I can understand why Ranked, random games are played like speed-ball, I get that. Time is a factor.
But why oh why do you punish 2 friends, that love the game of baseball and all its glory, limiting them and being forced to throw a pitch every 5 seconds?? Who cares if we want to watch all the cut-scenes and take in the atmosphere?
I hope next season you understand and allow this on the PC (if its indeed being released on all platforms).
