Anyone else happy they didn't grind a lifetime for all the immortals and what's your team?

I made WS every season with no immortals and my current team is almost as good as an all immortal squad now. I only played 10 games this season so not yet in WS again...here's my batting order and the rest! I wanna see yours

LF- Ted Williams

CF- CAP.. who is a right fielder, he kills it out there because of the equipment

RF- Luis Gonzalez 

3B- Joey Bats 

1B- Giambi Athletics diamond

SS- Ernie Banks

C- Kyle Schwarber Tc

2b- Jose Ramirez LS

P- Immortal Feller, TC Guidry, Finest Bauer, Ohtani FS, Harvey. I also mix in Buehler FS, Diamond Felix, Mike Scott, Degrom LS, Edinson Volquez gold card when I'm feeling risky

Bench Gary Sanchez,  Shawn Green TC, Raul Mondesi TC, JD Martinez LS, Josh Donaldson and sometimes I'll throw in killebrew for Josh

Main Bullpen guys I do best with because we all got prob 15 plus guys we mix in or more

Andrew Miller

Chapman LS

Wagner phillies card

Broxton

Sutter

Leclerc POM

O'Day gold card...

Honorable Mention: Axford and Betances

I don't grind immortals.  Just don't have the time or will to play 100's of hours vs. the CPU on Rookie.   I don't play RS though.  Only events.  I hope next year they make the best cards harder to obtain and more rare.  Although then half the people on here would complain that they can't easily get every card.

Got my first offline immortal in Chipper Jones but honestly I probably hit better with Eddie Mathews at third.  I basically got Chipper without even realizing it.  I got Schmidt a while ago because he seemed like the best shortstop option and over time finished his program just by playing RS and realized that was a big part of getting Chipper done so I decided to go after Chipper.  I couldnt imagine doing that for all the immortals.  Even what I did for Chipper made me want to kill myself.

After last night, I'm three cards (iSeaver, iEckersley, iTrout) away from my end game line-up goal:

 

RF Ichiro (favorite player of the 2000s)

2B Altuve 

CF iGriffey

1B The Babe

C iYogi

SS Schmidt

LF Snider (until I get iTrout)

3B Boggs (favorite player growing up)

 

Bench

C Bench

OF Snider

IF/OF iBrett

IF/OF Trea Turner

1B Thomas

 

SP

iRyan

iSeaver (should have next week after I finish buying apparel)

FS Ohtani (picked up last night on sale)

Sutton

Gibson

 

RP

O'Day (love pitching with this card)

McGee (to be replaced with iEckersley)

Nen

Hoffman

Fingers

iWagner

 

Playing only offline gives me the ability to enjoy some of the players with less power (Ichiro, Altuve, Boggs) but that are some of my all time favorites. Also, you never know if Ichiro will be in the game after this year due to retirement so his 93 card was one of the "must haves" I was after. Had to wait quite a while for the price to come down but was able to scoop one up last month finally and love the way he sprays the ball all over the field. Can't wait for the Postseason program to come out to get those last two cards.

Sweet unique lineups guys, since I’m officially never making World Series because I can’t hit a lick..I think I’m going to Bench some immortals going forward and have a little fun with other players

Interesting when you check out your in game profile the highest it says you’ve been is 849, and 812 last season, Something doesn’t add up

Happy for you... with that said I will continue to grind for Immortals... I'm pretty sure if I go through my inventory and/or mental rolodex my team is pretty freaking stacked as well without Immortals outside of Tom Seaver and George Brett... I'm real close on some others but not all that willing to pull the trigger on some of these exchanges as far as buying a bunch of souvenirs off the market as of right now and/or emptying the souvenir cupboard doing exchanges... kind of want to finish Frank Thomas, Zack Greinke, Johnny Bench and Duke Snider arcs as well as relievers Nen and Fingers before deciding what to do about the exchanges... not looking to good at the moment on finishing more Team Epics but paying the CPU teams to get the Finest Flashback should help me get all those games out of the way and I guess I'll go from there.

"I don't have time for the 100s of hour to grind for immortals. I hope next year they make the best cards harder to obtain."

 

They already are plenty hard to obtain. So hard that you didn't want to spend the time getting them.

 

But anybody should be able to obtain all cards. That is my biggest problem with the most recent editions: the immortals that only the top 1% of players can get and the Finest that require you to either get lucky or have millions of stubs.

I just gotta finish up those Future Stars to get iBrett over at the Hot Corner. He'll be my first Immortal. Will also probably get iYogi from the TC once I get to Diamond level.

I'm probably in the minority, but I disagree that every card should be obtainable.  I like when there are very rare cards.  It adds to the uniqueness of the lineups and the competitveness of online play.   Who cares if someone can beat the CPU 30-0 on rookie 400x's.  Why should that feat unlock anything?
