Why is CPU so easy?

SDS

It can't just be me. Playing franchise on dynamic difficulty, HOF+ pitching, Legend+ hitting, and winning 13-3 with 4-5 HR? 20 games in, 16-4, 7.3 runs per game and 63 HR's. 2nd place team has 35 HR's. I've never had this problem. Played on HOF/HOF last year and won more than I lost, but was still a good challenge day in day out. Many more close, low scoring games where you had to sweat them out and felt rewarded for a late clutch hit or pitch. Feels like I've clinched the division in April this year, which is not at all exciting. Be one thing if I was on All-Star, but there's really nowhere left to go on difficulty unless I want 13-10 games. Really hope there's some difficulty patching in the works. CPU throws so many balls the pitch counts are in the 50-60's by the 3rd inning. Strike zone needs serious work too.

SDS

U probably playing strike zone cam?

SDS

You could try adjusting the pitch speed sliders. Other than that, I’d say try playing online. Eventually legend can be mastered but other people is a different story.

I know lag can be an issue, but once I hardwired in I could actually enjoy this game online. That was years ago and it’s still better since then.

SDS

Default cam, strike zone 3

SDS

The devs don’t put a whole of time and effort into the franchise mode... trust me even the CPU is more challenging in all the DD content.

I agree, legend hitting is just too easy. Way too many home runs and hits

Not for nothing, I just find DD to be kind of lame. People complaining about realistic results when you have 9 v 9 diamond legends playing against each other and every guy with 80+ power... it’s like HR or die.

SDS

If thats the case adjust your sliders. That's the point of playing offline, you have control to play the game how you want

SDS

The Show has always offered a good CPU challenge, no reason that should ever change... Pretty discouraging hearing even legend difficulty is easy in 20 .. WTF...

SDS

I mean you're playing a computer program. If you want a real challenge try competing against another human.

What team are you using? I used the Yankees to do a MTO and their record at the end of the season was 141 and 21 lol

This. For reference I just realized TA Otoni has a lower ERA for me online than he does vs the CPU on rookie. This is after about 50 starts

WRONG ... the Show has always offered a good challenge with it's AI ... I get more of a challenge through that than most competition out there... Plus I don't always play online because the quality isn't that great... So you're acting like that's the normal which is BS, I've been playing the Show since the PS2 day's and it's offered a VERY good challenge with it's AI especially on the harder levels... Don't believe me then accept a challenge, go back to the Show 19 and put it on Legend difficulty pitching and hitting, good luck with the easy AI ....

If I wanted to play AI then I would charge up my Nintendo 64 again. I find zero fun in playing a computer. I must just be a little more competitive than you. Good luck though bro to each their own.

Why does everyone attack everybody? They asked a question about a mode that you clearly don't play, you threw in a completely irrelevant comment into the conversation and then seem pissed off at their answer? There are a lot of people who don't play online simply because of the people that are online, if that is how you want to play that is fine but the throw-in comments to try to degrade someone else because they don't want to play online and deal with the people and BS that happens with it is just unnecessary. I don't mean to come across as attacking anyone, and if I read your reactions to the post wrong I apologize for that. It is very difficult sometimes to get the meaning behind what people are saying when it is just letters on a screen and you cannot see their reaction or gestures. But it seems like there is always someone attacking someone else for no reason - if the post isn't interesting to you just move on to the next one, there's no reason for online players to try to put down offline players or vice versa. Everybody just wants to have a fun experience playing a game that Everyone likes and wants to be fun

You know nothing about good AI if you’re going back to the 64 days ... As far as being more competitive, doubt it ...

Cubs, Schwarber has 11 HR’s in 21 games. On pace for 80+.

SDS

Because you are sooo good stop playing with dynamic difficulty on and play on the hardest difficulty with all the slider tuned in the cpus favor.

Yeah the variety in online is just riveting. Opponent starts Kluber, if he gets tired or is pinch hit for in a close game in comes Wood or Garrett. And the comment about being more competitive because you play a virtual version or a real sport online has me dying!

Well we aren't on a real live baseball forum. If we were i would talk about the same competitive drive. But no, we are on a video game forum where grows azz men whine about the AI being too easy. We are all losers here.
