0/99 right now on diamonds in TA packs. But have pulled golds at a better than odds rate.

Same exact thing going on. Was dialed in and now timing is off bad. Can’t figure it out. Can’t hit at all.
Definitely patience is the key on showdown. I started off the season totally raking, grinding and building a team offline. Then started playing online and something happened after the 1.06 update my timing sucked, drop 80 points suck. Switched camera angle from SZ3 to Fish Eye 2 to see more of the game but smaller strike zone. And switched from buttons to analog, has been super helpful on borderline pitches to check swing easier. Good luck you’ll get it.
I’m an Angel fan so I went Marsh. My OF now is Marsh in LF, Trout in CF and Vladdy in RF. I’m happy.
My first pick was Reyes he’s pretty good, now he doesn’t fit into my rotation but definitely a solid card with good pitch choices, second I went with Morton also like him. Next I’m planning on Robles since I play a lot with a Nats Only roster he will fit nicely, his Bronze also plays well so as a diamond I don’t see how it could disappoint.
There’s going to be more. Follow Trevor May on twitter and twitch. @iamtrevormay he’s got a lot going on.
See I feel differently on this topic than most. SDS bit the bullet and said hey look this happens and we are making it happen for a reason. League wide BABIP is around .300 and even on barrels the batting average is .800. So 70% of the time you hit the ball it’s still an out and 20% of the time you cream the ball and it’s still an out. It sucks but actually one of the things I don’t mind about the game.
I was playing a Conquest game in Seattle and hit a ball to the gap. CF on the run caught the ball and hit the wall dislodging it for a home run. Definitely not even close to what happened there but that’s the only thing I’ve seen close personally.
Arenado was terrible for me.
I took Sandberg first and hate his swing. Jackie 99 is my fave 2B.
I played someone the other day that just hit everyone that was able to be leveled up. Reggie, Didi, Jacoby, Belli all HBP. I already don’t enjoy online play but adding in crappy humans it makes it worse.
Jason Castro is probably my favorite LH hitting catcher. I've been using Collins but he can't block balls to save his life.
I have gigabit fiber with an Archer AX11000 gaming router and play hardwired. The connections drive me insane. My ping at the highest is 5 usually sits 1-3. Sometimes playing online it’s like there’s 2 separate games going on. Extremely frustrating.
26-13 really don’t enjoy playing online much.
31 is my best I think.
I knocked out the Angels first but I’m of course an Angels fan plus Trout was way cheaper early. Then knocked out the easier ones to earn stubs. What I have left is still painful though. Mets Yankees Astros and Rockies. Degrom, Cole, Verlander and Arenado are all still needs.
In like the second week after release I pulled Arenado and tried to use him in not a fan of the swing. Sold him bought Trout when Trout was far cheaper. Rendon is by far my favorite third baseman.
Rays Twins Angels and Cardinals are my favorite Stage 1/2 cards. Albies FOTF is worth it also. Their second stage Wright is ok for being a 94.
