I don't know if it cheats or not, but i've realized that when the AI has decided it's going to win a game, it's going to win a game.

I only play with the Reds, so i know they suck, but i was the playing the even worse - on the game - Braves. I was 6 games over 500, they were like 5 under. My pitcher's got 4 stars. They got Dickey and an empty bullpen. Rain delay of like an hour after the second inning and they beat me 15-12. With an empty bullpen and Dickey pulled out in the 3rd. Ozzie Albies with an OPS+ of 80 in AA got 5 hits and a walk. My closer - pretty reliable all season - surrenders 4 hits to mostly .180 batting average guys. I mean... When I managed to tie the game, their mighty bottom of the lineup destroys my closer... after hitting Iglesias in the sixth for 3 or 4 runs..

The AI doesn't "decide" to win. The engine is entirely based on probability based rolls with factor sets and opposing input offsets. Chance and luck play into it too.

I believe what you are experiencing is called confirmation bias and "Fandom". It's hard to see your team lose when everything points to winning, but, it happens. It happens all the time in real life, and so it happens all the time in this SIMULATION. If you prefer to always win when your team has the higher ratings than the other team, might I suggest you try MLB The SHOW, or some other arcade style baseball game.

I apologize in advance if this response seems antagonistic or rude, I do not mean it to be. It can be hard to convey intent in writing. I truly do empathize with you, as I have gone through the same feelings over the years.

Quite the opposite, actually, or i wouldn't play with the Reds every single time in every single OOTP, haha.

But an empty bullpen for 6 innings seems too much to me, sorry.

There may be a AI steroid cheat involved here.

Okay, you are right, it cheats. I tried to convince you mostly to convince myself, but it is just to obvious. If I sim games, my team plays to expectations, but if I play out the game, my #3 ranked offense can't hit and my %$*@ pitching staff is worthless.

I am about to rage blow up my team, and promote the entire AAA roster!

I mean, come on, Billy freaking Burns?!?!?!?

It's like, last season we had good pitching, but couldn't hit. This year, with the exact same core group of players (My big offseason move was RE-SIGNING JD Martinez) we are killing it with the bats and the entire pitching staff is "Nuke" Laloosh!! I think the AI knows I'm tip-toeing on the edge, and it's laughing at me......

Okay, nevermind. We just beat the Indians 6 -1. I think this game is fair.

Nice to know that there are others that agree with me.
Yes, my Mets season is still going and I'm still having fun.
But it still doesn't matter.
The AI Cheats it's A$$ off!

whether serious or not, I have watched nearly 2000 games of OOTP in '17 and '18 and I can say unequivocally "thats just baseball". There is no cheating, sorry, get over it if you believe that.

we ALL have had games where we want to throw the computer out the window when something crazy happens. As much as its agony of defeat is the thrill of victory

Not if Justin Verlander was pitching. If so, the game cheated in your favor.

The OOTP AI is a backstabbing, malevolent, conniving, underhanded CHEATER!!!
I love this game, but when you play out the games, you are at the mercy of a merciless AI!
