How to avoid Freezes Online Rated

SDS
  1. turn off cross play(so you only have to block people on one console)
  2. scroll through leaderboard (top 200 is what I did) and block all users on your platform that have a batting average below.200 with high win streaks. Look for red flags like a 65-3 record with a 20 game win streak and a .176 batting average.

My record is 94-22 in online rated 14 of those losses are from my opponent freezing the game. I have only had two people freeze me since I made these changes. It really wasn’t a problem until I got ranked around 500. I currently sit around the top 200. The downside of this method takes a few minutes to get a match. I really hope this helps you guys not get into a freeze offs.

All the names I see people complain about in here I have blocked, this way I can’t randomly match with known cheaters.

Blocking a user only blocks communication. You can still match up with them, so this wouldn't work.

Play HOF hitting and legend pitching

No offense but if that’s your record/rank you aren't matching with them is more likely due to the fact that you aren’t ranked high enough in matchmaking to get to them. Also the main accounts only have a hundred or so games “played” therefore they are sitting in a lot freeze offs for multiple hours/days so they don’t play as much as the regular players do.

Also, blocking a player on your system does NOT block them in game. You can still match up with them (yes I’ve done it and had it happen).

None taken, I’m ranked 133 with a rating of 1962 so I should be in range to match up with the top guys. I guess I am just lucky and I haven’t gotten matched up with these clowns.

That still doesn’t guarantee you match with them. It also depends on what settings you play on vs what they play on. I’m 213-38 and I’ve only matched up against a freeze off player maybe 5 times total. And one was after I blocked that player after our first matchup.

Glad you let me know. What setting do you use?

I use mostly use any batting, any pitching, any quests pitch & quick count off. If I’m struggling or in a mini slump I’ll use Veteran batting, any pitching, guess pitch quad and quick counts off.

Hitting on anything blew All-Star shouldn’t be allowed. That’s why some dudes hit .370 online
