Why this game is an absolute joke

SDS

Yeah... let's get it out of the way. I lost a game and I'm bitter

I struck the guy out 19 times.... He struck me out 7

I put the ball in play 20 times.. 7 of which had PCI of 14 or high and didn't get one of those to be a hit.

He put the ball in play a whopping 11 times TOTAL.... ONE PCI of a 14. Everything else was a 12 or lower.... Including the game winning HR.

Now this is All-Star Hell of course since the season reset. But Can someone please chime in here and tell me Git Gud or defend the game to the end of times. Because that was literally the most frustrating games I have ever played.

I want to make it clear I'm not defending that, I would be livid as well. However, how is it possible to make it never happen? The only way would be all good pci is hits and all bad pci are outs, otherwise this scenario is bound to happen at some point.

In the year where stick skills reign supreme one expect good input being rewarded more often than not.

Sure, but that doesn't answer my question. How do you ensure it NEVER happens? Because even if good input is rewarded alot, this scenario is still possible by getting extremely unlucky.

No i know... and I really don't expect hits every single time... But man Squared up ball after squared up ball and nothing. And not to really bag on my opponent more.. he stuck in and won. but after how the game had gone. I wasn't too happy with SDS to say the least

And then we reward 12 PCI with the game winner in the top of the 9th..

Sure, and like I said, I'd be livid to, but is it possible to ensure this scenario never happens without going to the extreme? I personally don't see how

Believe it or not Randy Johnson struck out 19 and lost 1-4

SDS

As Yogi would have said, they wouldn't have won if you had beaten them. 😉

IRL it happens, so it needs to happen on very rare ocassions. What hitting need is good input to be rewarded a little bit more.

git gud???

but like that's just baseball for u, its frustrating, but i just tell myself to try to stay cool and 90% of the time u will win games like that. i think one of the most important things on this game is to pay attention to ur swings--like did u get good timing/contact--and not the results. cause at the end of the day thats what matters. if u hit lots of perfects itll average out to wins and u dont wanna get thrown off by one going for an unlucky out with runners on or something

SDS

Git gud.

SDS

Git gud SDS..Build us a game where you don't have to hear these sorts of reports. And they happen all the time, they don't get reported all the time, it's just eventually someone will completely lose their cool and just have to vent. No one really wants to bitck..we just don't like games stolen from us for the sake of parity.

I had one couple days ago same sort of script plays out. Opponent doesn't appear to have a concept of the strike zone..swinging at every thing, gets that where-did-that-come-from homerun to tie the game 1-1 in the 6th. 9th inning I bring in Hader to face his lefties and a perfectly warm Hader walks the first 2 batters. I was putting pitches on the inside edges and they were animated so far outside this free-swinger just held the bat. I understood this all to familiar recipe and quit..giving him the 1-1 win. Haven't played RS since.

There has to be a way, right?

This game is and has been for years screwed up by connections. You can't take this game competitively. Just play with different cards and not care if you win or lose. That's what I do.

SDS

Analyzing PCI feedback etc will only make u nuts and stop u from getting better. I personally don't even think I know how to check it. Also I don't wanna know for previously stated reasons. The better player wins a vast majority of the time. That's fine with me
