If You’re On The Fringe

SDS

If you’re not sure whether to buy this game atm, I strongly recommend waiting, especially if you’re a higher ranked player. It’s the worst parts of the last two years combined. Slow pitch speeds and still impossible to swing and miss, even on Legend. Only thing that’s better is that there is less lineouts, but every game is high scoring and there’s a very small skill gap. Just my two cents.

Come on bro it’s day one, give the game some room to breathe 😂.
In my opinion the hitting engine looks a lot better and catcher blocking seems to have drastically improved. Game looks good.

Those are two good points, but the overall flow of the game is the same. Beer league scores and in an age of baseball with more strikeouts than ever, there are absolutely none in this game. No fun

Well I mean yeah, it’s baseball. What the game is shouldn’t really change that much. I think it plays better this year and has better content this year.

And don’t worry, the strikeouts will come. They’re just not apparent right now because people aren’t using the best starters and games are being played on low difficulties.

SDS

Strikeouts happen even in games where legends of all time are not pitching.

I doubt the K’s will come. Seems a lot like last year and they never happened

I had 2 pitchers strikeout 10 and 11 batters so far in Franchise mode

I don’t mean any disrespect or to be a [censored] but against a good opponent online that would never happen.

I think Dudeman has a point though. Those who would be on the fence are not likely to be stoked on 18 era pitch speed.

18 they did patch it and improved the pitch speed.... What’s strange is why go back when they knew it was an issue to begin with ? It’s almost like they take 2 steps back to take 2 steps forward...

SDS

Exactly.

The connection on BR is very skecthy. Some games pitch speeds are blazing and some they are slow. Balls hit down line and all of a sudden im thrown out at 2nd because on my screen i never saw the outfielder get the ball and throw it in. WTF??

Even on day one, now 2 I think hes bugging tbh..This is smooth, input is def recognized and believe it will be faster once we've had it for a little. Reason Im thinking that is because input is rewarded those who think they could hit based off 19 thought wrong..This game is smooth even online for me..IDK seems I'm playing a different game than the one he mentioned. Not even going to bother looking to see if top tier... Doesnt matter..Hes bugging

It is recognized and more responsive. But the pitch speeds are way too slow and there’s never any swings and misses

Like I mentioned, I highly expect that gets a boost..Got to understand this is a bizz as well. Dont want to drive off the rooks, they hear us and give us the feedback of the diehards..If it at all possible..That is.

Never? Why did my Mark Prior debut have 9 strikeouts in 4 innings before the guy quit? It should be impossible for that to happen, because never means it cannot even happen once.

SDS

This game is home run derby right now. Pitch speeds MUST go up and power MUST be decreased

Obviously I’m exaggerating, but that would never happen against anyone who’s a veteran at the game. Two good players would maybe get 5 K’s combined in a 9 inning game, if that

That’s not good ...
