4th Inning Fathers Day Structure is so Wrong

SDS

Whoever came up with that idea of the 4th Inning Fathers Day structure, should either be fired or never allowed to do it again. Did they even test this out? I mean test it for frustration and waiting for loading time. I mean they say to get a hit in a game but it is more of an at-bat. And Most times if you miss the first time you're resetting the challenge anyway. I understand the grind but the grind is waiting time for everything to load. More time is wasted in loading than playing. Please NEVER do this again. There has to be an easier way to get the challenges in and let us grind it out in a fun way.

I write this as I wait through the reloads and I play for 10 seconds and wait minutes in between re-loads, then I get back and the pitcher throws it to first four times before throwing a pitch. Or I have one at-bat and get hit by a pitch. Or there is never a pitch thrown over the plate to get an extra-base hit. And guess what I waiting again for everything to re-load. Sometimes the gameplay just needs to play for the mode, let us just have fun playing and not waiting.

Sorry but I'm curious what others think about this? And maybe SDS will read this. Fat chance that will happen.

SDS

SDS

The team did so well, I actually got two at bats with him, and completed that moment without his dad ever batting for me. All the moments were super easy.

SDS

I just got really frustrated in the first few. Not done yet with them all but how the first few were structured seems ridiculous. I Just finished the 3rd one and will give up for the night, took way to long with all the resets. I will go at it again tomorrow.

SDS

I did the games, Rodriguez, Biggio, and Griffey’s in 1 hour. Still have the impossible Bichette one, Gwynn, and Vlads. Hopefully those take 30 minutes

SDS

The Gwynn challenge is a quality of life abomination - had to be a mistake. (Get the hit with Tony, then dashboard with his kid until you get it).

Other than that, the format is a little goofy, but no big deal.

SDS

It was a bit annoying how it was set up, but honestly, I still enjoyed it, I thought it was a great content drop.

Unless you get a cookie for a pitch on your first try with Gwynn Jr. I hit a tripple to tripples ally.

SDS

I thought they were pretty easy. Hardest part was getting out of the first inning with Dereck Rodriguez. Chipper kept hitting home runs against me 😂😂

No doubt - really great weekend for content. Making the moments multiple games when it’s pretty unnecessary (Gwynn in particular) is a nuisance, but doesn’t negate that it’s been a great content drop overall.

SDS

This wasn't as hard as some of the other moments (to me), wish they had more of these types with these types of rewards.

SDS

Game restarts faster than the loading screens.
How rediculous. If you don't get the first hit for Gwynn you still go the next game.

SDS

All in all, i think the idea was good but the execution was poor. In a one game mission, clicking restart takes about 5 seconds, while reloading in multi-game missions takes over a minute. Reloading for 1 at bat is really frustrating. The moments themselves weren't all that hard.

I hope all of this doesn't discourage sds from creating more moment sets like these. The idea is really fun, but please keep them in one game so we can restart quickly instead of staring at the loading screen for a long time

SDS

I honestly hate this but would prefer it for every moment and making them harder also and by harder I don’t mean [censored] 15 triples with Yady Molina or something just putting the pitching at legend. This and actually making the low power contact cards a bit better and actually useable.

SDS

Just a couple of attempts with the Gwyyn's and I most likely will have to pass on these cards. Not worth the frustration.

SDS

And all the loading time.

SDS

My gripe is how it was laid out. I love the moments sometimes, especially when you can smoothly move through them. But at least the Bichettes, Gwynns, and Vlads were set up wrong. Why not give each the father and the son a full game to get the hits? Not one at-bat and then coming in in the forth and getting maybe three at-bats. That's if you're not hit by a pitch when you need one more hit in the ninth. Let me not get a hit rather than ending it for me rubbing my arm from getting hit as the game resets.
