I am playing on the rookie channel, I have no misses and two crashes, my opponent has two misses...I LOSE. How in the HELL is this possible???? The answer is, It is NOT possible. There is obviously a way to cheat DURING a match.

The Rookie room is a death trap for good players, like yourself. It is the shortest game of all of the rooms, as it only takes 3000 points to win a game. There are also a lot of x2 balls in that room. All it takes is for your opponent to get a crash against a board for 300 extra points on a x2 ball, and you're done for. I learned my lesson quickly. I often get invited into the rookie room, and a couple times I accepted. I lost one game there, and I didn't even miss any pitches! No one is cheating during the game. My advice is that
you are too good a player to be messing around
in that death trap. Just stay out of it!

I'm not a very good player and my heart just isn't in it anymore.

I've played you, and you are a good player, so keep your head up! Let me give you a little advice, if I may. I was able to hone my skills by spending a lot of time in the practice mode. Click on every type of pitch, and crank it up all the way to 99 mph. I know Dannyshan also used this method to start out, and now he's a legend! I would play 50 pitch sets at a time, and at first I was lucky if I could hit 20 of the pitches for homers. But eventually, I got to the point to where I could consistently reach 40 out of 50. Try it, and let me know what you think. And by the way, you may want to exclude the screwball in your practice, as it is never used in match play. I know you enjoy the game, and you are a good competitor, so stay at it, and set reasonable goals for yourself in match play mode. You don't need to be a top 100 player to have some fun and to be proud of your accomplishments! And stay out of the rookie room! It's too frustrating to play there!

Ranman, I'm just bellyaching. I'm too competitive to give it up. I will follow your advice, and I really appreciate it. Tiznit
