Who asked for faster pitch speeds and small pci?

SDS

I don’t remember people asking for juiced up pitch speeds and pci the size of legend from last year? Every game on hall of fame is a pitcher duel with whoever gives up a hanger or doesn’t get good okay all game hitting a bomb or two wins. Sds absolutely ruined what was a great hitting design before the stupid patch.

SDS

A lot of people asked for a bigger skill gap, and while you could argue back and forth how well they actually achieved that, faster pitch speeds and smaller pci factor into trying to create that.

Then why are the best players in the world like pitching rebel, McGunski and your friend Kyle annoyed by the patch? When the patch first dropped juicing speeds and shrinking the holy hell out of the pci and perfect perfects being far fewer they all complained and so did streamers. It’s utter bs

I never said the game was perfect. or that it a sufficient skill gap was achieved, hence the "you could argue back and forth how well it was achieved".

Your question was who asked for faster pitch speeds and a smaller pci, and plenty of people did because they wanted a higher skill gap. Maybe not this "fast", but people def DID ask for higher speeds than last year.

perfect/perfects should be difficult to achieve

SDS

I always saw people asking for faster pitches and smaller pci but every guy i face are always very/too late on high fastballs...

Kyle took back his statement, he said he actually supported this

SDS

I love it, it creates a major skill gap. Legend was difficult for top players, they've adjusted now. I actually have barely seen any complaints from top players about hitting after the last gameplay patch, fielding is the main thing they want fixed now

SDS

The top players cry 99.9% of the time they lose a game. It's just how it is.

SDS

Ok, but top players comprise 0.5% of the population, why only cater to them?

SDS

game is in a terrible spot, the patches have only made it worse. The AI is what is broken, its what is often deciding games. Things like Freddy Freeman booting a bunt down 1st baseline to allow run to score and inning to continue with runners in scoring position. Pitchers that are dominant then cant throw strikes and walk in winning run. You are not playing the other team you are trying to manage whatever the AI has made happen. Ever notice if the game starts with you ripping the ball and scoring a couple runs, then 3 quick outs on a pop up a dribbler and smashed line out the same thing happens for your opponent. The ninth is a comedy show its so ssscripted and fake, close game will always include a error or hits on great pitches put runners on, pitchers that are greatest of all time walking hitters and of course the contact hitter bomb to tie it up. Last game I hit a HR contact swinging with Gold Glebyer on 0-2 pitch I was just trying to foul off to run up pitch count. I wasnt even holding controller. It was a descent pitch. Thae AI interfering in the game to I guess in SDS view make it more competitive is whats killing the game. This isnt a racing game it does not need catch up mode, its not a baseball sim its a arcade platform now. Oh and the top players are now heavely influenced by SDS since they get insider access, access to devs aand other things that help their channels. Even if not consciously they are affected by their relationship with SDS. SDS wouldn't do it if they weren't getting positive returns for the effort. Unfortunatly we are not ever going to get the game we want because it would not be something that a new player would go and buy because the learning curve would be to steep, at least that is what SDS believes, so the AI or RNG intervenes and we have this big pile of steaming C**p that no one really likes but we keep playing in the forlorn hope that one day they will put out the game we want not the one that is most profitable. We know what the chances of that happening are ssince they are a for profit company. If I'm wrong then why doesn't SDS in a goodwill gesture refund any player that is not happy with the game? If the game is so good then it should be a small number and you remove those unhappy voices from the conversation. Why because thered be crickets on here along with a few streamers and the rest would be gone. Anyway I'll keep hoping they make it what it could be and look forward to the personal attacks that this will bring. In the end it is just a game. Good luck!

SDS

^ game has way too much rng instead of making it all based on user input nothing else, its a video game not irl baseball. but people with no clue will defend all the scripted [censored] by saying "iT hApPeNs iN rEaL bAsEbAll".

Well, we are in a society that caters to the smaller percentage. It’s kind of a thing now.

SDS

There is definitely an adjustment period this year once you reach hof but stick with it and you’ll start getting it.

SDS

I prefer HOF and can still score runs on HOF. I made people quit on HOF yesterday. I'm sure plenty of others do too. I hope they don't change it.

SDS

HOF seems to be more rewarding feedback wise than on AS. Its way more realistic. You can actually strikeout people

SDS

Everyone always talks about this skill gap thing but in my experience there is a skill gap.

The best players win the majority or their games. Does the best player sometimes lose? Yup, they sure do. Just like in real life. Some of you think you should never lose a game or something.

The 15-16 Warriors clearly had a massive skill gap over their competition to win 73 games. But they lost 9.

The 2007 Patriots were undefeated until the superbowl in which they lost to an inferior team in the giants.

Losing happens, even for the best players/teams in the world but the better players/teams still win a massively high % of their games year in and year out.

Some of yall need to get over yourselves

Sure didn’t seem like he supported it in his videos from his lack of enjoyment with squared up balls going nowhere getting shut out a lot and rng seemingly deciding games. He’s hitting a lot now bc he’s doing golden boys playing with only gold cards on lower difficulties. Also some of these guys will support sds no matter what bc they are content creators and the game is their livelyhood so it hurts them to not adapt and support a broken game.

SDS

Does anyone actually believe SDS makes sweeping changes based on message board posts from a random and miniscule part of their customer base?
Not a chance. Not even a factor.

Facts are, everyone on this forum represents not even 1% of the total people who play this game.

They base their changes on raw data, and when a majority of teams are hitting well over .400 online, that's when they decide to make changes.. now only the WS players are over .400
