if that freaking runner didn’t break from third with no one on second and less than 2 outs on the comebacker to the pitcher🤬

    That and the fact that with two outs, the runner on first can't score on a double off the wall.

    Speaking of which...

    @TheFullMonte, I am still waiting on my custom 3rd base coach.  Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, Bob's your uncle, etc, etc, etc...

    I'd like to see the option to send a runner from third on a fly or score from second a hit to win.

    Yes, and for 1 energy drink, we should be able to run over the catcher.

    It’s always been one of my biggest complaints in this game is it’s predictability. How long does it take any of us to know when it’s going to be a hit or an out. Not just that but how it will occur and whether the runner will attempt to advance. Certain game types will not end in certain ways. Anyone seen a WOH end by sac fly or because a runner scored from grounder to short. Just wish sometimes there was more variance. If you really look at it compared to any other high quality baseball game(9innings 20, PI 2020, even Baseball 9), it is actually very remedial in comparison. From the look and movement of the players, cookie cutter with TSB, to actual motions of the real guys in the other games. To the playability and controls of the same games, which I think we all know speaks for itself and there is no need to make any comparisons. Truly what is the draw for all of us and this game?? So much, that we would subject ourselves to repeated mistreatment and disrespect, that even worse, come from the Very  creators of the game we devote so much time effort and money to.... GLU

    I love that when you line out to the pitcher he catches it bare handed.

    I just want to be rewarded the stuff I win and not have the game crash during the most important levels.

    I already know its too much to ask.

    Yes, we are aware of the game having crashing issues in the middle of WoH, but we can't compensate you for the gold you lost at this time. This is done on a case by case basis. - TSB Customer Service

    Once in '19 and once again in '20, unless I am imagining things, I hit a grounder to the second baseman with the  bases loaded and less than two outs, and he threw to first! Both times the first baseman dropped it and the winning run scored. Even if he didn't drop it, the winning run would've scored.

    Anyone else have that happen?

    Is that always the case? I know that runners can sometimes score from first on a double, but is that only when the ball doesn't hit the wall on the fly? I guess I'm not that observant.

    In WOH when you're in the midst of an obviously doomed at bat (with less than 2 outs), there's no reason to NOT swing at the 3-2 pitch, right (other than to save time)? Is it even possible to hit into a double play in that spot? I don't think so. The only risk I can think of is turning off your RISP or ROB skill when you're down by more than 1 run.

    I'm thinking in terms of advancing runners on a grounder or sac fly.
    Is there any way to try control whether you hit a fly ball or grounder in a doom at bat?
    Obviously if the winning run is on third, nothing good will happen if you swing (unless you enjoy waiting 14 seconds for that pop-up to the 1st baseman to come down).

    No, it's not always the case - sometimes they do score.  It appears to me that the harder you hit the ball, the more likely they are to score, but I have no idea if what I think I'm observing is accurate.  I'm also not distinguishing between a ball that hits the wall on the fly and one that rolls to the wall - hitting the wall on the fly likely does score the run more often.

    Either way, with two outs, the runner is going on contact and would almost always score.

    I know it doesn't really matter - the actual animation is mostly irrelevant.  From the instant you've made contact, either you have a hit or you don't, and either the run will score or it won't - specific animations that don't make sense shouldn't really bother me, but I find those two particularly dumb.

    Also, I'm 99.9% certain that the baserunner scores much more often on a base hit in CVC than in WoH.

    I don’t mind the animations because as @RodFarva mentioned, it’s just an attempt to show the the result of the at bat. 
    CvC is designed to move runners to benefit the user. For example, a double will score the man on first 100% of the time if there are 2 outs. If less than two outs, it depends on the type of hit. 
    Currently, WoH isn’t programmed to allow us to win on a fielders choice or sac fly. It’s also programmed where the winning hit will correlate to what’s needed, with the exception of a homer. For example, if there’s a man on 3rd in a tie game, you won’t win with a double or triple. If you get a hit, it will either be a single or a homer. 
    If you're not having fun, you're losing.

    I just realized after 3 years of playing this game that there was an announcer. I think I shut the audio off after my first game played in 2018.
