I am pretty sure they answered this somewhere by saying that all options options are available in h2h play.

Didn’t see it. I looked on that Twitter blog

SDS

I took it as implied since they have been given the opportunity to say if any input options weren't available and have every time answered that the one in question was. Yes, it would be nice to have a little more specificity, but the implication has been that all options are still in the game.

What I never understood is why it would matter, since all of the options you are asking about are not very competitive in h2h play and anyone using them is playing at a disadvantage.

I believe I answered you on this before. It’s the way I like to play. I don’t care if I’m at a disadvantage. I don’t like seeing all that junk on the screen. For me personally, it takes away from the game. Yes, I know I’m different, but I like to play games that are more grounded to reality. I don’t like games like call of duty. I like arma, squad, the old socom games, the old ghost recon games. It’s too bad they don’t make mil-sim shooters for the consoles anymore. It’s all fake arcade type stuff. That’s the reason I don’t like playing with the same settings as you or I’m guessing the majority of people on this form.

What is classic pitching? I assumed that it was the same as metered.

I can't imagine that they would out any features that made players less competitive.

You just press the pitch button and it’s accuracy depends on the player ratings

I don’t understand how they could allow directional or analog in competitive play. I think it should be mandatory to use zone or pure analog with stride.

Save the timing interfaces for offline play and casual.

That would obviously make the most sense

I get what you are saying but you also want to be competitive online and in my personal opinion that’s where I have a problem with it.

I think you should be able to play however you want but not in ranked seasons and battle Royale.

Why does it make the "most sense" when those options are clearly inferior to zone? Is it because you don't understand how they work? If people want to play directional online (personally I always use zone) and be at a disadvantage, let them it won't hurt you.

I am still not sure why people care. If you tell me that you are going to allow my opponents to use tools that give me an advantage then who am I to complain?

But the bottom line is how many people use it in the competitive modes. If those people are likely to spend money on stubs to chase cards to play a mode that they will be less competitive playing then I can't see SDS removing it.

Also, if SDS are tracking enough stats they might even have the data that shows where those who use directional finish in ranked seasons. If the vast majority of those players appear in the lower half of the ranked seasons divisions then they will not see an issue with it.

Yes, I will never understand why people get upset at other players for using inputs online that have more RNG.

If i understood the blog right all options will still be available just the pitches with PAR Feature will be more accurate based off of timing. Not 100% but that's how i understood it.

Batting is gonna be more user input driven in competitive as opposed to other modes.

It’s still competitive. If the game was truly a sim game you just wouldn’t be able to play above a cards capabilities like you can now. It’s just more realistic, not less competitive. I think you and others just like a certain play style that’s not realistic. Nothing wrong with that, just not my cup of tea.

Classic is what i used to use back in the day when pitch movement was determined by pitch type/ location and how long you held corresponding pitch button. For instance if you are facing strike zone from pitcher view each box within zone and directly opposite outside zone would represent a different movement and final destination for said pitch.

Meter is completely different it is based off of timing and where you line up the lines. But you can use the classic pitcthing location arrows with meter.

You're one of the very few that wants a full sim game.

But yes I assume you'll still be able to use directional and the like, which is AOK with me, I have 0 issues with players putting themselves at a disadvantage

Any time you add in the gamers skill with the controller or their reflexes into the equation then the stats are going to become less and less like a sim. I am not sure there is any way to allow player control in a competitive mode and keep the game in line with true simulation. When I bat only .200 with Mickey Mantle and someone else bats .400 plus with him then true simulation gameplay is out the window.

I wonder how Franchise players who play out their games deal with this conundrum. Seems like anytime you put someone on a controller that stats will become less realistic.

Perfect Team in Out of The Park Baseball on the PC is probably the closest that you will get to true simulation but of course you don't actually play those games. You set your lineup and strategies and then the games themselves are all simulated. It is basically that games version of Diamond Dynasty for the hardcore sim fans.

Some people can do that with any player in the game and I personally think it’s too far out there for my liking. Too arcade like.

So how do you limit them? Start giving them arbitrary outs when they reach some threshold? I just don't know how you compensate for user skill in a manner that is fair. Start letting the opponent get cheap hits when a pitchers era gets too low, or when they reach unrealistic strike out numbers?

It is an extremely slippery slope.

You can’t do it with their current engine and gameplay styles. The tech they use is too outdated for something that sophisticated. You wouldn’t be able to do it with that giant circle people use to hit with called zone either. Don’t worry, they will never make the game realistic, I am in the minority, I know that.
