Double Diamond Roster Update and Double Legends Pack
More than 25 players were updated in this week’s Roster Update. It includes two new Diamond players, Giancarlo Stanton and Charlie Blackmon, who appeared in this summer’s Home Run Derby. Watch the video for the biggest movers, and you can discuss the full roster update here.
TICKET COUNTER UPDATE
The Monthly Awards Flashbacks that once appeared in the Ticket Counter have returned!
The April, May and June Flashbacks of Mitch Haniger, Lance McCullers and Gary Sanchez will stay in the Ticket Counter in a special slot for the foreseeable future. The Ticket prices for all three of those player items are also reduced.
The July Flashback, Felipe Rivero, will continue to have his own dedicated slot for the remainder of the month and then will transition into that group slot to make room for the August Monthly Awards Flashback.
TICKET COUNTER – KEN GRIFFEY JR. ITEMS
Both of the Ken Griffey Jr. player items (Rookie and Impact Veteran) have been combined into a single slot that rotates every hour. They will stay in the Ticket Counter and are needed to complete the Diamond Program to earn the 99 OVR Hardware Legend of The Kid.
TICKET COUNTER – NEW FLASHBACKS
There are three new additions to the Ticket Counter this week and we plan to add more next week:
- Impact Veteran Flashback Brian Dozier (Diamond, 92 OVR 2B)
- Rookie Flashback Masahiro Tanaka (Gold, 89 OVR SP)
- Hardware Flashback Jose Abreu (Gold, 89 OVR 1B)
DOUBLE LEGENDS – BASES LOADED PACK
The Bases Loaded Pack has reloaded in the Show Shop with the August 11th pack. Each pack contains 4 player items, including TWO guaranteed Legend player items, plus an increased chance to find Diamond and Gold players.
Cost: 10,000 stubs
Limit: Three packs per person
Expires: Friday, August 18th at 2:45 p.m. ET / 11:45 a.m. PT
Q: Will you add new Missions and rewards to Conquest mode?
A: Yes, we are targeting early next week for a big drop of Conquest content and a former MVP reward. The best way you can prepare for these new missions is to finish the current Conquest missions (Conquer and Command Missions). You don't have to beat Conquest multiple times, just once and then complete those Missions. If you no longer have the rewards from earlier Conquest Missions, it will not impact your ability to complete the new Missions.
Q: Are the Mystery Programs going to be announced soon?
A: We plan to reveal those Programs next week too, and we can’t wait to tell you about the new Flashback Series that comes with it.
Q: When will we receive the Ranked Season Stripes rewards?
A: The current Ranked Season ends Monday, Aug. 14, at 11:59 p.m. PT. On Tuesday, we will send out the rewards.
Remember, you will receive rewards based on the highest division you reach, not where you end the season. There will be a screen you must pass through in the game to receive the rewards, and then you can open your packs through your Inventory. Stubs, XP and Tickets will be automatically added to your account. Once all rewards have been distributed, we will kick off the next Ranked Season with another 99 overall player reward for the World Series division, plus a couple of surprises.
Q: Will there be a Roster Update next week?
A: Since we have so much other content to deliver next week, there will not be upgrades or downgrades on Friday. Look for the Roster Update to return on Friday, Aug. 25.
