    @Thunderstormer

    I just stick to hitting the ball the other way.  It seems less effective than last year, but still gives me my best overall success rate.

    As for taking pitches...I take the first 2 pitches if they’re the BS strikes.  In doing so, once in awhile, the 2nd is actually a ball and I walk.  Even more rare, but does happen, is if the first 2 are BS strikes, the 3rd pitch is actually a strike.

    If I get a hittable, non-fastball strike on the first pitch, I swing if it doesn’t catch me completely off guard.  If it catches me off guard, I take it, as the next pitch is usually either the same hittable, non-fastball strike or a fastball down the middle.

    *Note: This is all based on my own personal experiences and not an absolute of what everyone will experience.  There are also guys on the forum way more qualified and with way more experience playing this game, so keep that in mind too please, lol.

    So the correct Pitchers for level 5 are:
    L, R, R, R, L, L, R, L, L, R?

    Guys, Spoc clearly works for Glu (even if he plays the game) - his new account has 26 posts and all of them defend Glu's existing actions against people complaining about legitimate issues on the forum. Don't bother engaging with him, he is just going to defend everything Glu does. Secondly, he is almost as ignorant as the lowly Glu employees who work on the tap game and aren't able to conceive a better growth strategy for the game beyond narrowing their focus to squeezing fiscally idiotic addicts like himself. It's too bad one of the mods won't ban him so we can continue with the conversations regarding our frustration with the game which we have had the last few months without having to listen to Glu employees like him intercede. 

    Oh and Spoc, if you think that Glu is wise to orient the game only towards a select few stupid enough to spend thousands of dollars a month on the game, you are wrong. I guarantee there are plenty of individuals who could buy you out of the world rankings three times over, to the point where you wouldn't even have your ridiculous opinions anymore (if you weren't actually a Glu employee), except they choose not to waste money on a game that has become such a money grab, it fills the mouth with the ripe taste of fresh horse manure. Wealthy people don't throw money away, they spend it on good deals - or at least fair deals - otherwise they wouldn't be wealthy in the first place.  If Glu widened the appeal of the game by not making every single thing a money grab and instead choosing specific items where money brings value (even while still having special items for "whales"/employees like yourself), more average players would spend on the game and increase the game's revenue - look at one of Glu's other games called Design Home (mass appeal, all levels of users/spenders, fair system of purchasing, and significantly higher revenue than tap baseball). So, go to the atm and get your bottom dollar so you can buy your boxes today so you can win two boxes worth of gold by placing first in the event today. We don't need to hear from you any longer.
    You’re a moron 🤷🏼‍♂️
    Why is he a moron, please enlighten us.

    @More2Most2First thought they closed that thread and haven’t updated it in a while. Regardless, I was confused by my modified “subway tower” lol, so 😊 

    Also per these WOH threads, would love to hear more tactical/strategic approaches to tricky pitchers, like swing early on slow stuff & late on fast ball or skip the first pitch on so and so because it always floats in on your hands. And please less whining self congratulatory droning that does not impress nor is it the least bit helpful.
    Btw @spoc84 et.al. Glu makes a pittance from pay to play whales compared to its advertising revenue stream. 
    Not true. For glu the last figures I saw were 72-28 in favour of IAP over IAA revenue. Even the most casual games are 50-50. The top players tip the game way in favour over replying on IAP than IAA. 

    Glu and tsb has one of the highest download to IAP ratios in the mobile market. Look I am no Glu apologise. I have said. I don't agree with a lot of their stuff I think they are dumb. But when it comes to understanding how they can get free downloads to convert to cash. They are genius. If they just had people who understood the game they could be doubling IAP.

    Not that it matters much. But this is why glu will suck off the big spenders when they catch them cheating. And why they insta jail a non VIP account for anything suspicious.

    They simply cannot afford to lose the big spenders. Their whole business has fallen into a model which replies on it.

    even VIP accounts that are not super far down the all star road past VIP get this treatment as well.

    I agree with all of that 100%...which is garbage, but the truth.  Unfortunately, the result is a frustrating game to play for either casual or F2P users and a dumpster fire for users that are both.  If you want to be competitive and not spend money, you HAVE to be at Diamond and you HAVE to dedicate ample time to the game for grinding.  It the reason I went Platinum and Diamond over the last couple weeks, as I was tired of spending money (beyond the Field Passes, which I don’t mind doing), but I enjoy the game and want to keep playing.  I swore I would stay gold, but it just doesn’t make sense to be anywhere but Diamond if you want to maximize the efficiency of your time and money put into this game.

    Due to his spot on analysis in the very first sentence. Anyone who came to that conclusion is just as I stated. This thread is chocked full of jealousy and reminds me of the whole woke movement. Either u believe what the angry mob says or be skewered, regardless of the facts.

    I have only tried once bc the player is trash and I have 1.1M BxP. I got to 4.8 with Prime Verdugo. Tied the game at 10, man on second, no out. Thor proceeds to curve me out. Go to extras.

    Curve out, double, curve out, curve out. No chance to win. I'm done for the day. Not to mention it took me forever to get to 4.8 bc my Prime Belli kept getting curved out on 4.6 by Tankana.

    Oh well, I'm still getting double gold for some reason, so I'll download videos instead.

    This is the exact problem with the game. I've been jailed since Friday because I jumped to diamond and started cycling fan rewards when I saw the hot dog boxes released figuring it was the best way to get XP. 3 different customer service agents have given me the same canned response.

    @spoc84
    Your insight into the game might have been exactly what I needed to break my addiction. Reading your comments on how uneven the playing field is & why it is, and always will be, have me contemplating why I've wasted my time & hard earned money on this product.

    I am fully aware I am wasting money on this game. I have fun playing it. I've wasted way more money in a night at the casino that I do playing this game weekly.

    I have a life , but thanks for your concern. I will think about it as I play tap by my pool tomorrow after my morning round of golf.

    Read some of my comments. I'm no defending Glu. I have called them dumb multiple times. If they are smart they would make more money.

    Most of the top spenders don't even play hard Tuesday and weds because the acolades suck. They would get a lot more money out of me for pitchers or set busters on a Tuesday if the acolade was good like today's or Thursday's.

    I would say most people here are addicted. Or they wouldn't have signed up to an internet forum. Or at least have a very unhealthy habit to the game. So I would suggest you don't throw stones living in your glass House.

    I got the player 5 out of 7 times. I think I got PXP on the other 2. One time the game crashed when the box opened. When I opened the game again, the box was gone and the player was not upgraded. Customer Service said I got PXP, so I guess that is true. I just don’t know for certain.
