I give up.

This was the first year I decided to really try out comp in DD. The aluar of the signature Chris Sale was too much temptation to pass on. Well after about 3 months are off and on again attempts I finally sat down to try and grind for real. And after 15 games where I would win two and lose 3 and go no higher than 600 I quit.

I'm done with the bs of the down and away off the plate home runs. I'm done with the glitches that cause you to miss balls and make bad pitches. But first and foremost I'm done with matching against people who seem to have no other expenses or things to do in their life other than a virtual baseball game. Its gotten to the point where I can determine off load if I will win or get crushed, "Is the other player on the prestige xp rank then get the lube ready". After 4 days of no progress I give up. Its just simply not worth the energy to play against people who might be better than me., but most likely just spend more time and more on this game than I can.

Add in that the only other options of things to do in DD is play against the AI in missions that are so blatently phoned in and designed just to be irritating or grind the exact same showdowns or conquest games until your tumbs bleed and fall off from the repetitive motion I feel there is nothing for me in DD. Increase the apathy by including the fact that this year's RTTS is a cut and paste of last year with "in game progression:|" and once you made it to the bigs there is no reason to play anymore.

I'm done. For the first time since the MLB the Show series has been published I have deleted the game before the next version game out. Its hit an all time low for me with this game and unless San Diego Studios really wows me with the next gen version I think I'm out for a while on this franchise.

Thanks for listening to my Ted talk l, and I would love to hear if anyone else has the same opinion as me.

I mean... this is your first year playing competitively, so expecting to make WS in that first year is to high a goal.

I started in 2016 and didn't make WS until 2019.

Not saying there aren't a ton of issues with the game, there is a laundry list of annoying/stupid things. But my point still stands.

Being prestige xp doesn’t mean you’re good.. a lot of prestige players suck, everybody gains XP

That is true the point I was making with that is that they either spent either more time and/or money with on the game. And I feel that there is weirdness and bugs that happen more frequently when playing prestige players.

So are you saying the person with more experience and who puts more time/practice into the game shouldnt be better than a 1st year player? I wouldn't give up after 1 year, just play more and get more experience, this game has always had a steep learning curve.

SDS

tl;dr:

OP decides to load into "RANKED" seasons and expect to mash the same as him playing Veteran/AS in Conquest against the CPU...gets creamed in Wild Card and decides to make a cry post on here. Par for the course.

SDS

See you tomorrow!

? I’m still waiting for the point to be made

Why would you be done? You quit? I’ve never tried to get to WS, I play enough to get the first diamonds and quit. I think I could make it, after a long grind but I’d prefer to play the other content like events and moments. Also I play other games so I don’t spend all week playing. If I did, I’m sure I’d get there but i wanna play war zone too lol

This is my 1st year playing this game, so a lot of this is new to me... But it took you 3 years before you made it to WS level? How many times did you make it that year and since?

I'm experiencing so much online BS that I can't imagine ever making it. I got to 700 this last season, this season I'm legit in the 400's right now after going like 2-10 or something. I'm losing most of my games by 1 or 2 runs and right now am going through a spell where I can barely see a 93mph fastball from Greinke and if I am up by only 1 or 2 in the 8th 9th it's a guaranteed loss.
Are guys who make WS just scoring a ton of runs?

I made it to WS every season besides the 1st season in 2019. I've made it to WS twice this year, but mostly because of a lack of trying. I grinded ranked a lot early, but mostly switched to events, (as well as a lot of showdown). I've only now started playing ranked a bit more again.

In general, probably most people make it by scoring a lot of runs, but I've never been an elite hitter, I usually hit around .280-.300, but I'm good at taking walks and can usually manage a .360 OBP.

Instant gratification casual mentality at its best.

Can we play a friendly? I want to see where I stand against a known skill level. I think it will give me some clarity on what to focus on to improve.

Sure, maybe this weekend, I just started a new job so I don't know my hours yet. Though I've been slumping a couple weeks, so I'm probably not the best example of a known skill level lol.
