keep quick pitching expect to see R2 as a counter

r2 isn't a counter. It's a cheat. I'll agree that the balk move needs to be eliminated from the game but r2 isn't the answer. It messes the input on the other side....

How is it a cheat? They have a giant stop sign logo that pops up when someone does it now.

People do it to throw off the timing of the pinpoint control making the pitches less accurate. It's definately a cheat. Get better at the game. Lay off pitches and crush mistakes like the normal decent players.

So when you are driving and there's a massive stop sign in front of your face what do you do?

It's not cheating to check the previous AB pitch sequence or current sequence in a long AB, when a giant stop sign is displayed telling you a player is accessing it.

thats not what people are talking about though. they way youre expolining it is fine. using it to check pitches and stuff like that. The problem is the people that do it for the max amount of time on every pitch

@sean_87__PSN

5 second timer between pitches seems a bit excessive. Also not everyone wants to sit there and take over an hour for a game so try to understand why people try not to take long between pitches? You can't ask people to try and understand your side without extending the same courtesy

Then live with R2 holding. I’m not going to let someone throw 10 pitches in 3 seconds like it’s a machine gun. If you don’t want a timer, R2 is the best way to make both sides happy.

You know if you put the ball in play or even get a hit, the time in between pitches will be extended. Just a thought.

no it is cheating when people use in the middle of someone trying to do their pitch sequence and it stops in the middle causing lag and pinpoint control to mess up so yes it's cheating. I'm guessing you don't use pinpoint to even know how it messes you up.

Not sure if this is accurate... Once you start your motion with pinpoint the hitter isn't supposed to be able to hit R2... If that's not the case they need to fix it...

Somebody got me with it last night on a 3-2 pitch and I wasn't expecting it and it threw of my timing and I threw it in the dirt for a walk. Was in the 9th inning and I was up 8 - 3 at the time. He planned it just right and it truly screwed up that pitch. After he did it, i pushed pause and let it sit for a minute to kind of say "hey, i know what you just did, and you did it on purpose". I paid close attention the rest of the game and got the win.

it lags the motion out when you are trying to follow the pinpoint meter. It's all about timing on when they press r2.

Right, if they press it right before you start and then let go while you are still moving the stick, it changes your starting place.
It affect PA pitching the same way.

It's used as a way to make a pitch less accurate. You can't really quick pitch using pinpoint in my opinion so the qp argument is a meh one at best. I think they should just take it out of the game and put a graphic at the bottom showing pitch sequence so r2 isn't even a thing.

Last night had a guy holding R2 strategically late (well played), bunt dancing and bunting all game, stealing every chance he could get. I retaliated with R2 for an inning so so which slowed down the shenanigans but he eventually ramped it back up. Ended up winning 1-0 off a single from my pitcher in the 6th. Awful game, very satisfying victory.

SDS

They need to do it like real life , you can step out the box for a few seconds take a breath , but once the animation of your guy is in the box the pitcher should be able to throw. Also looking at the pitch sequence should not cause the pitcher not being able to throw. Not all but a ton of players do this so you can't start your wind up and online with some sort of lag already no matter how small if your playing on analog this can throw off your release point timing which causes balls or worse center cut pitches which is what they want. Like I said if they want to make a animation after the pitch of the guy taking a breath while you overlook the sequence for a second fine before stepping back in the box I'm all for that but once in the box I should be able to pitch.

Countering quick pitching is one thing. Intentionally holding R2 for as long as possible, even after the pitcher steps off once, is an exploit to mess with your opponent’s pitching. It’s a pretty cheap tactic which unfortunately has no counter

Mercy rule them 😆

@halfbutt_psn said in You R2 holders:

You guys that are holding R2 the entire time your opponent is trying to pitch are really a special kind of bad person.

Maybe learn how to win a game without cheating? You might find it actually feels good.

They put an indicator in the game this year during the person is accessing either R2, R3, etc... So there's a stop sign showing you you can't pitch. It's not cheese anymore.

If I tell the cops I’m gonna rob a bank, that makes it legal.

It's more like if someone hits the button for the cross walk and the traffic light turns red for them to cross, don't get upset you can't floor the gas pedal.

But I get it now guys are saying while the are using pinpoint they claim it messes up their motion sure to lag although you aren't supposed to be able to hit R2 once the motion starts so I don't know.

imagine comparing R2 to breaking the law

I love how people complain about quick pitching as if they're playing real baseball and need 25 seconds in between pitches to readjust their gloves, socks, tap the bat 3 times, hold the hand up and dig in a bit more and then finally say they're ready to hit....it's a video game. You're hitting a button or flicking an analog stick to swing. You don't need a huge reset between pitches and most player use the same pitch patterns for every hitter so it's not like you can't figure out what pitch is coming.

The R2 thing only screws up people's pinpoint gesture and it isn't even about quick pitching. I've had guys where I wait to figure out what pitch I want to throw and then as soon as I start the gesture somehow they hit R2 and that little timer comes up and now I automatically cannot get the gesture timing right because it stopped mid gesture.

So go ahead and claim its to stop "quick pitching" but we all know its not. Maybe if you need an hour between pitches to figure out you're going to swing at a slider 3 feet out the zone then maybe you should go play something else.

R2 is a garbage feature that has nothing to do with playing a game of baseball, and it should be gone. Follow the rulebook as much as possible. Let the batter request time just like an MLB batter would.

isn't that disabled for everyone online? I don't think that's an option currently. Correct me if I'm wrong. I played 500 games online during 20 but only 8 so far this year. R2 doesn't really have anything to do with controlling what would be a balk normally. A balk is a balk. R2 just freezes the pitcher. Very odd game mechanic.
