It’s way better. I only threw a handful of “perfects” the entire game. I wasn’t cheesed to death by contact swing, and if you don’t know how to pitch sequence, you’re gonna get touched up. This is the way it should be.
The non pci hits. The pci square ups that are pop outs. Throwing it three feet out of the zone and guys still connecting. The unrealistic sinkers. First year player, and I gotta say this is arcade trash. It rewards people who just smash buttons and don’t even understand baseball. I’m so sad that it took my three months to realize this game is no better than madden or 2k. Disappointed.
Can we maybe develop a DD mode that isn’t filled with ridiculous CAP pitchers and broken deliveries?
That’s got nothing to do with how absolutely broken, untouchable this card is. It is a free win in ranked for anyone who knows even basic pitching. The competitive balance is completely out of whack with this disappearing sinker garbage and they need to get back to reality and do something about 102 mph sinkers for 120 pitches in green energy.
Time to retire this game. I loved playing online for a few months, but it’s just the same meta cheese team every time. Cabrera is so unbelievably unrealistic, it just ruins this experience.
This card should have way less stamina for it to be balanced. Keep the pitching stats? Fine, but there is no chance, NO CHANCE, anyone can serve that heat up for 120 pitches. It’s completely broken and anyone who says otherwise it’s kidding themselves. You have a giga second to respond to a pitch that hops like off speed and has zero trajectory that you can catch up to. Your only choice is to guess. Sinkers don’t move like that in real life and when you’re trying to play competitively, and see pitches and put a good foot forward, stuff like this just ruins the experience. Too unrealistic, too easily exploited for basically a guaranteed dominant performance.
It’s not about winning and losing, it’s about a balanced competitive landscape. This card is hell on earth and it’s a free one that takes zero advanced knowledge to be dominant. A hitter with 125s across the board still doesn’t neutralize the insanity that is 102mph sinkers that move.
If you use Cabrera, you don’t respect the game or other people. He is broken, everyone knows it, and at this point it’s just a [censored] move to use him.
I don’t like the high rated cards either. Wish it was a slower pace to get up to 99s, if we ever reached them at all. Fifa has a better model in my opinion, you don’t see 95+ until the very end of the cycle.
Of course. But against competent players who can paint a sinker anywhere with even low control pitchers, it’s unrealistic. The card shouldn’t turn into a god because someone can twirl an analog stick correctly
I’m a legend player and have made World Series every season so far. This is my first year playing this game. You patrol the boards and comment on every single thing here. And then assume to know something about me because I am claiming that a pitcher is still broken regardless of the patch. What’s wrong with you?
1.6k posts. Cool man
Grow up man.
Everyone has seen him for 3 months straight and his pitches still teleport. He is the pitcher of choice for nearly every single person online and I doubt that’s because it’s all Marlins fans. This card is BROKEN. The fact that everyone can use him does not negate the fact that it is BROKEN.
The fact that a card came out in May and is still the best pitcher in the game, just shows how busted it is
I hit him plenty. Doesn’t make the card any less dumb.
Fix this dumb [censored] card for gods sake
I see absolutely no difference on any of his pitches
More frustration than anything. It takes so long in this game to adjust, get better, recognize pitches and sequencing, etc. Then you make it to the higher levels and realize there’s a ceiling for skill. It becomes so random and unfair, that it loses its appeal. Guys that are swinging at pitches in the dirt and balls tailing 2 feet away from the strike zone don’t deserve hits, plain and simple.
