    Swaying pitches....

    I am not really sure how this process works. When i actually "sway" a pitch does it move to 'high" to "very high"? I never actually see it change. IS there a benefit to swaying pitches? It seems like the risk reward to pretty low. Not like last year where you could get a huge point bonus for swaying a recruit.

    Any thoughts?

    You can tell by his reaction if it worked. IE "I'm not changing my mind" means the sway failed, while "My dad says the same thing. I guess you're both right" means it succeeded. A success means that it'll change his feelings like the High -> Very High you mentioned.

    It's good to sway him if you don't have enough good pitches for a visit or if it's early in the season and you'll be able to take advantage of the better pitch for multiple weeks.

    More important for recruiting visit focuses than points at the time. It will help you get more points in future phone calls if you can sway the recruit though.

    I've swayed recruits from Very Low to Average and Low to High in one attempt before. You can always look at the screen after the call and it'll tell you whether the sway was successful.

    swaying pitches can be huge! Especially if your team only has a handful of high rated topics.

    I've actually swayed pitches to the point of having 3 ranked at Most. So it can definitely be beneficial.
