Hitting Is Broken, Again

SDS

How is it I am losing Showdown moments, when 2/3rds of my hits are Good/Good or better....how is it Diamond Tino and Diamond Chipper hit perfect/perfect ground outs?

SDS, please bring it back to day one, scoring runs is fun and grinding showdown when its clear the game wants you to lose is a waste of time.

SDS

Showdown is a [censored] parade...avoid it, if you can.

Why shouldn’t perfect/perfect grounders sometimes result in groundouts?

Right? Gotta work on that launch angle bruh.

Sometimes? Try 90% of the time.

how is it perfect if it gets you out

Sometimes they should, more realistically, they should missed or be knocked down when it is hit to a fielder with bad fielding attributes. They may still pick it up and get you for the out, but perfects shouldnt always be fielded perfectly unless its a diamond defender.

Lol, you can still hit the ball perfectly with a bat but there is 9 people on the field to stop you from getting on. Just because you smoke a ball hard on the ground doesnt mean you should get a hit. Fielders are there to field the ball. Perfect balls in the game are just ones that have perfect swing and timing. Nothing says that they are always a hit. Line drives are better for hits and for the most part, fly balls are even better but ground balls will result in outs and double plays quite a bit no matter how well you hit it

SDS

I want to turn off my hit feedback. I find that it just bugs me and makes me mad the type of stuff I see.

I’m with that 100% but when they say perfect perfect batting average is over .800 before game release and showdown seems like it’s about .200, something is different

You can hit the ball on the screws and have it go right to someone. The ball doesn’t magically avoid fielders just because you hit it as hard as you can.

I’m obviously playing a different game than some of you. Fielders whiff or only knock down ground balls all the time when I play. CPU included.

SDS

Hitting is a joke, people stop defending this shitty game. That’s why the won’t fix it, because too many little Billy’s say the games fine. They only patched it because people were getting better xp for certain modes. Get real, if this is what cross platform gets, sds will be laughed at

Sometimes the ball magically takes a hard right turn into a fielder’s glove.

How is it? Does it help?

SDS

I have no reason to complain now. The feed back is broke, not hitting. Just go off the sound of the bat.

Also I start streaming by games, to get “real time” feedback.

This absolutely has to happen someday, at least make it an option.

The same reason your gun doesn’t misfire in call of duty?

And yes OP this showdown is whack. Doesn’t make sense to me for a company to sIt around and work on how they can make a game miserable but here we are.
