Not sure if it's me or what, but just got no hit and never even came close to a hit. Last two games I couldn't barely put a ball in play. I know Im not a great hitter by any means but holy [censored] this is becoming madness.
My opponent managed a meager 3 hits and a run.
I've seen the posts about monitors.....blah,blah,blah. That's great, but I won't sit in a secluded room for 4 hours on a small [censored] TV just to be able to hit. Something is just wrong on any level that two people manage 3 hit and a run in a game.
I don't know, maybe Im wrong, love the game, but online is just a disaster.

My monitor is in the same place I'd normally set up a TV, in the living room, it works fine. I suggest you at least consider it.

You struck out 19 times in your last game, 21 times the game you completed before that. That's a lot of K's.

I'd start taking pitches, and only swinging at good pitches to hit (easier said than done).

I can’t say for sure, but I think the OP is having to swing right as the ball is being released. There are times when pitch speeds are simply too fast to hit. And if he’s playing on a tv, that just further exacerbates the issue. He could take pitches, but in games like that, he can either swing immediately, and hope the ball is in the spot where his pci starts, or he’ll be too late to make any contact at all.

For sure, and I get that. If it's that situation, it's either a poor internet connection with the other user, or a TV/Monitor issue. It was that way for me to start the year, it's very frustrating.

SDS

Truth of the matter is, if you don’t buy a monitor, you can’t expect to compete at a high level in this game.

I’m getting aged out of this game; I’m in my 40s and my eyes and reflexes aren’t what they used to be. I had to buy a monitor to extend my online career. Lol

Sorry, brother. That’s the way it is. But honestly, I’ve run in to so many players that you can’t even throw a strike to otherwise they’ll mash it. I shudder to think how bad I’d lose if hitting was any easier.

SDS

Why do people who don't own a monitor think those who do, have their face pressed up against the monitor? Like someone else said I have my monitor set up the same way I would have my TV set up. Once I switched to a monitor I did notice my strikeouts went down. I still suck online, but I can recognize pitches better.

SDS

Yeah I get what you all are saying. I'm just frustrated. I do take pitches, but there just simply is zero or weak contact.
Maybe it is time to consider a monitor and figure it out since this is really the only game I play.
I did just have to vent since I'm becoming so annoyed. Nobody said this was easy, but it shouldn't drive you mad either. It's just a [censored] game after all.

Was the pitcher Seaver? I just faced him for the first time and I couldn’t even see the fastball. It was frustrating.

Seaver it was, couldn't even touch the guy. I used Cole and thought I did great.
I can pitch for the most part, but this hitting thing, man it's a different animal altogether.

Next step is shooting the needle or using the cream & clear to extend your online career. I've heard deer antler spray helps as well.

So any monitor suggestions?
Thanks

Anything is an upgrade, I got an asus at walmart for $100 and it's fine. Anything with a response time of 5MS or less, which is virtually any monitor you'll buy.

Some guys here will recommend a $4,950 BenQ with .00000111 MS response time, 3.6 billion pixels, a 1,456,882 hz refresh rate, free Dr. Pepper, and a foot massage.

Just get one at walmart. 🙂

SDS

I figured anything is good, but I'm such a get the best [censored] ever idiot I don't need to overspend for once, but I'm sure I will.

I have a MSI 32' Monitor. It was under $300.00
You want to focus on the response time. The one I have is 1MS. The refresh rate is of no concern to you, unless you plan on getting a PS5.

I do plan on a PS5 so obviously a higher refresh rate, but does anybody really know what would work best right now?

SDS

This is something SDS need to address if possible!!! Most people don't buy a PS4 to hook up to a monitor. Having to buy a monitor just so you can play a game properly is ridiculous. Hopefully this is something the team can address next year.

No you want to focus on input lag. Stop confusing the two.

Well you can buy something now that will work with the PS4 but also have a higher refresh rate for when the PS5 is released. A few months ago I upgraded my 24” Asus monitor and got the Asus 27” VG279Q. It can do up to 144hz so it will be usable with the PS5. IPS panel which looks great and a low input lag. Very solid monitor.

If you don’t have a monitor Make sure your TV setting is on game mode
