ENTER THE EVENT
All Events are free to enter.
BUILD YOUR LINEUP
Events have their own dedicated lineup, but you only can use player items from your Inventory.
Players from the Yankees, Twins, Diamondbacks and Rockies are eligible to enter the Wild Card Event. The player items can be Live Series, Legends and Flashbacks. Your team overall is 99 OVR, so build your best teams possible!
Don’t forget, you can filter the Community Market on TheShowNation.com by each team.
The Wild Card Event consists of only 3-inning games.
The reward system is similar to Battle Royale in Diamond Dynasty where you collect rewards as you pass win milestones.
WINS PER ENTRY REWARDS
If you win 3, 6, 9 or 12 games before double elimination, you can earn one of these rewards in a single Event entry:
- 3 WINS PER ENTRY: Silver Live Series Player
- 6 WINS PER ENTRY: Low Gold Live Series Player
- 9 WINS PER ENTRY: High Gold Live Series Player
- 12 WINS PER ENTRY: Low Diamond Live Series Player (90-93 OVR)
Q: Do I have to win 12 games-in-a-row without losing to get these rewards?
A: No. Similar to Battle Royale, you can earn the 12-win reward even if you lose once during the entry. Your record would be 12-1. Your wins per entry only resets after losing twice.
Q: If I win 12 games in the same Event entry, do I collect all of the 3, 6, 9 and 12-win rewards?
CUMULATIVE WINS REWARDS
You can earn these rewards for piling up wins while the Event is open:
5 WINS CUMULATIVE: 1 Standard Pack
10 WINS CUMULATIVE: Gold Live Series Player
15 WINS CUMULATIVE: 10 Standard Pack Bundle
20 WINS CUMULATIVE: 1 Postseason Pack (Guaranteed Gold or Diamond Postseason player)
Two losses eliminates your current lineup entry from the Event, but you can re-enter for free right away with any lineup that meets the Event requirements. The benefit of double elimination is the opportunity to rebuild your team if you want to swap out players.
Q: If I lose two games and my current lineup is eliminated from the Event, does it reset my Cumulative Wins?
A: No, the Cumulative Wins will continue to track until the end of the Event.

POSTSEASON EVENTS UPDATE
One update we want to pass along about the Postseason Events is that we relaxed the team overall restrictions. For all Postseason Events, it will be 99 OVR, which means you essentially have no restrictions to build the best possible Event lineup out of the eligible player pool.
Each player pool will be determined by the current MLB Postseason round. For example in the Wild Card round, players from the Yankees, Twins, Diamondbacks and Rockies are the only ones allowed to add to your Event lineup.
If you receive an error that says you don’t have enough players to enter the Event, please try to build your 25-man roster in your My Squad screen. It may help identify where you have positions to fill. You need a C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF, plus 5 hitters on your bench. On the pitching side, you need 5 starters and 7 relievers (Relief or Closing pitchers) in your bullpen.
