Exactly why we shouldn’t be losing RS points after a loss when there’s bs like this happening during games.

SDS

Ummmmm correct me if I’m missing something..... or are you trolling?
You threw (intentionally) a ball in the dirt , way outside. And it went to the backstop as is likely the case,( pulling that far down and away) and you let a run score.

The runner scoring was your fault, how it happened is irrelevant. Maybe he didn’t get the tag down? You can’t see that angle, and I get that part would be frustrating.

However think about the 1bman standing in foul territory catching the ball animation. It’s a visual flaw, my point is the game, inside , below the visual, decided you let that run score because of the pitch you chose to throw.

There is nothing to defend...he threw a ball in the dirt and a runner scored.

Always the players fault in a game that clearly has no issues.

Yeah you are right...never the players fault it is always RNG and SDS's fault. Good to know that none of my losses are my fault.

Did you not see the pitcher put down a tag with the runners arm still in the batters box?

He missed the tag, happens in real life all the time. What is the pitchers defensive stats? Was there lag? Is there latency issues?

SDS

This was the top of the fifth inning . . . you had five more innings at bat to score one run to tie and two to win. Come on, a one run lead is definitely not insurmountable, so why blame your loss on one play? Sure, it's frustrating, but it sounds like you let that get to you the rest of the game. And yeah, why throw something way outside to Sheffield? Perhaps you were afraid he was actually going to get a hit with two strikes to take the lead.

Also, maybe examine your CAP's defense at catcher. When I put guys like Carlos Santana or Gary Sanchez behind the plate, it just doesn't compare to Posey's superb blocking abilities for stuff in the dirt. Some people really sleep on defense ratings on certain positions like C or 1B that don't get the ball hit to them in high frequency.

Maybe switch to pure analog instead of meter pitching for increased levels of user input. It's worth trying at least if you haven't already . . .

About spending money on the game, that probably makes you invest more time and effort than you otherwise would. I know a lot of people do it, but spending $1,500 to get Mantle, Sheffield, and Biggio doesn't automatically increase your chances of winning in this game. Plenty of free cards out there who rake (i.e. POTMs, future stars, TAs). So maybe you wouldn't feel this let down if all you did was spend $60 upfront, but no one's stopping you from buying stubs in-game. Try giving it a rest for a day or two and think it over, that might help you see the bigger picture of issues like this a bit more.

But seriously, this forum has turned into a cesspool for players complaining about in-game issues and frustrations. One might wonder if that's the primary focus of users discussing MLB the Show 20 on this forum. It's a simulation video game; no one expects it to be a perfect experience, much less to win every game. If you don't like it, no one's forcing you to keep playing. Maybe the card drops throughout the year, including collections and new pack releases have sucked you in to spending tons of cash every year. Hey, it's making a profit for SDS. There's plenty of other things to do now and in the next few months, find something you actually enjoy I guess.

Pitchers generally have low defensive ratings. That's another thing that may account for it. It happens from time to time in-game as well as IRL.

But I'd say tag animations should be improved as far as the time from catch to tag. These players are professional athletes who have elite reflexes, I'd expect something better, at least according to ratings.

No . . . there's always going to be issues with gameplay, it's not a perfect system. All you complainers should find something else to do instead of spending all day playing a game you don't actually enjoy playing. Isn't that a bit counterintuitive?

Yeah, they wouldn't actually have to worry about RNG so much if they actually hit the virtual ball well consistently by getting good PCI placements. It really is a skill-based game despite what some around here would say.
