Optimism

SDS

Feeling pretty optimistic after the stream, really like seeing that they’re trying to create more of a skill gap, whether it works out is still to be seen but I really like that they’re trying.

I raved about the game in the Beta, hopefully it'll hold up and maybe even improve on comercial release

I would really like that. I don’t know how it’ll turn out but for me seeing the effort is a big step

I never got the chance to play the beta, how did it feel?

Amazing, as I cannot elaborate, let me say:

I might be biased because it treated me particularly well

Is it possible we could actually get good gameplay AND good content?

Or are we going to get good gameplay and bad content this year?

No chance we get bad content in my eyes. With a few exceptions, content has always been better from year to year.

Was it just me or were runners really flying down the bases. Those steal attempts showing off the new tag animation were awfully close given the low speed rating. Jason Heyward got 1st to home awfully quick with 54 speed. I get here's going on contact but it wasn't a running start.

Good/Good
I got a feeling content will explode this year with all the desire for team builds and pleads for more diversity.

They did seem quick, I’m hoping they’ll turn that slider down

I might be in the minority here, but 19 felt a little too station-to-station.

Catching stealing runners was probably a bit too hard, but I found myself not sending too many runners on XBH and throwing quite a few guys out at home on hits.

If you go in with low expectations you'll never be disappointed. I feel 20 will be dreadful, possibly a culmination of everything wrong with every previous The Show together in 1 pile of dung.

Pitch speeds will take 1 full year to reach the plate, every pitch is hit regardless of pci or timing. Everything falls for a hit, Minute Maid park is full of trash, ect.
