Take R2ing out of the game.

SDS

Why is this in the game? Someone from SDS explain this? Why not just always have the pitches show in screen. Just be honest you leave stuff like this in here to cater into the losers that want to play cheesy.

Stop quick pitching

SDS

Also funny how most R2 holders have it so we can't message them. They can't handle the smoke, bunch of babies who never even played HS ball.

SDS

Not sure why it can’t be disabled for online play.

SDS

The only thing I see R2 being used for is to look at pitches the pitcher throws, so maybe they could make it to where you can only hold R2 before someone selects a pitch. That doesn’t fix the wait that it causes, but it prevents them from actually messing with your pitch timing on pinpoint especially

There is no such thing as quick pitching in this game. Either you’re ready or you’re not. Pitchers dictate the pace of play.

Tell that to the R2 abusers. They really need to find a fix for that

SDS

I personally don’t mind it for checking the pitches, but if you’re holding it cause you’re not ready then pause the game instead.

SDS

Serious question...is it okay to hold r2 at the beginning of every at bat to see how you were pitched in the previous at bat?

On this same topic, it is nice that you can see when the other player is holding r2. So, you can wait to start your pitch until they stop.

Except some do it as you wind up and if you use PPP, it screws up with your meter and you throw meatballs

R2 is trash and doesn't add anything to simulating a baseball game. Freeze ray on the pitcher with the potential to mess up the delivery? It's a fail. Why can't the game just flash up the pitch history for the batter during the walk-up, and then on with the at-bat. If batters really believe they are being quick-pitched, they can request time from the umpire. (Or use the pause menu, which is brutal, but at least there's no impact on the pitcher's delivery).

SDS

I don’t even really use R2 to check an opposing pitcher’s pitches. I pause for that at the beginning of the game or when the pitcher comes into the game. After you have that information, just play the game. If you want to slow things down for a moment, I don’t mind if you call time. Just stop with the R2ing during ever AB.

SDS

If they took it out they would most likely put a 4 or 5 second timer in between pitches. I would be ok with either.

Are you friggin kidding. You try quick pitching a baseball team in real life, and they'll have their dugout on you. They don't like it, and neither do I. Frankly, they should put balks back on, and then this wouldn't be happening. Put on balks, and get rid of R2 (although it does show your confidence level).

In this game maybe, but not in real baseball.

SDS

It’s one thing to use it every once in a while but when your kicking the snot out of someone and they hold it every at bat to try to mess your pitches up, that’s BS.
They need to do something about this. I don’t abuse R2 or quick pitch people. It’s annoying as hell to deal with

SDS

Just don't let it interrupt pitching. Problem solved everyone happy.

SDS

The happy medium is to make sure people can only press it once per pitch. Right now they can h is 3x

SDS

I defended it at first but uts obvious that some people only use it to try and mess up your pitch meter to get a meat ball.

Guy will hold it down then release it and then quickly push it again just trying to mess you up. Its cheese and it should be gone. You should be able to use it at the beginning of an at bat and maybe once after that. So each AB you get 2

Same. I didn’t have a huge problem with it in events but now that I’m playing RS I am sooooo tired of it.
