Question

How much effort does SDS put into making the game boring as they possibly can?

I spend 45 minutes playing a bunch of boring moments so I could try the new Posada card, get into a ranked game where the guy is 27-20. Into the 6th inning, my opponent has 1 hit and 10 strikeouts.

I'm lining out to death, but manage to get man on 2nd & 3rd with 1 out. I hit one 105 foul ( of course) and end up striking out. I then ground out with Thome and the inning was over. This happened after me continuing to line & fly out all game.

So, I immediately send a friendly, bc the game is programmed if you don't score before the 7th and your opponent strikeouts out every ab, he will hit 1 solo Homer, probably very early. So, I had to dip to avoid the loss, luckily my opponent accepted the Friendly.

Losing is whatever, but at least make the game fun. If I'm outplayed my opponent, let me win, don't keep the dude in the game.

I can only hope MLB 23 is at least fun. Not boring

If you want a serious answer and a serious discussion then perhaps you should consider posing a serious question. I didn’t read a word after the first sentence, and no one who would otherwise be interested in engaging in an objective, productive, open-minded discussion will read past that silly question either. You’re either going to get the ridiculous echo chamber hyperbolic responses about how this game is the worst plague ever set upon humanity, or you’ll get people purposely derailing what is clearly an antagonistic thread by engaging in some good old-fashioned trollsmanship.

If you think the game is as boring as that question implies, then why are you wasting your time on this game AND on this forum? When you look back on your life, aren’t you going to wish you had spent time doing things that actually being you joy and peace? If this game isn’t doing it for you, then I’ve got great news! There are a million other games out there, and odds are good that a lot of them will give you a good punch in the ol’ dopamine bone.

Go read a book or pet a dog or karate chop a baby. Whatever makes you happy. Because this game clearly doesn’t do it, and this kind of whineballing just gives you an excuse to wallow in your own unhappiness and it makes the community a more toxic, divisive, and miserable place.

And the white Sox just lost in the 10th to the tigers. So everything is terrible. Thanks.

Biggest problem is that SDS has the monopoly on baseball games. If EA or 2K released a game I'd go play it, but they have not.
If I believe the game has issues. I should bring them up and tell SDS how bad their game is in hope they put actual effort in next years game.
If no one said anything and said the game is amazing, they wouldn't strive to make next year's game good, they would take the easy road like 22. And make another boring game..
I really want to play the COD beta, but I don't see the value in giving Activision $70 to try a beta, so I have to wait until next weekend when the open comes out.

I'd play Madden or 2k, but I don't want to spend $70 on a game I won't get $70 worth of value out of.

I've been playing Halo infinite campaign, but that can only be enjoyable for so long.

Once Pokémon Scarlett & Violet release, I'll be playing that, which I know I'll get full value out of, bc gamefreak knows how to make a game.
There aren't any other games I'm interested in currently so MlB 22 it is, I can only hope they can make 23 Fun!

So wait; if I have a bad experience with a Moment or an opponent in an online game, I can karate chop a baby and it will make it all better?

If no one said anything and said the game is amazing, they wouldn't strive to make next year's game good, they would take the easy road like 22. And make another boring game..

So many things I want to say, but I actually enjoy this game so I’ll keep it as brief as I can.

First, making a game of this scope and magnitude is an absolutely mind-bogglingly complex undertaking. I will never ever understand this insistence that they are being lazy or “taking the easy road” just because, like, you line out more than you think you should. There is no “easy road” taken here. You may not like perfect/perfect fly outs, but that’s not a result of “laziness.”

Second, we often complain because SDS doesn’t interact with their community enough, but do you see why that’s the case? Because there are half a dozen posts exactly like yours every single day. And this is, depressingly, the most positive community for this game. The cesspool of hate, entitlement, and negativity on Twitter, Reddit, and IG make this forum seem like a weekend with Anne Hathaway.

So if you think SDS is somehow blissfully unaware of what a comparatively small but wildly vocal group of angry gamers think, then you needn’t worry. They know what you think! But they are privy to mountains upon mountains of data that we aren’t. By that, I mean they are making the best possible version of a game that needs to appeal to an enormous range of consumers. It has to simultaneously be enjoyable for, like, 8-year-olds who barely understand baseball and only play video games once in a blue moon, as well as to hardcore competitive esports gamers who make a living in front of their consoles.

Everyone thinks their specific demographic is all that matters. It’s not! They’re not in business to go out of business. They know what they’re doing. This is not some kid’s lemonade stand. So when people post tirades because they think it’s going to somehow help SDS or enlighten them with brand new insights that have never occurred to them, I can’t help but shake my head and laugh. This is a big company that’s been in businesss for longer than some of their customers have even been alive. They are not going to do an about face and drastically rewrite their game because of some whiney Twitter posts and YouTube videos made by angry gamers who are all convinced there is a massive conspiracy in the code to keep them from winning.

I know everyone gives him a hard time for this, but Ramone meant what he said when he said the game plays as intended. This is the game they want to make. You can choose to enjoy it for what is, or you can just move on to a different game. But contributing to the most toxic underbelly in this community — especially under the guise of posting some sort of inspirational, altruistic one-man focus group that only wants to help (by being needlessly negative) — is not going to help anyone or anything.

Now if you’ll excuse me. I’m going to go back to watching Boy Meets World and playing the new conquest map.

Boy. You know how to say a bunch of nothing haha

SDS has been making this game for 20 years.
From 2006-2013 I could stay up all night playing mlb the show, now days I play a few hours a week. It was amazing then, you could tell they actually cared and put forth the effort to make not only a good baseball game, but great game in general. That is bc they had competition in 2k. Now, since they are the only baseball game on the market, they don't have to put in effort to update the 20+ year old hitting engine..

Again if I am dissatisfied with a product I purchased I'm going to express that.

I'm just happy to hear you and 8 year old Timmy are having a great time playing!

Too bad we have people like you who play this game bc it's going to continue to be bad as long as you're supporting the boring gameplay.

I'm not the one that continues to play a game I don't like and then proceeds to get so worked up by that game I feel the need to go to an online forum and complain about it while trying to hide it under the context of 'im trying to help the game".

I understand the game has flaws but still overall enjoy the game so I continue to play. If I didn't have fun I would stop playing.

So if you think SDS is somehow blissfully unaware of what a comparatively small but wildly vocal group of angry gamers think, then you needn’t worry. They know what you think! But they are privy to mountains upon mountains of data that we aren’t. By that, I mean they are making the best possible version of a game that needs to appeal to an enormous range of consumers. It has to simultaneously be enjoyable for, like, 8-year-olds who barely understand baseball and only play video games once in a blue moon, as well as to hardcore competitive esports gamers who make a living in front of their consoles.

Everyone thinks their specific demographic is all that matters. It’s not! They’re not in business to go out of business. They know what they’re doing. This is not some kid’s lemonade stand. So when people post tirades because they think it’s going to somehow help SDS or enlighten them with brand new insights that have never occurred to them, I can’t help but shake my head and laugh. This is a big company that’s been in businesss for longer than some of their customers have even been alive. They are not going to do an about face and drastically rewrite their game because of some whiney Twitter posts and YouTube videos made by angry gamers who are all convinced there is a massive conspiracy in the code to keep them from winning.

I know everyone gives him a hard time for this, but Ramone meant what he said when he said the game plays as intended. This is the game they want to make. You can choose to enjoy it for what is, or you can just move on to a different game. But contributing to the most toxic underbelly in this community — especially under the guise of posting some sort of inspirational, altruistic one-man focus group that only wants to help (by being needlessly negative) — is not going to help anyone or anything.

Now if you’ll excuse me. I’m going to go back to watching Boy Meets World and playing the new conquest map.

Boy. You know how to say a bunch of nothing haha

I would rather read anything he writes than the 1000th self righteous "I'm just trying to help SDS make the game better" post which is really just a "wah I lost and think I'm better than I really am" post

Okay dope
.

I'm not the one that continues to play a game I don't like and then proceeds to get so worked up by that game I feel the need to go to an online forum and complain about it while trying to hide it under the context of 'im trying to help the game".

I understand the game has flaws but still overall enjoy the game so I continue to play. If I didn't have fun I would stop playing.

Okay dope

I'm just happy to hear you and 8 year old Timmy are having a great time playing!

That’s the point right here. Timmy and I and hundreds of thousands of others ARE having a great time playing this game. And you may think we’re all dopes for playing a game that you don’t like. But guess what? We all think you’re a dope for playing a game you don’t like.

I think you are a dope

Lol what happened to “All feedback is welcome”

Thread should have said "all feedback is welcome as long as you don't disagree with me"
