I don’t mind the archetype idea but I thinks it’s crazy that they didn’t implement and archetype with catcher or 1st bas as a primary position, especially catcher since that’s typically the weakest position in the game
Also, I won, sure the game was closer than it needed to be but I won 🤷🏽♂️
That’s good, but seriously, I hate that the game is moving away from simulation, you’re telling me you’ve never gotten a very early hit. Yeah, they are very annoying, but it’s just something you deal with, thank you for your time.
Simulation is a bad thing.. go play ootp if you want sim. In an online video game User input should be the most important factor by far.
Simulation as in realistic, not me watching the game play itself
I know exactly what you mean, sim and realism is a bad thing and takes away from user input. You know what’s not realistic? Me hitting .330 overall through 400 online games last year or me hitting .460 with finest bellinger through 400 at bats, that’s not realistic. So what happens then? Simulation factors will take away from my input to make numbers more realistic.
You’re not actually hitting a bat with a ball, just playing a video game that simulates you doing so. If the whole thing is inescapably a simulation, at least let’s have a realistic one. I’d guess if the game accurately simulated bat on ball physics and didn’t feel like every single game was played on the moon, you wouldn’t be hitting .460 with Bellinger over a significant statistical sample size. Let’s be honest here - If you’re the kind of guy who chooses Shippet every game and home hunts, you’re quite happy with simulation factors influencing outcomes in game anyway.
I avoided Shippett as much as possible, miss me with that, I’ve played and beaten you multiple times before.
Quite probable, but did you have good input?
Yup, you’ve even asked me multiple times for tips on how to get better
That was a flippant answer, I was being tongue in cheek. That said, my point remains - I’ve no idea how this game is supposed to be fun when it’s designed in such a way that any pitch in any location can be hit hard, or even pulled. It’s totally unrealistic. You may believe that simply placing the PCI in the correct spot and swinging with good timing entitles you to a hit, as that is the correct way to reward “good user input”. I say, if the pitch is in a certain location and executed well, even if you do make contact, it should never be a home run and rarely a hit, as in the example I have previously given. It’s not about detracting from user input, it’s about making a game that adheres to real life bat and ball physics, an area in which the show frequently fails to deliver, which frustrates me personally more than anything.
This game is designed to be 80/20 in favour of the hitter, which is pure stupidity in a game where the greatest players barely succeed 30% of the time at the plate. It’s not because they made a game where user input is king that you can hit .400 with Bellinger through 400 AB. It’s because they made a trash unrealistic game that is unbalanced in favour of hitting at the expense of pitching and defense. It’s because even if a pitch is a foot outside and breaking away, you can pull it out for a home run. It’s point and click, like CoD baseball.
That’s what I thought but nope, not according to the faq question (the answer though is another story).
We will work to clarify the FAQ.
But cross-play and cross-generational play was enabled in the Tech Test. So if you likely have already played someone from a different console on a different generation if you participated in the Tech Test.
SDS won't do anything, at least for me they didn't. Took screen shots of the TA for Orioles wasn't registering Orioles hits or Olsen XBH's. Sent in a screen shot of Olsen having like 15 XBH all by himself. Waited for 2 weeks to see if they would credit me those and never did. Just totally pissed me off!! Smh
Why isn't the rating next to the person's name on the opening screen? Have that and their record. That way there's no need to have to jump on TSN to try to find their rating -- keep it all in one place.
Because the entire system enabled disgusting behavior from people like Skepple. Plus its meaningless. For example last year and even this year. I would do Affinity innings with some crappy players just to rack up innings. I would take way more Ls than usual and my BA dips. Then I would switch to my Good team and all of sudden I am winning and I make WS.
People like Skepple would look at my record and by like he is horrible because a dude like him is so desperate to win that he couldn't conceive of the possibility dudes might not being playing to win every game.
Skepple wants to know what Rank you are at to know if he is playing on AS or HOF. Can't you comprehend what you read.
Just a quick QOL request for showdown, when adding a new perk to our run can we scroll through to see what we already have? For the most part I remember what I have but by the time I get the 7-8th mission it’s be nice to have a reminder of what perks I have so I can choose the best one for the rest of the run
You can back out of the selection and look at the next mission and see what the best perk is to take. This is key when earily on as some perk drafts are hot garage but if you have to pitch sometimes good to take.
Last night I went back and played a game of 19, 20 is soooo much better, fastballs in 20 seem faster, off speed pitches in 20 are slower, the pci changes are amazing in 20, heck even the strike zone in 20 is better, in 19 the zone is black and it’s actually quite distracting. You don’t have line outs galore in 20, if you can consistently square up the ball you’re going to get rewarded, you don’t have the ridiculous constant bloops that 19 has. The analog meter in 20 goes so much faster which is nice. 20 has issues with fielding and to a lesser extent pitching but overall 20 is a much better game.
Is this Skepple guy Ramone's boyfriend or something? I casually read this forum sometimes and you post on every thread. Your head must be so far up SDS's @nal canal that you can't see anything from anyone else's perspective.
The game is CLEARLY and significantly flawed in many ways. I'm honestly curious why you feel the need to completely ignore all the flaws and consistently blame all the other gamers for the problems.
I hope someone hits an okay / early grand slam off of you today. Wipe Ramone's K umoff your face, Christ.
@Crimson-Dawn-X Any cards you get that are unsellable like TA packs that you already have locked can be exchanged or qs.
If you open a 20 pack and get dupes of cards already locked, those can be sold on the market
Ok. But what if I get a duplicate of one of the LS Golds that I got in the Jump Pack?
Can those be put on the market?
As long as the duplicate came from a usually sellable pack, no matter where the original came from, you can sell it on the market
