Playing Away Games

SDS

Guys, after another horrible game experience at Minute Maid vs a cheesy opponent, I am considering only playing home games online for the foreseeable future.

The guy declined my FQ before a pitch had been thrown, and I felt like I was held hostage to bad laggy gameplay as well as constant bunt cheese, extra leads, squeezeplays, my runners trying to take extra bases without me telling them to, etc.

Do any of you avoid away games online by scroll checking the lineup screen?

SDS

No......

SDS

Wait how do you check home or away?

SDS

I don’t mind playing away games, just not at minute maid. They really need to make it to where you can choose a list of say 5 stadiums you don’t ever want to play at. People that play at Minute Maid are either brain dead or are cheesers

There was no doubt in my mind that this guy knew what he was doing.

Both. And its worse than any other MLB park

SDS

I don’t get why people intentionally choose the glare parks w west time of day, like neither of us can even see the ball. The dev team really needs to remove the glare where u cannot see the ball. It’s just stupid , it’s a video game. I don’t want to squint and try to see a white ball that blends in to white glare.

Somehow, especially in the Event, I'm literally ALWAYS the home team, like 9 times out of 10. I have noticed it for the past week, so it wasn't just one day of playing. Anyone know why this is the case? In the Event, I actually prefer to play away because if you jump on them early a lot of guys will just quit.

SDS

if everybody backed out of away games then there would never be any games played. Man up and play the game. In real baseball you are away half the time. sometimes you will run into cheese balls and that sucks but you have to deal with it. You can't play on your home stadium at your time every single game. How is that fair to your opponent's?

SDS

Dude, really? Man up?

In case you didn’t read the post, I did play the game. It was a lousy gaming experience. How exactly does that make me a man?

Camden Yards got me a while back.. dude chose that ballpark during twilight with no clouds and threw Chris Sale at me with his 3/4 sling delivery...

I actually could NOT see the ball until it was at home plate... was absolutely miserable.

SDS

I was laughed at two weeks ago for bringing this up

SDS

I avoid away games when i feel the lag is way too big by scrolling

SDS

I make my home nice and hospitable. You will get to play in a minor league park, in the evening, nice moderate temperature. The host is usually 2-3 drinks in so already slow reflexes are powered with liquid confidence, a not winning combination. You would be missing all of these benefits by simply quitting.

SDS

I wouldn’t quit a game like that. It’s just the away games at Minute Maid or Progressive Field with glare or whatever that make me ask for a FQ.

Why waste time fighting lag?

Playing an away game is the only way you can actually tell exactly how much lag you will have before you play.

Away games where the lag is barely present at the line up screen are usually nice and smooth.

If I press down 4 times, have to wait 3 seconds, then the curser moves down 4 spots ... I’m backing out because it’s gunna be miserable

SDS

How do you guys know your the away team? I actually have no preference, just curious as I didn’t know this was a thing
