So, the Griffey Program Looks Impossible

Just saw the Griffey program on Reddit (not sure if its ok to post the link) and it looks impossible for those of us who aren't great at this game or able to play a bunch online. Specifically getting 4 hits (including 1 hr) in a single ranked seasons game and getting 8hr in 8 or less BR games. Not to mention you have to collect all the Jr's in the game and all of Jr's equipment (which I bet will be pricey). Looks like I will just have the silver Jr for the year.

Re: So, the Griffey Program Looks Impossible

make friends with someone willing to let you get those hits
also, if all of them are easy, is it really worth accomplishing?

The rest of them aren't easy, but they are doable for those of us that don't have endless amounts of time to play online (family+job make me getting in more than a game or so a night h2h almost impossible). And the way people play, getting the 4 hits+hr is gonna be tough without getting quit on or mercy ruling. The BR one especially looks dumb. Forces people to play BR and getting 8 HR in 8 games is likely out of the question for most players. For the length of time the rest of the missions would take, putting something like that in is absurd.

Hopefully not a sign of things to come as far as those long missions go. If they all involve playing online a lot then that would be hugely disappointing

Watch, the first game you play online someone will have diamond Griffey already

But I do see the dilemma. If you have to get 4 hits and a home run in a H2H game, people are going to quit just to troll you if you're getting close.

Most Mission stats cannot be tallied in "Unranked" or "Play With Friends" game types unless specifically from those categories.

That's actually funny (and sadly very likely), even without the normal quits you are likely to have if you have 3 hits with any player. Also, the BR one may be much harder than people think (even without taking into consideration people like me who don't hit homers), as you get tons of quits in BR.
