Showdown. I give up

Tried 4 times. 1st 2 lost at first boss . Lost at 2nd boss other 2. I was doing great on the last one then hit a wall against grinke. 10 straight outs perfect line dr some balls to the wall some grounders right at the fielders. Ya I'm done with this [censored] showdown.

lol bro. People will say get good when top tier players are saying hitting is in a terrible state.

Yes I know . Maybe I'm not good enough. Never had a problem any other year but I'll admit I'm not good enough for showdown. So I won't do it

I am absolutely average at this game. I have beat showdown 3 times and probably lost about 7. The last run I took my hands off the controller for the first pitch of every at bat so I wouldn't swing. Doing this I scored 8 runs and only got 3 outs in the final showdown against Verlander. I think there is a momentum mechanic in play that escalates quickly if you get outs on the first pitch of at bats.

It's not if you are good enough or not atm. Granted, if you are bad, dont try. But, it is all what the PC wants. Which I presume is what SDS wants which quite frankly is disgusting. This game can be better. SDS has shown their hand. Revert the dam patch. Then fix pitching to balance.

I'll try that if I ever do it again.its pretty much all there is to do 7ntil k wood drops

You got 10 straight perfect line outs? Somehow I don’t believe you.

Yes, it’s called pitcher confidence.

Read it again pls. 10 st outs. Some perfect liners some balls to the wall some grounders

It seems like against Scherzer I always end up in a 3-2 situation with the bases loaded and 2 outs to go, and without fail, ground into a double play.

Also look for perks that give you boosts when behind in the count, then you can watch the first pitch and get rewarded either way. If it's a ball you're ahead in the count and the pitcher is getting tired, if it's a strike your perk kicks in to help you out.

My advice is Work the count..
When bases are loaded, do your best not swing at anything low, unless youre waiting on it.
It took me wayy tooo long to beat the 1st Inning Showdown.. the division ones seem easier.
