So I have been on a tear lately, I came a game shy of ws last season and was thriving with hof speeds and pci. When the season restarted I lost the first game, set back to all-star difficulty. I’ve been stuck in 6-700 range give or take a few points. Being frustrated with the fielding I decided to focus on the event for a while. I have been destroying it in the event, against lots of elite players. I got to a point where I’m having 5-10 perfect perfects a game , multiple hr’s an inning. I finally got the all-star timing down. I played a couple games in ranked again as I was seeing the ball so well won two in a row and got up to 730ish, my last game was finally on hof again, the first since last season. Now after spending so much time playing the event, and in all-star difficulty my timing is out of sorts.
I think pitch speeds should be universal, all-star, hof, a mixture of both? The only thing that should change is the pci size. When people are playing baseball a 95mph fastball isn’t 85 or 105 depending on if they are in aa,aaa, or the bigs. They learn timing and then they lock in. Maybe have veteran for the first couple ranks like spring training and regular season , and legend for ws and above but can we get the meat to just have the same timing windows? Same for events, they should be uniform to what the meat of ranked season is playing in. It’s fairly difficult to learn the timing as is but to have to go back and forth is really counterproductive to excel in the game.
You already have to adjust to what a 100mph FB timing is , a 95 sink or a 75 curve etc, etc. but when you jump a rank and 100 feels like 120 and so on it makes things really weird. It’s tough for someone like me who has been kind of stuck fluctuating around the difficulty thresholds and you get game to game variation.
Just my 2c on a way the gaming experience could be improved from my end. Anyone agree or disagree and why - thanks
