Buying a monitor tonight. My guarantee to stardom right?

SDS

So yeah said screw it and I’m picking one up after work. Gf may break up with me tonight but I’m looking to make a run.

SDS

Depends what kind of tv you were using. Newer tv’s have very comparable specs to monitors.

SDS

If your tv isn’t close to 5 Delay yes it will make you way better. Will take getting used to so your not very early on everything including fastballs tho.

SDS

Buying a monitor for this game is like taking steroids. You still have to be able to hit the ball

I use a Samsung from 2014/2015 that doesn’t have a game mode. Input lag is suppose to be the same across all modes but I’m looking to finally get a monitor too. I’m curious to see what it’s like. You hear and read so many things about monitors.. there’s really only one way to know.

SDS

Yea I’m curious to how I’ll do. I’d say I’m ok. I’ve ran into World Series once last year but it was bout when everyone was done playing. I’ve been using a Samsung tv I bought around 2014. Had game mode one on it. But play with a wireless connection too

SDS

You still have to put the PCI on the ball. The monitor will definitely help you to see it better though.

With a monitor this season I’m playing a lot better. I’m 14-6 and two of those loses came from a freeze and a network error. I haven’t played much but if you get a decent monitor you will see the ball better. As far as hitting it that’s another question all together. Low off speed messes me up for sure. I can catch up to fastballs now

SDS

Most people I know that play The Show if not all have monitors and 100% of them are complaining about how fast the ball gets to them. While you could be early on a sinker or fastball you still have to put the pci on it and that's where the skills come in handy.

This. A monitor isn't everything, and if you think it is you'll be very disappointed.

SDS

Without the GF to bother you, you’ll get plenty of practice and will definitely push you to WS. So monitor well worth it.

SDS

Ya the monitor makes it way easier to be struck out 15 times a Game

SDS

In division series let’s see how this goes

SDS

Depends how the rng and scripts go for you 😂

SDS

Hey I’m curious. Kinda dumb with these monitors but FPS Mode is the way to go right?

SDS

Takes a lot of getting used to at first but SO worth it once you have played 5-10 games on one. Definitely use one of the strike zone hitting views and you'll be solid.

How’s it going? At some point in my life I will do this. I just don’t have a place in my house to put it.

Give an update guy!

SDS

Obviously a monitor is better but for me they weirdly make me sleepy especially in game mode probably because the lighting off screen and being close up.

SDS

Ya I’m lost I don’t know what monitor to get or what to look for so if anyone has suggestions or advice let me know
