I'll give it to you guys who use zone hitting and have figured it out. Im terrible and just can't quite get it.
I've tried everything and nothing seems to work. Been doing zone about a year and still stuck doing the same old [censored]. I wish I could see a video of somebody who was terrible and improved significantly and how they did it. Watching the youtubers is fine but they are good so that doesn't translate to me, since I suck and can't seem to get better.
Try practicing on LEGEND. It's really the only way. The PCI is tiny and you catch up to the speed of the game. Hitting is about timing like in RL. (After this, hitting will slow down in other difficulties.)
Another thing that has helped me a lot: like a hitter in RL, accept the holes in your swing. I can't hit same-side high and tight stuff, so I lay off. Inside on same/same match ups are off limits and I crush everything middle/away.
Lastly, do not, under any circumstance unless it is a meatball to a good hitter, swing at the first pitch. The math is waaayyy in the favor of the pitcher on the first pitch unless you have the "teacup" and , even then, just be patient. Counts factor in heavily to the outcomes in this game.
