Replay Ettiquette

Look, if you hit a 3-run bomb to take the lead with 2 outs on the 8th pitch of an at-bat, take the replay! You deserve it. These kinds of moments are why we play the game. I need a moment to tamp down my rage anyway.

But if you are replaying meaningless solo shots, what are you doing? Even 450 foot dingers are a dime a dozen. You do that, I'm going to ice you. I'm going to pause the game for 2 minutes, and send you a message like "Congrats on the HR. The way you admired that replay I figured this was your first one."

Act like you've done it before!

Ok Brian McCann... J/K

For me, if it's a no doubter, we are watching it.

Agree. It’s stupid, people who rank high every season replay early/ok 350ft. wall scrapers. Happy to see those simple minds get easily amused.

Guys like Kyle make this a thing. All his minions who watch him see him replay everything and call everyone who dares to replay one on them toxic. Hypocrisy at its finest.

So two wrongs make a right? I get that its annoying when someone is childish but responding with childishness instead of just playing the game and retaliating with your own home run replay makes you the problem.

SDS

You should get 1 replay to watch a game. Not every HR

They put it in the game to be used...if you don't want to see it...don't give up the HR

@squishiesgirl a HR almost every inning in this event. It’s just corny. For the kids. Even more so when they do it while trailing

SDS

I would press L2 against you all day OP.

Yeah i agree maybe not EVERY HR

SDS

I’m going to start replaying my opponents homeruns to motivate me more.

SDS

I don’t have many people replay homeruns on me. Had a guy replay my no doubt one the other day and I did the same to him an inning later.

SDS

I never replay my HRs unless my opponent starts doing it. And at that point I’m just replaying out of spite. If I want to watch a replay I can watch after the game. No need to rub it in

SDS

I had a guy today hit 3 homeruns in a row (2 were bombs the 3rd a wall scraper) he replayed all 3. I get it my pitches are missing there mark. Very frustrating. I hardley ever watch my homeruns.

SDS

I have replayed my opponents HR a few times lol. Just something about seeing the balll fly over the fence in a good game.

SDS

I only replay ones that are ridiculously long. If I know for a fact it's 475+, I replay it just to see the distance, and I do that for myself and for my opponent. Seeing a guy get a hold of one and sending it into orbit is fun to watch on replay.

Edit: I'll also replay every single home run I hit if a guy does it to me first, especially if I'm up by like 5. I had a guy early/okay me to 3 runs in two innings, then I put up a 6 spot in one inning and replayed a 485 ft. bomb. He hit a game tying early/okay homerun in the 8th that went 390 ft. I checked and it was an 11 PCI placement and he replayed it. lol. I didnt get a chance to replay my walk off, unfortunately.

SDS

HR's are replayed IRL... Why not here?

There are more important things to be concerned with.

I have a feeling that dude has little man syndrome. You’re playing a baseball video game, not curing cancer. Let’s get some self awareness bro.

SDS

I think the only time I have replayed a HR first was when I hit back to back 480+ ft homers into the river against some guy in Pittsburgh. He was mad but I just went back to back into the river. Other than that I only replay if they do first on a wall scraper.

Lol I watch Kyle to learn the game and get better. I hate how he plays youth but he has some skill to learn
