Q: The July Monthly Awards Flashbacks are also coming out next week, right?
A: Yes, and earlier than usual! Look for the Monthly Awards players and the limited quantity Bases Loaded pack to debut on Thursday, Aug. 3, around noon PT.
Q: Will all of the trades be included in next week’s Roster Update after the MLB trade deadline ends on Monday?
A: Yes, and let’s talk about next week’s Roster Update. We are planning to include the roster moves and transactions in a Thursday (Aug. 3) Roster Update, but there won’t be attribute updates. However, it’s still possible some player overalls will change if they move positions on their new teams. You will see attribute upgrades and downgrades return in the August 11th Roster Update. Until then, Inside Edge will continue to change daily and impact player attributes.
Q: Any hints on the next Battle Royale rewards for August?
A: There will be three 99 overall players added to the Flawless rewards on Tuesday, Aug. 1. They might be among the best at their positions in all of Diamond Dynasty. Get ready.
