Okay seriously this time

SDS

Does anybody have a decent era in this ?? I’ve played like over 800 games and mine I like 4.6 and I use to be a good pitcher . I’ve said before on here I use meter ... I tried analog I’m not crazy about it ... literally I just get shelled out of games giving up big runs early I can’t get the chance to focus on hitting because I’m getting smacked HELP !

SDS

Short answer... nope.

SDS

You’re saying nobody really can pitch in this game ?

Pretty much. You can and you will pitch okay, until whatever is running the pitching logic decides to hang a meatball right down the middle despite your placement and input.

Go look at the leaderboards. If you made ws with your era, you would/do have something to brag about.

SDS

Mine is 1.36 over 150 or so games. I use analogue and it seems to avoid the majority of the meatball problems, though I've basically stopped throwing changeups at all.

SDS

I can’t control anything on analog and using meter I don’t think the hanging meatball is my problem everything gets hit even pitches out of the zone

1.36 over 150 games? That's insane. You might actually be the best pitcher in the game and I'm not even kidding. Are you sure that's correct?

SDS

Not much but hold a 2.88 over 50 games. What works for me is being aggressive and if necessary pitch to contact. Make the batter beat you, don’t issue the walk.

I've just checked and apparently. I've struggled with hitting a bit this year though.

My limited advice is the only way to not get smacked around is to try and Dot and Tunnel pitches around the edges of the zone. I'd back myself to limit walks as much as possible. Anywhere close to the zone is problematic.

Are we talking about Ranked Seasons? That is seriously incredible, kudos to you.

TBH I only think so. it's what's on the UP. It definitely doesn't feel that low when I'm playing. Everyone gets blown up in events.

The event doesn't affect ERA in Ranked Seasons. You can check your ERA in Ranked Seasons by clicking on the Ranked Seasons tab in the DD menu, where all the different tiers are (wild card, division series, championship series, world series etc.). In the top of the screen are all your stats presented, like your record, your BA and also your ERA and WHIP.

SDS

I only have about 25 RS games so far but my ERA is around 1.60 with about a 0.64 WHIP. Not the biggest sample size but im hoping it won't skyrocket from here.

SDS

My ERA is 4.41 and it’s the most annoying thing about this game, far more annoying than anything related to hitting. I can’t hit the ball, I’ve never been able to hit the ball, I don’t really care too much about hitting the ball or winning and losing games. I just can’t stand giving up 6,10 or even 15 runs a game every game on average. I hate Shippet, I hate these stupid football scores with a dozen solo home runs for each team, I hate the fact that there’s nowhere you can throw a pitch aside from into the opposite batters box without your opponent making contact with the ball, I hate the way all my pitches are thrown up and out over the plate when I view my pitch analysis after a game, because who the hell aims up and dead centre when pitching, I hate the way pitches on the black are almost always called balls, I hate the way check swings aren’t called strikes, I hate the fact the game is totally geared towards offensive output with no respect shown for defense and pitching and I can’t really say that this patch has done anything to improve the state of the game in terms of fixing any of that stuff.

I just checked and your lifetime ERA in RS is 4.08 which is a lot more realistic than the 1.36 you mentioned. Not trying to call you out or anything like that, I was just blown away that anyone could have an ERA that low. Maybe you mixed up some numbers or checked the number at the wrong place, I'm not sure. Either way this number makes a lot more sense to how the game plays and isn't even that bad either.

Looks like that. My Universal Profile is trash.

Mine is 3.09 through 286 RS games. Pitching is my strength no doubt!
