Finally found a PCI setting that works for me!

SDS

I turned ON the outer and set it for reverb.
I set my inner to star-fighter. (I think that's what it's called)
I also turned OFF the circles/diamonds/dots in the middle.

The issue I was having was too much focus on the PCI itself, instead of the ball coming out of the pitcher's hand.

With this setup, it's like I am looking through binoculars now and I am able to focus on the ball.

It's like a night and day difference.

I’ll try this out.
I’ve always been taught “aim small, miss small” so I have the settings on just the inner as altitude. Nothing else. Been decent at time and slump at time.

SDS

Pci off has been my go to the last 2 years. Nothing in the way to distract me

Yep, I tried turning it down to like 10% and it was still a distraction. I saw a video on youtube and the guy had his dots and his inner turned off and was just using the outer.
I tried that but found it easier to have an outer and inner but no dots.
It is like tunnel vision now and helps me focus on the ball and the pitcher's hand.

Why do i keep hearing this? when i went to rifle training it was " aim small miss big, aim big still hit the target".to teach us to aim for center chest.

Well it makes sense for shooting, but you can’t aim big on a baseball!

Fair enough.

I use to have everything on and found this year that I am hitting much better with everything off other than the inner starfighterSpring Green at 70%. I will have to look at the reverd. Never did that. What color does everyone make theirs? I use the Spring Green at 70%.

SDS

Teal / blue color, 20%

Glad to hear it. It's all about personal preference. I love the diverse choices!👍

This is the best answer. Turn off all the noise and use the force. 👍

I use Zone hitting with Analog to swing and PCI off and it is by far the best I’ve played with, I’m Mashing everything ...Sticks Reign Supreme over here! (Legend Difficulty BTW)

I switch back and forth between flick and buttons. Flick seems to work really well offline, but when I go online it seems to lag behind a bit, so I use buttons online.

Thank you for sharing this! I was focusing so much on my middle PCI, I would constantly be yanking it under the ball every time. I tried your suggestion and literally night/day difference. Thanks again that was a great tip for someone like me who was struggling with hitting.

SDS

Yes with PCI off you can focus more on the pitch at hand and not the dam PCI hoping your gona square it up with ball definitely can be a distraction...remember all it takes is a lil flick with left thumb in direction of where the pitch is going and it will find its place for you, you still have to aim it properly but that’s how it is for me at least

SDS

It’s almost simultaneously for me (I use right analog swing and left analog to Aim) where I’m swinging(pressing up on right Analog) and Aiming last second with left Analog...it’s very Rewarding especially on the PS5 controller

Trust me, you're not alone in this - hardest part of any sports game I've ever played.

Best PCI is no PCI.

I switched to this and am really loving it vs the elevation dots I was using. Cleaner sight for the pitch release and I'm hitting balls up in the zone much better. Thanks!
