Fun, memorable game! Tim with the Walk-Off! Crazy cool!!
Great nostalgia and I liked the Costner interview.
Think they’d make this a yearly thing..?
That would be fun!
Was a great matchup!
Heh! I totally feel you, bro! This is the first year where I've played online fairly consistently. I feel like I am as good as you explained: can't hit squat, other dudes destroy me, I am always feeling like I need to avoid the mercy rule in RS, etc.
While I was enjoying trying to prestige some of my cards' stats while playing online, I quickly realized that I have no real skill online. It's like you said - any time I get a solid hit I feel it's just dumb luck. I'd say more than 50% of my online wins (RS & Events) have come from quits and disconnects. I'd say I've won about 10 RS games fair and square. Same goes for Events. I have no clue how to use the PCI. I've tried it, but can't stay with it long enough to get comfortable and go back to directional.
So what I do now is I go into every online game knowing I will lose - just make it a given. So if I do win, I feel great about it! Even if I'm up I still count on losing. But if I somehow pull off the win, it's very satisfying! When I have won big in rare occasions, I then realize how it feels to play against me! Lolz!
In any case, by having this "loser mentality," I've had tons of fun playing online! Unfortunately, that also means I rarely can prestige my cards that need the prestigin'. I only have 4 Prestiged cards. Workin' on getting Paxton prestiged but still got a-ways to go.
But hang in there! Losing sucks but have some fun with it and change up your expectations and see if that helps! Good luck, yo!

Lolz! Henke was the 1st guy I was able to prestige! (Or maybe after I managed to prestige Roy O. - not sure..was neck-and-neck.) But he’s 1 of my only 4.
I'm with you, SekiroDiesAlot!!! I DESPISE Moments!! They're tedious, inconsistent, and a complete waste of time!! To be fair, I see why SDS utilizes them - you want to earn those cards/rewards, you gotta earn em!
Moments are true to form "work." I hate them because they take time away from Events, Conquests, etc. I wish they were as simple as you do one try, then no matter what - done! But that's never the case..Ever.
The worst one for me, so far, was in last year's game and it took me 3 hours to complete this McCutcheon Moment. Pure heck. So far, this year, it was that dang Corbin Burnes one that came out yesterday - get 10K's w/o a walk or hit. Needed 1 more K and we're in the 9 inning, and the game ends on a weak double play - gotta start over. Ugh...
They're a "Necessary Evil," I guess... But, regardless, overall, the game is super-fun!
@Scratch1977 said in Altuve and Bregman cheated:
Sigh... Guess I should get used to all this. So be it.
Although I cannot defend my team’s actions, I will forever stand by them. Hopefully this next chapter is one of them proving themselves after all this. Hopeful for redemption at some point.
Yes, it’s sad and disheartening, but stuff does happen and all we can do is learn from it. #Stros4Lyfe
Unfortunately that vacates your guys' WS win as well. Maybe not officially but in the eyes of literally everyone else, nobody won the WS that year.
Sigh... Sadly that's the reality of it all. Alls I can do is accept it and just continue to support them in this very dark time. I'll still despise those dang Yank fans that always chant "F*** Altuve!," but I get it. So be it. I stand by my Stros. Can't defend them, but will support for life!
Well, since I am bid number 2,360 for Randy, I may as well give this 250 RS innings thing a shot…
Gotta find a way to make it a “fun grind.” Like another person said, go in not caring about a loss or getting rocked - just get those innings and try and P-level some of my guys up. We’ll see… ️
@JoshJays = Nah. Fair & Square, my friend! Go Stros!
@BlueDgr = Thanks! But it's still 2 WS Championships. I understand the [censored]-hurtingness, but y'all will ALL be aight. Altuve, Bregman, and Yuli RULE! They all do! Go Stros!
@My fellow Astros fans = #BuryMeInTheH What an amazing season! 2 WS Championships! I love this team and organization so much! The parade was a BLAST!!! The haters can and will hate, but that's nothing new and this team showed the world that the Stros are absolutely #1! There were so many historic moments in the WS - just beautiful!
The Phillies were a great matchup and, no doubt, they put up a great, sweat-it-out kind of fight! The Philly fans are proud of their ability to be pieces of filth, but there are good ones out there (like my cuz and Uncle). Honestly, it was when the Philly fans verbally attacked Mattress Mack that the momentum REALLY took a swing! Even Mattress Mack admitted he underestimated the spew of filth that would come from their fans, but in awesome H-Town fashion, we took that energy and brought ANOTHER WS title to H-Town! So proud of our players! Great job, Dusty and the entire organization!
Let's do it all again next year!
Just happened for me for the 1st time for MLBTS22 about an hour ago. LS Brandon Woodruff!
Couple of questions regarding this new card. He’s registered as a RF, but what about his other abilities?
1.) How do I put him in as a Starting Pitcher..?
2.) If I wanted to use him as a Relief Pitcher, then can I just sub him in..?
3.) Will he be able to earn parallel points for any type of pitching..? (Or does he only get points as a RF, regardless if he pitches..?)
Thx for any info!
