SDS PLEASE GO BACK TO PRE PATCH

I mean... hitting is utter trash, this game was shaping up to be one of the best and now it's garbage

i just played my first online game this year due to work, its far to say will be my last for a while

I agree... The game was better before this recent patch.. I don't understand why they put out a beta if all they are gonna do is patch the game and change everything/make the game worse.

The game was best when released on the 13th, day one. At least for hitting and fielding. Pitching hasn't changed from previous years and is still really bad with minimal user input.

Blows chunks. I’m gonna have to find a new hobby if the patch isn’t reversed.

I’m just here to sign the petition. Change it back!

I'm in agreement with everyone else. Undo the last patch.

Instead of messing up hitting, they should’ve just buffed pitching. Pitching is a headache and now hitting is almost impossible even on All-Star? It’s pretty much unplayable. Just fix pitching control and fielding

This recent patch has made the hitting timing windows absolute [censored]. Every hit is either early or late rarely any good squared ups anymore all good ok with good user input

Yeah hitting is brutal now. Games not as fun as pre patch.

Change it back

The change everyone wanted was more rewarding pitch feedback and control, so let’s just make hitting less rewarding!

I agree the patch has damaged hitting.

Hitting was too easy before. It‘s more balanced now. Hate to be THAT guy, but perhaps y’all need to learn to hit better. SDS made the change because batting averages across the board were too high. Y’all just happen to not be as good of hitters as the average player apparently.

People like you are the problem. It's obviously broken since week 1 and your telling people they need to get better. Hitting felt easy because everyone was playing on Veteran. I was hitting around .500 in my first 10 games or so. Now that I'm on legend the pci is sooooooo small and pitch speeds are ridiculous. HOF plays harder than Legend did last year. I can't wait for people who are saying hitting is "still fine" to play on at least HOF. I honestly doubt anyone who is good at this game thinks hitting is good. The user input is pointless now and its back to lineouts like 19. Literally feels like the same game now. Good ole bait and switch by SDS like always.

Hitting isn’t balanced now, it’s random just like last year. Between my own experience and watching top players stream you can see this clear as day with center good timed okay feedbacks and weak good good exit velocity. They didn’t make hitting harder, they just turned off user input and added rng.

There’s plenty of truth to that, but it’s going to drive away the casual player. It’s not fun to repeatedly pay and fail showdowns. It shouldn’t be easy, but it shouldn’t be impossible for the average player either. Rookie should be easy. HOF should be hard.

Exactly. I does feel like 19 all over again, especially without much update to the commentary or noticeable "over 200 new animations" ?... All I'm focusing on is how boring it is and every RP dropping his mitt when he comes to the mound. I want my money back.

i am RT'ing you simply because you are absolutely right and SDS needs to get this drilled into their skulls at this point they are botching it miserably so far

All I know is the timing window feels completely random. I’ve had many many swings there is a delay between my button push and what I see on screen.

Really hoping the three days of early access aren’t the most enjoyable of this release
