WS players are mediocre on a level playing field

SDS

My RS rating is 411 but I have a winning record against WS players in BR. I'm convinced they're frauds and only put up monster stats in RS because they have a team full of 99s.

There should be better rewards for BR, that's a more realistic gauge. It's impossible to move up in RS when my team of golds is facing 26 diamonds every game.

SDS

If you’re good you can bust out some showdowns. Team affinities are some of the more competitive cards in the game right now and they’re free.

SDS

Are you being sarcastic? A 3 inning game tells almost nothing about who is more skilled. A 3 inning game is way more prone to randomness winning out.

SDS

You must be a blast at parties.

Well.... the huge difference is BR on all star . all star = pure luck and no skills required , and it's only 3 innings . Not trying to ruin your parade or saying that your not good , just stating some facts . I'm a WS player and I havnt gone 12-0 this year just yet , always lose after 6 or 7 wins lol last year though I made 12-0 couple of times .

Same here. I made three runs last year. This year my best was 8-0. I think I’m struggling with this new 3 batter rule and have yet to adjust my strategies

SDS

Lol I guess I’m a fraud. Needed a good laugh this morning, thanks OP

SDS

I advise you to go watch YourFriendKyle on YouTube. He's gone to WS with an all gold squad (max 84 overall) and faced god squads pretty much exclusively. He's a top player for a reason of course, but he alone disproves your ridiculous theory.

Huh?..i don't think this fits in anywhere

SDS

Or All-Star difficulty allows for a lot of randomness and can neuter good user input with good/okays and pitches floating down the middle when your timing is perfect via meter or analog.

If you think some of them are frauds, then play them at HOF difficulty, where the game plays 1000% better.

SDS

Haha this was a great laugh this morning

SDS

I went 12-0 In BR last night. I’m a pretty good RS player made World Series a couple times but get to 880 about every season and always drop the game to get me there

Any advice on drafting strategies? I know about the power hitters but what about pitching?

Maybe some year we’ll get a game where randomness doesn’t decide who wins. The randomness is controlled by the game, so your statement implies scripted gameplay.

No, it does not imply scripted gameplay. It's just simple math.
Less time = more of a chance a blooper wins the game. 3 inning games will always be like that. Fewer innings = less time for skill to win out.

Has nothing to do with scripted gameplay at all.

SDS

As soon as you said 411 you lost all credibility brother. Lmaooo

When does skill start to be rewarded? After 3 innings? Anything before that is just randomness?

SDS

I’m not a WS player. I’m very mediocre. I have descent BR runs. I like BR cause the games are quick. That being said it doesn’t give either player a lot of time to pick up on patterns or erase random bloops. BR does not prove skill.

Gotta get some value pitchers. I only took pitchers bronze and silver. Betances, givens, Aaron bummer, Aaron loup, Matt Barnes, she JA happ were the only guys I used. I’m no BR expert that’s my first 12 win run but that was very effective

Anything goes on all star level my guy.
