Let me start off by saying I'm not complaining. This is my first year playing the game and for the most part I'm enjoying it. I've managed to grind the complete collection halfway into gold with no extra money spent and a bit of luck in some great pack pulls. But.. I am at a total loss when it comes to hitting in ranked. I'm just trying to figure out what is being asked of me, or what the parameters are.. I just lost a game ( I lose a lot of games) after my opponent who was bronze feildin a much weaker team couldn't touch my kerry Wood for 5 innings... At one poin I think I had 11 k's in a row.. then he started to crush everything, no fouls, no pop ups, no grounders, only hr's and perfect gappers even on balls even outside and away... meanwhile I can't touch his rookie 82 Seaver. I'm sitting high, and still can do nothing with the high fb when it comes in and it's only coming at 92-94.
I'll go into the current prime and sig event and hit ok, and sometimes in ranked I hit ok.. sometimes I may as well be playing a different game. From a programming standpoint how is this happening? Does the computer try to handicap the stronger team? How can two games in the same division look so different? I played on egamer earlier where I lost 1-0. I had two or 3 hits, he had 1 (solo hr) and I think we had 30k's between us.
I have made absolutely 0 progress in ranked, i win, I lose, I don;t really progress. I doubt I'll ever get to WS and frankly I don't understand how people can.
Am I the only one who's having a difficult time here? If there are other's what have you done that has helped? What do you're game box's look like? Few runs, hits, k's?
