I’m done with Showdown

SDS

This mode is so rage inducing, simply not worth the time or stubs. I played a game on Veteran immediately following a Showdown and there’s no way they put that mode on Vet. CPU fielders all have gold gloves too. [censored] this mode.

SDS

First time eh?

I just don’t want them to tell me it’s on Vet difficulty when it’s clearly not.

SDS

There’s something going on with it. I went from being able to skip straight to the end down 0-12 and completing them to not even coming close when I played the first few to make it 6-12.

Even the first boss in one attempt got the best of me. Oh well.

SDS

I'm also done with showdown since I'm done the TAs 🙂

SDS

Its so obnoxious i hate that they limited exhanges and basically force us to play that trash if we want TA's done efficently.

Had a run last night with 4 perfect perfect outs and 10 of my outs with 12+ contact on the feedback.

Its like the games like "no you lose this one so you cant finish this stuff quickly"

its almost too easy - i have breezed through each one, now the fun challenge is to start fresh right away into the final boss mode - you gotta put your time in no one likes an eeyore my dude

Oh I know dude. It was like that last year too. Distinctly remember Tim Tebow making an insane diving catch on one. It is what it is

Hate to say it but yeah it is. I was the first person to [censored] about initial showdowns being too difficult for the average hitter last year since those ones started on AS. This year? It truly is veteran difficulty. When I'm steamrolling through these is when you know they are not that difficult.

Keep working at it. They WILL get easier

SDS

I went 8-0 for the first time. I’d say I’m an average player.

SDS

I’ve beat 2 showdowns tonight with 8+ outs left each time. I feel like the pitching and hitting are on veteran, the fielders are all legend parallel 5 tho

SDS

I beat it 10 times and 5 of those times the server screwed me over saying it’s counting it as a loss. So stupid

SDS

Showdowns frustrate the heck out of me. I'm really streaky; sometimes I can breeze through them and others, I can't get on base to save my life. There's something screwy with them, IMO. Always has.

SDS

Yeah, this showdown is easier and shorter as opposed to last year.

SDS

Folks the times when you breeze thru, you got on top of the pitcher. With his confidence way down your pci is bigger and more of your contact is hard. Make sure you’re patient at the start of the final boss run. Make him throw lots of pitches the first few hitters.
The games when you can’t on base, his confidence sky rockets and if you’re swinging at the first strike on a pitcher who’s confidence is high, your chances of hitting safely are massively reduced.
Train yourself to see lots of pitches. Especially on the lower difficulties where everything looks like a meatball

SDS

I've had no problem with the showdowns until yesterday, when I was 0:4. I lost just one before that. I don't know if I was so bad or they tweaked it a little, but yesterday was rough

SDS

I will not sit here and say that from time to time Showdown cannot be annoying but just wait til they release the xtreme version of showdown in a few months and then you will be begging for the original cause THAT is HARD this like i said just a slight pain from time to time.

😂😂😂

SDS

This thing called grinding is an actual thing. It's not going to be easy by any means. Although it does feel like you're getting screwed out of perfect/prefect hits at most points, eventually you do beat it, just keep trying. If you think these are hard, wait for the Extreme Program (if they even have one this year). The better you get, the better results. Just hang in there.

I remember a time when veteran difficulty meant a decent amount of pitches were in the strike zone.
