This is something that would be incredibly useful, at least for me. I always have a hard time deciding between perks when I get into the gold and diamond rounds. I know that it can be very situational which are the best, for example; if you have the gold "Ready for Lift-off" one that increases your exit-velocity, would you want the diamond one to stack with it or would it make more sense to go with like "Top Secret" or "Oppo-Taco" to pair with it.
I know that I've had the most success when I have a combination of gold or diamond Oppo-Taco, Top Secret, and Inner Peace or Ice In Your Veins (contact boost with 2 strikes).
In my opinion the gold clear for take off is the best perk there is. I prefer it over the diamond one. I don’t usually stack it with the diamond because since the diamond one is only on the first 2 pitches, that means it will only ever stack on the first pitch.
Best contact one IMO is the Diamond lifeline one I think it is - the one that gives a contact boost with runners on base. I like that because it’s good for games where you’re tied or winning too. The gold version sucks because it’s only applicable with 2 outs.
Next best diamond is Heart attack because it’s applicable no matter what as long as you’re losing. Then any of the inner peace inside edge oppo taco.
For gold and silver I also like that one that gives a contact boost in 0-0 1-1 and 2-2 counts.
For the other perks I again try to pick the ones that are the least restrictive and applicable in the most situations.
In terms of stacking anything, I prefer to diversify so that I have the greatest contact increase no matter the pitch location and game situation.
Lastly when choosing between inside, inner and oppo, I always choose inner peace first because I try to always look for pitches in the middle of the zone. Between oppo and inner, I pick the one that counteracts my weakness. I’m more likely to be just off on my PCI on inside pitches over outside, so I choose inner peace over oppo taco. Might be different for you.
Not bothering to mention the pitching ones. That guaranteed strike on the 7th pitch is probably the best bronze perk.
