  • Update: I was getting matched up with platinum team anyway to I went platinum.  GLU wins, and I’m still competing so I guess I win too.  Time to shift my strategy around who to keep and how to level, but that adds a dimension to the game that I enjo…
  • Is Turner only in Platinum and higher?  Not seeing him at the Gold level.
  • 
Ehhhh, you bet on Glu to deliver sooner rather than later - this one's on you.
  • 
I keep all my box pulls (bench space permitting) because Glu cycles old boxes in about a month later pretty frequently.  I had Luke Voit at G2 and Joey Gallo at G1 which was a nice bonus for WOH yesterday.  I pulled Voit twice from the May …
  • 
I left my keepers behind for this reason.  I'm saving my resources and will level them when I can put them to use.
  • For WOH Rendon is the best righty closer to date.  I’ve been using 330 Francisco “one skill always active” Lindor as my lefty closer and he got me through 6.10 at gold level today.  Soto is probably the best for all other game modes.
  • 
That's the impression I've gotten since last year, and why I stayed gold for 2019.  I was thinking depending on the matchup algorithm changes, when you start butting up against the top of the Gold progression and start getting matched up wi…
  • 
I spend a lot of time playing the game, in place of spending money, and have since TSB2017.  I stuck to Gold last year after playing Diamond in 2018 but I'm tempted to move to platinum if it's viable for F2P mainly to make WOH more interest…
  • I know ll about the resource requirements, I guess what I'm asking is more around player leveling and roster construction.  For example, what do I need in start of pitching rotation?  One Ace maxed at P10?  5 starters leveled to P3?  Leave them at G…
  • 10th box and a decent chunk of XP on the way.  I can dig it. 
  • Got Belli on the 10th box.  Smart play by Glu bc now I'm tempted to spend $20 for the set bonus.  Time to call my sponsor.
  • I've had great luck on boxes compared with odds for the most part.  I have 4 two-skill max 330 players and only money I've spent this year is on a ballpark: Rendon, Betts, Lindor, Soto. I know it comes and goes, but I'm definitely beating the house …
  • We did see ATG keeper (Mantle I think) as a CVC bonus player yesterday - won't be surprised to see this sort of thing sprinkled in moving forward, and may be specific to ATG which gives them a nominal edge over a comparable max-600 non-ATG player. 
  • 
I agree 100% - GLU hasn't explained this to me, it is just my observation of a bug and workaround for those affected while it still exists.  GLU needs to fix it.  No part of the game should be this fragile.
  • I have had this happen twice - once during beta and again today.  The common thread in both those times was that I had the app open when the count was supposed to reset (5pm Pacific currently).  I will make a point to close the app before 5pm and re…
  • It's a wedge of the field that you need to hit the ball within.  E.g. the middle of the field (15 degrees on either side of 2nd base), or extreme pull.  "Streak" bonuses similar to CVC.
  • Taking George Brett and Satchel Paige with me for sure.  For my second hitter, should I: 1) Take Johnny Bench (LHP/LHP) 2) Take Rogers Hornsby (ROB/LHP) 3)  Keep trying for a second left handed batter with two WOH relevant skills
  • This is an HOF box for the common man!  I may take today to cycle HOF and try to land Bench to replace Hornsby as my second keeper.  Brett is already locked in and then I'll build by Legend as SS. 
  • iOS here - anyone have a summary of updates from the new release?
  • 
I stayed Gold in 19 after going Diamond in 18.  I just didn't play the playoffs that would have bumped me to Platinum.  For 20, they'll likely make it harder to stay in the lower levels and incent teams to level up through the ranks so my a…
  • Took me about 15 boxes and $13 but I got Brett - all set for 2020 now with him and Hornsby - going to upgrade from Hornsby to another Brett-like lefty if possible in the next few weeks.  Ready for the eventual Ichiro drop...
  • I had planned on taking blowout skill guys, so Ty Cobb was a target for me since I believe the skills don't turn off/on after the first at bat in a WOH round.  HOWEVER, Glu is advertising that skills turn off/on with each PITCH in 2020, so that chan…
  • 
I have not been able to purchase successfully yet, tried to buy the ballpark.
  • Bowa's getting traded in on Monday, but I'm a F2P grinder with bias for double WOH skills.
  • I love that you can just start cranking on tourney boxes before the event starts.  No bonus points, but can start the event with bonus players in theory.
  • Ty Cobb is the only ATG hitter I would keep if the game ended today, assuming 2 batters.  Hornsby, Berra and Mantle all fringe too.  Expecting that the bump will get us to 600 though, so that’ll change my choices.
  • First pass at Babe with Reggie at G9 with 12/12/ skills (far from maxed out) and I clocked him with 80 gold boost.  This bodes well, replaces my righty closer (Toby Harrah).
  • I only care about WOH.  No evidence or anecdotes that convince me that blowout turns off in WOH.  Reggie is a closer, straight up - I'll see this weekend how he fares against Babe.
  • Yup, this guy is ke eper material even if they flex to max 600.  Might keep him over Mickey Mantle... thoughts?
