Bad apples

SDS

Just my opinion. You may or may not agree. That’s fine.

I just played a game where there was no respect whatsoever for the game. My opponent was bunt dancing every batter, bunting almost every other batter, stealing at all points and replaying home runs. I’ve see people post about players like this but this was my first experience with them. I can see why the gripe.

The only reason (again my opinion) is that they have no respect for the game at all or for others. It is this type of bad apple that ruins the whole bunch. They are toxic. I tried to finish the game but it’s just not worth the aggravation. Be on the lookout for these apples cause they’re out there to ruin the game.

Unfortunately I have found the only way to combat these types of players is to sink to their level.

Done it a few times and it seems they dont like playing against players who do similar things they do

Funny how that happens

Why did this upset you so much? Who cares what computer animation someone does, what matters is pitching and hitting.

What they're really out for is to try and get in your head, to make up for their mediocrity. Nothing more aggravating than giving up a homerun to a clown, right? They know this and try to induce a ragequit this way.

My advice would be to ignore it, don't replay anything yourself and just hit the ball. 9 out of 10 times when you play unfazed and score a few runs they end up dashboarding instead of you, because their tactics haven't worked.

That’s not his gripe, it’s the action which is absolutely infuriating. Sounds like you might be part of the problem!!!

Facts. The second I see an opponent acting like this I already know they're trash.

I hate it. It's hard enough for me to beat people online let alone putting up with childish behavior. I had a guy bunt with every single person while I was trying to prestige Felix. I tried throwing out of the zone but he was a [censored] wizard at pulling in the bat at the last second, crazy stuff.

Very annoying to play these players. As others have said these people usually are not very good at the game. If people do this to me I replay every HR in its entirety and honestly it’s a very satisfying feeling when you beat them.

SDS

The word “toxic” needs to go away. That word gets misused way too much.

SDS

Its just annoying. Thats it. Doesnt disrespect some code you may have about a video game. Go get the win.

SDS

Winning this video game seems very important to some people. Not me,I hate to lose anything,but it is a virtual game.

SDS

Some of the streamers that were dropping twitch packs over the weekend replayed every homerun of theirs. I guess that's an acceptable thing to do.

I sound like a broken record but if you play this game online, you are going to have to deal with people like this. It just comes with the territory.

SDS

Ok let me make something clear here. Yes it’s just a video game and no it didn’t upset me. As I said previously, I just quit to avoid the aggravation. Hence, before I got upset. As for the game, yes even though it is a video game, that doesn’t change the fact that there’s a lack of respect.

On another note, I believe this is the perfect place to use the term “toxic” and for the record, this is the first time I’ve ever used that term.

SDS

This rarely to never happens to me but at release it was bad as you can get.

SDS

At least they didn't use up all the pause time in the quick menu, inexplicably making it so YOU couldn't pause to make bullpen moves without risking forfeit, and called time or stepped off the mound LITERALLY at least 30 times like jrod69winning.
