Wow perfect lineouts, warning track power galore. Weak opposite field base hits so many [censored] pop ups holy [censored]. The winning probability thing at the bottom right hand corner feels like it has a huge impact on the outcome of the game. Why has every single game I’ve played been super close and so many comeback hits in later innings? SDS tweaked hitting right after launch and it feels so much weaker. Good contact is still good contact, no reason for it to be weak soft ground balls even when I’m underneath the ball. Why are fielders running in mud and not locking onto the ball.

Something feels incredibly fishy with the timing aspect, it’s like a near perfect time frame otherwise you’re [censored]. Is anyone else seeing the new update? Feels like absolute garbage.

Nope, compared to previous editions, this game plays really really well. I'm happy with most aspects of the game, minus a few game mode specific issues.

It’s really not that good. Check swings are back, the gravity pitch on perfect input is back like how 20 was, I’ve seen more swings in the dirt rewarded more than good/good. I’ve even had some event games where I had 8 out of 9 swings be good and yet all outs only for my opponent to hit a ball in the dirt in the gap to win.

I feel the game plays ok, but the past few days I’ve noticed a fail on hitting and a buff to garbage swings by bad players…. They want those dollars, yet you could ru. Out a team of golds or silvers and still get the RNG win. I don’t support a money grab but I think they docked with it to allow dogshat players to compete

That’s exactly what they are doing. They buffed terrible contact so the newbies on their Xbox and switches can get easy hits. More hits = more probability that money is spent on the game.

The results of certain pitches is so bad… I played for 18 years and coached for 7, the amount of pulled down and away sinkers or off speed for bombs is disproportionate to real life. On the game these same players can’t hit the broad side of a barn yet get these unrealistic results

To lucas8181: (since I dunno how to directly reply to you. Yeah yeah, old man jokes incoming)

So, you're saying you get perfect gameplay on the hardest "Difficulty" without touching the sliders, or adjusting only the CPU sliders to the max? I find that literally impossible to believe. I love baseball, but I can't enjoy the game if I have to humiliate myself to reducing the difficulty to Amateur and adjusting only my sliders to max to stop every near perfect (and most perfect) swings from being lazy fly balls or lame trickler ground balls for outs. Don't get me started on the pitching... Makes the game literally impossible to enjoy when I have no chance at winning a match, when I can't even compete against an A.I. at a competitive level, god-forbid a real player in PvP. You love baseball, I get that, but don't you dare become blinded by it.

I've noticed from the first week where I was actually worried about every pitch I threw leaving the yard not so much now. Plus when I'm hitting it I'm dead center of the pci with not perfect but good timing and I'm not getting any hits. I suck at hitting but was excited this year as I started out 9 and 3 now I've lost like 10 of 12 with better players and can't hit [censored]. Against a lot of gold pitchers no less

almost like as you go higher you're facing better players.
