Funny, but not as funny as when you added me on PSN a few years back and asked my ears off for tips and help to improve your game. And now you've grown an attitude, good lad.
What was your name back then? I'll need to verify.
The very same raesONE and don't act like you don't remember. But I understand why you probably turned against me, because I got so tired of your whining and constant asking like a spoiled little child, despite me already giving you so much time and effort, that I deleted you from my friend's list. That's how tiresome you were. It probably turned you bitter. It's all good, but I hope you don’t mind me sharing what kind of person you are. Have a good one Rhino, hope the tips made you a better player. 👍🏼
I think you got the wrong guy. I don't recall ever really messaging anyone anything other than GG or nice play.
Haha nice try. But I would deny it too, it's quite embarrassing.
Just lost event game with 1-3 on perfects and 2-6 on goods. Opponent was 4-6 on goods with no perfects. Someone please tell me what trash [censored] internet you need to get rewarded in this game. Seriously, it isn't fiber.
Also someone please tell me what the point of hitting is. Isn't it supposed to be perfect and good swings?
Don't care about the losses. Just can't believe how bad a game can be developed. It's the equivalent of shots not registering in shooter games. I might as well have my [censored] in my hand at the plate, same result.
How does your internet connection have anything to do with PCI placement and the result of it?
I noticed that the pci becomes laggy if the connection is very bad, you can feel how it doesn’t respond as it should, same with swing timing, you know you swung early and still get that very late
There's a long list of stuff and you know it's a bad connection game.
More defensive misplays
Baserunning issues (i.e. delay in tagging up and trouble moving and returning runners)
Pinpoint pitching issues
More bs hits from opponent and looks like they are hitting a golf ball when they connect meanwhile you are swinging a pool noodle
Throwing meter issues
It is a long list. I made WS last night but it wasn't fun. Legend game with warping pitches (struck out like 16 times and got lucky selling out some pitches and he hung some pitches) and a HOF game with pitches very similar to the legend game. I'm ok with my reaction time being a little slower as I am getting old but I can't even see or recognize most pitches.
I totally understand as I deal with this more often than I should, I really wish matchmaking in this game was ping based
Well just lost RS game. Couldn't see the ball or catch up to outlier after making the guy before quit with an outlier pitcher. Guy had 2 early HR's on outside pitches to CF at Oak. My early with Acuna gets caught at the track down the line. Last out 67 runner got thrown out at home from 10 ft in front of the track at CF. Why? Glad you asked. Because my runner wanted to scratch his balls instead of going when I sent him and sat there for a second. Just one of the many things that happen when they match you against cave dwellers using wifi. Why I've only played like 18 RS games this season and playing other games more. Servers are absolute trash.
That Ramirez fly ball for the game ending DP was right next to the dot with good timing and went 30 ft shorter than his early swings.
Last 3 event games on wired fiber no vpn. 1st guy confirmed Boston, 3rd guy confirmed North Carolina. Didn't even ask the 2nd one. I am playing all star and having to sell out for pitches. Quit [censored] matching me against people 1000 miles away. Is there no one playing this [censored] game in the midwest?
You know it’s a red flag to message someone and ask them where they live right? You know that right?
Only if your mind is wired weirdly, like yours apparently. Asking a question with some context is perfectly normal. Not like he asked the guy for his address or his SSN, just asking what region he's from is not that weird.
Yeah, I disagree. And there’s never been anything stated about how the question is asked. If I match with someone, the pause the game, and message me “where do you live” I’m screenshotting, reporting, blocking and quitting. You can think what you want, but, this person is clearly obsessed with internet connections, goes so far to ask people where the live, uses a VPN, that’s the kind of person that does ddos attacks bud. It just is.
"Where do you live" is a weird question, I doubt he used that specific phrase.
"Where are you from" is very commonly used in every day small talk.
Yes, you can doubt it gets phrased that way all you want, much like I can assume it does.
Yes you can. And like I said earlier, that gives us some insight into your mind, not his.
Ah, yes. The psycho analysis. Where did you get your PHD Doctor?
It's really not that complicated.
There’s a lot of validity to feelings of concern when a random person on the internet messages you with “where are you from?” Especially because the preceding message was most likely something passive aggressive along the lines of “wish I didn’t have to face warp pitch speeds” just because you agree with a madman doesn’t make it any less weird.
Wasn't talking to you Skepple, save your replies for when I actually @ you.
No thanks, I’ll reply where I see fit thanks!
Also, go back in our messages on your other account as to how dangerous it can seem asking someone where they’re from. I won’t bring it up but if you go back in our messages you’ll understand what I mean.
No clue what you're talking about and tbh I don't really care either. I came here only to say that Demise is right to complain about the state of networking infrastructure when it comes to this franchise and that it's pathetic how these buffoons jump his throat on every opportunity just because he brings up the same issue over and over again.
Because honestly the issue is not that big of a deal and it only comes up when he loses. He straight admitted it in this thread, when he won everything was all good. It’s been the same thing for 6 years if it’s that bad stop playing. Who’s forcing you to be here?
Anyone who messages someone asking where they’re from is definitely on the unstable side. To try and make excuses for it is crazy weird
Not a big deal because it obviously doesn't affect you. Like I said before, I'm not hungry but not ignorant enough to know that world hunger is not an issue for some people.
Asking where someone is from is unstable because I am curious about the matchmaking? Exaggerate much?
Because you’re asking a bunch of people where they’re from? And I’m sure giving your bs before or after, yea that’s unstable behaviour. How about if you don’t like it so much stop playing and go away. Plenty of people do, you clearly do not. Go do something else instead of clogging up the forums with your nonsense and asking people where they’re from.
So Skepple, I mean Canuckler beg pardon.. tell me, do you feel like the p2p quality in this franchise is good/acceptable and you have never been in a game where it is just impossible to time a fastball no matter what?
I have never had that happen, I’ve played guys with bad connections from DR, PR, Japan, but still been able to hit 🤷🏽♂️ sorry that you guys can’t
See now I know you're lying. Because I used to associate with a bunch of top players when I was still good at this game and they all mention this issue as a consistent and unpredictable variable in the online environment of this franchise which pretty much ruins the entire experience. I'm not gonna name drop here, but they are a lot more reputable than you are Ske, I mean Canuckler. All due respect of course. So each and everyone of these guys are just full of it I guess.
Also I never said it's literally impossible to hit. You just have to sell out on it which makes you extremely vulnerable to everything offspeed once they figure that out, which only takes half an inning if you're playing someone with a brain or some experience in this game.
with all due respect Raes - Skepple for years has been literally one of the best players in the world - to say his reputation is not as good as some others is insane - Skep is in the 1% of performance - i remember years past seeing him overall number 1 in events - we have known each other for years - you included
In events? Okay. That's awesome. I'm talking about guys who compete for the Summer and Fall circuits. Nothing against "The Canuckler" (he doesn't want to be called Skepple), I did say all due respect in my previous comment. That wasn't me being sarcastic.
i mean i referenced a singular type of thing here talking about how good Skep is - i am sure he plays at a high level in RS - you are trying to split hairs here diminishing what his skillset is - at the end of the day he is absolutely one of the best on this forum, and in game
why you guys are going back and forth i have no idea i just wanted to jump in with my 2 cents
Because he felt like interfering about something that doesn't concern him, replying to me when I did not mention him once. I'm sure he's able but don't use events as proof lol, I have been a top the events leader boards multiple times in the past and every time someone brings it up to flatter me I cringe because it literally means nothing.
you remind me of Mitch in a way - always downplaying great accomplishments - you say it means nothing and in reality you are correct in that ALL OF THIS means nothing - this is a videogame world to begin with - so i hear you it does mean nothing in the grand scheme of things - that all being said, what you and Skep have done and do are great accomplishments compared to the average MLB gamer
Mitch would never act like this lol
mitch was a whiney cringe baby who lost his mind and had other mental issues i am sure - a guy who was truly terrific at the game and always said how bad he was - analogous to being the best golfer in a 4some but then complaining to the other 3 all 18 holes - i personally enjoyed his wit and character - but he was overall a very negative dude - i prefer RAES even though he can be spicy sometimes
i've known some of you guys on this forum for years too so its weird to see you bicker
For me it was Christmas Day when he was still being a weird little cringe cry baby I knew he had something bothering him. For Skepple it was when he tried to get the FBI involved with JudgeistheGoat and for Rae it was everything.
The fbi involved? Lol what? the guy literally called my work phone and cell to threaten me. There’s random internet arguing than there’s taking things to a whole other level. I’d say some action was warranted.
Is that why you changed your username? How on earth does a random get a hold of hour work and cell phone number tho?
Because Skepple is my last name
Ah. Aren't there many Skepples around?
No It’s not a common name.
Gotcha. Guess I understand better now why it was an issue. See, we can be civilized.
You could have begun to be civil by not calling his name out repeatedly, just to be a [censored], after he asked for it to stop.
You view yourself as an objective fan trying to better the game but then come on here and let emotion and personal history run wild attacking or annoying the people who would need to be on your side to enact any real change.
I guarantee you would get a lot more reasonable people to take your complaints more seriously if you were in fact civil more often
He didn't ask for it to stop even once, just implied he didn't like it. So I'm not even gonna read the rest of your comment if you can't even make it past one sentence without spewing bs.
I accept that your wording is more accurate, but you still were able to infer his message and still chose to keep doing it in a way that I can't read as anything other than condescendingly. That's was my point. No snarky responses, no nitpicking something slightly off to completely dismiss a point being made that may or may not have merit, just stay out of the fray and let your logic stand for itself.
There’s a lot of good players right now. I was in the 800s yesterday and had 16 hits on HOF and still got my [censored] handed to me. I just see it as a guy that’s way better than me.
You must not have Google Fiber connection. Nor have beaten the best players this country has to offer from Honolulu to New York City or Anchorage to Miami. If DemisE4 is losing on ranked season you can be sure deception is afoot and the hackers are out in force.
Slowly but surely we are going down the Madden pay to win road. They don't even want us to grind the market anymore. Stinks we cant sell them. I still haven't gotten Jeter yet and def do not need/ want trash can Correa on my team. He's hitting .210. Not very exciting.
You’re correct about SDS going down the pay to win path same as Madden…The difference though is you can still beat God Squads with teams made up of the no sell cards whereas in Madden if you don’t have an equal squad you’re gonna get spanked.
This is correct but I think hiding popular cards behind these 75k with such a small chance to get is a giant L. This trend is very concerning. I wouldn't be shocked to see this be there lowest played RS in a while with the rewards combined with non-sellable (if they are still doing that). Maybe they are going back to making this sellable which would be a win. It was a mistake to make the RS and BR rewards non-sellable in the first place. As I've said before the issue that caused the low RS reward was the program was too easy. They have corrected that.
