Neil Walker has a higher career WAR than Carter. Neil. Walker. In fewer years.
The stats don't lie.
WAR is a terrible stat, it's an estimation with a bunch of assumptions and makes for horrible baseball conversation. It's not meant to be used the way most use it either.
The rest of Joe Carters stats, his actual real production -- very vanilla. Solid player but not great.
One of the all time most clutch moments though.
But overall it's laughable he's a 93 overall.
If WAR is terrible. Why do all the best players have the best WAR?......
“WAR is a terrible stat”
Then why do the best players ever have the highest WAR? Why do guys like Trout, Mookie and yelich always have the highest WAR year in and year out. Hmmmm. Must be terrible.
Could it use a couple tweaks? Yeah. But its so much better than 18, 19. I dont get these fielding issues some of you get, so If pitching gets touched a little bit id say this game is in the best state its been in awhile.
I mean whats even good about it? This is by far the worst hitting has ever been, pitching is still awful. Fielding I guess has been better for me? Bad bad look from SDS. There is no point in trusting what they say anymore. They promised something good this year, then took it all away within a week lol. Depressing really. I just want to play 9 innings online and have fun and its not possible right now. These games are playing SO bad right now.
Can it be better? Yes. But its better than 18 and 19 by a long shot for me. The pitch speeds are a lot faster and its made all you borderline WS guys drop down to the 700s. So rather than getting better, you cry about the game. Its not the games fault you have good PCI placement 4 times a game. When one of those four times happens and you lineout at someone you come here and cry. Just understand you just are not very good. This is the first year in awhile where the better player actually wins 99% of the time. Get better. Stop crying.

Sadly, it's now only a game of skill in the same way poker is a game of skill. Outside of the 1% of 1% of players, one's skill is really only apparent in the aggregate which is super frustrating and, IMO, kind of defeats the purpose of an action-oriented video game, especially H2H. But whatever.
In their defense (kinda), I get why SDS does it - the skill gap in this game is so large that if it played straight up, top players might be hitting .600+ while bad players would struggle to hit .100.
IMO, it would be a lot of fun but I'm sure they have backend data that tells them a large portion of the folks that spend $$ on stubs would fit into that latter category and, I assume, would quit out of frustration once they figured out they couldn't buy themselves wins anymore.
Why would bad players hit any worse my guy? Guys in 400 would still play other guys at 300-500. Unless you are suggesting that bad players never even square the ball up vs other bad players as is, then okay. But if you arent good. And you do finally square a couple up, that end up as good mother bleeping okay flyouts, wouldnt that be far worse gaming experience than getting rewarded a few times a game on some fluky hits? Idk. A better game would make everyone happy man. All levels.
@Nanthrax_1 said in Kris Bryant MVP card?:
Bryant is great. Had a bad year in '18 though... Other than that, he's elite
He did. Mostly was hurt though. Still wasnt “bad” just not the all star-MVP level we are used to seeing him at. Only Played 100 games. Had no power with a [censored] shoulder in the games he did play. He started off that year RED HOT as well. Either way 24 WAR in under 5 seasons played is pretty pretty good. Pretty much on track to be at worst a borderline hall of famer. Hasnt even entered his prime yet either is the crazy thing.
