Relax. Not one person has said you suck at the game.

You're allowed to be frustrated, you're allowed to post about it. Just use a little more tact with your posts.

Re: I am getting REALLY tired of the game deciding you aren't going to catch a fly ba

Let me ask a constructive question.

For all the people who aren't happy about how this game mechanic works (and the results of plays like the OP's), how would you like to see it done while still being able to distinguish good outfielders from bad ones? If the marker gives an exact landing location every time (or follows the same path), there is no differentiation between higher or lower rated fielders from the user's perspective - because it's just running from point A to point B.

It's harder online with lag at times. I wish they'd give us the option for auto fielding online.

A ROUTINE fly ball that should be caught ends up bouncing next to/over/ in front of the outfielder even though the fielder is standing RIGHT where the ball marker is. It turns into a double or triple and COSTS ME GAMES. FIX THIS PLEASE.

In this latest example the ball marker MOVES at the last second and the ball lands right next to where my fielder is, where the ball marker was previously.

THE GAME SHOULD NOT BE DECIDING IF A ROUTINE FLY BALL SHOULD BE CAUGHT OR NOT!!!
First off...It's a 2-all game with 2 guys on and a 3-2 count and you throw a concrete mixer to home plate.It's never "one" play that costs you the game but rather several actions that lead up to it -- that's the beauty of baseball.

More to the point, the degree that the ball-catch indicator moved is fairly substantial so that's quite interesting to me. I say you should move to auto-fielding...your frustration is the exact reason I switched.

This has happened to me also.

Not what the OP is describing though... only this line drive thing right here. And it's pretty rare. I havent been counting but I'd say it has happened to me about 3-5 times... total, this year, thus far.

Errors happen on routine easy pop fly's and fly balls, and routine grounders, routine throws.

That's the simulation aspect and the beauty of this game.

Do MLB players catch every single ball IRL?


Ahhhhh no.

Last night....playing a league online franchise game. A simple routine fly ball was hit and Brett Garnder was under it.....and it popped right out of his glove.

I smiled.

That's baseball.




No no no, this is NOT simulation, this is pathetic, if it happened say once in literally 20-25 games, sure. this and 2nd basemen throwing poorly to 1st on routiners are just flat out wrong. Its not slow pitch or 12 year old kids this "sim" is of Major Leaguers
