Gosh, These Players Look Familiar?!?!

Oh, that's because they are.

Yesterday's 480 Dusty Baker is today's Don Baylor, just 20 points different. Same position, same skills. Two weeks later.

Yet ANOTHER Pitcher (legend) with the same skills.

A switch hitting catcher and switch hitting third basemen available the same weekend? Awesome!! Oh wait, they both have the same skills. Also seems like 75% of the legends released so far have RISP. I know I have several leveled: McGriff, Piazza, Green to name a few. I know I avoided several others.

Looking forward to new boxes was once exciting. Over saturation of players, especially same positions with the same skills, is making this way too predictable.

I get it, though. More players means more the whales will spend on getting everyone, only to dump 70% of them in two days.

Here's to hoping they at least make WoH fun again. If not, all I can do is say "Thank You!!"

Have a good weekend, everyone.

    I’ve said it before, sets are the worst thing that ever happened to the game. Game went from affordable to brutally expensive with that one change and the accompanying proliferation of bonus players. I used to get excited with one good pull. Now you need at least 5 to compete.

    I don't even try for sets any longer.

    I was "given" one by GLU (same as a crack dealer giving you free crack) yesterday so I decided to see if I could make the game more fun for myself since all the events I like are ruined.

    I don't know how you diamond guys do it. I really don't. I got bored with BGs after about 150 of them.

    Again, TY GLU!! I am almost there!!!

    Considering the vast majority of the people claiming to be "almost there" have been saying that since 19 and spending money well into 20,  I don't think Glu cares.

    Whatever. You would miss me if I was gone.

    I say what many are thinking and I don't care how it comes across.

    If it wasn’t for all of the hot ladies on global, I’d have quit 2 years ago.

    I only continue to play because I was dumb in one of the good years (2018)and now I'm cost averaging my investment. 

    This game and every single member of the Glu TSB team are hot garbage

    My favorite is them releasing players this year with the identical artwork they used in 19

    think E5 was the most recent

    I just realized that there are three great players available this weekend that are switch hitters now, all of which have the same skills.

    Add Albies to Chipper and Posada.

    What a joke.

    Switch hitters generally get nerfed with skills, but I agree that a bit of variety wouldn't kill anyone.

    And that’s why my favorite player so far this whole year, is still a max 410 player...double hot hitter Adalberto Mondesi...that guy still rakes in all modes, even WoH through the middle rounds of level 5.

    I have Ozzie Smith and still haven't leveled him. 480 HH/Runners on.

    Imo, he's currently the best player so far in '20.

    and yet he is without a doubt one of the laziest players in the game...as a Royals fan Id give up a month's pay for him to have run out one ground ball this year..

    I actually didn't know this about Mondesi, but he's been scorching hot lately!

    @2020KC

    The apple doesn’t fall far...his dad was a lazy **** too!  Wasted his otherworldly talent for years on the Dodgers, during my teens.  Same reason I never liked Matt Kemp much either.  As annoying as Puig was, at least he gave 100% effort — it was just misguided more often than any fan wants it to be, lol.

    He had one week.. literally all year.
