Strategy discussion for the first week of Tap 19!

midgetmulletmidgetmullet Registered Users, Member 273 Posts
Are you putting your resources into your keepers, created player, slugfest, or your other players? 

Are you trying to move from Bronze to Silver? 

Are you trying to put your blue cash into skills, upgrades, or low level draft picks? 

Are you putting any resources into your pitching ace?

What are you spending your gold on?

Feel free to add more questions to the discussion...

    just do your best to gather resources.  Watch videos, manual play woh and slugfest.

    Cap your upgrades first.   Try to refrain upgrading hitters with under 70 hitting at B1 and pitchers with under 70 stuff.

    @midgetmullet If you plan to cycle slugfest I would buy at least 10 #1 draft picks and make sure my top 6 sluggers are 4* or better with the top 4 being 4.5* or better. I could not get past 2.2 today with the sluggers I had and could then cycle easily, although time consuming, with the 10 or so picks that I bought. Took me a long time as I can't auto play the earlier levels just yet due to cash shortage and sluggers not winning every auto play round but it will eventually get there.

    Slugfest is very important in the beginning as far as getting resources and specially so once they release Prime players and start giving out PXP. Personally I plan to ignore WOH during the Royale as I don't have the batters for it anyway and just do slugfest on those days. You can always do WOH on Mondays. 

    I would also stay Bronze until I have enough EVO/BXP/Cash to move a large of my team to silver and especially so your sluggers

    Don't max your keepers yet as you need the XP elsewhere but I would max my custom legend in Bronze & Silver tiers as he would help a lot in both WOH & Slugfest

    Just to add what @Houmy said, which is sound advice to live by in this game, I think the stadium is a good investment going forward. You are always going to spend gold so might as well make that work for you.

    @dustyhunks Dumb question but where are the items you can buy such as stadiums located?  I saw different items were on sale for a short period of time yesterday, is there a tab?

    I got it, so is the strategy when you have the stadium to only spend gold while there is no "fan reward event"?

    Ideally yes.  I wish I could turn off the fan reward event.

    I am on Level 5 on Slugfest.  I probably won't be able to beat it without some help, but if I add a few buster sluggers, I probably can.  I'm debating if it's worth it or not.  It would be a nice leg up on Slugfest to add a guaranteed 4.5 star slugger off the bat.  I have about 2,000 gold and don't want to get behind the curve on Slugfest.

    @Wicked0Wildcats -just incase u didnt know -  I wouldn't go for the event busters box - they will only be there for the rest of today and then gone. The other draft picks will stay in your roster and better long term value - especially if u get a few good ones

    Thanks Benny.  Yeah I'm familiar with how the Busters work but I do appreciate it anyway.  It's true they're a temporary fix but they are usually quite a bit better than most of your pulls from the permanent picks.  I used them quite often in 2017.  It's a price to pay but I found it to be usually worth it if it was difference maker.

    Np - I did it last year not knowing how it worked!

    3 cycles today with this slugger lineup so it can be done without spending gold if you grind home run battles and other means of accumulating cash to spend on slugger 2nd round draft picks

    I am not putting XP or cash into anyone below a 4.5 star. It's a total waste. I am not rushing to jump to Silver until I have purchased all the upgrades and stockpiled resources. I am spending blue cash on Slugfest draft picks just to have something other than 1 stars.

    I maxed my Keeper Ace to Bronze 10 immediately and used him in the Bronze playoffs to jump through the Bronze levels fast. I just have to win a one game playoff to level to Silver, which I will sit on for the time being.

    I maxed my Keeper Batters to Bronze 10 also, as well as a few 5 star players I got from the VIP rewards. I am close to maxing My Pro as well. The My Pro is probably a higher priority as he can play in Slugfest as well and is my best slugger by far.

    I have about 2k gold from VIP gifts and achievements and I am stockpiling that too. The upgrades to Silver and Gold tiers will cost gold so I don't see a point in gambling on boxes with tiny odds of actually useful players.
    Luck = getting all curveballs in WOH

    Same here! Naturally my best sluggers are lefties and my switch hitting legend bats left in slugfest.

    My tiny brain is confused. What is the difference between Mondays & the Royale on Wednesday? BTW, you always post great stuff, much appreciated!

    Just a Silver team from the wrong side of the tracks, so what do I know? 🤷

    In the ‘18 game, gold disappeared from both Stadium AND Fan Rewards after leveling up,a player. No clue if they have fixed this in the ‘19 game but SCREENSHOT EVERYTHING just in case

    Does anyone know if completing a reward offer that you already completed on '18 will reward again?  And what is best possible position for my legend? I regretted outfielder in '18 because I ended up with way better outfielders than my legend fairly quickly.

    Not exactly sure. I completed two offers today that I did for '18, no gold received. Going to wait a day and see what happens.

    EDIT: I was awarded the gold. I just had to wait a day.

    Does anyone have an idea about how many 4.5 and 5 star sluggers are available?  I keep seeing the exact same ones in posts and in battle. Wondering if there are only a few and not worth buying more Slugger draft picks.

    If you click on the draft picks you'll see samples of them and there seems to be plenty of them and I have gone up against a few of them myself but not many. At 2.5% & 7.5% odds though they'll be hard to pull. Speaking of which I think we had a match yesterday.

    @Houmy thx for the tips on derby. If I dont cycle next week its your fault, and you owe me some gold for my troubles.

    Agree that derby is optimal to accumulate resources.  Banging your head in WOH to win a regular 5 star doesnt really make sense yet.  Once WOH starts offering guys will a skill as a prize then ill shift my attention there
