AL West Showdown

SDS

I know this forum is saturated with Showdown hate, but I will add to it a little bit.
Just failed the AL West showdown for the 6th time. Only advanced past Hendricks once. 6000 stubs down the dunny (not including the rewards of course). I think it says more about me as a player than the game itself, but GD I am sick of flying out all the time.
Still, I'm a sucker. Will try once more and then back to MTO for me to get Gallo.

SDS

My advice. Stack alot of lefties.. cuz showdowns are Ohtani and Verlander .
To me Ohtani is harder than Verlander..
I've beat this enough to get Olson, Ohtani and Correa.. doing it 1 last time to get Houston and As TA to 70 each..
Silver hitters, Seager & La Stella rake for me in this.
Get 1 silver pitcher and possibly 2 high silver Relievers.

Facts I got 1 more run and I'll have Correa I already have Gallo but will need to grind again to get Olson too.I started the last Showdown down 6 runs but manage to win it after only 2 outs so I was happy about that

Thats dope. Good job. Those last 3 outs when losing the showdown are intense lol

Im mad that I cant hit with Olson lol his defense is great. But I just finished getting Rizzo.

SDS

Ohtani is definitely tougher than Verlander.

Don't feel bad man I just went into the final boss challenge against Verlander with 11 runs and lost..... That's the last time I'm picking Clear For Takeoff perk which boosts exit velo on first two pitches because I was swinging and missing early on and his confidence grew and grew.

Make sure you get an ohtani for the final challenge. Makes it way easier.

SDS

Ok, I got past Ohtani and only used three outs. Crazy. Wish me luck for the remainder.

SDS

The AL West is by far the easiest showdown to complete.

SDS

That's what makes this so frustrating. It feels like should be easy, but I keep getting dumped out.

SDS

The AL Central was a pain though, with Kopech as the final boss; Verly throws a ton of balls so he’s easier to drain. Also the West has lots of good hitters compared to the Central, if you can get Edgar Martinez, take him even as a RH

I've done 8 total and no gold or diamonds in any of those packs.

SDS

Biggest key to the bosses is swing with two strikes. Make the pitchers throw tons of strikes. Plus showdown is annoying because of two things, great defense and the pitchers ability to dot .

SDS

Are the divisions easier than the first inning? I’ve tried divisions twice and got to the final boss each time (only to lose). I did the AL Central and NL West. I’ve tried the first inning many times with no luck. I think I’ve got to the final boss once.

So are divisions easier than first inning? How would you rank the ease of the division showdowns?

I gotta disagree, the NL central having Hader as the final boss. I hate hitting lefties, but when he throws 90% fastballs and gets gassed really quick it becomes pretty doable.

The AL West has so many amazing bats though, and I’ve found the moments in between to have easier requirements as well.

Hendriks, Ohtani, and Verlander are all super easy to score off too.

SDS

I lost the AL West one first time I tried didn’t even get past the first mini boss.

Beat the AL Central and NL Central all the way through the first time I tried.

To each their own I guess!
