Re: MLB 14 The Show: Debating the Merits of Quick Counts

I am finally getting to play a baseball game that has BBs and I love it. Through 22 games in my Astros Franchise, there were a total (between both teams) of 141 Walks (6.41 per game). I have been playing baseball games since the early 80s and have never been able to get a realistic number of Walks or Walks Allowed.

I agree that it would be better with an "override" feature and with some 0-0, 0-1, 1-0 counts. However this feature (along with, surprisingly, Dynamic Difficulty) has given me the most realistic and statistically-accurate baseball that I have ever played.

And, for the record, it's not about saving time with me. I still play with Broadcast Presentation ON. My games take over an hour to complete. It doesn't bother me, it's ALL about Bases on Balls!

One last note, it would be nice if you had to press a button to confirm that I was ready to start the next half inning. That way you could make substitutions before the inning started.

Quick counts were a game changer for me. Love them, and couldn't go back to not having them.

Love it. More difficult for me than using every pitch.

Was so incredibly excited for them and I just can't stand them. I've tried them in about 9-10 games now and it screws my rhythm up to the point where I can't even connect with the ball. I mainly just use fast play on with quick counts off, with the occasional game with broadcast on and quick counts on.

I LOVE IT ! Literally a game saver for me and its not for the time factor either its more about SCEA putting together each at bat and compressing it into one pitch and for me that eliminates alot of the long drawn out stuff that bores me after awhile game in and game out so if you want that play the regular way .

This mode has been the greatest addition for me since NHL 07 skill stick

It is a great new feature. I can play a series in the morning before work and a series or two after. Otherwise I could only get 1 done in the morning before work and a few after. So 6 games a day compared to 3. It's a no-brainer.

I want to be able to play a full and even multiple seasons for once. This seems like the only way, if you don't want to sim games

I did not think I would like QC but I love it now! It really speeds up the game, I do not want to spend 2 plus hours playing a video game. I enjoy playing for 30 to 40 minutes like the QC games last. I also enjoy the short length of the FIFA 14 online games (20-25 min.)

Loving MLB 14 so far! Great game!
