Zone Vs. Directional

Zone is unusable as of now vs cpu. Currently catching up on POTM missions and I’m on Anderson 17bases. Tried it 6 times all three games with zone. First two games I finish it with directional, it shouldn’t be like that. And I was get (good, okay) with nearly perfect pci placement.

Glad to know I am not the only one. 500 hours already played this year and I am hitting worse now than I did 2 weeks ago. I just failed 1st boss on Showdown again. I think any time I've beaten a Showdown, I just got lucky. At least with moments you can keep restarting.

I am done with Showdowns, looks like if I want to get past stage 1 its innings, and man it's a ton of innings.

Exchanges are awful, 12k for 20 points.

“Zone is unusable as of now vs cpu” is perhaps the hyperbolic statement of the week.

Or, you just need to hit better.

Zone works perfectly fine vs the cpu, as it always has.

You do not understand how many perfect perfect or “good okay” fly outs or ground balls I have gotten. My thing is if I get perfect perfect or good good, I should be rewarded, but I should not be rewarded if I get early okay and it’s a no doubt homerun, you tell me how tf that makes sense. There is not “hitting better” when I get next to near perfect pci placement and timing you [censored] idiot.

The usual "get good" comment!

I wear a plaid mini skirt when I play ranked because I like to feel naughty;)

SDS

Did it just fine using zone. I do everything with zone, because directional is relying more on rng to help you

SDS

If zone is literally "unusable" against the cpu, why did I win the only showdown I played today? "Unusable" means under no circumstances should I have been able to, yet I did

Really? I did that challenge my first try. Although it did help that I hit two home runs in game 1.

Maybe cause the dice rolled in your favor and not for him. He said he was getting good hits but the game didn’t give it to him.

I also did it first try after 2 bombs in 1st game....

For TC, are you looking for advice on how to use zone effectively vs cpu? Or was the post more to left off frustration.

You can square up every single pitch and still be at the mercy of the rng hitting. Yes it’s better than directional but it’s far from perfect. Perfect means your getting rewarded with every solid hit. That simply does not happen in this game.

Wouldn't that mean it's not "unusable" if the dice goes your way though? Unusable means unusable, as in does not work at all. Not "Well it does work sometimes if the game is in your favor"

Unusable isn't the right word to use.

You shouldn’t get rewarded for every solid hit.

Zone is definitely useable but still at the mercy of the rng.

Why not?

Ever watched baseball before?

Should solid contact be rewarded much, much more than bad contact? Absolutely

Should you get a hit every time you make solid contact? Absolutely not.
