I posted this after seeing Chuck give that kid a hard time about getting picked off.

Can somebody tell me why the game wouldn't let me pick this guy off? Please humor me....

SDS

I can't humour you, but I can sympathise with you. Unless I'm missing something. How long were you holding L2? How many taps of O? What are your fielding throw settings? These might have something to do with it.

I'm certainly not disputing that you've got a case. Those two steps should definitely be ripe for a pick-off.

I wanna know this as well

SDS

That’s a big old pile of bullshit right there. It’s bad enough when people can consistently take the one extra step with no consequences, but two? That’s ridiculous.

SDS

it is ridiculous, I've had it happen to me before. I have better luck stepping off and catching them running than picking them off.

Look...give me some credit here. I know how to pick a guy off. I don't even lead off anymore online because you'll get picked quick this year.

A guy who I know presses his buttons correct said, "If you take a 2 step lead you're going to get picked every time". Which should be the case, right?.....

Except when you have an all diamond lineup against a level 23 bronze who clearly doesn't know that you're not supposed to take a 2 step lead.

I use button accuracy to answer the question. I tried it all and couldn't pick him off in 7 attempts

That is absolutely hysterical to get the same animation 5 times on 6 PO attempts. Is Morton really that bad at throwing over to first base?

SDS

I hit the 3rd base bag yesterday. My opponent fielded it while I was a quarter of the way down the line. He just stood there. I’m definitely sure he was trying to throw the ball. Definitely some quirky stuff goes on.

SDS

I like these posts with a video, they make the usual suspects around here disappear lol. Kinda hard to defend something when it’s caught on video.

SDS

That's bad.

Were you doing a quick pickoff move or deceptive pickoff move? The only thing i can think of is if Morton is bad at pickoffs and you are attempting a deceptive move each time.

SDS

Third rate programming strikes again.

SDS

Wow this is a new one. The one I have been experiencing as well is I hit a pitch with good timing but goes foul. Feedback initially says Good/Good but then switches to late/good.

Its happened to me multiple times playing online as well as playing showdown and conquest. I really think they throw some coding to give the lesser skilled player an edge.

SDS

Shockingly picked a runner off last week....moments after I told someone the game never allows that....not in the last three years I've played

SDS

That really is embarrassingly bad.

I often switch back to pulse pitching in this situation, and alternate between the three pickoff moves and stepping off. You should have had him.

No offence intended, just trying to help out as I didn’t know how much experience you had. As I said, I reckon you’ve got a case there for a legitimate complaint.

SDS

Lol don’t take time out of your day to disprove people like him. They disappear into another thread and play with each other elsewhere. They post videos of Vlad crushing a pitch outside the zone or pitchers getting hit and players making a play and forget the other 1000 that end like this https://youtu.be/ggGrmIf-SQE

SDS

I know we won't see them show up in this post so I'll take the liberty. "Git Gud" "Stop whining" "Game is fine" "Stop playing if the game is so bad"

SDS

That sucks

Kinda funny how they pick and choose who to target. They can’t argue with video proof so they hide.

Don’t forget the famous “It happens in real baseball” lmao.

I threw the kitchen sink at him
