Bumgarner 14k moment

SDS

Any suggestions? The nationals don’t swing out of the strike zone and hit everything

Ps I guess Lester is Babe Ruth with the bat too

SDS

What a joke of a moment

Knew that one would irritate me so just did the exchange.

They hit everything and not well just right at people

SDS

If i didnt. K 2 in the 1st id restart.after the 4th?restart i was able to complete with 2outs in the 6th.
anytime you go into a high Ks mission if they are swinging every pitch no swing and miss and/or hit in play on balls that seem absurd to even swing at-keep restart until you get an attempt that seems like a normal game.

LMAO I had a very similar experience - and yes, Lester turned into Ichiro at the plate. Very frustrating moment.

Same, 2k for 84 Lamet is well worth it

I was gonna say something yesterday when I did these, but didnt see anyone else saying anything so I just toughed it out. But all 3 of those games where you need K's and the one with IP was awful with MadBum. Every team swang at everything in the zone and hardly swung at anything out of the zone. And made hard contact on most swings. Then when I went to do the missions part I played the CPU and of course K's came with ease and the CPU couldnt touch anything and I threw a 1 hit shutout with rookie MadBum with like 18 K's. Moments can be so crazy juiced at times.

I just did the exchange and trying for the 10k and complete game now

SDS

I didn’t bother with that moment and did the exchange. I don’t like Bumgarner’s windup.

SDS

I'm glad I'm not alone. I've hit 12-13 ks too many times. I may have to do the exchange, but I only need the 5 points.

Yes it gets u 5 over but worth it got to 12K my 5th time so gave up

SDS

One tip that worked for me was to walk in runs to go to extra innings if needed. I was at 13K with 2 outs in the 9th, walked in 7 runs to tie the game, and then when the next batter flied out I finished it in the 10th. If they get a base hit its game over but that felt less likely than an out that’s not a K.

SDS

Simple, skip it. I did the exchange and tomorrow i'll do the conquest complete game and 10ks. He should be a fun card to use though.

SDS

For those that will still try to complete it,in addition to restarting until they took strikes and swing and miss, one thing i also did was eliminate the cutter. Just went FB CB and CH. threw FB until 2 strikes never in same place then chase pitches with 2 strikes . having to get 14 makes this tough.

Lol, dont do conquest. Play vs CPU. You can get the K's and complete game at the same time.

Fair enough i've been going through the main conquest for Afinity points but your right probably best to just play one game.

anytime you go into a high Ks mission if they are swinging every pitch no swing and miss and/or hit in play on balls that seem absurd to even swing at-keep restart until you get an attempt that seems like a normal game.

This, it took me maybe 7-8 attempts before finally getting it done. That moment should NOT be on veteran, veteran is the worst difficulty around. If you don’t get 2-3 Ks first inning, restart immediately, you’ll never get there.

This is what I did, got it on my 5th restart. If I didn't get at least 2k's per inning I just reset.

Plus I think the complete game mission needs to be minimum 8ip so conquest wouldn't count for the complete game
