Yeah these pitch speeds are The Show 18 tier level (slow)

SDS

This ain’t it.

Imagine learning from The Show 18 to make them a lot faster in 19, just to revert back in The Show 20.

This is frustrating.

And this how these guys want to built a competitive scene?!

Played a couple games vs my friend in HOF online and neither of us barely struck out. Early on 100 MPH fastballs again... unbelievable. I’m not touching this again until they fix them.

I’m starting to wonder if they simple mess something up on purpose to then release The Show 21 and be like “we heard your concerns and pitch speed is back up for the hardcore players” and blah blah blah.

Another year where power pitchers are useless and not striking out hitters like they should.

Is it that hard to keep the difficulty low for the casuals to beat each other up and leave the higher speeds for people that love the challenge and want pitchers to be somewhat difficult to hit.

The inability to strike out is this games biggest issue. Has been for a few years now

They can’t seem to find a balance between swinging and missing and getting results once you get good contact.

Hitters strikeout more than ever in real life and power pitchers thrive. Yet this game takes you back to the dead ball era.

Doesn’t matter if you have Verlander or Gerrit Cole out there... you’re not striking anyone out unless they literally picked the game up for the first time or chase junk.

But like challenging with fastballs and winning?! Good luck!!!

SDS

I’m not a great hitter and chase junk a lot, but I still think pitch speed is too slow.

SDS

It's really really slow this year

SDS

It's slow, but I am still getting strikeouts. The PCI isn't as forgiving as last year if you miss.

SDS

Yeah I didn't play 19, so I went from playing 18 to 20, they are the same I had no adjustment to pitch speed

SDS

Bump plz fix this sds it’s make or break

SDS

Pitching(and the whole game really) loses all of its fun with pitch speeds this slow. After '18 to do this again is just insane, wtf are they thinking???

SDS

If you play on legend at max pitch speeds then they should be the same as real life, everything else should scale accordingly.

SDS

Come on SDS. you can still appeal to noobs and casuals and keep this garbage slow pitch speeds to levels like All Star and Vet but for HOF and obviously Legend keep it as it was in 2019. Why would you guys go backwards?, whats the sense in that!! You know what release two games, call one "MLB The Show 2020 Casual edition" and the other one MLB The Show 2020 Simulation edition"

SDS

They screwed this up

They need to separate online modes instead of trying to give everyone a participation trophy
