Fastballs are too quick.

Pitch speeds seem slower on all star than 19..

I thought pitch speeds were slower than 19? Does anyone know if pitch speeds are the same as 2019 right now?

I sure thought so too. Nolan Ryan was great on allstar for a minute there until people adjusted.

Its because they are slower. Anyone saying otherwise doesn't have a clue

Sorry but they are faster. It's not even close lol.

Before 1.4 I was 14-6 and after am 8-12. Half the losses were due to the window timing for fastballs. At least half my wins were games I just got lucky and ran into one thrown down the middle and won 1-0 or 2-1.

Ah yes, but none of them compare to the seemingly 200mph beach balls that whizzed past in ‘18

When SDS listen to people like the OP, we get the $hitshow of the last couple of years.

If you are only winning half your games, there's a reason for it. If the fastball is too fast for you, good.

I'm not elite and have never made WS. There is a reason for that. I need to git gud.

OP might need to readjust his own expectations and put his abilities into perspective.

I dont expect to get to ws. I'm very happy to make championship. I think I did 4 times last year. But at least I was competitive and felt like I could halfway get the fastball and adjust to the breaking ball but now it's either sell out for the fastball or guess offspeed and have little to no chance. Yes theres a reason for that... it's because they changed the mechanics of the game. My skill is at least as good as last year but that reaction window should be on hall of fame not all star. All star is the 3rd of five tiers. Middle of the road. Average. So slightly above average players should be able to compete on that level. And that is not how it is right now.

Did you ever stop to think for some of that first 14-6 run you were playing on veteran? Or you’re playing better players now? Did that cross your mind at all?

The speeds are spot on now. Dont mean to be cliché but u just have to get better. Like others said... look fastball and adjust off speed.

Yes. Believe me I know when I'm overmatched in a game. I also know when it's been changed. I do look fastball. Always have. The game speed was fine before the patch and non elite players had a chance and could have fun. And I also know more players are at me level than yours if the rumors are true. The top levels of the game should cater to the elite players in the game. Not the middle of the road like probably most players are. It makes the game more appealing to a wider audience and will get people like me to spend money on packs. But I and a lot of others I would guess too will not spend any more money on a product that feels broken to them.

Cant believe they made it even harder to hit. Fast balls are unreal. I have to guess to have any chance to hit. They need to fix. Game is no fun right now in DD.

Takes practice, bubba. Hit the batting cage and quit calling for constant changes. The game is buggy enough already.

First change I've ever called for. Played over 1000 games last year and almost 150 this year. The game was better hitting wise before 1.4

Have you been living under a rock?

No I just haven't had a strong enough negative opinion about the game that I felt it was necessary to speak up. And yes I have a life. Lol

Pitch speeds are fine. Its the timing window that is messed up

Whatever. Its messed up and that's what I'm trying to get changed

I refuse to believe this isn’t a troll thread.

@daelon11 said in Fastballs are too quick.:

No way. I played over 1000 games in dd last year and ended about 25 games over .500. They were fine in first week or so but its definitely changed now.

Agree with you
