High fastball

SDS

Is ridiculous. If you can catch up, I tip my cap, this spamming of it is dog shiiit

It's why I start my PCI high. It does occasionally bite me on low off-speed, but I'm better at adjusting to low junk, if I start my pci middle, I'll just get blown away.

SDS

Man I love it when people try to spam that. Like he said above me, just start high with the PCI. Gotta adjust and catch up or get left behind man. They're not slowing pitch speeds down anytime soon.

Game mode not helping? Maybe look into a monitor. 1 ms response time is worth it if you have the money.

No no no. I need you and @eatyum to glue my thumb up and stay up in the zone.

I don't start my PCI high. I start with it pretty well centered. I do keep my thumb loose by rotating it in full circles until about when the pitcher starts his windup and then I just do a slight flick until about a half-second before he throws the pitch. Sometimes it varies but I do some movement before I have to get ready to hit just to stay loose. Whatever feels comfortable I would say, just some movement before the pitch so you don't start completely with no movement. It's like when you play real ball and they tell you to move to the balls of your feet.

The high sinkers and fastballs are a problem, but if people do keep going to it that’s there mistake. I’ve hit plenty of nukes off the high fastball, and people keep going to it. I have my share of swing and misses but I have my fair share of punishing them also

The high sinker argument I get, but the high fastball argument I don't. Im afraid we're going to end up with 18 again if they slow them down too much. I already have to pick my spots in BR throwing 4 seam fastballs. If they slow them down, I think they need to add movement to the 4 seamer. The biggest reason the 4 seamer is no good is that it doesn't move at all a lot of the time. 4 seamers do move somewhat.

No I like the pitch speeds, he’ll I play the event because it’s on HOF. Helps me get used to the speeds. Because in custom practice I’ll kill the ball on legend with the sliders juiced and come into dd and swing a wet noodle

Yeah, I'm slowly working on the Mays conquest map for some reason. Totally messed me up today and ruined a good BR draft.

I think the pitch speeds are really good right now. I could almost turn them up just a smidge but I really hope they don't turn them down.
