Online Pitchers all the same

SDS

What is with this game with all online players throwing the same two pitches all game. High fastballs and low off speed that even perfect swings won't hit. Every game is the exact same, it is completely ruining this game. I'd rather deal with the connection issues than this.

SDS

Thats how it has always been. High/In fastballs low/away breaking balls.

SDS

So you hate beisbol? Is that what I'm understanding?

SDS

Git gud and whatnot

For sure thought you were gonna say cutters/sinkers on the black.

If you cannot hit those pitches, why would they throw something different? Especially something that you can hit? The goal of the game is to keep you from being able to hit the ball!!!

Watch real life baseball. A lot of the same

SDS

Are you throwing high off-speed pitches? If so, I am guessing you are not getting great results.

SDS

so you're saying the opposing pitchers throw it in areas you can't hit...? sounds like good pitching to me

SDS

I love dudes who only throw the same pitches in the same spot. Just sit and wait for whichever one you want to slam over the wall.

Hence is real life baseball and why not here in a video game. It’s called being a good pitcher.

SDS

Just gotta do this to them...

He said where he can’t hit it with perfect swings.. I guess he is swinging at pitches in the dirt. I would pitch him the same way lol

SDS

A 2 pitch mix would be a hitters paradise! I'm a lil confused but oh well?

Exactly, thats how you pitch. I didnt say I didnt like it I was just pointing out to OP that is how the Show has always been. You have to learn how to hit the inside fastballs/sinkers

Yep but the problem is that certain spots you have to be precise to hit. Most guys throw the exact same and I beat most of them but if I’m the away team I get effed. I mean 9/10 dude I play are so predictable. The problem comes with connection. I’m almost baffled at how predictable most pitchers are. And the worst is they rage quit when you yack, but they literally throw the exact same sequence every time.... I mean helloooo . I’m successful most of the time by deceiving them and pitching to contact, by tunnel or general tendency pitches. But these idiots get mad when you hit a bomb on a away slider that they have thrown 14 times on the second pitch lolol

SDS

Guess OP isn't kicking much AZZ

SDS

You could always throw up and away fastballs and down and in sliders!

Seriously though, you will see that simplistic pattern from a lot of not that great players. Many players refuse to throw strikes even to their detriment.

Remember that this is a game of adjustments. As you adjust to your opponent’s sequences, he will also adjust, if he is any good.

I have found there are basically two kinds of pitchers. 1) guys that throw strike one, ball one, 2) guys that throw ball one, ball two. Occasionally you see 3) strike one, strike two, chase pitch.

There are variations, but it’s very common, if you start taking pitches, to see guys that go 3-0, throw one high fastball for a strike, then ball four hoping you chase.

I find it pretty boring to work every count to 3 balls but some players just think that they are too good to throw strikes.

SDS

So you know what's coming and still can't hit it???
