How can a game with this amount of simulation and RNG be considered competitive?

SDS

Apparently all you need to beat a player of higher skills than you is persistence. Like, you could play a better player and lose a bunch of times but due to the simulation and RNG you could make those games sweaty or even get lucky and win one or two. There’s no question the Simulation has a big influence and I don’t see how playing this game online would be considered competitive. It’s not pure PvP.

Shouldn’t the better player always win?

SDS

Oh my god

SDS

The better player shouldn’t always win.

That’s not how baseball works, that’s not how any sport works, and that’s not how life works.

SDS

In a perfect world yes, they should.

But tell me Ryan, how can you make this game guarantee the better player wins everytime? The only way to do that is to make all bad contact out, and all good contact hits. Good contact cannot be outs, and bad contact is always out.

Otherwise, every blue moon, someone will get lucky because their opponent lined out or they happened to bloop one in. That's the only solution to guarantee the better play wins everytime

Well, it is a baseball simulation after all. And as the saying goes, everybody wins 60, everybody loses 60, it's what you do with the other 40 that matters. The better player will win a good amount of the time, but it's not that crazy for the worst team in MLB to sweep the best team in a midsummer series. If your timing is off a smidge, you'll notice it more in baseball than other sports. It's a game built on frustration and overcoming it, and the beauty of it.

This forum has become a bitchfest every time someone loses a game to an opponent who they thought was a lesser player.

Exactly. Stop crying about a video game. It doesn’t matter. At all.

The best players don’t win every time in any game or sport.

I could be an Uno god, but I wouldn’t win every game.

I ask myself the same question every time I'm counting the Chance and Community Chest cards like a boss and still end up losing.

How many accounts do you have Ryan,
Can you find another hobby?

Here's what I dont understand. EVERY YEAR people complain about RNG nad the game 'catering' to 'Little Billy' players; yet the SAME peoplw that complain buy it EVERY single year.

If you 'KNOW' its not going to be based on ability; why do you still buy it?

Where did I say I just lost to a lesser opponent? In fact, I haven’t played online for months. Keep making assumptions though.

The game has only been out for, well, months.

So you’ve never played online I guess.

Your right, and I quit playing online after the first patch. Do you have anything to contribute to the topic of the post or just want to troll?

How can a poster with this many accounts posting the same thing every day be considered worth listening to?
