Check swings..

SDS

Check swings are worse than ever before in the show. There's no rhyme or reason to the calls but when it feels like 90% are called strikes, even if the batter barely moves, something is wrong.
Yes they said you have more control over it but I've yet to see it. Plus they didn't actually show us them doing it. They just slapped together a few sample videos and put it on the presentation.
SDS has a proven track record of lying to the fan base so whose to say this isn't another one of their deceptive gimmics to make you believe you have more control.
That's all I have. Anyone else care to come in.

SDS

It’s not perfect but it’s 1000% better than last year. I would rather 90% be strikes than check swing bandits.

SDS

Would be nice if they could just call a swing a swing. How hard could it be?

It's better this year... last year was way too easy to check swing. Too many people could easily check swing every other pitch last year... it was annoying. I like it being harder to do it personally.

SDS

Check swings are fine, it’s not supposed to be easy to do.

SDS

Perhaps I'm in the minority here but you all make pretty valid points. I guess my main issue is once again we were told one thing and yet the gameplay does another. If i flick the stick or tap the button quickly it was my understanding you would have a better chance of checking your swing in time but I'm finding that it's not the case. Even on the animation where the batter barely moves I'm getting strike calls.
It's just annoying that it feels like once again they have lied to us about a piece of the game.

SDS

Checkswings are perfect imo.

SDS

Check swings are perfect. Learn to lay off a pitch that's outside the zone.

SDS

Love how check swings are being called, no need to change it

You just have to learn how to have a good eye this year with many players using pinpoint pitching.

Practice, practice, practice

SDS

I think that the gripe here is it seems random what gets called a swing is random and doesn't match the animation. Could be a lot of reasons for this.

SDS

I think they went too far the other way, but it's better than everything being a check swing in the past.

It is kind of silly when you get the barely moving animation called a strike though.

SDS

get better. stop complaining about checkswings

SDS

I actually LOVE the change from last year’s game where you had the check swing bandits running wild. It was absolutely ridiculous. This year if your player doesn’t have a real high discipline rating you’re getting called for it. Absolutely love seeing it.

SDS

If your PCI is on the ball as you check, your chances of success are greater, as with pitches under the strike zone; up/in/out is tougher.

But I’ve noticed if I track a slider in or sinker out with my PCI, I have better success. Maybe 25-33% rather than 10% or less

SDS

I’d love it if every time someone pressed X it was a swing no matter what

Only problem with that is check swings happen IRL and they “have” to make it realistic, it would be very cool not to have it tho, especially because I check once or twice per game. I’d benefit more than most of my opponents.

SDS

I have no problem with check swings. Waaaaay better than last year!!!

SDS

I’d much rather most get called strikes as opposed to last year playing guys that checked every single pitch it seemed like

SDS

I wish there was an option to turn them off. I don't need them and they just get in the way when they auto happen out of the blue.
