Why directional is trash for online...

SDS

Because they reward xp for hits and hrs etc...when it takes 0 skill to hit with this bullsh*t online and rewards garbage user play. Which then gives them more xp to be more garbage online. Hits where pci doesnt even reach..hrs off balls in dirt...its a freaking joke. Turn off that for online for 1000th time and for 4yrs running. Its a joke. This isnt rbi baseball.

SDS

Inagine losing to someone using directional lmao

That would only mean the RNG got the best of you...lol

SDS

Ya 0-2 waste pitches that get hit for hrs cuz they timed it perfectly even tho its 2 ft out of zone...or throwing fbs up and in all game and cant hit it then 0-2 throw one on outside down and away and they hit it?? Yup ok...its a joke. This game rewards ppl who dont even aim to hit.

Do you play COD with autoaim on???

SDS

Link a video of it happening to you. I call BS, sorry not sorry

Why U crying , I hit balls off the plate for bombs with pci. It’s the games physics not directional

And yes it is trash regardless of hot input

SDS

I see this post every year, gotta love it.

SDS

Or every time they make contact its a hr?? Not even perfrct timing. The game caters to upper cut power swings...its honesly ridiculous how many hrs and fly balls are hit off balls in dirt...cuz lets allow uppercut swings to be effective in any situation. Not to mention the no aiming and letting cpu aim for ya. Its a god [censored] joke of a game..they dont fix [censored] ever. Pulling low and outside sliders for hits. Directional gets more cheap hits as well. .

Why play a game when you let the cpu do half the work for you? Online should be zone only....

I think you need to take into consideration at what difficulty you are playing at. At rookie and veteran directional is pretty good. Then at all-star it gets tougher and then at hof and legend its super hard to hit with directional.

Switching to directional online later today. Thanks for the tip

SDS

If directional was such a huge advantage some people make it out to be, everyone would be using it. This comes up every year like clockwork. Stop making excuses that you lost and move on. If you are using zone, you have every advantage to hitting, low, high, outside, inside, dirt... zone outhits directional in every single situation unless you don't place the pci well.

SDS

So if directional is such trash, and zone hitting so perfect, explain the pci user who pulled a slider that was 2 feet outside, pretty much in the other batters box, and a again I say PULLED, for a 500ft homerun with a 50 power guy against me...yup directional is trash and unrealistic and zone is perfect and realistic....lmao

What difficulty was hitting in? (Rookie, Veteran, HOF?)

SDS

Veteran at the time, I believe...I am with you though about the dificulty level being a factor, I was just pointing out that on the whole his argument is rediculous.

SDS

Directional hitting for online competitive is trash … facing the dodgers/yankees and all a person has to do is mash sqaure … it’s annoying

SDS

Played 1 online game, non DD, with direction hitting. Lost 2-0. I made an error in the outfield(unofficial), and a base running blunder. Seems fair to me.

SDS

As a directional offline player I struggle to hit on all star and above. If took me 3 tries to beat Baltimore on all star, lol

Directional (?))
Ya mean, what I refer to as -
" toddler TEE Ball " !

It's a skilless joke and is the epitome of what ruins this game for grown folks, those who actually played ball and/or the true fans.

There needs to be isolation toggles just like there are for "guess pitch", difficulty and the other choices prior to an online game search.
{I've said this for years and years now btw}

I play authentic ball as in a chess match, but get matched up with a puppy who plays Chinese checkers and even has extra marbles !!
2 different games and has no business at the same table ( on the same screen ) together.
They have no foul balls and practically no base runners even....just skilless and ridiculous square button mashing home run derby's.

The " fools gold " of it all is they claim to be good, sit in the leaderboards, and some how THINK they are actually playing the game.
Not hardly.
Starting an approximate timing window and
then letting attributes and algorithms do all the work....
That's not " playing " by definition of the word in the slightest.
It's nothing more than
" Watching "
(and some hoping)

Playing a large number of those top leaderboard puppies that are there year after year is mostly laughable.
It's skilless manipulation based on attributes and algorithms not player skill in the slightest.

The mixing of the
" authentic players " with the toddler Tee ball boys in online play IS this games biggest short coming and farce.

bruh the top players use zone, no one at top of the leaderboards is rocking directional.

SDS

I'm sorry, but if you are losing to players using directional hitting, then you need to git gud. Lol
