AS vs HOF

SDS

I am not one to gripe about this game. I enjoy the heck out of it and never try and get too overwhelmed with frustration. But please for the love of god, in ranked season 0-499 AS difficulty, and 500-1200 HOF. 2 decent/good players in AS is insane. B2B nights I’ve had games that would’ve pushed me over 700. Final scores 13-11; 15 home runs hit, and 12-8; 11 home runs hit. Such an easy fix. Please please please @SDS

Pitch better?

I’m not saying the game has issues but I don’t want to hear the excuse ‘hitting is too hard’ or ‘ hitting is broke’ when things are nerfed.

Oh 100% but it is frustrating when people are on 98-100 with Newhouser but also on every single one of his other 5 pitches.

But you are right. I need to be better too! Mistake pitches get punished

I was in DS, played a WS opponent. He won on an early ok homerun that went through the wall. I thought it bounced off my player but it went off his glove thru the wall. I was pissed. Then my good squared were all outs. My perfect perfect we’re hits or right to someone. It’s horrible what we deal with

SDS

Yeah, I think HoF should start around 500, not so sure about the 1200 part though. (Though I don't enjoy legend, so it prob would be better for me), and if the competitive players like it, why not I guess.

I can’t hit as it is on All Star and I want to play online just impossible for me. It’s not enjoyable and most of the missions have to be online. RS, Events and BR are impossible for any casual players to have success.

Which is why they can't do universal pitch speeds, which I get. You would still have half the speeds on all-star or below, (Really more than half since most people who make WS stop at 900)

Also to follow this, the game before the 12-8 debacle tonight, I won a 1-0 game, with 87 Whitley.

I think that is another frustrating aspect is the unpredictability.

Mistake pitched should always get punished or at least sit hard.

Idk, I read a lot of complaints on here and other than the defensive issues specially with fly balls I enjoy the game play.

Pitching is rewarding if you stay focused and have a plan. As the user you can’t take pitches off. And if there can be perfect/perfect outs offensively I’m ok with that being evened out by perfect/perfect pitches missing spots.

Overall I feel like you can’t have a system where if the user executes perfect/perfect (in any aspect of the game) it results in 100% success rate.

I agree, every game I’ve played on all star has an insane amount of home runs and a ton of hits. People can come on here and say pitch better but I think this game is designed to be more hitter friendly. The strike zone feels way tighter than it has in the past with every boarderline pitch seemingly going to the hitter. And with the pitching it seems like even if you have a good input the ball doesn’t even end up close to where it should be. I’m all for mistakes being punished because they should be, but if you don't have a perfect release the ball seems to either catch way too much of the plate or misses the zone completely. That shouldn’t be the case, expecting players to have perfect release every pitch is just not reasonable. I can understand it if you have a really high pitch count or have a bad pitcher in. But we are talking guys like act young Kluber missing the zone and hanging pitches within the first two innings on good user input.

This game feels a lot better on HOF, pitching actually becomes usable. On all star it doesn’t seem to matter who you run out there because they get shelled.

I agree with the difficulty change request

Idk about 500 but I’d say Wild Card Division should be HOF.

If you don't play Legend with pitch speeds maxed then you need to practice more so you can actually play the game. I feel all the other levels should be learning levels and once you advanced to Legend then the game unlocks to the full game.

I don’t know about the pitch speeds being maxed. I did that the other day before heading into a game on HOF and my timing was so jacked up lol. I was early on 100 mph fastballs 😂. Personally I’d just stick with legend but do whatever works best lol.

SDS

Once I got to 700 last season, the hitting got really really hard, I took advice of the community and practiced on hall of fame vs the computer, problem is the fastballs online seem way faster than vs the computer, I really believe there should be ONE difficulty for online, either all star, HOF, or legend. Just keep everyone at that same level ...

I actually don't think the game should unlock until you go to Yankee Stadium and step into the box against Aroldis Chapman. If you can't hit at least .400 off him in about 50 AB's, including double digit home runs, then what are you really doing with your life?

I think they should get rid of all offline modes entirely and just release a game called “MLB The Diamond Dynasty”. The full game would be unlocked at launch and would be entirely online. That way we wouldn’t have to deal with offline casuals posting their irrelevant opinions in the Diamond Dynasty subforum for online players.

It’s amazing how little respect is shown to people who aren’t the greatest at this game but enjoy it. I’m sorry but how can a casual player ever upgrade his team if everything is on H of Fame and legend?

A ranked playlist should be harder. You don't see casual athletes get rewarded for not practicing in real life correct?
