Glu should be the one jailed! 1/5
I never leave app reviews but feel like I must leave this review now because of the danger of this game (this is maybe my second review in the last decade, with my first one being Tap ‘18 if that tells you anything). This game will steal so much of your time and money if you start playing it.
This game is addictive but after you’ve played it for a short time, you see how shady and greedy the developers are and you’ll want to quit, in much the same way you would want to kick a bad habit that is bringing down your overall well-being. It’s just a money grab and the outcomes are all rigged and predetermined. Like a team strength of 238k losing to a team of 115k...really? (this was in Tap 18 but nothing has changed in Tap 19)? What is the point of improving your team strength if it has no influence on the outcome of the games? Or here in Tap 19 my first place team (91k team strength in bronze) almost being swept by the last place team (28k team strength) in SEASON MODE...it took 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th in the 4th game to not get swept 0-4 in the 4-game series! It’s so obviously rigged that they don’t even try to hide it! And the customer service is BY FAR the worst I have ever seen from a company in over 40 years of being a living human being. I guess in today’s digital world, they can stay in business by hiding behind their computer screens while their coworkers pickpocket you.
Speaking of theft, they have ads that will randomly pop up while you’re switching between menus, and if you’re not careful - meaning that you should never rest your thumb on the home button while you jump from one tab in the game to another tab bc you could accidentally authorize a purchase using Touch ID - you will end up buying a mountain of gold for $99 when the ad randomly pops up underneath your tapping finger! And they will NOT refund your money! It’s so dishonest and ppl always eventually end up deleting the game once they’ve put up with enough BS from Glu (the developer).
You can spend all day getting to the last guy and then the video will freeze or the app crashes and you’ve lost all your hard work. Sometimes the videos to earn gold don’t even work. You watch the 30-second video and then you get an error message saying they need to verify it with their partner, so you never get your gold and have just completely wasted your time. And if you send customer service a message about this, they will eventually reply and say their partners are to blame because Glu is never at fault with anything in their game! Or even more frustrating is when they blame YOU for something that has happened or that you need a strong WiFi signal and that will fix all your problems!
Plus, the developer is known for randomly “jailing” strong teams if they assume you are cheating in some way. And they refuse to even tell you why you are jailed! That means that you can spend a year (and hundreds of dollars if you’re that gullible) building a strong team, then get jailed one day and lose everything (and no, I am NOT jailed in either Tap 18 or Tap 19 but I’ve had many friends jailed over the last year so I am very familiar with it). They try to take your soul and once they have it, they jail you so you’re left with nothing, and alone in the dark without your wallet! I wish I could use hyperbole to drive home this point of how dangerous this app is, but all I can really do is share some of my experiences with the app. 😂
I seriously wish I had never fallen into this trap of playing this game in the first place because it’s been so much more anger and frustration than the little enjoyment you get out of it. All I can do now is learn from my mistakes and warn others to not fall prey to this dark hole of addiction. Seriously, just read the other negative reviews about this app and ask yourself if this is how you really want to waste your life?
It’s really so sad because the game has so much potential if it was run by a company with integrity who cared at all about how their customers are experiencing their game (instead of just focusing on their profits). A good portion of Glu’s revenue comes from companies running ads in their game, so that explains why their customer service is so bad. Since they don’t really view the people playing their game as their paying customers, they can treat them like dirt and still make money from the companies who pay them to advertise in their game.
If you’re still not convinced about the destruction this app will bring into your life, please, please, please at least heed this advice: TURN OFF in-app purchases (from your phone settings) at least until you have played the game enough to come to your own conclusions about if it’s worth your time (and money) to play. But my guess is that you will eventually understand everything that I have explained here.
Used to be a huge fan 2/5
2018 version was great I spent almost $1,000 on the game. But 2019 seems to be money grab for the company. And the support is horrible. I had an issue with the game and never got it resolved. Their support just sends the same repetitive canned responses. Too bad, used to be a great game.
I love this game Because it is great to me also I play this game everyday
My favorite game BUT IT NEEDS WORK. 3/5
I love this game to death but it literally crashes so much I can’t handle it
This game 2/5
By jeff haårdÿ
I don’t really have fun when I’m winning by 10 points and the next inning I’m down by 10 points I only suggest this game if you have fun with almost every time you hit the ball it gets caught.
Big Red Machine 5/5
This is great, a well thought out game for MLB fans. Thank you!!!!
Terrible game 1/5
!!!READ BEFORE BUYING!!! Do not listen to reviews saying this game is any good whatsoever. Graphics-terrible, gameplay-terrible. This play-to-win scam lets you hit a home run with a couple of unattainable players, then proceeds make you pay and wait every time you want to have fun. The gameplay is nowhere close to real life and and the opposing players will turn into the flash mid-play in order to make sure you don’t get on base. Do not waste your time on this trashy game, please!
Best game ever 5/5
It is super fun there is not that many ads but I wish you got to catch and pitch
Great play can’t get off
Doesn’t launch properly 2/5
This game does not launch properly every time I load in it crashes or says try again. I checked my internet connection and WiFi I even tried using cellular data and it still doesn’t launch properly and fails. I’m using a iPhone XR on the newest iOS.
Game freezes 1/5
During play on the matchup club vs club the game freezes up often times and if you spend gold on it and have a high score it seems to happen more. I wrote the customer service and they were less than helpful. This issue has happened several times and forget about getting back anything you lost. They just give you common things to do as a response. The game has gotten better from year to year but it still has bugs that need fixing. My suggestion is do not spend anything on this game. It is not worth it.
I love this game so so much. 5/5
It is incredible their is no negatives about this game. They have everything that you want. Buy this game
By wilber the pig 10101
The pitches are so dirty they move a bit too much I think they should atleast move the pitch movement down because it was difficult to hit the ball
Super addicting 5/5
By THE FUDGEY YEET
I can’t stop playing!!!
Fun but very unstable 2/5
This is a really fun iphone app but it disappointingly unstable. It constantly shuts down and re initializes multiple times. It is very annoying. Also it consumes a huge amount of battery. You can play maybe 2 games on a full charge
Very poor accountability and standards by administrators and game management 1/5
By RedSox 04
I have never in my life seen such poor communication standards. I had my account flagged for no apparent reason, as they said I was involved with an exploitation of the game. I literally have no idea what that means, and when asked, they told me they can not disclose any information or tell me what I apparently did wrong. Also, they said they would cut communication ties with me if I asked about how to fix the issue again. I truly enjoyed playing this game, but they limited my account to just about everything and the game is no longer worth my time or money. A completely disappointing and discouraging turn of events by GLU. I guess their standards have nothing to do with customer satisfaction or loyalty. What a joke.
Baseballs Back!!! 5/5
Pound for pound the best baseball game out!!!!
Nice Game 2/5
Great fun but way too many bugs causing the game to constantly crash.
By Eli Beardslee
Such a fun simple game
Love but could use some more features 4/5
By thebest fisher
Iove this game I just wish you could be able to pitch what kind of ball u want to and also sometimes I wish I could choose to steal whatever I wanted to
This game is a rip-off 1/5
I am about ready to leave this game. They stack the odds against you. You have to spend a lot of money to be competitive. Don’t start playing this game. It is fun, but not worth the expense required to compete.
Best baseball 4/5
This is the best baseball game I have ever played and I have played a lot of baseball games. You should play it but it doesn’t have good graphics. That is why I gave it a four star rating instead of a five star rating.
Fun game but.... 4/5
Love the game and the advancement system. Graphics are pretty good as well. Plenty of free ways to advance your team as well as rewards for various activities. The team boost while your favorite team is playing was a stroke of genius. I am a F2P player at every game I play so I understand the importance of adds as revenue but sometimes adds on this app can be down right obnoxious. If I just watched 10 adds for your free gift bundle please don't show me an add as soon as I change the tab. If I watch an add for a team boost don’t show me an add after the game. If I watch an add for a free energy don't show me an add after I spend it. Its just annoying. Im fine with the 5-15 second adds in between games or switching between tabs but don't show me 30 second adds after I voluntarily watched an add because when you do I just close the game and restart the app which only takes about 5 seconds. It ruins the experience, when Im feeling in the zone its a total buzzkill to close the app multiple times. Time to playsomething else. My advice is to put a minimum time between adds if there voluntarily watched. 1 every 2 and a half minutes should be fine but add another minute to the counter every time I watch an add for a boost of some sort. Besides the add system this game is great. Would rate 4.5 stars if I could.
Frustrated Player 2/5
I really liked this game but ended up getting rid of it because it would keep knocking me out. I tried 10 times to play a game even in competition segment and constantly got kicked out. I cleared everything possible and still got kicked out. I have no problems with any other apps. This is very disappointing cause I did enjoy what I was able to play. The other annoying thing is the constant pop up ads which ironically never had problems playing but then would kick you out after the ad plays. I hope they look into this problem.
Horrible customer service 1/5
By i tap out
Gone are the days where a developer/company takes responsibility for an app that’s not working as advertised. If for any reason the CvC events don’t work..... it’s on YOU. You play the game “as is”. Don’t matter how many screenshots you got, how much proof you think you have, it’s never gonna be GLU”s fault. I have been playing this game since 17. It used to be fun.... You could actually grind every day without having to spend a dime, and actually have a good team. 19 is just one HUGE CASH GRABBING MICRO TRANSACTIONS PIT. If you don’t have a VIP tag, you ain’t getting anything free.
This game is awesome. I play all day and all night.You will love it to
Care for customers poor 2/5
While pricing for items within the game has become more reasonable, it’s clear that what those behind this game care most about money — not customer service. The two problems I’ve had have been left unaddressed with responses that make it clear there is no real interest in serving the customer.
2X Gold Videos 5/5
Videos haven’t been loading for me for the past day and a half. I was just wondering, if there is a limit of videos or what. Thanks!
By i dont knoe
This game is soooo good
SO ADDICTING 5/5
Best game of all time
By scams stink
So fun and amazing graphics
Good game to Play 4/5
By red forge
It glitches and the network isn’t reliable I been trying to play it and I couldn’t
Great Game 5/5
The only thing is it drains my battery.
How does someone win or lose in rounds? Sounds rigged to me. I consistently win and lose 5 games each. Had someone else download the app and they had similar issues. Definitely not worth my time
My favorite game 5/5
By lucas 🇺🇸
I love your game I’m a kid that likes baseball I wish one day I will get a legend player thank you
CREATORS OF THE GAME PLEASE READ 5/5
Great game but I wish they came out with trading players with people in your club
This game is so rigged. It takes no skill to play it because you can’t control where you hit the ball.
Needs big changes 3/5
Ok so I love this game it is awesome. But there’s too many problems!!!! It always crashes. As of 8/15/19, every time I try playing a bonus game it crashes!!! This is now the second time it’s happened!!!! Please fix this game now!!!!
It a good game butttt.... 4/5
I love the game and it’s fun to play but the pitches are stupid and it makes me rage a little
Tap sports baseball 4/5
This game is filled with fun features. Everything is good but the back luck I’ve spent over 100 dollars on this game and the best overall I got is 90 I like this game but tap sports baseball create rs put more pack luck👍🏻
Great but one thing 1/5
I like how you get to play with your friends, the clubs, but one thing, I wish you could pick who you draft. I could of got 5 star Mike Trout but I got some 3 star dude. I highly recommended getting this game other then that.
Yepper another year full of jokes 1/5
Be ready the last few tears ive fallen victim to this crap game series.....your first seven days will be great you can win score runs have a chance, your 8th (not joking i made sure to remember the time last year too) the A.I. Will ramp up 1,000 fold and. Even when i fully upgraded my pitching bonus to level 20 i gave up 14 runs in just 12 innings.....probably less that i gave up in my first full week of playing some 30 odd games
Attn: Apple! Did the math, and 4.8 is BS! 1/5
By Joey Phoenix
Tallied over 300 reviews and got an average of 3.1. This is your classic pay-to-win cash grab. Greedy company that doesn’t care about its players. They made some enhancements over last year’s version’s game play, but it’s just as glitchy, and the end result is the same - a much lighter wallet. You will literally spend gold on the game only to have it crash. Gameplay is nothing like real baseball, defies physics, and seems scripted to feed their bottom line. But, the customer service team will never give you the benefit of the doubt and instead prefers to hide behind the small print of their very anti-player user agreement. Why are developers allowed to behave like this on Apple’s platform? Could it be because Glu is a publicly traded company?...
Great Game 5/5
This is a very fun game and STOP WRITING BAD REVIEWS!!
