July’s Sorare update brought up several updates for the game’s football segment, but it also focused on giving more time to Sorare: MLB, the game’s move into the world of baseball. Announced back in May, this new collaboration brings all of Sorare’s success to Major League Baseball. Following in the footsteps of its football counterpart, this fantasy baseball game aims to replicate the success it achieved with the original release. The community update brought with it the first real update about Sorare: MLB, telling us all about how the game works and how you get to play it. Read on below to find out more!
A Sorare: MLB team must be comprised of 7 players. These seven cards must include players that play in the following positions:
- Starting Pitcher
- 1 Relief Pitcher
- 1 Corner Infielder (First baseman, third baseman, or designated hitter)
- 1 Middle Infielder (Second baseman, shortstop, or catcher)
- 1 Outfielder
- 1 Extra Hitter (Any position player)
- 1 Flex (Any position player)
Players have different aims and abilities, some generate points from pitching, others from hitting. Sorare: MLB managers must choose the position that they want players to score their points in. This will change every week, as players can only generate pitching or hitting statistics in any given game week. Managers must strategize their player deployment, as only one card can be used per game week. Similarly, each player can only be used once in the same line-up.
Competitions & Events
Each week is made up of two competition windows. One runs from Monday to Thursday, while the other covers Friday to Sunday. Every competition window is referenced as a separate game week and these start before the first game in that respective window. The game week comes to an end after the last game has concluded. After that, the scoring is finalized, and the game week’s rewards are given out.
All of the available Sorare: MLB competitions will be going live on the 19th of July 2022, launching alongside the game’s marketplace. August will see even more competitions being added to the game. These will focus on various card rarities, allowing you to make use of your recently purchased goods.
