    I have 102 fans, but it says I can't collect the rewards for 50 and 100 fans because I don't have enough fans..

    A loaded question, but I just have to ask because of the sudden appearance of all these super accounts that are from the same region of the world.

    Serramonte, are you sure folks aren't playing with hacked accounts? I can understand folks putting in around 1000.00 to jump start an account, but these folks seem to be putting in well above that amount, and even a gamer or enthusiastic IT person wouldn't be that insane to spend that much money, and to put so much personal time into a smartphone game. If they had that much money to waste and splurge, they do have to work to earn it somehow, and real life work appears to be something they really don't do much of. 

    Hope you don't take my question as an attack on FTB or the developers, as it isn't. All around, you guys are working hard to make this product successful. However, like many others who play apps regularly, I've seen this happen many times in other games, and seeing this here, now, is like Deja Vu for me.


    Hey there,

    We aren't aware of any users that are using any hacked accounts but there are users that spent a great amount of money, 1 in particular, if you have seen the comments of other users in the forum, who has all of his players at level 50 already. This user did spend a huge amount of money and it shows that in our system.

    Very minor thing, but I'm pretty sure Juan Francisco's player picture is Francisco Liriano.


    Hey Jay,
    We found and fixed the bug causing this visual error but it might not show until we release the new version of the game.
    Thanks!

    Hi Serramonte,

    Thanks for replying, there is another, a level 12.  Probably the same person.  Same methodology and steps towards account building. If you want the name, I'll PM you.

    Thanks - I've checked into them and everything is normal as those specific users have put a great amount of money into the game.

    Hey guys!

    Really enjoying the game - just wondered whether Ortiz is actually in the game? I know the free agent list is random but I've been looking for him for a week and he's not popped up once when I've been on (which has been quite a lot). Cheers for the reply!

    Best Wishes,

    Z

    Edit - See he's now available as limited edition! Awesome. Many thanks! :)

    I'm going with free agency is broken here's some rough number

    24 - Days Game has been out
    20 - Number of Free Agents per hour per server
    23,040 - Total Free Agents since game was released
    2,340 - Number of players mlb.com lists as active
    750 - Players on 25 man rosters (30 teams)
    30.72 - Approx number of times we should have seen each player.
    0 - Number of combined sightings of those players besides Special Edition

    Hey guys,
    Ortiz is in the list now - Tanaka and Encarnación have been out but it's possible that they weren't yet on your server. If not, they will be.
    Ellisbury is not in the game at this time for the reasons mentioned before.

    Thanks,

    That's great! Cheers for the update. I'd be interested to hear if anyone has actually seen Edwin on the free agent list. He seems to be more elusive than bigfoot :P

    Is finishing the quests the only way to get cash?

    Ive been keeping track and my cash doesnt go up after any win, but I lose up to 300,000 every time someone beats me. Its near impossible to collect cash and get players unless this is on purpose to force people to buy gold coins.


    You don't get money for each match you get money for winning x games in a day, consecutive wins and total wins

    www.fromthebenchgames.com/forums/index.php?topic=54085.0

    That's a thread that someone started it will give you a good idea of what it takes to make money. The fastest way is with a long winning streak but it's complicated with getting challenged.

    Hey Andrew,
    Since, in baseball, they're having the All-Star games this is why we are doing this voting now. I will write this down as a suggestion so they can look into continuing with it even after the All-Star games.
    Thanks,

    The games are based on a very specific algorythm to make it seem as real as possible.
    Of course, in real baseball, the best team doesn't always win - but it's also based on the players your opponent has, what level
    they're at - which means that if they're had a higher level with more points than yours, they have an extra advantage.

    That's the algorythm - but of course - it's always possible that something goes wrong, and this is when we rely on you guys to let us know if there is any possible issue.

    How much lower is their score? The next time this happens, can you please send us a screenshot so we can check into it? Thanks!

    I've seen him on "Toronto" teams, just never in the FA list. He must start on a limited percentage of Toronto teams. It would be cool if teams could offer players up to the FA list and receive (a percentage of) the cash that those players draw in Free Agency.

    This is something we're already looking into but we're not sure if/when it would be implemented into the future versions.

    He was on my Toronto team when I started out. Guess I got lucky...
