Monthly Awards, Roster Update, and Ranked Season Warehouse

Carlos Carrasco (Diamond, 96 OVR SP) headlines the seven new Flashbacks making their Diamond Dynasty debut in the September Monthly Awards series. He was among the league leaders in ERA, WHIP, Wins and Strikeouts in September, while helping the Indians secure a spot in the Postseason.

Carrasco can only be acquired by completing his Player Epic Mission chain.

  • Carlos Carrasco I – Defeat the Cleveland Indians on All-Star Difficulty or higher in a Play VS CPU game
  • Carlos Carrasco II – Tally pitching and hitting stats based on the September performances of the Monthly Award Flashbacks, including Carlos Carrasco and J.D. Martinez
  • Carlos Carrasco III - Collect all six Monthly Awards players to unlock Carlos Carrasco’s Flashback player item.

Five of the Monthly Awards Series player items can be found in the Bases Loaded Pack:

There are a limited number of Bases Loaded packs available (20,000), which means it can sell out in the Show Shop, and it is limited to two packs per person.

Each Bases Loaded pack guarantees one of the five Monthly Awards Flashbacks listed above along with 3 other player cards. The cost of the Bases Loaded pack is 15,000 Stubs and the player items can be sold on the Community Market.

The sixth and final September Monthly Awards Flashback needed in the Collection appears in the Ticket Counter. Monthly Awards Flashback Jake Odorizzi (Diamond, 90 OVR SP) will be in the Gold XP Level Zero slot and costs 1,800 Tickets.

FINAL REGULAR SEASON ROSTER UPDATE

In the final regular season Roster Update, there’s a new Diamond starting pitcher along with 30 upgrades or downgrades.

Watch the video to see the biggest movers and discuss the changes on the community forums. More highlights can be found in the Roster Update page here.


WILD CARD RECAP MISSIONS

If you want to relive the success of the Diamondbacks and Yankees in the Wild Card games, then look for two new Missions in the Events category.

In the Diamondbacks Wild Card Recap Mission (pictured above), you have to hit four triples with Arizona players while playing in the Division Series Event. That’s the only place the triples will count, but you don’t have to hit all four triples in one game. You can take as many games as needed to earn one Postseason Pack that guarantees a Gold or Diamond Postseason player item.

In the Yankees Wild Card Recap Mission, pitch 8 innings, record a hold and a win with relief or closing pitchers – just like the Yankees did in their stellar Wild Card win. Again, you don’t have to complete this Mission in one game, but you can try!

Legends, Flashbacks and Live Series player items can be used to complete either Mission during the Division Series Event, which lasts until next Friday, Oct. 13.
