Showdown is starting to seem like a sham

Ball is in the pci and I still get nothing but good/okay with negative velo. Had a swing that was directly middle pci for Jeff McNeil. 97 mph fastball, Good/Good 95 exit velo lineout to RF.

What happend? I completed 6 Showdowns between NLW and ALW, since then I haven't been able to even get through the 2nd boss unless I skip to the end, but its lineout city like 19 when it played its worst.

You just have to keep grinding

My issue isn't the grind. It's not being rewarded for good input on a consistent basis.

I completely agree. I just had a 93 exit velo on a pitch that was 98 MPH and with Matt Olson that was good squared

Trust me I understand, I had 4 perfect perfects last night in a mini boss and I only got one hit - one was a double play hit to first that the first baseman couldn’t of caught because it literally went through my player at first - thanks

Showdown is rigged. Perfect perfect pop up to the catcher to end a showdown is all the proof i need.

Not everyone video caps everything they do but I trust my source more than these clown developers.

No perfect/perfect swing was a pop up to the catcher, no video proof shows that didn't happen, it literally takes less than 5 seconds to hit share and then square to save video

and if it did happen you best believe anyone would have 100% hit share and then save video.

I think they are saying that what should have been a Perfect/Perfect, ended up being a good/Popup owing to the feedback not accurately representing the PCI placement.

Given that we have seen at least one example (with visual proof) of the feedback changing after the ball has landed foul, it is not unreasonable to believe that the feedback may not always be 100% accurate in representing how good or bad your PCI placement was.

As for the reasons why the feedback may be inaccurate that is left for us to debate.

You should know that analysis and pragmatism are frowned upon in these parts

I feel like I have to force myself to be more patient. Most of the time things WILL go your way if you take more than you swing. I just had a perfect run through the AL Central because I stayed patient and refused to swing at pitches low and away. Also, because Silver Adalberto Mondesi is a glitch, but that's neither here nor there. Moral of the story, slow your game down. Even if you're down 4 with 1 out, take it slow.

HAVE to take pitches. It's the hardest thing ever for me to do though. Even have a sticky note next to my monitor that says in bold, "BE PATIENT, DUMBASS" And I'm still in swing mode way too much.

My sticky says "Be Patient you wonderful, thoughtful, kind, considerate, chocolate mountain of a man!"

Positive reinforcement brah 🤘

This, for example, I just finished the NL West showdown a moment ago. Down by 6 with 12 outs left, starting to sweat. Buehler proceeds to walk the next three batters, then a grand slam, couple batters later was able to finish it up
