  • Yeah I mean none of that matters to me. He is double skill and currently the best player. I don’t care if his card is shiny or not. It was better odds for the best player. Like I said, I think they should be higher but I’d much rather this than…
  • I don’t think you are being a wet blanket, I think you are just correct. I’ve been playing 17, so I’m just as guilty as anyone who complains and continues to play. So far, atleast this year I haven’t gotten sucked down any player chasing traps.…
  • I’ve said this the last few years. They should make the top players right now so easy to get to suck us all in. Then make it slightly worse with primes before the legends come in and we get those odds. But instead they went even earlier with th…
  • Congrats guys, we made it 24 hours before a new Foil player with trash odds. We did it! 
  • Yep. While I don’t personally like the answer, my wallet and thumbs do. I’d mention family as well but we’ve been stuck at home for a year so I’m sure they want to get rid of me anyway. 
  • I think the changes(or lack thereof) would support our pessimistic view of what changes will come. Goes back go what I said earlier. They may throw another .1% or .2% and say look we increased odds. While that’s not a lie, they miss the entire …
  • I’ll just leave it as this. DFBB is right in that they will do what is best for them, which is to make money. This type of thing isn’t exclusive to Glu. We see this in every industry for any product. Hell, I’m trying to buy a PS5 right now and whene…
  • I have expressed my concern on numerous occasions with them, with a lot of different people. Nothing changed so I left the chat. I don’t know how many times you can scream the same thing and get no where. The fact is they know if they have a sl…
  • I’m fairly certain they were 1%. They were bad then, and even worse now. Last year though, at this time, I don’t remember have new boxes everyday and the new rally event which requires more bonus players if you actually want to play.  I agree y…
  • I actually like that but for now it’s worthless until they roll it out more, which I hope they do. I just can’t fathom the idea of chasing these low level BXP players who have all time great odds. I mean honestly, a big portion of our conversat…
  • I have no problem spending. If you enjoy the game, by all means do what you want with your money. The problem is, the return in the investment is garbage now. I had issues with ATg odds being .2% and .5%, now these odds with a 300 max bxp player? I …
  • Maybe we are finally just accepting the fact they will do this? I tried to fight hard at VIP council for increased odds and better guarantee when opening boxes but based on the looks of how 20 went after VIP council and how 21 is rolling out th…
  • They did this last year. Foil bxp guys I think we’re 1% last year but bonus was only for that event. Now they are .5% but are bonus for a week. We all knew this was coming. The getting all the players for a reasonable amount was never going to hold …
  • In my opinion no. 5 stars are very rare so you could drop several hundred if not thousands and not see another one. Also, the game now has 5 star players with skills so a regular 5 star isn’t worth much anymore. I’d wait a while before I started doi…
  • For whatever this is worth I didn’t test this but I’m playing the same teams I was at a 105k diamond team I was at 119k, I’m just winning more now because my starter only goes 6 IP and my bullpen mostly shuts down the rest. I also score more ru…
  • He has been good. I have his skills almost to pxp and he is 2nd in BA behind my other keeper Snow. Low levels will have really bad BA and if you haven’t invested In skills much he will likely be sub par. Just how it works with keepers and the game e…
  • This is probably the thing I am most looking forward too. I’m going to try and new approach this season and having something like this will help. It’s different from the monotony of just tapping aimlessly for BG. I hope this catches n and get expand…
  • They said it was over $100 in value. Can I trade it back for the cash or swap it for this actual $100 item?
  • For whatever it’s worth, I was dead set on keeping Morgan until I got Davey. I ended up keeping Davey and Snow(as well as 2 pitchers). Snow was a good option to replace Morgan. Initially I was going to keep Morgan and chipper but Davey changed every…
  • Just gonna say again. Wait until we know 20 is dead before you choose Keepers. 
  • There won’t be Monday boxes, atleast I doubt it. Just a total guess but I think they may have had players ready for Monday in case 21 wasn’t ready. I’d take this as 21 is full go Monday. Happened last year too with an NL central box that had Do…
  • I don’t know your style of play which Impacts it. If you plan to go diamond quickly I’d bring Gagne. But I also agree a lefty bat is important so Williams should be a keeper.  I would not keep Hornsby other than being a premium position HH skil…
  • I mean, this can be said for almost every aspect right now though. Every week is the same. Part of why I have high hopes for the pitching lab. Probably the most interesting part of 21, and hope it gets expanded. 
  • I think as it’s currently set up yes. But if they put it in a woh format and you won something it would be fun. I mean imagine how boring woh mode would be if it was just 1 batter vs a computer every time. I think they are testing it so people …
  • I’m the opposite. Actually really like it. It did take me a while to get used to it but once you have it down it’s pretty fun. I’d probably agree a full day event for it wouldn’t be great, but maybe part of a multi event etc. I think it provide…
  • Club rally tickets. No idea what it does or how it works. 
  • There will be additional awards given in 21. I warn you not to expect anything like this with the 21 gift. 
  • Yeah I’m not saying vips should pull the players at a higher clip(although hey I’m not against that), I’m just saying they should get more than what is currently being given too them. Again. In the grand scheme what’s an extra 10-15 boxes a mon…
  • I think this is one of my biggest takeaways this year. VIP gifts really seemed to be lacking this year. Maybe it’s just me. They gave an ok amount of XP but it was the boxes that really seemed to be lacking. It was almost always 5 of the expens…
  • Im assuming we hit all tiers with no problem, probably by a good amount so maybe a little extra juice in the gifts? I think in general it’s a great gift, but will be bad for people who don’t pull anyone from the 12+ boxes we are getting. There’s a m…
