I’m curious about how many bug reports/bad feedback they got during the first 3 days to warrant such a drastic change in the gameplay.

I doubt it was bug reports that made them change hitting. It was the top players batting .500. The hitting was changed to quick though and didn’t take into account that everyone was playing on all star and really good players against bad or newer players. Hitting felt good and took months to get it there, only to be changed with minimal testing and good/okay center pci swings are the norm now.

All the haters say the same things with no evidence to back it up...let it go and understand that you are wrong

What is Stealing Cheese?

Probably similar to bunt cheese. We say “cheese” because it’s nigh on impossible to defend against, even when all possible steps are taken to thwart the opponent. I faced a guy who likes to bunt (shocking!) and his Vidal Brujan card went 5-5 with 5 bunt singles, despite the fact I enabled bunt defense and threw a pitch that was hard to get down. Just couldn’t defend against it, even using every tool in the box.

In a similar fashion, we have 99/99 speed steal guys who you simply cannot throw out. It’s either a bad tag animation at second base (defender uses the sweeping tag move instead of a more logical glove down manoeuvre) or just can’t get the ball there in time. When an opponent exploits a broken game mechanic repeatedly to gain an advantage, we call that “cheese”.

I have thrown out many 99/99 players stealing...you have to have good catchers and good 2nd/SS player. Also it is easy to deal with bunt players...throw the ball high and it will be a popup 99% of the time

Well, That’s extremely good to know, as I have Sandburg at second as well. I’m going to go and try and fix this “me problem” that’s just user error by upgrading my second baseman and catcher as suggested and trying to do better than making a prefect throw as fast as I possibly can.

I’ve actually found that it’s near impossible to steal, at least online. The opponent gets a perfect bar nearly every time. I could have a 1 step lead with a 95 speed guy like Brujan and I’ll still get thrown out because of the perfect throw.

I don’t really consider the bunting cheese either. I haven’t had much of an issue with it. If a guy is showing consistently that he wants to bunt then I’ll just do bunt defense like you said. That usually prevents them from doing it.

This 100% stealing is nerfed and glitched. I'll steal with Henderson and he'll get picked up and moved backwards to be forced out. It's really bad.

SDS

Hitting was not good day one. Or if it was, pitching was atrocious. Literally everyone and their grandmother could close their eyes and swing at a pitch and manage to get a hit, and that hit would probably be a homerun. Every game was 15 to 14 or 11 to 10. Are we forgetting this already? It isn't perfect now, but it certainly wasn't "good" on day one either.

I'm sorry but I have a really tough time believing that happened. I try to drag bunt with Brujan all the time and only get half of his bunts down in fair territory. When I do, maybe half of those turn into hits. That's why I took him out of the lineup and put Xavier Edwards back at 2B. If opponents slack off and forget to put bunt defense on when he's at the plate, I'm bunting.

You sound like you probably work at SDS in some capacity. Here’s my solution; you have your opinion on the state of the game and how much of an issue good/okay is and I’ll have mine. That’s fine. If I wanted to actually push the issue with you, I could ask our fellow members to offer their personal opinion on good/okay and how much of an issue it is in H2H play and I’m pretty sure we’d find that you’re somewhat of an outlier in terms of viewpoint. That’s also fine, SDS just love outliers this year. Especially if they have a sinker and a slurve.
