To those willing to offer help/advice I would greatly appreciate it as I feel that I am essentially "stuck" in the game.
I have been playing for a little over a month, around 300 games, with a win percentage around .600 and I am currently at the All-Star level. My team is compromised of 3* to 4* players with my best player (and only one above 4*) being Francisco Rodriguez (8/6/8, Closer). Although I have more the game says I have 34 inactives to trade for a 1st round pick.
My problem is that I don't want to spend real money on the game, don't have the time to grind through prime events or watch videos everyday, and don't want to hack/cheat. I am struggling to win the prizes from leagues, occasionally I will finish 2nd/3rd, and can seemingly never win the Green Ring tournaments. My players stats are beginning to lower and my win percentage against the AI is lowering as well.
Does anyone have suggestions how to get out of this rut? Is there a certain draft with the best odds to pick up new/better players (seems like my luck is not good)? Did I rank up too high too quickly and am flat out screwed?
I've just recently found this forum and am getting mixed advice about when the time to level up is and how the AI reacts to leveling up so any help or clarification on any of this would be greatly appreciated!
