Has anyone else had a problem with fielders not being able to run to the ball? Outfield jogging and not able to get to fly balls. Running to spot to catch fly ball stop to soon and they stand there like they can't move 2 steps and miss easy pop ups. Or how about a ball laying on the ground and they run all around the ball without picking it up. And worst of all the one that probably makes me the maddest. Bobbling ground balls in the infield and and fielder casually tries to recover, allowing easy outs to turn into base hits.
For the last 2-3 weeks I can not get a good hit in any online or showdown modes. Pitches right down the middle. With Good timing and I get ok, weak, pop up or chopped hits.
First day lol
What about baserunners going rogue? Is this happening to everyone else too? My runners sometimes just do what they wanna do. Steal without be told. Over run the bag and take so long getting back they get thrown out. Stuff like this has killed me in games. I don't mind if I make a bad call and my runner gets thrown out. But when David Ortiz decides he wants to steal 2nd base against Yadier Molina. I have a problem with that.
What makes me mad is my fielder can block a ball up. Right in front him and won't pick up until the runner is safe. CPU field can dive, ball hits off his body. Get up, pick the ball up and make the play before my runner with 97 speed can get to bag.
I've had runners try to steal without me pressing anything. And getting back to a base no matter how close the runner is to it, is impossible. Can't tell you how many times I've had runners thrown out that should have been able to get back on bag before the defense even throws the ball.
I hate getting punished for winning. I don't mind moving up in competition, but for the last month I can't even get an opponent that's in same class. Much less close to my level. My players on average are between 83-87. I have 2 99's. And every opponent I get matched against have all 99 squads or close to it. I thought playing weaker players might help me get a better matchup. But nope, matched me with a diamond level 87 player and I just made it to silver. Is there any way to get a better matchup so I can at least be competitive in games?
All the time. Swear I thought there was some kind of cheat code or something. Every time they pause I would say. That @#$%^ is putting a cheat code in. And sure enough when they resume the game. Dinger ️
So true. I've seen more miracle plays made in showdown than any other game mode. Like every player on the field is Derek Jeter all the sudden. And if that's not enough my runners decide to do whatever they feel like doing to help out. Runners stealing with no command. Not running on flyball that is obviously going to drop. And getting back to a bag takes forever.
Ok thanks. New to the game. I thought directional hitting kept the hitting zone just in the center.
