Monitor Difference

I bought a 27' MSI monitor a few weeks ago. The biggest difference I've seen so far is the ability to recognize pitches better. I have a 1MS response time, and my refresh rate is 165. I don't have the lag that I had on my TV. (at least not as often) I still suck, but that's because I suck playing H2H, but I've noticed I've been playing better since I got the monitor.

165hz is irrelevant when you play on console though because it's locked at 60hz.

I use to play in a 55 inch tv , it was a problem for me because the light would hurt my eyes and I couldn’t focus much, once I switched to my PC monitor I’ve consider my self Sammy Sosa cause I been hitting bombs lately, it definitely helped me out.

Will it help me win showdown every time?

i couldn't win a single showdown on tv.. got a monitor and since then not one showdown i didn't win.. but i could never go to the final boss right away

I was being sarcastic, but that's good to know. I hope it helps as I'm way behind on affinity.

Are there any changes to settings I need to make out of the box? What changes will I notice? Will I be way early on everything? How long does it take to adjust?

when i switched to monitor i was too early on everything for quite a bit.. took me 2 days to get my timing down

Believe it or not ive had a hard time adjusting to a monitor, pitches come in so slowly sometimes i end up early as hell or memorized thinking i have more time than i do and end up late cuz im not actually used to seeing the ball so clearly lol.

How much was your monitor? Im looking into buying the state of the art apple laptop worth $2000 so i can make world series.

Same here. I'm hitting quite a bit better but now my pitching timing is all jacked. I'm hanging pitches left and right!

Well the biggest difference is input lag. But depending on how old your tv was/is, those specs between the two can be pretty close. Most monitors have about 8-10ms of input lag while newer tv’s in game mode can be 15-20ms. I think having a smaller screen can be helpful by having you focus more on the incoming pitch.

Newer TVs in game mode are approx 9-10ms... Got a 65" LG at Target for $700 last year and its just under 10ms. Buddies of mine have picked up other similar input lag TVs.

A good monitor is <1ms.

Unless you are streaming on twitch making money playing this game it baffles me so many of you sacrifice playing on a tv, chillin back to sit 2 feet away from a monitor. To each their own

It is a huge difference when seeing the ball come in but don't buy the monitor thinking that you will all the sudden become a hitting god. You can track the curve of the ball and path of the ball better but you will still need the timing and placement of the PCI to be good.

So if I got a monitor I would just be able to smash my PCI to the bottom of the strike zone on a pitch down the middle even faster!?!? haha

I won't get a monitor because I hate how basic online gameplay (allstar) is forcing people to upgrade technology just to catch up to a fastball.

Well said. I bought a monitor for the exact reason you mentioned. I find that I’m definitely better playing in events, but a monitor doesn’t help in ranked when, randomly, the pitch speeds can reach 1000mph. The thought is the connection between opponents with different internet speeds is the reason for this. What’s weird is that I hit just fine in ranked even up to hall fame last year playing on a tv, but this year, from time to time, I can’t even sniff the ball on all star. And that’s using a monitor.

Appreciate the tips here. I changed some things up and it's crazy how much better I can hit now. WOuldn't think something could affect the game experience so much.

What did you change up? Still working on adapting myself. I’m early on everything and these moments today with the slow pitchers are driving me crazy.

I didn’t change any settings other than going full RGB mode on the PS4

SDS

I got a monitor tonight. And it's insane how slow the pitches are coming in on showdown. Fastballs look like change ups, and curves look like knuckle balls. I assume it's not like that on RS. Haven't tried it yet

No monitor has input lag specs that low. You are confusing it with response time. That is usually 1ms or slightly higher depending on the monitor panel.

This is correct, response time is a marketing term and the true input lag of these 1ms response time monitors is somewhere between 10-15ms.

Ha! Look at that! My bad!
