BR: Game of skill or luck

SDS

Earlier I posted about not being that great at BR. Well, I just had the three best games I've ever played. Well, 2.2/3.

In those games I completed the 3 Ks with Chris Sale (one inning) and the HR with Springer (surprised my opponent didn't dashboard).

I also got 33/40 TBs, 18/30 Hits, and 8/10 Ks before I lost my first game. (Which I should've won. Funny how the game was choppy when he batted but when I batted it was fine).

Anyway, the first two games I came back to win.

So, is BR luck or skill? I say luck.

Both, to go 12 and 0 does take skill but luck can carry you awhile in BR.

Well there goes your 32 straight runs with none of the mission players.

Yeah. I lucked out on my 3rd and 4th win.

4th game I match up against someone that is rocking a WS Icon and a 12-0 BR banner. Also had an RS record of 71-9.

He quit after I got his first three batters out.

5th game I match up against someone who picked Houston's stadium and proceeded to throw EVERYTHING in the dirt.

Even though I knew it was coming; I couldn't pay off the pitch. (he would mix in a high strike here and there)

That's how I won. Hit a high strike with AS Griffey for a HR. Only hit of the game. He had 5 or 6 hits. But he also likes to baserun glitch so I would throw out here and there and catch him in a rundown.

It’s way more skill than anything else. I’ve never played a guy who has gone 12-0 who wasn’t cracked.

Ended up losing the next game to end my run.

What sucked about the loss us I ended up 1 Hit and 1TB short of completing those missions. 🤬

I've beaten a few of them in the current event and in br and I'm only a championship series player. So I feel like this year with freeze offs I often wonder if they're as legit good.
