New Showdowns

SDS

I must be terrible at this. All the way to the second boss and haven't won a blue mission yet.

SDS

I made it to the final boss but man did I struggle (and fail) against Brusdar Graterol. Constantly late on his 99 mph sinkers and making weak contact on everything else.

Lollll showdown is all on veteran now

There’s still gonna be complaining and next go-round, they’ll be on rookie lol

SDS

Community complained and now we have a mode that give zero competitivity. That's crazy how people are lazy in video games. If you want no challenge, play conquest in rookie mode.

Either they nerfed showdowns cuz people complained they couldn't beat them.. orr they nerfed them cuz we complained about Future Stars as TA2 and wanted us to actually get them done... hmmmmm

One thing i noted right away, most of the hitting ones you start with a guy on base. I will agree they are generally easier and faster. I'm working through NL right now. One of the 2nd tier ones for example was to score 3 runs in 3 innings...but they start you with bases loaded in the 1st. I hit a single and then a HR and was done...easy peasy. But even without the HR I could have manufactured at least 2. The toughest was the 1st one so far, scoring I think 2 runs off Sixto Sanchez. There was a moment against the Brewers where you needed 3 hits AND 3 strikeouts, so one side of the ball wasn't a complete waste of time.

Also worth noting, you get 2 diamonds right off the bat instead of 1...which is generally nice. I went Yelich and Rollins

Not for me, only was given the diamond Yelich

Go play BR if you want competitive gameplay or RS.

This is against the CPU

SDS

Started the final boss down 15-2, got it to 15-11 with 10 outs left, had the KC pitcher up to 140 pitches when all of the sudden he starts dotting everything. Lost 15-14 with 2 men on.

God this is God [censored] frustrating.

Think I'll just grind out innings from now on.

Or, they nerfed them because the data showed the success rate was awful.

Ok, so here's the thing, if you read earlier in the thread you would see that I did, I lost them all.

No, can't be that.

That actually makes final boss harder. On the old ones the CPU was all over the place and I would draw walks. On you hardly get walked. I have horrid PCI placement, so I can only hit pitches down the middle. So I bet I will still struggle with this

People who play against the CPU are not that good and they deserve something that rewards them for their skill level

I think the new showdowns are perfectly balanced and shouldn’t be altered any further
