Some Minor Points

SDS

I know it’s early, but here are some minor issues I’ve noticed. Other than these, the game has been playing amazingly. I did submit this to support, but wondering if people’s can help with some of these. Thanks.

GAME PLAY ISSUES
Check swings - this sounds like an ongoing issue carried over from 20. It’s impossible to not get called for a strike on any check swing, even just a flinch.

High sinkers - this is still a thing? This was an issue back in 19 and hard to believe it hasn’t been addressed.

High inside - it’s a location that is near impossible to reach as a hitter IRL. The amount of homers being cracked off this spot is unrealistic, even Vasgersian says so many times during a game.

Shifts - Please tone down the shifts, I’m guessing this is based on real life stats, but it’s really crazy the amount of players that have a shift placed against them. Besides, just because IRL a player may have a pull tendency, doesn’t mean my controller reaction time isn’t different. I’m tired of shifts taking away my good/perfect timing up the middle. Also, for online games, can we default shifts as off and force players to change the menu option?

CPU Outfielders - are they all Golden glovers? Way too many diving catches and HR’s robbed

Pickoffs - the in game success rate of pickoffs (both online and offline) has to be way higher than real life. Tracked the last days worth and it was 50% successful pickoffs, no way that’s realistic.

Throw Cancel - doesn’t seem to be working unless I’m missing something else. I used to be able to restart my throw meter accuracy if I made a mistake and had time to correct the pre-loaded throw.

QOL ISSUES
Intro announcer - Every game has the same intro stating the goal is to look for pitches up, seems like every SP is a sinker/change up pitcher.

Lagging in market and inv - when in the market, it seems there is a lot of lag. It takes 5-6 secs to select or cancel things. Same thing when in My Inventory menus.

Broadcast Theme Style option - why is “The Show Theme” the only option?

Moments - It is beyond annoying when I finish a moment and get placed all the way back at the main DD menu. Please get this fixed.

Player stats in game - I used to be able to tap left or right and get a view of current batter, on deck, and IHL batters hitting attributes as well as speed. Now, sometimes it’ll show while holding R2, and most times it doesn’t. Only consistent way is through the pause menu. This can’t be the most effective method. Am I missing something or did this get taken away?

Strike zone view w/analog pitch - For pitching, I use Analog with Strike-zone camera. In years past, no issues with this view. This year, a lot of times the Strike Zone box is now crossing into my meter and causes some distraction. Is there an adjustment I can make or do I just need to accept this and adjust?

Conquest sim - Inhave PS5 and while everything loads lightening quick, it still takes way too much time to simulate games in Conquest. I spent 3 hours playing the East Affinity Map and spent more than half that time simulating tiles. At this pace, I have very little interest in doing the full map, would probably take a week or more to get done. Hopefully something can be done to speed this up.

No after game conquest reward - I know it’s been stated in other threads, but this is more than just a little annoyance. For many of us, we relied heavily on the after game rewards in conquest. It wasn’t much, but added up and helped to offset some of the expense of the collections. Hopefully this is just a bug and gets fixed soon. If not, need to evaluate alternatives, and if this is permanent, it really should have been mentioned somewhere prior to release.

I haven’t ventured into conquest yet. I kinda loathe having to play it. Are there still random packs given throughout conquest like last year? They were pretty generous With the rewards.

SDS

The two conquest maps I have completed have included show packs, one had a ballin pack, but it doesn’t seem like as many as in the past.

No post game rewards after spending time to play is annoying, but there are so many collection rewards and other options I am not going to complain about that.

SDS

On the check swing point, They are opposite of last year. Last year they never got called. I think They went a hair too fair the other way with check swings but I would much rather them get called every time than not at all

Depends on the map, but most have had some decent hidden rewards
