I used to frequently post, but haven’t been around here much at all lately. I have played this game a lot the past few years. There have been several times I’ve decided to quit the game, only to come back later because honestly the game can be addicting. Each year , I have been hopeful that the gameplay will improve. However, every year there are glaring issues that ruin gameplay, especially with the hitting.
These issues have stemmed from mlb 17 when ball physics was added. The obvious hitting issues from each year are:
17- late hits
18- extremely slow pitch speeds, early hits rewarded too much, balls in middle of pci resulting in pop ups
19- lineouts, bad exit velos on perfect pci
20- good/okay and good/good on perfect pci
Each year, I lose enthusiasm to play. And I’m at the end of the line here. The game just frustrates me too much, it’s not worth playing imo.
I have met a lot of cool people in this community and on here, which I am thankful for. Ik a lot of people don’t like these posts about people announcing their departure, so I’m sorry if you’re one of those people. Since I’ve been on here a lot in the past, I wanted to let everyone know what’s going on and why I won’t be here anymore. I wish everyone the best.
I might be back some day if SDS manages to fix the issues and improve the game, which I doubt will ever happen, but until then, so long.
