Everyone is going to have their own opinion on this one but i truely believe at the end of the day this game is supposed to be fun for everyone at every level, its baseball! There are so many homeruns hit in real baseball now and i think it should be reflected in the game as well but i understand the problems it creates online. I feel the hitting should have been toned down more online and not so much offline where the grind is already real.
Moments and showdowns and conquest take forever in a nurfed offensive world and we all suffer the same, its psychological warfare with myself between being patient and hurrying up to get the mission done lol.
I just played my first couple games after the patch and its definitely alot less fun. I just want to have fun. Why must they tinker with such a core part of the game so early after its released. They tinker so often with the dynamics of this game its hard to play a full year without noticeable differences in feel.
Ive played every year since 06 but the last few years I feel the game has been amazing at launch then falls off as the year goes as far as gameplay. The content is amazing and the layers of gameplay is second to none, the team building and collecting is better then any sports game out there, its the gold standard but the fighting in the community over gameplay is unbelievable.
Online hitting should be tinkered with more often then offline, Id rather be able to finish missions with a consistent level of playing and online be more variable based on skill and team ratings.
Anyways thanks to anyone to take time to read my rant. Back to the grind! Be safe, be kind. Except to the astros, they still cheated! Go A's! And bring back pre patch hitting to the offline grind please and thank you.
