If you hit R2 Three Times Before EVERY PITCH…..

SDS

There is something in your life that is causing you to be a scumbag which festers itself into how you play video games. Takes a decent amount of anger, hatred and effort to be that annoying.

SDS

Idk man my 2 year old nephew can be pretty annoying and I don’t think there’s any anger or hatred there. Could be wrong. But more likely than not it’s just a kid trying to get this exact reaction from you.

SDS

I think it's time to introduce balk at least in RS... it's just ridiculous now it's annoying and it's not even fun to play this game anymore. I win most of my game vs this "type" (please insert insult) of player but it's just a total waste of time because the fun part is not existing anymore

At this point I’m down for balks to be back too.

I don’t think there are many young children that have Trout, Robinson and Rivera and are around WS in rank. These are full grown miserable dbags.

The R2 guys don't bother me at all. Just start waiting a ton of time between each pitch. I do that for a couple of batters so that they can't disrupt my timing. It's more annoying to them than they are to you and they usually stop. If they don't, I continue for an inning at a time until they do.

Probably not as much as it does to make this post.

Balks turned on is fine, but it still doesnt stop the R2 abusers. They just have to wait a little longer now to disrupt the pitching input.

Been asking for it for years bro! Maybe next year……

Turn on balks, disable R2 ideally.

How would turning on Balks stop R2? The balk is called on a pitcher, so wouldn't that just cause "The Pitcher" to balk and allow the base runners to move up a base (if any)?

Turning on balks would allow SDS to remove R2 from delaying the pitch without allowing people to throw 10 pitches in 10 seconds.

IMO people will just find a way to exploit balks if they do that. It's a no win situation really.

That can be said about basically any aspect of any online game. If you can’t think of how balks could be exploited then it’s at least a better option than something that is already being exploited

Yeah I dont understand how turning on balks would effect R2 at all. These guys arent using R2 for anything more than to disrupt pitching. R2 suppose to show previous pitches, and pitch confidence and such. But what maybe 2% of people who hit R2 use it for that? And they just hold it to take a peak every now and then not tap it 3 random times every AB. There are next to no R2 abusers using it to slow down pitching, that is a fact.

But like many others have mentioned. I use PP pitching and it hasnt been an issue all year for me, even though probably about 70% of my opponents have done the R2 tap every AB. The notification they give us now works wonders.

Simple. Turn on balks. Disable R2.

The point people are making is they arent related. Taking out one feature and adding a new feature helps nothing. People wanting pitching slowed down arent the issue. Its people who are abusing R2 by tapping randomly every AB. So why take away being able to see pitch info for guys who want to use that stuff, (honestly makes no sense to me, players cannot do that in real life).

If you believe people that say, "slow sown your pitching and R2 wouldnt be an issue" then you are very gullible lol. The R2 abusers arent doing that because of how fast you are pitching. Or they wouldnt do it starting with your first batter, and darn sure wouldnt be tapping it multiple times an AB at random times.

But that is why it’s there and why SDS hasn’t taken it out yet. Turning on balks takes out that reason for R2 to be in the game at all. I’m well aware many people don’t use it for what it’s intended.

I dont think you are understanding what I am saying. How does turning on balks make it were a feature that allows you to see pitch confidence and energy and previous pitch locations is no longer needed?
