I am way above average in this games. Many 12-0 runs, many World Series tags, many top players beat. I don’t wanna hear that garbage. That’s a lame excuse to try and make me look irrelevant. Use that on the players that haven’t played at a high level. Not gonna work in this case. Womp womp.
You can’t use that nonsense you say to these guys that never break allstar...not gonna fly.
Hey man. I'm with you on the faster pitch speeds and smaller PCIs, but this late in the games life cycle, what's the point? SDS knows the complaints (as they have been well documented at this point). Just seems like you are pissing into a head wind.
Your opinion has validity, but as Skep has pointed out, you always seem to do this after a loss. That was his point.
You claim to deserve 250 more wins than you have, but are speaking of beating several top players. If you think that you are getting screwed out of wins because you are playing (and losing) to "lesser" opponents, couldn't the same be said for your wins vs several top players? Do they feel screwed when the "Little Billy Code" goes in your favor?
Yes the game is a little off, and honestly, I agree with your assessment that they are trying to make everyone happy (as I've been saying for years). As a company that is trying to sell as many copies as possible, isn't the point to try and make everyone happy? It's tough enough to make the "elites" happy, but they comprise such a small amount of the overall population of the game that SDS cannot ignore the majority of it's player base.
I believe with these ESL tournaments and "custom leagues", SDS is setting themselves up for their best chance to make "everyone happy". With the game going cross-platform and with the next gen consoles right around the corner, I believe we are going to see the return of Online Franchise and a distinct separation between "casual" and "competitive" gamers.
I think that Ranked Seasons will continue as it is (let's call it Regular Season for right now), being the "catch all" for H2H games, but there will be another mode (let's call it Post Season for the time being) where the ultra competitive gamers (like most of those in the ESL tournaments) can flex their muscles for increased rewards (maybe like COTW-autographed bats, 50k stubs etc) in something like a hybrid between BR and RS, where there are tiered levels with rewards (RS) but there is a loss limit (like BR).
So say you've reached WS in Regular Season and have some time to kill. You hop onto Post Season and can play only against other players that have made WS that season. You win 3 games (without losing 2), you get 25k stubs. You win 6 games (without losing 2), you get 50k stubs. You win 9 games...you see where I'm going. When you lose 2 games, you get kicked from the "session" and have to restart your run.
Just an idea obviously, but with the increase in "new" players to the franchise, and the fact that they are throwing their hat into the egaming ring, I can see them giving us 2 differing online 9 inning game modes.
Or at least that would appease many folks maybe??
