This game has the worst pitching ever

SDS

Everyother pitch is hung even if you are just early or just late or whatever. Literally impossible to hit your spots. I just tried throwing a fastball at the level of someone’s head, got early so technically it should be higher than normal. But it somehow goes right down the pipe and I lose on a walk off bomb. FML

SDS

Have to appease all of the people crying over not being rewarded enough last year.

Crying? Wanting to be rewarded for your swing is crying? You do realize those same people also say pitching is an issue to and want to be rewarded for good pitching input. Amazing right?

It’s not the hitting that’s the problem. The hitting is great imo. It’s when I’m scared whenever I pitch because everybody and their mom can hit a homerun off a hanging change up that shows there’s a problem with pitching

Seems like you had a little rigging done in your game. SDS loves to do that sometimes, no matter where you hit the marker that pitch was destined to go down the pipe!

The pitching is not good... I'm up to pennant race, and played a few guys who were the home team in divisional, the pitching does not get better

Last year I played right at 300 RS games and my era was sub 3.3. This year I’ve played 20 and it’s 6.0. Lol something changed

Yeah

Doesn't help either that the strikezone is the size of a pea. Nothing on the black is called a strike. You're forced to throw over the middle. At least in my experience so far.

SDS

There is literally no point to having a user interface for pitch accuracy right now. None

Same here, pitching has always been my strength. Sucks that I’m scared to pitch now lol.

Yes crying. Had to listen all year about not being rewarded like the game owes you something. This is what most wanted right? So now it's going to reward your hitting skills so pitching takes a back seat.

So aren't you crying since you want pitching to matter more? Or are people who advocate for pitching exempt from "crying"?

On the contrary everything I’ve seen is on the black and called a strike. Online and offline doesn’t matter. I’ll play BR and get BS calls against me and the same thing on conquest mode. Pitching is this years “bad change”

Hmm. My pitches on the black and others are not called strikes when i play. Some do but it’s ones where most of the ball is I’m the zone, when technically if part of the ball is in the black, it should be a strike, but in my case they aren’t

SDS

same as last year,the game is not translating what the controller is doing. Therefore it's done by design and on purpose. Trying to be passed off as " pitcher control ". 🙄

And this this makes pitchers like Glavine completely useless because they hang the big breaking balls and everyone crushes them.

I’ll second that on Glavine. Maddox is awesome, Smoltz is ok. Glavine got destroyed for me
