In my opinion most of the people in this community are good people. They're here to help you, and here to interreact with you on a positive level. Sure there's a handful of people that are jerks, but overall this is the best community for sports games.
@PaullyG24 said in Hey SDS We’re Not Laughing:
It’s seriously unbelievable. A 100% probability that in a showdown, if you have a runner on first and swing the bat, swing anywhere even, you will ground into a double play. It’s not even funny.
Anytime I get a base hit in Showdown, I'm like [censored] here comes the double play, and even if you get another hit, and have two men on base. The next batter hits into a double play.
SDS. Now that it's September 1st, can you please stop with the daily missions that are common or bronze. I would greatly appreciate it.
Yes I know you can skip them, but it seems like I get them often.
The biggest issue I have with moments is not getting anything to hit. Spending 25-45 minutes trying to hit one HR on Veteran just flat out sucks. Then when you finally get a hold of one, the CPU outfielders turn on their Go Go Gadget legs and arms, and catch everything. The multi game missions need to let us go straight into the next game, no reason for us to go back to the menu.
I'm horrible at hitting. There is absolutely no reason to reward me for my awful hitting. It's okay if I strike out. I'll get better the more I play online.
I started playing DD in 2017. I tried my best to collect all the live series cards. Came close in 19. Finally collected the live series cards in 20. I didn't spend a single dime of real money. I just learned how to flip cards, and got lucky with a few cards in packs. I needed Degrom to finish the collection. I had 100K he was selling for 159K. I went through my card collection, and sold duplicates to get the extra stubs.
"On the warning track"
I would imagine this forum alone makes Victor drink every night.
Like Catman9186 said you have to be patient. Don't swing at the first two pitches. I try to not swing until I have two strikes on me. I've noticed if you swing at the first pitch 9 out of 10 times it's an out.
The Rockies always give me trouble. They especially Blackmon hit against the shift,
The Padres give me trouble as well.
I'll add money to the bus fare, because I'm in the same boat as all of you.
As I said yesterday. I had 14 out of 15 tickets for Trout. I collected Snell today, and finally have Trout. I thought I would need the nameplates and a few other tickets, but I didn't.
Glad that grind is over.
@Exotic_Combs said in Pci:
Anybody else been getting an unusual amount of good timing swings in the pci that result in a pop up to the catcher? Does anyone know why that is? It’s pretty frustrating
I was thinking I was going crazy. I started noticing this a few days ago. Especially in momens.
I usually don't struggle with player programs, but this one frustrated me. Pitchers hardly threw strikes, and when you finally got a hold of one, the center fielder would have his back against the wall, and stick his glove up, and catch it. Took me almost two hours to complete.
SDS, if we're only getting one at bat to complete a mission, please don't have a guy on first that the CPU ends up picking off.
I use to play conquest games on rookie. I was scoring 1-2 runs a game.
Switched to All Star I'll put up 5-7 runs a game.
I agree with you on the enlarged PCI on rookie.
Why do people who don't own a monitor think those who do, have their face pressed up against the monitor? Like someone else said I have my monitor set up the same way I would have my TV set up. Once I switched to a monitor I did notice my strikeouts went down. I still suck online, but I can recognize pitches better.

@kosmicwater3 said in Is hitting different for anyone else?:
ive been thinking the same i usually crush the cpu and just played a conquest game against the white sox ended up going 9 innings with 4 hits and one HR to win the game very strange to me also [censored] near had a double play every inning
I have experienced the exact same.
That's been happening a lot with me lately. And don't even get me started on the amount of double plays I've hit into against the CPU.
@wolfTex77 said in Conquest map should end when you beat all strongholds:
Conquest maps should always drop 1st and 15th of the month. Thank you SDS for the show paydays and please dont take offense to the above complaint the vast majority of us love our MLB The Show checks
Plus makes it easier to complete TA instead of playing 9 inning games all the time. It's a win win for everyone.
I work in the hotel industry.
