Thoughts on new CvC Pitchers?

It took six months, but we finally got new CvC pitchers. On top of being good pitchers, they're also now silver pitchers. At a glance, this is going to bring scores down, but silver will really feel the change.
I messed around some and my diamond team only had a small decrease in performance. However, my silver team is now terrible. Lol



If you're not having fun, you're losing.

    This is all well and good but makes my field pass less valuable.  I could usually count on the first 5 levels and get 35k PXP and 7.5 LXP.  Now I have nearly a billiion "regular" points and about 2 million CVC points.  I hope they adjust those milestone levels to match the lower scores.

    Good thing they messed with the one thing that everyone liked instead of fixing the camera panning glitch..lol

    Well, that sucks. I'm Silver as well. I've always stayed Silver every year. My team is terrible now. Do you know if this is permanent? This will force me to go Gold. Something I don't want to do.

    Bing bing bing!  GLU shoots....and SCORES!!!  Mission accomplished.....cue mass exodus from silver to gold and a run in the resources needed.

    Ooooppsss.........



    ............at least they corrected themselves.  Appears that they didn’t really think this one through.

    Won’t change anything for me and I’m silver and staying silver. I rarely have to score more than couple hundred points to get my cvc boxes in my plat club.  

    I see they have already changed the pitchers back lol I seriously doubt they will do that again after the backlash. 

    Glu dont worry about the camera panning back n forth and the app crashing during cvc... instead I would jack with the pitchers for no apparent reason 👍🏻😉

    I went in for my 10 point win, saw 158 Maeda against my 420 Escobar for the first pitch and laughed. I see they're already changing it back, but it's whatever. I like the idea of updated pitchers 🤷‍♂️

    I like the idea of pitchers getting changed and the difficulty increasing.  We are 6 months into the game and they havent changed yet.  Games are supposed to get harder over time.  What if 4 star Ottavino was still the 5.10 pitcher in woh?  I mean things should get changed and updated and it should be up to us to adapt.  I totally understand doing in the middle of the field pass and that it may have not been the best idea on their part but I really hope pitchers get updated moving forward.

    while my score is certainly lower (at gold), i'm happy that these silver teams can't go HAM on the crappy pitchers. they need to chase way less resources than higher tiers, so in big favor of stepping it up the difficulty.

    This still only benefit the top cvc scorers cause their teams are gold or higher and now they wont have to worry about competition from silver teams. Most of them are also big spenders so they wont notice much difference.

    My scores (diamond team) were literally not affected much at all by this. Everyone not diamond is outraged and now quitting the game lol.

    If this benefits anyone it would mostly be diamond players, but those guys bust their asses to stay and be relevant in diamond. I don't agree that this only benefits anyone over silver, because im gold 120k and won my CvC with 49k. So I have a fix for the complainers.. make the pitchers diamond.
    Swing or no swing you're missing that curveball.

    My Alt team is silver and scored just about the same as well.

    Why not make pitchers the same as our current team level? That makes the most sense.

    Btw @criffy...I totally hear you, but respectfully disagree. That fiasco of a CvC was the only reason why your club had a chance vs me last nite/this morning. I typically put up millions+ rounds, but could only manage a couple hundred k while being blindsided by those geniuses at Glu.

    One the one hand, for things like CVC I agree that pitching should be commensurate with whatever level you are.  That keeps the playing field relatively even regardless of what level you are.

    That said, the last thing I want is to see early round WOH pitchers upgraded, because cycling is my lifeblood as an early diamond player, and I need to churn through those early rounds quickly to permit cycle capping.  So unless they make the pitching upgrade a CVC-only change, I guess I'd rather they just keep things the way they are.

    Dang I’m gold and still had a high round of over 8mil but like 19mil overall which is low for me. Can’t believe top 50 after first round tho lol.

    I also put up million+ rounds without bonus guys regularly. I just try to sandbag for easier matchups throughout the day. I'm a gold 146k team so it's pretty easy to put up big numbers - i just get frustrated when i go up against silver teams that have bonus guys that go for 10mm+

    to be fair, i'm more of a cvc sandbag strategist than going all out every round - i never buy field pass so no incentive to. i do agree that diamond teams grind their asses off and should be rewarded, so hopefully this helps them going forward.
