, man, MS Rookie is juiced to the gills. I'm never late on heat on rookie, but now it's like we went back in time one year and I'm facing Fake Cabrera again...

I am a first year player. What cards are considered ""Legend"" cards? Thank you for any replies.

Retired players

Also, the Doc mystery doesnt have to be in one game.

They're not; it's either a slump or a coincidence.

Take me for instance: vast majority of people say the Halladay Showdown was easy, and it should be. I usually beat them, especially the all-bosses ones, when I have to do them.

This one? Failed 20+ times. Not going to beat it. I would still try if I needed the XP, but I've reached the last Big Dog pack, so I don't care.

As for Mini Season, I did the SB and 30 RBIs with 2H players, all on All Star, in the same season. You just had tough breaks.

Possibly! But I'm not looking for sweaty games on Rookie. I already have Babe so I don't need the Takashi pack. Meh. Probably won't go back to MS...

When does this round of mini seasons end? Gonna try to beat it 4 times to get all those BR players.

How are you guys approaching this? You think there’s enough games to do gold pitchers on AS, silver pitchers and bronze hitters in vet and all the other missions in one run? I’m about 8 games in and it looks like it might be tough. (And I’m winning, just not hitting a ton right now for some reason).

I started with bronze hitters and silvers pitchers and played on Veteran until I had those done. Then switched to Gold starters and FOTF and Prospect hitters on All Star until I got 10 wins. Then played rookie the rest of the way with that same lineup. I completed everything but sac flys and the 40 extra base hits.

Yeah, I was using a bunch of gold prospects on all star and not getting many XBH.

The 40 extra base hits would be the one you would need the whole season for, I skipped that on and did all the others
