To make him play realistically, they need to have it programmed realistically. Do not give him pitches he did not throw. Program the game to where it is harder for the batter you are controlling to make good contact with the ball. This has always been the problem with zone hitting. Just bc the user can identify the cutter and it’s location, does not mean the batter you are controlling can.
Why even have the controller in your hand then?
You miss the point. For the game to be realistic every player must feel unique and play to their real life counterparts. If players are not properly represented in the game than there is no point to ever upgrading your team or getting excited about new players bc it wouldn’t matter. When you have too much user input, the game cannot appropriately represent each player in a realistic fashion. For example, a pitchers fastball. Of course the user can see it, but to represent the actual sport of baseball and the players you are controlling, outcomes need to be determined more heavily on the players actual abilities. User input should all be about decision making with individual players abilities. A lot of players struggled against marionas fastball, that needs to be represented in the game.
