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!
Played a 25 inning game when it first came out and lost by one run.
Holy [censored]. So sorry you experienced that. Thank God you won, that dude's night is probably ruined
Then just to show how inconsistent and fluky that was, the next two games:
7 runs in 3 Inn. Guy quits
6 runs in 2 Inn. Guy quits
I won a 20 inning game earlier this year that only went to extra innings after I hit a game tying HR when I was down to my last strike in the ninth. I bet my opponent was really cursing himself for not making one more good pitch lol
Best part about all of this is that you named your CAP Mike Honcho!
Wow, I had a 15 inning game, Hersh had 14Ks in 8IP and Marichal had 9Ks in 4IP, Wagner had 3Ks in 1IP and Fingers had 5Ks in 2IP.
Those lone extra inning games can get so frustrating
Think my longest game has been 13 this year.
That is a lot of K's on All Star, jeez. Has to be blind swinging. Power swing using directional or something.
