Glu picks and chooses. I see teams that are at like 70K strength that are VIP, which is ridiculous. You know a 70K account isn't spending. I'm 180K at gold and can't get a taste of VIP. It's not about spending... it's about favortism.
It's not supposed to be easy. Some days you will get better sequences than others. I cycled 7 times yesterday, but it was because of persistence. Maybe the most difficult 7 cycles I've ever earned. At the end of the day if your players are good enough and your persistent, you'll get it done.
One of my biggest beefs over the last few weeks was that fastballs and changeups down the middle were becoming routine outs. No such problems today. Maybe it's just me but I like that this issue seems to have been addressed. Thanks Glu.
