Absolute worst ATG they’ve ever released. Not remotely an all time great. But Glu clearly wants to capitalize on him being a switch hitter. Hornsby and Jackie are legitimately two of the best. If they really wanted a third ATG at the position, then Morgan (an ATG last year) and Carew (regularly released legend) would…

Well, only if you kept a 21 ATG. If you kept last weekend’s Jim Abbott, for example, then you’re just out of luck.

  • The boxes made me yawn too, but then spent a bunch of my saved gold anyway. Sigh. Given that we now have 620 primes…is there a bump to 680 coming? I hope not, but chasing 680s might be what brings the beta folks back to TSB21.

That really would be some conversation, because Rick Ferrell died in 1995.

Good points. I still think there are so many more things to buy now, the cost is exorbitant for those who do not always win daily events to refresh gold. But this could also just be my personal experience, as I do not have the time to cycle D6 every day, or even every few days. 
  • I agree with @DFBB that taking a wait and see approach is wise. Always is. At the same time, how often in the past five years has the game made changes that allowed for a cheaper way to compete? There are isolated examples but bottom line, in aggregate, the game is more expensive to compete in with each passing year. I…

All of my bats are 22/30 skills. But most of my righties have skills that only activate with a hit (hot), in a blowout, or if someone is on base. So in most cases it was a situation where the pitcher had two skills active and I had none. My TS is around 392k. 
  • Anecdotally, my team is pretty strong, and when I come up against 660 RHPs, my righties are borderline useless. When I look at the stats, Teddy and Musial (lefties with first pitch) are often the only guys getting hits. If I try to play an inning myself, the righties just get destroyed by 660 rhps. Also, living legend…
  • Does anyone know whether this is the last bump before TSB2022? Nice to see a unique skill set on an ATG. Back to back double blowout righties was a bit of a downer. 
  • I wonder if they’ll keep bumping keepers past their original max. As we keep getting higher rated players, presumably 660s soon, the keepers will fall pretty far behind the curve. 
  • 
Obviously I’m biased, but Seaver should be an ATG. He passed away this year, is the Mets all time greatest player, and has not been released yet this year (although Glu has a license to use his image, if recent years are any indicator). I’m hoping we see him among the ATGs soon. 
  • My keeper Gagne is still (by far) my best reliever. So even though he has only a handful of saves, I’m still ok with the decision to keep him. 
  • The new X factors being (real) cash only, and running just from 11-15, is really disappointing. Hard to spend money on those when 16-20 factors are right around the corner. I’m sure it was the same last year, but it still stinks. 
  • I use Jackie and he does fine, although I do apply the 40 gold boost just to be sure. If you’re a moments guy, the Mookie from a couple weeks ago, with the WOH X factor and the Mets moment, is pretty dominant. 
  • I like the analysis on both sides here. I think N is probably the clever answer, but Y is the intended answer. 
  • 
I guess that’s true, it certainly will be good for those who rely on gifts to fill out a top level roster. For me, I can’t imagine leveling him unless Glu assigns him significant bonus points.
  • I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but I’ve never really understood the value of giving away a player to everyone. A player everyone has is about as value as a player nobody has. It’s one thing if you’re giving a reliever or some rarer commodity, but they’re giving a first baseman. 
  • Comes and goes. Pulled Mays 6x, got every ATG up to Ted. Then missed Cy, Hank, Babe, Schmidt. If anything i spent more gold chasing the latter group, with no luck. 
  • 
It’s so dumb. It’d be one thing if they said that Baez was a Cub at the start of the year so he has to remain a Cub. But they already changed Baez to a Met. Now he’s a Tiger. So it’s just laziness not to change him again….
  • Any chance Glu changes Baez’s pennants to Tigers? He’s got the Mr. Tiger graphic, it’s a Tigers weekend, and the moments are for Tigers hitters. Seems like a no brainer, if you’re going to charge customers $5 for someone so far behind the curve.
  • They seem way ahead of last year’s pace. Highest player rating was 600 in 2019, 610 in 2020, would suggest 620s by end of this year. But it’s November, we are moving 20 points at a time, and are already at 580s. 
  • 
It’s funny how everyone has a different perception. I had no interest in going Diamond until ATGs came out; now I’m Diamond and playing a ton to chase my favorite ATGs. Others consider the game over as soon as ATGs are out. This truly is a “to each his own” kind of game. 
  • 
I don’t think that number is indicative of cheating, just of someone who has literally nothing else to do with his life. 
  • 
Pitcher Babe, Christy Mathewson, Cy, all still to come. Plus whatever random legend pitchers they decide to release over the last two weeks of the TSB season. 
  • 
It is funny. I wrote back that it’s literally impossible to “sell out” of fictional currency. It’s like telling my kids that bedtime stories are “sold out” and they’ll have to go to bed without them. 
  • 
Just heard back. They said they “sold out” of the deal because it was too “tasty.” No satisfaction at all. I don’t get too upset about video games. But you can’t show me a picture of 80k gold, have me pay real money for it, and then not pay out. There has to be some recourse. Absurd. 
  • It was there when I paid 9.99, but I didn’t receive it. False advertising is a legitimate claim here. That wasn’t a glitch. It was an offer. 
  • 
It’s not against the law it’s just really weird to be so vitriolic. If you hate the game leave it alone. It’s not that hard to figure out.

My money is on Ted Williams. Red Sox play today, haven’t had a lefty yet, was an early release last year, plays a non-premium position (important to Glu after releasing Jackie at 2b). Just a hunch.

I see what you’re saying but I think the point is, most of the whales in this game are still spending until they get the big legends every event.
