I must have about 5 wins to around 20 losses. I’m likely in the minority for this community, but wanted to create a space for those struggling. I’m getting pounded, nasty style!

I’ve lost more games to guys with horrible online records. I win more against better players. Lost my 20 win game to a disconnect as my gaming winning homerun was landing. My opponent disconnected but I took the L

Reminds me of one game yesterday. Had played 7-8 against the expected squads; degrom, Paxton, Newhouser and won most of them. Game against a guy under .500, with live series guys in his lineup, and live series zac gallen on the mound. Thought for sure I’d crush and game would be over before the 3rd. Couldn’t readjust to slower speeds and lost. Couldn’t help but chuckle at that.

I just bragged in a recent post that I "win more than I lose in Events". I'm struggling to stay at .500 in this one. My hitting is better than average, but like you, I'm getting slammed on pitching.

Yeah - I was 70 and like 45 in the last event. I'm 28-25 in this one. Feels like competition is a little higher or maybe just small sample size from matchups.

SDS

I havent played this event yet. Been playing shadows of the tomb raider. I'm at 800 stars for the 11th inning. The events are great to prestige guys but it is just so hard to get into just loss after loss.

SDS

I started out strong 4-1 and I've gone on to lose 5 in a row... Not sure what is happening. I generally pitch pretty well and can't hit a lick (its the first year I've ever played online). I seemed to have lost all ability to pitch.

SDS

I've been averaging 8 or 9 runs a game. Slugfest out there.

SDS

I think the lineups you can create for this event include some top cards in game. Especially the prestige versions. It being on all star and quick counts people are more likely to try and throw strikes. I have noticed a lot of home runs, but that’s pretty common on all star.

SDS

Yeah - pitching is awful in this event. Even guys like Prestige Paxton are getting hit around for me which wasn't even the case in West Event with same theoretical settings. I've yet to find anyone I'm confident in. I used to be able to dot Paxton sinkers/fastballs on the outside and inside black and now they are either going 2 feet outside the zone or sucked into the middle of the plate.....

It’s all star, you can’t expect pitching to be good

SDS

If you go into the games expecting to give up at least 7 or 8 runs then I feel like it helped me win a lot more. Al leiter currently has over a 10 ERA for me and I really only used him in this event and he’s still ~12-3ish. You just gotta hit

Agree but felt like the West/Central/East event with same setup wasn't this bad. But may just be recency bias...

Plus doesn't help when the best relievers for this are guys like Greg Holland, Wade Davis, Zach Britton & Rob Nen.

SDS

Like the rest of you, my pitching has been horrendous. It doesn’t matter who, where or what I throw. Usually pitching is a strength of mine, even in all-star RS. Wouldn’t feel quite as bad, but for me, it doesn’t feel as though I’m getting rewarded for good swings either.

In my experience after the first few days the competition evens out and the wins happen. This same thing happened in the West event. Thought to squeak out a win for the first few days and then all the goons get their wins and move back to RS. It'll likely get easier.

SDS

I had much better luck with the last event than this one. Getting lit up a lot. In the first few days of the event and especially on weekends, the comp is definitely much higher. I’m at 18 wins and initially had high hopes of going for the rewind pack to try for Goose, but will probably stop after Ohtani.

SDS

Well the event is about teams that lost a lot last year.

SDS

Well I think they shouldn’t allow cards that are legends in the Event. It should be current players, and there are enough to make [censored] good teams.

SDS

Having to insert commons to get a valid lineup means I will pass on the event.
