Wanna know how bad I am at this game?

SDS

My DD team just got beat in an extra innings game on rookie difficulty. Ugh! I am atrocious at hitting. Normally I'm a pretty good hitters on rookie and veteran difficulty....at least I was on MLB 20. For some reason I'm struggling on 21. Feels harder to hit.

I've played 2 games in a custom league on HOF difficulty (only because I wanted in a custom league and they offered) and I've struck out 38 times including 25 in one game. I can't hit for [censored]. I mean I love this game but it takes a little of the fun out when 90% of my outs are strikeouts.

Custom practice lets you practice hitting to your hearts desire. You should check it out, helped me when I first started.

You’re not alone. I feel your pain, trust me.

Hitting is a bit different this year.

At least you're honest, I have more respect for you than half of the people on here that say they're awesome at the game but they play with a PCI with default pitch speed and mainly care about collecting virtual cards than actually practicing. So my advice to you is keep practicing and If you're not playing on a monitor yet maybe for 2022 you should move to that and just for fun go into the batting cages and knock up the pitch speeds to 10 and hit on Legend...not saying you should play at this but just to improve your reaction time.

You couldn't possibly be worse than me. Stick with it and practice I'm sure you'll improve. But there's no hope for me I'm afraid. πŸ˜„

You should go and set your tv to game mode, and if you have enough money go buy a good gaming monitor....if you have done this, all I can say is keep playing lol. The hitting is different this year, but I find it better than past years (it still sucks but better than homer fest and "be late, be great" stuff lol)

Play them extra innings mode games they more like playing realistic game than ranked ,Cheese will not apply or fly . When you go in extra innning mode and get nothing but 97 ,98 rated squads simply exit and re_enter until you see a team you gotta chance with. Decent rewards in there and darn good training ground to work on all facets of your game.I play it religiously and follow my pitching rotation as if I were playing DD As you improve your skills and earn stubbs for better cards you will find yourself with a 90 plus team before you know it. Make it hard for yourself to win but give yourself a shot I recommend veteran difficjulty once your have an 80 plus squad and allstar after . Be forewarned an 80 plus Custom squad will put it on you if you dont watch it. Almost all your wins will be well deserved at least. Good hunting.Best part is the different lineups and uniforms. Never play anyones team describing genitals, it aint professional. LoL.

Could you please tell me more about these deccent rewards? I never tried Extra innings, but I was thinking about it couple last days, cause I have done all Conquests.
I'm also rotating my pitchers every game like in real life πŸ™‚

SDS

I considr them decent and have built my team doing extra innings mode Iplay allstar settings If you are curious to see that team send amessage thru PSN messenger Show you a screen shot.Im not overly impressed with ranked seasons cheese league although I do play it occasionally ,that and online rated You defeat a Custom team in extra innings mode rated 98 on allstar you will deserve the victory. That is of course my opinion. You can also search Kwikpoppa from your standings menu to access my record game history etc as you can anyones,My numbers will support any statement I make.

SDS

I'm sorry if it was looking like a trolling question, it wasn't meant so. I was just curious if the rewards are better than in the vs cpu games.
And I don't think I could beat 98 cpu team on AS πŸ™‚

I feel your pain. I got mercied, shut out, and beat by only scoring one run. I went 0-3 in our league games recently. I've never done any better than that either. OH...and this was on AS.

Yesterday, I was playing a conquest map and was beat 3 times by teams in extra innings (5). I was shut out all three times. That was on AS too.

I bet you'd beat me in an online game...
