Suspended?

SDS

Good Vibes Only. Do not want to make a negative scene. I apologize if what I did upset you, but realized after 24 hours that I can be a bigger person and move on. Thank you for all of your support and positive messages. It makes me want to keep doing what I do, spread positive vibes to all.

SDS

This guy is nothing but positive and loves to play the game. There is no reason why he should be banned! If he broke any rules he didn’t know about them.

SDS

SDS should give you a reason at least.

It says that I was Mission/Stat Boosting. Your suspension expires in 20D 23H 31M 52S.

Hello! As a content creator who has always been positive and all for making the MLB the Show Community a better place, I am wondering why I got banned. My team name is Prestige Grinders, which tells people that I'm using the people that I'm using to grind their stats. I could use better players, (Chris Sale, Rob Dibble, etc.) but I don't because they are not prestigable. I played about 10 events games on stream today. 2 Notable Games. 1 where a guy asked for a hit with Jackie (I believe?) and he got it. Lucky guy... He quit right after the hit. Secondly, I beat a guy 15-1, but I don't know why I got banned for scoring runs while he was running away from baseballs. I really don't know the means to why I deserve a ban for this. I have really big plans to positively encourage this game over the weekend and spread the good vibes with a 24 hour stream I've been planning for weeks. If I am getting banned for taking the stats that I never asked for, but instead received, I have no idea why I'm in the wrong. This very much shocks me, as there are many other people who do this, and are never punished. Once again, if you've ever seen my streams, I'm hardly ever complaining about the state of the game, but blessed to play MLB the Show 20, as a proud supporter of many of the games that Sony San Diego Studios have put together. I strongly recommend that my account at least gets looked into over the past 40+ games to show that I have not boosted, and that they can unlock my account for this stream that a number of my Twitch supporters have been working towards. Thank you for your consideration.

I have screenshots as necessary.

2-Where is the proof you didn’t boost?

SDS

Who knows. I guess it could have been worse. Saw someone got banned 365 days a couple weeks ago. I get why SDS is cracking down on it due to fair play, but on the other hand whose it really hurting. I could have a whole team of prestiged players and I still wouldn't get past 400 in RS (currently 399).

I am pretty sure there needs to be proof he DID boost, not vice versa, that isnt how it works. And then you go from there.

The proof is in the 300+ hours that I've streamed. I'm a teacher, a newly married husband, and a baseball coach. I don't have hardly any time outside of my stream to play this game. Many of my viewers can attest to this.

SDS

Hypothetically lets say you did do it. Why are they giving you that big of a suspension? Especially since this is prolly a first time for you. Free him SDS

SDS

SDS just needs to make prestige stats offline too. Double the amount requirements if needed. That would give us more reasons to play more offline modes. Remember the Griffey mission from 17-18. It was like hit 3 HR's online. most people would just quit or walk you after you had 2. 90% of those that got Griffey probably boosted that mission.

Innocent until proven guilty, sure. But it doesn’t make sense to ask the guy to provide evidence against himself.

Am I reading that correctly? 3 week suspension?

Most ridiculous, unjustified, nonsensical, reason for suspension I've ever seen. So now SDS is giving losers a channel to exploit by letting their opponents purposely get hits/runs knowing that a suspension is more than likely to follow.

Additionally, the length of suspension is outrageous. What is SDS smoking?

On a final note, I don't ever play Event games, so I'm not sure of the answer to this,...but doesn't mercy rule apply to Event games? If not, then they should simply incorporate it, and that would resolve everything, wouldn't it?

I just don't understand what freakin' difference it makes. Your entire team of prestige players could (and would) lose to any random gold team. Card ratings are pretty much meaningless.

Don't know if you can sell the prestige players, but even if you could it's just fake stubs. Not like cash in the pocket.

They have no money tournaments, that I know of, so you would get no benefit there...even if card ratings were meaningful...and that's a HUGE IF.

Sounds like you're beating yourself up for no reason. This game is a cluster anyway, take some time off and think about how unimportant it actually is...from what you wrote it sounds like you got a pretty busy life and shouldn't let this game be an anchor.

SDS

I can't believe they suspended a dude for scoring 15 runs. I'm sure top tier players could easily do that against mediocre players. Unless the guy has played him before and beat the tar out him.

SDS

Game history combined with team names looks pretty gd suspicious to me. I’m sure SDS can see the diving and inside-the-park HRs.

SDS

Ok I addressed this with the first guy who got suspended for boosting. It wasn’t his first offense, and all they have to do is look at game history and boom your done

SDS

This is no reflection of the OP outside of the game.

His team name is practically begging for stats. he didn't make it "hr and i will quit" and variations of that. He tried to toe the edge of the line by his team name.

Secondly, he is streaming these games, which SDS may see as encouraging bad behavior. Who is to stop everyone from changing their team names to his in hopes of free wins.

Thirdly, pretty sure OP knew whats up with what he was trying to accomplish with his post. Sounds like he had not received the notification of how long his ban was when he made this post. He sounds like he was angling for a un ban or at very lease a short ban. If he did know how long his ban was already and was looking for a removal of ban, 3 weeks isn't too bad considering you were streaming the alleged offense.

I guess the lesson here is, don't stream anything that could be considered questionable behavior.

SDS

Im sorry but this is the same company that let 2 sony partners cheat so one could get closer to world series, live on air. Yes they matched up but they talked about it and NOTHING was done. Nothing surprises me with SDS anymore
