Showdown=Impossible

SDS

C'mon man, seriously. Runner on third, deep fly to left center in front of the wall. Two perfect throws and my runner is out by two steps.

Next game. Runner on first, ground ball to first, throw pulls shortstop off bag towards right field onto the grass, spin, throw, runner dead by a full step.

These guys are legends and impossible to beat. So ridiculous and maddening.

SDS

I don’t play Showdown anymore. Too frustrating.

SDS

stage 2 showdowns are pretty easy. I have about a 70% success rate. Stage 1 showdowns are another story entirely lol

1st Inning showdown took 10+ tries to complete.
2nd inning took 3 tries
3rd inning took 2

If I can do stage 2, 2nd inning, and 3rd inning then anyone can lol

SDS

You just have to accept that there's a lot of built-in drama/rubberbanding, at least in the stage 1 Showdowns. The game simply isn't going to let you breeze through, even if you have perfect input. Try to identify when the game hits the youaintgonnadoshvt switch and wait it out best you can.

Ultimately, the mode is made to frustrate you into buying stubs for the exchanges. It's not supposed to be easy or fun.

For tag plays in showdown, I try to not go unless it's 100% he'll make it. I usually don't go if it's a sub 65-70 speed guy. From an average player here, showdown is a game of patience.

Some things that have been said before but
-patience. This is the number one thing you need for Showdown. Try only looking for one pitch, one location until you get two strikes.

  • no chances on the bases. Make sure you can 100% make it.
  • Draft to your strengths. Do you have trouble striking out? Go for high contact, vision, speed guys instead of low vision power guys.
  • Make sure to pick and equip the right perks
  • Haven't played a showdown in a while but the cpu loves to throw the ball low when runner on first or infielders are in. I usually sit low with a runner on first to try to avoid the double play. Those kill in Showdowns.

Lost the NL East showdown the very first time I tried it. Maybe one AL East showdown. Didn’t lose any inning showdowns, and haven’t lost any Stage 2 showdowns. And I’ve played at least 50 of them.

So 48/50. That warrants being called easy imo.

You’ve lost a couple of showdowns even though their easy? Interesting.

Yeah I'm mid to upper 90% for stage 2s but it doesn't change the fact that sometimes it's just B.S.

I've lost to first minibosses despite having amazing placements on 10/12 outs. Sometimes the sliders are just too stacked against you

Why not if it’s easy? What’s happening during that 4%?
