  • Lauren82599 posted a comment on DEBATE: Vladimir Guerreo vs. Derek Jeter

    Vlad was the better power hitter. Jeter was much better at getting on base because Vlad never walked. Both had meh range in the field but both had very strong arms.

    I'd rate them evenly in terms of quality but I'll give Jeter an edge for longevity.

    Actually the obp goes to Vlad, .379 to .377. I think the real question is which one you would rather have on your team. I value offense over defense, so for me my pick would be Vlad. In his prime he is the one that everyone wanted, being an elite hitter at the plate.

    Thank you thank you thank you for getting rid of the worst thing the show has ever done, now if only the cap could be out of DD.

    Never going to happen. They get rid of the cap and equipment becomes largely useless, and there is money to be made from equipment for SDS.

    Wow. Sweet card, can't wait to see his stats. I've still got some baseball game for the Sega system, and he was definitely the most feared hitter (Bonds was there too, but lefties were easy to get out) being capable of going deep at any time.

    Why is that wrong? The TC was never meant to reward us with every single player.  Rather, it's meant to even the playing field between the big spenders and big grinders by giving the big grinders the ability to supplement their team with a few key players for free.  Just like any other marketplace, you have to budget wisely.

    I'd like to think it's possible that if you put enough time in the game, that you could have every card. I'm a little ocd that way.

    I disagree with this, after the last TC entry I still had a shitload of tickets left and I probably got 85-90% of the cards in the TC.

    But I agree the TC could have been better and the way the rotation of players worked was lacking.

    I don't know. I completed all programs and career missions, and still don't have enough. Could be I didn't play a lot of rs (no more than I really needed too, as it seemed like I was always having to grind to complete something), and it's possible those are the tickets I needed.

    Tickets were MUCH harder to come by in 16 and those cards you refer to were locked behind specific captains that had to be leveled up to 50. If anything, the TC last year heavily favored the grinders and top tier players over the casuals far more than 17.  This year, basically everyone had enough tickets to buy Beltran, Donaldson, and Pedroia and still had so many tickets leftover they didn’t know what to do with them.

    Plus, recall that they basically gave Teddy away for free at the end of the year which pissed off a lot of people who spent a ton of time and tickets buying him through the TC earlier in the year.

    There aren't enough tickets if you want to own everyone in the game. It doesn't matter how much I grind, I'll never have enough tickets to buy everyone which is just wrong. The market can be worked to obtain those players, but it doesn't matter what I do towards earning tickets as I will never have enough.

    Done them all. Did Paxton a long time ago as I feel he was the only worthwhile one, but did the rest for completion sake.

    im new to the show so excuse my dumbness, you can still play 17 but not online is that correct? when 18 comes out?

    Comment by jmcdonald1817 2/13/2018 8:12AM
    You can still play online for a couple of years or so; whenever they decide to turn the servers off for 17.

    Did you really just tell someone that played 1,000 GAMES they should have played more?! No phrase could have possibly summed up the problem better. What is the required dedication to receive enjoyment? 2,000 games? 8 hours a day average? Total unquestioned loyalty and submission? I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone say that 1,000 games played in any video game ever just wasn’t enough of a commitment. 

    That is a SERIOUS time commitment, unless some people are working with more than 24 hours a day and I don’t know about it. So, basically, the moral of the story is that if you aren’t willing to dedicate the majority of your life to MLB The Show then you are unworthy of many cards. You are arguing with people that have put a ton of time into this game and are still playing in February. It’s not like these are people that have played 50 games and are upset they don’t have the best cards.

    Playing 1000 games, completing all the my career missions and programs, still isn't going to give you enough stubs to buy a lineup of the best players in the game and probably not enough to finish out the LS.

    Stop focusing on the number of games played. There are only three ways to obtain the best team. Be really good (go 12-0 a number of times and make ws on a regular basis), spend real money, or work the market. Playing a s**t ton of games isn't a fourth; it only allows you to complete all missions and programs.

    No. Why in the world would anyone play this atrocity when 18 comes out? The servers should be removed from 17 as soon as 18 drops so they can use them as a backup server for 18 as a fail safe.

    The only reason I would play it is for Beltran. I really hope they get a deal worked out with him soon.
