And yet you keep playing.

I feel those who quit games, do so mostly when they feel out matched or when someone just had a really big early inning scoring 3-5 runs & now doesn't want to grind out the game trying to gain back the lead fearing they will continue being out scored by that other team. I know because I have quit many RS games for those same exact 2 reasons.
Oddly at times I have mixed emotions when someone quits on me. At times I feel like "Cool, easy win, easy RS rank points" & at times I get really pissed off because if that game was being played for a program mission objective to gain program points & the person quitting now nixes that mission & it has to be done all over, then that ticks me off.
I feel there is not enough penalty or penalization for those who quit other then the loss itself & getting an other "quit/disconnect" card. The player needs to see there is much more to lose & to be punished for by quitting games.
I feel I may have a solution to this that will prevent those from quitting as easy & as often as they do. Some out there will LOVE this idea & some will HATE this idea. But here it goes ..........
Lets say that RS game would give +50 to the winner & -50 to the loser. If the Loser played out the entire game to it's end, then the loser only gets -25. He only loses half the ranking points as a bonus for playing the entire game. But if he quits, he now gets a -150 which is 3x in negative then what the winner got. So quitting is now a ranking point value of like losing 3 games immediately back to back. Apart from that, quitting causes a 3 hour ban, meaning the system detects your last "quit" & blocks you from being matched in an RS Game for 3 hours.
ONLY THING THAT BYPASSES THIS "PENALTY" AN AGREED "FRIENDLY QUIT"
I feel this will prevent many from quitting so easily & as often as they do. Tell me what you guys think.
You confuse me. In one post you complain that you're getting matched up with players that are Elite, thus not giving you a chance to compete; thus giving you one of two options: Take a beating or quit.
Then in another post, you want to 'punish' people for quitting.
But if you live so far in the 'sticks', that you can hear banjos playing constantly, and your WiFi is so bad that the ball skips across the screen; you shouldnt be able to play thia game online.
Wow most entitled post I EVER read
Or an 'entitlement' post. But if it's takes you longer than 25 secs to throw a pitch; or the total an bat lasts longer rhan a few minutes; don't refuse the Friendly Quit and tgen apologize that you know your WiFi can only connect at under 200kbps.
Either dont play online or spend the extra cash and buy a Wi-Fi booster. No reason it should take 20 minutes to get through 2 innings of play.
First, I don’t think many want All Star removed completely from the game, they just want that difficulty removed from their options once you’ve made it to higher difficulties.
Second, shifts are absolutely used in MLB, however, they’re aren’t automatically enabled. The manager makes a decision on which shift they want implemented for whatever batter is up. I have no problems with shifts in gameplay, I do however have an issue with the default being automatic based on some arbitrary programming that the developers defined. Ranked season is a competitive mode, and as such, should require the player to use their own brain to decide how to compete against different players, not be given a crutch to level competition. In your scenario, it would be like the MLB telling the umpires to automatically place the fielders into a shift based on the MLBs stats and metrics.
Easiest way to regulate difficulty. If you're rated in the 400s, then you only play people in those guidelines. 400s play 400s. 500s play 500s, 600s play 600s, etc

Calling it now. Rivera will be the reward for collecting all the LS players.
Not so sure it'd be Rivera. They've never had a pitcher as the 'Collect All' reward, much less a reliever.
Ortiz would be the more likely 'Collect All' of the Legends displayed today. Though were money on the line, I'd go someone more well-rounded like Mantle, Clemente, or Aaron.
If I'm not mistaken, Ortiz was already in the game. Rivera a a new player, a legend, and probably the most sought after player not name Bonds or Jeter.
They're not just going to make him easy to obtain
Is the XP Reward Path returning?
If it is they better not put the best pitcher in the game in there again
I've been flipping certain cards today; while finishing up some 11th Inning missions and just noticed something weird.
Now ALL day I've been placing Buy Orders are a few cards (10) to be exact and have been getting them close to QS value.
After all 50 Buy Orders are filled, I sell them for a few stubs over what I paid. Not much, but just to have something voing on in the background while I'm playing.
Now my most recent But Orders, after I placed them, I went back in to check on them, and noticed that EVERY SINGLE ONE has been outbid by the same amount of stubs.
Talk about conspiracy theories. Lol
Just hit 600 Stars and have my choice of Griffey, Robinson, or Piazza. Naturally, the one that wirth the most would be the norm; but I have yet to hit 300 in the 6th inning, so I can still pick one when I hit that.
I'm keaning towards Griffey now and selling him while the price is inflated and then grab him once I hit 300 in his program.
Any reason that I shouldnt sell him and pick Robinson or Piazza when I hit 30p in the 6th Inn?
Outfield is Williams, Mays, and Ichiro now. So if I keep Griffey now, Ichiro will go to the bench.
I have Alomar or Hornsby at 2nd and Pudge at Catcher, so Robinson and Piazza would be bench bats.
Only reason to take Griffey now, and possibly Piazza in the 6th, is I could sub in Ichiro to run for Pudge/Piazza and replace with the other; but i also have my CAP at catcher.
I think I'm leaning towards Griffey and selling him.
