Regarding the auction from @vyshka, it is not necessarily a bad thing to have an auction with no buyout and a low starting price, if you know the card is very popular. Last year I accidentally listed a low diamond Hank Aaron card, not realizing it was a key card in a mission. I think the average price was around 15,000 so I started it at 10,000 thinking I would like to get 20,000 for it. Turns out it sold for something like 150,000. So that was cool!
Had some pretty good pulls last night. My Washington team ended up coming in second in two tournaments and they completed a 15 player mission for a gold pack and I also got the Twitch drops from last night.
Amongst all the cards I got a live perfect Schertzer and a historical diamond Caruthers… My first historical diamond of any kind. He goes for quite a bit in the AH, like 220,000, but I’m holding onto him for now because I’m not sure if I should sell him or not. A lot of the thinking where I hang out says these cards will be surpassed by better cards down the line but on the other hand this may be one of the best players ever get and it’s not clear that I would ever stop using it so it might be super dumb to sell them.
Then this morning, Annandale had two packs of the tournaments overnight and one of them container their first circle diamond, an OVR 91 Joe Cronin. So I’ve got a new shortstop!
I’m sure I will be pining for that Frisch card for the rest of ootp22, just like I was searching for Christy Mathewson for all of ootp19 after pulling him during the beta.
Is there a way to do an invite-only tourney? If so, we should stage a Qt3 one.
vyshka - Texarkana Tornadoes
Is that your team’s name?
Oh team. Sry. Clear Fork River Cats
- tylertoo - Levittown Librarians
- @Spock - ???
- lostcawz - Clear Fork River Cats
- vyshka - Texarkana Tornadoes
May the best group of Unsung Heroes win! (Or at least advance a round or two).
I got a historical legend diamond pull Jeff Pfeffer from one of my tournament packs the other day.
Had 2 packs waiting for me this morning, and one team in a finals. Hopefully 6 more packs waiting when I get back from thos xray.
Dang! Ive had only 1 diamond pull and maybe a half dozen golds. I think with all the twitch drops and the couple of tourneys I’d done good in Ive already opened about half the packs I did in the entire season the last time I played. Time for me to go on a lucky streak!
@Charlatan great suggestion in the ootp forums of selling dups through the tournament team. I hadn’t thought of that, but I dont think it has bit me yet.
What is this idea?
His idea for someone having some roster trouble was to sell their duplicates while in the tournament interface, because the way rosters are handled separately between the main team and tournaments if you do it in the main team interface it might sell the guy right off your active tournament roster instead of the one that isn’t because they would both likely be inactive on the main team.
Ah, that makes sense.
The fact that the Auctions and sales have to be done within either the Perfect Team mode or the tourney mode is vexxing and not ideal.
My tourney team is the Boston Red Sox - OL. I’m thinking of changing my team name to something more colorful. Much as I love the Red Sox, I sorta envy all your charming team names. At least my team has started to win some games; we’re in 3rd place in our division now, albeit 20 games under .500 lol.
I’m not sure I follow the discussion about auctions. I typically just back out of a tournament to buy what I need, then jump back into the tournament, then re-import my PT roster, then fashion a lineup and export it for future use.
Also, I’ve never pulled a diamond from a pack, except for the two guaranteed diamonds I got in my diamond packs for loyalty! And I’ve been getting Twitch drops, opening mission packs, etc. Sigh.
Finally, I’ve got a duplicate 88 Trea Turner live card. Should I hold on to both in the hopes they become diamond at some point? Sell one now?
Crashed out in the first round of the snapshot tourney 1-3.
The Unsung Heroes tournament filled up before I could get in. :(
Oh, wow. Well there’ll be more.
This guy on my Perfect Team squad (88 rating) netted me 2000 pp with this no-hitter.
The various themed tournaments take way to long to fill. I think I’ll go back to my normal bronze level 32 person events. I’ve stopped winning them but I get into enough 2/3/4 places to keep the cars rolling. I signed up for the 128 team bronze daily tournament. It has taken one of my three slots for almost 20 hours now. It will be great if I win but it seems likely that I could have had between 2 and 10 standard packs in that same time.
I drew and auctioned a 99 live pitcher. 8k PP is nice and I wasn’t going to use him but it still feels a little bit like I hurt my team. Especially since I’m sitting on the points for now waiting to see if and when the silver prices go down before I jump into filling the complete team missions.
