Dedicated players had been asking for well over a month for SDS to release new career arcs. Competitive lineups stayed very similar between top players for all of June, simply because there were not enough good cards on the market or obtainable through programs.

In a Twitch broadcast Wednesday, SDS took a fire hose to those critics, releasing all 12 career arc programs necessary to complete the immortal programs available since launch.

Below is a look at Frank Thomas, Mike Schmidt and Duke Snider. These photos were captured from the SDS broadcast.

Most importantly, SDS made sure that even though all 12 arcs were dropped simultaneously, they wouldn’t be easy to complete. These career arcs are exponentially more tedious and complex to complete. On the plus side, jerseys and hats are not the only souvenirs used. All souvenirs can be exchanged in the new programs to complete the arcs.

A new roster update is also available. Keep in mind, this is an update for transactions and position changes which does not contain attribute modifications.

SDS also released a small patch earlier this week. Patch 1.12 aims to fix a few minor bugs and crashes. You can read more about it here.
