This might be an unpopular opinion on this forum given the amount of showdown complaints on here, but I believe it to be true.
The pitch speeds on veteran are too slow and make it gruesome when adjusting back to online play. Hit outcomes seem so much more random on veteran in showdown than they do on all-star. The biggest complaint I have is that the pci doesn’t move to every spot in the strike zone, limiting the amount of balls you can actually square up, while CPU pitchers paint the black.
Please SDS, give us the option to play showdown on all-star instead of veteran, or at the very least, allow the pci to move just as much as it can on all-star.
