If I remember correctly from last years streams, the head content guy is a huge cardinals fan. Its the reason they had 2-3x the amount of signature series cards last year than any other team and I think his biased is showing again this year with that Flaherty rating. He’s been good but not diamond worthy, not yet.
Gotcha. As I said not saying he sucks but just wondered why he’s a diamond. Thanks.
Just like everyone else - stats over past 3 years. And when you have a sub 1 ERA for over half the season I would say that’s diamond level.
Even when I hate the challenges or the card...I normally just like to complete it.
Zoomed right thru the first 3...
But the Padres that they have put in the final challenge all have channeled their inner Tony Gywnn! Nearly impossible for me to strike them out. They are laying off of every pitch that 49% on the plate with perfect timing. Then popping something up or grounding out after fouling off or laying off good strikeout pitches. Austin Hedges all the sudden has become a hitting savant!
Game is playing like str8 trash! Cant believe more dont have the base running issues I have daily. Hitting is bad timing is off etc. Online is a trainwreck
Base running definitely has issues as well. Runners just frozen, sometimes on deep balls that obviously are going to be hit over the outfielders head, as well as at times when you know the ball is going to drop between the outfielder and infielder, and even though you're pressing 'L1', he still stands there until the ball actually hits the ground, but then it's too late to get extra bases.
Mabye they are playing homerun derby non stop? You level up very quickly doing that.
I’m not sure how “quick” it is. 25 xp per homer and It’s probably 3-4 xp levels in about an hour or so, and if you’ve ever played home run derby that [censored] gets old after about 2 times through.
I did the home run derby twice today when I should have been giving AL of my attention to my online class. I figured I could mindlessly play the HR derby and still pay some attention to class, whereas I couldn't really do both with an events game. The derby is good for XP, as I gained almost a full level each time I did it, and I did it in the high 80's in silver. The program stars were disappointing though, as I only got like three each time.
Comeback Logic = CLT. Get guys with high CLT and they preform better with RISP, in late innings, and WHEN BEHIND thats the point of the attribute right? it isn't just randomly happening to you all. you need high CLT pitchers to counter it. It actually makes you sit that high diamond SP of yours and go with a high CLT reliever and closer as you would be doing in real life.
learn how to work the market - find the deltas - if you care about the game & put time into it, you will be able to make plenty of stubs
500 stub drop on a gold you bought to flip is a big deal. 500 in the grand scheme of things is nothing, but when buying a specific card for the sole purpose to flip it, 500 can make or break profit on a gold.
so then use your judgement dude - flipping golds is a WASTE OF TIME and NONSENSE !!!!
this is called being SMART and being on top of things - who wants to flip 100000000s of bronzes for baby profit - just go for the deltas, look to find the holes , the market is fluid and ever changing by the half hour
I feel like there should be more content out right now. I know I know, it’s only a week and a half in but I feel like with everyone quarantined there should be more stuff to do. And it’s not like I play the game every hour of the day, I go out and do stuff but I just feel like showdown is the only thing to do right now.
You shouldn’t be going out and doing stuff though...
I live in the country just going out and throwing and stuff and I have a cage so I hit haha not going out in town
Ohhhh. That’s different haha. I used to have a soft toss station in my garage with a tee. Then I moved. I’d be doing that every day
