Griefing Rules

SDS

What exactly ARE “griefing rules”?

It seems if you have poor control with your pitchers or don’t give in on full counts, the game can be called.

I think there is probably a valid reason for this but considering how much exploitation, boosting, and otherwise cheesy stuff going on in the online modes, having a game called where I am just trying to hang in a game against a twitch streamer with a vastly superior team is pretty weak.

It’s almost as if you can be “griefing” if you do not serve up gopherballs.

I've only ever seen it come up on two occasions

  1. Hitting batters over and over in the same inning
  2. Walking batters over and over in the same inning

So idk the exact rules, but it seems to center around those things

I guess I’m a briefer then. I only hit astros batters over and over

I think total number of walks can trigger it.

Being that the event is quickcounts, if my opponent hit a leadoff double, if the next count was in his favour, I did not give in and challenge 3-2 or 2-1 with first base open.

All told, I had 7 walks over like 4.2 IP, but I was not plunking anyone or intentionally walking.

Considering how tough it can be to throw strikes at times, this seems like something that could be looked at, but I doubt it will be.
