Communication from SDS

I feel like tons of outrage would be eliminated if we had communication from the studio about what’s currently happening in the game and if they plan to fix it and when. It’s clear from the forums that the community isn’t happy but the
Overall silence besides a tweet saying “we hear you” is really ineffective.. games thrive when there is open dialogue between the consumer and developer in my opinion. Wish we could hear more from them instead of leaving us to wonder

I agree but as a business they won't. This community is so toxic they would hold everything said against them if it wasn't done perfectly or possibly not be able to get done. Right now I just want them to address pitching and I'm happy.

Ditto. As a community, it is our obligation to hold them accountable. Honestly, the more communication they give, the better.

We would've had more communication, but there's that whole Tom Hanks Disease

Yes dude the randomness is killing me. How does a perfect 2seam fastball CUT IN 8 INCHES over the middle of the plate? I can handle getting beat if he hits my pitch right where I wanted it. That’s how it should be. Trying to figure out what the point of having a meter is at this point if doesn’t do anything.

Coronavirus affecting them to send a message from a device? I would think they are more technologically aware than that

You're shooting for the copyright, I know it. I'm on board with the renaming.

I don't think SDS has the time to read each and every post but since yours is at the top right now I think it would help if you elaborate on what you want them to address.

They're night and day between madden, trust me. They said they are aware of our feedback. Their entire city is in lockdown I believe and they're trying to work from home I think. Let's try to be patient.

Random pitching. A perfect pitch lands nowhere near intended. Balls just float over the heart of the plate . I hate listing cause the game places my pitches no where near intended. I get it sometimes happens but 90% of good releases end up so far away it’s just not even rewarding throwing a good pitch. Hitting is tougher but if they balance it out with actually skilled pitching that would be okay.

I don’t like complaining cause that’s all everyone does on here (me included) this is a place where everyone gets together to share their thoughts and I think it needs to be taken seriously considering the offer the ability to buy stubs. (Different point but tons spend money on the game outside of the initial purchase so we should be heard)

The disparity between the amount of results from a good/okay swing contact vs good/good is blowing my mind. More “okay” hits are landing and it’s very lame. Rewarding skill is apart of competition in my opinion

Not clear at all. By "community", do you mean the people who create posts on this board or do you mean the player base as a whole?

I'm quite confident that SDS defines it as the latter. If they see the behind-the-curtain metrics telling them people are playing less and less b/c of the patch, they'll revert lickety split. If the metrics don't change and it's just a few people airing their disgust on the boards, that's going to do literally nothing.

I see more people complaining and throwing shade than I do praising the recent updates. Is that fair? So the only feed back they should take in is through analytics of people playing the game?

Is staying silent the best response in your opinion? I want to atleast see if I’m the only person having the same issues, which I’m clearly not. Timing window, random pitching results. Stay Silent? I wasn’t disrespectful just airing some thoughts.

I’ll also die on the hill that’s it not hard to send a few tweets saying they recognize some issues with the patch. And if they don’t think there are issues then say so. It’s the zero communication besides the official twitter account just revealing clues about a new player. That’s all we really get. They need to learn from Fortnite and COD how to communicate with their players in my humble opinion

Never said you were disrespectful. Just, and I mean this with all due respect, irrelevant. Complaints on a message board don't mean diddly if the internal metrics say otherwise. The internal metrics DID say something was amiss earlier, which is why they pushed the patch to begin with.

They say it is in the users hand with user input, but that I guess is only for hitting, Pitching is bad, If it going to randomly throw to the middle of the plate they need to call the corners at a higher Rate in this game. Right now I might be getting 10 percent of corners called but I do not think it is even that high which forces walks and alot of balls lowering the pitchers energy and confidence and that usually when pitches start going all over the place no matter how perfect the release is where you want to throw the pitch.
