I 100% guarantee you that I was the last person you thought was making this thread.
The hype for free cards heading into the season was pretty huge after Full Throttle. Free, great dark matters like Steve Nash and George Mikan dropped and the community hype was real. Hell we even got Opal Quantum Luka for free week 1 of that season.
So far, the rewards have been unusable pieces of shit. Trae Young is literally his opal with slight boosts in irrelevant categories alongside no badge upgrades. All of the Rewind Opal rewards have been depressingly terrible. Plus, we have had no free agenda cards not tied in to Rewind yet.
This is a pathetic, money-hungry move by 2K which is essentially forcing players to spend money to keep up with the god squads of Invincible cards, which will only get stronger by tomorrow’s crazy incoming drop.
So for a guy who’s been extremely positive about the game, I’m at a loss for words with how disappointed I am in 2K over the past week. We better get a good free DM for this Game of Rings bullshit (which oh by the way Zion has now fallen to 3rd. Good job idiots!!!) because I won’t even redeem the code for a Gold QFS/Clamps card in fucking mid-June. Fix your shit 2K.
