Whats up with the fastball

SDS

For some reason the past couple weeks I have not been able to see the fastball as well [censored] previous times.

I have a 1ms gaming monitor and it use to come in so crisp and I was hitting the fastball so well

SDS

Idk. You probably already checked your screen settings and what not. I have not been experiencing that problem. I played a few games online last Saturday and if anything I was to early on a lot of fastballs. So 🤷🏻♂

SDS

I can’t hit a fastball to save my life lately. It’s pretty insane. I’d blame lag or something but it’s constant and off speed I’m typically fine on.

SDS

Yeah I have no idea. And I've been playing online ranked below 700.

I used to be early all the time.

With a gaming monitor, is it better to be at a lower resolution?

I have my settings on xbox set at 1080p 120hZ

For some reason, I've had trouble hitting good fastballs and sinkers lately too. Not usually the case. I just chalked it up to how I've been feeling overall and not the game. But, for sure, I have not been as good lately as I usually am against fastballs. Like, no chance even when I know it's coming and I'm gearing up for it. It's amazing how often I've said, "How did I not hit that," after pitches lately.

It's the lag. Played some all star games tonight and getting blasted by 94. Had to wait for 3 innings and pick up tendencies and off speed pitches. It gets worse when players leave.

SDS

IMO it's SDS the lowered the timing window & that is what is mostly contributing to being so much harder to hit FB's that are 98+ MPH. Makes it harder getting a PERFECT timed swing. Most of the better players at best will be just slightly early or late & every once in a while get a PERFECT.

In regards to seeing it coming. IMO it depends on the pitcher & his BREAK attribute. The higher his "Break" is, then the more his FB is less visible with its trajectory.

SDS

Played 11 games of the event this morning (10-1) and don’t think I got one hit off a 102 fastball (and saw a lot of them). Thankfully other players gave me enough off-speed to do some damage 🤣

SDS

This game just gets more worthless as time goes on. Continually matched against players near the servers and I am throwing slow pitch softball while getting blown away by 94. People turning on 102 like I am setting it on a tee. Played some HOF games and it is just MISERABLE. Hard to compete when you have 120 mph wiffle balls against Sunday slow pitch beer league.
