The End of Profitable Pack Drops

Episode 46 of TFM. May 10, 2021.

The End of Profitable Pack Drops.

It's not an easy sentence to read, but it's true. Today's Throwdowns Drop *might* mark the first time since Series 1 that the value of the moments in a pack is, on average, lower than the cost of the pack. We break down WHY this is happening, and how it might be the norm from now on in Top Shot. We also look at the week and challenges ahead. Hosted by @lgdoucet.
