Is hitting different for anyone else?

SDS

Last few weeks it feels like I'm swinging a pool noodle. Balls with near perfect PCI placement and good timing just dying on the warning track like 5 or 6 times per game. It's like playing 19 again. Mickey Mantle in particular cannot drive a ball to the opposite field, PERIOD.

For sure. Used to score 10 runs a game on all star online. And consistently score on HOF. Now I’m lucky to get a few runs. My opponents aren’t hitting either for the most part. Even on All star. Even WS level players.

They never can find a happy balance. It’s either too much or too little. For the love of god, bring back some of the pop.

I agree about Mantle too.

What is with the perfect/perfect foul balls? Been doing the Hunter Pence missions and have had a couple of them happen in the past 10 minutes.

ive been thinking the same i usually crush the cpu and just played a conquest game against the white sox ended up going 9 innings with 4 hits and one HR to win the game very strange to me also [censored] near had a double play every inning

I notice this in the event the most. My stats are dropping for “the big 3” I use X to hit, and it just seems like there’s nothing there.

The event feels messed up to me as well. Everything dies down, doesn't help we're stadium locked as well. Oh well...

In the event today I tossed a perfect game through nine and a no hitter through eleven. It went to eleven innings because I couldn’t hit anything either.

Since you mentioned going oppo field with Mantle specifically, I'm guessing you're swinging just late or on the later side of good (with the cursor just right of the center green spot). In that case the exit velocity drops tremendously. While I agree that it shouldn't, because power hitters need to be able to go oppo field without any issues, that is how the game is programmed unfortunately. It's better to swing early and pull the ball.

I have experienced the exact same.

SDS

I agree with how messed up the hitting has been. But what do we expect from the company who could not even get the division teams right during their 3rd stage team affinity? Game Play is the worst its ever been period.

That's been happening a lot with me lately. And don't even get me started on the amount of double plays I've hit into against the CPU.

I’ve got 11 wins, its been a struggle to play because these 6 inning games are not fun without quick counts on. Cbrev played 3 games in almost 2 hours, he said what a waste of my time

I’m like 36-18. It’s been a grind. That’s why Goose is so expensive. Not a lot of people have the stomach for it.

14 more wins. When I get out of work tonight, I’ll get closer. Not selling him, too much work went into getting him.
