Diamond Dynasty - 2nd Half Heroes Gary Sheffield, Mini Seasons Updated

Coming off the Ranked Seasons update last night, we get our usual Headliners pack today and the first update to the newest mode Mini Seasons. Let’s chat about Headliners Set 10 2nd Half Heroes Gary Sheffield then jump into the Mini Seasons update.

Headliners Set 10 – 2nd Half Heroes Gary Sheffield

Sheffield comes to the plate with maxed out contact vs. LHP and power over 100 as well. His stats against RHP are perfectly solid as well, and he has 92 vision to tie it together. In general, Sheffield’s swing is generally the X factor with him. There are not a ton of 2nd Half Heroes cards as of yet, but there are a lot of good outfielders already battling for spots, so it’s one of those things where his swing path and how he lines up at the plate will be important. In other words, he’s going to be someone you need to try out in order to really know if he’s good or not.

Here are his ratings:

Headliners Set 10 - 2nd Half Heroes Gary Sheffield

The odds on Headliners packs to pull a diamond are 1:10 (as always), albeit that diamond might not be 2nd Half Heroes Gary Sheffield. In addition, this year you can buy one pack of the Headliners choice pack, which gives you 1:3 odds of pulling a 90+ overall diamond (and of course costs more stubs).

Mini Seasons May Update

It’s hard to say the Mini Seasons update isn’t somewhat disappointing in that we don’t get a new player to chase here. I do wonder if some of the technical issues still plaguing the mode for some users (wins not counting being a major one) played into the decision to not really add a ton here for now. That said, here are the new missions and goals that were added.

  • You’re A Machine
    • In a single season, get on base 30 times
    • 1,500 XP, The Show pack
  • It’s Hero Time
    • In a single season, drive in 30 runs with 2nd Half Heroes
    • 3,000 XP, Prospect choice pack
  • Rookies, Breakout Ballers & Crafty Veterans
    • In a single season, strike out 50 batters with Rookie, Breakout, or Veteran series pitchers
    • 3,000 XP, The Show packs (x5)
  • Is This Luck?
    • In a single season, beat all 7 different teams
    • 3,000 stubs, 4,000 XP, Headliners Set 7 pack
  • Just A Little Warm Up
    • Finish the regular season in at least third place
    • 1,500 stubs, 3,000 XP, The Show pack
  • Bonus: Runner, Runner, Runner
    • In a single season, tally 20 stolen bases while playing on All-Star difficulty or higher
    • 2,500 stubs, 3,000 XP, Ballin’ Is A Habit pack
  • Bonus: Fast Track To The Hall
    • In a single season, win 10 games while playing on Hall of Fame difficulty or higher
    • 2,500 stubs, 3,000 XP, Ballin’ Is A Habit pack
  • Mystery Mission
    • Should have stretched first
      • Appears to be get caught stealing 10 times in a season
    • Bronze mystery pack
  • Mystery Mission
    • Maybe I should try a new bat?
    • Diamond mystery choice pack

It seems like the Longoria card from Season 1 was also removed, but the repeatable missions that existed at the start remain in place. All in all, Mini Seasons remains a smart addition to DD, but fixing the bugs people are experiencing probably remains the first priority before making the rewards stronger season to season.

    The 2nd Half Heroes mission is so lame, considering almost all of them so far are collection or competition rewards.

    I mean, Sandberg and Sheffield are headliners. Bay/Cal are very cheap BR rewards.
    It's an RBI a game (which you could do with one player)....and frankly, it's only for 3000 XP and not obligatory for completion of the mini season.
    I don't think it's that big a deal.

    The only second half hero going for less than 30k is Soriano (inconveniently the only one I have). Justice is the only one you can get for free.
    It’s not a big deal but it’s still lame. (And the prospect pack you get for it would be genuinely nice to have!)
