Is it me or do events play better than ranked seasons?

SDS

Not sure if I’m just imagining things but hitting seems way better in this HOF event vs HOF RS. You’re basically facing the same pitchers- Glavin, Crochet, Lee…

Is it dedicated servers vs peer to peer? Slider adjustments? Just make the game consistent across all modes for gods sake. The 200 mph fast balls on ranked HOF are ridiculous compared to this…

You are facing the same pitchers, but you are using all righty hitters + it's not the same in terms of matchmaking, you could get much easier matchups of people not knowing how to effectively use them.

I’m not so sure about that. I’ve played several WS players and if you have Lee, Crochet and Glavin chances are you know how to play the game. Most people are still dotting corners in this event.

Reduced pitcher energy makes for much easier hitting. Opens up the timing windows, increases exit velocity on hits, and makes pitchers control worse.

Lee and Crochet are not hard to get, you can easily get them without knowing how to effectively pitch to someone online.
