It would be so cool to choose if you want to be matched against people in a specific region in online play. For example NA-East, NA-West... I don’t enjoy playing people with bad internet on the otherside of the world...

I think bringing back lobbies would be cool.

There is definitely a regional matchmaking within the game already that automatically matches within your region primarily because 95% of my game are with people from NY, NJ, and Connecticut

I wasn’t around when lobbies existed, how was it?

The other 5% is what kills me... I hate playing people from St. Louis, Kansas, Taiwan, etc.

Lobbies were cool. Basically you just join the lobby and challenge people. A lot of people would hunt for easy games though and never play anyone that was any sort of challenge. So if you had a L or H next to your name for HOF or legend people would just never challenge you or accept your challenge for that matter.

That’s the negative side to it, but positive side was you could matchup with people with similar records. I also liked playing with balks on and you can’t do that anymore in quick matches. Also could set presentation modes as well, another thing they removed from quick matches. Weather is another one removed. I personally like playing on random weather instead of this perfect weather thing they got going on now.

Yea I actually think balls should be “on” for online ranked. Someone like kenley Jansen is glitchy when he doesn’t have to hold set or kershaw etc

The weather effects the frame lag

If they can’t get weather to work right on a ps5, then that’s shameful.

If you don’t mind, can I ask what region you’re in? I’m in northern FL and get matched up with opponents all up and down the east coast. Played a guy in Portland Maine the other day.

Thanks. I was getting lots of FL guys mid-cycle, but now I'm getting matched up all over the place. Lots of Puerto Rico lately, too.
