Have injuries always been a thing in Conquest, or is this new? Last night, I put in a reliever (needed 1 more inning for daily mission) and he promptly got hit in the head with the ball & removed from the game. I have played probably 200 Conquest games this year & this is the first time I've seen that happen.
On a side note, knowing that I still needed to finish that 1 inning, I brought in another reliever from the same team to get the final 2 outs, and it didn't count. So, fractional innings don't count toward the requirement, even if the entire inning is completed by players from the same team.
Yes, I've only had it happen to me once. Apparently it's the only injury you can sustain (hit in the head by line-drive).
Fractional innings worked for me before when going to the bullpen.
Maybe a bug due to the injury?
