    I have no intention to download TSB 2015. I understand the "new" factor, to see if the game has anything different. However, once downloaded and played, it sends the message to GLU that the launch has been successful. I agree, avoid the new version like the plague.

    You all got that right. Not a chance Unless changes are made and teams can be transferred.

    So far 2015 is full of nerfs and bugs, anyways.

    I really don't think you guys want them updating the 2014 app this way. I can pretty much guarantee these changes would happen:

    - the 200 gold tourney becomes 650

    - the 450 gold tourney becomes 800

    - you lose access to the 650 gold tourney if you level to legends

    - the 35k tourney becomes 40k

    - you can't hold more than 120 inactives. After that, they start deleting your worst quality inactives

    - games will disappear and reappear at random (this already happens to an extent in 2014)

    - the number of division wins per division could increase

    Basically, Glu REALLY wants certain things nerfed, and if the new app fails, I would expect that some, if not all of those nerfs, could make their way into an updated 2014 app.

    So if you are sending emails to them, include your desire not to be nerfed.

    well prepare to hate the game a little more. New update just hit! (2015)

    edit: fan award tiers are a joke (albert pujos 16000 gold, buster posey 30000 gold, other stuff along the way are draft picks and boosts etc..

    nerfed cash rewards for tourneys..on some i saw

    still more to explore..but not impressed at all atm
    looks like GLU is getting greedy to get us to reach into our pockets...honestly this may turn off ppl that were ok with switchin to the new game.

    also..ugly mug to stare at on load screens lol

    Saw a screenshot that you can pay gold to "give your team a boost" for the game. Don't like that.
  • ~Lawman~~Lawman~ Experienced Member Registered Users 370 Posts
    Here are some screenshots for TSB 2015, and a video of game play.

    I really have to thank glu for doing this update really.....

    I can now go back to my real life and not worry about this game. this "nerf" greed or whatever you call it.... i have no problem walking away. I am going back to the original version and play it til it dies. who ever was in charge at glu for this project... (beta try weird things) ya....duh.. you really turned off some ppl, just too much.

    only thing i was kind of happy about were the 3 pack free agent update.

    f this game...(2015)

    long live original tap baseball

    I agree with you puno. As long as this version lasts I will play. 2015 version does not have my support.
  • ~Lawman~~Lawman~ Experienced Member Registered Users 370 Posts
    In solidarity there is strength. If you prefer this version of TSB, send a message to GLU by not adopting the 2015 game. If everything that was earned is transferable, then a reevaluation might be in order.

    Puno, thanks for sharing your opinion, I believe it represents the consensus. The "changes" made to the 2015 version could have been implemented in this platform. There were so many good ideas presented on this forum to enhance game play of TSB, unfortunately for us it fell on deaf ears.

    Amused, it goes without saying, I will not support TSB 2015.

    I actually don't mind if cash rewards on tourneys was nerfed. It was kind of sick that the leaderboard could be dominated by Rookie accounts doing cheap tourneys, while I could struggle to get into the top 100 and I am working on beating Legends playoffs at the moment.

    Same for the nerf on Prime game wins, they were generating way too much money for noobie accounts.

    On the positive side, less games are disappearing.

    to add to the tourny nerf.

    300 gold for 3 star tourny and you get 2000 cash per win.

    If gold isn't more readily available, that is an ABSOLUTE joke.
  • tbattitbatti Experienced Member Registered Users 433 Posts
    Agreed. That is crazy. Easier not to play if you can't move forward.

    Is this available in the US store now? Or still only in the Canadian store?

    It costs nearly 20 dollars to buy a #1 draft. GLU is insane.
  • gregadamsgregadams Experienced Member Registered Users 298 Posts
    Where are you seeing all this? If I go to the store everything costs the same as it does in 2014 TSB.

    Well new update! 30 inactive limit hehe... Sigh

    After making it to Greatest of All Time (GOAT), I lost interest in the game. The highest level needs 200 games to get to the playoffs instead of 75, and it is the same team as 2014 Legends playoffs anyways.

    Being the only GOAT at the moment, in order to progress I need to beat the Legends playoff team (IE Legends 2014 team with 8 upgrades instead of 9) 200 times to get to the old Legends playoffs....

    I open the app, see 1 win out of 200, and turn it off and do something else.

    Are you actually able to set your own lineup in the new version?

    If things cost less people will buy more. As an example,If you made $5 buy 10,000 gold more people will buy and they would make more on pure volume. If you charge $100 for 10,000 gold I'll never buy it.

    Lower the costs and people will spend more money. Make the costs ridiculously high and people will simply not pay for a game on your phone when you can play Play station for less money.

    If only that were true.... you realize that there are VERY affluent people that spend a LOT of money on micro transaction games. No matter the price, they will buy what they need to win, so the sky is almost the limit in terms of setting the cost.

    Micro-transactions have killed gaming.
  • ScottyCameronScottyCameron Experienced Member Registered Users 188 Posts
    True, they will get more people to spend money, but then the game itself will suffer! You would have all teams essentially the same. Everyone would have all 5* players and all upgrades.

    $20 for a #1 pick is fine as long as it's a TRUE #1 pick and not some 3.5* dud. As is stands now you stand only a 2.5% chance at a 5 star for 225/300 gold.
  • ScottyCameronScottyCameron Experienced Member Registered Users 188 Posts
    That is stupid! Downloaded the "new" app and input my email from 2014 and I have a whole new team! Nothing carried over! Pfft... Back to 2014 version! Lmao

    Correct. Eventually they will try to either persuade, or force, people to use 2015 over 2014, and when they do, they want people to pay...
