Just fix hitting... that's all we ask.

SDS

There shouldn't be a world that exists where Frank Thomas makes 15 PCI placement off of a lefty and it has an exit velo of 97 mph and is a lazy fly ball to center. Meanwhile both our teams square up balls and we get nothing.

He gets a go ahead 3 run HR with 12 PCI contact.... I take the lead with a 2 run HR with 12 PCI contact and we both agree to a friendly quit since this game is re-GD-diculous !!!

Just be better SDS. That's all we ask

SDS

Whatta ya know. Very next game guy gets an Early/12 HR on Early contact and next batter gets a good/12 PCI HR. Im done

That's all we ask? Who's we? I feel like you're standing alone on this one. If we had a vote on the ability to fix one thing, I don't believe the majority would choose hitting as you described.

Although getting good timing/good pci go for outs may be frustrating and a valid issue amongst some, I feel like pitch accuracy and check-swinging issues would be in the forefront of gameplay issues. At least that's what seems to be the consensus based on previous posts in this community forum.

I agree

SDS

What numbers you referring to? What is a "15" PCI? Must be some stat I am not aware of.
I'm still a relative newb.

For me it is the inconsistency in hitting. then Pitches floating. then check swings. but great points as well

SDS

Oh, and the ability to lay down a bunt no matter where the pitch is... that [censored] is annoying.

I agree completely. Look at world series players at the end of a season. 90% of good players in this game have super high eras and super high averages. Feels like every game isn't about who pitches better its who hits better. Yet we still complain way more about hitting

I mean, I would hope you would take me seriously, but that is up to you. I wish I got payed. 🙂 For all of the negativity, I try to bring some positive vibes here. I know that SDS is not perfect, but they are not as bad as some people think. I for one love the game. Sure it has it's down moments, as all games do, but I like it! I enjoy getting to play, and talk with people on here. Obviously there are the people like you who just come to be negative, MOST of the time, not all the time. I just try to have a positive outlook. If you don't like that, scroll past my posts. I HOPE that some people appreciate it, but who knows! 🙂

Yep.

Pitch accuracy. Basically every game is a slugfest because of how many hangers the game forces. This shouldn't be.

I dont know what happened, but the pitching is 19 wasn't like this.

Good players already score a ton of runs, but aren't able to keep below a 4 era? Pitching is broken - especially offspeed and breaking pitches forcing a meta that involves the sinker and cutter focus. Top that off with often needing velocity to make your pitcher usable.

Movement and guys with incredible breaking stuff should be usable and competitive. Curveball should actually be useful. Pitchers with nasty breaking stuff should have insane h9s or something to reflect how hard it is to square up their stuff.

That makes things arguably even worse pitching wise.

Hitting cannot be made more rewarding until the pitching issues are dealt with, I'm not looking to play 20-15 games every time because all your good PCI placements on my floaters down the middle leave the park

every game I’ve been playing lately has been exactly as you’ve described. Slugfests with football scores against guys who swing at everything. I put them In the dirt, the ai hangs it for me. I put it away, the pitch doesn’t break. No one walks, it’s just time up, mash the buttons, home run derby. Pitching definitely needs an improvement in 21.

I played a game today, 17 home runs total, it was at laughing mountain and back and forth for awhile, Even with that, it wasn't fun, I don't find that type of gameplay fun. It was the last straw, I'm not going to be away for awhile, I cannot play at Shippett or Laughing Mountain and stay sane.

Here is the box score, it's not even an exaggeration. https://theshownation.com/mlb20/games/132641889?username=eatyum

I am 1-5 on the new season with an ERA above 11

My lifetime ranked ERA is under 4, Idk what's going on, but it really sucks the fun out of the game
