Anyone else losing multiple games in conquest simming territories when the odds are like 15-2?

SDS

I've lost quite a lot of 3-1, 5-2 etc. games. Only on the USA map though. The cpu is playing more aggressive as well, so I think they wanted to make it a little bit tougher. Well, with the amount of fans we're getting after each turn it's not a big deal

Extra games help for the XP and stars towards the 1st inning program so I don't really mind although it is annoying losing a game on a homerun outside the strike zone.

I think he was talking about simmed games. Anyway, extra games are not that bad. I use conquest to do daily missions and team affinity missions anyway. That's especially useful for pitcher innings

Yah I expected as much. I only mentioned that because you said the CPU is playing more aggressive (which I agree with you). I do the same thing for the affinity missions and daily grinds the big map is very helpful in that regard.

Im about to finish the usa for the 2nd time and they definitely get waaaay more aggressive. Ive lost many sims.

O wait, my mistake. I meant the CPU was playing conquest more aggressively. I seems to attack your territories a little bit more often, even with 2-1 odds (last year it wouldn't attack until the odds were at least 3-1.). But yeah, gameplay as well. More bunts and early-count balls in play. I like it!

O I get it, my bad

The sim is terrible. Losing 35-6. Joke. They plowed through a 12 with 14 and lost none. Kept going

Yeah, the second run on USA map is exactly what I’m talking about. CPU got hyper aggressive.

SDS

It's not worth it IMHO right now. I took territory only to find my entire base was conquered. Not feeling it until they tweak.

SDS

I believe it gets harder with each completion. they had this last year too.

The CPU is definitely tougher this year. But I like that. It isn't an automatic win on All-Star any longer (at least for me so far). Last year I very seldom lost against the CPU below HoF difficulty.

Conquest has always had times when the odds go very badly against you in simmed games.

And let's face facts, I don't believe for an instant that these games are actually fairly simmed. You could have an end game team of all 99 diamonds last year and have a bad sim outcome against the worst teams in the league.

I don't think the simming has anything to do with your current squad. It seems to be just as random as a dice roll, meaning every turn is decided by some sort of random event with the defending team having slightly higher odds to win that turn. The exact explanation must be on the internet somewhere
