This Game is 100% Scripted

SDS

This game is scripted or the devs are completely incompetent. Why are pitches with perfect input, full confidence, best pitchers in the game constantly hung right down the middle. Why is there so little correlation between good swing timings and pci placements with good outcomes. I could square up a ball with Finest Juan Soto and Its a flyout, but you can hit a very early homerun that isnt even in the pci. This game is zero fun to play. Somedays you feel really on with hitting but you dont get rewarded and it is demoralizing. The next day you might feel lost at the plate but you are getting bailed and still win on cheese. This game is designed for 10 year olds and it is an insult to the intelligence of the community.

Bro calm down ffs. If you only play to be competitive and not have fun then good. Leave. Stop whining to others please who believe this game is bad and if someone else likes it they're 10 years old.

I uninstalled, I was just giving my feedback to the devs and community because that is the whole purpose of this forum.

Sounds like you’re not having fun (zero is not a good amount). Could be time to give The Show the flick and play something else. Rocket League truly is a triumph of modern gaming. Have you played it?

K I came off a bit rude. But yeah take a break. Paladins, rocket league, fortnite, brawlhalla, cuphead, and 2k are all fun games for me while taking a break. (except fortnite lol)

I think people confuse the randomness of this game with scripting. This game is very RNG heavy, sometimes for you, sometimes against you, but I wouldn't exactly call it scripting.

Agreed.

If hitting a ball up the middle is "perfect", then being early should be a good thing. In real baseball, being early is good. Most homeruns are pulled. One of the most annoying things on this forum is ppl complaining about early swing outcomes. Early is good, perfect is good, late is usually bad. Just like irl. Yall are getting hung up on the word "perfect." If you have to be at work at 5:30, early is good, 5:30 is perfect, 5:31 is just late. You dont get punished for coming in at 5:25 lol

There is a definite rng component to the game, ie how batted balls are hit, exact pitch location, check swing %. I dont enjoy this rng component or think it is necessary, but I can overlook it. My issue it that the "randomness" is not random. Randomness is lacking predictability. When you go an entire 9 inning game getting weak exit velocities or line/flyouts on good/perfect contact, thats not random. When your opponent check swings 10 times in a game an doesnt get called for one and you get called for every one, thats not random. When you suddenly cant throw strikes, walk two batters and know (from experience) you are going to give up a 3 run shot, thats not random. There are quite a few people on these forums who also share my experience, thats not random.

This is entirely situational. Yes, being early on a pitch out over the plate or on the inner half will result in good outcomes, if you read the pitch well and turned on it, not if your were fooled or defending the zone. Being early on a breaking ball outside should not be rewarded more-so than sitting back on it and driving it up the middle or to the opposite field.

True, but I dont see that happen in game a lot (being fooled and getting an early swing home run). The only example of this that I see with any regularity is a cutter breaking in on a hitter that is mistaken for a fastball in and roped down the line for a HR. Pulled offspeed pitches on the outside part of the plate result in very low exit velocities (at least in the games I've been a part of). Which leads me to believe the early HRs people complain about are fastballs that were absolutely ambushed.

I dont really have a big issue with early hits, although guys like trout still demolish early away breaking pitches. My issue is more with late side of good being almost a guaranteed lineout. Its not realistic, guys like gwynn and lamahieu could flourish.

Yeah, I mean you could argue that letting the ball travel deeper in the zone, staying inside it and going the other way with an outside pitch could also be “perfect” timing OR “late” timing. It’s always felt a bit wrong to me to call “late” a bad thing, when there is no other way to hit oppo. Maybe it’s just semantics.

I entirely agree with you, i think this is where a lot of the disagreement comes from. Being "early" on an inside fastball or "late" on an outside breaking ball could technically be considered perfect timing. Especially when your thinking about situational hitting.

Not to be rude, but have you played competitive ball before? Early is not good...for the most part. IRL, early on an outside pitch is a weak flyball. Early on an inside pitch is foul, unless you keep your hands inside the baseball. Late on an inside swing (watch Jeter) could create a lot of singles/doubles with good barrel placement. So yes, people have a reason to complain about the % of hits being created with a very early/early swing.

SDS

Yeah, I played in HS. I get that pulling outside pitches isn't ideal. But, since I dont see a lot of good exit velocities on that type of input, I dont think that is what everyone is complaining about. They are complaining about people pulling fastballs that are middle-in or up and in.
