after play testing the game in COTW for the past couple of days I think I can definitively state that the problem with lineouts has to do with how the PCI is registering hits. So what I have found over the course of the last few days is that it is impossible to get good or squared contact when you are under the ball I'm not sure why that is but you guys can all try it out for yourself if you get under the ball with good pci placement the feedback is going to say "okay contact" 90% of the time. Now if you get on top of the ball (even just by a tiny bit) you start to get a whole bunch of "good" and "squared" up contact results and you rarely see the "okay" contact result.

I have a bunch of problems with how this system currently works because it doesn't promote launch angles and does promote more lineouts. But at least I can say that I think that this is the main cause for frustration with this years hitting

Try it out for yourself

You don't need to go to operation sports to look at some guy's conspiracy theory ideas about hitting.  There is a way in the game to look at feedback..  You go to batter analysis and you can see pci contact.  The hit chance goes as high as 15.  On hof+ all 15 and 14 hit chances are almost always outs.  On all-star even against a pitcher with 125 h/9 if you get a 15 squared up pci it is mostly going for a hit.  Hitting is broken hof+.  I have had someone argue that hitting on all-star is no different and broken as well, but they are definitely wrong.  Playing BR and batting against trevor Hoffman, if I get squared up pci its almost always a hit

Yea this seems to generally be the consensus, and I agree as well. The game plays phenomenally on all-star. Once you bump it up to hof all bets are off. They gotta change something, because RS is gonna be a huge turn off for above average players in no time.
