Anyone play with default sliders?

Does anyone play this game with default sliders? I appreciate the slider guy's efforts but I'm just about burned out on all sports game sliders. It seems to be a never ending process. Is anyone getting great games on default?

Same here. If I struggle I make adjustments myself, rather than adjust the game to fit my skill level.

Default Sliders. My RTTS First Baseman just had the Dynamic Difficulty upped to Hall Of Fame.

Re: Anyone play with default sliders?

Default sliders has it's issues for me so it's become a must that they are tweaked. However, this game is so well done you have to be even more careful than before with its changes. It's like tuning a very delicate high speed racing vehicle, but when you get it right it is extraordinarily rewarding.

But my reason to not play the game in default sliders, is fielding is hardly enjoyable, even on Legend difficulties everything can be done too easily. Same with hitting, same with pitching, I feel like the AI in these sliders are bailing you out with regard to everything. If you swing poorly at a pitch you still make contact on default, or put balls in play that shouldn't or hit the ball too well too often. Overly rewarded just for making decent contact. Pitching feels controlled by those sliders, you have to go well out of your way to miss a pitch with sliders on default mode. That's not even a good thing because you will consistently end up leaving balls in areas that can be hit too so the effect is kind of a double whammy.

I want to play and know I'm controlling everything that's going on and not influenced so much by what the AI expects to be done. Not knocking the default sliders entirely, they play a well done game of baseball in its own right but there is something more that I'm looking for. And ultimately it is all about what you want to have from your game.

I do, this is the first baseball gave where I feel the default sliders are perfect.
