    Uhh, those look pretty active to me....what am I missing?

    why are the icons illuminated but the boosts not applied?


    Bgs/seasonals/tourneys/prime games are very inconsistent. Sometimes, the boosts icon will light up and work, sometimes they will light up and not work(like the one pictured in @Metsicans' post. Other times, it will not light up at all. It's been that way ever since skills were introduced and unfortunately, it didn't get addressed in '19. Fwiw, no such issues are known for WoH and CvC.

    It's just wrong.  If you advertise something, and require in-game currency to obtain it, you should obtain the benefit you bargained for.  Especially because in-game currency often costs real money.

    I know it's "just" the Forum World Series, but I had a real chance in my game, it was 1-0.  Stat boosts could have made the difference.  Maybe not (my opponent's boosts could have been inactive too for all I know).  But it would have been nice if the game worked properly so we could all find out.

    Congrats to @awesomepossum9 who won a 5 game nail-biter, 1-0 in Game 5. 

    The fifth game dramatically shined a late on skill-gate, because my skills were inactive the entire game.  Without those skill boosts, I had no chance against Gaylord Perry.  Top of the 9th, my worst hitter comes up, but at least he has double active Late Innings skill...nope, skills not active.  Argh.  

     

    I’m facing the same thing in the next round

    Big shoutout and many thanks to @criffy for setting this up. It was fun and challenging. Hope we can do it again. 
  • criffycriffy 592 PostsRegistered Users, Member
    congrats @Horse42 !! saw the game come down to late innings in game 5, what a way to end it!
  • criffycriffy 592 PostsRegistered Users, Member
    Just providing an update - we're almost wrapped up folks.

    @awesomepossum9 is waiting for the winner of the remaining semifinals match featuring @GordonBombay and @mtrinks76 - series is tied at 1-1 at the moment. Hopefully can wrap this up in the next week!
  • whynotwhynot 457 PostsRegistered Users, Member
    So who was the winner and what was the great prize @blueleopard got them?
  • criffycriffy 592 PostsRegistered Users, Member

    My TS has improved by 55K since this thing started. When does Season 2 start?

    what, did you finally learn how to play the game? only took you the last month...
  • criffycriffy 592 PostsRegistered Users, Member
    And we're wrapped up. @GordonBombay took the final series 3-1 over @awesomepossum9 in the gold bracket. Congrats to all of our winners!

    Although the tourney slowed down in pace in the later rounds, it seems like all of the participants had fun with this. Had a fun time organizing it, maybe we do one more at the end of the season (late Feb?) - but not committing to it.

    To @blueleopard - the winners of the tournament were:
    Silver: @fahhq2 (in-game name: JeffSpicoli)
    Gold: @GordonBombay (in-game name: ReggieDunlop)
    Diamond: @Horse42 (in-game name: Horse42)

    Interested to see what cool prize @blueleopard was talking about but this was created in the name of good ol' fun, without a prize in mind. Custom stickers maybe? ;)

    Thanks again @criffy
    it was a fun experience, but a prize would be great too!

    How about a dislike sticker we can post on here, as a consolation prize I would take DFBB’s custom player since he really doesn’t need it on his team.

    Haha for real. If the WS started today I’d be the #4 or #5 instead of #22 seed 😂

    congrats @GordonBombay @fahhq2 @Horse42

    Next time let’s go big. A full season showdown. Everyone plays everyone and 6 best records make the playoffs.

    Congrats y'all!

    Can we open a silver division?
    Sure, just add the sign up columns to the spreadsheet. Hopefully we can draw @mythicaldragon back to participate with his all 520 team ;)
  • mythicaldragonmythicaldragon 1,077 PostsRegistered Users, Member
    Absolutely! I think I just missed the last one it must have been at the end of my “ I quit F this game period” lol. All 560s and two 540s now 😬 minus pitchers they don’t matter 😂. Although in this particular case they do?! 🤔 Yup I’ll get slaughtered but will be fun to participate! Im in! 👍🏻 when is it happening how do I sign up? Thanks 
    My SP’s are 520, 510, 500, 500, 500  😕

    Not yet. They told me to wait a few weeks because Glu switched offices. By that time TSB20 will be here.

    Probably because someone pissed all over the old office, you can thank this guy...
