Just started playing RS for the first time on my secondary acct the past few days. I built my squad into something decent, still not great, but wanted to see how I can do and get my CAP some gameplay. The low levels of RS when you first enter in usually a breeze.
Start off 5-0. Don’t think a game got past the 4th inning. Everyone quit. Next game my hitting goes into one of those perfect-perfect/Good-Good ruts where nothing goes out or lands. My opponent has a legit squad with Mantle and every ball he puts in play leaves. 5-1 record now.
Next two I get two early quits again. 7-1. Now I match up vs someone with a similar lineup to mine. Mind you this is 400s gameplay. We go 20 INNINGS! Every ball I was on was a lineout, caught in the gap or at the wall. Inning after inning of this. It was ridiculous. He had back to back solos early. 2-0 to the 9th. Score 2 to tie. 10th I hit a 2-r HR with Didi. He gets a two out walk and then a 2 strike HR to tie in the bottom half. We don’t score again until the 20th when my cap, Mike Honcho, goes yard. 5-4 win.
I struck him out 34 times vs 11 for me. I cursed about 34 times during this game. I am not great at this game, but I’ve been in the 800s twice this year on my main acct. I was better than this guy and it should not have taken that long. Blame it on the trash stadium he picked(Tropicana)???Sheesh.
Sorry just had to rant.
PS- Anyone ever strikeout 12+ batters with two pitchers in the same game?
Paxton- 7 Inn, 14 K
Kluber- 6 Inn, 12 K
HRD Ripken was 0-8 w/7 Ks!
