    I love the addition of him in WoH. That is a very challenging round. Much prefer that approach by GLU than dreaded programmed outs.

    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

    I love facing him. It’s way more interesting than the curve balls.

    I agree, definitely a nice touch. I love the knuckle balls. A little more challenging to gauge whether to swing or not, definitely life like! I tell you what though if you get a hold of one it goes a long way.

    yep one of my recommendations a few weeks ago was to add every pitchers full arsenal for WoH instead of programmed outs. I know I would struggle but would enjoy it way more knowing I wasn’t purposely being bent over.

    Yeah, but after seeing a pitch three or four times its easy to recognize and blast. Niekros knuckleball is an easy homer every time round these parts.

    Silence my foot!  He would be much happier if you called him every expletive you could think of after he strikes you out! 🤬🤬
    I'm confused by what you mean by 5.7 and 5.8.  You mean the round and level?

    A real shame. I love facing him in WOH. First week he tied me in knots. Only beat him once so Glu had to cause a crash to put that right. Ever since then, I’ve only lost to him once. His fastball can beat me for pace if I’m delaying my swing but the knuckle balls are fun. 

    Rather than cheating you with 9 curve balls, I find the introduction of new pitchers gives me a fair challenge. I usually lose first time I face a new one.
