Have you had your eyes checked? Maybe it’s an eyesight thing. There was once a guy named Ricky Vaughn that threw real hard but had trouble hitting the strike zone. Turns out all he needed was glasses.

More of a stew

Could be a vision thing hard to get my eyes checked right now though

Just finished game 8. Threw a two hitter and lost 2-0 on two solo shots. Quit in the 7th out of frustration. Been playing a lot of games like that lately. Just deleted it. I’m sure I’ll be back, but it’s tough. I’ve loved Diamond Dynasty for years, usually playing into January, but it just seems so out of balance this year

Gold 15.

The last two years, I played RS in the high 700 low 800 range. This year I can barely crack 600 and am ranked in the 400s right now.

Are you being patient or free swinging? Patience in this game is an absolute must. Where do you keep your PCI?

Is your TV in game mode?

I am walking two to three times a game. My strategy is to drive up pitch count and get into bullpens because most people ignore those.

But I take pitches and suddenly I’m down 0-2 to two up and in fastballs, I take a slider away, a change up low, then strike out swinging on a high fastball in the zone

My tv is in game mode. I’m not sure what the response time or Input lag is, but it has been fine the past couple of years for this game. In fact, it’s an older tv I use specifically for gaming because the lag is almost non existent

My suggestion would be if you’re having trouble on those up fastballs sit PCI up and really wait for the FB. I know it’s so tempting to chase the slower pitches low in the zone but maybe for a game or two just be super disciplined and only sit on the fastball. Also, definitely check to see if your tv is in game mode

Maybe change your hitting approach? You’re striking out a bunch anyway, it sounds like. Why not just look for those up and in fastballs early in the count? You’re just putting yourself in an 0-2 count anyway trying to take pitches. What could it hurt?

Tried this. A lot of good okay and good good ground outs. I’ve always wondered if this game penalizes you for swinging at the first pitch unless you have that specific quirk

I’m assuming we’re talking about online play, right?

I think it’s kind of pick your poison. Sure, sometimes I swing early in the count, square something up, and get a good/ok good/good out. Is this better than taking two strikes down the middle?

I guess ultimately, it’s just the amount of good swings we put on the ball that determines the outcome. Sooner or later, a good swing will fall for a hit.

Personally, I can’t force myself to play online when I’m frustrated with the game. Like the other day I faced a guy named Big Daddy something with the hot pink uniforms. I got two outs and then an error by my third baseman and a couple of jam shots that fell and next thing you know Im down 0-5 before I even hit. My first three batters were all well hit for outs.

I just quit because I knew it was not going to be fun or get better.

Maybe watch Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan or something?
