I like this game a lot. It’s very rewarding for the most part. I feel like skill is definitely a factor.
Here are a few things in my humble opinion should be improved. And also things that are great improvements
**To improve **
Perfect perfect should be hits by maybe 10% more I Would say out of all my perfect/perfect contacts. I’ve had about a 60% hit rate. That rate seems more reasonable for good/squared. Perfect perfect should be a hit the vast majority of the time. I don’t know if this increases on the higher difficulty yet.
Defense should matter. Yes. I think you guys are on the right track with it. As far as guys getting to balls they might not. Or not making hard plays. But there is an issue with players locking onto the pop icons. And and it’s not “red” hard plays. Also the ball falling out of the glove. Just stop. No need.
Mistakes on perfect meters directly down the middle on full energy/full confidence? Why are the mistakes always DOWN THE MIDDLE? this is not a MAJOR issue cus it happens way less then it used to but it’s still annoying. I get it if the pitcher is low on confidence and stamina but even then he’d be all over the place not hitting a middle spot every time.
- Pitch speed as someone pointed out is def way too slow. Actually oddly slow not really sure what the thinking was behind this.
**Major improvements **
People are not fouling a million balls off in the dirt. THANK YOU. For the love of god. That alone is such a huge deal to me.
The hit engine is way better overall. Balls hit gaps. Not every grounder is to the defense. They sneak through. I feel down 3-4 runs I can come back. I feel like the game is in my hands more.
Content is amazing.
Servers are smooth for me. (Though I did notice others getting disc here and there however for a launch they are pretty [censored] good.
Good job with this one over all. Kudos.
