The animations make no sense. Fielders still run past grounders. My outfielders fail to lock onto balls routinely. Some outright just drop them if you move even a hair while within the zone of catch. I had a moment where I was pitching with a runner on third . . The guy had been bunt cheesing all game. He couldn't hit anything so he just laid down bunt after bunt. I bring in D for the bunt. He bunts right back to pitcher. I proceed to throw home. And the pitcher enters the "tap ball 3 times in glove" animation before lobbing the ball home. Runner of course is safe. Can't do anything but laugh. Game can really Be a mess at times
There is no end game it's really just love playing the game of baseball in any form. The game is glitchy can be frustrating with some of the bugs yeah, but when it comes down to it it's one of the best sports games you're going to find. You can point out some of the flaws to SDS and maybe they'll fix it in a patch, but just to be real they've actually put out a really good product. There's a good chance you'll never be number one in in the world, so don't Focus so much on winning every game. Just focus on having fun.
I would really like for Sony to consider a quick option to tell your opponent after a game "good game". Maybe even quick options in game like saying nice pitch after a K or nice hit. I'm sure not many are clamoring for this, but sometimes I like letting my comp know I appreciate the game and they did a good job, even ehen I lose. Which is often
Lol I did the Zimmerman moments and trea Turner was always on base. The computer must have attempted at least 50 pickoffs over course of completing. That was super annoying
I have never ever broken a controller in anger. Never thrown it, never even started the motion really. Then I played today preceded the aim four sinkers in the dirt, all good input, all aimed up correctly. Every single one ends up hanging out over the middle of the plate. 2 get crushed for bombs. I don't get it. I can't throw a ball in the dirt with a 92 ranked picture with perfect input. I think I'm going to step away from this game for a while. RIP controller
Thought it was just me. I just avoid it now and play events or showdowns. More frustrating than fun
I've robbed about 5 home runs. Actually not that hard although it's kinda weird cause occasionally you have to slow walk to the spot
I played a guy last night that i struck out 25 times but got 4 hits off bunts. Perfectly placed L side rollers against the shift, Granderson and Gallo. Thought that was cute
When i first started out with showdown I constantly lost. As i got better, showdown got easier. Now I never lose them. And I don't even think I'm that good at the game, just spent a lot of time playing.
Also, content has been awesome. My buggest problem is picking a lineup because I have too many good cards. And i haven't spent a dime on anything other than the game itself. Yes fielding can be wonky sometimes, and occasionally you'll see someone crush a down and away FB 450ft oppo somehow. All in all, I'm having a good time playing. Definitely needs some tuning and cleaning up, but SDS has really put out a very good game.
You don't have to spend a dollar if you don't want. I chose not to, and happy I did. Just play the game, grind for stubs and cards, and dont complain because you bought a pack that didn't give you 4 diamonds
Josh Gibson- 125 power
I've had plenty of perfect-perfect flyouts. I actually think roughly 35% of my perfect-perfect go for outs in form of liner or grounder
So as someone who has played over 100 games of h2h and diamond dynasty, I can honestly say DD has the better overall players. DD is simply more fun as you get to build your team, and there is so much content that keeps you grinding for new cards and through new events. The sheer amount of content keeps people invested in it rather than simply popping in and out of h2h matches. Just the numbers means the potential for having a larger pool of good players would be increased.
I will say, hitting on HOF with normal teams is WAY harder than in DD. You actually have to hit on HOF or Legend in DD to prevent a shippett derby. I do remember YFK losing to Lucas giolito when he was forced to use a normal team rather than his DD team. So it isn't as simply DD better th.an H2H. Both would have to adjust. DD player would have have to adjust to incredibly smaller PCI, H2H player would have to adjust to constant 90-99 pitching from starter to closer
I had one going into the 8th inning on a guy. Had struck him out 16 times to this point . He then lays down a bunt with garret Anderson, perfectly down the line on a sinker in the dirt. Against the shift. His only hit as i struck out the next 4 batters. Still, was super pissed, cause I wanted the no-no and was up 6-0. Crazier that dude stayed in game that long
First one I agree is a normal play. Second one is glitch. This isn't about crying over not fielding every ball or making every throw. Fielders running past slow rolling grounders because the animation fails to trigger is a problem. Failing to lock on for a routine fly ball is a problem. Innapropriate situational animations (like when you cue up a throw on relay and fielder lazily takes relay and performs slowest animation possible, resulting in runner be safe on advance) are a problem. These take the realism out if the game, and just make you focus on its flaws. It's a good game, but the fielding and pitching have glaring issues
I think hitting is ok, but way to many foul tips. Shouldn't be so many long battles when guys are fouling off pitches in the dirt and those 2 feet above zone. Pitching is worse. If it ain't perfect feedback, it's a meatball dead center
So I have quit before during a game, but I always allow either an at bat or inning to finish to completion because i understand those accomplishments are important. I've had a ton if people quit in the middle of my own homerun. I like people that quit early, because why waste time on a game that's over early
Clarke Schmidt. But really, a major league caliber pitcher should be able to throw a ball in the dirt with relative ease. It should never hang in the zone unless you seriously miss the timing, which was not the issue
