Needs to happen

I think it's time to move on. Taking your anger out on pixels on a screen is not healthy
Disagree. Things are only beginning for Houston.
Pitcher/catcher chemistry. Have positive effects on location, k/9, h/9, blocking, pick offs. Negatives as well, more you use a pitcher/catcher combination the better the chemistry becomes. This would force the use of multiple catchers and make it more like MLB where specific pitchers only throw to specific catchers.

Good. Hit 10 more. He's easy as [censored] to hit.
Yea cause i had 3 batters to work with lol? Doesn't change the fact he's glitchy, if the kind of player has to use him to win then that player isn't that good at pitching.
Except he only loses.
Yes they did. This patch or last patch and look at other threads. There are more complaints than mine
Last patch. Patch 1.04.
Wasn’t last patch just an adjustment to the pitch speed slider? That’s how I interpreted it and that’s not a DD change.
That would essentially make fastballs seem faster though if the speed ratio is greater.
“Pitch speed slider has more range” doesn’t sound like a universal change to me. That sounds like they added the option for those who play offline to make pitch speeds more realistic if they desire to.
It was a universal change but imo they didn't change the fastball speed. They added greater gap of fastball timing and offspeed timing to create more strikeouts. Timing window decreased for fastballs while remaining the same for offspeed.
If you never played the show prior to 18 and 19 then you have nothing to compare it to. The last two years were a joke pitch speed wise. Everybody could pick up a controller and not be late on a fastball but still wait on off speed. Pitch speeds are completely fine, if you can't catch up to a fastball it is a skill issue.
This man is right. 18s pitch speeds were laughably slow. Believe someone did a comparison from 17 to 18 of Aroldis Chapmans 4sm. 99 mph in 17, 99 mph in 18. However when split frame by frame they found out that in 18 Chapmans 99 mph 4sm was the equivalent of an 88 mph 4sm from 17 frame by frame.
As someone who's played MLB the show for 8+ years, I'd hardly call this the worst version ever. SDS has continually made improvements to the franchise over the past few years. I'd agree the game could use some tweaking and a patch, but you're blowing this way out of proportion and being overly dramatic. It's not that bad
18 was the worst version ever
