I really wish this game would just play out based on user skills and stop making it where bad players are able to be competitive. In BR the better player will hit line drive after line drive for outs and a bad player can strike out 7 times and win on a bloop late timing weak contact hit. I really don’t like complaining but I’m finding myself playing less and less this year. I’m gonna continue to run some stats on this but charting several games vs opponents with losing records and it’s just hard to chalk it up to bad luck when the consistency is happening in the numbers.
my 22% hit rate on line drives
Opponents 60% hit rate on line drives
My 25% hit rate on good contact
Opponents 60% hit rate on good contact
My 30% hit rate on good timing
Opponents 38% hit rate on good timing
My 24% hit rate on balls put in play
Opponents 30% hit rate on balls put in play
Opponents near 40% hit rate on Chased Out of Zone
Just bad luck and need to practice more I suppose will be the answers.... sorry for the rant. Just hoping I’m not the only one feeling this way. I love the game and I love baseball but it seems something is off this year and maybe it’s simply they want more people to play the game and therefore they do what other games do and try and “set up” a “fair” gameplay by taking away from the more skilled player and giving to the less skilled player.
I think to go 12-0, you have to be highly skilled and highly lucky at the same time. You can’t just be skilled because one unlucky game will derail you. You can’t just be lucky because the odds will remain against you. To do well in BR, you have to be highly skilled and live with some unlucky outcomes with the understanding that the chips will fall your way eventually.
Signed, someone who has never gone 12-0.
