I am more than convinced that this is the main issue why everything is broken in the show. Ever since this new feature was impliminted into the game the last 3 years this game has been all messed up. Pitching, hitting. I can lay you money this is why. Need to rebuild the engine from the ground up, revert back to 16 and not touch anything after that.

Make pitch speeds and PCI size HOF setting from Wild Card up. Its a complete crapshoot playing in lower divisons this year. Vision stats do not matter one bit also being in the lower divisions. I get that SDS wants to appeal to the casual player, but make HOF settings lower moving forward. What is the point of pitch speeds being increased if you cant even make it to higher divisions when everything is broken.

Balls thrown in the dirt or out of strike zone should not be allowed to be smacked for a single or bloop hit a player to death.

Might be onto something there with the ball physics.

Bloop hits bounce over the outfielder’s head. We are not playing on AstroTurf. We are not playing on the moon.

This game barely has any physics at all.

They don't really dynamically calculate where the ball will go based on the math involved. It's just a bunch of lookup tables with a limited number of outcomes.

i agree with the difficulty except i think we should be able to choose our difficulty. i don't want to start on all-star because good baseball is just not rewarded, the hitting physics are best on display on the higher settings as i believe there is more outcomes.

In 17 we complained there was too much topspin. Now there doesn't seem to be any topspin or backspin, which I think is creating alot of the hitting issues

too much topspin, then too much backspin, then not enough of either,  hmmmmm.

I agree with the ball physics possibly affecting hitting

It’s just too much everything. So much math going on, and then tweaks to the math. It’s a real shame how fast this year’s game has gone from being a shining hope to same old frustration.

The lineouts that carry endlessly into the fielder’s glove are the proof to me that we are pretty much back in 18. At launch there were sinking liners that got down for hits.

Yeah yesterday I hit 2 sinking liners that never sank
