TSB - A Love Story

SandlotGuruSandlotGuru Registered Users, Member 189 Posts

TSB – I’ve been under your trance for months, but you’ve never loved me back.  App crashes and ghost pitches during WoH, videos randomly pausing and force-closing, crashes when upgrading players, video boosts never working – all of it annoying, frustrating, maddening, or worse.  But at its core, an amazing game – the chase for better players, simple game play, and best of all – baseball and a connection to real life performance.

On Saturday I upgraded from an old iPhone 6 Plus to a new iPhone XR and it changed my TSB world.  No crashes, no lag, all the videos I can handle – and the realization that all my negative feelings were actually due to my hardware – not TSB…me…it’s always been me.

Up until Sunday night, I’d been routinely beating classic WoH on Mondays and Wednesdays but never at a cost of less than 2,000 gold.  TSB held me back with all of its “bugs”.  On Monday night I beat WoH while using only 160 gold (80 gold boosts on 5.9 and 5.10)!  I thought to myself - that was relatively easy (maybe a dozen restarts), that was incredibly fun, I must have gotten lucky.  I upgraded Wolters to G9 and thought, let’s see how the other half lives, let’s try to “cycle”.  I again raced through all stages with only one gold restart at 5.10!  I always knew that cycling would produce incredible returns, but holy smokes, its friggin’ awesome!       

To all you haters out there – it’s not TSB or Glu…it’s you…it’s always been you.  I love you TSB!  XOXO

    Nice story, but, unpopular opinion alert, Glu is still a pretty shitty company. They casually drop videos from unlimited to 125/day. They refuse to fix bugs such as the cvc one where you finish a round and the screen pans around forever and there is not continuation, and then refuse to compensate when I had 3 screenshots to prove that I was right. Rewards for prime events that occur 5 days out of the week are an absolute joke, even while everyone calls for them to be revamped. Android users face massive lag issues compared to Apple users. (It takes three times as long to complete one bonus game for an Android user.) The club feature is rather flawed with the current state in that one should just play solo in a platinum or better club for cvc 100% of the rewards, or they should reset daily to get top ten in all the events. Franchise coins are still obselete in most cases, although it appears more options will be coming in the next update. Slugfest, which I piled resources into, thinking that it would be useful, has seen it's rewards untouched since the beginning of the year. 

    This game is not perfect. And that's okay. No game is perfect. But the game is at a point where it's beginning to get repetitive. For most players who are gold and below, we should stock resources for a move up. This means, in all honesty, to just sit around on all days that aren't Monday and Wednesday, and watch videos for gold. The other aspects of the game - except for CVC - are pointless. And for players who are diamond, I'm sure it must be nice to grind out a thousand games for the hell of it and the nice rewards, but most players aren't at that point yet. I feel as if this game focuses around  the 12 hours on Monday and Wednesday. 

    So although the game has its epic moments, such as pulling a 1.5% pull, or beating 6.9 on WOH, it seems to be deeply flawed. I genuinely hope this is fixed over the next update.

    I dunno, the level-up-player crash is getting pretty annoying. Same with finish-CvC-round-tap-menu crash. Bugfix is not buying an XR lol.

    On a different note has anybody noticed that you can no longer tell who hit that "disagree" link on the posts anymore? #transparencygate

    I thought it was an option in profile and searched last week but couldn't find. I do still see some disagrees here and there though I think.

    I had a post get 6 (6!!!!) disagrees the other day. I’ve only had 28 total since 2016, so I was actually kinda proud of getting that many

    I didn't mean you can't click it. It just doesn't show who disagrees anymore when you hover over it.

    I wouldn't fall head over heels in love with them, but I'm glad your experience has improved! I just wish us peasant Android users could have a quicker and smoother experience like you Royal iPhone folk 😢 for that, it's not me.. it's them 👽

    Yeah I saw that on the "Scam" post. Seemed odd for that one comment. As I said, #transparencygate.

    @Bigpredfan I found your 6 disagrees in one comment pretty unreasonable. All you said was that people are still playing tsb18, not sure why the truth is so disagreeable 😂

    It just wasn’t popular, so people don’t agree with it. It’s ok to disagree

    I know, that's what I meant. Thought there may be a profile option to hide your name when you disagree. But I still see some names when I mouse-over when one is clicked. Maybe it's on own comments you can see it?

    I loved it. Even added “God Bless Glu” to the end of my next post to see if I could top 6

    @retirepujols apple is the devil's communication device anyway. Or was the one bite logo just a coincidence?

    Very well played, @Houmy 😂. By the way, I've thought about this for quite some time... It's pronounced homie, right?

    Why is it that the speeds are so different? I just recently bought a new iPad and it’s light years ahead of my phone in this game (galaxy s8+)

    LOL you're actually not the first to ask me that. Who+me would be it.

    Gotcha, I'll make sure to pronounce it correctly in my head from here on out 🙃

    Eh... not being able to see who disagrees with me doesn't really bother me all that much. I probably get more upset when I see a franchise coin displayed after a bonus game.

    And all this time, I thought you were my Homie! Thanks for the clarification. Who me is actually funnier.

    It just means I can disagree with every one of your posts now and you’ll never know it is me. I happen to agree with this one though :(. I would include tournament boxes here as well

    And so it starts. Not sure what part of this called for a "Disagree" but I am sure a lot more will come. Is GLU trying to get us to be less engaged on the forum now so that we can spend more time on the app?

    The game had Anarchy for so many years. Then they merged and now we have anarchy here :(

    Well I've had 8 disagrees since that last post less than half an hour ago. GLU has opened the troll gates (#trollgate) with this decision. I'm sure I am not the only one who cares about his online identity and not wanting to deal with trolls this will be my last post until/if GLU fixes this issue.

    I’ve had 28 dislikes from July 2016-this weekend. 

    I now have 69. That’s not a coincidence that I have somehow received 60% of my dislikes in the last 3 days when I’ve been on here for over 1050 days 

    maybe I should just become a lurker. You know, like all those people who only ever take from the forums and never give back to the community.

    I can only assume that some don't feel 'safe' to disagree if it's transparent. However, one of the things that I've enjoyed about the forums is that there's some accountability. By that, I mean, our names are attached to things we like and things we don't like. As the forums continue to grow, the number of trolls will also rise accordingly. As is, there's no telling if the community at large disagrees with our opinions. Maybe it's trolls, maybe it's not. Hopefully, the admins will revisit their decision because I don't think this is the result they imagined.

    Also, @Bigpredfan, 69? I know you like that number, but you might want to refresh your profile. :wink:
    Mi casa es su casa...except during cvc.

    Interesting. I'm pretty new to the forum, but had 0 disagrees until that scam post 🤔 oh well 🤷🏻‍♂️
