Ok, I admit it. I chased. I've pulled everyone multiple times but him

    Just my two cents. If you pulled and leveled Joe Morgan from WOH last week, then you really don’t need Giambi to clear WOH. If I get lucky and pull him from CvC boxes, then sure, I’ll level him. But I don’t think he’s worth the chase. Not sure any player is worth the chase at this point. Again, just my two cents.

    Agreed, at this point, especially with the quality of skills available in these boxes, no legend is worth chasing yet. Once better skillsets come out with legends that have at least 500+ overalls, then it is worth your gold and LXP. For now, 435-460 primes are solid enough for gameplay, WOH, etc.

    LMAO.  Absolutely nothing at this point is about “need.”  We’re all just squirrels trying to get a nut that won’t make a lick of difference by the time winter arrives.

    If you pulled....? I mean everyone got him if they played woh royal it wasn’t a matter of if they pulled him or not, it’s whether they played to level him and grind’ed out the LxP

    this is exactly why I dont like the late innings skill this year.   We are at the point where we have 20/20 legends with xfactors going against BXP pitchers in WOH.   They've made it incredibly easy.    I see no value or reason to chase or spend resources on anyone that is a WOH only bat.   I did level Morgan because he was cheap being a weekend discount and I got a free repull on him and he has 69/70 closing for me without a boost the last 3 events.    So unless you play for points I dont think late innings guys are worth it until the game adjusts.

    Even without an xfactor, a 20/20 dickerson(440 max) was a clean 19/19 at 5.10 without any additional boost. I get that it's a different game below diamond, but that's yet another example of why WoH specialists no longer interest me.

    Had Giambi been a 480 instead of a 500, I probably wouldn't have leveled him.  But being a 500, he'll be a solid guy for quite a while yet.

    @Mattattack and @DFBB make great points. My previous post was a bit of foreshadowing. I ended up getting lucky on a “II” box for the last CvC and pulling Giambi. He went 1 for 2 with skills at 12/12 and a Level 6 WOH x-factor. That one loss really pissed me off since, in my mind, there’s no reason he should ever lose. Joe Morgan was a perfect 3 for 3 on the day with skills at 8/8 and no x-factor. It’s a small sample size, but I’m already ho hum on Giambi. I’m sure he’ll be more than fine as a closer for at least the next month, but again, certainly not a “need.”

    I was very happy with Giambi yesterday. Gold team with skills 12/12 with X=7. Giambi was a perfect 14/14 with no video boost. Brett with skills at 17/16 struggled at 5.9 losing several times.

    I think 'need' is definitely a thing of the past for many. Today, for example, I certainly don't need Jerry....but I want him! Ugh! lol
