Why do people play at shippet?

SDS

If you’re someone who enjoys playing at shippet, why do you? I don’t think I’ve ever had a good game (win or lose) at that stadium.

SDS

Because we like to hit dingers

SDS

I dont like playing there either. I think a lot of people like it because the ball flies out of there making it easy to hit homers and some people like the batters eye and the way you see the ball coming in. I'm with you though man, I dont like football scores in a baseball game.

SDS

I'm not a fan of Shippett, if I wanted to play home run derby, I'd play that mode

Last game I played there, the game was 10-6, every run was scored by a home run. Now part of that is the game and not the stadium, but the stadium does amplify that home run or nothing type gameplay. I don't find that type of gameplay fun

SDS

bc it rewards good user input the most out of any stadium. Sure there are slightly more “bad” hrs there, but hitters that frequently achieve better input in than their opponents will win the vast majority of their games there. Can’t say the same for other stadiums. I think other stadiums definitely benefit hitters that aren’t as good, but ig it’s all personal preference and ppl are more likely to play in stadiums that benefit themselves.

Also the batter's eye is fantastic. There is no better batter's eye in the game than the one in Shippett.

I agree it does have the best, take away the elevation aspect and Shippett would be my home stadium.

It does have a good batters eye but it allows the most bs homeruns in any park. I’m pretty sure this is a simulation of baseball, so why aren’t runs earned. You rarely see runs manufacturered. It’s all or nothing which is honestly boring

That's how it goes in any other park as well tbh. And in real MLB as well, more or less.

Yes, it's a game wide thing, but just as it rewards good contact home runs more, it also rewards the bad. The park takes that type of gameplay and turns it up to 11. I play at other parks 95% of the time and see runs scored without the home run much more often.

Date Palm Field Best Field

I don't like it because I think I'm good. Until I leave shippet and go back to my warning track power.

i agree [censored] stadium though we all know why ppl like it there

SDS

That park rewards bad hitting. I'm sorry, but it does. Routine fly balls that are barely in the pci get launched there. Its a joke of a stadium

SDS

Doesn’t it have the lowest frame rate drop too? Or is that a myth ?

SDS

I only use it for 'Beat so and so on All-Star difficulty' missions to eff teams up 🤣
I'm about to smack up the Reds for the Votto program 2nite

I get the hate for Shippet, but Shibe Park is an even worse band box. You need to knock out some easy HR stats for missions offline, pick Shibe and thank me later. That stadium, while a classic, is a joke. Although I admit, I’ve come to take advantage of it when I need x amount of HRs or XBH’s in missions vs CPU. With all the perfect-perfect fails and the CPU OF and 3B playing like Platinum glove winners — I don’t even feel ashamed

Mitch you’re a very good player and I’m not suggesting you can’t hit well away from shippet, but I feel totally the opposite. You’re more likely to get rewarded at shippet if you have bad input, for example you get under the ball for what would be a fly out anywhere else and it carries out for a homer.

Definitely way more BS home runs at shippett. At least at shibe center field is something like 440 feet away, at shippett the high elevation and the 390 foot fence to center is awful.
