To me that is just frustrating and makes every failed try just as wasted time.

 

It also doesn't help that they nerfed power this year compared to 18. I can get plenty of hits at all levels but have trouble every time a moment requires a home run. It also doesn't help that Rookie and Veteran CPU are throwing less meatballs than your average player in an event. This is aside from multi game moments that involve getting RBIs when it is completely random if runners will be in scoring position (they don't purposly program it so they are there every time) or that Musial "get a run" moment that felt 90% out of my hands on if I would succeed.

 

If you are going to give me something that is "supposed to be challenging," I want Conquest Extreme-level rewards.

2 criticisms:

1) I don't know anybody who actually enjoys Moments

2) The XP grind sounds good now but what happens in a couple of months when everybody is at 100 diamond? That's why I really don't care about the XP "grind," I'm going to get to those levels eventually.

 

Also, can people stop comparing the Moments to grinds for 99 players? Compare them to what they are more like, the grinds for the program player cards. I would rather grind for Don Sutton than these moments for Wilie Mays.

What's the problem? Do you think the Sony Partners are quitting on your team?

 

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

The difference between a 93 OVR sig and a 93 OVR player is... ? Why is this going to mean more lineup diversity?

I love how people are comparing a moment for 100 stubs to a grind for a 99 OVR player that was the best at his position.

They already decided day 1 to give a ton of XP for collections. The genie is out of the bottle.

The hardcare have hit well beyond 75 bronze. The hardcore are well on their way to diamond. I'm at 75 bronze and I don't even play the game every day.

Seems odd to do a 72 hour event if there wasn't going to be abother event right after.

The 2nd inning starts Friday.

AFAIK, there is nothing besides events this year that expires. The only thing will change when the 1st inning ends and the 2nd inning begins is that your dailies and such will now apply the the 2nd inning instead of the 1st inning.

Look at the number of players in each tier. Somewhere around PR/WC.

I think I was able to give the Dodgers fans to steal quicker by trying to steal their fans and quitting.

I think the All Star banner looks the best last year and this year so that's what I fly.

I don't think people understand how short the time frame is to devlop a sports game compared to any other kind of game.

Complaining about directional hitting (assuming that person does not atually use the directional part of it) is like complaining about classic pitching.

I don't see nearly as many posts about how we should only be allowed one method of pitching.

Most of the jogging I've seen has been on balls in front of them that they won't catch by running. However, because they do not run until the ball lands, the play that should be a single turns into a double.

posted a comment in Devs - What is "Contact"?.

I agreee but it doesn't look to be the case anymore. I was looking at 2 players with the same vision, one with much higher contact and the PCi size looked identical. I'm going to do some more experimenting later this week.

What do you mean the chance of base hits? That made sense before PCI but now you are inputting where you are looking.

Don't forget the ones that require RBI with you having no control of how many people are in scording position

Or the Musial "get a run" one that was just when the guys batting after you would let you score.

posted a comment in Anyone else just not having that much fun?.

Yes, I am feeling the same. There is something just overall frustrating about the game.

18: You can grind anytime you wanted and just relax and be achieving things. The people complained about the "hours in a row on Rookie at Coors doing hit and quit" chose to do it that way and chose to do it all at once. I did it more slowly and had fun chaning up my squad depending on what I was trying to do and always making some progress at something.

 

19: First, all of the hits means it's just frustrating/not as fun overall that it seems like so random on whether all those hits turn into runs. Plus people are also getting hits on the most random stuff and it's harder than ever to just pitch well. Then there are Moments that are all of the annoying single game grind missions combined into one. You can literally spend hours doing the same moment and not achieve it which each failed mission making no difference in completing the next one. Then you finally do and the rewards are so minimal. When i finished the long grinds in 18, I had a really good diamond that was better or equal to any live series card in the game. Now after I spend hours on the Bryce Harper moments (even if you finished them all first try it still would take quite some time) I get... Gold Bryce Harper that might make my bench. Or in the other ones you get what, a couple hundred stubs for your troubles? But even if the rewards were as good as they should be, I don't think anybody considers those Moments to be "fun" until the difficulty gets easier.

 

On the other hand, RTTS got a lot better so at least I can do that when I get pissed off too much.

Did you really just say Keith Hernandez is a great card? He's a first baseman with no power!

So are they done having new cards as rewards?
