Pitching and base running

SDS

Pitching is an absolute joke!! It’s like Wheel of Fortune......spin the wheel and hope it doesn’t land on home run.

Base running needs an overhaul as well. I’d wager I’ve lost 500 runs this year due to baserunning.

He probably uses advance all and overruns bags and gets tagged out because everyone in this game throws to the wrong bags. I’ve decided to make people pay for throwing to the wrong bags. When I see I’m going to overrun a bag I just continue going because 90 percent of people in this game will throw behind the runner aka the wrong base thinking they’re outsmarting their opponent. This strategy has led to numerous messages raging that I’m taking advantage of running. Throw to the correct base and I’ll run myself into the out.

Lmao, yeah baserunning if anything is fine. I can't think of a baserunning out I've made that wasn't my fault in some way & I've played 800+ hours this game cycle as well as 200 RS games.

I have had the runners go or get picked off when I havent even taken a lead or had players get hung out to dry between them because it send the player tailing when the other guys stops at the base so then you get 2 outs.

Picked off without taking a lead? Are you talking about playing bots/CPU?

If it’s just one runner on, I can do individual advance just fine. With multiple runners I do not have the finger dexterity to do what’s needed. I’m workin with sausage links here. So unfortunately I have to hit L1 but I do not hold it down nor do I have it depressed as a runner is rounding a base.

You sound like you’re good so maybe you could help me out on this matter.

I would advise to just get far away from the L1 format, it's a really bad system that opens itself to mistakes & chaos when you're simultaneously analyzing the field to see where the ball will land & sending specific runners. L1 is way too basic and rudimentary. I would begin as of today to start highlighting the runners with the left joystick.

Example with 1 runner on the bases: Move left joystick to the right, it will highlight the runner on first (it will glow/flash) press the triangle and the interface will show '2nd' to indicate it's direction, if you want to return to first just hit circle and it will show '1st'. Let's say it's a ball to the gap, & you hit square since you know you'll make it and he will go to '3rd' but if you misjudge half way or if the OF gets a elite animation and you've changed your mind...don't panic and hit R1 just hit triangle to keep him at 2nd...W/ repetition it will become very easy and I promise you it's not as complicated as this wall of text may come off...When you get very comfortable at it, you'll learn to bait throws to different bases by faking ppl out with the interface, but that's later. Just make it a habit to not use L1 (Unless it's a scenario where you're advancing everyone after noodle armed Lofton catches a deep flyball...then it's whatever lol)

Right on I didn’t realize you could hit a button to have a runner return. Always thought that was R1 only.

I have constantly all year had my runners on base going back to the previous bases on base hits and get thrown out on a force out because of it. Trying to hit and run is a joke with the runners on base doing the same thing. Trying to steal and the runners not continuing to the base and instead trying to stop and return. I have been playing this game for many years, so I am not a newbe, and no problem until this years game. Also purchased a brand new controller to rule out controller issues. Changed setting on the game and still the same. Pitching also a bad joke. Will go at times will not let you hit the strike zone and then throw a meatball down the center that gets drilled for a homer.

SDS

I hate how guys will dive back into the base if a ball is hit in front of them. Your supposed to freeze and see what the defense is going to do. Makes taking third on a ground ball to the left side impossible.

SDS

I'll try again in this thread.... can anyone tell me how to stop my runners freezing on a hit and run???

Got no Idea why your runners stop. My runners always return to previous base and has been no way to stop that. Not able to do a hit and run at all any more.
