Hitting in Showdowns has be nerfed

SDS

NL showdown and squared up like drives with those like Sheffield, Soto, etc. are dying out very fast!

SDS

I have also noticed this. First day stage 2 came out I was at 100% finish rate for showdowns, in the past couple days I havent finished ONE

Lost to the first boss twice today on Stage 2 NL. Had never lost to any Stage 2 NL boss before today.

Yeah with 4 runs to go I got down to 6 outs against Wright. It’s blatant that they WANT showdowns to be very tough instead of an enjoyable game mode.

Tried my 3rd AL stage 2 Showdown, and it was of equal difficulty as the first 2 that I completed. I didnt notice any difference.

I thought I was going crazy. I am working from home so play showdowns during conference calls and had completed 10-12 in the last week without fail and then today I lost three this morning to Madbum/Yates just absolutely DOTTING Cutters and splitters haha. well good to know I can't just mindlessly rake in the TA pts. I'm ok with the difficulty being up tbh, just making sure I wasn't losing it.

My guess is they added a dynamic difficulty like in the beginning of the game where if you are consistently beating them, they get more difficult.

I’d be okay with that too if they told us. But [censored] I feel so bad at the game when I can’t hit on veteran 😂 then I go into the event and rake compared to that so somethings wacky

SDS

Is this something from today's patch?

I noticed that I kept on failing on the 2nd NL boss my last few attempts. Almost everything I hit was a grounder or a weak fly ball.
My PCI placement was the same as always, but the consistency was not there.

SDS

I failed on boss #1 for the first time on this showdown today and was about to come on here to gripe about it. My next attempt went all the way though so I’m not sure what to make of it. A lot of it has to do with what diamond they start you with imo

SDS

Showdown has been tough on me. Haven't gotten vouchers on any. Guess I'm SOL now.

SDS

I am not saying this is true or not true but I do find it amusing that after every single patch someone posts complaining that hitting has been made more difficult.

Not complaining at all. I would rather have everything be tougher to obtain in the game, but that being said, noting that the hitting sliders in showdown have been tinkered with is merely an observation. I used to be able to go on autopilot and cruise through a showdown in 60-90 minutes and am on the verge of failing my fourth this morning haha.

It definitely feels inconsistent between each moment as well. I am wondering if just the range of hitting sliders randomly assigned has been widened so you face a broader range of difficulties within the spectrum of 'veteran' between each moment.

I agree I think people just over react and then everything somehow gets back to normal

I wouldn’t give up on them yet. I don’t know which was the last you tried but stage 2 and second inning are significantly easier than the first versions. Also, I beat the NL one this AM for the first time after failing twice and this was AFTER the patch. It’s a lot of luck, both RNG and what cards you get. If you keep at it the bill will drop in your favor just enough
