Timing window feels...off

Timing window feels off, I just can’t explain it man, it feels really weird right now.

I was very early on literally every single pitch in a ranked seasons game rn. Game is actually unplayable currently. Literally every single one

Feels the same way for me, it felt so great the first few days and the patch ruined it. I threw two no hitters today also as it seemed like my opponents felt the same way. They just could not hit anything hard. 20 innings in a row without giving up a hit, garbage.

Feels like pitch speed are super slow, I’m usually in front of everything so then I’ll tell myself to wait back a little longer then I end up getting late/very late timing. And it feels like when I do time it well I end up hitting into an out. I’m still getting hits, but a lot of them are singles and gappers meanwhile my opponent will get will match my hit total yet 8 of his 12 hits were homeruns and all 11 of mine were base knocks and occasionally a double lol

Hitting was fine the way it was all they needed to do was fix the pitching control. I can’t tell you how many balls I’ve had perfect release on with guys with great pitchers miss the black or just end up floating down the middle of the plate.

Seriously, nothing is hit hard now, unless I get a perfect perfect. good good and below feel like they've been hit with a pool noodle.

This patch literally ruined the game. There were tweaks needed, sure, but NOT THIS.

I’m not sure there’s any point to play right now. It’s literally driving my stats Inyo the ground.

I played two games yesterday after the patch and nothing was coming off either bats hard except for a couple solo homers.

I was ahead of fastballs and behind changeups and sinkers. I know It’s only two games but it felt really wonky

This is definitely my gripe right now. I'll have different timing windows game to game.

Games #11 & 12 of a BR run...had this issue where I was late on all fastballs. I go from being on everything and having a really good approach at the plate to panicking because for some reason there is input lag and I can't get around on anything.

One game from that Bellinger...it hurt.

I swung very early on everything. Everything.

The large majority of my games I'll say I'm usually early. But the random games I put the same swings on balls and I'm late/too late is really a problem.

I hear HOF/Legend just amplifies that issue

But hey, I bet user batting averages are more “realistic” now.

The same thing has been happening to me. 1 inning my timing will be perfect, then the next it’s either early or late. Even when I try to adjust, I flip to the opposite end of the spectrum. I’ve seen it happen inning-inning and game-game.

These issues make Showdown an exercise in pure frustration.
I saw a video earlier in the week with the author saying: 'Don't
cry like a beyotch if you're having a hard time,' but there i was
screaming at my monitor in disbelief at how much tougher
batting has gotten.

Online is unplayable right now.

Because it is off!!! It’s a complete fucking joke!!!
