Eck

SDS

Has anyone done the Eck evolution. I can’t get past the 10k shutout. You know......the one that’s on rookie! Yeah that one. I’m on attempt #17. Last time got to 2 outs in the ninth and he strung three bloops together to get a run.

SDS

First one I did, took a couple tries. Honestly bro, chase the strike zone early with as few of pitches. Get the strikeouts early while you have the stamina. Mix high with low. Fastball worked best for me.

SDS

This is ridiculous

SDS

High inside fastball, low sinker, low away slider.

SDS

His challenges are the worst, most annoying and stupid freaking things that could have been made for any player program. I know it’s a player lock and can go quick but when I first seen the multiple CG I never clicked on that card again.

SDS

I got to 2 outs in the 9th tonight - Olsen hit a tanker - I was at 129 pitches! I turned the game off and never again

SDS

Like someone else said, high inside fastball to get 2 strikes then low and away slider or curve, i forget which he has at that stage. You aren't playing against another human so its OK to spam certain pitches. Pound the strike zone and when they have 2 strikes dont throw anything they can get the bat on. Even if its 2-2 throw it off the corner, they will swing more often than not. Occasionally switch it up and throw a breaking ball in on the hands.

Follow the catchers recommendation. In the easy difficulties that will get it done

SDS

Strike outs are easy. The one I had a hard time with was the no hitter. I would get towards the ends and matt olsen would hit a no doubt homer. Finally started to just walk him.

SDS

I stressed over that mission for about 10 tries... Finally got him, inserted him into my closer role, and promptly watched him get rocked by any competent opponent in RS

SDS

Finished Eck 2nd (Cargo was 1st). I don't recall it taking too long. Just time consuming having to all that pitching...but keep at it. Having him and Rollie to roll out in the 8th and 9th is pretty good....IF...IF I can get a dang lead in RS.

Kudos to you sir. After failing 17 times in a row, I just jammed fastballs high and in so much that even I got sick of it! But it worked first time! Thanks!

SDS

It drove me nuts. I was down to the 27th out and some middle infielder with 40 power took me deep. After a few more tries I got it though.
