    I'd rather hit tourneys to box cap and throw away Hicks than cycle cap and throw away Pollock 🤷‍♂️

    Being new to Diamond I am exited for Pollock. I don’t have enough tourney boxes yet to make it worth it.

    pity timer for cash box is broken. Bought 15, got no one.

    I just noticed the same thing, any chance CS will do anything to remedy this? (I know, dumb question, but sometimes I like to ask stupid questions that I already know the answer to)

    this morning I hit into a 3-6-3 double play on 1.2 for possibly the first time ever. followed that up with a triple play on 1.3. going to be a long weekend...

    Beat Woh for first time this year.  Second try at 6.10 with LaStella G10/4/4 + video boost vs Greinke.
    From my perspective WoH is back to "normal" difficulty.
    Never seen a 3-6-3 double play though,  but I did have the classic 6-3-4 triple play once yesterday.

    Yeah, to me this is set at the right level of difficulty. It’s beatable if you set your matchups and have your upgrades maxed. But it’s not such a cake walk that it’s no fun. And if you don’t have the right matchup, you could lose. The one thing I still don’t get. I lose more on 4.6 than any other level. Why is the difficulty on that level higher than at any other level?

    Is that Tanaka at 4.6? PLANT
    And is Musgrove 4.7? GIMME

    I do the old flip-flop, switcharooney here.

    Create a better match up for yourself against Tanaka and consider using the lower match up against Musgrove.

    Tanaka is a “plant.” A player that is a tough match up regardless of where he is in the level. I do my best to take the first pitch against guys like this. There is at least one of these “plants” in each level. Against Tanaka, I use a left handed batter that will have a higher probability of having 2 active skills against each pitch with the video boost for insurance. 

    Musgrove is a “gimme.” A player that gives you hittable pitches (fastballs down the middle; this particular pitcher, Musgrove, does not have a Change Up in his arsenal). There is at least one of the “gimmes” in each level. 

    In Walk Off Hero you want to create the more favorable match up. Not always because you are going to over power the pitcher in any given situation; but rather, you want to increase the likelihood, probability, RNG, that you will get a more hittable pitch in a wider variety of situations.

    Take the first pitch. If it’s down the middle, fast ball or a change up, you got another one coming. Wait on the fastball. Foul off a couple if necessary. At the beginning of each version of TSB you go through a tutorial—best piece of advice is to wait on the fastball. If you are getting big hooking curve balls or pitches that bite the corners, it’s a trap. Take the pitch until you get walked or have a situation in which you must swing to avoid taking that third strike.

    It seems so simple, and it is, but constant self reminders and patience are necessary for the big pay off. 

    Good luck, have fun, and happy tapping!

    This is the most fun weekend for me. Working in my 5th casual cycle pulled 345 Baez and my club is in top 25. 
    Swing or no swing you're missing that curveball.

    I have cycled four times and just got 27 and out from ZG on my fifth attempt. GLU know how to stop me, and that’s with blatant cheating

    Was about 175K XP and I was probably at 120K in gold, but keep in mind I hoard gold more than most. Get a weekday Field pass for the .3 team discount.

    Best advice is to add it up with the charts. Make sure you have enough to cap keepers and your legend too, along with whatever other guys you want to cap. I would also cap 3 pitchers. My two keepers and legend are currently three of my top 6 or 7 guys.

    I finally beat it for the first time this year at Silver. Cruz beat 6.10 with no outs. Not much of a reward, but I feel better. 
  • slafrance2slafrance2 Registered Users, Member 1,182 Posts
    Number 6 for the weekend. So much fun! I’ve spend more gold, but for the fun factor it was worth it.

    LUCKYYYYY!!!  I got to Greinke once... it was a blood bath.  I'm only silver right now though, so I wasn't expecting much.  Nicely done though.

    Gold players who can cycle cap WOH, please give me some advice!!

    soooo... this weekend, i dropped 42.5k gold and got everyone in the young guns boxes, and cycled WOH 3 times. put up 3 billion+ pts, but in the process also lost 50% of bonus games I played. finally, im sick and tired of that and just decided to go gold.

    i was wondering if the same people could get it done at g10, if pennants are only 40 and upgrades are only 40

    my finishers
    L: foil verdugo 8/8 g10 (1st pitch, HH), keeper gonzo 8/8 g10 (HH, RHP), 330 moran,frazier 8/8 (RISP, RHP), g10, ML 8/8 g5 (2x RHP)
    R: foil baez 8/8 g10 (HH, runners on), 345 baez 8/8 g10 (LHP, runners on), 335 pence 8/8 g10 (LHP, HH), 330 zimmerman 8/4 g10 (LHP, early innings, respectively).
    Yes. No question. If you beat it 3 times this weekend in silver you should have no issues in gold... assuming you get at least 3 righty bats and 1 lefty bat maxed.

    You should be fine with pennants and upgrades at 40, but I’d start saving blue cash for the 4 hitting upgrades. For me that would mean manually playing WOH.

    22 cycles this weekend. First diamond cap. 
  • navyjack77navyjack77 Registered Users, Member 1,190 Posts
    Congrats @JTPASTOR. Also being new to Diamond, I know how important this is. I was able to cap Moran last Monday and got between 25-30 cycles in while also capping Pollock this weekend. Now the fun begins....or grind, whichever way you want to look at it. Field Pass here I come!

    Oops, I meant 3 lefty bats and 1 righty bat. Just to clarify 😬

    It was a very fun weekend with a very nice WoH reward! Cycled WoH 26 times spending a total of 160 gold, and also capped foiled Baez (cvc box), Morton, Scherzer and Pagan (cvc box) at P10 and still finished the weekend with more bxp than I started with.

    Keep on posting how great it was last weekend, just to make sure glu reads it and screw it again.

    Dang! I'm about to have one of those I’m zero days old moment... what's a cycle of WoH? Like when someone says, “I CYCLED WoH 26 times this weekend” ... if it's what I'm thinking it is... which is 1 cycle equals going thru WoH all 6 levels and 10 rounds per... That's crazy!! I think I would rage quit and uninstall the game! LOL
  • JCAM80JCAM80 Registered Users, Member 492 Posts
    No one would rage quit being successful at their objective 26 times in 1 event. Cycling is a good/great thing & the best way to build resources

    No reason to rage quit, with the 20% weekend stat boost accolade it went very smoothly. Keeper Jose Cruz lost maybe 3 times in 14 cycles at 6.10 (and beat it after video retry everytime he lost) and Matt Olson only lost once there in 12 cycles. And as I said it only cost me 160 gold as 24 of those 26 wins at 6.10 were with video boost. Very close to zero frustration with the game during the weekend
