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.

So what of people who are physically unable to play with zone hitting? Should that not be allowed to play online?

Lmfao about authentic ball. A targeting system like your shooting a bazooka is not authentic baseball.

And no matter what I’m using I never press square. Ever

SDS

I don't care which system anyone uses to hit (or pitch), but I won't really go for use of the word 'authentic' until they figure out pitching and batting views from the inside of the pitcher/batter skulls. Like what they're actually seeing. Maybe then we can talk about an authentic experience. Until then we've got pitching from either the outfield view or the catcher's view (!) and hitting from the catcher's view primarily...and for some,also from the umpire's view if he's standing back the mandated two metres for COVID-19.

Me personally.
Pitch = outfield
Hit = zoom.
And since this game systems ago hit the market.
Every pause is also a mound visit when pitching.
No long pause period on offense nor defense.
As authentic as the game allows and never used another team in online rated other than the Chi SoX

No-
Everyone should be allowed to play and enjoy the game.
There just needs to be separation between the skill sets.
Like I said , one player plays chess and the other is playing a rigged game of Chinese checkers with a extra sock full of marbles.

It doesn't fit, never has, never will.

You obviously are of the younger generation(s) and your typing display dictates such.

So what is more skillful
and /0r harder to do?
Place a aiming area over where the ball is - as in aiming a bat OR just pushing a button and watching and hoping.

*Also is it harder to hit with a diamond souped up attribute " likeness" or with a 30-40 contact rated player? Ect ect.

One has a pci the size of the state of Nebraska and the other a vision rating of say 19 and a pci the size of a table spoon

So great analogy there

Fyi I was throwin'

2 finger side armed curve balls and full float true knuckle balls before most of you kids own dad was born probably.

There is No arrogance in that statement in the slightest. I am quite a humble man.
It is a fact and thus why someone (* other than me) started this thread.

The 2 hitting options of discussion are no way a comparison in any shape or form thus they need to be in two seperated categories or at least with a toggle option to isolate the different skill sets so the game is more enjoyable for the players who desire such.

Go outside and get daddy to throw you an under handed pitch and just swing a choked up real bat without aiming at the ball !
Who is hitting with the bat when any contact is made.
??.
Ha..the pitcher is the one hitting a bat, not the batters bat hitting a pitch !
Bass- ackwards and has no resemblance to any ball I was ever a part of.

Dude, it’s a video game, get over yourself. You’d be surprised how many here are in the 40+ demographic (including yours truly). Directional is so limiting, no one with decent skills uses it. The good players will hit any pitch for a HR because they can reach every single one with their PCI. Can’t turn on a heater on the wrist with directional. PCI, definitely.

First, I think you need to reacquaint yourself with the definition of humble.

Secondly, you have not made a comment yet about directional hitting that has not been belittling or demeaning to those who use it. You are building yourself up by tearing others down. Decidedly not humble.

By the way, there are folks over at the Operation Sports forums who will insinuate you are a child and not a true fan because you play DD and not Franchise.

It is all a matter of perspective and of course and neither you or they are right.

Brother,
I don't print in this place anymore . There was a time years ago where this forum was of quality comments and concerns and it had quite the developers input included. Now? It's over run with the " me me me" tactless society which now has reared its ugly head here and sadly stayed.
Just saw / read the factual thread and placed my Factual comments and as anticipated the slither from under the rock appeared.
This forum was great at one time. I remember during the college world series a large group of us were live filled with productive comments and play by play that was multi generational until the final pitch .
Now ? Again.. those folks are gone ( or like me , just read without printing )and the developers have to refrain from certain participating assets due to the classless and without tact responses that fill this place.

I am aware of the demographic that plays this game and know quite a few in their 50s, 60s and yes a couple who have broken the 70s age bracket .
I've been around a long long time with this game and am still blessed with the opportunity to participate in each and every alpha,beta, and " tech test" they have .
Sooo, not sure why anyone would conclude I just appeared and try to tell me this or that about anything to do with this game, forum, or it's age bracket.

Only thing is that the 2 forms of play need to be seperated by user choice just as guess pitch is.
