    @dustyhunks look at Alex, if he plays hard. He can bang out 4-5 cycles a day with ease. And lots of guys who compete are doing those cycles when they need to build up gold with bronze line ups. You can do a cycle on IOS in 4hrs. They are picking who they "think" are auto tappers. So is @DFBB on that list because he has 450k GP?
    He has 413k. Which again isn’t even 2 a day. I agree guys can do more than 2.  But not consistently at all. Maybe on a gauntlet weekend.  I’m fine if they cap everyone at 2 per day.

    ROFLMMFAOOOOO this is what happens when people abuse their exploits to the tune of 300k+ games played… i mean come on guys, did you really expect it to last forever just because mr. moderator was abusing it too? Here's a hint when you abuse something to the point where it's so blatantly obvious action has got to be taken.  especiallyvwhen a pending sale is middling… 

    Please point me, as an iOS user, to the autotap app that you're indirectly referencing cause I haven't found it. If you're talking about Switch Control well then we can agree that you don't know what you're talking about.


    Switch control for bonus games, and a physical autotapper from Amazon for tournaments. I have videos of both being used on iPhone, so let's not pretend here. This game blows ass without a tapper. 

    If you have hundreds of thousands of games played WITHOUT a tapper - are you literally glued to your phone every minute of the day pressing autoplay? How is that not worse?

    This play does not accomplish anything for GLU. This doesn't impact the spenders by any means, what this does is impact people like @DFBB where he doesn't spend on this game and relays on the free gold to compete. You are limiting people to 2 cycles a day, when on average it takes you 50-100k per event to pull players.  I mean alot of people fall into that category. This only benefits GLU by not giving out more resources to people.

    Yeah that's not me in the slightest. I've heard about the physical autotapper but I'm lazy and it's just sounds like too much work. Plus Switch Control is preloaded and not automatic in any stretch. Maybe so with the autotapper you mention but ugh lol, wooorrrk.

    I actually enjoy playing games with autoplay. At least I did up until about 3-4 weeks ago as 200k+ is a lot. Less than that is a lot but I reached a limit at some point even though I can get motivated when I have the set or both ATG's which isn't often.

    Yes, at times and 100% that is not healthy. I would autotap if it was available I'm sure. This thread isn't a discussion about what is good or bad and there's no judgement in my posts but when you're gonna come in here and claim you're a victim you should have all your informational ducks in a row.

    🤷‍♂️ for me, this game requires entirely too much money and effort to play anywhere near "competitively." I've played 23 total games in the past week and a half - all manually babyyyy 😰

    Edit:

    Plus Switch Control is preloaded and not automatic in any stretch. 
    I know guys that have run 1,000 bonus games overnight with switch control. I couldn't even do that with all of the captcha I got ☹ add in ios guys doubling gifts, like vip gifts, and the "switch region to the UK for unlimited prime games" thing most of the year and I'd say ios has been better for the lightweight cheaters. Anything outside of GG basically and ios has taken the cake. Tell Joe/Kaylastrong and SkillzMadd to report that 🧀 😇

    Can you get confirmation on this @jalapenocubbies that everyone has the same limit. Because it seems like only people who fall into their criteria for 2 cycles a day. So everyone else is fine to do how ever many they want?

    You really seems interested in knowing the limits @dkarski87 👀
  • dkarski87dkarski87 Registered Users, Member 3,024 Posts
    I dont really care, I'm not a f2p player who bitches and crys about spending 15$ a week on FP.  This impacts the people who play a game that dont/cant afford to spend to compete and have fun. @lovingcurves so if you need .99 to disable your ads id be more then happy to do that for you troll.  I want to know why some people have limits and others do not, its the same shit when they introduced Captcha to Droids. They assumed it was because IOS didnt have autoclickers meanwhile they did all year round. People that say otherwise are just naive. Im perfectly fine with a limit, as long it applies across the board. They didnt do that with Captcha's on apple.

    I tried Retro Bowl but have no control over defense which makes it unplayable for me, unfortunately. TSB is the same way, but idk why, just doesn't bother me as much with a baseball game (or else I'm just used to it).

    No doubt.  People talk about having families and jobs too.  How can someone be on their phone that much every day and haven't alienated himself or herself from the world.

    I'm like Mike D'Antoni, baby.. Who needs defense when you can just double the offense?!!

    And there's the requirement of sleep.  Like @retirepujols said- This game really sucks without a tapper.  I also find it hilarious that people are angry at one another for cheating when they're cheating too. It's a phone game that requires no skill. Whoever cheats or manipulates better is the winner.

    This is my new favorite thread!!!!  Where else can I hear all the auto-tappers bitching and whining?  Eliminating auto-tap would be the best thing since sliced bread!!  Think of all the people that would start spending again.  Let’s take it one step further glu and reintroduce cool-down!

    Just remember this, if your complaining about the “cap” and aren’t auto-tapping then your family’s prayers are being answered by glu.  Every addict fights when his supply is cut off but give him time and he will rejoice that it was.
    I'm confused by what you mean by 5.7 and 5.8.  You mean the round and level?

    Today I played over 1,000 bonus games without fieldpass, which means I tapped my phone over 10,000 times - just sickening.  Was it fun?  No, but I wanted the club points and gold.  This is probably a minority view, but I would prefer that Glu lean into auto-tapping instead of away from it.  Nobody wants to tap their phone all day, they want the thrill of opening boxes, team building and for some, playing WOH (maybe?).  Imagine if after beating D6 for the first time, you unlocked auto-tapping - where you could pre-set a lineup, pitching staff, timeline, then have it sim a certain number of games per hour, let's say 200.  If Android and iOS users were all playing the same number of games per hour, it would still come down to who has the sets (i.e. gets lucky or spends more money), like it does now, so the competition would still be there and most players would go diamond, which would be great for Glu.  Each morning you could open the app to find some gold, which would make every event more interesting because you could afford to roll the dice a few times.  Of course the game economy would need to be overhauled, but in my mind, this would eliminate the "diamond grind" and hopefully just leave the fun aspects of the game.  I'm sure this will never happen, but a guy can dream.

    This idea has been floated around....lol!
    If you're not having fun, you're losing.
  • CanadaCubsCanadaCubs Registered Users, Member 937 Posts
    @SandlotGuru, it's a great concept.  But we all know this game is structured in a casino-like fashion. They want the user hooked deep into it. They want you constantly engaged and finding new ways to acquire your money.  Glu is also fully aware of autotap, and who uses it.  It's a straight up money maker for them

  • JEDDDOGGYJEDDDOGGY Registered Users, Member 2,386 Posts
    TSB has become more and more about simming a bunch of games than playing. Slugfest was a manual mode, but gets super repetitive so most don't care for it. WOH is a manual mode, but I feel like its become less 'coveted' for lack of a better term. CvC could be more of a manual mode, but people essentially just sim rounds over and over. TB is something new that is manual. But, the main game modes are about just simming games over and over.

    Give us that manual play h2h tournaments type of stuff people have talked about. Something new to manual play. You want people simming games to score club points and give them free gold every 1000 games they're going to be autotapping their hind ends off. Don't act surprised lol. Maybe in retrospect the better thing would have just not even have a sim mode and manual play everything and have a 50 game manual d6 cycle or something. That sounds so weird to even say that- a TSB with no simming. But, I can't imagine I would like the game less if we were all forced to actually manually play stuff instead of writing computer programs to automatically tap the screen while you do your desk job, or sleep.

    If guys want to be mad they should be mad at the devs that have helped certain buttplugs cheat for the past few years. Especially the ones that keep snitching on other cheaters so their cheating gets swept under the rug 🤷‍♂️

    The only thing I’d say to this. If glu was letting everyone auto tap do you really think they’d keep the gold, or that much gold in the D6 playoff? Gold has already lost a ton of value based on the horrendous odds. If they were letting everyone get 3-4 cycles a day, you’d be lucky if they gave you 1k got completing the playoff and odds would be 1/100k for a atg.

    "I have someone that will jail them all" - this coming from what used to be the biggest cheater club in the game. 



    Joe talking about taking advantage of the sandkings being jailed..



    Joe again (aka kaylastrong) complaining to devs about autotapping.. 



    Joe mapping out how they are going to cheat even though he's complaining about other clubs doing these things.. 



    This one is just funny, but the nature of the tweet is related. 


    Like I said, these devs have all sorts of backdoors open for their pets that the majority of us don't have access to. I won't for a minute blame a player for trying to get over on this game in its current state (spending 400k gold in a weekend to not land certain guys, for example) when there are employees behind the game helping players get over. 

    Maybe if it didn't cost $1,000 or two weeks of cycling d6 all day in order to land a weekend full of sets..

    I agree with most of this except that last bit. No one ever really wins except Glu.

    Food for thought - there are guys getting help from devs to cheat while the rest of the game can't even get a coherent response from CS.
