All of a sudden I can't hit...at all

SDS

I'm not the greatest hitter as it is, but now I cannot hit at all. I mean, I call 2 foul balls before a K a good at bat these days. Wtf.

SDS

Bro I'm right there with you. I'm a avg player and it's super hard to hit now.

SDS

It's kind of funny. Over the past two days I've been dying because of low and away sliders, and I've been constantly getting just underneath or just on top of balls, resulting in harmless outs. I definitely don't think it's the game, but I am in a funk.I even lost a showdown to Jack Morris, which I'm fairly certain isn't actually possible.

SDS

I am also in this boat. I just play this game casually, but out of nowhere, after hitting the ball square for weeks, the ball has just stopped coming off the bat with any oomph. Even with good players.

SDS

Same, I was scoring 4 or 6 runs a game on all star a week ago, now I'm lucky if I score one, maybe get 3for 4 hits.

SDS

Out of three games, two low struggling low offense games, the exception being a three run blast, small ball runs that chased the pitcher. Honestly common and bronze pitchers shouldn't play like diamonds, and diamond pitchers shouldnt give it up like a nube pitcher....just shouldn't but in the game it does

SDS

Yep, something is boned. I've been running bronze pitchers (SP & RP) in the event and going 2 innings or more.

On top of that, I notice everything you guys are saying.

I found switching to SZ3 view is helping to get at some of the low off-speed pitchers that I used to hit with ease, but it's different. I play on a monitor.

SDS

Before the patch I was batting 400 as a team. Since the patch it has dropped horribly. It’s a good okay parade. But my opponents good okays are home runs or base hits.

SDS

I’m having trouble hitting too. It just feels so off. Even worse than 2018 in my opinion.

It’s crazy because day 1 this game was rewarding.

SDS

Doesn't matter. I hit well and lose games to guys 2-1, when they hit bombs on "okay/early" or back to back doubles on "very early / rolled". Just play a lot and the game will reward you for your poor play.

SDS

Had to log on after reading all these comments.

Ditto on all of this. I can barely scrape together 5 hits in a 9 inning game anymore.

I strike out with Trout, ground out with Reggie, I’m not even excited when alomar or gleyber come up to bat anymore.

Oh and that stupid 89 Gallo card that I grinded 8 hours for...he’s hitting .089, how can you make contact with that [censored] vision?

Needless to say this game has been miserable to play the past few days. Just foul balls, Ks, and pitchers duels until someone is granted a good/early HR by the SDS gods.

I’m literally done with Zone hitting, nothing will make me go back. Even when I get perfect perfect it doesn’t seem to help so why bother trying to have my mind control 2 things at once.

I’ve heard decent things about analog hitting, so I’m gonna try it. Honestly it can’t be worse that zone for me and I figure at the very least, it will be more enjoyable since I can just focus on the timing of the pitch.

Any YouTube videos on analog hitting? Can’t find any.

SDS

I switched from SZ to Zoom hitting view and it helped a bit. Still though, it's a [censored] s--tshow these days

SDS

I get "Good/Okay" constantly on balls that are in the inside PCI. I'm starting to wonder what the PCI even means at this point. I assumed getting the ball inside the center PCI meant good contact. Apparently it does not. Which leads me to wonder what exactly qualifies as Good or Perfect contact if it's not getting the ball in the center ring.

SDS

Game plays like [censored]. Hard af to square up and when you do you get good okay feedback, pitches go wherever they feel like and diamond outfielders just let the ball smash them straight in the face. I’m close to saying 18 was better except I hated the content more than I’ve ever hated anything in my life.

SDS

I just scored 2 in an all star game against Ohtani. I have scored more than that in most of my event games.

SDS

I’m in the same boat. Can’t hit to save my life in RS (on HOF). The weird thing is that I’m hitting fine in Events.

Don’t you hate when the ball is the middle and it’s says okay contact ? Lol and when your pci is barely on the ball and it says good ? Hahaha

SDS

I still believe speeds were raised as well. The feedback isn’t making sense right now, most every swing is good okay no matter where I’m the pci the ball is. My online batting average has dropped from .340 to .270.

SDS

Patience is the key. Move the PCI less and look for meatballs down the middle. If you have to move the PCI as far as it will go you likely won’t be hitting the ball well anyway.

SDS

I'm starting to wonder if there's something going on with my connection. I was 8-3 and since then I've lost 7 straight. Back to regular season which I think should be on veteran, right? And I'm still getting blown away by fastballs. I dont know what's going on. I'm bad, but I'm not this bad.
