  • I guess they made it easier but I still can't cycle.  My guys are completely overmatched by 5.4, even 5.1 is not an automatic autoplay.

 I had one guy last week, he beat me like three times in a row.  The 4th time, I was really far ahead when i finished--but he quit and I won nothing.  Seemed pretty clear he was a sore loser.  To Glu's credit, they did refund me my …
  • If WOH is pushing us to gold already, I am guessing Glu is serious about everyone having to go Diamond this year.  I can't imagine they will let us stay gold for a full calendar year.

  • I don't know but I'm having the same problem.  I face almost exclusively 5 star, capped silver pitchers.  Makes every game tough and not conducive to hitter bonus points. 
  • I'm going to give Glu the benefit of the doubt for once and say their servers are overwhelmed. I am going minutes between available videos.  That can't be intentional.   
  • I still think cycling is only realistic for gold teams.  I'm sure the top silver teams can do it, especially if willing to spend a lot of gold, but to me it's still not worth it.  Watching my guys nub grounders to second base or popping out to shall…
  • All I know is I faced you four times in a row last week, @DFBB, and you ate my lunch! I lost one match by 1 foot and gave up :)

 I think it's always tough at the beginning of the year when players don't have skills and have low max potentials.  There's just not enough separation between our hitters and the pitchers.  Plus, most of us are bronze or silver, wh…

  • It gets harder and harder to suffer through these no-prime, no-legend months every year.  Pure boredom. No incentive to spend saved up gold, let alone real money.

 This is good advice.  I could keep Cabrera, Bench or Lansford (all double LHP, 600 guys) to pair with Brett, but I'm thinking about taking Yogi (RHP, Runners On) and Brett instead.  Maybe even Ruth, whose Runners On skills play aga…

  • For those who've been around WOH long enough, we've seen the "over-powered" problem.  You would logically think that a super-powered player with another 80g boost would be better, but that's almost never the case.  I bet if you attempted t…
  • My experience was weird yesterday.  Cycled three times easily -- no restarts other than the video restart, 40g boosts on 6.9 and 6.10, and sometimes no boost at all.  Then my fourth cycle, I could not get through Babe even with the video restart, …

Yeah, it's actually surprising how bad the double LHP skill is in all game modes aside from WOH.  I have Albies and Evans with those skills and they're batting averages are almost 100 points lower than comparable players on my roste…

I attempted Babe three times, lost to him 6-3, 6-0, and then beat him 7-6 with only one out.  All 40g boost. So between us, video boost was 2-2, 80g boost was 0-3, and 40g boost was 1-3.  Conclusion?  Don't waste gold on boosts, I …
    in WOH 3/2 Comment by Metsicans March 2
  • My best potential keepers are all lefty bats (Ruth, Gehrig, Yogi, Mickey (switch), Shawn Green), so I’m actually toying with making ML someone who crushes lefties. The emergence of Babe as the 6.10 guy reminds me that having a lefty killer is import…

 All ATGs should require BXP in 2020.  But the way Glu gets you is that the amount of BXP is super high (tough to acquire early in the game) and the cost of skill upgrades is ridiculous.  But that goes for all keepers, including ATG…

 Doesn't the new game come out 3/16?  If you jump next week you will only have two weeks of missed WOHs, then you can start 2020.  What is the diamond welcome gift? Maybe it's not even worth it. 
  • (Quote) 
 Right, that's what i understood too. 
  • I don't know the answer for sure, but I plan to go platinum and then hopefully diamond in the next two weeks, just in case.  I always understood the carryover gift to be better for diamond players.

 I don't want to whine about it, but the truth is every year they make the game a little less user friendly.  They've done it gradually to keep us all hooked, but every update I worry that they're going to push me out of the game en…
  • No way am I spending $100 at this point in the season, much less for a low chance at an ATG.  But the better question is...is Mariano now going to be the new 6.10 pitcher in HOF?
  • Tried for my first cycle and Gold Evans, skills at 17/17, with 40g boost, got skunked 5 - 0.  Tried again 30 minutes later, video boost only, and Evans sailed through Babe like nothing.  Not even a restart. Which is to say, I have no idea what's go…
  • I gave it a couple shots before fan rewards (on the theory that boxes are kinder before fan rewards), but no dice.  I'll try it again later.

 Spent some money and magically the boxes will be kind to you again.
  • I’ve heard it activates after you score 4 points, which is one homer, or two doubles, etc.  Even if it only activates after 4 runs, it will be active for any serious CVC round. 4 runs is one time through the batting order, or less.

 As luck would have it, immediately after my post, I pulled this guy: (Image)
  • Out of curiosity, has anyone ever pulled a bonus player for an upcoming event from a #1 pick or a First Round Pick?  I know the odds are low.  Just wondering.
  • Even though I know it's premature to talk keepers, for the reasons @DFBB mentioned, I still find myself debating between Yogi, Gehrig, Hornsby and Green.  Very tough call because the best options are probably Lou and Yogi, but they're both lefties. …
  • Weird experience for me yesterday.  On my first attempt, sailed to 6.10, lost twice to Babe with G10 Kiner, 16/16 skills.  Tried again 30 minutes later and beat Babe first time, no restart.  Second and third cycles, beat him first time, no problem. …
  • I'll be there after cool down and will definitely give you about 10-15M in points. Thanks!
