Anyone else having a hard time hitting?

SDS

Never had a worse stretch than right now. Hitting is difficult. In 700 and above and even in all star. You’ll still have fluky games where your team goes off. But for the most part, hitting feels terrible. And the games where I’m having good input, seem like the ball goes right to someone or I don’t get rewarded for it.

I hate to be that guy, but it does almost seem like you’re playing against a predetermined outcome.

SDS

On all-star no, still mashing. HoF yes.

SDS

I just had two innings where every ball I hit I had the PCI placed perfect. They were all long fly balls and said good/okay.

I can’t take this man.

Lol right I just rage quit due to this and then the other guy proceeds to hit weak grounders and flares over my infield combined with an error on a gold CF and an umpire that had pis poor vision

this but for me it's balls deflected off the fielder. this is just an estimate,and I don't know the RL numbers, but I've already had more deflected balls than 2 seasons worth of all 30 mlb teams
Enough already.

SDS

Glad I'm not the only one. I played against the CPU on All-Star using the Rangers for innings to get FOTF Gallo, and I would get PERFECT/PERFECT or GOOD/GOOD and it was either a line out or grounder. All the other hits I would have good PCI placement and foul off/out or swing and miss. I think the 1.04 and 1.05 updates really messed up the hitting. I was never this bad before.

2 days ago I was mashing. Now I'm lucky if I score a run before the 3rd inning in an event game

Same here.

SDS

Nope, I went directional....all I have to do is sit back, one hand on the controller, sipping on some fresh coffee, watching a movie and wait for the game to hang my opponents pitches for me to crush with the push of one button. I get PLENTY of easy pitches served up to me.

The more I think about it, I’m loving this edition of “The Little Billy Show”.

SDS

I haven't made it to HOF yet but I honestly haven't had a problem on AS. Granted Im at 590 after starting RS 2 weeks late but I haven’t faced Kluber or Newhouser in ranked yet. I couldnt hit my last game because my opponent decided to use the ol Chris Sale at Oracle park with white jerseys during the day cheese, but I still won somehow. Should reach HOF difficulty tomorrow or the day after though so I can give a better opinion then

Hall of fame is a hugeeeeee step up from all star this year. It’s not like years past. The difficulty jump makes no sense this year.

SDS

If the game rewarded true skill I wouldn’t be having a hard time

SDS

Everyone can agree that it is garbage. Reward the goods players again.

SDS

Wish we had the game we got to play at launch right now

SDS

It's the same old song and dance as last year. Good squared ups are lineouts and warning track fly outs while late timing and weak contact ends up in blooper singles. Outfielders misplay fly balls and hit them in the face, infielders bobble balls when it really counts especially with diamond Fielding. Pitching input means absolutely nothing on meter and analog. All they did was tweaked the game for early launch and let us have a weekend full of fun. Once the game became public for everybody they patched it back to last year's game. Year after year they fool us with shiny new cards. This game is going to be a shitshow when it is on all platforms. This company cannot even handle one platform now they will have multiple it is going to be a terrible experience and one that I probably won't come back to.

SDS

Played an event game like an hour ago and had about 15 good/good good/squared up and perfect/groundball feedback. All were outs. Game goes into the 4th inning tied he hits 3 straight home runs off of my pitchers lol. This game pisses me off a lot haha.

At launch everyone on ranked season was playing at a lower level

You and me both brother. At this point I actually despise the game, don't want to hit with Directional and can't stand to see Little Billy playing outfield and watch a ball land right in front of him. So let me ask you if you were a company that sold a million copies of a product and it was liked by the masses say 900,000 people and disliked by 100,000 people. As a business man who would you cater for continued business and more success? I think I would cater to the 90% who praised me wouldn't you? If the stiffs are so good that they are in WS every season/year won't they be there anyway? So why do the rest of anti geeks have to suffer playing a game we love too? I say take of care us masses. We are the ones that are going to spend on microtransactions because we are playing a game that fun not broken all to he// after two weeks. Sorry for the rant but I currently DGAF.....we will monitor....monitor your screw up fellas

This. Hitting is not as fun as when it first came out. My solid hits are not being rewarded but my opponents weak contacts are spraying for hits. I’m always facing 99 Kluber high sinkers against my Oswalt. Then my pitcher with solid command and perfect/perfect input is constantly hanging up meatballs for bombs.

It’s just not fun anymore so I’ve been taking my quarantine time over to COD Warzone until they fix it.

SDS

I’m legit having more trouble since patch 1.05 than I ever have with this game. I’m either in the worst slump of my history with this game, or something is off.

Even if I get good placement and timing, it’s still coming back good/okay.

Hitting has never felt worse than right now. I always thought 2018 was the worst hitting experience with the Show, but this is worse than that.

How can a game that had people so excited at launch become so bad...

Fix this SDS. Don’t even feel like playing anymore.
