The better player shouldn’t always win.

That’s not how baseball works, and that’s not how life works.

Sir, this is a video game.

Exactly. Stop crying about a video game. It doesn’t matter. At all.

If my pitch is a dot with perfect user input, and my opponent squares it up with perfect pci placement, how do you determine which one gets “rewarded” (my least favorite word)? Or do you honestly just want a game where we essentially take turns throwing BP to each other?

Well, the #1 goal in a baseball game is to hit the ball as good as you can, so I would hope the hitter would be rewarded over the pitcher.

I’d have to agree as well. It doesn’t matter if you dot it; if it’s what he’s looking for, then you threw the wrong pitch.

The pitcher could be perfect in this game but he’s not the one hitting the ball.

Easy - regardless of the pitcher’s perfection, if the batter is perfect also (swing position and timing), then that should trump a perfect pitch.

Whether a fielder gets to it is a whole other thing though.

There are a few other factors to consider (inside/outside, hot/cold zones etc) but a good swing on a good pitch results in good contact.

That’s the theory, anyway. Would that work in a game?

Yeah I agree that a good swing should equal good contact. But I think some people wont be happy unless every good contact equals a base hit (or better). Thats the problem with the whole “my input isn’t rewaaaaaaaarded” thing. You can’t build into the game that every perfect/ perfect is rewarded unless you’re playing CotW where there aren’t fielders.

I don’t understand the justification of “that’s baseball”

In an online h2h video game, the person with best input should always win. If I wanted randomness I’d just gamble on baseball.

Borderline strikes 98% of the time called a ball, check swings, random results from the pci, and the inability to stay out of the middle of the zone as a pitcher have made this game poopy 💩.

Seems like there are a lot of people here who’d be better off playing OOTP.

The best players don’t win every time in any game or sport.

I could be an Uno god, but I wouldn’t win every game.

exactly like usually the best player wins, but losing happens sometimes

If something happens 98% of the time, it's not random.

Floyd Mayweather has a 50-0 record. Your statement is false.

Boxing has no random elements though. It is entirely up to the boxer whether he wins or loses. Baseball has many people all playing together. Environmental effects, umpires, multitudes of batters and pitchers.

Baseball is a random sport.

I know it is, that’s why I asked how this game could be considered competitive with all the randomness. True competition to me would be pure PvP without the game trying to simulate real baseball.

"Without the game trying to simulate baseball?"

This game is a baseball simulator.

I didn’t say the strike zone was random. Pitches on corners are way more likely to be called a ball than a strike. This coupled with guaranteed rooster shots lowers the skill gap.

It’s interesting that you have knowledge of the the trolling of this one forum member who is known for having many accounts considering the fact that you just created this account and have a grand total of one post.

Interesting indeed...

I will give you one thing. At least you pick different avatars. It took that kid Kieran years to figure that out.
