Please Allow Guess Pitch in RS

SDS

I know it’s going to be a fastball up and in. You’ve been spamming that pitch all game yet I still can’t get around it. While we are it, being back injuries for diving back to first, prevent that lead off BS. Seems like there is almost no recourse for this actions.

SDS

Lmao ...

SDS

So because you can't hit it, you want the game to bail you out? Do the work for you? I've seen some hilarious stuff around here, but you sir take the prize.

SDS

Huh.......?

SDS

I want pitching power ups like backyard baseball. Try to hitt my 300 mph fastball for an at bat.

SDS

No thanks, that was accidentally turned on early in the year and was super annoying.

It's just like real life, if you guess right and have your bat there, you hit it.

Guess pitch replaces that with knowing exactly where it's going to be because you pressed a button before the pitcher pitched. Nope, nope nope

SDS

I mean if you know it’s coming you wouldn’t need guess pitch on in the first place.

How is this any diifferent from someone spamming up and in 100 times a game because timing windows are off, or because most people don’t have the equipment or internet to get around on it. Isn’t this bailing out a bad pitcher?

Yes I am upset because I cannot hit. There are certain aspects of this game that are out of balance this year and I am offering a suggestion to restore that balance. Nice of you to dismiss my idea out of hand instead of looking at it from another perspective, and offering some helpful feedback.

SDS

Allowing guess pitch in online play would be an awful idea. They actually did it for an event in 18 and it was the worst gaming experience ever. If anything they should completely remove directional hitting from online play and actually fix the timing windows.

This is a much better idea than mine and it’s constructive!!!

Here's some helpful feedback; go into custom practice and practice until you can hit it like the rest of us. In the meantime I have zero empathy for your cries about this 100% non-issue.

apparently you are in my boat dude, I use the up and in and a good player crushes it, we suck- hitting is not for noobs in this game which makes me wonder how they're gonna sustain their current business model when new people to the game are turned off so quick and a business does not sustain if you instantly turn off potential new customers.

No I'm not, but you're asking for cookies when everyone else had to spend hours and hours and hours to craft their skill in this game. And here you are asking for guess pitch because you can't hit an up and in fastball. This game has issues for sure, I'm not denying that. But you sucking at this game is a you problem friend.

I want fistfighting, turbo, and catching on fire brought back into the game like it was in SlugFest 06

don't bother with that troll Seattle, that's all that comment is man, I enjoy baseball as much as or more than the next person and want to have a fun baseball video game to play ala "baseball stars" from Nintendo, this game has many good things going for it but as a noob hitting aint it, those "trolling" probably been playing for a few years and finally "got it" to a point they think they can confidently talk [censored]- unfortunately this is all we have for a baseball video game so practice is needed- I'm with a.i. (Allen Iverson) on this (practice?)especially being this is a video game but right now we are in a realm of kids/people who've been playing for a few years and put some time in/ invested their life to this so we can either play franchise and pretend to have fun or practice and smash these kids.

“I've been keeping my opinion to myself ever since the game launched, because I didn't dive into the online game modes right away. I usually grind some of the offline stuff first to build a somewhat decent team and that's exactly what I did. That meant I couldn't really give an objective opinion on the game since I didn't play online enough yet and for most of us this game centers around the online game modes.

Let me start of by saying that even though I consider myself an upper tier/elite player, this opinion is mine and mine alone. My opinion is not weighing heavier than any offline player or the more casual type of player whatsoever. You do not have to agree with anything I say, but I do ask you to respect my opinion as I will respect yours.

I can describe this game in an online environment in its current state as following:
I can not pitch.
I can not field.
I can not hit.
And yet somehow I can still win.

I throw so many meatballs and I can't control a single pitcher. Good releases sometimes lead to hangers down the middle. Horrible releases sometimes result in absolute dots on the black. Every pitch feels like spinning the wheel of fortune, I'm just lost when it comes to pitching, honestly.

When it comes to fielding, the obvious issue of outfielders not locking onto flyballs is a problem. I'm sure that will be fixed at some point. What annoys me way more is when the ball gets down and bounces off the wall, your outfielder is literally lost. There is no urgency to pick it up or throw it away quickly, you actually run past it often. Singles turn into doubles and doubles turn into triples because of this.

And the hitting.. I don't even know where to start. I struggle hitting fastballs, while I've always been a really good fastball hitter. Now I have to gamble and as a result that gets me out in front of almost every offspeed pitch. It only takes 1 inning for my opponent to figure this out. The funny thing is that an inning later I can be out in front on fastballs while I'm pretty certain that my reaction time is the same as before. It just feels off and inconsistent, I don't understand it.
I also tend to get under the ball a whole lot, while I'm not even slamming the PCI down. In my screen I align the ball in the middle of the PCI, yet the feedback says I got under it too much resulting in a good/okay flyout. This happens to me way too often.
The perfect/perfect idea is great. In reality only the perfect/perfect flyballs with power guys do real damage. I've lined out on perfect/perfect liners more often than not and perfect/perfect grounders are usually just groundouts or even double plays. You'd expect the perfect input would make you find the infield hole, which sometimes happens but not nearly enough.

All and all I'm just really disappointed more than anything. I was really hoping that we could leave 18 and 19 behind us and start moving in the right direction again, like a tweaked hybrid of 16+17 where the flaws of those games were fixed. But that's clearly not their vision for this franchise moving forward unfortunately.

For now I'll keep playing casually instead of competitively, hoping that future patches will resolve some of the stuff I mentioned, but I'm kinda pessimistic about it. Sorry. I usually quit playing ranked around Christmas, this year that might be a lot sooner.”

This was your post from earlier this year. Looks like you were in the same boat as me, at least at one time. Are you allowed to complain yet other people aren’t? You need at least respect other people’s opinions, even if you do not agree with them

SDS

Sorry OP. No disrespect but that is the absolute worst idea ever offered on this forum since 2012 (the last time GP was seen in Ranked DD).

HELL FREEKIN NO!!!

I'm even going to say the most D-Bag thing possible... GET GUD!!!

I would literally sell my PS4 and never give SDS another dime if they allowed that garbage in Ranked. Heck I don't even condone it in events!
