This is really dumb. The whole point of an auction is to get them item. Period. Some people want to try and get the item for as cheap as possible and some people just want to get the item, so they try and push people out of the bidding by going up in higher intervals. Not everyone wants to spend hours a day canceling and redoing buy order for 1 stub at a time. Also, going up in higher intervals may make someone want to sell faster. If they see a buy order for 2000 more than the next order, they might sell now and cash in on the higher stub price before someone else does. So expecting everyone to simply go up 1 stub at a time is stupid.

I've played 2 conquest games in the past couple hours. The first was a stronghold game against the Tigers on ROOKIE that went TEN innings with FIFTEEN well struck balls that were outs. The second was a steal fans game against the padres on HoF in which they didn't have a hit until the bottom of the third and here's how it went. SS Kenley jansen pitching. Strikes out the first guy. Second batter walks on 4 BORDERLINE pitches. Next batter hits the ball straight back to the pitcher, I hit the green on the throwing meter to throw to second base for an easy double play to win the game. Jansen stands there for 3 secs, and throws the ball to second after the batter is already standing on second, has had a drink of water, tied both his shoes, and taken a quick nap. Next batter doubles into the gap scoring 2 runs and winning the game.
I mean come on. I REAAAALLLYY don't want to say the game is scripted but when stuff like this happens, it's hard to deny it.
Every time I play a game like this, the chances of my buying 20 go down. I'm just not going to pay money for this type of experience year after year.
Sorry, like I said, I just needed to vent.
Get better at the game. You played on Rookie...even if you had 15 balls squared up for outs...if you are good one would leave the park. Game isn't scripted.
Get better at what exactly? Squaring up the ball with good/good timing? Should I try hitting HIGHER than 110 exit velos? Please be specific. Should I try hitting balls THROUGH the defenders gloves? Is there a magic result higher than good/squared up that I'm missing?
I did hit 2 homers in the top of the 10th inning. So I am good enough to hit home runs against rookie apparently... Oh and those 2 homers had the same contact input and exit velos as multiple balls that were outs. So what exactly should I be better at? Like I said, please be specific.
CPU doesn't give you anything good to hit.....got walked, plunked, FB on the inner corner or sliders off the plate inside.........smash a HR, then it's warning track time.....lol
The warning track stuff is the WORST. Announcer: "OH BOY! DID HE GET ALL OF THAT ONE!! GOOOOONE!!!! THAT'S A NO DOUBTER!!! KISS IT GOODB... and that's the third out of the inning..." Like WTF?
This was the hardest one for me. I swear it took me at least 200 tries. No amount of well struck balls mattered. Everything was an out. No amount of pitches taken mattered. Everything was a borderline strike. Every time I would score the computer would lead off with a triple and a single in their next ABs. I get extreme is supposed to be hard but this one was just stupid.

I largely stopped playing because this game isn't fun. With the end of the program approaching, I've been trying to make a push to collect stars before the end of the program. In the last 24 hours, the following plays happened:
A homerun I hit that didn't even go over the wall: https://youtu.be/VJEe-SXmw74
Granderson camped under the flyball for the final out, lets it fall in letting the tying run cross the plate: https://youtu.be/PgGfy0Gdf4k
Runner takes a big turn at second, should be thrown out. SS and 2B are playing tummy sticks and nobody is covering the base for the throw behind the runner: https://youtu.be/ki4ozU8uKNU
Ozzie Albies at second commits to trampling the ball into the ground. Can't touch it, cause it might have COVID: https://youtu.be/nqbnwRH9uSc
Adelberto Mondesi (POTM) is gunned down on a very deep flyball. Doesn't touch the plate because... COVID? https://youtu.be/yTmOjkjsP3E
This doesn't include the screen shot of TYLER F'ING O'NEIL hitting a bomb over the bullpen on a CONTACT SWING with the ball NOT IN THE PCI. Same with POTM Didi, but at least he has pop. But this isn't even uncommon.
This all happened in 24 hours. I came to the conclusion... is the game is this [censored] up, why am I bothering to grind out program stars? This is beyond bad...
I submit for your approval.....
The dreaded perfect perfect 1-6-5-4-3 quadruple play in showdown.
Wow. I just... Who... What? What the heck happened?!
What’s the point in taking your time? Just makes the game go longer.
It's a baseball game. What's your rush?
It's a baseball video* game. I don't enjoy waiting 10 seconds between pitches. I don't want commercials or the 7th inning stretch either.
19 being frustrating is what made me not buy 20. I keep coming back to the forums to see if things have changed. Apparently they’re worse.
hows 19 at this point. Might go back. How long to get a match in ranked
I haven’t played in a few weeks but you can still get games. I don’t think there has been a time where I didn’t get one. Wait times are a little longer though.
I always said that pitch speed should be constant through difficulty levels. The only thing that should change is the pci on the hitters end. It’s crazytown to have one 95 MPH fastball be faster than another 95 MPH fastball.
They should make prospect cards like your CAP. Where you have to complete mission or stat objectives to improve them to hit their “potential.” So for instance Nico Hoerner would start as a bribe player, but the more you play with him the better he becomes.
