Diamond Dynasty Update: Two All-Star Programs Added

For the first time this season, we’ve seen two Programs added to Diamond Dynasty on the same day. They are the All-Star Ryne Sandberg and All-Star Felix Hernandez Programs. The final prize for each is an All-Star Ryne Sandberg (99 overall) that mashes righties and is a solid fielder, and an All-Star Felix Hernandez (98) that dominates overall. The missions for these programs can be completed offline or online.

For the Ryne Sandberg Program, the difficult missions will be amassing 675 plate appearances with All-Star Series players (including other associated stats), and exchanging 99,000 points of Live series second basemen — at least in the short term as prices are already up as of today. Some might also have difficulty amassing 3 hits, 1 run, 1 double and 1 RBI in the same game with the Bronze Ryne Sandberg that unlocks when you’ve completed 50 percent of the missions.

For the Felix Hernandez Program, the difficult mission will be amassing 236 innings pitched with All-Star Series starting pitchers (including other associated stats). In addition, if you don’t have him already, the Live Series Felix Hernandez that you need to collect has already gone from roughly 6,500 Stubs to now 23,000 Stubs. Presumably the cost of his Live Series card will come back down a bit in time, but in the short term that’s quite a jump up in price. Some also might not have five All-Star starting pitchers to use right now in order to efficiently complete the innings pitched.

To help with these missions, the Ticket Counter has also been given an update. All-Star Adrian Gonzalez (92) was added to the Ticket Counter today, as well as All-Star Jackie Bradley Jr. (86) — you need to be Gold Level 50 and have the Tickets to buy these. Other new player items that will be showing up in the Ticket Counter in the coming days include All-Star Ben Zobrist (97), All-Star Sean Doolittle (92), All-Star Ervin Santana (88), and All-Star Devin Mesoraco (87).

Lastly, Set 7 is now in the Cards Store, with the exclusive items being an All-Star Bert Blyleven (99) and All-Star Jose Reyes (96).

You can find pictures of some of the new cards, as well as a couple of the major missions, in the gallery below.

    Haha my bad, think I had KRod on the brain since he was just on the waiver wire in real life.
    These are going to take a really, really long time. 30 doubles with 2nd baseman is giving me Buddy Bell flashbacks, while the 236 IP is Oswalt all over again but with Michael Wacha playing the role of Francisco Liriano. It's also a crazy high amount of 2nd baseman you need to trade in to get 95,000 points worth, especially as there just aren't very many of them

    Trevor Cahill? I'm in the same boat except I have Saberhgen as well, luckily there's a Santana been added to store, it just isn't available today. I can see that being picked up by everyone as there just aren't many All Star starting pitchers. Annoyingly relievers don't count as they've fixed that glitch, shame as Billy Wagner must have pitched 40 innings of my IV progam and picked up a lot of strikeouts in RS games. So I have a ton of great All Star relievers and they don't work towards anything.

    Beating the Mariners on All-Star has been an absolute pain in the ***.

    Took me 3 tries, but I got 'em. Cano has a knack of killing anything I put near the zone.
    As for the Doubles challenge, this game hates me. I played at Polo Grounds, Forbes Field, Red Rock Stadium, Wagonman Stadium, and that one Barnes stadium. every single hit has been a single or homerun. Even Dee Gordon hit a moonshot!

    I thought it would be a nightmare, but I've actually got 29 in a day and I'm essentially done. I play at Tigers stadium when I want doubles or triples as you get the doubles down the line, you get easy doubles on anything in the gap and you also get a few doubles one linedrives over the outfielders that hit high up on the wall.
    I hated beating the Marines though, they are my second bogey team after the Toronto Blue Jays, who for the past two years have smashed endless homeruns off me even on rookie. My biggest problem was that leadoff git, Jarrod Dyson. Constantly gets scruffy infield singles, steals second and then gets driven in by Nelson Cruz. Took me 3 attempts to beat them and I swear he scored 2 runs in all three games.

    Question when collecting 25 flashback starting pitchers for the the Felix Hernandez program do all the cards have to be different or can you buy doubles of the same card and use them.

    different, otherwise everyone would just stock up on Trevor Cahill
