    1st "decent" Slugfest reward....  for those that need that sort of thing.
  • navyjack77navyjack77 Registered Users, Member 1,189 Posts
    Sisco's speed is devilish but his skills make him pretty good for most modes.. shouldn't be too bad
    Yes. And that’s the worst hit rating for any Max 350 that I’ve seen. The 350 Contreras from the last 2 days had a hit rating of 107 at B1. That’s 373 compared to 396 at D10. That’s a big difference. At least he’s fast though. 😐

    “Decent” is open to interpretation. Any dual skilled player with a 2 out skill really only has only one skill imo. This guy raises TS and that’s about it.

    The point is that it's a 5 star 2 skill player. Which I believe is a 1st so far this year.

    I would play it more if the prizes were better. I usually just go through level 4 and quit bc of the resources.

    Same lineup as last Royale. 
  • drsmartassphddrsmartassphd Registered Users, Member 2,005 Posts
    Exactly 365 days ago we had 380 overall prime votto as the woh reward and 5k pxp alongside it. Today? A lousy 350 with 200 pxp 🙄🙄🙄🙄
    We are all in this together! Santana still so smooth for Ryaole. Took extras but got it done

    WOH 5.7 advice needed.

    Alright, so currently I have four lefties that I could use for 5.7, but I was wondering which one would (theoretically) have the best winrate.
    I can choose between:
    345 Freeman  (294,283) and skills at 8/8(RHPx2)
    350 Schwarber (291,289) and skills at 8/8 (RHPx2)
    350 Verdugo (297,260) and skills at 8/8 (HH, 1st pitcher)
    350 Kepler (303,252) and skills at 8/8 (HH,RHP)
    I’d go with Freeman. I’m having to use Prime Belli against ZG. He’s hard as hell. Fun challenge for sure. ZG, IMO, is a great example of how GLU can keep WoH fun and honest without mandatory outs. I lose to ZG at least twice each cycling attempt all on my own. He never curves out Prime Belli. He just abuses me with the change of pace.

    I would say Freeman, too.  Kepler's 303-294 hit advantage is not that big, given Freeman's skills are both always on.  Kepler is the clear 2nd choice though, imo.
  • drsmartassphddrsmartassphd Registered Users, Member 2,005 Posts
    Scwarber isn't a bad choice either, obviously. I would go with Freeman due to the higher hit rating.

  • Tdub71Tdub71 Registered Users, Member 1,861 Posts
    On the flip side, once you get that first hit, Kepler becomes the clear best of that list.

    And if you don't get that first hit on your first at-bat, you might be in trouble, anyway.
  • iratepirateiratepirate Registered Users, Member 303 Posts
    Doesn't Kepler's lower PWR mean that he (on average) needs more hits to win than Freeman/Schwarber?
    He'll get more hits (great) but he'll need more too.
    Or will he? Kepler's SPD is significantly higher than Freeman/Schwarber. Does that mean he will take the extra base more often than Freeman/Schwarber in WOH?
    Freeman/Schwarber skills are always on. 
    Damn, it's close. You might just have to experiment.

    Isn't the pitcher we pay real money for always a bonus guy on Tuesdays and Wednesdays?  I'm never going to pay for another pitcher if we're only going to be able to use him for one event.  That's nuts -- spent $20 on Wainwright and he was only good for yesterday. Tagging @DFBB and @dustyhunksbecause you guys usually are on top of the trends.  Maybe I'm wrong.

     I hope that is not the case with Engel but you might be right.

    Baez is now 6-6.
    Who are you using at 5.10?

    Is there a chart for today’s WOH? Or at least a list of level 5?
  • iratepirateiratepirate Registered Users, Member 303 Posts
    I haven't even seen 5.10 today. 
    I cycled 11 times last weekend. 
    I have since added Wong and Engel.
    I'm 100% up through 5.6.
    I'm about 3-for-6 at 5.7.
    About 2-for-4 at 5.8 (Bote 0-2, Engel 2-0)
    And 0-for-4 at 5.9 with Wong and Schwarber
    I 80g boosted Wong and Schwarber on their video reboots.
    Wong even lost at 5.7. He's demoted to 5.6 now.
    Back to the drawing board.

    Finally beat 5.8 with Bote but lost on 5.9.  Didn't get a chance to try Engel at 5.10.  I'm assuming Royale hasn't changed??

    Sample size  is still very small, but I'm finding that Adam Engel is trash, especially on 5.8 Price. With skills at 8/8 and him at p10, he is 4-8 on Price, getting a lot of "weak groundouts" on fastballs. Much smaller sample size for this, but Foil Baez (HH, rob) is 2-2 and is not experiencing the "weak groundouts". The only explanation I can think of is the power difference.
    hmmmmm must be user error, Engel has crushed it for WOH for me since I got him - he is my closing RHB for WOH, between him and Schwarber as my closing LHB I can't remember the last time I have had to restart a round or use gold/video boosts (Mondays and Royales), I must of cycled 8 times on Monday and 5 times today already. Schwarber is definitely better than Engel though, even with the lower hit, his power rating is so stacked he hits back-to-back-to-back homeruns - basically all day. I place major value on power in my lineup, will take guys with slightly lower hit ratings if they have a large power advantage. Schwarber should have a long shelf life on my WOH lineup. It's funny because I don't use either of them for my regular or CVC team, Foil Yelich and Rookie Judge have better skills for CVC/games when you don't know what handed pitcher you are up against (both still have solid power/low speed, which seems to be the trade-off).

    Geez I’ll trade you Schwarbers. I’m Platinum with his skills at 8/8 and he’s right around fifty percent getting by Scherzer with a video boost. It seems much more difficult today than the weekend.

    "hmmmmm must be user error"

    There's also pennants, upgrades, etc to consider. I need to work on my upgrades.
    And I also commit too many user errors.

    I finally won. I finished with Wong, Ruth, Engel, Schwarber and Bote. I almost spent the 80 gold to reuse Engel on 5.10 but Bote won easily despite beginning with both skills turned off (HOT/RISP). God, I need to work on my upgrades.

    I then pulled Chance Sisco. I hope he will be a bonus player for the BG event tomorrow.

    That has been the pattern this year, but as I've learned the hard way, there isn't a pattern with Glu. Sorry man.

    I do have pennants at 45 for both and upgrades at 80 for platinum, maybe that makes a bigger difference than we figured

    So much for trying Engel at 5.10.  I’m so pissed.
