Just my $.02...
I have over 100 codes left. I'll be entering about 20 of them approximately once a month.

He won't - the earliest he'll make his ML debut will be in May, IMO.

What happens after you do 20 codes? Do you get to choose who to drop or does the person on the bottom of your list get removed? My roster thing still has a lag between them showing up on my roster after I select them... but when I entered my 21st code I didn't get to pick who to drop, it just removed the player on the bottom

Entered 30 codes. No Blue Waves, got a decent lineup, and may enter some later, but not sure. If the codes reach 2.00 a piece I'll probably sell what I have left.

This is what I'm wondering as well, unless maybe that's what makes this challenging

If you have him in your lineup does he get deleted or only if they were on your bench?

Even though it sounds like a waste, I might have to enter some codes tonight.

Well figured I would enter 4 more codes, on the 3rd one, it told gave me the "Congrats you have unlocked a blue wave pack" message (with some HTML code around it, which tells me they haven't gotten it right yet). Guess I will be waiting till January and hoping that it went into my account haha.

So I think I caught something... I was finally able to unlock a pack and part of the HTML code said something to the extent of 100 code giveaway. My assumption from that is the packs are 1:100 (ouch). If anyone is able to get a screenshot of the text post it, mine disappeared after 10-15 seconds

Didn't catch it on mine either. Can't refresh the page either, as it makes it disappear. Wouldn't be surprised if its really 1:100, that would have been the correct odds if codes were seeded as advertised.

So apparantly there is no limit to the roster size? I just logged back in for the first time since this morning and I have 22 players on my roster (even more strange is that I only entered 21 codes).

Can anyone else confirm they have over 20 players on their roster and they are still all on the team?

Just logged back in, and my roster has gone from 20 to 32 players.

Works for me.
