Diamond Dynasty: Moonshot Program and Event Includes Four Legends

The content overload continues today in Diamond Dynasty with another stacked slate of cards and updates. The new Moonshot Program and Event is a slight twist on Other Programs with some of the missions, and then we get Headliners Set 48 Finest Trevor Hoffman, fresh Topps Now cards, and some more XP for the Legends of the Franchise Program.

Moonshot Event

Moonshot Program Event

The big thing with this Moonshot Event is you get points for the Moonshot Program with every win, and then you’ll also be getting four Rewind packs with enough wins as well. There are no new players in the event itself. You do not need to play the event at all in order to unlock all the rewards in the Moonshot Program, but looking at the points breakdowns of the program, I would say snagging some event wins might end up being easier than doing some of the home run missions.

  • Any hitters
  • Common pitchers
  • 3-inning games
  • All-Star difficulty
  • Free entries (as always)

  • Finest Billy Williams
  • Milestone Harmon Killebrew
  • Finest Troy Glaus
  • Finest Gary Sheffield

Holy Gary Sheffield. All these players are bringing the power, but Sheffield as the final reward and with the stats he has is rather impressive. The big thing with him is 70 fielding is probably more than he could ever possibly deserve, and you can get 80+ speed with him at P5 so he’s really way more complete than you could expect any Gary Sheffield to really be. Beyond Sheffield, I always love the maxed power Killebrew cards, and Troy Glaus was a favorite for many earlier this year. I’ve never clicked with a Billy Williams card, but he has a nice looking stat line as well. All in all, a nice win in terms of rewards.

Headliners Set 48 Finest Trevor Hoffman

Headliners Set 48 Finest Trevor Hoffman

With Finest Trevor Hoffman, you’re basically getting the Takashi Okazaki version with some bumps to H/9, K/9, BB/9, plus better all-around control of his pitches. I was a big fan of the Okazaki version, so I’m for this version, but you’re not getting anything different to change your mind here if you’re set in your ways with your thoughts about him. He is going to be the exact same pitcher he was earlier this year, so either you want the upgraded version or you do not.

The Headliners Set 47 Finest J.R. Richard is also worth mentioning here since that was released this week. That card has been really impressing me when I’ve seen it, so he might be worth a shot in your rotation.

Bottom Line

Carrying on the strong streak MLB The Show has had these last couple weeks on the content front, the Moonshot Program should be another hit overall. People usually love doing the Moonshot Event (at least compared to other events), though I’m generally in the minority and don’t really like it all that much. However, even if you’re getting blasted in the event, it’s probably worth doing some games because you’ll still hit some home runs and get some missions out of the way.

Both Headliners cards this week are worth scoping out, but I think only J.R. Richard is worth a second look if your mind is already made up about Hoffman. That J.R. Richard feels like a tangible upgrade, while I would suspect the Hoffman card is very much comparable to the Takashi Okazaki version.

Lastly, be sure to note all these Moonshot reward players can also be collected for XP in the Legends of the Franchise Program.
