I buy this game to have FUN, like video games are supposed to be. If y’all want to make things harder then have 2 different online modes in DD.
1 - Arcade, or whatever you want to call it, where players like myself can smash hits and play for fun....who cares if the score is 15-13....this game is not real baseball.
2 - Competitive, make things as difficult as you want...plain and simple.
Making universal changes to different styles of players just doesn’t work. I might just play online rated at this point, seriously, I’m really not in the mood to have to adapt to patches throughout the year in DD.
