Congratulations on your success mashing the ball. However, any baseball video game where the top players all have ERAs in the 6s and 7s is horribly out of balance.

I agree, they need to make hitting on Legend much more difficult for these crazies.....

Like you said in a post a few days ago, there are just way too many homeruns in this game right now. I might have exaggerated a bit when I said “all” top players have ERAs in the 6s and 7s, but in 2020 the average MLB era was 4.44. I have to get into the 60s of the RS rankings before I find a player below that and into the 80s before I find a sub 4 ERA. Hitting as been too OP, especially lately and the game has gone into arcade territory, which is ok I guess if that’s what you’re into, but some of us that like to pitch and like the simulated aspects of this game are frustrated.

my ERA is 2.20 with over 80 RS games played - my record in RS is based on my great pitching, purely in AS mode keep in mind - not my hitting

your premise doesn't work though i applaud your effort

How does my premise not work? You just gave one personal example, one data point to “prove” that my premise was flawed. You could just be an outlier (and a great pitcher to boot). You’ll have to show me more data, but from what I’m seeing, the vast majority of the top players have extremely high ERAs indicating an imbalance in the game play

Your 80 ranked games and 4 this season (when all the cards with absurd hitting stats came out) show a very small sample size, play a few more games this season, especially once you get into the 600s, 700s and 800s and see if your argument still holds up. If it does, then let me watch some of your gameplay, because I obviously need to be taking pitching lessons.

Its no secret the more you face better competition, the higher your ERA will be. I’m slightly below 4.00 ERA and I consider that outstanding for someone who makes WS regularly. If I kept onplaying, I’m sure I’d match against goons that would destroy my pitching but I usually stop after making WS since my hitting isn’t all that great to hang with the elite. I get by on my pitching

Some goons in the 1000’s rating can hit anything inside the strike zone al over the field. I’m not one of those

SDS

I complain at the game quite a bit. I’m looking forward to receiving a “git gud” reply so I can immediately challenge that person to a grudge match 😂

That could be very well it. A lot of those guys are very good. I would think at least, that at that level, they would have at least decent ERAs though. Maybe I’m wrong, but shouldn’t there be some players with high averages, some with low ERAs and some with both instead of almost all with high averages and high ERAs?

No because they all play each other at shippett and it’s pretty much a slug fest every game cuz they’re so good at hitting. I grinded out top 50 last year and I understand why nobody up there has a good era. It’s such an offensive meta. The goal is to just out slug everyone else lol

Well that’s the thing, it’s very simple. Pitching is alot harder than hitting in this game. Some of these goons can hit any pitch in any area. If the average BA in the top50 is .350, it’s very normal to see the ERA’s of these guys being extremely high too. Anyone can dot a pitch in the same area but very few can hit it consistently everytime. Pitching is much harder than hitting

That’s what it appears to me. It’s probably my problem. I like pitching,
and don’t have the patience for 12-10 ballgames all the time.

I would hope in that case that they would nerf hitting some in order to balance out the gameplay a bit more. Get it closer to realistic levels. I’m going to get a lot of heat for that opinion, but I like the simulated aspects of this game, and right now, it’s way to arcady for my liking

Sorry for the double quote. I don’t know why it’s doing that lol

This current event is a perfect example. Some of these guys with 1000 games played and batting averages near .400 are near impossible to get out on AS ( I hate that difficulty for events). It’s an absolute joke at times.

I completely get what you’re saying. But it’s hard for SDS to make a game to cater to all gamers. Look at the endless posts about hitting being broken and people struggling to score on HoF while goons like @mitchhammond24 hate playing on HOF because they post double digit runs everytime.

There are alot more people that play below 700 rating than those who play above that. Those who struggle to get to HOF have a hard time scoring runs

FYI, @mitchhammond24 won a game 17-16 if I’m not mistaken on HOF couple days ago. Pure insanity for me. For him, probably a breeze

It should never be a one or the other choice. As you said, if one side is favoured over the other, the game isn’t balanced correctly. Good pitching should beat good hitting in baseball. Too many foul balls, too many home runs, too much contact generally on all star. HoF is slightly better, but still not perfect. I can’t speak to legend, I’ve rarely played that difficulty H2H.

Pitching is much harder than hitting

I would hope in that case that they would need hitting some in order to balance out the gameplay a bit more. Get it closer to realistic levels. I’m going to get a lot of heat for that opinion, but I like the simulated aspects of this game, and right now, it’s way to arcady for my liking

Sorry for the double quote. I don’t know why it’s doing that lol

I completely get what you’re saying. But it’s hard for SDS to make a game to cater to all gamers. Look at the endless posts about hitting being broken and people struggling to score on HoF while goons like @mitchhammond24 hate playing on HOF because they post double digit runs everytime.

There are alot more people that play below 700 rating than those who play above that. Those who struggle to get to HOF have a hard time scoring runs

I meant to say “nerf” hitting. [censored] autocorrect. But yeah, probably my problem. Hitting is more fun for more people. I like pitching, so the game might not be for me anymore

It should never be a one or the other choice. As you said, if one side is favoured over the other, the game isn’t balanced correctly. Good pitching should beat good hitting in baseball. Too many foul balls, too many home runs, too much contact generally on all star. HoF is slightly better, but still not perfect. I can’t speak to legend, I’ve rarely played that difficulty H2H.

It’s funny, up until a couple of months ago I was complaining about the opposite problem. Seemed like it was so hard to score runs And get hits. Then its like someone flipped a switch in October and now every game has high scores For both me and my opponent. Maybe I just complain too much And need to play something else

Its no secret the more you face better competition, the higher your ERA will be. I’m slightly below 4.00 ERA and I consider that outstanding for someone who makes WS regularly. If I kept onplaying, I’m sure I’d match against goons that would destroy my pitching but I usually stop after making WS since my hitting isn’t all that great to hang with the elite. I get by on my pitching

Some goons in the 1000’s rating can hit anything inside the strike zone al over the field. I’m not one of those

That could be very well it. A lot of those guys are very good. I would think at least, that at that level, they would have at least decent ERAs though. Maybe I’m wrong, but shouldn’t there be some players with high averages, some with low ERAs and some with both instead of almost all with high averages and high ERAs?

Well that’s the thing, it’s very simple. Pitching is alot harder than hitting in this game. Some of these goons can hit any pitch in any area. If the average BA in the top50 is .350, it’s very normal to see the ERA’s of these guys being extremely high too. Anyone can dot a pitch in one area but very few can hit it consistently everytime. Pitching is much harder than hitting

Could also be the extreme number of cards that are juiced now too. Lately I’ve seen so many horrible swing (early swings on outside offspeed pitches) getting bailed out its unreal. I just laugh it off and move on but every lineup is filled with guys with 100+ power/contact and everything gets punished it seems whereas if you missed your spot to a guy with 70/80 power two months ago, probably resulted in a lazy flyball

I think you’re right. Like I said, hitting is more fun than pitching for a lot of people, and to keep people interested in the game this late in the cycle, they have to cater the game more to hitting. Would be nice to have some juiced pitchers though.
