So I figured I'd buy another 50 bundle. Opened all of them and outside of a couple gold equipment not one gold player and obviously no diamond players while a few of my friends who have been buying 10 packs have a couple diamond players. Is it just me or are the odds for the 50 bundle worse. Or are odds of diamond and even golds lower this year
Agree I bought the $99.99 pre order digital deluxe and ended up with what I consider far less than the $200 value they claim with this bundle. To make it worse I bought the 50 pack bundle and the 5 flashback bundle. So out out of the 90 plus packs Gerrit Cole was my best player and Diamond Leg Guards catchers gear was my best equipment pull. I guess it's a total crap shoot. I did get some Rookies and decent flashbacks but nothing earth shattering. I'm just glad the servers are better.

It takes a month or two. SDS pre-order deals have flooded the market with cards and stubs, plus the streamers are spending money on packs like crazy to further dilute the market. You'll want to keep checking but realistically things will be settlted down around mid-May as some players become diamonds and others fall back being golds. Guys like Harper who are 90 diamonds could easily be 89 golds if they get off to a slow start and 89 guys like David Price could easily be Diamonds with a strong first month.

Alright sounds good , I'm 3 and 4 short respectively from completing the Yankees and the Nats 40 mans .

My other question is , when the season stats and inside edge becomes effective , how long does it usually take for cards to see upgrades or downgrades ? Weekly?

Pretty sure its daily.

Got bored at work and bought a pack online, pulled Osuna, Longoria and Daniel Murphy. Haven't pulled a gold or above player in the other 120-ish packs I've opened between pre-order and selling crap guys to get stubs back. Should've taken a screenshot.

My first few set of 50s was nice. Got a Jansen, Britton, and FB D. Wright.

Since then, absolute garbage.

I think the system is great, if everyone got gold and diamonds semi regularly DD would be dumb. It's only been out for couple days relax, they can't flood the market place so everyone and their grandma has mike trout. It's suppose to be extremely difficult to get those cards

Re: Don't buy 50 pack bundles...

I'll probably buy a 50 pack just for the fun of it. I never go in expecting a huge pull, I do it more for the thrill of it, just as I used to do with real packs when I was a kid.
I'll just wait to see if the servers behave this weekend. It's not a lot of money, helps the developers, and it helps me fill out collections quicker.
