The TA season 2 showdowns suck.

SDS

I’m 2 for 2 but I hate a lot of the missions. The randomness of needing a HR and the fact that I can hit 10 doubles and be wining 9-0 and lose just sucks. Also, I don’t know who thought having a stealing moment was a good idea.

The final bosses are annoying. I beat webb and Lee but barely, as again sinker ballers in this game seem incredibly hard to square up.

I’m going to see how exchanges and grinding the lessons and PA goes because I foresee a broken controller doing many more of these TA showdowns.

SDS

If you can, do the exchanges, collection, missions, and PA. I’m about 80% done and haven’t done a single showdown and don’t foresee needing to do any to finish off. In fact, I’ve been able to get 100% in a division with only need to do the PA one time through.

SDS

Its not even the pitchers for me, I hit a lot of them good or perf. but again every OF is Willie Mays and every INF is Ozzie Smith on D, lot of cheap double plays, pop ups and diving catches. This mode and game are so enraging

SDS

The hit 2 basehits and steal a base I’m 0-4 I draft power but now I draft the fastest bronze I can find and still can’t get a steal, cmon SDS

SDS

I'm sorry but they aren't that bad. I personally don't rush to the end like most. I end up with no less than 8/12 going into the final boss. You're playing on veteran for crying out loud the PCI is massive. Pick power guys dunno what else to tell you.

SDS

I've won about 6 so far but definitely feel as though power has been nerfed even with perks that boost exit velo.

I had zero issues with TA1 showdowns. Hit bomb after bomb after bomb in those showdowns. Completed them all in a couple weeks. Power in TA2 showdown seems toned down compared to TA1 despite the fact many of the cards are better compared to the 42 cards we had access to.

Yeah I had very few issues with TA 1. The issue is in this game once you start getting 95+ pitchers no matter the hitter you have the CPU pitching seems to have a massive advantage.

When I faced Lee I had 9 straight outs but somehow managed 5 runs in the last 6. They almost never walk you and their stamina is so jacked up that wearing them down with only 15 outs doesn’t work.

SDS

my favorite was get a stolen base while they throw over every pitch multiple times when i have no lead with edgar and torre

I agree. The wife is out of town so I spent the entire day yesterday grinding the conquest maps. The pack rewards from the maps gave me enough cards to finish the LS collection and get every TA to about 65%. Haven’t even tried a showdown yet.

Agree showdown for season 2 is brutal they definitely did something to make it harder vs season 1 it’s not even close . Ones any of these diamond pitchers gets confidence you might as well quit the ball doesn’t leave the yard even with exit velocity Perks .

SDS

I don't normally skip the end cause the game will [censored] over your hits and you can't consistently win. But with the moments in ta 2 I've attempted skipping and I'm 1 for 2 atm. If I loose another one prolly go back

SDS

Season 1 was super easy. Is 2 harder? Or just more annoying?

Both season 1 was like little pony difficulty compared to this one . you are also facing better diamond pitchers some that can throw 99+ mph it’s just way more annoying trust me .

The pitchers we face now are better than thenines we faced in TA1. That matters a bit too

Gotcha...was thinking of that as part of missions, so was making sure there wasn't something else.

I’m not good with high velo guys. TA 1 showdown was easy unless I had to face Dibble

There’s a decent mix between guys who throw gas and more finest pitchers . All I know is some of these showdown runs just feel like a uphill battle others are smooth sailing till you hit a wall . That wall is usually the final boss where no matter what you do balls refuse to land, a 2 run to win requirement looks more like a 10 and almost impossible to reach ones a pitcher gets enough confidence . I’m currently on a 50/50 win to lose rate ratio on this new showdown brutal.
