Bunting

SDS

Matt Adams can’t be laying perfect bunts, just fix it and force the bums to swing the bat.

Edit: Pressing a button shouldn’t reward you. Make these dudes move their pci to bunt.

SDS

BTW, I remember you grinding last year with some tough games while on the cusp. Congrats on making WS.

SDS

Thanks bud. I remember it was a bad stretch. I remember I lost the WS game like three times because of checkswings bailing people out.

Id actually like to see check swings back to the way they were with the pinpoint pitching and pitch speeds on legend.

Checkswings were a problem man, I do not want to see it back… Pinpoint is a little OP, It should be more challenging or less forgiving

No, then it's back to sitting fastball because you can check on any low offspeed.

I would rather them nerf pinpoint hard rather then see check swings back

Also how the game plays on legend should not in anyway affect other difficulties like all-star or HoF just because legend is hard, check swings and all-star almost made me quit in 19 and 20. So to argue that check swings should come back because of a difficulty that less then 1% of people play is silly.

I quit in 20 because of checkswing bandits, those same guys are now the contwct swing bandits. What SDS need to do is to widen the skill gap

Just lost to a guy who bunted with power hitters.

As long as people can throw two cutters at your hands and then put a sinker on the black check swings are warranted. If they open up the FN pitch location windows a bit for pinpoint problem solved.

I bet if he tried it with Lofton would’ve popped out to the catcher lol.

That's kinda sad man. Even if they bunt successfully with a power hitter it is 1 base instead of 2 or 4. I would take that any day.

SDS

Not sure which is more frustrating, people being able to execute perfect suicide squeezes with power hitters that have terrible bunt attributes or the fact that it’s pretty much impossible to lay down a sac bunt without it being a double play or having to run the risk of starting the runner

Here’s what’s gonna happen if they keep tweaking the game……SDS will lose their player base. It’s no longer a “game” that the average fan can play and have fun. It has become a competition that in order to have real fun, you have to put in legit practice. The average fan is not willing to do that. This will eventually result in SDS losing fans, and losing money…..and the game will get worse. But hey I’m just a big dummy.

I understand that, I know it’s not good for business. I just wish bunting with power guys that have 25 bunting wasn’t that easy. Those guys should be failing 9 out of 10 times.

The problem is when they do it with men on 3rd base

Nooooo. I think they do need to find more of a balance with pitching/hitting but this is NOT the solution.

SDS

It’s ironic, because you can try to bunt a pitch right down the middle with a player that has good bunting attributes, and pop it up.

Somehow, squeezing in runs with power hitters is way more likely to succeed.

Is there a way to lay down a softer bunt? Every time I bunt the [censored] goes 60+ feet towards the defense...

You can try to let go of the triangle button just as contact is being made.
