Take Check swings out

SDS

I played a guy who had 8 check swings in a row on pitches on the black. I ultimately lost on a walk off single cuz i walked 2 guys. cmon

SDS

Maybe you should have thrown some strikes ?

SDS

It’s happened to me as well. I understand your frustration. But check swinging is a huge part of an AB.

Also curious because I have no idea. But sometimes it seems like there’s button sensitivity. Are check swings based strictly on the hitter discipline or does it have anything to do with button pressure?

I was dotting along the black but wasn’t getting the calls which made it more frustrating

It’s based on a few things. Button sensitivity is one, discipline rating is another, type of swing is what matters most I feel. For me power swings almost always will get called as a swing, normal swings will be about 50/50 while contact will give me the best chance at a successful check swing.

I'm fine with the check swings the way they are.

That's the problem with online players, they want to reinvent baseball to make it super noob friendly, I don't know why 90 percent of online players just go play RBI baseball....go enjoy football scores and easy controls and collect all the silly cards you want and play All Star games all day, cause that's really what you're doing...your entire team are all stars gold or diamond or platinum players or whatever metal chemical element you want to describe your players.

If it's in the game, it's in the game.

Check swings are a problem. Its mainly due to people wanting fastball and getting offspeed. I do it all the time and I know there are some pro check swingers out there lol.

SDS

Had a guy check swing 23 times, only went around 3. I think check swings are fine but it should be closer to 50/50 that it's a strike

SDS

Why are check swings a problem? When has not swinging at a pitch ever been a problem in baseball? If you throw a strike it will still be a strike whether or not the batter swings.

Because we are getting bail out on pitches that we are committed to swing but a flaw in the game helps you out.

SDS

100% in favor of this. If you swing, you swing. Check swing strike % is ridiculously low, any opponent sitting fastball only can somehow check swing their way through any offspeed pitches and it's annoying. I tire of "Very Early" check swings.

Not so sure about button sensitivity, as the buttons are digital. Swings should be an L2 or R2 input, or a touchpad swipe, or thumbsticks if sensitivity is to be a factor.

I’ve had high discipline players swing through on the lightest of contact with the contact swing button and the same player check swing on a mash of the normal swing button. Drives me bonkers.
