There are daily missions as well as daily rewards which are locked behind ads, which I geuss is a problem in of itself, but these are also the only ads in the game, so I geuss that's a plus
The game is split into 'leagues', and sometimes you may be stuck on a league, having to play it a few times before becoming the champion, but at the same time, winning every league wouldn't be that fun, as the game wouldn't have any real challenge. I think the skill curve is not too steep and it's justified for what it is.
You can buy diamonds, diamonds buy other things, generic.
I don't really understand this question. I feel like this is true for other non-moble games, especially infinite sandbox games like No Mans Sky or Minecraft
"Limited" "Deals", pretty generic.
"Pay-to-Skip" is used in the form of watching ads for energy, but the ads aren't infinite, only one every 3 or so hours, and the energy is only used to skip games, you can still play baseball games whenever you want and they'll progress you through the league. You can even skip innings with an auto inning button, which doesn't cost anything and you can effectively use it to skip every game, it just takes longer than using energy since you have to press it 16 times and let results calculate.
There's achievements, that's pretty much it. I don't think achievements are *that* bad though, it gives you more to do, but are completely optional. The achievements do have rewards associated with them though, so maybe it can become an obligation.
The game offers player bundle, but the bundles are in their own section, but the bundles are still there, and seemingly overpriced.
I geuss the game uses Over-the-top Feedback with home runs? But it's really a short cutscene of your character running to home base celebrating, and there's not even a specific one for grand slams, so I dunno if they really wanted to manipulate players using this.
Unknown if this continues after the 7-Day beginner rewards
