Circle swings are back

SDS

This game is an absolute dumpster fire in its current state. I can't believe I've been playing this since April it is so not even fun anymore. They keep dangling these new shiny cards and collections in front of us and the truth is that's the only fun part of this game is collecting these cards. The actual game of baseball is awful. Circle swings, non PCI home runs, Center PCI Lazy Fly balls, pitcgers stamina completely broken. The inconsistencies of exit velocities, mlb park lag. One game I'm early on every fastball from the degrom the next game I can't catch up to a fastball from all leiter. It makes absolutely no sense its horrible. Battlefield best not get delayed.

Circle swings: Kind of still an issue, non PCI home runs: That is normal. You don't need to hit a ball perfect in real life to make solid contact. , Center PCI Lazy Fly balls: Not all perfect hits are smashed but could be a little more consistent. , pitcgers stamina completely broken: Definitely broken. Shouldn't be able to throw a CG with 100+ pitches and still have 50% stamina left. Seems to be an issue with PPP. The inconsistencies of exit velocities: Meh, I agree to an extent, mlb park lag: Doesn't seem to be an issue on next gen.

Not all perfect hits are smashed? You do realize every ball hit on the sweet spot on a bat is smashed. Usually a hit too. Not a lazy 300' can of corn.

Not true but this is a debate that will never find a conclusion because half will argue one way and the other half will argue the other.

I think what the OP is saying is that a perfect pci placement shouldn’t result in a can of corn animation. I agree that not every perfect pci placement should result in a hit, but that out should be a line drive somewhere.

I do agree with that but you are going to have outliers. Also, when comparing to "real life" you are not hitting against the greatest pitchers of all time every ab, which you are in DD, and you don't have the fastest/best defensive player at every position every ab.

I have been hovering between 750-850 in Ranked Seasons now for a week. I don't know if it's the difficulty level or what (i dont think it is). But I get at least 8 "good" swings with the ball someone center PCI (the darker yellow circle) and they are lazy pop outs. Every single time.....

SDS

Had 2 perfect/perfects last night on normal swings that were lazy fly balls, and gave up 2 HR on contact swings where the ball was barely within the PCI. It's quite frustrating, and I know I've had my fair share of HR on contact swings (I only use this with 2 strikes, as is what I think is what most do) but seeing tons of guys still using contact for all swings and it's clearly not fixed as they claimed.

Circle swings: Kind of still an issue,

-No it’s a huge issue especially on hof & legend-

non PCI home runs: That is normal. You don't need to hit a ball perfect in real life to make solid contact.

-Sure but the rate non pci homeruns happen needs to be toned down I lost 3-2 last night in my WS game where my opponent hit 2 off pci homeruns and I had 2 PP die at the warning track.

Center PCI Lazy Fly balls: Not all perfect hits are smashed but could be a little more consistent.

-See previous statement as to why this needs adjustment-

pitcgers stamina completely broken: Definitely broken. Shouldn't be able to throw a CG with 100+ pitches and still have 50% stamina left. Seems to be an issue with PPP.

-yes and with more SP having outlier it just makes for worse gameplay-

And to add what i think is one of the worst things in the game is the amount of time outfielders take to throw the ball in EVERY situation. As someone who played outfield
It really grinds my gears when i see these guys doing a 180 turn into a crow hop then wind up for the throw. It makes singles into doubles, makes playing angles a mute point, and really makes everyone the same as long as there arm aren’t horrible like Mullins for example. Also the tagging is very stupid.

This seems to be the norm in this game. Bottom line is you don't feel rewarded for your input.

Facts. I turned the game off only needing a few wins to reach 20 in the event yesterday because, I’m hitting the ball flush in the middle of the PCI/good timing for pop outs while my opponent is no doubting non PCI contacts/good-late timing. We both had the same type of players (all 99 batters and around 90s pitchers).
