New Patch

SDS

Is absolutely horrible imo. Game is very inconsistent. On center pci, sometimes it’s perfect perfect, sometimes it’s good/squared, and usually it’s good/good or good/okay. The hitting was really solid before the patch. If too many runs were being scored, make hitting more difficult by increasing the pitch speeds or fixing the pitching. Randomizing the hitting is not a good fix for too many runs being scored

Don’t even get me started on the timing window.. something’s off with it too

SDS

Hopefully SDS figures this [censored] out.. if not I’m gonna live in custom leagues where sliders can be controlled.. won’t play ranked if the hitting stays like this

SDS

Totally agree, you can perfect PCI placement and it will randomly say good. They just randomized perfect PCI placement instead of upping pitch speed.

If you play one custom league game you instantly see the difference.

SDS

RS sucks to begin with, if your not fighting broken game mechanics, you're dealing with cheesers and bunt dancers. I played close to 400 RS games last year, this year I dont even have a desire to turn on the game let alone play this online H2H. RTTS and Custom leagues will be my go to this year if I even bother to play the game.

SDS

Besides the incorrect early timing, hitting was pretty much perfect when the game first came out! I am speaking about my experience with offline only.

thats a staple of SDS though, last year at launch the game played great, I would say perfect outside of some issues with fielding animations, hitting and pitching were great. Then in response to all the bug reports and complaints about fielding animations they altered hitting...and a cycle of disastrous patches followed.

SDS

I don't have a large sample size yet, but yesterday I had a perfect/perfect flyball for a bomb and a good/okay weak flyout on seemingly the same placement and feedback with similar hitters. Not sure how I could've hit the latter better than I did and yet it was good/okay.

SDS

Yea something weird with timing window no doubt. I had a couple random games where I was late on everything and get like my timing was actually solid.

SDS

I played 7 RS games today. I even won 6 of them but never felt so frustrated the whole time. It just feels like they're reverting back to the direction of 19 and taking everything they worked on away.

SDS

Yep, not only does it seem random, but if you tighten the timing window too much (we are talking milliseconds after all) you get away from user skill and into setup/equipment/etc.

SDS

Some of us knew this all day yesterday

SDS

I know they were going to patch it, the hitting was just too good.

the sad part is the majority of complaints including myself were about pitching, not hitting...all we wanted was for input to matter for pitching, and if they couldn't do that than just increase pitch speeds so it wasn't BP every game...what do they do in response?..."increase in hitting difficulty"...there response to the question of why so many well timed pitch releases end up as hangers....."walk power hitters"....you can't make this s@#$ up lol

It’s not like our inputs are different post patch, just the randomness of the results we get from them. The explanation from the developer is effectively “we turned a bunch of perfects in squared up and good good, which haven’t changed at all from 19”. This patch was a huge step back from a great product at release.

SDS

Yesterday was so frustrating to me I had to get off and just play Warzone. Pre patch I had no problem with timing. Yesterday anything I hit was Good/Okay with the ball center PCI and if I did get lucky enough to finally hit a perfect/perfect or good squares up it was a line out straight to the outfielders gave me PTSD from '19. I and numerous others said all that needed to be fixed was the PITCHING why can’t they see that. This game was perfect man it’s so upsetting.

SDS

Gonna be testing it out again today.. I’m sure nothing changed but who knows.

SDS

Agreed. I play DD and RTTS more than anything else. I was thoroughly enjoying the game before this last patch. I get on and immediately want to stop playing. Maybe the hitting was too easy before but now I'm swinging a dead stick. Every conquest game goes into extra innings on Veteran difficulty.. My guys get good timing against bronze pitchers and almost only ever get good contact while the ball in well inside the PCI and when I get squared-up or even Perfect Perfect (which apparently means nothing now) it goes right at someone. It's hard to say any of this is random with how consistently bad it has been. I guys I'll just play something else until they figure it out because the game is no longer enjoyable to play. Please tweek your game SDS. So I don't feel like I wasted my money on your product.

SDS

Not gonna lie, I like the new update... Call me crazy

SDS

I also like the new update

SDS

Besides them adjusting the hitting they adjusted the amount of xp you get for every half inning when I first started playing I could strike out the side and get like 550 xp since the patch I get like 266 -280 for doing the same thing. I guess the youtuber and streamers were leveling up to quick
