    My app updated and I have noticed that the "melding" of base cards was overhauled. What are your initial thoughts and impressions of Bunt 18?

    PS: With the 'free' packs timer thingy I doubt I'll be buying packs of base cards and instead I'll wait on insert packs to start arriving tomorrow.

    I guess my original impression is overwhelmed...will be able to provide more thoughts as the season goes on, but right now, itís just overwhelmed

    lol, agreed, overwhelming is what I'm thinking also but initial impressions--being what they are--is all we've got at this time. I do wish they'd picked a new player in the icon for the app but whatever. I'll be reading those in app news articles for a while...

    EDIT: My onboarding welcome pack was pretty good: Harper, Rosario, Donaldson, Blackmon, Chapman and Freeman. Hope that's a sign of good pulls to come!

    Ok having a day to mess with it my early impression is that all of the changes Topps made to the app have to do with getting the user to spend as much TIME on the app as humanly possible (and spend diamonds). The countdown to free packs timer (+ notifications) and card fusion seem to be gimmicks geared to make the user open the app again and again. It would seem that melding is being hosed by fusion and the jury is still out on the contests.

    I agree that the app has been redesigned to keep you hooked for as long as possible.

    I don't know yet if I like the Fusion idea better than melding. Five cards in exchange for one random of the higher parallel will mean more trading I think. And why have you wait 5 minutes to see what card your Fusion yielded, other than the obvious opportunity to get users to spend diamonds (a.k.a. real money). I still have no clue what "Fusion Rewards Refresh" and "Active Fusion" on the home screen do.

    I do like the new design though.

    I'm sure most people have realized this already, but the first few XP levels are relatively close together (a few hundred points apart). You have the weekend to meld your 2017 Series 2 cards and get level award cards, which also refills your tickets. Use up the tickets for Batter Up or Prize Wheel, meld some more, and repeat.

    I reckon I'm not "most people" so to this amounts to a big head up for me thanks! I wasn't planning on melding anymore 2017 cards since they aren't usable in contests but my prize wheel does have a shiny 25K gold coin card which I wouldn't mind having more tickets/spins at before it disappears in 6 hours. (even though I still don't know how to use the coin cards lol)
