I'd probably lean TA as there are more cards and will be more opportunities to get cards throughout the year... with that being said I will not stop grinding WBC content until I get Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso at minimum but my ultimate goal this year is to complete all the programs.
Not sure who it was but all of the Philly and Toronto outfielders in the Hallady showdown all have max ability also. Maybe even an active perk. It is almost comical if it didn't waste so much of my time.
That 96 Finley is a hitting glitch big time. Still trying to figure out my main DD team and should have that sorted out by Sunday when I'm done with Team Affinity Season 1. I'm thinking 1B 99 Ortiz, 2nd 99 Robinson, SS 94 Banks, 3B 99 Chipper, C 91 Piazza, RF 95 Buxton, CF 96 Trout & LF 96 Finley. However some of the 42 series cards could find spots as well, just depends.
Its not cheese, its a strategy to throw off the hitters timing.
Slide stepping makes it harder to locate so its not always a great tool (especially if you're using pinpoint). With other inputs, you can slide step with almost any pitch fairly easily. Most players see slide step and assume fastball and are waaaay early on pitches.
Been thinking about doing the same, been flipping with a little success so im about halfway there, trying to be disciplined and not do team collections of any sort unless they pay for themselves with rewards until I get him.
Yeah, this thread is kinda talking me into saving up for Trout too. But I have a loooong way to go. Onky team collection I’ve done so far is the Twins because I had to have Kirby Puckett on my team.
How that's Puckett play? Looks like a good card.
Original power is meh, but once he is tier 2 or higher he starts rolling. And hits hard line drives from anywhere in the zone. And fielding is as good out of the gate vs a End game Mays or Griffey.
Kirby never really was known for his power so it’s cool to see he hits liners all day. I think it’s the best part of this game so far. Cards like this are actually useful where in years past they were useless
As soon as i posted earlier and went in game and just destroyed a ball over fence. But yeah it looks like there will be a place in the lineup for pure cont hitters and mediocre power guys that can clear bases with line drive gappers.
I’ve never tried quick counts and never want to. I enjoyed the last event and when I saw this one would be quick counts I refuse to play. That ain’t baseball...
See I absolutely love quick counts. It's fast paced game play, get ready to swing be ready to pitch. No sitting around working the count, taking pitches, trying to drain stamina... Just boom. Here it is lets go. Games move very quick.
Except when you win 11-0 and the game goes the distance. These games certainly take much longer than the 3 inning games despite the quick counts.
