Playing the game makes me feel physically uncomfortable

SDS

It has never been like this before, but the 2021 version of the game took a step backwards by allowing high level pitchers to be far too strong, and with so many able to hit edges and corners with unbelievable consistency, the game has me on edge every time I play it online to the point that my gut is physically aggravated and it is an uncomfortable feeling. I think it's from all the failure. This game is no fun when you can't bat .200 with every player on your god squad and you're facing a guy who can pinpoint on command.

To be honest, I have come to hate playing.

SDS

Have to,agree with you. Been playing ranked seasons for years, since 2012 probably, and this years game is just zero fun. If you do score it’s from a HR. While I do like striking out 25 batters w Nolan Ryan, the offence is gone.

SDS

Yes, it is amazing that they could screw it up this badly, with all their prior experience on trying to make the game playable in online H2H. I wonder if it has to do with them expanding to XBox and having cross-platform play between X-Box and PS. As it stands, I can not imagine getting MLB 2022. Even if I got it for zero dollars, it would not be worth the effort if is going to be this much of a piece of trash!! I think I am going back to racing games which was my original interest!

Makes you wonder if they got rid of cross-play if it would play better?

Anything would be better than the current pitiful excuse for a video game. The only thing they have going for them is that you can obtain all kinds of God-Squad cards without spending real money and also not having to invest too ridiculous of an amount of time (unlike the Immortals programs in 2018). BUT if it is going to play this badly, then what is the point!!??

This game desperately needs a revamp or a Blizzard-level debacle to shake things up. The VERY repetitive animations and gameplay are unacceptable at this day and age. The day to day gameplay is already repetitive, I mean, it's baseball for God's sake. But to have the same diving, throwing, fielding animations is just plain lazy. Makes playing the game a bore once you realize it.

TO SDS:

Just get a bunch of minor leaguer's who need more money as it is...and get them in MoCap suits ASAP. We need to see more dazzling plays, more silly swings, more DADDY HACKS, more unconventional dives in the outfield. DD does not need more development. It's fine for now. Go Focus on the gameplay.

This could be the most idiotic thing I've ever read on this forum. Kudos.

I don’t think cross play has anything to do with it. They just made the game too hard to play for the average person (which includes me).

I think ‘22 will be better. It was too hard to get people out in earlier versions. This year they simply over-corrected. Hopefully they’ll adjust somewhere in the middle, so that the best players can still rise to the top, but the average players can still have a little fun, too.

Hitting this year was BY FAR the easiest in the 7 years I’ve been playing this game. Unfortunately this sounds like a you problem

Ok, then what about this argument (based on two different types of games).

If SDS took time off, like the developers from the WWE 2Ks series, for a year or two and totally revamped the game; would the community complain that there wasn't a yearly game or would they go without it for that time period if most of the days would be fixed?

This is my first year playing The Show and I still know your full of [censored]. Pitching is stupid easy and op. As a first year player I should not have a .99 ERA with all my pitchers combined in online play.

Agreed. 100%. I don't think Anything will change though significantly until they scrap this game engine they been using (for how long now?)

0.99 in what….2 games??? I’ve put Hundreds upon hundreds of hours into this game spanning as long as i can remember and it has never, ever been easier to score runs…and i sure as hell know my vision isn’t getting any better

Simple answer then is don't play.

I realize that it is really the only viable option for Baseball on the console but that is no reason to force yourself to do something you hate.

You saying it has never “been easier to hit” is an opinion.

The data shows that nearly everyone who has played DD for multiple years has seen their average drop considerably with this year’s game. We all can see our stats from previous years.

So if you’re hitting better, you’ve improved. Good for you. But don’t get on here and say the game is easier, because we all have data to prove that is false.

Don’t pay any attention to anything jonblaze says.

You’ll be much happier.

I'm not great at the game, but last year I was like 80-30. All hard fought games. I could actually see and hit the ball.

20 > 21 by far

SDS

Could it also be that PS5 owners hit better? Frame rate is even smoother on PS5.
For me, PS4 Pro… regardless, it’s an issue this year.

Agree. Pin point pitching ruined 21.
