Increase bullpen stamina , and get rid of pitcher confidence, if i give up 2 back to back hr I'm not suddenly gonna lose my control. .
Fix the pitching control, BB/9 should determine the size of the green bar and control should determine how precise you have to be when using the right thumb stick to hit your spot. No more random [censored].
Confidence should totally affect a Pitcher’s control and there is a way to make it work, but I think I’m seeing your point here - don’t have the game tell me I’m nervous by fudging my pitch locations. If I give up two b2b bombs you’d better believe I’m going to be careful with the next guy, but I’m going to compensate for that by changing my strategy myself. I don’t need the game to do it for me. Or maybe have the confidence change the meter or pulse speed (or the analog equivalent). Actually I like that idea better.
I have a slight variation in your BB/9 idea; leave BB/9 in simmed ABs only (along with K/9, HR/9 and H/9). Pitcher control with a pitch should be the determining factor for the size of the green bar (it should also be graduated), and other factors like energy and perhaps confidence should determine the meter or pulse length and speed and delay etc.
By graduated I mean bright green perfect area in the middle fading to black to the edges of the meter, with other ‘levels of closeness’ to perfect determined by the pitcher’s control value for that pitch.
You get 10% away from perfect on a pitcher with 92 control? That’s going to be close to his spot. You get 80% away? That’s probably not going to be close.
You get 10% away from perfect on a pitcher with 50 control? That’s got an ok chance. 80% away from perfect? No way that’s close to the spot.
Also early and late on the pulse/ meter/ whatever would mean an early or late release point.
