Mercy rule in BR?

SDS

Is there no mercy rule in BR?

SDS

No, it is only 3 innings. Mercy rules dont kick in until at least mid 4th.

SDS

There doesn't need to be one either. BR is crazy, I've had 10 run comebacks before and I've also blown 10 run leads. Doesn't happen often, but it's possible in BR. If you're 10-0 or 11-0, you don't wanna be dealing with a possible mercy rule. You just wanna go at it until the very last out.

I only ask because I was playing someone that literally just kept throwing fastballs down the middle and intentionally letting me score. It was like 25-0 first inning. Finally I just stopped swinging and he started hitting me with the ball and it kicked him for griefing.

Whenever you play a clown like this, just strike out intentional to fast forward the game.

That and they are trying to map out and hunt for ways to freeze games intentionally. I would still report it regardless of win. The way I look at it, if it's too good to be true, it simply isn't.

In br someone dropping the controller may not be a bad thing. You can bang out the ten homeruns 40 run thing plus the strikeouts in the br program.

This. Especially early in the BR runs when your matchup ratings are lower. I'm always grateful for an easy win via the quit but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed when some people quit after the first (given how quickly BR games can swing).

That’s what I did. I got the home run and TB challenges done but I think this guy would’ve staying in there all day. Luckily when I stopped swinging he started intentionally hitting me
