A far cry from the golden days of MLB 17 (15-17 essentially), definitely better than 18/19. I can tolerate the vast amount of good okays but the pitching is what the problem is. Using pure analog, if I overshoot the yellow bar, the pitch should ALWAYS fall lower Than where you intended and the same goes for releasing early, the ball should rise. This is the first edition of The Show (at least since ive been playing in 15) that it isn't the case. Sometimes sure, but other times it'll intentionally go to a location that punishes you the most

Ok. I got a few examples. Seems like sleep deprivation definitely played a role but what is really intriguing is Roys change up in the one game compared to hals fb in the other. Again both games HOF RS. Small sample size and will add more if people find this needs additional data collection.
Oswalt 80 mph change and Hal 99mph fastball - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e_w4S2D_Jw (couldn't figure out how to make this loop)
Oswalt 81 mph change and Hals 98 mph FB - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uet9CztWWVI
Oswalt Hal 98 mph fb - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvYF48ygVx8 (this one... sleep deprivation)
Oswalt 96 sinker and Oswalt 81 change up - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uK7ktDlcxlY
And again I’m not looking for an excuse. I’m looking to see if there is a coding flaw or some issues with networking that sds could possibly fix and benefit everyone. This has nothing to do with looking for an excuse, you must think I’m one of the many others on this board that want to blame the game for their losses. I outhit that guy in that game, he got a few boppers and I couldn’t hit. I lost and have no hard feelings ab it. I just thought this pitch speed fluctuation should be investigated a bit more closely.
Somethings really off.. I'm workin on putting two clips side by side for comparison with hal. I'm a newbie to this editing stuff but I'll update this post once I do
yeah pitching needs a slight tweak. This is a good start though. I worry they'll see absurd offensive numbers and patch hitting again... Hope they realize that they can have the perfect game with some pitching improvement. If i had to choose I'd leave hitting the same and just improve pitching accuracy. if i release late the ball should drop below the intended location ALWAYS and vice versa. This is the first show where that isn't the case

@Oachs83 said in Unwritten rules in online play:
I will not throw you a high sinker unless you start spamming them. See it more in events and nothing but eye rolling when your very first pitch to me is a high inside sinker. That’s when I warm up my two primary sinker relievers and you will get the same treatment.
I get it can be an accident once in awhile but when it’s the first pitch of the game then two more follow it’s not. That being said usually the players that resort to pitching this way are not that great and it’s mostly an easy W.

did you buy him originally or did you make world series and you selected him?
World series. Was selling for 155k. Wanted to wait for a possible stub sale and this happened
Love to see it
The Pitchers confidence/energy was likely zero/close to it
