Don't know whether to compliment you on your persistence in continuing to play a game you are obliviously not enjoying or to recommend counciling, as it sometimes sounds like you are in an abusive relationship you can't escape.
If directional hitting is easier to use and gives players an advantage then use it yourself.
If not then stop blaming it for losses or someone getting lucky.
They didn't trade wins at all did they? Koogs quit to give Goat a win. Now, I have not read the whole thread but is there any evidence that Goat knew about the quit before it happened? Did he actually give Koogs a win in return (a "trade" is reciprocal).
I understand why the sony partners are under scrutiny and should be held to the same standard as everyone else but, if we are being honest ourselves, this situation (a single game quit) would never even make SDS's radar normally if it was just some random player. People quit out of games all of the time.
The last two people saying we should lighten up because they got 600 or more points in the last program have 91 and 125 hours played already or roughly 4 to 5 hours every single day. 30 plus hours a week.
You guys are the outliers. The vast majority of players don't have those type of hours to sink into the game to get those type of points. Those of us who ended up with 350-400 points last inning are very likely to come up short unless we put in more hours and conform to how SDS thinks we should play the game to earn points.
I think it is less though. I will check later when I continue the new conquest. It seems like I was only getting a star every other 3 inning game so they apparently changed the number of innings needed to earn a star.
Are they banking on us buying the extra two bosses from the first inning for and locking them in for the 70 point jump start?
Gee you have amost 300 hours played in 3 weeks and 3 days since release. That works out to 11 hours a day every day since release.
That should not be a benchmark that the average player should be compared against
I have said it in the other threads. It is probably the beginning of the end for me in DD this year as an offline player. Adjusting the totals because some diehards overachieved is short sighted. I put in about 20 hours a week for the first three weeks. If that won't get me close to 300 stars this time then I am probably done.
If that is the case then they have screwed many of us because a handful of players grind the hell out of the game.
Last program I completed every conquest map (4 or 5), did March to October with the Cardinals, completed maybe 4 or 5 daily missions and completed about half a dozen of the inning missions. I ended up with about 350 stars.
I was fairly happy with that outcome. If I do a similar amount of playing this month and don't come close to 300 then I am probably done trying. Of course I probably won't get there anyway because I don't have a huge desire to do MTO with another team and there is no compelling reason to run the main conquest map again.
If they have nerfed the program, stars for playing then there is a good chance that I will never make it to the 300 points needed and there is also I good chance I walk away from the game at that point.
Conquest gives me a goal for playing games offline. I have completed all the maps so far except for the new one. I will do the new conquest map and try some of the moment missions but if it gets to the point where I feel like my only two options for earning points offline are completing ridiculously hard moments or grinding meaningless games in VS CPU mode then I am probably done.
Packs have never ever been a smart investment. Anyone could have told you that.
Not really earth shattering news that you are not enjoying it. You have been pretty much saying that here since it was first released.
And those were just in the last 3 days. Personally, if I had as many complaints about the game, and thought that the dev team was as dishonest as you believe they are then I would have moved on by now.
The caveat being that you have to Win the series to get those rewards. Just completing the mode without winning gets you nothing.
Fine as long as you also remember to never recommend or condemn a player to me if you have not played with that player offline, in Conquest on veteran.
Let's all keep notebooks on each other so we know when we can and cannot review a player.
I used the Cardinals and had maxxed out the "HOT" icon. I think I only went into two games in postseason trailing. The reset were tie games or I was ahead.
Offline he is a serviceable RF.
I realize that online is more susceptible to errors (I am not sure why that should be) but apparently there is a pretty big difference between online and offline when it comes to errors.
I am sure that nobody would ever say that you had no life because they saw that you have spent 40 hours a week playing this game.
When our primary hobby is playing video games then we probably should be a little less judgemental about how others choose to spend their leisure time.
We may have different definititions of hardcore. I am well aware that there are many who have blown well past level 75. I have played for over 60 hours since release which is about 20 hours a week and I am somewhere in the mid 60s level wise. I feel like my 20 hours a week may even be more than your average player.
What SDS can't do is adjust rewards based on those who play 40 hours or more a week, or those who spend lots of money money to finish collections. Doing so will only alienate everyone who does not have that amount of time or money.
There are a lot of reasons why I won't buy stubs in this game. This particular excuse or reason does not even make my radar.
Only the hardcore have hit 75 bronze. My guess is your average player has not. I know that I am not there yet. When you get there you can get an end game pitcher that may or may not be chosen when you actually play. I have live series kershaw and I have not had him be selected in a week or more. I added the Bob Gibson card from the Cardinals Affinity and then played like 6 games in the newest conquest map and he was not selected either.
I don't see it as a big deal.
There is a twitch stream today right? I am sure they will adress these questions.
The earth is flat! It does not matter what anyone says.
It's nice to see that the community can discuss and deal with this hiccup in a mature manner.
He is in my starting lineup but I play offline and don't have the issues with errors that seem to happen online.
Hitting wise, he does not miss the ball when he swings and he seems to find holes in the infield and outfield that other players cant.
Did he break the rules? Yes.
Should he be held to a higher standard as a Partner? Yes
Should there be some form of consequence? Probably.
But in the grand scheme of things a one game quit is not that big of a deal, especially if they did not conspire to be matched up against each other. I question all of the outrage more than the offense itself. It seems diproportionate, but I have never understood the jealousy some gamers have towards full time streamers and youtubers,.
