Jackie Robinson Moments are Pathetic

SDS

Haha wow, I’m laughing at how nerfed these moments are.

In stage 2, using the diamond Jackie for the 7 game WS moment.

Game 1 against Gerrit Cole, just got a perfect/perfect fly ball on a low fastball with an exit velo.....of 87 mph for a weak flyout

Yeah, done wasting any more time on these ridiculously rigged moments.

Again, wake up SDS

SDS

I just hope that if Tim Lincecum is added to the game this year he isn't tied to some moments BS or I'll have to go on a "feedback" campaign.

SDS

Followed up by early/okay on a ball not in the PCI that gives a higher exit velo. What a joke of a game

SDS

Jackie is one player where it really matters how you are squaring balls up. If it’s a liner or grounder you’re probably getting a hit. Getting under the ball with him is not going to make the ball go very far.

Tim Lincecum probably won’t be seen til 2022 at least. It’s generally 5 years after retirement before they can be added back unless I’m mistaken.

I'm having a hard time with stage 2 jackie moments. Seems like every single at bat is either a bloop single or a hard out. in well over 42 innings I somehow have 1 triple and 0 doubles. Meanwhile I've finished about 10 of the team affinity challenges in that time

Agree to an extent.

Literally defies the laws of physics when the exit velo on a perfectly square up fastball, is a lower MPH than the pitch itself.

Should never happen in a baseball game. No matter the mode, no matter the batter. It’s just bad where the state of gameplay is right now

And fully aware that moments play different - and way worse - than any other mode but these moments are just not worth wasting time on with how heavily the deck is stacked against you

Wait, doesn't the challenge want you to hit only doubles? In that case why didn't you stop at 2nd on the triple? 🤣

It usually is but that was completely thrown out the window with Jimmy Rollins this year so anyone could realistically be added any time.

One challenge is 7 Doubles, the other is 3 Triples.

Ah totally right. I’m glad then. A lot of those early 2000 players that have retired recently would be awesome to have back.

I thought the WS mission was the easiest one. I had it done by game 3 or 4. The only mission that drove me bonkers was the doubles missions because I’d either hit a home run or a line drive single to the outfield that wouldn’t find a gap. I got lucky that I hit 2 balls off the CF wall to knock it out, but it took quite a few tries.

SDS

I can't get 7 bases to save my life. Used zone, directional, and analog hitting and it doesn't matter what I do. I have spent 6 hrs probably on this moment. Anyone got any tips?

Yes. Use zone and pull the ball with power swing. I hit a home run and a triple because his power is around 60 vs RHP, you have to pull the ball to get optimal EVs

I appreciate it. I will give it a try.

Well it hasn't worked. Had 3 doubles in a row and they started pitching me out so I figured I'll just lay down a bunt with 2 out and no one on and Suarez turned into Usain Bolt and threw me out by 25 ft. Now it is a bunch of perfect/perfect flyout and some Texas leaguers. I will get it eventually I guess.

SDS

Not gonna say it isn’t frustrating but if it’s set for realistic then they nailed it.

He has a long slow swing, the good part of the bat is not in the strike zone quick plus he’s swinging a [censored] tree trunk .... but when you connect on the right pitch, he drills it..... most everything else is weak contact ....

It makes it more difficult to hit today’s pitchers when using the actual guys swing mechanics for lots of the old timers they have in game .... I wish they would match them with the pitchers of their era...

Just my .02

SDS

Yeah it's a little to easy. They got to make moments a lot harder for sure

Unrelated but topical: pretty sure that Reds RH relief pitcher in the 7 TB moment has Lincecum's motion
