At this point, we are all aware of the various problems with this game. Hitting, fielding, pitching, they all have their issues. I browse these forums and see them daily, like the rest of us. But when is SDS actually going to do something about it? Year in and year out it's the same story.
I took a break for a few days, but decided to get on today to play. Hear me out, this actually happened:
First batter - routine grounder to the left of the SS. He clearly gets to the ball in time, but for whatever reason, it goes under the glove. I shrug it off, I've seen it happen alot recently, so whatever. Guy on first.
Second batter, guy bunts it hard down the first base line. I field it with my first baseman charging, and take not even one step to his left for the tag, and he misses the tag. Whatever - guy on first and second.
Third batter - another groundball to the left of the shortstop. Once again, he gets to the ball and yet again, for whatever reason the ball goes under the glove, and at this point, I'm furious. It gets better. With the guy rounding third to score, I switch to my CF to try to grab it and throw him out at the plate. HE RUNS RIGHT THROUGH THE BALL WITHOUT TRYING TO PICK IT UP. I got no animation whatsoever.
I pause and offer a friendly in hopes of my opponent seeing this seriously flawed game in action. Of course, declined. I gave him the win, it's not his problem, but there's no reason to play when this is the game they put out for us to play.
