What happened to hitting

SDS

I swear my last 5 perfect balls hit have all been outs. Nothing is falling

SDS

Nothing happened to hitting.

It’s been fine for me. I was hitting HRs at an alarming rate last night. VS CPU but it still felt juiced.

SDS

That's been happening. Perfect hits always line right to an infielder or hold up just long enough for the center fielder to catch it. Other than that hitting feels the same to me.

Seems like it happens in bunches. Some games I'll just be mashing and not have any luck. Others I'll get rewarded. Just part of it.

Should have been specific. All online in BR.

Im kinda new to the online scene but from my limited experience BR is a very rng. Im not saying its 100 percent scripted, but i feel like user input matters less than other modes.

Something is off in hitting RN all hits sound the same except for perfect/perfects, I can place good pci with good swing time and get nothing right now but cpu gets pci nowhere near the ball and early or late buts gets hits

SDS

Hitting is fine. You probably just moved up from AS to HOF or something is all.

Playing BR. And that's 6 in a row now

In ranked on HOF I notice giving up a lot more hits on weak contact. The amount of jammed and early hits has been pretty alarming especially on pitches out of the zone. Also, bunting needs to be nerfed, twice yesterday I switched to bunt defense and brought my 2B in halfway to defend the bunt and a drag bunt popped over my 1B's head. I thought bumping to HOF would reduce the cheap hits, but pretty sure its just people using contact swing. Perfect and early resulting in most homers and extra base hits. Good timing and squared up pci seems to result in a lot of fly outs and line outs. I have also had a lot of "perfect" foul balls the last few days, sometimes it changes the feedback and sometimes it stays perfect.

I've had 3 perfect foulballs the last week. 6 Perfect outs in a row. And the frustrating part like you say is the jammed hits and horrible placement hits i'm giving up. In a BR game yesterday i was down 2-0 after 4 pitches. an 11 PCI gapper double to the wall. a 12 jam shot single and another 11 PCI smoked double

SDS

7 in a row..... effing 7 perfects all for outs in a row. GG SDS. Way to "change the game"

I have been having some really bad luck too man. I normally breeze into WS. I hit 875 rating at 24-1 and have gone 3-6 since. I lost 6 games all of MLB 20. 4 of my losses are by 1 run where I had the lead and was taking way better swings and at bats all game. Then the classic couple bloops and early timing homer. My only 3 wins these past few days are when I go up big early and they quit. If they stick it out, my good swings start resulting in outs and they learn how to hit in the 8th and 9th innings. I don't know if its contact swing or if pitcher confidence is too influential.

SDS

I'm sorry but they secretly tuned the game in last update all perfect/perfects are out the announcers even do the no doubt hr call just for it to be caught, the cpu can get bad swing timing bad contact and blast hr's i get perfect perfect and it gets caught everytime gtfo

I said it from day 1, PP BABIP is WAY lower this year than it was last year. Since early release I've had about 50% of PP's be outs, and lots of PP fly balls by power hitters in all wind conditions be warning track outs.

There's a lot more "fielder magnetism" this year than in previous years, it seems.

Might just be perception and bad luck, of course. But the sample size is slowly growing to where I don't think that's the case.

I might need to change my camera angle, if you mean what I think you mean, because I'm convinced some of the CPU fielders couldn't possibly catch some of my P/P liners unless they were already running as I was swinging the bat

In your games played this morning, you were 4-8 on perfect perfects. Not exactly 7 outs in a row. It's still not ideal, but game history never lies. You do

I think I had two there at the end. But I started out 0-4 I think. So it felt like an eternity. lol

So where did the 7 in a row come from?
