Pitch Speeds

SDS

Pitch speeds are wayyyy too slow. So slow that I think high fastballs are curveballs that are going to drop into the zone.

Maybe it's intentional to get us used to the new timing window, but it's really throwing me off. Legend plays like All Star and Hall of Fame plays like Veteran

SDS

I have not been able to sit back enough. Had four hits total over 9 innings in my first RS game. Early on everything.

You’re more than likely playing RS in veteran or BR on all star, I think speeds are fine...maybe a touch faster but I like the timing windows this year

Hitting feels great imo

Conquest on legend and HOF. Everything feels great about the hitting to me aside from the pitch speeds.

Gotcha, my bad. Played one conquest game on HOF so small sample but it did feel a touch slow

Pitch speeds are slower for sure, last year I played offline on legend with max pitch speeds and I can tell the difference.

Yeah, I did the same settings last year and if you notice a difference I will too when I get the game next week. Damnit SDS stop pandering to casuals that want easier game play!!

Agreed, if people want easier gameplay just set it to a lower difficulty level, for people who like a challenge set it higher, not sure why this should EVER be an issue...

I guess its come to this now, we live in a world of instant gratifications, everyone wants to be good at something right off the bat without any practice or hard work. SDS wants the casual player to feel "special" and a sense of accomplishment without putting in the hard work and getting good at something. SDS get your [censored] together and increase the [censored] pitch speed, some of us want to actually play baseball!!!
