Still concerned over Koogs receding hairline.
How old is Koogs, twelve or something? I'd be more concerned about that high hairline of his. That's not a forehead, it's a five head. A receding hairline is no joke at that age.
Ben Dover (89 power focused CAP).

Not a bad start to the year cards wise.
I think you are a both a bit off base here. Online players account for somewhere between 5 and 10 percent of all players who have purchsed the game.
If you think offline players aren't buying stubs, you may need to rethink that as well. Those who play offline are generally wanting the good cards too, even if it is just to grind against the cpu. Some are simply collection oriented. Whatever the reason, this game doesn't see the light of day without its offline player base through both the purchase price and stub sales.
I just wish they would bring back the career stat grind, something that wasn't timed but have you goals to reach and rewards for reaching them. I actually enjoyed that for some perverse reason. Lol
Other than that and the randomness of the pitching, I absolutely love this version of the game, though.
I do believe there is some randomness to it after using both meter and analog.
It seems the programing requires you to throw the odd meatball occasionally, despite user input.
Surprised it wasn't part of the survey tbh.
I know what quash means in the real world, but I'm not sure I know how you're using it.
Does someone want to elucidate for me?
I thought they were the easiest of the moments so far, and no, I got nothing good from the pack.
Since I don't use it, I didn't realise that it was useless for adding new names. Sorry about that. :)
Click on your user icon in the top right-hand part of the forum. Go to control panel and you will find the ignore list there.
Nevermind... I read that wrong. lol
I seriously don't see a problem with offline hitting. Moments are a different story, and even the difficulties in RTTS seem to a little skewhiff, but the hitting is the least of any problems this game has.
I'd leave the hitting the way it is, set the difficulties where they're supposed to be, and do something about the random nature of the pitching, particularly when using meter pitching.
I think it should be a recreate moment, you know, don't get a hit. I could do that. lol. :)
Man, that sucks. Sorry though, I had to laugh it was that bad.
I literally lol when I clicked to see the ERA. Thanks for the laugh and I hope they fix it up for you. :D
Some people like to relax when they are playing a game, not be ultra competitive. I've played a total of five games online (nine if you count events and BR), and for me, it comes down to putting in the time to play a game straight through. I'm busy, so if there is a stat grind to do I do it because I know I can pause it for half an hour when I have to do something else that needs to be done for work or at home, even a phone call. Once those are done, I can come back and pick up where I left off.
Some offline missions or career stat grinds would be appreciated by people like me. :)
Yep, I started a thread about it a day ago, maybe two. Meter pitching is way beyond frustrating at the moment. I'm actually using analog atm. At least when I miss, I know it's user error because I'm still getting used to it.
It shouldn't be random, it should be a rotation. The same pitcher all the time is ridiculous, but it happens frequently. I went twelve games straight with Bob Gibson last year. This year, Michael Pineda is the pitcher I've had selected the most, followed by Dennis Eckersley.
Thumbs up. I've hit homers off lefty and righty pitchers with him. My longest Homerun for the year is 485 feet and it came off his bat.
I don't have Trout. In fact, I have never bought him or pulled him from a pack.
Puig, Blackmon and Story all rake for me. All three hit awesome bombs and Puig has probably been my most consistent hitter when he is in my lineup. Go figure!
Diamond Adrian Gonzales from the padres' collection. Hit my longest homerun of the year so far, a 485 foot monster, with him.
357... want to see if I can get to some of those free packs. People seem to be hitting good stuff in those packs.
I just tried pure analog, first on a rookie game vs the cpu and then on veteran, and I have to say that pure analog seems far more forgiving than meter.
I'll go to all-star next and see how I go with that before I venture back online.
There is a very noticeable difference between the two though.
