Why does the NBALM season peak so early?

For me, Season 2 peaked around the time of the Fire and Ice promo through to the New Year promo, and Season 3 peaked from Halloween through to Lunar New Year. Part of this may be because it's more exciting to see the first 90 OVR cards than platinums but I also think it's because for two seasons running they have dropped the ball with the All-Star promo and the playoffs promos. With regard to the latter, some of the early round promos in S2 were good but the overall playoff concept was weak compared to S1. I also think the lack of a major Summer program like Summer Courts has been a factor.

In my mind, whatever occurs from now until the reset is not that interesting compared to seeing how S4 pans out. Maybe that's intentional. Anyone got a different take?
 
Hopefully we get some well thought out post season content. Legends for me is dead, so is flashbacks. As Stewie said in another thread they seem to be pushing campaign's only while ignoring programs. If they gave us a variety of programs and sets like an international program, off season movers, revamped flashbacks with higher ovr's, etc. Then that may help. The current repetitive structure of campaign's I feel like also lends to fatigue. I feel like we've been grinding for points for far too long, they need to mix it up.

Copy paste promos has been the worst thing to happen to season 3 .. really liked the grind ability of this season but it has been boring ..
The biggest mistake they made this year acc to me was changing the rewards of showdown.. with the promos being so stamina intensive and showdown having so bad rewards it took away a lot from the season.
 
Well, they just made this offseason more important with the expansion draft, so...

Also Halloween was a meh promo for me. Got all the players but they were mediocre cards at best. I remember people playing SD for Masked Kyrie, and then 15 days later Harvest Curry was so much better.

Christmas was a letdown from season 2.

I'm enjoying this playoffs promos more than anything before Lunar New Year.
 
I’m really hoping that all of the copy paste promos is a result of putting resources on s4. Feels to me like they sacrificed this season once the point promos started. I know wishful thinking...but what else do we have with EA?!

In Madden Mobile or H2H is free, I don't think that's the solution but I have to pick and choose when you spam Showdown. Either when I complete a promo or when I am taking a promo off, there isn't enough stamina to go around.

Halloween had a more creative campaign map, better card art, a nice slow reveal on the locked portions of the map and a one day boost to the cards that was a better feature than any promo has had since. It even had an additional elevate card for kicks. Kyrie may have been quickly obsolete but that was the only meaningful Showdown season we’ve had all season.

The only positive I can think of from the recent playoffs promos is that you could grind the POTG cards.

We’ll have to wait and see if the off-season campaign is any good.

There was talk of Showdown being free or using its own form of currency but nothing game of it.
 
I forgot to add that Halloween was the last time when the AH played a proper part in a promo, but of course the promo didn’t make EA as much money as they expected so they nixed using the AH in promos.

I can see how it could affect the games economy if SD didn't require stamina. But since rewards have been crap all season...... It should've been changed. It's a BASKETBALL GAME. There should be some mode where we can play all day long if we want without any requirements. As it is, you run out of stamina...... And you have to turn off your device & come back later. That's such poor design.

I still remember Brian being so proud of himself that he had come up with new stuff to breathe life into SD and it's been worthless ever since. The jerseys could've been a great idea but like a lot of other things.... they can't seem to figure out how to run with it and it dies a slow death.
