What I want for 21 The Show

SDS

All I would like for 21 is
-No input lag/varied connections
-Input/player skill to be consistent both pitching and hitting(if they want casuals to play still, have the pci smaller and maybe higher difficulties the same or the tiniest bit smaller)(with pitching good input with a close pitch location or specify every pitchers pitch control for each pitch)
-Having the bugs with fielding worked out before the game releases
-Make HR/9 a stat again but maybe not have it exit velo based but maybe it's tougher to induce flyballs

That's really all besides that overall always loved the show and I don't want this post to be toxic. The content this year has been incredible and I hope it continues! I'm just excited to see what the new console(s) can do. I have no idea is it will launch on xbox or not

SDS

HR/9 wasn’t a thing until 19 and it worked out fine. We don’t need that back. Also there is always going to be input lag on a console game. Unless the PS5 itself does an incredible Job of reducing input lag it will always be there

SDS

They definitely need to fix the excessive check swings

SDS

I think they need to make RS hof pitch speeds until you hit WS. It seems to play better , and it will honestly provide a true skill gap. All star is horrible, keep it in events and br, but ranked needs to be on hof

SDS

lag and varied connections will always be a part of EVERY online experience, the technology just isn't there to avoid it. Head over to COD forums and watch people complain. "I saw him first, I shot him first, fix your severs".

If you decide to play ANY game online, that's part of the experience. It's certainly not the fault of SDS, or any other game developer, there are far too many variables for it to be their responsibility.

For what it's worth, online connections are far more stable on this game than they are for 2K or EA, those are almost unbearable experiences during high volume times.

Why do we have to keep going through this. 90% of their player base is playing on all star. Why would SDS want to tell them all to take a hike?

Let me quote a line from Taken. Good luck!

Wrong. COD tried to fix those issues with ping based match making but there is only so much you can do in a game with teams of 4,6, etc. People want to play with their friends. You may have a 6 man team with pings of 20, 70, , 80, 110 130 and 135. COD BR plays a lot smoother solo because these variables are more controlled. The ping change in these teams can be dramatic which affects both teams. This can be controlled so much better in a 1 v 1 peer to peer setting than what SDS is currently doing.

Honest question. Did you think RS played lousy on AS in 16 or 17? I didn't. Lousy RS play on AS seemed to start last year to me.

Terrible idea, even though I find this game to play much better on HOF.
The average player can't come close to catching up to a fastball on HOF, they wouldn't play ranked seasons anymore if it was only on HOF.

However, they should tweak the amount of RNG on all star. The pitch speed should be slower then on HOF but the PCI shouldn't be that big and you shouldn't be rewarded a HR for a PCI that isn't on the ball. That is happening way to frequently on AS.

"tried to fix", but they didn't, because they can't. Internet speeds are not fast enough to accurately reflect a millisecond difference in who shot first, when you swung, etc.

Go invent the next breakthrough in broadband, then you can stop complaining 🙂

Fix the issue, or accept it. Those are your choices my friend.

They did fix in solo. Solo in games like COD and PUBG play very well for me. It is when you add squad members. Can't fix when there are multiple squad members involved with varying pings. This game 1 v 1 peer to peer could be fixed.

Agreed. Ranked shouldn’t be an upper echelon thing. It should be difficult but not so overwhelming. We don’t need to hit HRs every time but I don’t want to strike out 12 times because I can’t catch up to 97-102 mph fastball
