Monday I beat Ohtani twice with Altuve. Yesterday I could only manage 4 runs once. I got dominated with same matchup and I had actually increase Altuve’s “Late Innings” skill by 5% since then. I went righty v righty since Ohtani has LH skill. That worked well on Monday.
Is Weds Royale tougher than Monday? I’ve heard rumors as such and also the time of the day may even seem to matter (later in the evening is easier I’ve heard).
Also ive heard to never swing first pitch on level 5.10.
Any of you master cyclers out there have tips? I had a 313 hitting Altuve with 15% Late skill and I got the 20% batting boost yet he looked like a chump Weds.
if if I go diamond does WOH get harder?
As far as Mondays vs Wednesdays, I haven't noticed a difference. I cycle more on Wednesdays, but that's because I don't slow play and I spend on Wednesdays.
I take it you're platinum? I'm surprised that your Altuve had that much trouble with Ohtani. Be sure to max your team upgrades for hitting and get those pennants up too. Can you show your bats?
I don't think those pitcher skills matter at all. For instance, we know that Signature Sale is 485 max, right? He's rated about what a 485 max would be at level 3 of my tier. So essentially what that tells me is that those pitcher skills are set to zero (no boost). Those pitcher skills in WOH are nothing more than just pretty little icons.
If I could only get back the amount of time I spent trying to beat Beuhler with a right handed batter before switching to a lefty...
That pitcher vs L or vs R skill is misleading in WOH because you're still better off using an opposite-handed hitter.
I forgot to mention that I always swing at the first fastball/change up is it's down the middle of the plate.
So those pitcher skills are worthless in WOH.
For me, Monday was hard, Wednesday was easier with apples appearing to be apples. My matchups for 5.8 and 5.9 both days were really easy and 5.10 not so much.
One interesting loop......I used video boosts on 5.9 four times (once Monday, three times Wednesday) which resulted in good sequences for 5.9 and 5.10, predictable enough that the fourth time I vid restarted at 5.9 I knew from the first pitch I was on the same sequence and I'd beat it. Anyway, don't shy away from using your free video restart on 5.9; was the key for me several times.
As for pitches, I never swing at first pitch. Might just be me but it’s a timing thing, especially against guys like Ohtani that have that pitch that speeds up
