I’ve seen the cpu outfielders do that animation in conquest games. It’s a catchable ball, but they suddenly pull up and let the ball drop.
I think it’s just another example of the game trying to be too clever.
anyone that doesn't believe in DDA and/or comeback logic should watch the vid of McGunski losing a BR game while up 9-1 going into the 3rd. He was 11-0 as well. If a top 10 player can't overcome it there is absolutely no hope for the other 99% of us when it kicks in.
The thing about attributes needing to matter is that, currently, we are playing with lots of cards with completely made up attributes.
With the exception of LS cards (and their accuracy is debatable) most of us are using juiced up Fotf, FS or flashback/SS type cards.
Jazz Chisolm or Nick Lodolo or whatever might just as well be made up players.
Essentially, the arbitrary attributes of made up players matters more than the user input...
Just rename your DD team the Sod Poodles and fix up your uniforms. .
In the space of two conquest games I’ve just watched an outfielder camped under a fly ball have it bounce off his head for a double without him even putting his glove up, a home run bounce off the top of the outfield wall back into play for a double, a line out to first for a double play without a tag, and Charlie Blackmon making catches for the cpu with his arm bent backwards as he runs away from the ball.
I know there are so many more aspects to the game than just conquest, but it is no wonder so many people complain about it.
The offer was designed to cause dissension in the Union and an outside shot that the public would be go after the players. Bottom line it wasn't even a good faith offer and now the players are just supposed to shut up and take it? The damage done to the union accepting this offer would be far more long term than not having baseball this year.
Don’t they have to negotiate a new contract next year?
Players Union agreeing to anything now that they don’t want in their new agreement would be complete folly.
Maybe some of you don’t understand how unions work.
The idea that stealing second then third then squeezing is NOT cheese is pretty flawed. Sure, there are counters, but the tagging animations are too slow and sometimes don’t work at all. Your catcher can have the ball standing at home plate and the runner can still be called safe, and to throw out one of these players requires a perfect storm of outcomes to happen.
It is cheese because it is exploiting flaws in the game. If you don’t think that is cheese, guess what, you’re probably a cheeser.
Generally, I have found that the players that cheese the bunting and stealing tend to be weaker hitters and pitchers.
The whole approach is based on provoking a reaction out of you.
There are a few I’ve played, however, who seem to be actually able to hit, and I reckon these are probably just hyper aggressive teenagers.
They need to rebalance pitchers stamina for:
- Starting pitchers coming in out of the bullpen. They need to lose stamina faster and take more time to recover, to make it more of a decision with a trade off when you decide to bring a SP in.
- RP/CP to be able to throw more pitches before they get tired. RP/CP are in the yellow way too soon, making it less appealing to bring them in when you could just bring in that SP.
In OOTP, starters that come out of the pen can not pitch on consecutive days. It’s something...
