Nearly everyone, including all the top players loved the game as it was and this patch messed it up.

His tweet is pretty emphatic. You can grasp at straws all you like but “Especially when EVERYONE loved the hitting! It was unanimously loved. I actually can't even comprehend why anybody would complain when it was obviously the best gameplay we had in years. Now we're close to another black hole with all these risky patches.”. Doesn’t leave much room.

I think the patch should have never happened. But no need to exaggerate, it wasn't "unanimously" loved. There were a ton of people saying Im GiViNg Up To MaNy hR

I’ve played 3 games now and I feel like I’m hitting better so I’m not sure on what they really changed tbh

You could check the patch notes since I am sure that they went into detail. Let me go have a look.

  • Increase to hitting difficulty in Diamond Dynasty.

Yeah, that is all that was there.

Offline XP has been reduced too. Meanwhile I can't get Eck because of the bugs

They’re focusing on the wrong thing. Hitting was fine the way it was. The problem was that too many pitches seemed to float over the heart of the plate regardless of pitcher attributes and user input. Hence the reason so many balls are ending up in the stands.

Edit: the only problem with the hitting pre patch was that sometimes balls that were hit with good/ok contact would leave the yard when your pci was hardly on it. Or sometimes you would get good/ok contact feedback when your feedback showed you were practically right on the ball.

The bottom line for me is that If I can't get to 300 stars in the first inning, with the added points I will earn doing the full US map in conquest then I am probably done with the game.

It will remind me of '18 when after one month I realized that there was no chance I was even going to be able to earn 1 immortal so I simply quit.

SDS

When the only way to get a lot of points is Showdown which is now unplayable uf you aren't a hitting god...

SDS

pitch speeds need to be increased yet I feel like SDS will do everything else they can before actually doing this

I remember last year they drastically cut program stars after the 1st inning.

I did the first inning and skipped the second and third, but I was able to get to three hundred every other inning playing strictly offline.

They ruined hitting. It’s hard to lock on to anything now. They also messed with the timing window. So all the hours you got used to the way the game was is thrown out the window. It’s not just the PCI. The timing window is horrible.

Timing feels a lot like luck now.

While I haven’t tried it yet, I wonder why they don’t just keep hitting the way it is and jack up the pitch speeds to 16 level with smaller pcis. I’m still a believer that hitter/pitcher dynamic of 16 was the best. 20 would be if the speeds were realistic with the current ball physics and timing Windows. Just my 2 cents

For me I am going to get there just on sheer hours of game play, because I sucked at Showdown before the patch.

In what mode though? The problem for offline players, one that the online players do not really have to deal with, is that once we have completed the inning specific Conquest and Showdown (if you can finish it) and any player programs like the one for Granderson then there is nothing left to do but grind meaningless games for the sake of XP.

In Ranked Seasons, and even Events gamers are playing for a purpose, to improve their rank and earn better rewards. If you play offline all that is left is to play "vs CPU" games that have no point or re-running the US conquest map and earn another 10 pack of bronze and common cards.
