I am crying, “UNCLE!!”

SDS

Have mercy on me, y’all. I made a thread about my slump before and here is another.

I have lost 9 of my last 10 in Ranked, bringing my record to 105-58. That’s a winning percentage of .644.

The winning percentages of the guys that I’ve lost to are:

.540
.546
.541
.555
.647
.679
.735
.554
.626

Only three had a better winning percentage than me, and one just barely.

I don’t expect to win every game, even against guys with a lower winning percentage. It’s baseball. Anyone can get beat on any day. But to go from winning approximately 65% of your games down to 10% is too much to bear!

Anyway, I thought I’d share my misery with the community. I’m kind of having fun with it now in the sense that I am genuinely curious as to how bad it can get.

Good luck, everyone! And keep your fingers crossed that you get matched up with me...Lol

Records don’t matter. Sometimes I play like I’m amazing and sometimes I play like I’m the worst at the game. It’s all mental!

True. I have to change my focus when the controller is in my hand. Right now only thinking about the slump. When I’m playing well I think about crushing the ball.

I gotta get my swagger back at the plate. And that’s all mental. Good point.

Maybe make adjustments. I was terrible at the beginning of the year...but now my record in ranked is 500. I don’t have a monitor but I have definitely been performing better sitting closer to the TV

SDS

Your takeaway is that you lost to teams with lower win percentages. I look at that list and my takeaway is that you played 10 very good players.

SDS

You know what it’s going to take for sds to get their heads out of their 4th point of contact? It going to take a baseball game that actually rewards user input over rng. If another developer could do that, sds would step up their game

Yes, they were good. Better than me on that day, for sure.

It is just kind of odd that so much would go against me for such a long stretch. I’m a pretty good player, too. And I put the bat on the ball. It’s not like I’m up there flailing at every pitch and striking out twenty times a game.

But you’re right. My opponents weren’t slouches by any means.

If these guys had a lot of games under their belt like a record of 200-180 or something they are probably guys that just play online all the time and probably try different cards left and right but have a main lineup to try and make WS.

SDS

Lost again. 1-10 and 0 for my last 6. From 817 to 583. Brutal.

Let’s try again!

SDS

In your defense OP, this season of RS of all seasons this game cycle, has been particularly extra sweaty. Good luck

It definitely seems that way. Guys are absolutely grinding at-bats and pitching very stingy. It’s been a hard season.

SDS

One thing that this game has shown me as a gamer is that one day you’re good the next you’re trash (at least for myself). Sometimes I just get doubts when playing these online games, like one game you can hit then the next you can’t for 6 innings. But that’s how baseball is in real life too unfortunately.

SDS

I’m new to online, so I set-up an “all gold” line-up (thinking it would match me with an opponent, with all gold = wrong, lol). My opponent had all Diamonds, but I was able to pull out the win somehow. My record online is like 2-6, so still learning.

SDS

I’ve won two in a row, y’all!

I wouldn’t say I’m back because both games were very sweaty and I barely won. Still, feels redemptive.

Thanks for the kind and encouraging words, and for helping me keep it in perspective, everyone.

SDS

Lol. I feel you. But the win percentage don’t mean [censored]. I mean technically you could play to a guy with a 1-0 record and he would have a better percentage: mines 45-17 and I feel like I suck
