Made it to Chafin. Hit 8 consecutive 98 - 102 mph at'em balls. Just a ridiculously abysmal mode that is just an incredible time sink. I'll end up playing EA PGA for a while or something as I don't like Showdowns whatsoever anyway. I'm usually impatient in trying to get them out of the way but actually took my time on this one to avoid HAVING to play something I really don't care to play all over again. Waited out pitches. Dude had no energy. At'em balls the entire round. Frustrating mode to play for the time you invest in it.
My favorite part is how there are 30 teams with 40 man rosters, so in the neighborhood of 1200 players. There were 340 FA on day 1. I've not bought packs, but opened any free ones and I can pull 3 FA out of basically any pack and sometimes get the unanimous 4 FA in a pack. Those are some great odds.
First at bat - 1st inning. Overlay said I was 0 for 5 with a K. Knew it was going to be a special set of moments. SDS does not disappoint.
The 2 doubles with 1 SB moment - I was Bronze 67 when it started. I was Bronze 75 before Carlos Martinez could find the strike zone. (Stage 2 Moment)
In around 30 attempts at above moment, Cardinal outfielders dove and caught around a dozen gap shots. Took about 35 attempts as I somehow hit more HR than doubles.
Appreciate the free stuff. Not a fan in the least of moments where the game plays differently than other modes that drastically for long periods, then all of a sudden, you are able to complete it almost effortlessly.
Earlier this year, I went back and looked at CPU stats and compared to this year. By late July / early August this year, I had already hit into more double plays than all of last year. Hit variety is super weak in offline games. Conquest is a double play bonanza and an infestation of at 'em balls. Play vs CPU on Vet and AS is just a HR derby (fine for PXP players) or an incessant amount of more at 'em balls. HOF vs CPU is better. I stink on Legend as I've tried it numerous times, lol.
Yeah, this speaks when you have a bunch of guys who historically give SDS and the game the benefit of the doubt ripping this lazy and insulting Season 4 release…..
Exactly. I never thought I’d see @arvcpa_MLBTS posting like this. I wish they’d host a town hall so we could hear them try to explain some of this.
Didn't they say something about a stream next week as well? Surely it can't be as cringe as this past stream........................That was disgustipating...
Did some of the Moments/Confirm Restarts and a quick game for the Topps Now completion and remembered how laggy it was previously on 'content day' when it was difficult to do basically anything for the first hour or so after 'pushing the button'. Only this time, no lag, no stutters or hesitation. I know a lot of folks quit playing already, but how many got fed up with the nonsense from this Season and just said nope, whether that be for today/next couple days or for good?
I play the game because I love baseball. SDS just happens to develop a game of baseball. They're making me regret playing their game. I bought SMB4 as well when it came out and have been playing more of that to get my fix.
SDS = Casey -- There's no joy in Mudville tonight; the mighty Casey struck out.
Work has been crazy of late so I'm a bit behind. Did finish Shark tonight.
Best card out of all packs was LS Cole
Base round for every choice pack
Gold for every DD choice pack
85 LS Rays pitcher in Chase pack
Rather disappointing to not get at least one rare tier or simply one decent overall - but it's free stubs, I suppose. Appears you guys got all the good pulls already, huh?
It's worth the risk in this case for 15K, but I'm 0fer almost everything in packs this year. 1 lone Harper from a Conquest DD pack what seems like long, long ago. Other than that, hundreds of nothing, lol. But, I'm not sinking money into anything. Just the free packs or, in this case, the cheap packs where it's close to break even. No way in Hades I'd drop 50K on one of these or other choice packs with my luck.
I did the Costco for grinding as well. I had to upload several times before it finally went through. Error after error until the upload magically worked. This was also the case for a couple I wanted to simply try out. Multiple uploads and the upload finally clicked.
This looks more like 'Collect 5 ASG players and obtain Zac Gallen' or 'Collect 10 ASG players and obtain Semien' rather than a boss pack. Other than O'Neill and to a lesser extent Cameron, these are poor choices for 'bosses'. Cue the 50K Choice Packs for the better cards.
Btw Diablo 4 is fantastic and Super Mega Baseball is pretty darn good too.
I started playing some SMB4 as well and do like it. I've also been impressed !gasp! with how EA has updated the latest golf game. It is very well done and has garnered much of my time. There used to be a time where I'd only play MLB. Unfortunately, the current direction of the game just isn't for me, and that's fine. I love baseball and will continue to play, but I'm not about the sudden direction with what could be 4 to 5 of the same player with a 99 just for the sake of set inclusions/exclusions and basically all the premiere cards behind packs. Last year the 'better' packs were 30K to 40K. Now we're at 50K and 60K and it's a rare instance to see any choice packs in Conquest or Programs. It wouldn't surprise me to see the Shark Map filled with Set 1 collectibles. Hopefully not the case, but there's not much rhyme or reason to the content feed this year.
