Went back and played a game of 19

SDS

Last night I went back and played a game of 19, 20 is soooo much better, fastballs in 20 seem faster, off speed pitches in 20 are slower, the pci changes are amazing in 20, heck even the strike zone in 20 is better, in 19 the zone is black and it’s actually quite distracting. You don’t have line outs galore in 20, if you can consistently square up the ball you’re going to get rewarded, you don’t have the ridiculous constant bloops that 19 has. The analog meter in 20 goes so much faster which is nice. 20 has issues with fielding and to a lesser extent pitching but overall 20 is a much better game.

SDS

Agree with everything outside of the lineouts. Feels like those are now back in full force.

Agreed. essentially they made a step in the right direction as far as trying to implement a more defined skill gap. They have to polish pitching and def fix the wonkiness of Fielding animations, like you said. Even with all of the things you've pointed out people will get on here and say the game is complete hot [censored]. It's flawed but the effort to actually get skill to matter is glaringly obvious from my pov.

Absolutely agreed my man, some people are finding out that where they would get bailed out in 17-19 they’re not getting bailed out in 20 and because of that they think the game is trash

SDS

I agree. Fielding is the one true issue with this game. It it hard to hit? Yes. Is is because the game is trash? No its because I am trash. Do weak hits fall sometimes and screw people over? Yes. But people don’t complain when they win a game because of lucky hits. I won an RS game last night in like 12-13 innings. I won the game because he left his reliever in for too long and walked 2 in the last inning. However I had no business even sending the game to extras because I scored on 2 early/ok solo shots and an error. I also lost a game where I outhit my opponent 13-5. Was the game out to get me? No. I choked with RISP and less than 2 outs 5-6 times. I haven't hung nearly as many pitches since the pithing patch. It still happens but I know for a fact people just get lazy when pitching and blame it on the game. I have a feeling that alot of the hardcore complainers are good at madden or 2k and automatically assume they should be good at this game

I still think it's a little screw balled sometimes(negative exit velos, good/okays), but overall it usually balances out. My biggest thing is the timing thing is still weird because the PCI feedback doesn't always match the BAnalysis and that screws with my head a little. Some good/good will actually read JE/JL. Some JE/squared up foul balls that read P. It's screwy.
But if they tweaked it anymore, I'm scared they'll either A. Make it too easy again or B. Ruin it completely....

So basically I'd hate to be a developer but they're doing what they can, I imagine. It's a pretty good game in general too, only a little frustrating, which is normal.

Yup. Actually thought of something else. If you try 19 and swing at trash pitches below the zone you usually would be bailed out with a foul ball...if you swing at that now, more often than not it will get out into play for a DP/groundout. You flat out just have to be better at hitting now

Not to mention this year it feels like even a slight tap of the button doesn't go for a check swing in your favor sometimes

I haven’t had it, I seem to get rewarded as I should on a consistent basis

Especially on HOF. Since playing this event, I think I’ve had 1 good/okay where it was a hanging slider and was centered up with trout. Other than that one outlier, it’s played almost perfect for me. -with a 30+ game sample size.

SDS

Funny you should say that. I just did the same a couple of hours ago. I was starting to think my connection was lagging out or something so I figured I'd go back and see if I still had those issues on 19.

Nope, played fine, had no problems with fastballs.

So I'm relieved it's not just me, its the game. I'm not going to argue about what is better and what isnt. But what I do know is that I'm not having any fun with this game and haven't been since 1.05 or whenever the hacked pitch speeds. So I'm going to take a break from playing online for a while.

I'll still be around here though.

Same man, one outlier swing for me as well, but nothing in my other 25ish games that felt like I was getting screwed over

SDS

Agreed. I think 20 is a huge improvement over 19 and one thing not a lot of people are talking about is the custom pci. I think that is a game change. I have been playing around with that a lot and have found some options I really like. This makes hitting a lot easier once you find something you really like.

I wish they had the option to use the plain round circle I've been using for years.

Yeah, I actually really enjoy the event because of it. I’m such a sucker for BR though because I want the flawless run and to finish collections, but it tests my patience because half of the games seem like a crapshoot between people playing afternoon games in MLB stadiums, lunging at pitches in the dirt and foul tipping them, and good/okay feedback is much more prevalent. It seems like it was much easier to go 12-0 last year and in 17 than it is in 20.

SDS

I played 17 recently. I know that game had major flaws like the just late exit velos and top spin heavy swings. But man that game was awesome.

Lmao the golden days. I remember that, played so much I took a year off after (18). Remember how guys with 2 handed swings were OP and everyone's CAP had Corey Seager's swing? 😂

I agree Harry...things usually have to go your way in BR but I feel as if that's more than true this year.

I agree with you, I played a game in RS last night for the first time in a week. I only hung one pitch it was with Wood and my opponent crushed it. I will take that one hanging pitch over what it was. I think I left Wood in to long so that was my fault. I lost that game 3-2.
