My last RS game just highlighted every single thing that makes this year's gameplay flat out terrible online.
Flyball to Trout with the indicator to load up for a throw to second base, Trout proceeds to get under the ball and for whatever reason, thinks there is a magical groundball coming his way. He proceeds to reach down to the ground while watching the ball sail right past him, gives my opponent a run.
Gallo then decides he wants to join in on the BS in RF....he decides to hug the wall and not throw to the cutoff man even though I pre loaded the throw. Instead, he runs around and gives my opponent an extra base that leads to another game-gifted run.
Meanwhile, I outhit my opponent and also get multiple perfect/perfect outs, and good/okay balls when the ball is fully enveloped by the PCI. Meanwhile, he hits seeing eye "okay" singles through the hole followed up by the worst fielding I have ever seen from any iteration of this game and here I am sitting with a 4-3 loss that I literally feel like I could not have changed.
The gameplay online is downright pathetic right now and the silence on SDS' part while continually churning out content is now, at this point, a slap in the face to the community.
At this point, I have to motivate myself to play this awful game and I think it's best to take a break...can't believe I'm saying this in April but I cannot continue to motivate myself to play this game and then be continually let down by how bad it plays online.
I know some of you don't give 2 shits about my opinion, but I gotta vent somewhere and I just hope SDS can somehow improve the game...
