As I am looking through all of the posts, all I see is people complaining about this game. I think it is fine! Yes, fielding is a problem, as is baserunning, but I like it. Is it just that, as a die-hard baseball fan, this is the only game I have? What are your thoughts. What makes it bad for you?

Playing online, there is hardly any skill involved/needed. What’s the point of pci and perfect pitch releases if the ball is thrown down the middle and if you can hit homeruns on pitches where the pci isn’t even on it. Yet you can get perfect perfect fly outs all the time. It’s not fun playing a game where you have no control over it

SDS

The Simulation seems to take over the game.

The RNG is frustrating.

SDS

It random not really a game of skill. That’s probably why the gameplay gets a lot of slack.

Enjoy DD while you can. I bet it doesn’t last past 2021. With their packs the way they are they don’t make enough money survive the unethical business practices lawsuits theyll be hit with. Maybe they’ll keep road to the show and franchise. Maybe.

I played yesterday hit a perfect/perfect with a right hander and was a Warner track fly out to right center. I looked at the pitch and was low and away fast ball. Now many batters have opposite field power. So even though it was perfect/ perfect was was a perfect hit for that pitch and location. Not every hit can be a home run. No need to complain all the time just have fun with the game.

Random number generator. Like a slot machine. It’s the hitting system in place.

Do people use that abbreviation as a joke to mock SDS or do we know that this is actually the hitting system in place?

Connections. I would bet a lot of money if you were to take a group of 8 people and have them play on the same network, you would see very few issues. Being a video game with probably hundreds of thousands of lines of coding sure there would be some but not near as many. Does anyone see these issues when the devs are playing their tournament? I don't remember any from last year.

I would agree, but I can't. If they do, they would have to find a way to make money. DD is how they make money, via stubs. ALso, I would think that if they do something, they will o it next year, when they expand to X-Box and Switch

All video games run on random number generation. It's the equation that decides what outcomes will happen. Basically when you swing at a pitch it's like pulling lottery balls, they throw in hitter stats with pitcher stats, and what you pull out is what happens.

There are definitely issues with RNG in this game, some people accept it, while others blame it for all their problems.

I understand. But it's definitely not 100% randomized. It matters where you place the zone.

It does. There is some element of luck involved, especially on lower levels. There are times perfect swings aren't rewarded, and there are times swings with the ball out of the pci that go for home runs. But these get exaggerated on both sides.

I promise you, if I just leave the pci dead center and swing wildly I won't be successful.

That’s why the crybabies post their complaints, to help SDS fix the issues. If we all just accepted the game as is every year, there wouldn’t be much incentive for SDS to put out something better.

I think you would be surprised at how many people could take losses if they thought the game play was fair. Match me up against players with similar ping and if someone can beat me 10-0 congrats! More than likely an opponent with similar pings my user input would match the result. With the connections and matchmaking like they currently are it is difficult to get excited about winning a game 10-0. Was my opponent seeing the 120 mph sinkers that I see a lot? Was he getting good input for pitching and the balls going no where near where they were putting them? That is what comes to mind when I win.

Its not really an issue though. The game is going to have RNG. This game is chalk full of real issues, bad players on all star hitting the occasional home run with less than perfect pci placement is sooooo far down the list.

I'm fine with people bringing it up, just not over and over again whenever they lose a game.

SDS

The main issue is the community. So many want to blame the game when just aren't as good as they think
