I can admit when I was wrong, hitting feels alright

SDS

I may have jumped the gun on the patch. I’ve been hitting well and it seems better than before all around.

I’m only speaking from my own experience and not everyone else’s.

Now that I’ve had some time playing ranked, it’s not that bad. Give it some time.

Again, I’m only speaking for myself here.

SDS

I agree 100%. A couple minor things here and there but it's not the big panic everyone is making it out to be.

SDS

This is reassuring. Thanks guys

Yesterday all my good good and good squared turned into good okay for easy outs, I was worried that it would be worse. I've had a 5 hr game and have been hitting like I did over the weekend

SDS

I hate the hitting now. Maybe I’m in the minority idk

They're going to tweak it some more, I'm sure of it. But the timing did drastically change, so that could take some getting used to. Are you not getting rewarded as much? I haven't played enough still.

I agree. I was critical this morning after only playing showdown. But once you adjust its not too bad

SDS

I was also

This is the biggest thing I’ve noticed. I had multiple centered PCI with good timing while using Diamond Eddie and Diamond Sanchez and they produced “okay” fly ball outs that used to be “good” or “squared up” home runs.

I just played my first game on RS. Yeah it’s more difficult, but you’re definitely still rewarded for good input. Plenty of hits and hit variation. We will see how it plays once I get up to HoF on RS.

SDS

People always form their opinions without a large enough sample size.

Those opinions could still be correct though, or they could be completely baseless in the end. It’s all about sample size when it comes to things like this.

SDS

I've been playing literally all day and I am still hating it. I wish I could say I felt better about it but I don't.

I honestly believe they made a mistake. From what I'm seeing, I don't think they meant the game to play like this. Right now, it seems like the only hitters that can do anything are power guys. I was seeing a ton of hit variety prior to today and now all I'm seeing is the same types of hits over and over. It's just not fun.

SDS

Once you have played the game long enough you understand when they nerf hitting and are then hitting with a wet noodle. They broke what they had finally fixed.

SDS

Timing window was seriously messed with, it sucks.

SDS

I honestly don't notice any difference.

I didn’t other than you’re hurt more on pitches that border the pci. Weaker contact (pop flies, choppers) have less EV. That was the difference I noticed other than the pci being smaller (which I personally prefer anyway).

SDS

I;m still struggling, but I am fairly new to the show (October freebie last year), so I reckon it takes a long time to get used to it all.
I'm sure its been asked 100s of times before, but what type of hitting are people here using?
Zone exclusively?

I played my friend online and hof seems to be legend now... pci crazy small and everything seems like gas. Lol

SDS

I have been smoking the ball today outside of one game where it seemed like the timing window was way off. I'm usually early and in this game I was too late several times and I didn't really feel like it represented when I swung.

Overall I'm happy.
