I just don’t get why anyone needs to use R2 every at bat, even every pitch in some cases, unless you are a cheeser.
Some of us have autism but still enjoy online play.
Some of us have dyslexia but still enjoy online play.
Some of us have anxiety and quick pitching raises our heart rates and makes it really uncomfortable to play.
Some of us have other mental things that require that full second pause to think about the pitch, or to just take a breather.
Some of us have all of those things that all affect them, but still enjoy online play.
You know what should be rewarded? People who take their time and aren't just trying to spam their way to a win.
You know what shouldn't be rewarded? Being mad at a part of the video game that they've kept in specifically for people like us who need a few seconds in a key spot.
I personally don't spam it. I don't touch it when you're in the windup. I don't touch it when it's a normal inning or if I'm feeling mentally okay or if I'm able to stay locked in. But absolutely going to do it on every pitch when you suddenly pull it out as a "tool" in a tough spot to get me out.
There's way more people who are quick pitch spamming, than there are of us who maliciously hold R2.
Congrats on having a brain that is so fast at picking a pitch and location that you don't even need to consider anything before doing it.
I wish I personally had a brain that could do the same.
I guess I’ll say it one more time: People hold R2 primarily to throw the pitcher off - not because things are moving too quickly. It happens to me even when I am taking time between pitches or come to a complete set.
