  • Jeff McNeil (88 overall)
  • Ian Happ (88 overall)
  • Joey Gallo (86 overall)

  1. My math might be wrong, but from the looks of it you can’t complete the Snell player program unless you do the collection of all players.
    Everything else just adds up to 90 points. Clearly something going to be added to get the extra 10?

    Yeah I dunno, but your math is correct in that it comes up short of 100 points. I would assume they'll add a little more, otherwise they just want you to collect all the players no matter what and the other stuff is supposed to be the way you get the rest of the way to 100.
    Swear they don't test this stuff at all, the last one didn't add up either and they had to add an extra mission afterwards. Either that or they have just disguised a money grab as an actual mission by making you collect them all, as well as do the moments
    Fiddy
    They want us to collect the other 4 would cost around 75k at the moment to finish it off. Lol. No thanks.

    The suspicious part of me thinks they'll let a few whales pay the 75k then add more missions and pretend it was an accident that it didn't add up at first.

    I don't understand the Gallo card. Why would they add a card that's not as good as his FOTF card already in the game?

    Same with Lux.
    Most likely most players won’t earn the FOTF Gallo or even got event wins for the 90 Lux.
    So you have free cheaper options?

    Probably because a lot of people don't want to mess with FOTF and this card is insanely easy to get.

    The Gallo card is just live Gallo with +5 for his hitting stats, then the FotF card is Live Gallo with +10 for his hitting stats. It's some pretty lazy stuff tbh

    Yea that's a fair point. I didn't even pay attention until after I took him in the first pack and was like well **** I should've taken Dwight Smith Jr. That card might be sneaky good. I did really well with his live series in a showdown the other day.

    What do you want them to do? Just not give Gallo a card for this event but give the rest of the Players finalists one?
    I mean their hands are pretty tied here. There is no baseball but they need to do something for content.
    It's not "lazy". They're doing the best they can considering the circumstances. This card wouldn't even exist if actual baseball was being played right now.

    There hands were tied when they made the decision to give all the finalists a card. That was a decision they didn't need to make.
    Heaven forbid, they could have instead just been creative? Literally the guys on this forum have come up with a ton of ideas, in a few minutes, without even trying. It's not that hard, the major league season usually only produces a handful of pretty meaningless cards anyway, it's not like they build the game around the POTM cards and Topps cards (that weren't even there before last year and not a single one was a meaningful card iirc)

    Sorry my man but the ideas floating around this forum are pretty horrendous and most wouldn't even be feasible. Had Gallo just bowed out early nobody would be mentioning anything. Not SDSs fault he's good at their game. Again, not lazy. Gotta get creative and sometimes it backfires a little.
    Also, if you don't like this card then don't get it. You have 3 other options.

    Just buy the Smith card. It's going for about 7,500 stubs right now.

    Already made it to the 2nd pack and took him.
    Pretty ****ty that the points don't add up. Guess they are forcing you to buy at least 3 of the cards to get Snell. Hopefully was an oversight and they'll release another moment or mission.
    Mcneil, Giolito, and Happ are almost 40k already
    Welp I got 90 points and nothing else to do but hope they release a voucher or another way to get 10 points.
    Weeeeeeeeee
    Edit -
    Also, out of all the packs I’ve got out of this stuff today, 0 diamonds. Boo.
    Now onto conquest.

    Idk, but I was thinking of ta and this was waayyyyyy easier to get lol.
    I got thriugh this fairly quick except for Gallo vs darvish... Is darvish sneaky good or did I just suck? I couldn't get the timing, most of my damage I started looking sliders low

    Darvish has a decent K/9 for a Live series rating, which works against Gallo's non-existent plate vision. Means you're going to swing and miss more often instead of foul off poorly timed or aimed swings.

    I wonder if any of the players series packs are hidden in the conquest map?

    There’s not, but there are a couple nice packs in there, I think I remember a Headliner pack(that I got A. Chapman out of) and a 2 Ballin packs along with a 5 pack of standard packs.
    I am purposely not buying cards to finish the collection right hoping they add another way to reach 100 points. Right now doing the collection and the rest of the missions gives you a total possible 130 points. Why aren’t there rewards beyond 100? Just seems odd how they set this one up. I have 70 points currently and didn’t do either of the online ones.
    The Conquest rewards for the new map are pretty solid though. I’m about halfway through it.
    Haven’t started Keith Hernandez yet.

    I have 75 points. Got 10 strikeouts with rays online... I lost but was just pitching whatever Ray I could.
    Are people keeping these players league cards or selling them? I have a few collections left... Not sure how much of these cards I'll use... I ended up with Giolito, Gallo and lux... I've played good with lux. But almost 42k stubs to do the collection to buy 3 more players.... I'd prob use snell

    Cheaper than some of the other collections and u get 95 Snell
    The Dwight Smith moment is so inexplicable. It’s the hardest on paper because you’re facing DeGrom and then they bump it up a level above all the other hitter moments. Then somehow DeGrom can’t hit the broad side of a barn
    Also struggling with Gallo just because I never hit well with him and Darvish’s cutter just teleports.

    These two and the Bichette are one I struggling with but I already have 78 points so really only thing needed is collection.
    There is just no way they don't add another way to finish this off.. I have 6 of the 8 guys and would be around what 70k to buy the other two? Woof.

    Hope they handle this on the next update/card release. How ridiculous to leave it where people may be buying these redundant cards to complete their program

    6 is all you need for the collection so if you have that you don't have to spend any more stubs.

    I must have 5 then, I didn't notice you didn't have to have them all. So then it would cost me 35k in stubs.
    I have McNeil, Gallo, Bo, Smith Jr, and Lux. I would need Giolito or Happ.
    UGH
    I struggled with the Bo mission the most so far but I have not done the Gallo and I hate total base missions. I have a feeling I will struggle due to his extremely low contact and vision.
    I still have the pitching missions to do also.

    So did you buy 2 of them? As I haven’t seen anywhere they are given free and you only can earn 3

    It wouldn’t surprise me if they included players league choice packs in future content, either as event or RS rewards or in the next inning program.

    I bought Smith Jr and Lux after selecting Gallo and Bo. Snagged them off market that evening before they jumped to 10k each.

    It's the luck of the draw sometimes as to what they give you to hit. It drives me nuts when I get a 4 pitch walk on pitches nowhere near the strike zone in these moments. I didn't have any issue with these though other than Gallo. Took me a few times around to figure out that cutter from Darvish.

    Yeah, I finished both this morning. It may just be that I had played pretty much all day yesterday and was fatigued. I felt a little lucky with Smith (wallscraping homer on a full count in the 1st, shot a double down the line opposite the shift later) but with Gallo I felt like I had finally figured out Darvish. Even the couple failures before success I actually hit well, just not 2 HRs.

    So do you guys think we will get a round 2 to get some extra points? I’m in the same boat as you. I’m now at 90 points but I’m not gonna buy a bunch of diamond players to get to 100.
    LastActionHero
    Ok they didn’t add any new ways to complete this program with the 4th inning program

    You get a quarterfinal pack during conquest and a semi final pack at 600 stars.

    You get a quarterfinal pack during conquest and a semi final pack at 600 stars.

    Still gotta lay down 70.000 or so stubs to get the rest
    Ofcourse I should’ve kept all the other player tournament players before but I thought there would definitely come a stage 2.
    Oh well my bad.
