A [censored] LAZY FLY OUT ! I am tired of this [censored] !

That is how SDS respond to complaints of too many home runs and too much overpowered offense. They nerf good swings.

Why do you keep playing this game? Seriously man...You post like 10 threads a day bashing the game yet you KEEP PLAYING IT. Did it ever dawn on you to try a different game? Maybe you will find one that doesn’t frustrate you & that you ACTUALLY ENJOY PLAYING. It’s almost Thanksgiving, SDS isn’t doing anymore big fix updates - THIS is the game you’re stuck with until 21 drops. If you don’t like it then try something else. This constant crying is just ridiculous man.

While I do not think SDS did that, it is amusing how people complain about too many HR's then complain when they do not get a home run.

SDS

Alot of it has to do with the "DYNAMICAL" difficulty programmed in the game. As you advance levels and play more they expect you to be perfect and your only going to get rewarded 1 outta 4 times just like real baseball. Is it aggravating sure it is, should you go postal over it probably not its just a video game

SDS

I've had perfects with Griffey and Soto the past two nights that didn't go out. Soto's actually hit the fence cause the guy misplayed it. Griffey's died at the front of the warning track. Had good timing with the PCI on the top dot with Mantle and Freeman and neither even made the warning track. Then I hit a HR with Cobb on a pitch I was early on and my PCI not even touching the ball. The hitting engine in this game is so terrible online. It doesn't seem to be this way offline. Unless you're doing showdown/moments.

More than happy not to get a home run. But if I swing early out in front, I’ll probably get one. Should I time my swing perfectly and put the pci dead center on the ball, my chances decrease significantly. That’s the actual complaint here.

SDS

I'm not too thrilled when I get hold of one and it doesn't go, but there's something that bothers me even more than that. And that's when I get a perfect/perfect, and it's foul. I'm like "what the h ell do you mean it's foul. How could I possibly have done better than that". Now that's some messed up ****.

I know! It’s insanity that someone that hates this game SO MUCH keeps on playing it every single day lol. I honestly want to put together a go fund me to buy this guy the new Spiderman, COD, ect to help him ease his twisted abusive relationship with The Show lol.

My issue is that there just isn't enough hit variety in the game, and by hit variety, I mean base hits. There are plenty of variety of balls in play. Outs happen all kind of random ways. Actual base hits, seem to be predominately low liners, ground ball singles through the infield, or a HR.

If you (not you, but people in general) played MLB 17, one of the big selling points was hit variety. You saw the ball actually have a hook/slice to it when pulled early/slapped late hard down the lines. You saw grounders, liners, and fly balls do it. This lead to more doubles into the corners of the OF and even triples. Add in that you saw a ball actually burn an OF that was smoked into the top of the wall or into a gap. They patched it after the first week like they normally do because they said there was too much hook/slice on the ball, but they've never really tried to reimplement this. Now, the only line drives that find the grass in the OF have to be 108+ mph and split the defenders perfectly!

This is not realistic. Even guys like Mookie, KK, Buxton and other elite defenders cannot get to every single ball. The game is far too reliant on HR or bust. I realize baseball has gotten that way to some extent, the Rays barely scored when it wasn't a HR in the playoffs, but that's also why they lost the WS. The Dodgers got base hits with 2 outs. They moved runners over and kept innings alive. I don't want to see HR on every input, but I want to see legit hits on good, great, solid, and perfect inputs.

I was going to say that maybe wind speed had something to do with it; but that would only be for offline games.

Maybe perfect/perfect should be an out even more often if not hit hard enough or at the right angle to be a HR. The fielders are standing where the most hits should go after all. It’s only deviations from perfect that allow for the ball not to go right at someone. Teams examine statistically where players usually hit the ball and that is where they stand waiting. It could be argued that any non HR hit ball should often be not perfect in order to succeed. Even HRs. Like down the line. But a perfectly hit ball should never be foul.

Why even have perfect input if it’s meaningless?

Exactly. At this point, a lot of my perfect perfect cannot find grass. Perfect perfect grounders : easy play for the second base for an easy out. Perfect perfect liners : directly at the third baseman for an easy standing catch. Perfect perfect fly balls : the ball cannot even reach the warning track even with 125 power. This game is driving me insane.

I complained about this problem as well in the past. The lack of hit variety makes it almost impossible to win a game without relying on homeruns. The game lacks substance and nuance because of this. Just like you said : its homerun or nothing.

I didn't mean that they designed the game that way, they didn't. Just presenting an argument one can make for perfectly hit balls. They do not always need to be hits to be realistic. That said, I HATE it when my perfect/perfect are not hits! lol
