Gameplay:

  • Pitcher's HR/9 will no longer influence exit velocities. 

 

Whaaa???

Think this will have a big effect?

Oh my 0.o They aren't done making game adjustments.

9/22/2019 9:21PM PDT

That’ll put this debate to rest. Let’s hope this fixes it, but I’m not hopeful. Whatever they did in patch 1.12 was what they need to reimplement, game played really well for a short while after that patch.

We all know, regardless of the outcome, someone will make a post "they made the gameplay worse". Set your watch to it.

9/22/2019 9:25PM PDT

At least they are accepting that their game is hardly playable and are trying something instead of just sitting on their hands.   Hopefully this works.

The biggest complainer of low exit velocities is slugging .825 in ranked series.  So yeah, think about that.

I dont really think hr/9 influences exit velocities as much as h/9, but we will see.  Fingers crossed.

Wow I was shocked they actually did something to try n fix gameplay whaaaat? 

9/22/2019 9:55PM PDT

Cue the "now there's too many HR's" complaints. 

Hitting was actually realistic IMO. Now it's going to be HR Derby like in 18 all over again.

Should help with warning track shots, unlikely it helps with lineouts.  Another effect might be fewer bloop hits.

 

I liked hitting before, but I can roll with whatever they do.

9/22/2019 10:18PM PDT

I'm telling you all now...we complain,  but it's still ahead of madden

9/22/2019 10:36PM PDT

im scare of this

9/22/2019 11:05PM PDT

I’m very glad, hopefully my fully on target pci placement will matter now, and hopefully my opponents will too. 

Its a 2-way street y’all 

9/22/2019 11:09PM PDT

wow, i might actually be able to hit off kershaw for the last moment on moments extreme. literally everything i barrel up dies before it hits the gaps, or is straight away 460 feet. lol

Whatever, I like getting rewarded when I crush a pitch. If that means more 8-6 games, rather than 2-1, I can accept that.  I want to have fun!

9/22/2019 11:26PM PDT

Excited.

This has been something that many of us have discussed. Hopefully it actually works. No matter who you face, Kershaw or bronze Felix Hernandez, if you square something up with someone with a lot of power it shouldn’t have been an 93 mph exit velocity warning track out.

9/22/2019 11:32PM PDT

This is good news

9/23/2019 12:10AM PDT

Wording is so cryptic.  Why not just say hr/9 is being disabled unless I’m misunderstanding.

SS Hamels is a very solid lefty you could replace kershaw with, if you don’t already have him.

Shhhhh. He’s 10-1 for me through 13 starts in RS. Let everyone think he’s trash.

9/23/2019 1:52AM PDT

I hit 3-5 warning track shots a game. Can’t wait for this. Home runs here we come. They bringing back the power.

The attribute does many things including affect exit velos so the took that away there will still be a simulation aspect that's is affected by HR/9

Hey moron, they wouldn't be releasing a patch if there wasn't something wrong.

What’s that got to do with people complaining regardless?

9/23/2019 3:11AM PDT
