Not quicker than Showdown, but if you suck at Showdown, then MTO isn't bad. An MTO run on Vet will get you 62 team affinity points max for that division. That is enough to get one of the 42 series packs. To get 100% on the Division's TA you'd need two MTO runs on Vet, finish the division's conquest map and complete all of the division's moments. Definitely not quicker than Showdown, but if you suck at showdown that might be the quickest way to go.
--And depending on how much time you have you can finish an MTO run in about two sittings. After about 5 hours of playtime, I made it to the ALCS with the Astros. Again, not faster than Showdown, but probably the quickest option outside of Showdown.
I think such a promo would only benefit the fan base in the US. Just like the Challenge of the Week stuff, I can't compete for those nice signed memorabilia just because I live in Europe. I guess shipping is too expensive. That kinda sucks.
Are those of us in Europe eligible for any COTW prizes? I didn’t even think we could win the digital prizes (i.e. stubs).
Yes we can win those digital prizes, I have received those stubs multiple times. But for the actual memorabilia you need to actually live in the US.
[censored], that’s good to know. I’m usually a decent COTW player (not great) but in some I crept into the top 100. I just never pushed for more after a few attempts because I assumed I was ineligible to win anything. Thanks for the info!
I wonder what has happened more, if any. Guys who make WS using directional or guys who complete the extreme stuff using directional?
I honestly believe it is nearly impossible to make WS using directional. Once a good player figures out the other is using directional there are just too many ways to exploit those players. I spend most of the first inning probing to see where they’re swinging.
I like how his SS card both this year and last year feature a change up even though Wagner never actually featured a change up irl. In fact when he was interviewed back just before he retired when he was member of the Braves, he was asked why he didn’t throw a change up and his response was that he didn’t want to have to maintain a fourth pitch when he had a curve and slider to use as offspeed pitches. What’s even funnier is that he admitted in the same interview that he actually threw a 2 seam fastball but wouldn’t tell his catcher that he had one because he didn’t want the confusion of the signs during stressful situations he would throw it on the normal fastball sign just get a little extra movement. Just some interesting little known facts about him.
Just beat it 1st shot, went into the final down 7-15. Neither the mini showdown or Kershaw was that hard. Just sit middle up fastball with Kershaw. He doesn't really paint edges, lay off anything that starts below mid zone as it will likely sink or tail. I found this to be the easiest showdown yet.
