Which is worse

What is the biggest indictment on the phony in this game? No offense, but RNG's tend to be very obvious in their method sometimes.

Is it when your opponent appears to get gopher balls thrown right down the middle of PCI when you know you through a perfect pitch on outside the zone. Of course said opponent hits it out of the park for often the only run score in the game. Makes for real excitement there.

Or is it when you check-up on a pitch and blast it out of the park yourself and the PCI shows the ball coming in the zone no where close to where you swung? Said opponent then "rage quits" because they are likely sick of the same repetitive recipe.

I say it's when I get the lucky slot-pull and the AI animates a homerun that wins me the game. A ball I know I didn't come close to swinging at with hard contact. That, unequivocally, authenticates to me it's not about controller or player input...it's about the script.

Again, no offense, just polling the audience. Please don't bully me for my heartfelt sharing.

Check swings ruin this game more than rng does.

I played 4 games last night that, basically, were all decided with the zany animation I just mentioned. I wish..so wish...that as opposed to focusing on "glorious animation"..which this game is assuredly the king of..SDS would focus on realistic game play.

Where the AWESOME animation matches the ratings of the cards involved...the player/opponent ability, skill (or lack of), controller input, and what not. That's what I wish. If I just wanted to see an MLB game play out on my TV I would turn on MLB.TV.

It just took me 2 hours to play a game against a guy who was murdering every ball (no kidding 10-20 perfect perfects) I threw, shut me out as my guys hit nothing but wiffle balls, and took max time as often as he could. I know I'm not good enough to get to WS but it's starting to get more and more frequent playing against these guys who focus on being as annoying as they can be to try and get a quit to win a game.

just got done with a guy that had 1 hit through 5, the pitcher gets a hit, the next batter gets a chopper down the 3b line that he beats out. the next one grounds to 1B, 1B doesn't run to touch bag...just stands there...next batter...Grand Slam. Granted i was sucking a$$ too, but come on man!

SDS

The game is content driven. Until people stop spending money on it they won’t fix it. This game will be a cross platform joke of f they don’t fix it

SDS

yea im noticing these animations more often. Even to my advantage sometimes. But man still does not stack up to maddens animations. Thats all the game is, ANIMATIONS

Had a Ruth HOF game end last night when the computer suicide squeezed with 2 outs and Cano let it go through his legs and I lost by 1. Not really cool.

Yeah, I don't know how many games I've played where the opponent's pitcher get the winning hit. Sometimes on a homerun.

Regardless, almost always when that pitcher gets a hit you can kiss the game goodbye. Playing against a lineup of high Diamond Players and the pitcher with a 10 contact rating is the offensive hero.

That is where you get reminded that this game can be a complete farce.

That's why I haven't bought a copy of Madden since 2017. It took me a couple years to realize just how broke online game "simulations" truly are.

I remember grinding for that super-stud offensive lineman that would open up gaping holes for my RB's. Put them in that hole, run behind them, and get stuffed worse than before I spent countless hours trying to pick him up in some goofy marathon challenge.

Maybe the worst part of the "Diamond-Dynasty", Franchise, and FIFA Ultimate Team scheme is the whole concept is to grind for the perfect highest-rated players...and they don't perform any better than what you had in the beginning. Ironic.
