Ok. Aside from the fact that we all agree that the servers suck, etc. Can we all agree that besides all that stuff this year's game was actually decent?
I know, this is going to probably become a hot topic of intense debate, but I think that, putting those things aside, this year's game was actually great.
At the beginning of the year, you had a free 99 Jackie, (although hard to obtain if you were NMS) and also some quality low level headliner diamonds. I think it was kinda weird that they stopped at 40 Headliner packs, as last year was 50, so I think we were all a little disappointed by that, but still some actually good quality cards that I'm sure some people still have in their lineups today.
The bosses ramped up in their OVRs pretty quickly, quicker than last year, but the bosses were great. Yes, I know, we are all still waiting for 99 Griffey, (as of the time of this post) but other than that, I think we have checked off the boxes for most of the diamonds that everyone was waiting for.
The collections this year, I mean the Legends and Flashbacks collections, were really good. When we looked at the calendar in like late August (?) and it said that there was already a big collection coming out, we were all probably caught off guard. "How could there already be a huge collection!!" It ended up being 99 Rivera. Then you had Mookie. Now we have Kershaw. I think they are done adding new big collection rewards to the Legends and Flashbacks. The All-Star collection was awesome. I personally haven't used 99 Ohtani, but I couldn't hit well against him online.
The Live Series collection to me was just the same as it always is, so nothing special to cover there.
Team Affinity this year was great, in my opinion. All 4 TAs so far have been good, with the rewards being pretty decent. I know TA 5 is coming, so yay. Make sure you stock up on all those golds and silvers, maybe even a few bronzes, my friends.
Even the Postseason Program has been good. High level cards, that could actually be used in a RS game or something. As of right now, the World Series is tied 1-1. (Sorry if I just accidentally spoiled it for anyone who didn't know that) I think it will be a great series.
This is my opinion about the major content that has happened so far this year. I'm sure I missed a few major content updates or something, but this is just off the top of my head.
Tell me what you think
