    My problem is not with the fix itself, but with the lack of notice, and the fact that any fixes in our favor tend to take forever.

    That, and the fact that there are so many fixes that have to be made, in the first place.  A little QC would solve a ton of this garbage before it is even a real issue.

    I just don't understand the mentality here. Yes Glu do some wrong things, but when they fix something that was working properly and people can't take advantage anymore, there is outrage lol 

    Such a bunch of hypocrites here.
    You buy an apartment. You have a key to the apartment that WORKS to open doors. All of a sudden, your landlord decides to change the lock so now your key no longer works. Get it?
    No. Because we all knew it was working when it shouldn't work.

    The clue is in the fact it's called first pitch lol not 'lit up for every pitch in woh' like the Woh skill from last year.

    When hot hitter didn't work right at the start, were you glad when they fixed it? Yes because you wanted it to work. I'm guessing.

    So they now make this one work right and you no longer take advantage of it, so cry like a baby?

    So we just supposed to not level up guys with that skill and use them for the 8-12 months its been that way, in hopes that one day it gets changed? GTFOH
    Lets also point out that GLU dropped a TON of bonus players in the Specials with this skill.  They did so because they knew people loved that skill and would pay for it.  So after taking your money, they changed it.

    The idea that someone would be upset after purchasing something because it works one way, then no longer works after they paid for it, is pretty laughable.  

    I would have never spent gold on Justin Turner, for example. Werewolf has been great for me in WoH. Even last Monday my Werewolf was still being used as high as 5.8. For weeks he was my top RH Batter for the event. Now I will trash him. I spent 8K gold going after him, only getting franchise coins in return until I got him. I would do that over again had I known this.

    How is it bait and switch? They never said it would work. It worked by an accident or bad game code.

    If you thought it will work all year, you are an idiot and deserve to have wasted resources lol

    Funny you say "all year" as that skill was introduced 9 months ago, it's a long ass accident
  • babyjbootsbabyjboots Registered Users, Member 361 Posts
    So it sounds like we're back to late innings, lhp and rhp as the only always on WoH skills?

    Dude, if you honestly can’t see why people would be upset about this (despite several examples already mentioned), you are either not very bright or you are trolling.

    Good thing they rolled out that new feature to see all the players we dumped.  We can go and review all the skills of everyone.

    My first pitch skill still works in WoH for all pitches.

    I'm telling you all he's an employee of Glu that's trolling us. By the way @spoc84 I do want to apologize for calling you a prick. I don't know you and that was out of line. But you are arrogant...

    I can piss and moan with the best of everyone but does this really make that big of a difference in WOH?

    Think about it. Your opportunity or lack thereof is already determined before the first pitch. Your first pitch (if a strike) is either hittable or it's not. If it's not hittable on pitch 1 it's not going to be hittable on pitch 2 regardless of what happens with your skills.

    I could be wrong, but I would guess if you have a hittable ball on pitch 1 and take the pitch, it's not just going to change to an unhittable sequence when the skill turns off for pitch 2. If it does, you can pretty easily avoid that by not taking the first pitch with this skill. 

    The skill is still active for the first pitch of every AB which is all that really matters. It isn't just the first pitch of every round.

    This is a big nothing burger. Still a valuable WOH skill.

    Eh, nevermind. 
  • Wicked0WildcatsWicked0Wildcats Registered Users, Member 928 Posts
    Small sample size study:

    I have been using guys with first pitch skill (usually at 8/20) and purposefully taking a pitch in WOH that appears to be hittable to  deliberately turn the first pitch skill off (maybe 20 or so times so far).

    I have yet to encounter a situation in which pitch 2 then becomes unhittable. 

    I just don't believe this really matters, guys.

    Don't have Werewolf Turner unfortunately. Been using Lewis from Monday and Frazier from this weekend.

    So many pussies who can't handle the debate that have to ignore me lol 

    These guys are the ultimate marks. Just expect the game to pander to exactly their needs and forget there are others who don't think like them.

    When they can't handle the debate or someone else's point of view they call you a Glu employee or block you. Quite frankly the lowest intelligent people on the forum and I'm glad I don't have to engage with them anymore.

    Thankfully there are many here who will maybe think I'm an asshole, I have no problem with that. I'll buy any dude here a beer IRL. But can at least say some of my posts have been informative.

    For the record, its still broken just in a different way. I don’t think Glu either knows how to fix it or actively tried. It may just be a side effect of some other change. I don’t care about any other player besides ML due to cost of leveling and this hasn’t impacted me in WoH and doesn’t seem to impact sims though hard to tell in stat boost. Once I have frazier capped i will sim games in and out of stat boost club to get better idea.

    I agree.  Too much glass bubble and entitlement around here.  I like hearing a different viewpoint.  I may agree , I may not.  I may adjust how I do something in the game by better understand a section of the users and how Glu reacts to them.

    I visit this forum to have fun conversations and to share/gain knowledge about the game, not to have pointless debates with people about who they think are the biggest whiners and blah blah blah. All that BS is just obstructing to the things I come here for, so if I ignore someone its not because I'm "afraid of debate", its because I am just not here for that and don't care to see it. Like flicking a gnat off my ballsack.

    Just like a true trumper, can't handle other peoples point of view. So sad. Says a lot about you as a human being.
