WoH for 2-11-19: Time for Incentives?

We now know that for carryovers, player levels will not matter. As a result, resources will also mean very little. WoH has traditionally given us recycled players from the weekend box and sprinkled them with past legends and ATGs. That formula was cool because it gave us a shot at players we otherwise wouldn't be chasing. Even when the players weren't ideal, some of us grinded all day for resources. Thing is, considering the carryover details, the status quo won't cut it moving forward.
What do I expect today? Probably the same old thing to be honest. However, I'm hopeful that we'll get some game changing players in the next two weeks and I'm hoping that trend begins today. I'm hoping GLU will give us every reason to play as much as possible today. I expect the ATGs to flood the boxes yet again. Beyond that and the marquee weekend box players(LL Davis, Bryant), it will be interesting to see GLU's move this week. I believe that today will be a good indicator of how they will approach the rest of the '18 season. For those who are still grinding, I sure hope they haven't packed it in. GL and as always, show me holiday Ted!

    I have Molitor at D7 and am hoping for an opportunity to get a level or two if he is a 10% guy.

    Wonder if it will be cranked up or cake.....

    @JEDDDOGGY Dude, you get everyone! What's the secret??

    @bigvivec People love easy, but I expect it will be just like last week. Hoping they keep a righty at 5.10 too.

    I'm not expecting much and think it will be business as usual, with some ATGs in the box. But I really hope I get surprised. Otherwise a quiet day as I have my lefty killer locked in with Mantle and am only really waiting to see if a 540+ righty killer is there to chase.

    @DFBB haha I wish!

    I opened about 100 boxes using gold farmed from cycling D6 the weekend before last trying to get Castro and didn't (and then subsequently found out he's not really that great anyway lol).

    I spent quite a lot of gold trying to get Jed & Goldy the weekend they were released. Didn't get either, and they ended up being 45% rewards the following Wednesday in WOH (oops...).

    This past weekend I spent my gold on upgrading current players instead of throwing it at boxes, which took a lot of willpower and self control lol, so maybe I've learned my lesson on hammering those weekend boxes.

    I did get Boggs the weekend he came out though and had some other pretty lucky pulls in the past, but definitely not getting everyone! :p

    @JEDDDOGGY In other words, you only get elite bats? LOL

    Ha, Jed & Goldy might have been considered fairly 'elite' at the time. Crazy how far we've came in only a couple/few short weeks. Holiday Ted was a purchase, of course.

    I'm still on a huge 0-fer in WOH boxes. Been cycling 12-18 times per event since Black Friday and haven't pulled a 1 percent guy yet. Has to be approaching 500 boxes now, I think... :(

    @benny100 I hope we see Babe, the batter, in the box again. It would be nice to chase a guy so I can save 15k gold/280k lxp.

    That would be a nice pull to get him capped!

    I wish they gave him a better set of skills for 5.10 WOH - then my keepers would be a no brainer! That RISP keeps us searching!

    Here is hoping for Mantle so I can keep him instead of Jed.

    @benny100 I totally agree man. It's sad, but I'm unlikely to carryover Babe for that same reason. :(

    Absolutely no reason not to cap Judge on re-pulls today.
  • jclarrick3jclarrick3 Registered Users, Member 35 Posts
    @DFBB ATGs & Reggie 10%, Phil 45%, Giambi 45%

    Man, hopefully Jed & Goldy can handle 5.9 and 5.10 today. I'm about to find out.
  • benny100benny100 Registered Users, Member 757 Posts
    My clubs bracket is already horrible and I have the 2 ATGs...... pulled Jackson first cycle. 
    Think I am done for the day. Good luck guys.
  • DFBBDFBB Registered Users, Moderators, Member, Moderator 6,277 Posts
    It took a replay, but Jed got it done.

    @DFBB used Jed on 5.9 and he didn't put up much of a fight. If you're using him on 5.10, who's your 5.9 guy if you don't mind me asking?
  • lpoheronlpoheron Registered Users, Member 170 Posts
    Jed got nothing but garbage 2 times boosted. Giving goldy a shot next time
  • DFBBDFBB Registered Users, Moderators, Member, Moderator 6,277 Posts
    @JEDDDOGGY Sorry bud, top secret!


    Jk...I'm using Goldy at 5.9.

    Not sure i'm too excited about this box. No 550 players, which GLU seemed to indicate were coming...
  • Punkers777Punkers777 Registered Users, Member 236 Posts
    Definitely harder today. Had some surprising autoplay restarts. 
  • ReadingFightingPhilsReadingFightingPhils Registered Users, Member 305 Posts
    Michael Jack Schmidt was the man for me again.  Not going to have much time today, so glad the first one went through without video restarts.  Got Giambi, so maybe I just play for club points today.  Schmidt has always been good to me, he has a high hit and good WOH skills.  I am leaving to take him with me.
