If you do number 1, you alienate a big portion of the players that simply can't hit fastballs at that speed. Not going to happen ever unless SDS wants to go out of business.
Game needs ping indicators and ping based match making for a level playing field.
I see you posting a lot about ping on these forums. I just recently upgraded my Comcast internet from 250 mbps to 600 mbps. I hardwire my PS4 and I do not get anywhere near 600 Mbps. Other electronics in my house get higher mbps on the Ookla speed test through Wi-Fi and I was told that PS4 just can't carry the load of 600. What is considered a good ping for video games? Is there a better way to check your ping and speed on your PS4? I go through the browser and go to speedtest.net . I also go to settings and test internet connection under Network on the PS4 console and that seems to be slower than speedtest.net . I get a ping anywhere from 10 to 30 ms and a download speed anywhere from 100 to 300 mbps and upload soeed between 6 and 30mbps n the ps4. I don't notice lag in any other game except for the show. Is it my internet or is it their servers? Last question, do you get slower connection speeds at different times of the day? It seems like I get faster speeds at 2 in the afternoon then I do at 10 at night which would make sense if we are talking about the amount of players on the server at one given time. Sorry for the long post but you seem to know what you are talkin about.
edit: just got home and went through the PS4 settings, network, test internet connection. I got 316 mbps download and 9 upload.
Most of what I put on here is pure speculation because I do not know the details of what SDS does. I do know that ping based match making would make a smoother experience for everyone instead of the people lucky enough to be in that sweet spot whatever that is. The speculation is from a lot of research and what happens in other games. Games like PUBG, I typically have sub 30 ping to their servers in both Ohio and Texas which is excellent. I also know that even on that game my squad mate with 90 ping had better results than I do. Yes, he was better but he could sponge bullets and put people down instantly. Me, I died when someone looked at me. I could be completely wrong on The Show and my ping could be 100 and opponents are 30 but very doubtful based on my ping and indicators in other games. I suspect it is better to have 150 ping instead of 30 or 250.
Pretty sure the PS throttles upload and download speed. I have gig internet and usually don't get much on the PS. More than likely your slower speed at night is probably due to traffic on the internet.
