Pitching? Come on, let us know

Thanks for the new patch tomorrow but whats the plan for pitching? Working on it? Leaving it as is? Anything?

SDS

Thats my question too. Hopefully thats next on their radar

SDS

What would you like changed in pitching?

the main problem in my opinion is I can throw a change up 2 inches above the bottom line and it will drop like 3 feet below the zone but if I throw it 3 inches above the bottom line it will be right down the middle and there’s like no middle there.

I think pitching has to be harder than it was in previous iterations. Let’s be honest it is way easier to move a ball into a place while static and then move the stick up and down then it is to move the PCI to the ball and swing with timing in a second or less. In that sense at least this year there’s some skill involved. Maybe just need to cut down on so much randomness.

I appreciate their effort but the amount of pitching complaints vs PCI size complaints doesn’t even compare. Pitching has been brought up since the patch of death after early access weekend. Don’t recall reading too many complaints about the PCI size.

Yeah I'm not sure what feedback they were looking at. But maybe this is their way of reverting back to day 1 hitting

Perfect release should go where aimed, nothing else to say.

What percentage of your pitches would you say you hit perfect perfect releases? I never really pay attention to mine so I am curious to how often it happens.

They were looking at internal hitting metrics and the fact that we've been complaining about the swing timing windows since 1.04.

Pitching is working exactly as intended. Hanging sliders are fun.
