Question, does anyone actually enjoy moments

SDS

Does anyone here actually find them fun or just something they have to suffer through to get the rewards?

SDS

You have to suffer and get through them for the Xp and Rewards...
Robinson, Hernandez, Dawson...just to name a few are god awful

SDS

I dont mind some off them. The are a nice break at times from actual games where you just get thrown in. Yes some can be frustrating but the rewards out weight this in my view

SDS

Way better than getting 2XBH with Daniel Nava. Not getting them. Then restarting a CQ game.

SDS

I've been pretty vocally against them since last year. I much prefer stat missions.

SDS

I think moments in general aren't a bad Idea. I enjoy them sometimes. It's the way they put them in the game. There are only so many opportunities in a baseball game for something to happen. So you have a lot of repeated moments. For example, get 5 hits in 4 games, 2 xbh, hit a homer. Its boring to do the same thing every week just with different cards.

Complete game shutout against the Athletics with Rookie Eck is the bane of my playing.

It sucks that while doing the Moments, you don't even get innings for TA. I can understand not doing it for hitters, but we're pitching complete games on some of those pitching missions. Hook us up with those innings.

I want the stat grinds back.

SDS

I like them, and look forward to more of them. I don't like the multi-game ones as much though.

These are sooo much better than having to complete Neil Walker 4 hits, or Ripken 2 hits 2x 2bs, 2x runs, 2x RBI. Certainly better than getting 15x 2bs with Joe Torre.

SDS

I enjoy this game very much, but I do DESPISE Moments. They are absolutely zero fun to me.
They feel like “work” and video games shouldn’t feel like “work.” But I also like completing everything in the game as best I can & need the Stubs/XP, so I torture myself with them.
The only ones I “enjoy” are the ones that take no longer than 30 seconds. There was a Jackie one - Get 1 hit - and I got it off the very first pitch and done! On to the next. The joy lies in just getting it over with as fast as possible.

SDS

I’m surprised a lot of people don’t like restarting a mission over and over until the computer lets you get lucky to accomplish whatever it is you’re trying to do.

Stat missions were better imo. Showdowns was a much, much, much better idea than missions. You win some, you lose some.

SDS

Nava, walker, and Ripken were bad grinds, but while you were doing those missions, you could be working on other missions simultaneously. Second, you could extend the game if you needed to do so, pick your own ball park (Fenway for doubles), and pick your opponent (orioles). Lastly and I’ll give sds credit for this...after they heard the backlash of those missions, they changed all future missions to xbh’s...nothing was worse than needing that last double and smashing one over the wall.

I much prefer stat grinds to missions when the stat grinds are set up properly. Showdowns could be good, but I have yet to beat a divisional showdown, so for me it’s worse than Nava.

SDS

I like them. For the most part I don't struggle super hard with them, unlike last year where the sliders were far worse. For the 3B CAP moments you had a Josh Donaldson moment, and the PCI was microscopic, and when you did a play vs CPU on the same difficulty vs the same pitcher, the PCI was far larger. This year seems far less rigged in the moments, though sometimes they still can get you.

SDS

I don’t like them either mostly because it plays differently then the rest of the other modes. I dislike the multigame moments and multi inning pitching moments. I do like the “reach base” instead of hits so the walks actually help.

SDS

Some of them can be fun but I hate moments that have nothing to do with RBIs but they stick a runner on base and you gotta watch the pitcher throw over 5 times every pitch.

SDS

I do, but yesterday within minutes of doing some of the Jackie ones, i almost broke a second monitor!

I enjoy a lot of them but there are some that drive me nuts. I definitely prefer single game moments over multi game moments due to the ease of restarting them. Total base moments have kind of been the bane of my existence. Those require everything to go just right.

Yeah, those are annoying, along with runner on base who only advance a single base on what would be a double causing you to stop at first and be robbed of an XBH.

SDS

Not that anyone cares, but.. hell no, I think they are stupid, the only thing I hate more than moments is Showdown, which is moments but without mulligans.

SDS

I wouldn’t mind moments as much if the pitching was realistic. By that I mean have them try to pitch to you not Completely around you. Clearly player X didn’t get 2 Homeruns/Doubles/Hits/ etc in a real game with 0 balls in the strike zone. I should NOT have to swing 3-0 at a ball nowhere near the zone just to keep an AB going .... that’s not realistic baseball. At a minimum if a pitcher walks me I should get some progress towards the mission.

SDS

I enjoy hitting moments.
