Ranked is honestly not enjoyable

SDS

Not sure if you guys feel the same way. Not even saying it because of the bs that goes against me every game. Even the cheese in my favor is frustrating. Sick of these games that “appear” close just for it to be broken open on missed PCI no doubters. Way too many flukes this year. Somehow more than MLB The Show 20. This game would be much more enjoyable if good swings get rewarded over the bad ones, and I understand that in baseball you get out more often than not, but this is way too much. The momentum switches are more obvious than ever. Instead of trying to call me out on my opinion, any recommendations for non sports games to try out would be appreciated. This ones gonna be getting dusty in the library for me.

I'm pretty sure this changes once you hit the higher tiers where the difficulty will be HOF or Legend.

Apex is fun, and free

Get a pc, play games like squad. Plenty of great pc shooters that console does not offer.

I’m hovering between 750 and 850. Sitting at like 790 game after this game I just lost. I’ve been in this range for a while now and no improvements.

I gotta get back into Apex. I don’t think I’ve played since around when the first season dropped, but I really had fun with it.

bruh i made it to 700’s i’m playing dude on HOF i can hardly get a hit to save my life, they all throw lefties with sinkers in and sliders away. and ur pci size is the size of a pea. i swear it’s near impossible played a dude last night who got a perfect perfect and the ball wasn’t even near his pci? not to be a downer but it was a reality check for me, and i thought i was pretty decent at this game

THIS...I’m in the 800’s and the 15-13 score games rarely happen up here. Heck, My last game was a pitcher’s duel that I won 1-0.

My game recommendation is the two Star Wars Battlefront games. They are SO MUCH FUN. And they are free with EA play & if you don’t have EA play they are highly discounted.

Bro game I played yesterday the guy had 7 hits through 8 innings with no runs scored. 9th inning comes up and he proceeds to hit 4HR on early swings. “Good timing” goes against you in this game for some god awful reason

Squad or hell let loose, beyond the wire, post scriptum, escape from tarkov its endless. I think if I didn’t have my PC I would probably be more pissed off with the issues this games having, but instead I just hop on my PC and run one of the infinite games available.

Yeah I'm having trouble getting motivated to play ranked. 9 innings is long just for cheese and RNG to decide the game half the time. Plus the rewards for reaching a new division SUCK. You used to get like 8K stubs and 15K XP. Not its barely enough to buy a decent gold card.

I'm having a blast in events since I can use most of my good cards and EVO stress free. They'll inevitably make the even [censored] next time and I'll have to do RS.

I'm trying to figure out why I can be early on legend in custom practice against 100 but online all star I can't react to 95. I'll adjust and persevere like always.

Why do you think most of the top players do collections before they touch DD? You need high contact, high power guys in HOF and legend. HUGE advantage early in the game. When you are swinging with Tatis and his like 67 contact, 60 vision, they are using Chipper and Ortiz with 100/100.

I am almost at 700 and really not looking forward to playing Chipper, Ortiz, Banks, Trout, Soriano every game. It will turn into 18 immortal lineups which was very dull. Not to mention the fact their margin for error is way smaller than mine with the players I have.

SDS

The only thing that’s been annoying for me is the foul balls. It’s still wayyyyyyy too frequent on balls not even close to being a strike. I faced a guy last night who hit about 7-8 foul balls with each batter off my pitcher, I legit quit the game lol. It’s super duper annoying.

this right here actually. and their pitchers are all stacked too. but how do you build your team up so fast? i’ve got a pretty decent team but no 100 power/contact team

Yeah, I don’t even think I’ll buy a ps5 when they become available because they don’t have any good shooters that come out on console anymore. Last good one was socom confrontation and that was on ps3. Pc is definitely the way to go if you like good shooters. Consoles suck now for it.

I bought a series X pretty much for sports games, game pass and because I have some buddies who just wont make the leap to PC. But if its RPGs,Turn based strategy or First person shooter I run it on my PC.

If you don't buy stubs, flip market or get extremely luck with pulls, you have no chance of getting collections done early. I have played a ton including all TA's and the first BR run and I don't even have a division done. I could have a few done if I sold some of my pitchers but then my pitching staff would be depleted.
