The showdown sliders need to go back to neutral

SDS

It is very obvious that SDS mucked with the showdown sliders in the last patch. Exit velocity is an absolute disaster (way worse than any other mode) and timing windows are incredibly small for “veteran”. We get it, your programmers are third rate, but if you put something on veteran let it play like veteran.

SDS

Showdown isn’t hard.

SDS

They differently seem harder since the last update

Exactly.

Not really, no.

Drive by trucker is just amazing at the game so it doesn’t effect him. But I definitely agree. I had never lost a stage 2 showdown. But I’m only 50-50 on them now. Just lost a final showdown when I was only down 11-15. Didn’t get my first hit until 4 outs left. So many good-good and good-squared up outs.

I get it why they make it hard. I have only beaten stage 2 ever but it’s quick points and XP so makes sense why difficult. I stay far away from it,

I’m really nothing special at the game lmao.

Stage 2 showdowns are as easy as it gets.

I’m 62-11 in ranked and consider myself good at the game, for context to my opinion.

Showdown challenges and the mode itself, is easy. No disputing especially after they watered it down by giving you more runs.

What makes it challenging is how differently the game plays from other modes, mainly in the first stage of showdowns.

Had a good/good swing on a 4SFB slightly inside, almost dead center of the pci and the exit velo was a few mph lower than the pitch speed.. that’s awful and doesn’t happen in any other mode.

Is what it is, but it’s the sliders and gameplay in the first stage of showdowns that I feel like people have an issue with but the majority can overcome it pretty easily

SDS

Yeah, PCI placement seems to be essentially ignored at times. It's so inconsistent, though. Some moments everything is playing straight up and then the next one even P/P won't get you a positive outcome.

I'm definitely starting to get the "WTF else can I do?" deja vu I had with '19.

SDS

Showdown is my main mode, I play it alot. I haven't noticed any changes.

SDS

Showdown is easy still

SDS

Yeah, it didn’t seem like it was any different. Being able to get more runs along the way made it doable for me, but I do agree in principle.

Take away the whole idea of slider adjustment and just make the difficulties what they are, across the various modes.

If that means showdown bosses are on legend, so be it.

SDS

They took a page from Madden with Solo Battles for Showdowns.

SDS

The pitch speeds in showdown are absolutely faster than all star conquest. Maybe it's just the al but I can't get going in that 1. I've won the nl most tries

I haven't failed one in the past 9. I'm not all that good either. The stage 2 ones are really easy.

Being easy has absolutely nothing to do with it when anything you get ahold of flutters to the outfield or when you get a man on 1st you know a double play is coming no matter how high in the zone you make contact.

No one can correctly say what is easy or difficult for other people. We get it. You find it easy. So what? You are not everyone.

That just isn’t true. I’ve never had those issues in Showdown. If I hit a ball hard and in the air with a power hitter, it almost always leaves. And double plays are easy to stay out of, just get under the ball.

Many, many people find them easy.

And technically, with Stage 2 being on Veteran, they are easy. It’s an easy difficulty.
