slide step abuse

Tired of it. every pitch my opponents are slide stepping. I'm not even taking an extra lead.

Slide steps mean more hanging pitches from my opponents, so bring them on.

So why do you care if they do it EVERY pitch. Its only when it is mixed in sporadically and throws you off that its annoying. Remember they are losing control so you are more likely to get balls or meatballs

Lol.

Next it will be diving abuse
IBB abuse!
Check swing abuse!
Excessively long windup abuse (I'm looking at you Mathewson!)

I'm tired of getting fastballs from Nolan Ryan.

it's not the way the game is supposed to be played. It's cheese.

Let me just add this to the list of things I never thought I’d see people complaining about, right alongside “my opponents are quitting too much”

[censored] right. I'd like a mode which resembles a real mlb game. not cheese em and if it don't work, quit. I guess that's your style of play. smh.

if someone has above 90 speed on 1st I'm slide stepping. most of the time I hang one and give up a hit anyways but hate guys running all over me

also if you dont watch baseball much you wouldn't notice all the slide stepping quick pitching pause pitching....... etc all part of throwing off the timing of a hitter

I’m tired of Ryan’s fastball mixed with his changeup cheese. It’s ridiculous

the worst cheese is opponents not swinging at my pitches out of the zone.

An early contender for post of the year!

I find it annoying but don't mind people doing it. As someone pointed out, it can lead to some nice meatballs down the middle. If I'm ever feeling too rushed, I hit r2 or pause to slow them down a bit.

How dare they make the game go faster at the expense of their own pitcher's control. /s

Plus, in this game unless LS Albert Pujols is on 1st, the runner could potentially steal a bag if you don't slide step. I had Pablo Sandoval with his 38 speed and 10 steal rating steal a bag on me earlier in the year. He even accelerated through the slide because apparently no one at SDS has ever taken a physics class.

Count this among the dumbest complaints on this forum.

I recorded one inning of this non sense. This was the second game in a row this happened. You mean to tell me this is how everyone plays and how the devs meant the game to be played? woooow.

Except I didnt see any slide stepping. Looks like he was stepping into his pitches normally from the stretch.

Kershaw don't pitch that fast from the stretch. that's definitely slide stepping.

82 speed lead runner so he was trying to stop you from stealing?

I hate pitching with Kershaw from the stretch because it is so fast. Barely have time to react on the analog. And he never slid his foot. He was taking steps. Not that it really matters. If the guy is trying to give you a free HR take it.

I hate it when I'm not the home team. Such cheese. When I go to see my Rockies they are playing at Coors Field...where they should be. DD should play out the same way. Why can't SDS just patch this nonsense already.

SDS needs to fix this or I'm cancelling my pre-order.
