Meaning contact swings are still broken?

SDS

Yup I guess so

SDS

Man I just learned of this today. About to go contact swing the hell out of balls in RS

SDS

What's the deal with contact swinging. I thought it was always recommended to use normal swinging with zone hitting

Don’t join the darkside, this is a problem.

contact swings aren't broken.. You were always able to get exit velos with high power guys... Lower power guys still aren't getting exit velos...

Then why did Ramone say on stream that they’ll patch it?

Incorrect, 55 power Robbie Alomar is getting 95+ mph exit velocity using contact swings...

Contact swing shouldn’t even exist.

because people complained about it... People with high power have always been able to get decent exit velos with out much drop off. Btw there is a a drop off this year and the only reason we are even noticing it is because legend is harder because of pin point...

lol 95 + still isn't even warning track power on most parks. I think the issue you guys are having and don't know is that contact swing makes for easier perfect/perfects which allow for decent exit velos. The velos are still below normal and power swings tho...

In a game dominated by HRs if tons of people are using contact swing then contact swing is clearly broken.

My guy, that’s 55 power getting 95 mph exit velocity on a contact swing.. that should not be a thing don’t reward guys with a bigger pci and opened up timing window using circle, simple as that. As it currently stands contact swing is way too over powered, contact swing with low power guys shouldn’t be putting rockets into the gap with consistency

SDS

But as always some people will fight to have something that benefits them kept in the game at all costs smh.

They should and they need to be heavily toned down. No contact swing should be hitting the warning track.

SDS

Given the general uselessness of power swing, there's an imbalance.

The benefit of contact swings over power swings is a fairly severe issue.

What sort of exit velos should 55 get? I mean 40 power gets 100 velo on perfect/perfect. Again the issue you guys have is with it being easier for the perfect/ perfects. BTW mid power guys most certainly should be able to rocket to the gap with consistency and if contact swing produces the perfect hit then it should do that. Those guys couldn't be used if that wasn't the case...

SDS

The concept of having 3 different swing types is pretty bizarre in the first place.

SDS

I mean it’s pretty simple right? Contact means bigger PCI and lower exit velo. Power should be smaller PCI and high velo.

Or am I using too much common sense?
