I am good at Showdown, no I am very good at Showdown.
I usually win 4 out of every 5 Showdowns.
But lately Showdown feels more like a chore or a job than a game.
Whether it is the nerfed power, the game not playing at the indicated level (no way some of these showdown moments are Rookie or Veteran), the insane fielding prowess of the CPU and the predictable, back breaking double play ground ball at the worst possible time.
The joy of Showdown has worn off.
Last inning was a struggle for me but that was because I have never been able to pick up the ball out of Walter Johnson's hand.
The showdowns are challenging but the moments that lead up to it are too tedious. Last inning there were 10 moments plus a "mini" showdown before getting to the boss, that is far too many.
It should be 5 moments plus a mini boss max. Make each one worth 3 runs that way the moments add up to 15 runs.
I played the new showdown, but my heart is just not in it. The second mini boss adds something to the mode, but are you willing to risk an hour of tedious moments for 2 more diamonds? Especially when showdowns are unpredictable at best.
The mode in theory is fun, but we need something to make it less tedious and bring the fun back to the mode.
