While not a scam, I am not sure how some of you actually believe something in this game is free. There is nothing free in this game.

Ok, but since time is money, that means everything costs something, and if everything costs something, does it even matter? Do I have to have some internal debate about spending money (time) on either watching Netflix or playing mlbts. And then I'm spending money (time) on that internal debate, which doesn't seem prudent.

If Everyone's Super!!! No One is!!!

What's your definition of "free"? Of course they don't literally hand out cards (well actually they do, on daily log-ins) so yes, you have to go and earn a card. But things are absolutely "free" in the sense that we don't have to spend any money on this game to enjoy the game and complete programs / collections.

Now if you want to argue that time is money, fine. But you're going to have to invest something into the game if you want to find success (completing programs and collections).

I guess if you didnt buy the game and didnt complete a mission it might be free.

Holy hell…..it’s a video game. Way to many people get [censored] hurt over virtual cards. At the end of the day it’s still a [censored] game. The developers don’t care what anyones job or life is. They put out content and like it or not, play it or not, at the end of the day it’s a service you can take part in or pound sand. It’s not that difficult in reality.

The part that gets me is having to do the showdown. I'm terrible ... TERRIBLE at showdowns, so I'm not going to even try this program.
Oh well.

SDS

OK, moment of confession: after complaining about it and saying I wasn’t gonna do it, I bought a few cards to get the PXP started and I finished it today after going through the showdown I said I’d never do. And it really wasn’t that bad at all. You don’t have to spend a lot of stubs to buy into the cards if you have to. But I have to confess it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was actually kind of fun.

Hey, I’m with you about showdowns. But honest. I got through it today. I only had to repeat it once. The secret for me was not to swing so early. Keep the bat back long enough for the curveballs.

SDS

I am never good at showdowns ever and I did it the first time I am very happy

Congratulations to you and me both!

The showdowns are now completely easy mode due to all the complaining on these forums. They used to be a challenge, now it's just one attempt and done.

For really good players sure... for us who cant hit not so much

SDS

Just don't assume everything is a fastball. That's what got me through those.

0 cards to start, have to do all moments and the showdown to get one; if you don’t want to grind for eternity you have to pick a pitcher, than get a 2nd card and the rest of the rewards are blah.

Which is why I didn’t bother with it, but I won’t complain that other people are getting free stuff. But yeah, the program should have come later. The big dog one was much easier to complete with the card access we had to it

I've moved on; after 4 years of nothing but DD, I've had enough. I'm back playing franchise for the first time since '17, and when I get enough of the FB and legends with XP from playing to do the stat grind, I'll play the Conquest maps days before the end of the program, in case I get the itch again. I'll probably end up playing Online Rated before I go back to DD though. How many times can you get excited for a 99 Frank Thomas that you get in 2-3 different, rotating fashion year in/out?

SDS

The real scam in my opinion is SDS charging money for this garbage.
