With everything that's going on right now, this game couldn't have come out at a better time. Sure, there are issues with it, but it sure is nice to have the distraction of playing a fun game and taking your mind off what is going on in the world for a while.
That being said, in my personal opinion the hitting is great at launch. I'm offline only, so I can't speak to online at all, but for me it's been just right. Please don't change it!!!
