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..
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.
