We want to win so bad and we're super competitive that the fun taken out of the game. We care so much about our records and stats. I have definitely been like this alot, yes the game has it's issues but I just realized that I have cards that I don't even use. I just use my main cards. Well we can have up to 4 different line ups and all with different cards. So I'm done woorying about my record and if crazy stuff happens in the game. Yes I want to win every game that I can but more importantly I want to try out different cards to see what its like to play with them, instead of using them for 3 AB's in a whole year. Yes I know events have you use different cards when they come out but they are usually not 9 inning games. So I'm creating different line ups and trying different cards I've grinded for or got in packs.

The Bottom line is, this games is atrocious. So many players in the community has multiple problems with it.
This game is freaking awful. I even took a few days away from it just to clear my head and see if it's really me being super bad at the game. Nope that is not the case this game plays awful. Fire your gameplay team!
Ok so I play online here and there, I don't have too much of a problem with it. But for instance with the programs from last year it seems like they really pushed online grind. The only offline stuff we could was conquest and I'm not a huge fan of conquest and moments I hope and pray that that we have more to do offline to help with is get through whatever program they gave us grind. Idk that's just my experience and my two cents.
I think as a community we can all agree that we hate moments.
Good /Okay should not be rewarded more than Good/Good.
No matter how many online games I play it how good my bullpen is or who I have in it. They seem to always collapse. I could face a team full of silver players and still late in games my gold or better bullpen can lose a game. I think I'm better off leaving my starter in for a full 9 innings Something visit up with pitching this year.
I really really do. A lot of things to get cards and to complete the programs you have to play online. Don't come at me with the whole "You can play conquest". I hate conquest as well hated it every since the show 17. I just played a few event games and I could just tell user input did not matter. My pitcher had a clean first inning then the very next inning he threw five straight balls. He walked the first guy but I wasn't trying to paint the corners I just wanted to throw strikes right in the zone and get the contact, But nope game wouldn't let me do that. Also my opponent pitcher was a walking my guys. I really felt the algorithm in that game where user input was non-existent for either of us. I don't think they would ever get online play right really wish there was another company that makes another baseball game.
Just a little humble brag I'm pretty proud of myself this year. Now every year since Diamond Dynasty started I put extra towards the game after launch. And I never completed a division collection whatsoever I've done starting team collection but never division collection. I can honestly say before the weekend is over I will have completed the NL Central collection without putting any extra money into the game after it's release. I'm so pumped and proud of myself I don't think I ever imagined me actually finishing a Division collection and on top of that the reward is Ernie Banks and I am also a die Hard CUBS Fan! I am so happy right now that I am so close. I just have to finish off the Cards and Brew Crew collections. I think I need about four more bronze for each team! Let's Go!!!!
Oh man it would sure be nice to open packs and get something else besides multiple bronze. I've opened probably about 50 to 65 packs so far and have pulled about 4-5 silvers the rest were bronze. No golds or diamonds. I'm definitely starting to lose interest in this game.

They just put him in the game and his buy now price is 5K already??? Wow
@dunkypunch25_psn said in Any tips on hitting?:
Are you using zone?
Yes I am using zone. Strike Zone camera. Pci is wedge, and I'm using diamond or altitude.
I'm not the best hitter by any means but man I've only been playing against the CPU and they are catching everything. I'm early, I'm late and I'm perfect and the ball finds the glove 9.5 times out of 10. Oh and did I mention I've only been playing the CPU. So conquest, feature program moments and showdown. I can't bye consistent hits no matter my swing result.
It's been a while since I've posted on here. But I've been playing quite a bit of this game. And with the life cycle of this game coming to a close. I just kind of want to give my thoughts in this game this year. First of all I got the early access I preordered this game. And I've played very consistently. But the biggest thing outside of the online play and all the craziness that comes with it. I think the 350K xp to get the the inning boss pack is too much. I really liked the 300 stars I felt like that was really attainable for all types of players casual and very hardcore players. So far out of all the inning bosses I've only been able to get Troy Glaus. I want Hank Aaron but look I have a job that I spend 8 hours sometimes more. Then I come home and play for a few hours before I got to bed and that's still not enough play time grind and put in that work to get reach 350K XP for an inning program boss. I get it there are people like youtubers who get paid for streaming this game and that's their job but for regular people like me who don't put real life money into this game after purchasing it and they want to have fun and still be competitive. It's really a struggle to try and enjoy it.
Also what the heck happened to the ability to go back to inning programs that have already pass? That's was a game changer right there. Why take that away? I know last year's game I missed like 1 or 2 innings and I was able to go back and grind online or offline to get those 300 star inning bosses. I really miss being about to do that.
@cudasport_xbl said in Got 5 Good/Good results in a row and not 1 accounted for a hit.:
No matter what I've played since the last patch was done good/good is an out, don't even think oh maybe!!! No, it's an out. But yet, an early swing that is not even on the pci can be a homer... other than that have to be perfect/ perfect to get a hit!!!
Which is pretty bad if you ask me. I honestly don't know their mindset at this company and how they are ok with how trash the hitting is.
All I was playing the Alan Trammell moments where you had to get 6 Hits with one XBH. Why did I get 5 Good/Good results in a row and not one of them were a hit? I guess timing really doesn't matter in this game especially in offline play. I bet if I got 7 perfect/perfect in a town none of them would be a hit either. Idk what their logic is over there at SDS but it ain't it.
I mean like no matter if it RS or Events. I'm facing lineups full of parallel 3 or better cards. I don't have time to sit in my gaming chair for 6-10 hours a day to play this game and grind until have card paralleled. Now I know BR is a more balanced mode as far as squad itself. But still I have to spend stubs to play that mode. I just want something where I can play against others online but I don't want to be at a humongous disadvantage because someone has a line up full of parallel 3 or better cards. While I only have 1 card at P2. I'm not gonna say that parallels ruined this game because it gives something players to grind for. But in the same breath I can see a huge disadvantage for players like myself who cant sit and play this game 6-12 hours a day.

Yeah just look at a Conquest (or vrs CPU) game on Rook, then Vet, then AS. You'll notice more balls as you go up, but on 3/2 counts less walks as you go up. Makes sense right? What could possibly be the reasoning for Moments pitchers to consistently get you to 3 - 0, 3 - 1 counts, walking you at least half the time if not more, when so far there's only been what, one Moment so far that counted "get on base x times".
Yeah, the total bases moments are the worst. As you get close, the pitchers seem to start every at bat 3-0. The runners ahead of you stop at second and you’re held to a single, or they’ll score but the play will be ruled a FC and you only get one bag regardless.
It's so ridiculous. I have things like this happen all the time.
If I got paid to rate this game this year. I would give it a 4 out of 10. What did IGN give it? I'm curious. I want to go back to MLB the show 17. That was a fun game and actually felt less stressful and you were rewarded for being good at the game as far as gameplay. Every year since 18 this series had gotten worse. I absolutely hate the perfect/perfect line out to infielders in moments when the ball you hit was up in the zone. That's so annoying to me probably the biggest annoyance with this game. So freaking frustrating!
You see this thread SDS????? I'm not the only one who feels this way about moments!!! Moments are straight garbage it doesn't play the same like other modes in the game. You all have really ruined the fun in this game the way moments play.
