How to Win Matches

Winning more matches helps you to level up and unlock advanced leagues and seasons. Here are some key tips that will help you win more matches:

1. Make the Most of Special Player Cards

It’s a team game, so you will need players with higher batting averages to increase the chances of hits, home runs and, ultimately, a higher score. So why not go for special cards? Of course, you will get a chance to collect some. All you have to do is collect the ranked ones that have a good batting average. I would recommend rank A or S cards if you really want to score more hits.

To access special cards, click on the Batter Shop link in the Substitute Box. You might also want to enhance special player cards. Do this to increase their batting skills.

2. Distribute Your Skill Points Properly

All three skill statistics—luck, power and contact—are crucial for increasing the chances of hits and home runs. Invest your hard-earned skill points wisely. I would recommend distributing points more on contact and luck. This way, you will get more hits and maybe a lucky home run!

3. Team Up With Your Facebook Friends

Make sure you have more friends playing this game. Add them to increase the maximum level boost in batting average. Make sure you have enough friends to be recruited as a full team. In the Lineup box, click on the + sign to add friends and recruit them.

4. Practice Hitting Bases

Make the most of the occasional chances you get to hit the ball. Timing is crucial and so practice batting to ensure you hit the maximum bases. Have a look at the mini tips at the bottom of the screen that appear after you miss a shot. They really can be useful, especially for fast and other pitch styles. The more you hit, the more you score, ultimately helping your team to achieve victory.

5. Arm Your Heroes With Special Gear

You will have to spend real cash (Facebook Credits) to buy special gear. Once purchased, you can equip your player with the purchased gear. Alternatively, you can spend in-game coins to buy equipment. BH gear is crucial to increase the power skill stats.

How to Make the Most of Skills and Stat Points

Stat points get accumulated after each successful match win. They can then be distributed into three key skills: luck, power and contact.

  • Luck: This is the key to increasing your chances of getting combo points, which are nothing but points accumulated with every base hit. Combo points, once accumulated, unlock the chances of hitting a home run for your team.
  • Contact: If you increase contact skill stats, you get more chances to make contact with the pitched ball. The more stats, the more likely you are to get your base hits right. When you win a game, distribute at least 40 percent of your stat points to the contact skill.
  • Power: You cannot hit the ball far as long as you don’t have enough points spent on the power skill. The more points spent on power, the greater the chance of increasing the range of your ball hits.

Good Luck Winning the Game!
