I swore I wouldn't buy it and even with this lockdown stuff I still have no interest. I been playing a few games here and there of 19... same bullshit as usual. I find I win a lot of games and hit/pitch very well... but whenever I get matched up with someone with a VERY bad record or novice in anyway, that's when all the [censored] ensues.
MY LAST GAME
This guy has about 600 losses. Took his starter out in the 2nd inning, proceeded to put out pitchers with low or NO energy. He walked me too many times and EVERYTHING I hit was a line drive right at someone. Even though this dude was throwing right down the heart of the plate since I was laying off all of his breaking stuff that he couldn't get in the strike zone. I struck him out 16 times. He's flailing at EVERYTHING. He beat me 1-0. And it was this game that I remember why I hate this company so much and reminded why I didn't buy 20. They do bullshit when it comes to bad matchups. I can take a loss by a good competitor. Or someone whose far better than me. But there's way too many games like THIS one that causes just way too much frustration. I'm sorry but why are you rewarding someone who is throwing the ball to hang over the plate...I had about 20 line outs. For perspective, my starting line up batting averages are mostly well above .300. I have a good eye, patient, wait for my pitch. And I'm even better pitcher. This guy proved on multiple occasions to not be nearly the match and yet continuously awarded and taken out of jams. Disgusting. I don't care if he's new player.... if he gets matched with a World Series player, why should I be handicapped to his skill set?
I will not be buying 2020 based on all of this "DDA" type [censored] that most definitely ensues. Is it still a thing in this years version of the game? Glancing at some of the boards it looks like there are definitely other issues. It's really a shame that there is not another competitive baseball game out. Because [censored] THE SHOW. Been playing for a decade and the direction they've taken is just shameful. Not that they give a [censored].
