Pay to win is annoying

SDS

I'm getting so tired of going against these guys in the 500s with a 19-17 record that have every card in the game, including Mantle. They get bailed out simply by having cards with attributes that are far superior to that of a NMS team.
I'm tired of losing by 1 or 2 runs to guys that I'm clearly more skilled than, but they have $300 to spend on a [censored] video game. I'm not a WS player, by any means, but I made CS twice last year after starting in October, so I know I'm not total trash.
Anybody else have an opinion on how much easier this game becomes when you can just outspend everyone else?

I did. You’re complaining about people spending money, and saying that’s the only reason they are beating you.

Lots of people could buy the best cards in the game and still not make it very far. The free cards are just as good as purchasable cards in most cases.

So no, this game is not pay to win.

The way I see it, endgame players are insurance for the way you (the person holding the controller) plays. They don't make you amazing, but they do increase your margin of error.

In a couple months, everyone will have endgame cards anyways. If people want to drop $$$ to shine now, whatever, go for it. Get your kicks in while you can.

Ummm a lot of those 99 cards say different because u only get them by turning in team sets at 30 teams and most cost you in the 100k range or more to complete yeah I say buying cards has an advantage but yes I understand we get the stars cards the exp cards and the FOTF cards at cheap prices if we are skilled enough to beat the challenges but the man is right 7-24 but has m
Mantle Biggio and Sheffield already 2 weeks in u spent freaking money and u can't tell me they didn't otherwise.

When I lose by 1 or 2 runs in a game and it's because my good/good with an 87 overall is a shallow flyout and their late/okay with Mantle is a 3 run homer, yes, I'd absolutely say their cards are compensating for a lack of skill.

I just beat a guy with every top diamond in the game last night.. 6-2, so my guess is it doesn't become any easier because good cards cant make you hit a fastball, curveball or pitch very well.

If you’re truly better than them, you’d beat them anyways.

Obviously a card with better attributes is going to play better than a card with lesser attributes, that’s just how the game works. But you don’t need the best cards to win, and having the best cards doesn’t guarantee you’ll win.

A person still has to be good enough to use those cards properly. Also, Good/Good really doesn’t mean much this year, regardless of the card.

all he is saying is that a bad player gets more room for error with great cards than maybe someone with decent cards and is actually the better player because those cards help make up for maybe said person's lack of skill..

This is exactly what I'm saying. When your margin for error is 10% larger (89 OVR vs 99 OVR) than your opponent, it makes for a not very fun experience.

but they don't, if you cant time a fastball or drop the PCI on every pitch, that mantle card isn't going to do much good for you, If you can't time the meter to get a good release on a pitch or even know the basics of pitching, changing speeds, working north-south, east-west...that Kluber card isn't going to help you very much.

So you're saying a card with better contact, better power, and a larger PCI (again, more room for error) does not make it easier to make contact or hit a homerun? That's asinine.

What's the point of having cards with higher attributes if it doesn't mean anything? I guess the best players in the world could easily make WS with an all common team, right?
