R2 Solution

SDS

Not sure if this has been suggested yet but would you guys prefer them to have the pitches up like you were pressing R2 until the pitcher starts his windup then they disappear?

SDS

I think if they take R2 out they should also make it a ball if they quick pitch, yeah there’s people who abuse R2 and they’re toxic but I’ll use R2 if some guy is just quick pitching me and I can’t time [censored] up evenly, I’m not being toxic but it’s the only thing that balances out the quick pitch, especially if they’re quick pitching and slide stepping.

Balk not ball

SDS

No reason they can’t have the pitchers repertoire, hitters attributes and defensive alignment somewhere on the screen at all times.

Then they can have the previous pitches up before the wind up.

you're playing a video game. There is no such thing as quick pitching. When you're playing the game as long as you're paying attention then there is no issue. If you're not ready to hit when your guy gets in the box then either stop playing or pause the game.

SDS

Yea played a guy last night who quick pitch all game and called it keeping pace lol. I'm r2 cheesin hard after the first quick pitch. You don't want me to r2 then stop with the quick pitching bs.

SDS

What are people referring to as quick pitching? Working quickly, or do they mean slide stepping without coming set? Those are 2 drastically different things.

SDS

Quick pitching and contact swing hrs been hit all over the place and everybody wants to cry about r2 holding. The one who cry about r2 are the one who quick pitch. Funny how that works

There is no quick pitching. It's just an excuse to hold R2. Unless people legitimately need several seconds to think about what pitch is coming, which I don't believe

Are you talking about slide stepping then? because again, different issue. Pressing the button and immediately going out of the windup as soon as you get the ball isn't cheese. There is plenty of time to react to pitches.

Oh, I agree with you, but it seems some R2 positive people are talking about one of those aspects, and some are taking about the other.

The anti R2 group just wants people to not abuse it for the purpose of their pitcher chucking one down the middle. We've all been there, where you have a big moment and the opponent will use R2 just to screw your start of your pitch on analog and now pinpoint.

SDS

I guess I’m in the “quick pitch” crowd. I grind the hell out of this game. I want to play as many games as possible. Waiting extra seconds between every single pitch of every game is a waste of time. Varying the time you take to throw pitches could be a valuable tool to use vs some opponents to throw off timing, but for the most part let’s keep it moving. I get waaaaaay more annoyed at people who take forever between pitches to throw than I do at those who pitch quickly.

The R2 peeps are almost always the guys with the low team averages who are just hoping to force a mistake pitch. It never happens when you play vs an absolute goon with every player batting .400 and up. They just adjust to you and hit.

SDS

Funny ppl are in denial about quick pitching like a drug addict telling hisself this is his last hit. It's been an issues since they took balks out of the game, why do you think so many ppl use kenley. Jus another way for ppl to cheese through a game then ppl get upset when they try and combat chesse with cheese. Would love to see how many balks you quick pitching cheese players would get in a game if sds actually did the right thing and brings balks back

How is using Kenley cheese? Because you can’t hit vs him? How about be ready to hit when you get in the box instead of holding R2?

Explain to me why i get R2'd out of the windup then. Not everyone that hates R2 is a "quick pitcher." Bring balks back, none of us actually care as long as R2 is gone

No i hit just fine. How about you come set before a pitch like a the rules of the game says you should. Oh sds doesn't make you, so you want to throw 10 pitches in 60 seconds?

Yes. Let’s see how many people balk and then start crying about it, love to see their quick pitching tears. And good luck with Kershaw, talk about taking a minute to get set lol

SDS

People who hold R2 are literally making the same argument as people who quick pitch. Both people are trying to dictate the pace of play in different ways.
