What’s everyone’s thought on pinpoint pitching?

SDS

I’ve been using it for about 5 or so days. Can’t determine if it’s better than analog. How are you guys doing with PP?

SDS

Absolutely love it. Could never get analog down and meter was way too inconsistent.

SDS

I like it but my problem is that the accuracy I can never get spot on. Im always slow with any offspeed stuff. The fastball I have down. It definitely needs some work.
I'm not real sure if it will be popular enough to keep around, but then again, garbage classic has been here forever.

SDS

I like it a lot. I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks now. Most of the pitches I have down but that circle change and splitter can be difficult at times.

SDS

Great addition

SDS

I’m a new player this year. Started out on analog and switched to pinpoint and holy cow it’s amazing.

SDS

I don’t understand it. I do know if people are happy with it then it’s probably bad for the game.

SDS

Absolutely love it. Finally able to pitch somewhat effectively and I think it’s changed the game honestly

I mean that in the sense that PPP makes me be more patient at the plate and waiting for my pitch

SDS

Is there a tutorial for pinpoint? Normally I don't need one but it's so weird.

SDS

Love it! It does take time to get used to but it’s worth the move.. don’t give up on it

In the game? Not really. But several content creators have made one. The most effective tutorial I’ve seen has been from MovieGaming on YouTube.

Best addition to the game in years! Actually creates some skill for good pitching!!

For those not being able to get off speed pitch the speed, stop quick pitching and watch the analog motion preview, and then just copy that speed.

I think accuracy needs to mean more. I mess up and scribble worse than a 2 year old at macaroni grill and still dot because my release was great.

This is true.

Also, sorry to do this because we're so sick of R2 threads, but an important point to make about about pinpoint is that the R2 interference is real and it's bad. I've had R2 presses cut right through my drawing the shape, and then I have no chance at a correct release. Once it let me restart drawing but the other occasions the pitcher just threw the ball. On meter it was an interruption to the process of pitching but on pinpoint it's actually meaningfully disruptive to pitch accuracy. I know that's been said by others who have been using pinpoint already, but I wanted to add my confirmation of this firsthand.

However, I do really enjoy using pinpoint. At the moment, I find it more effective vs human players than the CPU. The CPU seems to take everything borderline when I'm using pinpoint so I found I was suddenly walking batters I wouldn't have walked using meter.

No but just go into practice mode with a pitcher and use it until you get it down or just play conquest with it. That’s how I mastered it.

SDS

I tried it for an inning or two on a rookie play vs cpu game grinding innings and I SUCKED at it. I’m sure I just need to use it a bunch and practice. I still use meter for anything important.

SDS

I like it. I’ll still miss my spots, but with analogue, the ball would randomly not go at all where it was supposed to. And that would almost always lead to a homerun. I’m not seeing that so much with pinpoint.

SDS

Was using meter since the release date but I felt it was too random when I would miss the line. Gave pinpoint a real shot 3 days ago and I'm not going back. I still see a few random results but I have a lot more control on my pitches. The R2 issues is annoying but if it really messes with one of my pitch, I can spike it. Nowhere near being an expert but it changed my game so far.

i dont use anything(classic), i control my pitches using stick movt. i never want the ball to go exactly where i place it except maybe once during a count........

SDS

Pinpoint is great on ps5.. not so much on box series s.. but i like knowing if I hang a ball, its my fault..well it atleast feels that way.
