I'm on XB1 and not PS, but yeah, I've also had some trouble this morning since they finished the server maintenance. Ironically, today's the first day since the Early Access Bundle launched that I've had any sort of problems. I've experienced disconnections, and since making the finals in my Mini Season, I've gotten the dreaded "unhandled server exception" that has kept multiple people from finishing their seasons for days.
I'm hoping that these problems are the result of the game being such a hit (esp. with it being on Game Pass) that their servers are just overwhelmed right now and things will smooth out soon, and it's not just shoddy servers that are going to be a problem all season long.
The content creator space if overflowing there are 65,235 MLB streamers at least and they all do the same thing.
They are all pretty much fake and could actually care less about the community in my opinion.
None of them can handle any sort of critique or argument to their position ND if you challenge or call out any of them the block you while their cult followers...I mean subscribers attack you with insult that have nothing to do with the topic.

I have said this before and I'll say it again these creators are doing more harm to the game now then they are doing good
keep your eye on the pitcher's arm and cap and you will notice the different slots and trajectories of each pitch. do not follow the ball with your eyes as you will end up chasing it. your eyes simply can't track it , if they can then you are special.
if you use your peripheral vision to see the ball and keep your focus on the pitchers arm slot and delivery you will track and recognize pitches much quicker.
Do not follow the ball with your eyes? Guess I've been doing it wrong all these years.
You will still see and watch the ball but if you look at the pitchers arm and his positioning right after he pitches you will notice how each pitch type and its location varies. you will see trajectories and the space the ball leaves behind.
Okay, interesting. I just watch the ball come out of the hands and react. It becomes a muscle memory kind of thing after a while.
I seem to struggle most against sliders Righty vs. Righty. The ones that start in and end low and middle. What should I look for on these?
if you watch the pitchers arm and it's relative distance to his head. you will notice the slider is released slightly different.
this is a strategy that works in real life too. you are tracking the pitches trajectory, speed, and distance relative to it's release point. you will notice immediately how each pitch moves and your peripheral vision will track the pitch as well.
you need to keep your eyes in one spot on a straight level line. here you will notice when the ball moves above and below that level line.
I think this works better in real life than in this game. The arm slots are all very similar and when you're facing a guy who throws gas, which they all do pretty much, you have no time to look anywhere else but at the pitcher's hand and the ball as soon as it comes out. You also need to decide right away if you're swinging or not and where you'll place the PCI, because especially on HOF and Legend there is simply no time to "watch" the entire trajectory.
I do get what you're saying about the peripheral vision, you start doing that automatically after some time. Most newer players focus on the strike zone or their PCI too much, which is a mistake because then you don't have your eyes in the right location and you'll be late almost every single time.
Sure let's dumb RS down some more and then have massive threads of people complaining about how easy it is. I'd say to OP, respectfully; if RS doesn't do it for you past a certain point, just play something more casual.
Love ranked season and it's competitiveness and it does "do it for me". Ranked is basically the entire reason to play diamond dynasty. Would you agree that at only 1 month into the game cards such as Acuna and other great live series cards with low vision are irrelevant at hof difficulty? It's not dumbing it down to make the game more enjoyable for everyone. I'm not saying pitch speeds are horrible I just dont see the need to change speeds and pci size everytime you enter a different division
