So I'm stuck in the AS level hell that we all love so much. I'm 1-3 in games tonight where my opponent didn't quit before a pitch was thrown and in those 4 games I have 38 hits compared to my opponent's 41. So things are pretty even.
However, I've noticed that games in AS difficulty are basically decided by who the RNGods just decide to give HRs to and in those 4 games my opponent's have HRs on 17/41 hits compared to me having a HR on 5/38. In one game, at one point, I was losing to a guy because I had 14 hits and ZERO HRs compared to him having a HR on 6/10 hits. And it wasn't that he was putting better swings on the ball. I had three perfect swings for 3 singles while he had HRs on a "just early" swing and an "early" swing.
I understand that baseball involves some "luck" or "chance" or whatever you want to call it. But it just seems weird that year after year we accept a game where that luck is the major deciding factor in everything but the highest difficulties (and even in those a lot of times too).
