@RayLewisSB47_PSN Thank you so much. I got him in the starting rotation and will complete shortly. To all you that answered with help about the conquest maps I appreciate it. I will try it out. I'm a first year guy and I'm old so did not collect all those cards in the beginning and now it is paying me back. No Mookie and No Kershaw for me. I was ten points short of getting Davis without the 5K's so I thought I would have to conquer a conquest map to get him. Thanks guys!
Would be cool to hear Enter Sandman when Hoffman or Mario enter the game. I'm a rocker though.
@TheGoaler_PSN thanks a lot that is some really sound advise. I'm gonna try these tips out for sure! Just so you guys know, I'm 62 years young and I couldn't hang with the PinPoint pitching and the PCI hitting so I use pure analog on both. Studying and watching YouTube videos I have finally gotten my pitching settings down to where I am pretty consistent. My misses don't come back online. I'm a decent player on Hall of Fame but Legend is another story. I don't understand which games are on Hall of Fame and which are on Legend online though. My problem is it takes me about 3 innings on Legend to get a rhythm lol. I reckon that's a little late just like I am on the heater!
@DestroyingFlame_MLBTS looking at the PCI afterwards it shows well below the strike zone but who knows. I know one thing they ain't coming back LOL!
Oh one more thing being old and playing the youngster online when they message you after hitting a walk off against you telling you to get off their field. You calmly message back saying gg you really tagged that one. I guess I should have went to the bullpen instead of trying to get one more batter out of this 62 year old arm lol. They usually message back saying WoW GG.
I would like to become a decent player(Not Great) for when MLB 22 comes out. My question is this: Is it better to play online and get my brains beat out on hall of fame/legend or would it be better to play the CPU in those levels? Also have a question about a pitching setting. Online most guys I play their pitchers pitch with a really fast pitching motion(Not slide step) Is their a setting for this? I'm on xbox series s. Also I guess only practice will help with this. When I miss my spot the ball ends up at least 400 feet away. I don't expect to be the best or one of the best just want to be half way decent. Thanks guys!
@Blind_Bleeder yeah I know what you mean but I enjoy trying to hang with the young guys. I could always hit as a kid but I haven't found a PCI that is comfortable for me. It seems too bulky and I'm more focused on it than my timing. Work in process but I love the game and you don't have to spend money to get a good team like in Madden.
@FelbergShoot14_MLBTS thanks for the link it has some good information in it. Thanks guys for all the input. I will have Mookie tonight!
@lostdragon39_PSN thanks for the advise but one more really stupid question. I just bring the stick back up when I think I am where I need to be. Is this correct or can you stop it another way and then bring it up. If so, that would be a game changer for me.
I'm 62 and since MLB the show 21 came out on xbox I dropped Madden and went to the show. I'm enjoying it! I've learned a lot and improved quite a bit this summer. Looking forward to MLB 22 as I kinda know what to expect as far as saving cards and things but it is sure nice not having to pay money for a good team!
Well I am up for any older friends that love to play the show. I'm on Xbox but feel free to add me and maybe we can play some fun games.
@Blind_Bleeder I'm an xbox guy and don't know anything about Discord but would love to play with others my age.
@RayLewisSB47_PSN @DIRTY-SHAWNCHEZ_PSN can you please answer me a question? Why do players constantly pause the game online? Does it give them some kind of advantage? I only pause when I am going to pinch hit or go to the bullpen. Thanks cause this is both frustrating and confusing for this old guy.
@kwikpoppa_PSN I have always wondered why guys I'm playing are constantly pausing the game.
@jogger171717_PSN please educate this first year player and an old guy to boot. Please give me a pitching lesson on pitching because I get lit up throwing the cutter. This is a serious question. I thought a high and tight cutter was the way to go but they seem to end up well over 400 feet away. Thx for the help.
First year Xbox player that didn't know what I was doing at the beginning of the game ie: collecting cards and such. So needless to say I am very late to the party. I'm setting here 3 All-Star cards from getting Mookie but I need some stubs to buy some cards. Fastest method?
