Just Tried to go from 15-0 in Showdown

SDS

I suck so I figured I would score 4 runs. Lost 15-15 after accidentally sending runner on second while tagging up to score. I don't even want to play anymore. Please tell me this happens to you guys.

SDS

it happens and then sometimes you win 16-15 with your last swing of the bat. chin up!

I don't know bud. I think I am showdowned out for a few days.

Same exact thing happened to me today on a bloop where my guy on 3rd froze halfway down the line so I panicked and mistakenly sent the trailer to 3rd. 2 batters later, I hit a 3 run jack and ended up losing 15-15.

For me I usually start 0-15 and it’s usually down to the last few outs and it really feels they intend it that way. Sure there’s times I get the 16 with 8 or so outs left but majority it’s down to the wire. I remember one run I scored 11 runs with 18 outs left. Pitchers confidence completely shot and he was in the yellow with energy. I then went eleven or twelve outs without scoring. I got good/okay’d to death with great pci placement. If I hit single or a walk next batter DP no matter. It was comical. I won with two outs left but after that I never took the integrity of Showdown serious again it’s a RNG palooza

Yeah, 1000 stubs is steep for the chance to get screwed. Just cut it to 750. I would have probably struck out next batter anyway.

Might be crazy but I really feel when you start a 0-15 attempt with too many perfect/perfects it no longer rewards you with them for a while. My showdown experience is exactly the same as yours. Quite a few down to the wire even if I start incredibly hot and only need 3-4 runs with 12-15 outs and still have a runner on base. The odd few I steamroll right through and win with 5-10 outs left. The amount of times I end up walking off with one out left is pretty disgusting.

At the same time I have an average friend in my party who needs to start from 7-15 and the exact same thing plays out. Down the the wire even if he starts great , he isn’t a WS player so the frustration is much bigger.
