Pinpoint pitching worth it?

SDS

Am totally loving pinpoint. No issues with PS5, after a few hours of playing can nearly get perfect evrytime time and maybe it's in my head but seem to get more k's.

I hate using analog sticks for anything other than player movement in any game especially sports games. It's probably me being to impatient and just want to get on with throwing the pitch but I can't be bothered with it. I will say it's definitely the way to go however unlike last year analog pitching has been pretty good for me pitches go where you want them. Meter is now garbage however i'm not even on HoF yet i'm sure pinpoint will completely out do those 2 other methods if you can be bothered to use it.

I'd like to see the top YT creators use it.
I only used it for the trophy. I thought I'd like it, but back to Meter for me. Not worth practicing for hours tbh.

KevinGohd uses it and pretty good at it actually. I’m not a content creator at all but I use it pretty effectively. Once someone masters it, I think it’s going to be OP

It’s too much. It should have just been motion accuracy and timing. How fast you do the motion is a dumb thing to add into it.

The first motion is extremely forgiving. Its the timing down to the bottom circle that’s very important

I wish we didn't have to draw the pattern at a certain speed. If they slowed that down (not sure how especially in the stretch) I would probably use it. I want to use it but I have had good success with pure analog.

I retract my previous statements. I was simply making observations without even owning the game. I picked up the game yesterday and I love pinpoint pitching. It's tough but it's very realistic and rewarding. timing and pace are indeed way more important than accuracy.

Always been a meter pitcher. Slightly dabbled with analog last couple of years. Tried pinpoint from the jump this version and I just love it. It was weird at first but once you get the hang of it....ooh boy. I have probably had more pitches go where I actually wanted them to, so far since launch then I have the last 3 versions combined. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't mean you're invincible, but it sure beats the heck out of meter for sure. I hope they don't change a thing.

Same, except I skipped Analog completely...never liked it. Pinpoint pitching might be the best addition they've ever made to this game. I like having my pitches go where intended unless I really screw something up.

SDS

I tired it for a game and It seems like too many moving parts to deal with unless it’s mandated. I will admit I didn’t fully understand what was going on lol. Maybe they should run an event with that locked as the pitching to force everybody to try it and it could be real popular.

I’m surprised how many people use meter on this thread.

So does this mean stats don't matter if I use pinpoint? I like to play simulation and have the stats matter somewhat, but still have some control.

I think it matters in a sense that your PAR might fluctuate in size if I’m not mistaken

So far it's not amazing for me, although I don't have enough practice on it obviously. I guess we'll need more time to decide if it is, in fact, worth it. As of now I'm switching back to meter until I get more practice.

Anyone else's thoughts?

I’ve figured it out for the most part. It’s definitely more rewarding. I’ve also hung a bunch of pitches, no fault to the game though. Meter is the most difficult for me.

I only ever use pulse.
