Future Stars is obvious and...well.....

SDS

I've seen so many posts discussing the disdain and general apathy for the future stars program. For what it's worth, I get it, I'm whatever about it, bring it on, why not? But isn't this whole thing obvious? SDS is making cool future stars for everybody to make the minor league players less upset about using their name and likeness with zero compensation. Obviously there are exceptions to the rule, so typical SDS guy...relax. Tin foil hat team, assemble!

Problem isn't future stars, problem is we already have prospects.

Fair gripe. The Madrigal/Lux thing is confusing.

I’m one of the few that’s happy about this actually. I have a full squad of basically prospects and the FOTF FS (Moncada, Albies) it’s kept things interesting for me. I’d be tired of the same old LS cards by now and same old legend cards.

I’ve welcomed this change.

Exactly. I don’t understand why people are upset about usable new cards. I for one don’t really feel like using the same players I’ve been using for the last 3 years. Id rather use a card and get excited about watching the dude next year than use another card of a guy I never saw play and never will.

I'm totally cool with all of it. The unexpected Covid crisis has lead to a year where we obviously know their attention is headed towards the next gen console (as it should be) and I kind of like the parade of recycled fan favorites from years past. This twist is cool and, why the hell not?

Because we were led to believe that the diamond prospects were the best cards those players were going to get, especially because there’s a whole collection. Now we get new versions of the same players within like a month for no reason? It’s lazy and scummy, and many people would prefer actual real flashbacks.

I think a set called Rising Stars would have been better, it could have included guys that are already establishing themselves, but still have ceiling, like Alvarez, McNeil, Jimenez, K Tucker, Urias, just to name a few.

Sure and even like a Gleyber boss for collecting X "future stars".

SDS

I think this problem would've been resolved if the Future Stars were all cards of players we don't already have. I love Alec Bohm, but buying him will feel like a waste once I get the Future star

I wouldn't have gotten that Gore card if I knew these cards would be coming out, I'd having finished the AL if I didn't lock in Keller, Bohm, Waters, and Kopech

Who told you that? Why does everyone want the same cards from years prior. These FS cards and TA cards increase diversity options. Madrigal's 86 had been a stud, I'll gladly take a 95 version now 🤷🏼♂

Nobody wants the same cards every year, but we don’t want multiple cards of the same player for no reason. It might not have been as egregious if they released them towards the end of the year, but we’ve only had the full prospect set for a couple weeks. Why have people lock in prospect cards without even telling us that they’re all going to be replaced by new versions of the same players soon after?

Kinda pathetic that you’re defending this tbh.

SDS

the prospect and future stars cards are cool, especially early in the cycle while useable with other cards since there’s not a lot of SS cards or pitching.
as a buccos fan we only have hope of a prospects “what if” until we ruin or trade them so getting keller, cruz and whoever is next is fun while they’re somewhat useable

not like those prospect cards below 90 overall are usable anyway

But why do we need 95 overall cards of the same players a couple weeks later? It’s not like we’re at the end of the year or something. The prospect cards were still very much usable for a lot of people.

Not to mention if you locked them in for Franco, only to find out they literally have zero use now.

SDS

I think the biggest thing that irks players is that the game is broken, yet they still have time to pump out money making cards, free cards that you kind to have to pay for if you go the showdown route, but are absolutely silent on the state of the gameplay.

Idk about anyone else, but I'd rather have the game play properly rather than shiny new cards every five minutes.
