Bad swings and PCI being rewarded more than good.

SDS

I'm not a World Series player, and I'm not gonna be sporting a Flawless banner. However, I can sit comfortably in the 700's and generally average five to nine wins in BR.

It feels like things have drastically changed over the past couple of weeks, and I'm now lucky to win two or three games in BR. My opponents are crushing me, belting home runs where the PCI isn't touching the ball or the ball is nearly in the dirt. If it's not belted, they still get rewarded with singles or doubles. Meanwhile, I'm being patient, squaring things up in the zone, and I'm getting routine flies, warning track outs, or perfect/perfect foul balls.

Generally, this wouldn't be so frustrating, baseball is baseball, and bloops and unexpected home runs happen, but as mentioned the past couple of weeks it really seems to be a drastic increase in being on the lucky side on bad swings or bad contact.

Curious if others are experiencing the same recently, and I'm personally hoping for some tuning to hitting mechanics. I never used the Contact swing, but it seems like right around the time they decided to fix it is when things really got weird.

+1. Contact swing is still broken. Balls bouncing off home plate fouled, opposite batters box sliders, foul. Opponents are getting all hits that range from 9-12 with ball not touching pci but my 13-15 hits are weak outs while my 9-12 are also outs. I swear I square it up with good timing and the numbered feedback comes back low or if it is high, it has no exit velo. Frustrating experience.

Yep. I keep losing to dudes tha spams high inside 102 and can only seem to get singles. They strike out 12-17 times and hit a bond or two in balls below the zone or on forced hangers. ( fair enough on the hanger since I use meter) . Also hit 5 perfect perfects last game , 4 singles and a out lol. Hit 1 foul hr and 3 to the warning track . Meanwhile dude flailed at everything and gets rewarded

I have had a few close games then they go yard and the ball is barely even touching the pci and I even saw one where the ball wasn't even touching the PCI and yet still went yard. It gets very frustrating...

My favorite is when you play someone who flails all game then all of a sudden for 1 inning they can do no wrong and jack up 3 HR and 5 RBI...then go back to rest of the game not being able to hit the broad side of a barn...

This game has never had its s#$@ together.. I doubt it ever will
