And You Guys Hated Directional!

SDS

How does everybody feel about timing?!
It's what the misinformed thought Directional was-- just swing away!

At least with Directional, you needed a plan: Hit it on the ground with Lofton, lock and load with the power guys, opposite field with Boggs.

It was situational baseball.

Now, a blind man can hit .399 if his buddy just yells, "Swing!" at the right time.

Who knew baseball was this easy!

SDS

I might have to try it out in Showdown or Conquest just to see what all the hype is about.

SDS

Yeah, I also want to know is it just glitchy in H2h? I was a directional guy a few years ago but the hard contact rates were just so random. Zone is definitely superior but Ive never tried timing.

SDS

Why does everyone act like timing is new?

SDS

Timing was added for a reason….to help players compete with zone players without using zone.

No other UT game offers different options for online play….everyone has to do what everyone else is….why can’t this game do the same or match up players using the same interface…it’s really not that bad of an idea.

This is the only game I’ve played that literally uses handicaps for competitive online games. Gtfoh and create a level playing field. SDS is so afraid of players quitting cause it’s too hard.

Logic.

Because they changed the name, and apparently it's "usable" online... that is if you play RS in Allstar and below.

Fake news. I hover between 750-850 with timing while playing zone players who are sweating it out all the while I’m kicked back and relaxed watching TV and letting the game hold my hand.

I was about to say, timing is probably viable online until you get to higher levels. Sometimes I can tell a timing vs zone hitter based on certain results of pitches ie, I groove one on accident and they miss it....likely a zone hitter bc the timing guy would smash it lol

im sure some do well, but I think most timing players will struggle at higher levels

NHL does not offer an interface that lets you aim/shoot the puck with the push of a single button. There’s different ways to aim/shoot the puck is all. NHL doesn’t aim your shot for you or let you rely on RNG.

Yep; you can use square to snap/hold square to slap. You have 3 input types, including the 3 buttons one but that's like playing naked...

Edit: well, if you edit and move the goal posts....

@allday9128_psn said in And You Guys Hated Directional!:

Because it is.

While Directional and (the former) Pure Analog hitting methods have timing aspects built in, they are each different. In Directional, you can manipulate the direction of the ball, somewhat. While in PA, you had to flick up the right analog stick to the side of the plate where the pitch went (L, M, R). Timing Hitting does not have these features. Also, the timing windows for Directional and PA were considerably shorter than in Zone. I have not read/heard if there are different timing windows this year, based on the different methods of hitting.

NHL does not let you both aim/shoot with one button…you still have to do both separately. You haven’t answered my questions in the previous thread btw….conventionally.

Why was feedback removed? It was inaccurate? Interesting…so if that’s the case, your opponents last year didn’t really get perfect/perfect cause the feedback was inaccurate. Interesting ain’t it….logic.

Lol nobody gives a Fk about you and your friend testing feedback and it being “accurate”. Nobody. No matter how many hundreds times you bring that [censored] up NOBODY CARES. You hover at 750 because that’s where you’ve hovered for years.

Your using timing for the exact same reason, on the search for some excuse to why everyone else can crack 900 but you can’t. On here on a fake account talking about being able to win everything and anything whenever you want but when I look up Greenbuk7 I see differently. I see mediocrity.

Typical response to a question you don’t want to answer lol. Maybe people need to stop saying it was removed cause it was inaccurate until it’s been confirmed by SDS themselves…conventionally they don’t want to answer that.

Also, where did I say I win everything/anything whenever I want….show me homeboy.

I hover around 750-850 with Timing against sweaty zone players who have to do twice as much as me….sound like legit gameplay to you?
