I think it's the best the show has ever been! I'll probably play 500 rs games this year if it stays like this

Agreed. Since the patch you mean?

SDS

Yeah. The game is playing well for me. Don’t understand all the hate. Any harder would be dumb, and any easier and it’s bombs away again.

I feel like I have complete control over my hitters. Getting good results.

The timing window may be a little off. PCI is a little small. If they tweak it at all, that’s where it probably needs to happen.

SDS

You're joking right? Ok Ramone....scroll through the forums a bit and read how like 90% of the community feels about hitting, especially since the patch...worst MLB The Show hitting experience ever, not even close...

It got harder. But it’s been alright for me.

This is the most hyperbolic claim ever. Worst mlb the show hitting experience EVER? give me a break lol

Have you even read most of the posts on the forum? You are most definitely in the minority....agree to disagree I guess but I can assure you that you don't represent the masses...

You misunderstand me, I'm only disputing the EVER remark here. It is not the worst EVER. People being unhappy with it doesn't = worst EVER.

SDS

Ok. IMPO, the worst ever, although I have only been playin DD since 2017. The timing windows are broken, good PCI placement not being rewarded, good/ok results on perfectly centered PCI 10 times a game, etc....

I thought it sucked at first. Then I adjusted to it. I’m getting consistently good games with hits and all different types. Not just HRs.

People will complain no matter what until this game gets completely broken.

I think they have two options. Either keep it the way it is now, or roll it back to the start. If they keep tweaking it they will break the game.

I’m an average hitter, if I’m hitting well and getting good results, you can too with the way it is now.

I also think pitching complaints are overblown. I’ve been pitching decent too.

Lol. You are delirious. The last 3 shows, in order were
17 - be late be great
18 - slow pitch softball
19 - mlb the lineout show

SDS

20 is just 19 redux now.

Ok. Just read the comments on the forum champ...many, many people up in arms on hitting since the patch. At the very least, the timing window is some of the worst ever, IMPO.... Also, many people have called 19 the worst ever and see how many comments you can find on the forum, comparing this game to 19, including the most recent post...

SDS

Pci size is fine, the timing window isn’t. It’s ridiculously inconsistent. Plus there’s still a good amount of good/okay on centered up pci swings. I wouldn’t have a big issue with this if the timing window wasn’t awful.

Should’ve just increased pitch speeds instead of cucking the timing window.

SDS

It’s good to make an adjustment. That’s what you do in baseball.

That said, the tweaking of the game you describe has already started.

Just because I struck out 14 batters in a ranked game doesn’t mean the pitching is fine. I’ve observed that “good” releases fairly consistently go higher than their intended location. “Just early” or “just late” seem to give better results.

In other words, just because you are good enough to make the adjustment, doesn’t mean the problem is not there.

SDS

Offense has been reduced. It's mjch better than it was. Just because 20 homeruns aren't hit per game doesn't mean hitting is bad. Pitching still needs a tune up

SDS

I played my first RS game last night and, on Veteran struck a guy out 15 times lol. I didnt do much better. Only scored 3 runs on like 10 hits. Won 3-0. I expected a lot more runs. Last year in my first 15-20 games was getting all kinds of mercy rule games and tearing the cover off the ball. Ill chalk it up to all the cpu games i been grinding having me way off. But I was having a hard time hitting Snell. I cannot imagine playing on HoF right now. But it will probably be better.
As a side note the Good/OK PCI reading being almost identical to the Perfect ones are confusing.

Worst show experience ever??? Ehhhh I don't know about that....

I think I’ll go with the criticism and experiences of Reb and Kyle (both of whom I have watched since the patch) and agree with them that the patch is awful and did nothing more than randomize the results of good contact.

SDS

I have had some PCI feedback that looks almost perfectly in the middle without getting perfect, perfect and sometimes without even getting squared up.
