Just entered my codes. On one code a message popped up saying "You have unlocked a Blue Wave pack" then it disappeared. Anyone had the same issue. If you have unlocked a blue wave pack where do you see that you have done so?

Hoping I didn't get screwed here.

They either don't have the feature up yet or what, but you should be getting one. Should be able to request delivery sometime in January, wouldn't be surprised if its sooner with pressure on Topps. I unlocked one myself also.

Thanks I appreciate it. I find it hard to believe they don't have an area where you can see what you have unlocked. Thanks again.

They said they will be adding features as they go, would assume one of them will be the "winning inventory" they talk about in the message when you win the pack.

Try using google chrome or firefox to access it.
I have now entered 85 codes. I have all 85 players showing as me owning them. They will be there for the whole season.
I have also now unlocked 4 blue wave packs. 2 in my first 75 codes, and 2 in the last 10.
The site does have issues, and Topps screwed up not ironing them out first, but they will get things figured out.
I also talked to a Topps customer service rep, and for whatever you want to take from it, they said the codes are the only way to unlock prizes. And that each product will have different prizes to unlock.

Did the rep mention if you will be able to combine shipping on your four packs?

what's the math on 1:48 AJax? I thought it was ~160,000 codes total given 6,000-8,000 cases. Wouldn't that be 1:16ish for the 10,000 packs? Wonder how many packs there truly are.

Yea I just looked back and finally found my post, indeed the odds SHOULD be around 1:17 This is what I posted before, assuming only 2 codes per box, but not accounting for the ones they will be sending out. Might have meant 1:48 as a possibility if they stretched out the blue wave packs over all 3 releases.

I did the math yesterday. The codes are falling 2:1 in Hobby and 4:1 in Jumbo. Assuming 6000 cases for Hobby and 800 Cases for Jumbo, The odds are REALLY bad to get Blue Wave packs.

6000 Hobby Cases * 12 Boxes per case * 2 Codes Per box = 144,000 Codes

800 Jumbo Cases * 8 Boxes per case * 4 Codes per box = 25,600 Codes

Assuming that there are going to be 10,000 packs, just like the other two promotions, that means 169,600 Packs:10,000 packs. Which means roughly a 1:17 chance of getting a Blue Wave pack.

If this is true, maybe they aren't making 10,000 packs? Or the odds aren't 1:100? Or some will be given away in promotions?

Also doesn't take into account the codes in Bowman Sterling, and if they unlock Bowman Draft blue wave packs. Either way, there is a huge difference between 1:17 and 1:100, it's gotta be somewhere in the middle.

I've tried safari, firefox, chrome, and IE all are a no go. I think they hired web devs from the Appalachians.

I was having the same issue, then I went and checked my email and realized I never "confirmed" my account by clicking in the email.

I would check that first.

It's along the lines of when you call a computer tech 1-800 number, IS YOU COMPUTER PLUGGED IN?

So I emailed them yesterday when I couldn't find a confirmation of my blue wave pack. Here's what I just got in response:

"Hi,

We're currently rolling out the full feature set of the game, and ironing out all cross-browser compatibilities. All of the issues being reported by some users with Registration, Unlock, Winnings, and Code Entry will be resolved shortly, and are already prioritized within our system. We apologize for any confusion this has caused.

Thank you for the early sign-up, and for your feedback. I'll check back in on this ticket to make sure if everything is working well for you in the coming days.

If you want to interact with other users, make suggestions, provide feedback, or ask questions, we'd love to hear from you at: bowmangame.uservoice.com."

I entered 1 code this morning to try it out. It said I unlocked 1 player, and now it is nowhere to be found. When I go to my roster, it says "you don't have any players on your team".

Did I just waste a code?

I can't believe they wouldn't plan ahead, and get this stuff worked out prior to release....it blows my mind.

You got Brad Miller on your team, I think. I did the opposite, selecting Shelby Miller's name that had a picture of Brad Miller's card. I checked my team roster, which is just a list without pictures, and it showed Shelby's name, team, info, etc.
