I’m just curious how many old timers out there have made World Series Rank. Let’s say you’re considered an old timer at 35. Or, if you’re younger, and you have to pee more frequently than you used to, you can call yourself an old timer too.

SDS

I'm 41 and have yet to make WS.

After...

Seven years of playing this game.

But it's all good. I recognize my mediocrity for what it is.

SDS

Im 41 and make world series

SDS

I'm 41, this is my fourth year of DD and division series is the highest I've ever made it. Where's all my fellow old timers who are terrible online? lol

SDS

So I’ve been playing the show for three years. I’m 41. I made World Series once last year and once this year. If it wasn’t for a monitor and a lot of luck, I wouldn’t make it ever. Last year, I just kept my pci high and in and swung at everything. This year I had to take pitches, work counts, and pray for disconnects. And I figured the more pitches I take, the longer the game lasts, and the better chance my opponent would lose interest and just quit.

SDS

I have enough stress with my job, so I just play until I hit PR and grab the diamond card. I would probably play more ranked if there was an XP reward attached to each division.

SDS

Is everyone 41?

SDS

36 and I'll never get past CS as long as I face Cabrera every game. I can hit every other pitcher but I'm lucky to foul him off.

That's what I was thinking. Lol.

I actually just turned 41 a few weeks ago. This post should have been made earlier so I'd be a little more unique lol

SDS

37, I believe, and haven’t made World Series since I started playing in ‘18. except for the 40 wins this year. Highest I ever made was 820

I’m 40 and hoping to get there one day! Any interest in helping a brother out? I need friendlies on legend.

SDS

I’m 52 and made it once a few years ago and that’s fine with me. I was able to hang around in CS but now those days are behind me. I would rather play when I feel like it and play for fun instead of sweating every game. Plus now WS rewards are available to all so it’s a win win for guys like me.

Even with the 40 win thing, I'll still never get any of the WS rewards because I suck bad enough that I'd probably have to play at least twice that many games to get there and most of my limited playing time is spent trying to keep up with the offline content. For bad players like me, the struggle is real lol

Woah. My "41 year old" peers coming out of the woodwork. Good to know I'm not alone.

I don't make WS. I generally play a lot of events and will play a handful of ranked games on the weekends.
