MLB 15 The Show News Post


After giving away a free Baseball is Better Diamond Dynasty pack (valued at 15,000 stubs) for MLB 15 The Show fans last week, the team is giving away 2 free packs this week.

Simply log into Diamond Dynasty and receive one Gold Sponsor pack and one random pack (valued at 12,000 stubs) from the list below:
  • Devís Choice
  • April Topps 50
  • May Topps 50
  • June Topps 50
  • July Topps 50
  • Heavy Hitters
  • Trades and Rumors
  • All I Do Is Win
NOTE: With the reintroduction of Limited Time Equipment, the Gold Sponsor Pack may have something special.

Let us know what you grabbed in your packs.

The team has also made some improvements to the economic landscape of the marketplace, which include:
  • Reintroducing Limited Time Equipment: "Stars and Stripes" and "Camo" equipment will be back in circulation for an indefinite amount of time. We always wanted to bring it back sometime, so why not now? Lots of limited time equipment was stock piled on troll accounts that have been banned, so we need more back in circulation anyway.
  • Cap on Stub Balance and Order Amount: We are setting a Stub Balance Cap at 10 million Stubs. If you had played 24 hours a day since the game launched you still would not have even a tenth of this cap. We are also reducing anyone with over 10 million Stubs to 10 million. This will put a ceiling on the negative affect any one troll could have on the marketplace and it only affects about .01% (1% of 1%) of users. The few affected will get a super awesome package of packs. We also have placed a cap on the max transaction amount to prevent outrageous orders that have no business being on the marketplace.
  • Buy-Order Reset: In order to properly apply the Stub Balance Cap mentioned above, we have reset all Buy-Orders on the marketplace, returning posted Stubs to their owners.
  • Marketplace Caps: transactions cannot exceed 500k Stubs. This happened a few days ago.

Never played online and probably never will. But I am so glad to see this. I just want to collect the cards and equipment. I do play RTTS so having a chance at equipment that I never had a chance to get and don't want to pay 250 million for.

This is fantastic :-) Thank you so much for fixing the marketplace ! We really appreciate you responding to this issue in the manner you have too. That sort of thing goes a long way with a consumer... I know it does with me anyway.

I wonder if they read my post about putting stars and stripes equipment back in circulation. Haha I'm just kidding.

So has anybody affected by this cap received the super amount of packs? How many were there and are they limited packs?

I ask because I had over 32 million and did not receive any extra packs.

I got one of each pack. Of course, I had to pay 350 million for them.

Anyhow, I got Yogi Berra, Posey, Kershaw, Trout, Harper, a bunch of golds and camo equipment. Nice pulls, but I already have multiples of all of them.

Anyhow, there was nothing to spend the stubs on anyway. I had only two more stars and stripes items to get so, I was trying to get as many stubs as possible by selling duplicate stars and stripes. In the end, it didn't matter. Even though I got knocked down to 10 million, I completed my set for 1 million.

Works out better for me. If it stayed the way it was before, each items of stars and stripes would have cost 1 billion. So, I would have needed 2 billion to complete my set - basically something that wasn't going to happen.

So, for everyone, I think the corrections did a lot of good.

I didn't get it in my free pack but I opened up some standard packs and got a Stars and Stripes Wilson glove.

Sold for 175k

I pulled a Michael Brantley. Also the part about if you played this game for 24 hours everyday you wouldn't even have 1 million stubs. Well i am sure there are plenty of people who have earned a million stubs in this game just by flipping cards. I know i did and others on here too

Sony San Diego really has done a great job balancing their virtual currency within this game. You literally could play every game mode without ever spending a single Stub that you earn. They said in one of their blogs or Twitch streams before the game came out that they wanted the Stubs to be optional, a bonus if you will. I think they succeeded. I had managed to build a decent Diamond Dynasty team just from opening packs I earned and got from my preorder bonus. My roster was full of silver and gold players, and one Diamond (Chris Sale, who I pulled in my 10 packs from preorder bonus). Which is fine with me since I only play Diamond Dynasty casually. And I pulled some decent gold equipment and sponsors from packs also.

Nice job Sony San Diego!

i think it was more of, if you played and never played the auction house like most with a ton stubs have.

I'm chasing the elusive Giancarlo Stanton.

Most people exploited the stub glitching, it was ridiculous how much free agents were going for. All because there are those that like to exploit and/or cheat and ruin it for others

What is up with Arenado? I have gotten him in both player free packs that were rewarded to us during this market correction time.
