I just did the Nass-Mets comeback moment and failed, in the most MLB 19 way possible:

After scoring 6 runs without recording an out to tie the game, I got the next 2 runners and scorched a "good/good" ball at 110mph+...and Meat Alonso made a diving stab to turn a DP. My next batter, lined out on a "good/squared up" ball. That's when I knew the game was going to make sure I'd lose.

The next 2 innings, I got the first 2 runners on, and Fat Pete made platinum glove plays to start rally-killing DPs.

The next 2 innings, I hit "good/squared up" balls into the gap, that were called extra bases by the announcers, only to have them caught on blind dives into the gap, and my runners were doubled off first.

Then, on a fly ball that my LF and CF didn't bother even moving towards (You all know the scene.), the Mets got a leadoff 2B that scored on a...wait for it...suicide squeeze, because...you know it: the 1B just held the ball for a week, before throwing home.

I lost 11-10, because the hitting input results are totally random, and the CPU defense will turn even the "historically bad" Mets IF and 26th overall defense into Edmonds and Ozzie clones.

SDS, we HATE these ridiculous outcomes: take a page from other developers and patch the things your customers are screaming about...

I just made it 10-8 with 1 out, and Soto and Suzuki swung through 3 consecutive changeups with "good timing" and PCI locations...

"SDS, we HATE these ridiculous outcomes: take a page from other developers and patch the things your customers are screaming about..."

You expect them to patch gameplay issues this late into 19? Not saying it's what happened is ok, just saying if you think they're going to patch 19, IDK what to tell you.

It is because you didn’t use the cheat code. While on offense, press the triangle button on your controller at least 3 times before your opponent gets ready to pitch. Repeat each pitch. Voila!

I have never, in 3 years of playing this game almost exclusively, ever, swung through a pitch that my pci has been on with good timing. Never.

I wouldn't say it so absolutely - however unlikely it may be.

For example, I have tons of clips from 2K where the basketball goes through players, referees and the backboard, seemingly becoming non-corporeal at times. But I would certainly want to see a clip of it as you must have reviewed this in slow-motion in the replay to verify that it actually happened?

I’ve seen the ball go through guys before in 2K I understand that but I’ve never seen someone use zone Hitting, put the pci on the ball with good timing and swing through a pitch, especially in this games where it’s almost impossible to strike people out as even too early/too late will sometimes make contact and very early/very late will make contact almost seemingly every time, there’s no way that with good timing with the pci on the ball it’s a swing and a miss. You know I ride with you a lot bro but this is one that just didn’t happen. Especially not 3 separate times.

I'm not saying it did happen, even once. And if it happened to me I would certainly have taken clips and screencaps to share.

One thing I will say is that quite often the hit feedback will say good/okay when the ball is smack in the middle of the PCI. In these instances the PCI analysis may even call it a 15. I have even had legitimate pop ups with such contact - so the hit feedback is certainly not always absolutely accurate.

When I do this moment, it only seems to happen to Cabrera, Soto, and Suzuki: their BBE also seem to not make any sense, as in they will square up a ball in the zone for an infield fly. Do swing animations impact BBE?

To be fair, are you saying you have never seen the batter barely flinch his toe, without ever coming close to crossing the plate, being called a swing? Clearly the game is not determining whether a swing crossed the plate purely on the basis of the animation.

For example, I have tons of clips from 2K where the basketball goes through players, referees and the backboard, seemingly becoming non-corporeal at times. But I would certainly want to see a clip of it as you must have reviewed this in slow-motion in the replay to verify that it actually happened?

I’ve seen the ball go through guys before in 2K I understand that but I’ve never seen someone use zone Hitting, put the pci on the ball with good timing and swing through a pitch, especially in this games where it’s almost impossible to strike people out as even too early/too late will sometimes make contact and very early/very late will make contact almost seemingly every time, there’s no way that with good timing with the pci on the ball it’s a swing and a miss. You know I ride with you a lot bro but this is one that just didn’t happen. Especially not 3 separate times.

When I do this moment, it only seems to happen to Cabrera, Soto, and Suzuki: their BBE also seem to not make any sense, as in they will square up a ball in the zone for an infield fly. Do swing animations impact BBE?

I have never, in 3 years of playing this game almost exclusively, ever, swung through a pitch that my pci has been on with good timing. Never.

It blew my mind: how can the bat be where the ball is and no make contact?

I'm halfway to uninstalling and canceling my preorder.

Didn't happen

I wouldn't say it so absolutely - however unlikely it may be.

I'm not saying it did happen, even once. And if it happened to me I would certainly have taken clips and screencaps to share.

One thing I will say is that quite often the hit feedback will say good/okay when the ball is smack in the middle of the PCI. In these instances the PCI analysis may even call it a 15. I have even had legitimate pop ups with such contact - so the hit feedback is certainly not always absolutely accurate.

I'm beginning to think it's like the checked swing mechanic, where the animations are actually irrelevant and subverted by perk RNG.

lol HOLD ON LET ME GET THE ALUMINUM WRAP TIME TO MAKE A HAT

To be fair, are you saying you have never seen the batter barely flinch his toe, without ever coming close to crossing the plate, being called a swing? Clearly the game is not determining whether a swing crossed the plate purely on the basis of the animation.

respectfully, and i mean that here - i don't remotely care about this game enough to be making such observations or criticisms

Fair enough, but if you don't care about the veracity of that statement, then why comment on the above post at all, implying that he was promoting some wild tinfoil hat theory? The above poster was essentially relating his own experiences with clippings (for which he truthfully has provided no evidence for) with a rather common observation on how broken check swing calls in this game are.
