EDIT: UPDATED FOR 07/24 ROYALE AND 07/22

@dfbb, @Bigpredfan, and many others have shared numerous tips and strategies for this event. I know there are still a lot of people that struggle with woh, so I just wanted to add a little something to the discussion in the hopes of helping you get past the wall. I'm not going to cover all of the things that are plastered all over this thread, I just wanted to share the order of BATTERS I use. 

1L= lefty with highest hit rating (including skills)
1R= righty with highest hit rating (including skills)
2-infinite should be obvious 

Level 1:
1. 7L/5R
2. 6L/4R
3. 5L
4. 4L
5. 3R
6. 3L
7. 2R
8. 1R
9. 2L
10. 1L

Level 2:
1. 7L/5R
2. 6L/4R
3. 5L
4. 3R
5. 4L
6. 3L
7. 2R
8. 2L
9. 1R
10. 1L

Level 3:
1. 5L
2. 4L
3. 3L
4. 5R
5. 2L
6. 1L
7. 2R
8. 1R
9. 4R
10. 3R

Level 4:
1. 7L/5R
2. 6L/4R
3. 5L
4. 3R
5. 4L
6. 1L
7. 2L
8. 3L
9. 2R
10. 1R

Royale Level 5:
1. 9L/5R
2. 8L/4R
3. 7L/3R
4. 6L/2R
5. 5L
6. 4L
7. 3L
8. 2L
9. 1R
10. 1L

Monday Level 5:
1. 6L/5R
2. 5L
3. 4L
4. 3L
5. 4R
6. 3R
7. 2R
8. 2L
9. 1L
10. 1R

of course, not everyone has 7 lefties, righties can easily win those earlier matchups vs right handed pitchers and vice versa. I hope this makes sense 👍🏻 

Here's the updated pitching chart:

For the above Royale, 5.8 is now a RHP as well.

    I think this is very helpful. Great organizational strategy, and it combines a general overview with a simple plug-and-chug direction. 

    This might be a dumb question, but switch hitters have the same hit rating on both sides, right? I think ML is my No. 1 vs L and R now that he got boosted. I suppose that kind of situation would just be handled at the user's discretion?

    It depends, cooz. For example, I have marte who is a switch hitter but has double lhp skills, so he's worlds better as a righty than as a lefty.

    What’s the skill?

    I love this list.  Thank you @retirepujols   Also love the list by @DFBB.  I didn't win, but I got to Sale numerous times and got to Arrieta once and lost.  That's some progress.  One day... she will be mine.

    Do you use Encarnacion on Sale? @FrankTheTank04

    I think increasing skill(s) is the key. I have prime double left hand skills Altuve and did not have any problems to face Sales. My Altuve is silver capped. However, I tried to turn off these skills from him and realized Sales gave me only hard sliders and I failed to pass him. Increase skills if your player is good enough.

    I am sorry... No way to turn off skills... Skills are important but this time I did not have instant boost. I have double skills but at the same time I always watch vid to boost instantly. I did not watch vid and Sales gave me all the hard sliders.

    This is probably obvious to most, but I've had a lot of success recently trying to hit all fastballs to the opposite field, which allows me to still crush change-ups.  I basically swing at everything that's straight and lay off everything else (curves, sliders, etc.).  My hitters still hit a ton of HRs to the opposite field and as an added bonus, the defense constantly over-shifts on the infield so that are lots of easy hits to be had just hitting a slow ground ball to the opposite field.

    All I do is hit the other way. HRs are on a line just to the opposite side of second. Won't swing at anything that isn't straight unless there's two strikes and two outs but I'm usually force-closing the app at that point anyway.

    I wasn't thinking, @Bigpredfan. Turns out it really was a stupid question 😂

    Force-closing the app with two strikes and two outs?  Are you saying that you can avoid losing and instead restart the level when the app reloads?  If so, mind blown!
  • FrankTheTank04FrankTheTank04 Registered Users, Member 784 Posts
    @UltimateWarrior Yep I used him on Sale.  Got the tie run a lot, but only won once.  Might not have his skills high enough since he is one of my keepers and it costs 25 evo, but maybe I'll use some I have and go up some points.

    Please share why you force close @Cooz19

    Some people think that force closing will reset the bad rng they're experiencing. No idea if it works, but Not much to lose other than maybe a minute.

    @whynot@DFBB anger, mostly. Possibly rage. Shoulda written rage-quit. Yeah, that's the reason.

    This is awesome to have thanks to OP and everyone for this info 
  • retirepujolsretirepujols Registered Users, Member 3,646 Posts
    @2003cobra yes, sir! I just tried to show the batters I use for woh in hopes that it will help some people out 👍🏻 (i.e. getting stuck on 3.8 trying to use their 3rd best righty available)

    @retirepujols Thanks kind sir!  Maybe I can finally beat some classic.  Hopefully I have some videos.  It's hard to stop clicking for double gold.

    @2003cobra Thanks for that one as well.  
  • 2003cobra2003cobra Registered Users, Member 1,237 Posts
    We are here to help. Pujols makes a great point-certain pitchers are harder than others and u might need your best hitter in a situation that’s not round 10 on that level
  • BlackFang4BlackFang4 Registered Users, Member 510 Posts
    I wouldn't be surprised if the pitchers are different today since it's a new month and the keepers were just boosted.
  • HOKAHEYHOKAHEY Registered Users, Member 7 Posts
    This is great now to see if I can beat it

    Post your lineup and maybe some experts can help you out
  • Cooz19Cooz19 Experienced Member Registered Users 1,067 Posts
    @2003cobra or anyone...I haven't changed anything from the lineup I used to max club points this weekend. ML is a C. I got the prime players this weekend so this is my first WOH with them.

  • 2003cobra2003cobra Registered Users, Member 1,237 Posts
    Pay attention to the pitching chart and stick with the righty lefty matchups and you will be fine. I took a screenshot of it to keep in my photos so it’s easy to find
  • UltimateWarriorUltimateWarrior Registered Users, Member 543 Posts
    @Cooz19 you should be able to make it through classic with no problem. I think you need a few more Lefty hitters for DTI since most of 4,5 level you use a lot of them.
  • 2003cobra2003cobra Registered Users, Member 1,237 Posts
    DTI would give him trouble for sure. Not enough lefties in the lineup although the first few you can do righty against righty and get by with that
