Two weeks off from Ranked. Played tonight...

SDS

I'll be taking another two weeks off from ranked. It's horrible.

This is NOT the same game that was released. Something happened under the hood and I don't care for it.

I'll grind out the inning vs CPU on HOF and Legend for more consistent gameplay and results that are more representative of the input I am making.

It's a shame.

Biggest issue continues to be contact swing. I mean, I struck out 15 and 12 batters respectively. Game one had me give up two bunt singles to Freddy Peralta, who also stole a base. Opponent hit two HR on feedback of 9 and 11. I had multiple outs and fouls with 15.

Second game, I won with using contact swing for the first time this evening leading off with Soriano in the 9th for a rocket double. Trout then P/P for a single to walk it off. I felt dirty.

They messed with sliders and haven't admitted it. It's a real shame.

Not playing Ranked until contact swing is addressed.

It's across the entire game. Showdown and moments too. Not sure what game you are playing.

Negative exit velocity on good/good with zero pitcher confidence. Even popping up on good/good inside inner PCI in Showdown. It's A.S.S. right now.

Buddy sharing the screenshots. It's evil.

Hitting feels a lot less rewarding than it did 3 weeks ago but I just figured I was burned out a bit.

SDS

I definitely feel like at least since TA 2 something happened. I just got out of another ranked game where both my opponent and I were both making solid contact and we weren't being rewarded for it. I ended up winning because I hit 4 solo HR's on perfect perfect swings but besides that I finished with 6 hits and he finished with 4. I felt his pain on some of the outs he had.

I hit a flyout with Live Series Trout with the fastball being up in the zone and I was on that pitch and it was still a flyout on BR. I'm not sure I could hit that pitch much better.

I was telling myself that. Then I started watching the Astros/Sox game. Ooof. Like a bad Technical test there. Turned on the Yankees. Catcher interference and then Andujar in LF.

The problem is we are never going to know what adjustments get made. They can look at batting averages across various levels of play and just arbitrarily decide that they are too high or too low or whatever.

Itโ€™s like playing a game where the rules are constantly changing, because they kind of are!

SDS

This game is no longer a game you can just pick up and have a really fun experience. This game has become a competition and you gotta put legit work in to โ€œgit gudโ€ and it will never happen for many players. I made it to 843 and believe me I suck at this game and refuse to put in the work required to get any better than that. I already spend too much time playing this dumb game lol!

I hear ya man. I'm not touching ranked until I can either win at least 8 BR games or 30 event games, which has become impossible with this event. I've won like 6 out of probably 50 games played this event.

Yea. Game has been playing like dog [censored] lately. I was messing around with all tops now and monthly trying to do the 15 HR mission. Also playing with some pitchers I normally wouldn't. My opponent had a bloop single, stolen base, infield ground out which moved him to 3rd and infield single. So that was his first run. This was HOF. Second run was weak grounder through the infield and Trout double completely out of the pci and almost out of the vision pci. Meanwhile, I am again (like it has been for a week now) dealing with warping pitching speeds and have to swing when it leaves the pitcher's hand to hit a fastball or sinker. If I do manage to square it up it is either foul or goes nowhere. Meadows, Crawford and Winker seem to all be hitting with pool noodles. Nice to see the east coast streamers still hitting slow pitch softball speeds though. Is there a top player in this game that doesn't live on the coast or out in Nowherenearcivilization, Montana? Again, you will never convince me that fiber in the midwest isn't inferior to trash east coast internet when playing this game. Fun actually being able to read and react for the short time it lasted. Back to the warped garbage online game it has been the last 4 years. Oh well.

Actually contemplating going back to play PUBG.

I don't care about the win, I was just trying to do missions. Trying to make a product playing like [censored] fun again.

Thing is now i wait to see if the other person is abusing it before i do.

If i am the away team i just use X,X,O until my 2nd strike -

if i am the home team and i notice they're just using contact straight away then im forced too.

its nonsense, it feels like a cheat code.

when are they fixing this ?

SDS

But when people post this there will always be the SDS fanboys who say itโ€™s something wrong at our end. Something is wrong with the game, and it seems like SDS doesnโ€™t want to fix it or they donโ€™t know how. I have more fun grinding against the computer then playing online.

SDS

i felt this heavy. I believe that i am a pretty good pitcher but this guy was abusing contact swing so much. every pitch wherever i threw it he would get some bs single it was every discouraging. but it is what it is i guess. we go again today!
