Be honest: Do you have fun playing online?

SDS

My answer is no. It's frustrating, stressful and at times downright miserable when someone cheats or the game freezes, which happens far too often. Would be interested to get everyone else's thoughts.

SDS

My answer is yes. Winning feels great, losing feels like hell. Chasing the dragon is what keeps me logging in.

SDS

Yes, I am particularly enjoying the current LS event, it's nice to go back to players I used during the first week, enjoying hitting no-doubt Yeli and Alonso bombs.

SDS

The one thrill of victory makes up for the 9001 agonies of defeat

SDS

sometimes. I think everyone here can relate to this but when the game doesn't want you to will you will not win no matter what you do. other than that its not to bad. skill is kinda more prevalent this year which is a good thing.

SDS

I plead the 5th

SDS

When i can catch fastballs, yes. When I can't its miserable.

SDS

In my current slump the answer is no.
But normally, It is a love-hate relationship.

SDS

Events and BR, yes. RS, no.

I agree with that. I got tired of facing Kluber.
I tried the new event and one the first starters I faced was...Kluber..FML

I agree with this. A change to pitcher stamina/energy regeneration will fix RS easily. I honestly don’t mind starters coming out of the pen. I just hate that its ONLY Kluber/Newhouser/Oswalt/Pearson. That fix alone will make RS much more enjoyable

LOL, understandable!

SDS

I enjoy one or two games from time to time, but can't play online all day like I did on 2019.

SDS

I enjoy a game or two but I've realized the game gets stale and frustrating if you play it too much. It's fun for a few hours but not as a game to completely dive into.

As I stated in a previous post, I do different things to make the game enjoyable to me. I've always love competing against real people online but only with a level playing field. Win or lose that level playing field just doesn't seem right anymore. I have now found fun in dropping as low as I can and doing different things like putting an all gold lineup and other different lineups. If I need 3 RBI's with silver players I will load my lineup with silver players and try to accomplish that goal. If I need 8 innings with Pirate pitchers I will try to do that. Let me tell you trying to pitch with Pirate pitchers was a tough chore.

So I needed Cubs innings and 3 silver rbi's so first game I loaded 6 silvers including Schwarber along with Baez and Contrares. Obviously got the Cubs innings but only 2 silver rbi's. Next game I was going to get one silver rbi and quit. Got that early but my opponent was from Florida (again assuming he was from there since I think a lot of people put their city or state and his connection was awful which also screams Florida) and he was throwing Oswalt in one of those games he looked like he was throwing 120. Wanted to win that simply because of his poor internet. It was extremely challenging with all the bs but very satisfying to hand him a loss. I had my mind set on quitting but getting matched up with someone of that quality of internet just made me change my mind. I couldn't have got through that game against a god squad on the higher levels even if I would have had my starting lineup playing.

SDS

Yes. I love this game.

SDS

There isn't a much better feeling than being down 3-0 in a RS game going into the 8th only to pull together a rally and win 4-3. Gets the blood flowing. Keeps me coming back for more

Built in Come back logic won it for you, not skill.

SDS

Yes I do

SDS

Like a few have said here I’ve loved playing events but really don’t enjoy RS right now. I think it’s a combination of quicker 3-6 inning games, different lineup construction, easier (possibly better) rewards than getting to WS, and, maybe above all, I’m tired of facing Kluber every game.
