I bought the DD version and pulled one diamond from the regular packs, an 85.
I had fun last night. There were some server issues in the beginning and I had a server issue after finishing a moment, so I had to do it over. It wasn't that big of a deal though.
The fresh commentary was nice, it seems more natural now, especially when they talk about the players. I did all of the moments in the feature and Ruth and then started a mini-season. After the first game (which I lost), I finished the Ruth program. I stopped around 3:30 pacific because of the server maint at 4. I was a bit frustrated at first, dropping down to low cards, but I got used to it pretty quickly. I tried the market but everyone was flipping and the prices were going up fast without the sales, so I stopped. I didn’t end up buying anything at all (cancelled orders) but I did sell some dupe commons for a few hundred each. It was nice playing with a purpose. I was tempted to buy some stubs to get some big pack bundles to get more players, but I decided not to.
So has anyone been able to get confirmation if you get the deluxe for Switch and PS5, you can use them cross platform doubling up? Seems to be some confusion and I don't want to be the sucker
This is directly from the FAQ:
It varies by platform and the edition you purchase. Linking accounts between Xbox and PlayStation will allow you to receive the bonuses from purchase of MLB The Show 22 on those platforms, regardless of which edition of the game you purchased. Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition or the digital version of the Standard Edition on Nintendo Switch will not be able to share bonus items across platforms, even with linked accounts. Players who purchase the physical version of the Standard Edition on Nintendo Switch can share bonus items, but are advised to link the account in-game (available on 4/1) BEFORE entering any voucher codes you may have, to avoid potential issues with redeeming them.
Idea: Your allowed to choose which difficulty you want to compete in. Like Online Rated.
Each difficulty has the same rewards each month but they are acquired by accumulating wins, not ranking up to the top level.
Veteran - 50 wins
All Star - 40
HOF - 30
Legend - 20/25
You would have guys that dominate on HoF go the all star route so they could dominate lesser opponents. At the same time the people that struggle on all star would lose interest because they are getting smoked. 9f anything there would have to be more than a 10 win difference but either way you need a ranking system in my opinion
It's interesting that every diamond revealed so far has been a 90. I'm assuming the LS will have some 85-89.
If they're giving 90s right off the bat, most LS are gonna be irrelevant and pretty much just used for collections. Unless we get a lot more 90+ this year than we did last year. I think we only had 5-6 90+ LS at the beginning of the season.
Trout, Cole, Acuna, DeGrom, Betts and Bellinger if i remember.
I’m assuming with them being 90s off the bat it won’t be as easy/short as it was last year. The paths haven’t made much sense for a while, exchanges are always the quickest and most effective to the point it’s over powered.
There's a similar post. Based on the preview I think there will be seperate programs that somehow tie into one another. Of course I'm just guessing but they mentioned XP to collect the 30 FOTF cards, however they also mentioned year round rewards, some type of time limit and feature program. I am no detective.....clearly ..but it feels like Team Affinity will tie into the inning or featured program but not that they will be the same.
2020: Ranged from 86 (Position players) to 88 (SP)
2019: 87-89 (same deal)
2018: You received a Gold Harold Reynolds or Brett Gardner. Compile stats w/ the card to eventually earn a 87 Pee Wee Reese. (2018 was not everyone's favorite.)
