Now I remember why I never play Events

Talk about exploiting random. Same 95 average lineup same 64 pitcher. One game you'll mash 10 homeruns. The next game you have to squeak out 2 to win with neither team getting a tater.

Games are either 2-0, or 12-10.

One game the pitcher is what you would expect from a 64. Hammer time. The next game, it's all ground-outs, double-plays, and fly outs.

It just screams drop a coin, pull the handle.

I will say this, if the developer guys are trying to bless us with "Moonshots" it does happen. But, when you have a minor league pitcher throwing against, arguably, the best offensive players at all time at Coors Field..you should expect it. You just should expect it a lot more.

Sometimes I just don't get what these guys are trying to accomplish.

I'm guessing, when they dump out an Event like this they modify the RNG slightly to throw in HomeRun barrage games every so often. Then it just resorts back to the same random/parity-centric results most of the rest of the time.

The problem with that is, they've already set up the completely unbalanced pitcher/batter foundation. And when 64 pitcher suddenly starts shutting down high-diamond bats over 3 innings it just really draws attention to the fact.

If I was a designer I would stray away from anything that can potentially exploit, even more, the true nature of the game.

But, hey, the animation is spectacular. They are top-shelf displaying awesome MLB-like animation on your screen. Would never-ever suggest they don't do animation spectacularly.

This is literally all H2H game modes. Making good contact/timing for a hit is like opening a chest in COD, hopefully a self-revive pops out 🤞🤷
