PATCH THE STRIKE ZONE

SDS

I’m sick of striking kids out looking only to have it be called a ball then later in the at bat my pitcher hangs a pitch cause u have to throw in the strike zone and it gets hit out. Stop adjusting the hitting and fix the pitching and strike zones. It’s not hard

SDS

And no I’m not some trash player that needs to learn how to hit or pitch. I’m 42-12 in the event games and 4-5 loses were due to the throwing meter glitch. So if your response is to tell me to learn how to play then don’t bother.

SDS

Agree 100%. It's so terrible. You're forced to throw middle of the zone. Its ridiculous. People complaining about hitting when i think this is the bigger issue

SDS

This happened a lot last year and seemed to happen a lot more when you were ahead. Dotting pitches for 3 innings, get a 3-0 lead, then can't throw a strike or right over the plate.

SDS

Yup. Impossible to pitch when everything on the black gets called a ball. The rate at which balls get hung down the middle of the plate is terrible. They didn’t need to fix hitting. They needed to fix pitching by fixing the strike zone, upping pitch speeds and making input matter more. That alone would have balanced out hitting.

Get used to it...their preparing for robot umps

But if they were prepping for Robot umps then when u dot the line or even a thread crosses the plate it’s a strike. Ur agreeing by not agreeing haha

Actually it was just a joke

SDS doesn't know if 25% of the ball is touching the black, it's still a strike. It's been like this for years.

If it touches the black at all in real life.

Pitches with the whole ball in the zone are getting called balls a lot as well. Hitting was not the issue. Pitching and strike zone umpiring are the 2 main things wrong with this game. Adjusting hitting isn't going to fix the main issues with pitching. Hitting was fine. Way too many wild pitches on good release when I'm throwing a ball in the zone. The game was almost perfect before the 17th and last patch.

Its their new Joe West engine.
