Is this game good? (Post rating also) let’s see if good played say the game is good and bad players say it’s bad

SDS

Trying to see if all the people complaining are just having trouble winning. I’m 830 sometimes I enjoys the games sometimes I don’t. But the game overall ain’t that bad

This seems like another way to divide an already divided community.
This will eventually lead to "git gud" and "little billy".

@foge011 i guess ur right. Just wanted to see if it’s only people that are struggling in the game are the only ones complaining. I’ll delete post lol

SDS

I'll answer. I'm not great at this game, but most of the time I'm a little over .500. I dont mind losing at all. Losing didnt make me hate 17, 18, or 19.

What is making me dislike this game is that I cant even make contact most of the time. I have to guess location and swing before the ball leaves the pitcher's hand, which means i cant react to anything else either. I'm striking out 20 times a game, so is my opponent a lot of the time. It's not fun. It's just not fun.

I didnt have this issue in 18 or 19, i didnt even have it in 17 and i was on garbage dsl for that one. My setup is mostly unchanged, in fact last year I was playing on a tv with no game mode, now I've got one with 12ms, so it should be better, it's not. I went back and played 19 a couple weeks ago, same setup and it felt great. Yes there were a lot of line outs, but at least I was making hard contact.

So, whatever it is, pitch speeds, timing window, servers. Whatever the issue is I'm not the only one frustrated and its not because I lose, it's because it's simply not fun in its current state.

Cs I enjoy the game. But man is it frustrating. Personally I think if people took a different approach and realize it’s impossible to win at the frequency of their favorite YouTube personality. Coming from other games and really only picking DD up in 18. I converted from Xbox to play a baseball title so I’m just happy to play the sport

The gameplay has a ton of potential but right now it's not that great. But the game will never get boring. There is so much great content that we have to thank them for.
Even though the gameplay isn't good, it is still super fun to play.

No, I don't have trouble winning. I will always have a winning record no matter what bs SDS tries to throw at me. This year's pitching is by far the worse thing I have ever seen in this game. I would like to stop getting matched up with people that don't have good internet. Maybe some day SDS will realize THIS is the main issue with the game. It isn't their coding, it is people's garbage connections. This can be fixed with ping indicators and ping match making. I guess their star $h!+ heads would probably get mad if this was implemented and they couldn't club baby seals with their garbage internet.

Have you ever tried using your phone as a hot spot? I hear that's better than your $9.99 internet.

It’s not the pitch speeds it’s the 12ms TV that’s unfortunately causing you to struggle. I had the same issue as you with a bad TV with higher than 12ms and couldn’t make it past 600 this year where as I was 600-800 consistently last year. A few weeks ago I bought a 1ms monitor and there is a huge difference in being able to read pitches and square up the ball consistently and I’ve already made it to 755
There are problems with this game obviously but in my opinion it’s more on how the game is supposed to be running (good input on pitches, good okays that should be squared etc)but are frustrating a lot of players

So explain how I didnt have this problem last year with my old no game mode tv? Ir why I can go play 19 right now with the exact same setup on the exact same tv and exact same connection and not have this problem.

Its not my tv, and if it somehow was (its not), then sds should specify that a gaming monitor is required to play the game.

The game was great week one. With the pitching and fielding issues you could hit your way back into a game. Now it’s a good ok fest, early and late is rewarded. And perfect perfect is either a homerun or an out. The game could be amazing but it is just not

SDS

People just whine and cry when they lose. They always have, and always will.

Am I guilty of this from time to time? Yep. I just try to be positive and realize it's just a game. Last night I complained after losing an event game where I had much better PCI placement than my opponent but he got 4 runs through jammed late hits and my SS not even animating on a ground ball. Oh and my C dropping a 3rd strike.

Anyone who saw the game would say yea...the better player definitely lost.

However that happens. Such is life. Get over it. The game has RNG within it, and like it or not that just what it is.

I hit 900 season 1 then haven't played a game in season 2. I personally think the game is in a bad spot competitively. The fielding is still has broken aspects. You can have fun but if the fielding bug hits you and it ruins a game...yea it's pretty game breaking.

On the flip side I actually enjoy showdown

SDS

Except it's not just people crying about losing. That's just an easy way to hand wave real issues.

SDS

[censored] player here. I enjoy the game for what it is.

I play a lot of online in All-Star difficulty and I liked MLBTS19's game play a lot better because I prefer a small ball game that favors contact hitters and speed. This game is feast or famine with the Homeruns and while that may be more exciting to Little Billy and the Wallet Warriors, it reminds me a bit too much of MLBTS19...which was by far the worst iteration of the game I've played since The Show on PS2.

Ok now you can reference back to the cry baby portion of my post.

SDS

Not crying, its objectively broken. I dont cry when I lose. I'm fine losing.

SDS

Yes it is. (Good).
