Making the game the most toxic and miserable experience

SDS

Decided to jump in some ranked today and 2 games in a row I play the most salty, toxic and miserable people in the community it seems.
Yes, I declined your friendly quit offer. You're looking for a game to play, so play.

Both these guys made it their mission to make my life miserable for declining the friendly quit. Taking minutes to wind up between pitches, pausing for a minute and a half every inning, stepping off, throwing over to first base 5 times in a row while I don't even take a lead. I don't know if these shenanigans ever work out for anyone, but if anything it only gets me juiced up to absolutely obliterate you. I honestly don't understand why people are so toxic, salty and miserable. Just play the darn game man. Such a turn off to play like this every single game.

SDS

The game is already trash and having to deal with that doesn’t help much.

Had a guy decide to watch a replay of his two run HR Saturday which came in the top of the first. Think I ended up with 6 HR's in a 12-3 win and watched every one of them.

I get a lot fewer friendly quit requests since I tanked my RS record and quit out like 30 games so far.

There are HRs you just gotta watch. I don’t get mad for replays. I even replay the one I give up sometimes.

I literally get a FQ offer every game. I haven't played RS all that much but I'm 17-1, prestige level 68 and I got the 12-0 banner with goat bat skin. Nobody wants to play when they see either one of those things it seems. If I would accept every FQ, I'd never play a game before I reach WS.

It’s an AWFUL online experience this year.

I'd be totally ok with getting rid of friendly quit. There's really no reason for it. I never get one outside of the very beginning of the game, or after I've put up a few runs.

If a person starts a game, they should play the game. If they wish to leave the game, they should quit and take the L. If the game is 5 innings in and a team is winning but that person has to go take care of something in reality...they also should quit. You don't without playing the whole game. There are totally viable reasons for needing to leave a game early, but not really a single one that warrants another person saying, "Ok...let's let this not count."

I've even gotten messages where someone says something like, "Hey, I have an emergency I have to go take care of." I typically just ignore it and keep playing, and they don't quit...so either they lied or they don't know what an emergency actually is.

Moral of the story...a lot of people who play online are just trash people.

Thank you very much for your thoughts as they mirror mine exactly. Very well stated.

If you’re gonna be THAT visibly bothered that your opponent declined the FQ, why wouldn’t you just quit? I just don’t get how it’s worth being that annoying. It really can’t be that fun, honestly.

SDS

It’s simple man if they offer a FQ before first pitch take it. It’s not that hard and will make your experience much better.

I do that too. I think it’s a nod to the other player that it’s a good game. Since so many people have blocked messages, that’s at least something.

I disagree with this. It is my choice to either accept or decline. For the reasons is stated earlier, I wouldn't play a single game until I reach WS if I accept every FQ offered to me before the first pitch. Sometimes I'll accept it, like when I don't feel like facing Kluber for the 4th time in a row, and sometimes I won't even if you have Kluber. The moral of the story should be that your opponent might decline your friendly quit offer and if he does, it's hit right to do so. Just play the game and prove him wrong for declining.

SDS

Offline player, feels good not dealing with all the nonsense and drama

SDS

I hate when people drag the game out like that. It takes long enough as it is to play a full 9 inning game let alone when you have a douche stepping off and pausing all the time.
I use to play friendlies with my buddy and we’d use quick count so we could knock out 2-3 games in the time it takes to get thru one full game. Unfortunately he quit playing and moved on and I’m still here playing vs cpu because online is toxic as hell

It's hard to combat too, from a developer's perspective. People should be able to step off, pause and throw over. That's why it'll never be eliminated from the game completely.

Honestly dude, you might want to accept the friendly quit next time.

Sucks, but if someone is already convinced they will lose to you and you make them play, they are gonna do everything to make that game painful. Even when you do win the game, it's not gonna feel like one.

Also to clarify, I'm referring to friendly quits when the game first starts, not when they are down a run or more.

Bro literally before these 2 games I accepted 4 friendly quits. I'm only ranked close to 700 because I played under 20 RS games so far but my record, banner and bat skin makes people not wanna play me until I reach WS where people don't care about that stuff. What am I supposed to do?

Problem is too many players looking to noob hunt or have an abundance of lefties and don’t want to face a lefty pitcher or don’t like the pitcher they face. Boohoo. Play the game, take your loss like a man. People looking for handouts all the time, afraid of a challenge

No HR is worth replaying, homers are far from rare
