I agree 100%. Every year I pray they don’t change the hitting at launch because the games are so fun for the first week or two but like clockwork, every year right after launch the hitting gets ruined. You’re right about it being less fun. It’s not like the game is not fun overall, but it’s so much more enjoyable before they do this EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Love you SDS, but please stop doing this lol.
Man, I feel you. I don’t know if it’s because of where I live or what but I know what it feels like to be on each side of the algorithm in their software that decides which person is allowed to hit home runs and who isn’t. The algorithm that decides who gets a significant advantage over the other player to the point where I think that I’m experiencing a completely different game on my end. It definitely exists and I don’t know where down the line my IP got flagged as one of the ones that has that “BS Switch” turned on permanently against them...but here I sit, hoping that I’ll one day get to experience the version of MLB The Show online that I enjoyed so much during the first 2 weeks of this game’s lifecycle. Not only did they F the gameplay into oblivion with that first hitting patch, but I don’t think I will ever be on a level playing field with my opponents again. I just wish someone on the development side would see my IP and realize they forgot to turn that “permanent disadvantage” switch off. I just pray this game comes to PC so I can hopefully build one with enough hardware power to offset their BS algorithm that has made this game so frustrating.
I can tell you bronze Gary Sheffield is the best third baseman in the game.
