  • Eh, nevermind. 
  • Looks like the gift was meant to include 15k blue cash, but included 15k gold instead. I think the "fix" was them taking it back.
  • The only skill I've leveled is my legend's one skill, but it appears to be active when it should be (it lights up, and his ratings reflect the boost). I haven't leveled the skills on my keepers yet, and they have not been lighting up when they "would" be active. My initial observations: * The CVC to inbox thing is cool. I…
  • 
Excuse me, but I believe you're forgetting about the 15 all star tickets.
  • That’s true. I could drop Bench and make ML a switch hitting catcher with vRHP and 1st pitch. 
  • 
Honestly, it’s perfect. Outsmarted by daylight savings time on the last day.
  • 
I’m sure they won’t get any complaints about that. 
  • After some good advice on here, I had settled on Chipper, Bench, and Williams as my keeper hitters. Now, with Davey, someone has to go. Anyone have any sage advice? Catcher and 3B seemed to be challenges for me this year (OF very much was not a challenge), but Williams is the only pure lefty. I don't plan on rushing to…
  • 
I think they’re looking at the wrong one. The 580 Davey from a while back was in an NL East box (or at least in collections, he has NL East graphics).
  • If anyone has any thoughts or criticisms, I would certainly appreciate it. Pulling Morgan or Davey Johnson this weekend could change things, but I'm assuming that won't happen, since I've spent all of my gold. Near locks: * Verlander (my only 610 SP) * Bench * Chipper On the short list for the final spot: * Gagne (my only…
  • Has anybody played enough in 2021 to determine if the platoon split is as pronounced as it was in 20?
  • I can just about promise they’ll go to 625. I know this, because I pulled Gagne today. 
  • 
100%. I’ve got several ATG hitters that would make fine keepers. I’ve got that recent 610 Verlander that’ll work if 610 is the final max. I would probably rather take 2 pitchers and 2 hitters, and Gagne would be good, unless they go to 625. If i knew 610 were going to be it, I would likely throw everything I had at…
  • On those keepers, maybe I'm missing something, but: A B1 rating of 130 would imply a max overall rating of around 475, yes? That's way high for a keeper starting out.
  • I expect you're right, but Lou Gehrig was a LHB who spent 16 years (plus 8 games in his final year) with the Yankees and was the subject of Pride of the Yankees.
  • 
I probably cycled the choices 25-30 times. Scioscia wasn't the only legend I saw - I don't remember the other, but whichever one it was, he wasn't nearly as good as Scioscia.
  • Didn't screenshot them, but the best things I saw when playing around were: * Scioscia legend (520 max, I think) for 970k-ish * Mega Prime Power Up Box for 32k * Legend XP box for 32k
  • 
You can change the batting order, but so far as I can tell, you have one batting order that applies to all lineups. You can't have your 1B hit first in one lineup and fourth in another. 
  • Thanks. I just assumed they would keep the POTW/POTM structure going, similar to how they did the POTW guys before baseball was actually being played. I may still wait until after this week, just to be sure, but if they're not going to do them, my gold and BXP that I had earmarked for POTM can be put to other uses.
  • That's about the easiest thing in the world to make right, so I'm sure they'll ignore it. I'm not really all that amazed by or interested in the incompetence - incompetence is everywhere and is mostly easy to understand. But I continue to be fascinated by the fact that they won't do the easy things. When a remedy costs…
  • 
Once you've reached the pity timer. Until you hit the pity timer, the boxes functioned just like a normal box, and the TOT boxes weren't on the menu. If you hit the pity timer 30 times and never pulled a TOT box, that would be something. But I'm not sure that bit about 50% was written well. I think you got either a…
  • I never got anything, but I assume it looked something like this: 🖕 CS said they wouldn’t refund my franchise coins, but they helpfully suggested that I keep an eye out for a global gift, since sometimes they give out gifts after fixing a bug. Im hoping the delay is because someone, somewhere recognized this as a textbook…
  • Lol. Of course. 
  • 
Yeah. This is a pretty straightforward case of advertising a reward and then not delivering. I would have stopped at 10 million, if not for that legend draft pick reward. Spent a bunch of franchise coins chasing 10th place. 
  • That prize was a big, fat nothing. 
  • Before primes came out, there was a double blowout Jonathan Davis that was really terrific. The real life Jonathan Davis was a 26 year old rookie in 2018, didn’t make the active roster for 2020, and has a .524 OPS in 122 career plate appearances.
  • I love the harder bash. More challenging, and it doesn’t take forever to play.
  • @TheFullMonte I don’t keep data on it, so feel free to discount my perceived observations as you wish, but I have long felt that I consistently experience what you are describing. A crazy curve out round where I had no chance, then a video restart, then an absolute mashing on the order of 7 runs on 7 batters and done. 
  • Last bump was from 342 to 372 (or a .05 bump on the keeper factor), and it was almost exactly one month ago. They've got to get the keeper factor from where it is now at .62 to 1.00 between now and when? November? If they bump them once a month, that's four more bumps, including (we hope) one that comes this week. I think…

  • It’s basically just the trade in value. Check what a player at each level trades in for, and you’ll be able to calculate the multiplier. For primes, it is 20x, 30x, 40x, 50x, and 60x current overall for bronze, silver...thru diamond. The multiplier for bxp players is slightly lower. I don’t remember it for certain off the…
