As infuriating as this game can be, it’s still head and shoulders above EA sports games like Madden for me. I love that there’s a legitimate debate between using a card like 97 Bryant vs using 99 Schmidt. If this were Madden, Bryant would be 25k and Schmidt would be 100k+ just because of a numerical advantage, and this would lead to ZERO team variety. I appreciate that there’s errors that only Reggie Jackson can seem to make, rather than the awful blocking that every offensive lineman in Madden seems to display. Tracking down a gapper with a 5 tool outfielder you’ve grinded for feels so much more rewarding than intercepting a ball just because your DB has a pulse. Even though baseball is such a number driven game, I’m glad the show isn’t high attribute numbers or bust.

It’s no coincidence that Colorado hasn’t gotten a card since 4/20
Well the most recent winner of a “major” had a punter at QB for handoffs. You don’t even need to pass the ball to be crowned the “Madden Champion” and the meta defense is sending the house and sacking them before they can read their progressions. We may complain about RNG, but Madden is absolute garbage.
It genuinely feels like the timing window between very early and very late is 1-2 frames depending on if it’s all star or HOF+

EVERY SINGLE PERSON I PLAYED TONIGHT ABUSED SOME KIND IF EXPLOIT
Running back and forth on the bases
Taking 3-4 extra steps
Playing in a stadium with rain
Using an Opener and then bringing in a starter
I reported every single one; but I don't even think that does anything as I've played people that I've reported multiple times.
Only thing you can do is get better at the game and beat them.
I believe I’m 22-3 in the event. Pretty sure all my losses are by a walk off or a run. Anyways my point is….I don’t really care about people doing that [censored] because I beat them anyways.
Yeah I’m also doing well in this one so far, 18-1 if I remember correctly, and I haven’t really run into much of anything. The biggest reach you could make is quick pitching, but it’s just not realistic to think everyone is gonna wait for their pitcher to come set in an online baseball game if they’re not forced to.
I think the question is who HAS them?
I haven't faced anyone who has either.
Who on earth are you playing? I've seen Brett and McCutchen in pretty much every lineup for a while now
No need for the blown gasket, Dragon!
Brett I've seen.
Kutch and Rollins?
Cool down, big guy.
Apologies for coming across like that. It was more that I wish i was playing guys that don't have those players lol
I would have to agree, almost everyone I play has Brett and Cutch and seemingly half of those people have Rollins too
I can't remember many since last year was my first but that Postseason Corey Seager from 21 (collection reward last year) was pretty amazing. Or if they want to pick one from last year I wouldn't mind that Kike Hernandez or Eddie Rosario.
Max Scherzer 2015
Justin Verlander 2012
Gerrit Cole 2021
Jacob Degrom 2018
Edit: I redid this because I put all legends the first time haha. Whoops.
I know it doesn't say pitcher, but I would definitely enjoy one of those.
That Seager was amazing but he single handedly killed my Braves that NLCS card
Anyone else tried Mookie out of position at short? I used Hank there all of last event and he didn’t make a single error in the 25ish games I played (also hit like .670 somehow) but in this event I’ve already made 2 costly errors on routine grounders with Mookie at SS. I know it’s not encouraged, but with a MIF secondary already and still a silver shield I didn’t expect it to be that bad or worse than Hank by any means.
I play most events until 20-30 wins and can confirm you will be playing someone above average most games no matter your record. I usually have a win percentage of about 75-80% by the time I tap out, but there’s a lot of frustration and bottom of the 3rd comebacks in there along with the early rage quits/DCs.
