Stuck in the 600s RS

SDS

Hey all-

I've been playing since launch and my overall record in RS is something like 109-129 (maybe a couple of games off). I started off really terrible and for the first month or so I was getting stuck between 400-500. I started getting better at hitting All Star (developed a new hitting strategy, and got used to same pitchers and got good ideas what they were going to throw in certain counts) and made it to 600 a couple weeks ago, and a couple days ago I hit 737, which is my max. But since then I lost like 4 games in a row, and now I'm winning one and losing one over and over again. If I throw Kluber and the other player has anyone but Kluber I win 90% of those games. If the other guy has Kluber and knows how to pitch (which in 600s they all seem to) I lose like 90% of those games. If neither of us is using Kluber its usually a high scoring close game.
I struggle so mightily with sinkers because no matter how many times I tell my mind to look for it and swing earlier, I read it like an offspeed and swing way too late. How do you guys hit sinkers / see sinkers consistently? Does my vision just suck?

Basically, I want to make World Series and earn that Dustin May card. Am I hopeless? Or can someone point me in the right direction for success in hitting better?

Curious on the response to this one. I’m currently in CS and hate every time I see Kluber because I struggle with the sinker. Worst part is that up here you’d be lucky to see anyone but Kluber. The sinker in this game is such an unrealistic pitch and I can’t wrap my head around it. The high sinker is literally impossible lol

if you play on a tv get a monitor you will be much better.. if you already play on a monitor just keep playing and playing and you will become better

High sinkers are overpowered and unrealistic. You gotta sit fastball, not offspeed. The gap between 800-900 this year is beyond frustrating. Win three, lose two. Win one, lose three. It's like each game allows different results (exit velos, contact, pitching speeds, hanging pitches, lineouts). The game is so inconsistent in ranked seasons and that should be their polished mode in diamond dynasty. Good luck.

seems like you got into the 700s and started playing HOF. big jump up from allstar and you struggled. I'd say your hopeless. in the 800s you dont gain as many points so need to hit a good winning streak

No one says the show has the best fan base. If that was the case, this world is doomed.
