Realistically the game is at the same point (or even better due to EB, sluggers, target bash, etc) than it was at this time last year. The regular boxes were terrible odds with not great players. That has always been the way of life and won't change throughout the life of the game since the truly best players are hard to obtain. HOWEVER, in previous years the best way to team-build in the early months was POTW/POTM boxes. Head and shoulders above all players for their active period and still a decent option for much of the regular season at tougher positions. Additionally, they had tremendously better odds, great XP value when not obtaining a player, and a longer shelf-life as a bonus. Implementing a player spotlight with this set-up would balance out the game and make it enjoyable for 99% of players. Blue Leopard has already acknowledged this idea in the suggestions box, but I think it is a good time to remind everyone of what the true flaw in the game is at this stage. Starting in May with a spotlight box of the month would actually give us an incentive to spend gold and participate on a daily basis.
