Early Swings

SDS

Tip for everyone. Never swing on time because its useless! If you want to hit BOMBS swing early! It's the best thing you can do to get hits. You didn't hear it from me

SDS

It's latency related, I often times swing early and just roll over or pull off as expected for a soft hit lineout/groundball.

SDS

It depends on the difficulty, I recommend hitting early on legend, and on HOF try to be just early or just late, In my opinion, in HOF the game rewards you more depending on timing than PCI positioning.

I manage to get put into a rainy Minute Maid game every time i’m the away team. To be early on the ball there I’d probably have to swing before it’s even been released.

Just start swinging now.

Ha that sounds familiar, I split my time between Amsterdam and San Antonio, Texas where my fiancee lives and there are a lot of Astros fanboys in that area. So when I'm there and I'm the away team, it's almost a given we're playing in Minute Maid.

Metro Atlanta area here, I guess I’m just getting lucky with all these Minute Maid matchups.

I gotta say tho, Sun Trust Park (sorry if I'm saying it wrong) isn't a joy to play at either.

That’s fair, it doesn’t bother me nearly as much probably for biased reasons. I still play all my home games at Minor League stadiums cause I don’t wanna deal with 115 mph fastballs on my tv.

Same here, I avoid MLB parks at all costs.

This couldn't be further from the truth. 99.9% of my early/slightly early swings go foul.

Honestly MMP isnt the worst this year. Atlanta is the one I find most laggy. Also LAD. I noticed those right away playing the cpu in conquest.

I can’t say I’ve paid much attention to it against the CPU, but the only MLB stadiums i’ve really played in online are Camden Yards, Minute Maid, and Yankee Stadium. Houston has been by far the worst of those 3.

SDS

Makes no sense. I can hit an early perfect and its a bomb. The next at bat i can hit a just early perfect and its 90 feet foul.

That makes sense, there is a lot more detail at MMP then those stadiums. I dont understand why LAD lag so much though because there isnt much going on there. It would help a whole lot if they just turned off these stupid fan animations.

Yeah I’d rather play a consistent game with empty stands than play a laggy game with rail thin children one biting their jumbo pretzels.
