Yes, we are aware of the game having crashing issues in the middle of WoH, but we can't compensate you for the gold you lost at this time. This is done on a case by case basis. - TSB Customer Service
Welp, got lucky with some errors and managed to get to Verlander again. Like a dumbass, I just used gold to up Kruk's skills AGAIN. 13/13. Matchup favorability is more than double. Like 335 to 151.
First pitch in the dirt. Walk. YAY
Next three pitches, curves nowhere near. One out.
Next three pitches nowhere near. Two out.
Next pitch down the middle for a slow roller. Video reboot now.
What a joke this is.
WHY DO I KEEP PLAYING!
Well fellas, I finally effing won it today. About to go have a few "beers" and try to play through a few more times for more XP.
After video reboot:
Three straight curves, one out.
Got three down the middle and hit three soft singles. Loaded the bases.
Three straight curves. Two out.
Down the middle, soft hit. One run scores. 4-1.
Next pitch is a curveball nowhere near. I'm thinking "here we go again. MFers". I take it just waiting to get bent over. For some strange reason the next pitch in the sequence was right down the pipe. I hit it the other way for a granny. 5-4.
I'm still going to kick the neighbor's cat though. Just because.
I'm still not cycle capping, but I did beat it again last night. Almost beat it again a third time, but kept popping up when I got to Verlander.
My second win was absolutely nuts. I was in 5.9, started with six straight curves. Didn't see another curve and managed to come back and win it with 2 two outs to start the round. I was pretty giddy.
Get to 5.10 and Verlander was all straight pitches. I would pull the slower ones and hit anything over 90 the other way. Scored got the score to 4-3, loaded the bases, and hit another granny.
So basically, starting at 5.9, I ran off 12 runs in a row to win. Very unusual.
I didn't mention in my whines and summaries above, but last night, I found when I didn't use any boosters, whether video or gold, it seemed the round didn't include as much frickery. I especially quit using it with Petit, and beat him every time after my post above.
I only used a video boost on 5.9 and 5.10 twice, then stopped. When I won the second time with the 12 straight run thingy, there was no video boost for either.
I didn't switch to a live team because I'm so close in my season to getting that 20K of extra PXP. I intend to use that to boost another attribute to the Legend XP level on one of my top guys.
I cycled 6 times without using even a video restart before the Rays/A's game began. For the next 3 cycles, I was RNG'd to hell and back on 5.9 and 5.10, having to use multiple restarts and 80g boosts (which was just silly given the ease with which those first 6 cycles went). So I switched my favorite team over to the A's to get the live boost, and proceeded to complete 4 more cycles with no restarts and only video boosts on 5.9-5.10. Seems dumb to me that I would need to switch to a live boost, but whatever.
