Thoughts on Bonus sets?

Bonus sets are new to '19 and dominate club points. I like them because it makes the game more fun. It's something extra to chase and care about. For example, I used to not care about the LL in the HoF box. Now, I'm always disappointed when I don't get him. What do you guys think?

    IMO, its merely an evolution of what started late in 2017 version when bonus players themselves were introduced.  Ever since then its been somewhat of a money grab, trying to get the specified bonus players every event.   This is basically the same concept but on a larger scale.    Instead of paying to play its paying more to play essentially.
    Everyone plays the game different and its another way to cater to the people who the game should cater to ultimately.

    I love it when its two players. Makes the chase easier.

    My option isn’t on there. But I’m impartial but I lean towards not liking it. It’s hard enough to get legends as is, but that’s not good enough anymore. You need the set to win an event more often than not. It’s just the nature of the game, it’s designed to push people to spend more, which I understand.

    It definitely incents purchase, and pushes big spenders even further up the dominance spectrum.  I would like to see more attainable "super bonuses" but when they require both ATGs in the boxes and both legends like most days it is active, it's a pretty egregious money grab.

    Like everything else with this game, it is getting to a point where I can't afford it. Just a personal preference not to spend gobs of money on a mobile app that is not very consistent.

    Love it because it gives me more to chase on weekends. But... agree with snowy I think a set of 4 is way to many I enjoy the sets of 2.

    No issues with it on my end.

    I can only recall one time where I really 'benefited' from a bonus set. Let me tell you, when you have a nice bonus set, the fun factor multiplies by a lot!

    Completely agree @DFBB. Twice in college I was lucky enough to get a bonus set and man was it ever a blast. The fun factor was through the roof. Good thing I had enough booze, snacks, and drugs to get us all through for a couple of days.

    Are you referring to a 3 day cocaine-fest with 2 lucky ladies?

    Don’t care one way or the other as a solo guy. Would probably like it if I was in a competitive club,

    They get carried away with it, as they do with most things. Tone it down and find a happier medium and the sets will appear differently (to me).

    F*** Glu and their bonus sets:



    I got Yount an hour before the event ended tonight so couldn’t really take advantage.

    This is probably what my answer should be but I have more or less accepted the way things go.  Im prepping for multiple 4 player sets or 5 and 6 player sets with a super ultra bonus of having both sets soon or next year

    They have reached the point where you need players from previous boxes!

    Oh look, a bonus set finally. Can we get a bonus set with stickers soon?? Maybe get an extra 5 points per RBI if you have the "say cheese", "outta here" and "ewww gross" stickers?.. just an example

    I liked bonus sets, then before i stopped playing they removed the spotlight players from the weekday ones and I soured on them a good bit.

    They brought them back as part of sets, but those spotlight bats are brutal on the gold. 😪 One of my favorite things about solo? Zero temptation on those boxes. 😁
