The hitting was perfect SDS...

SDS

The hitting engine was so great... so great. I was having the most fun I’ve ever had playing The Show.

Why did you change hitting? Because a couple little pissbabies couldn’t shut their mouths for once and be satisfied with the state of the game? It was great. I don’t care that game scores were up. Hitting felt so rewarding. A squared-up ball was hit hard and a perfect-perfect ball was hit even harder.

Now you’d be lucky to get an exit velo over 100 on a perfect swing... and that’s with some of the best hitters in the game. Hitting has never felt so unrewarding. It’s so frustrating.

On behalf of all the community, I am begging you to change the hitting back to what it was pre-patch. It was perfect the way it was.

“I suck [censored] at the game and some guy hit fourteen bombs off of me because I am not able to hit my spots. I think hitting home runs off of me should be impossible because if I can’t hit home runs no one should be able to.”

SDS

Yeah, they shouldn't have nerfed hitting lol that was the bright spot of the game. They should have left hitting alone and fixed pitching and fielding.

if you want arcade baseball go play slugfest or mario baseball. MLB the show has always been a sim style game having batting averages of .400+ up and down the lineup along with 5+ era's is not actual baseball. Yes mistake pitches should be crushed, yes hitting should be fun & rewarding but the same way you find 6-5 games boring I along with alot of ppl find consist 15-13 games boring because it's not baseball the sport the game is trying to simulate.

Ah yes... one week in and we have “elite pitchers.” My bronze and silver relievers’ 88 mph fastballs definitely should not be giving up hard hits to high golds and low diamonds.

they would find a way to compete and dominate thats why there the best of the best. Glavine & maddux dominated in the most hitter dominate era they were regularly facing great hitters.

SDS

Just remember those HOF hitters typically got out 70% of the time...

SDS

Oh greatZ I haven’t tried it today. Hitting was fine, if I missed a swing it was normally an out if I hit it perfect or good it was a high hit chance..... I dread turning on my machine now. Past years 3-2 games were awful, I don’t like the 19-17 type games all the time, but 2-0 games are just as bad.
The reason it was like that now is because pitching input is worthless and there are only a few decent pitchers to use right now. If they fixed pitching and fielding the game would have been better.....

Instead they apparently take the only bright spot and make it as bad as the two broken ones

Yeah but they were ony facing 2-3 great hitters/ steroid users per team. If you hypothetically put the best player of all time at each position in a lineup againt Grex Maddux, he will obviously do better than almost any other pitcher, but he is likely getting tagged for 5+ runs a game

thats on you I have a rotation of 2 diamonds and the rest golds and its the same story. If they want to keep pitch speeds at were its currently at then something else must be done. Im not saying hitting shouldnt be rewarding but it also shouldnt be this easy.

I don’t think you understand... a baseball doesn’t care who threw or who hit it. If it’s barrelled up, it should be hit hard. If my Nolan Ryan throws a meatball right down the pipe and Hunter Renfroe turns on it, it should be destroyed. If you make a bad pitch, that’s on you. RNG shouldn’t be there to save you every time.

what Im saying is its too easy to barrel up a baseball in this game and if your talking RNG id say pitching is suffering more from it than hitting. If you just miss with the analog or whatever interface you use its most likely going down the plate even if you were placing a high fastball and just missed your realease early (which years past meant the ball would go higher than you wanted not lower).

And that’s the exact problem. Hitting didn’t need to be tweaked at all. Pitching with better control and faster pitch speeds were what was needed. Not hitting changes

I think they are going to do everything they can before upping pitch speeds or fixing pitching controls.. Imo they want as many ppl possible to consistently cacth up to a heater

Actually, 15-13 games are pretty common place. All last season ( and really the last 8 season) everyone was saying how the ball was juiced. Forcing a simulation where every game is 6-5 is not baseball.
