I don’t see them bumping players once 2021 is out.

    My hunch is that there is a bump this weekend to 610 and a final bump on the last weekend before TSB21 is released worldwide (3/12-3/14).  This would make business sense for Glu so that we all have to spend just a little extra to chase those elite 625 keepers, which may be better than the ATGs (think Cruz and Brett from last year).  Does anyone recall the sequence of events from the end of TSB19 - i.e. dates that the final bump to 600 happened, that TSB20 was released, etc?

    Seeing as how 600 ovr keepers are at ~565 right now, I would imagine two bumps are on the horizon. I wouldn't be surprised if 21 dropped immediately after the final bump as @SandlotGuru is suggesting.

    really depends on when the next game is being released.   If its in a few weeks then one more bump makes sense.   Ifs not till last week of march or first week of april I see probably two more bumps

    Very possible as keepers are at x0.94, and 640 x 0.94 = 601 (round down to 600, the current max rating).

    It was publicly announced that TSB21 will be released worldwide on Monday March 15th - so we've got to back up from there.  My assumption is that on that day TSB20 dies off.  I lived in Canada last year - can someone else confirm that this is what happened last year?

    So will VIP gifts come this Friday or next Friday on March 5th?
  • Grizzly99Grizzly99 New Member Registered Users, Member 249 Posts
    I would think if the worldwide release is on March 15 the beta test version should be any day now 
  • MattattackMattattack New Member Registered Users 1,892 Posts
    If March 15th is the date, id guess just one more boost

    They bump every 3 weeks. I just don't see them releasing 2021 on March 15th and having a last bump on 2020 on March 19th with only 4 625 players + ATGs. 

    From Friday, we will have 3 weeks to enjoy our 610s and season should end on March14th. 
    We are all beta testers

    Is March 15 confirmed release date? The messaging I’ve seen says register by that date, not necessarily releasing that date. Historically the new game has arrived very close to opening day.

    Looking back at last year - the 600 max players were first issued on Wednesday 2/26 (Davey Johnson) and the last set of boxes were issued on Monday 3/16 (Ernie Banks).  Just speculation, but I agree with the OP that if this year plays out like last, that we should get our final bump tomorrow.

    Thanks to @WackGoneLoco for your incredible record keeping!

    It's their target date, but an official release date won't be announced because things don't always go accordingly.

    Pssh, give me one example of a time something Glu has done that hasn't gone accordingly...

    2020 dropped on a Tuesday March 17th I think 21 will drop Tuesday March 16th... 🤷🏻‍♂️
    Ready for a fresh build and once again the silver life

    Bench is showing 610 in Collections already.
  • mythicaldragonmythicaldragon Registered Users, Member 2,207 Posts
    Yes....totally been waiting all year for legend Chris Hoiles to be released.. dude had like 150 home runs and over 700 hits in his career.. beast 💪🏻

  • ToughthundercatsToughthundercats New Member Registered Users, Member 1,898 Posts
    Definitely not a MLB legend but definitely an Oriole legend for sure.

    He was so amazing and well known that they needed to release a second version of him.
    Still giving glu money?  That's the problem.  They'll never change if you don't.

    And guys like me had to google him to see who he was
  • sullipa8sullipa8 Registered Users, Member 465 Posts
    While he may not be an overall legend of baseball, he is one of 13 players in MLB history to hit 2 grand slams in one game. Thousands of players have played in the MLB, but only 13 have been able to do that. So yes, it’s fun to laugh that GLU would consider Hoiles a Legend, but that feat itself was legendary.

    Thanks for sharing that link. I remember watching that game with my dad.
  • 2003cobra2003cobra Registered Users, Member 2,512 Posts
    I can guarantee that the other 12 aren’t legends but thanks for sharing. It is a definitely great accomplishment. I didn’t read that far into his bio

    How about the only man to hit 2 Grand Slams in one inning? Mr. Fernando Tatis, Sr.

    I guess 1 Fernando Tatis is all Glu can handle. Seriously, have they had a Sr and Jr together in the game? No Ken Griffey Jr, no Vlad Guerrero Sr, no Fernando Tatis Sr.

    Thanks for the shoutout 🙂 I was working on one for ‘20 but then glu showed their dominance over me with the resources I didn’t have so I stopped charting the players... one thing I wish I kept tract still was each player’s release date. Maybe glu will steal that idea from me eventually too with no recognition I put a ton of effort making those player charts in ‘18
    and ‘19.... 😜

    Wouldn’t those make some nice sets. The Molina trio, Ripken brothers , bonds duo or any other family combo would be cool
