While @DFBB doesn't share in this opinion of GLU, he simply can't because he in now the unofficial poster boy for GLU and doing so would reflect poorly.
Just to be clear, he did deserve it 100% and glad he got VIP honors. No one does more then Alex on these forums. I think they just used him and exploited him, the way I see it anyways. Alex is well known and liked here and they took the opportunity to save face. BTW, I think @Houmy was the first ever VIP of the month last year when they started doing it. So to pick sides or anything but I am a @Houmy supporter if he ever comes back and wants to run against @DFBB.
You need a LOT of time in diamond if you're trying not to spend money (even if you spend a lot of money). If you don't have the time for diamond, and stay gold let's say; I'm not sure how else to do it without spending money. Of course you can spend your time watching videos, but the time required for videos isn't very different than the time needed to cycle d6. Truth be told, it's a little embarrassing and concerning when thinking about how much time and money a lot of us spend on a simple mobile baseball game that is little more than pressing a few autoplay buttons. I'm not sure what it is that keeps us around, because it's something, but all of the issues within the game are certainly chipping away at that "something" for a lot of players.
I agree that a full WOH on weekends would be insanity. You would have diamond guys cycle capping the reward players and hoarding enough resources to play out the rest of the year. But if they make it harder, then people would be irritated and revolt, because nobody likes to be able to do something and then suddenly not be able to do that thing (i.e., cycle at will on Mondays, but suddenly can't on weekends).
One thing to consider would be to make the WOH reward the weekend player boxes and a LXP/PXP box from last year. If a diamond player wants to cycle 50 times, he can open 50 weekend player boxes, but for most people I imagine they'd be cycling 10 or fewer times. If my experience over the weekend is any indicator, they might not even pull a player from those 10 boxes, or maybe on the 10th box if the pity timer is in effect.
I may be in the minority but I would enjoy having royale on weekends for the bonus games as well. I play bonus games all weekend anyway so it would be nice to get some points.
This has been a great thread to read. Debate. I miss being able to cycle WOH for the bonus players on Mondays and Wednesdays. I understand that isn't ideal for diamond players looking to cap the HOF player. But it gave guys who loved playing the game a chance to get several bonus guys without spending the ridiculously overpriced cost of the boxes. The anticipation for the boxes was huge. What has killed the game this year is the lack of solutions for the glitches. We are 6 months in and problems that were problems in Tsb18 are still very prevalent. I would love to see the devs focus more on the current game play rather than trying to add new features. Fix the broken parts first! If there is a TSB 20, it's going to fail miserably. Guys just aren't going to keen chasing the dragon.
I wanted to give this both an agree and disagree, so decided to just respond. I don't think TSB20 will fail. The game, like most mobile games, makes it's money on the top 5% who spend, and those guys are not going anywhere. New people will find the game, and many of the complainers will learn they're too addicted to leave (me included). The game will be fine financially.
But I definitely agree that they need to clean up the game's glitches. Just a few tweaks here and there would dramatically improve the experience. Maybe their revenue stream suggests otherwise, but the paucity of premium xp has really detracted from my enjoyment. Cycling HOF is supposed to be an achievement, but for me it's a mixed blessing -- glad I did it, but ultimately frustrating in that I got a player I can never really use. I simply don't have the time or resources to cycle 10+ times, I couldn't cycle cap in Classic with my schedule. Three HOF cycles was my record yesterday, and that was with a rare Monday live boost.
Is a little more LXP too much to ask for? Just put it in the CVC mvp boxes, at least.
