Ma'am, this is a Wendy's.
Then that explains all the BEEF people have with the game!
I know some people are frustrated with the game and others are not. I know we all might not agree. We start fueds that continue on other threads. We watch members go back and forth and then we take our sides and rally around those who agree with our opinion. Sometimes it gets heated but...
I'm thankful for this forum because if it wasnt for you complainers, defenders of the game, bunt dancers and patch analysts....The Show would end when I turn off my ps4. You cant discuss Patch 1.08 with a perfect stranger waiting for your Coffee at your local Starbucks
This forum is like Sportscenter lmao. Everyone coming together at the end of the night to share highlights of their experiences. We may not all agree upon the state of the game but we all agree The Show Nation is pretty dope.
So in conclusion I'm thankful for all of you...even the ones I've blocked lol
Has anyone seen the video Trevor May put up entitled " My outfield is broken " ....its not really just the outfield but other aspects of the game that haven't been fixed...to his throwing partners real life velocity being incorrect...and no urgency on infield throws.
What I don’t understand about showdown is why they label challenges as rookie or veteran but they play so much different and harder than that.
I can go play conquest, MTO, or vs. cpu on all star and bat around my lineup fairly frequently in an inning. However I struggle to even get on base in rookie and veteran showdown challenges???? It makes no sense.
If they wanna keep showdown this challenging fine, but I think it aggrevates most of us when we go in feeling confident that we can handle these only to find it doesn’t play the way it’s advertised.
I really like the idea of the mode and the way its set up, but it frustrates me even more than ranked seasons.
They came out last year and admitted that the moments labeled at veteran and rookie were not actually at the level. Midseason they changed it and moments became bearable. What turned me off was why would a company deceive its consumers?
Once I saw this it changed my view. I dont want to call it lying but if u can deceive us in one aspect...what other aspect are we being decieved in that just hasnt been revealed yet. Remember they didnt come out and say it...we had to complain and gripe until the jig was up
My hittings gone cold I'm wondering why...I turned on the game at all...the fastballs mess up my timing window...and I cant see them at all....even if I could it would not be great...a perfect perfect caught at the wall...it reminds me..my hitting is bad...my hitting is baaaaaaad
A 125 may as well be a 75 if he can't place pitches despite high numerical ranking.
Can SDS explain within the context of the game what I am failing to do consistently to achieve a desired pitching result
I hit corners all day.
You must be the player determined to be at a disadvantage in most of your matchups. Lol jk. I'm calling sarcasm because..
1.) Hitting the corners is difficult
2.) If you hit the corner the chances of the umpire calling it are slim to none...and slim just died.
How can you explain when you square many balls for routine outs but on the other hand your opponent hits a good/okay and it’s a 347949393 foot bomb.
Don’t tell me skills count in this game. Sometime the game wants you to take the L. I’ve taken undeserved Ws and they don’t feel very well to be honest.
Since day one we’ve been asking for a fully skill based game. Give me what I earn, nothing else.
Google video game churn rate...amazing!!
Im randomly thinking about this now, but do you think SDS will release another stage to Matthews, Eck, Pudge, cargo since they did that with Jackie and it would be cool to have the signature of those guys
If it makes money I wouldn't put It past them
Well it seems as though all you do is mock people who have legit issues with his game. You may not be Ramone, but you seem like an SDS employee.
Who are you arguing with? I dont see any responses. Your either arguing with a ghost or someone I blocked....(hint hint) lol
Good luck with these guys
Do you also have a tape measure you use to keep track of your home runs?
No a pitch counter would be better for that but then again that's really not needed because I can look up my stats to keep track of how many homeruns I have hit.
I do have a tape measure but I only use it to measure the distance of my homeruns
I’ve had this happen to me before but I’m dying laughing at the fact that you pulled out the stop watch
Lol.....I had too! I always figured the game can boost stats and manipulate gameplay in order to produce a desired result. Sds...here's your sign.
Struck out Juan Soto on dropped 3rd strike and he makes it to first surprisingly. No way...I check replay. He swings and is given a superhero animation running to first like the flash.
I break out the stop watch...he ran a 3.8 to first. Kenny lofton was known for a 3.9 to first. Major league average at the time I was playing was 4.2....how did he run faster than a player with 99 speed?
Or did the game just want my opponent to not ruin a perfect situation to score?
In recent years, SDS has brought so many legends to The Show for us to use in Diamond Dynasty. It wasn't long ago that our pool of legends was limited to only a few per team. Now? Almost every team has a good number of legends.
The Show 17 brought us Ken Griffey Jr., Roberto Alomar, Wade Boggs, Jorge Posada, and Jason Giambi among others.
The Show 18 gave us Babe Ruth, Frank Thomas, Mike Piazza, Bob Gibson, Vladimir Guerrero, and Roy Oswalt among a lot more. In fact, I think The Show 18 might have been our biggest jump from year-to-year.
... and of course The Show 19 continued the trend and brought out the big guns with Willie Mays, Rickey Henderson, Ivan Rodriguez, Ty Cobb, Lou Gehrig, Cy Young, and Walter Johnson.
With all those legends added, the game has evolved into a baseball fan's dream, especially in Diamond Dynasty where they've found a good balance of time spent and rewarding the player without the feeling that you need to spend money like so many other Ultimate Team card collecting modes. It made a ton of sense for them to target the bats before the arms but I think the next few years should be spent focusing on getting the big name pitching legends that we've been asking for.
It's true that they've added more than a few of baseball history's best hurlers but I still think that the selection of pitching legends is far too small. Obviously they took a huge step the last two years in acquiring rights to some great legends and I'm glad they got the rights to Mark Buehrle, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, Robin Roberts, and Al Leiter this year; while last year we got Kerry Wood, Mark Prior, Christy Mathewson, Walter Johnson, Cy Young, and A.J. Burnett. There's no denying that the selection we have already is impressive but imagine a game with all the legends we have now, plus big names like:
- Pedro Martinez
- Randy Johnson
- Dwight Gooden
- Tim Lincecum
- Roy Halladay
- Barry Zito
- Mike Mussina
- Sandy Koufax
- Roger Clemens
- Curt Schilling
- Steve Carlton
Yeah, a few of those guys are unlikely (Clemens and Schilling specifically) but to match the legendary bats of Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Ty Cobb, Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Ken Griffey Jr., Cal Ripken Jr., and Lou Gehrig, we need the best pitchers the world has ever seen to match. Just adding a few of these legends like Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, and Roger Clemens would go so far and further the notion that MLB The Show offers the best Ultimate Team experience of any sports game.
It's exciting to think about the ridiculous matchups we could have and likely will have in the coming years. I could go on for hours talking about players I'd love to see return to or make their debut in The Show. I'm certain the team at Sony San Diego Studios shares this belief and are working on getting a large number of these guys into the game. Even beyond the household names they could build on those by adding other popular pitching legends like:
- Carlos Zambrano
- Tim Hudson
- Johan Santana
- David Cone
- Andy Pettitte
- Hoyt Wilhelm
- Brandon Webb
- Gaylord Perry (re-acquire his rights)
- Chuck Finley
- Josh Beckett
- David Wells
- Chris Carpenter
- Tim Wakefield
- Frank Viola
- Kevin Brown
- Javier Vazquez
- Dennis Martinez
- Bobby Thigpen
- Armando Benitez
- Jose Mesa
- Freddy Garcia
- Jon Matlack
- Brad Radke
- Dontrelle Willis
- Jim Bunning
- Hideo Nomo
- Jamie Moyer
- Don Drysdale
- Kyle Farnsworth
... and guys that recently retired like:
- C.C. Sabathia
- R.A. Dickey
- John Lackey
- Matt Harvey
- Bronson Arroyo
- C.J. Wilson
- Jonathan Papelbon
- Francisco Rodriguez
- Joe Nathan
- Ryan Dempster
- Dan Haren
- Matt Cain
- Jered Weaver
- Jonathan Papelbon
- Koji Uehara
- Junichi Tazawa
- Francisco Rodriguez
- Jonathan Broxton
- Brian Wilson
- Neftali Feliz
- LaTroy Hawkins
- Octavio Dotel
- John Axford
- Ryan Madson
- Jim Johnson
- Santiago Casilla
- Carter Capps
Sir I completely agree but Sds has a lot on its plate trying to get gameplay correct...its june and things are still a bit crazy...let's not add more pressure
