    My Alt account hit 2 mill within 8 tickets. My main account only at 100k with 11k max round.

    It’s bs it’s impossible to score points as a diamond team.  We all hated the special lineups the last time glu did it.  Why are they doing it again?   I swear glu is full of the dumbest employees on the planet.  They are destroying own game I don’t understand why.  What the hell is wrong w glu?

    The reason special lineups works is this. The special lineup is a maxed out Platinum lineup. That lineup will go against the EB pitcher at your level. If you are a Diamond team, that Plat lineup is going against a Diamond pitcher. If you are a bronze team, that Plat lineup is going against a bronze pitcher. That is why Diamond teams have no chance at this version of EB. I don’t know if that is what Glu intended, but that is what is happening.

    Makes sense as my team is Gold. There are also several Silver teams currently in the top 10 of my bracket.

    Hmmm.......that could explain why my Silver team has done well in the past. I’ll try it out later.
    Just a Silver team from the wrong side of the tracks, so what do I know? 🤷‍♂️

    I wonder how many people autotap extra bases.

    What’s even “better” about this special lineup is most of them have vs LHP skill and it’s a RHP. 😂

    Yeah,  it's a pointless waste of resources at Diamond. Just get my 100K and walk away. Screw the special lineups, I worked hard to build a great EB lineup.

    I still get annoyed, but ‘mad’ was sooooo last year. I’ve explained in detail why the ‘special’ lineups don’t work with diamond guys. At the end of the day, they’re aware and this is the direction they’ve chosen. As a diamond guy, we dominate all the other events so taking a back seat every now and then isn’t going to kill me. I did my 100k and I’ve moved on.

    As usual, @DFBB gives an honest yet even keeled response. I don’t know how you always stay so composed but it is admirable. It’s also a breath of fresh air with all the whining that goes on here, myself included. 👊🏻

    So basically it’s designed so that diamond teams have to spend an exorbitant amount of resources to get a decent ranking, got it. Won’t make that mistake again.

    Took 4th, no Mookie (wouldn't have capped him anyway) but opened 15 boxes and pulled about 40K LXP !

    Pretty much. EB follows the same mechanics as CvC. Even though we all face the same b10 pitcher, you will experience nerfing if you have uncapped bats. You can try it with regular cvc. Use gold/plat bats and you'll see a big difference.

    Don't feel too terrible Diamond guys. I'm gold and had to sim 5 extra games just to get too 100K.

    Every other event is set up for you. Enjoy Royale!

    Dude, on every other EB, your totals are much higher, so you know it’s true.

    EB glory could of been yours as well man. All you needed was about 250-300 franchise coins, 10k gold, and way too much time to kill.
