Yeah, I don't get it. Now it's essentially '18 with nerfed power, more random hit-types, and lots of fun fielding bugs. And the lineouts... JFC. Who at SDS thinks lining out constantly is an 'engaging' experience?

Only thing I can think of is that since the game was playing more straight up, there were too many instances of newbs getting crushed, at least in SDS' (Big Sony's?) opinion. 

Really wish they'd stop making every decision based on ensuring the top .05% of players have "realistic" stat lines. If the tradeoff for a fun game is the super users hitting .500 and little Timmy getting blown out every tenth game when the matchmaking queue is bare, so be it.

The input lag online is borderline gamebreaking. There's a definite disconnect between what's goin on on-screen and the backend, much like '18.

posted a comment in MLB19 was a very fun game out of the box and then 1.06 broke it.

It's reverted to '18's wiffle ball, but without the homeruns. Very appealing.

It's the randomness. Pitching, hitting, and fielding are now so infused with RNG that you don't feel in control at times and even when you do get positive outcomes, they oftentimes don't align with the input. For me, the hit type RNG that seemingly ignores PCI placement is maddening and really digs to the root of why I'm playing at all.

Ultimately, enjoyment level probably comes down to why you play video games in the first place. If it's pure simulator, you're probably pretty happy with the current version. If you're looking for a competitive outlet that rewards skill and practice... there's better games out there.

Blow into the analog stick housing and it should go away for a while. Pretty sure it's caused by dust... somehow.

Interesting. Would you be willing to elaborate/give an example of finding the starting point off the pitcher?

How is squared up pitches resulting in popups "user friendly"? 

Taking it a step further, how do you ensure your casual/new users don't get said popup on their 1-2 good placements in a game without implementing some sort of DDA?

You're probably moving the PCI too much pre-pitch in H2H due to nerves. Like IRL, make sure you're 'set' as the pitcher releases the pitch.

If you're serious about getting better, record your gameplay in BP and H2H and compare.

That last observation is going to be lost on a lot of folks... but I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. Game seemingly only plays straight up if it thinks you're worse than your opponent.

PCI was never the only thing that dictated the end result. Swing timing and pitch location were always taken into account. They were simply not working correctly in '18.

Just FYI, in the past year or so TVs have pretty much caught up to monitors. Just gotta make sure you buy the 2018 model. Here's a breakdown of the best ones: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/best/by-usage/video-gaming

Can't really do that either. High contact AND power guys would be completely OP and folks would avoid any player that didn't excel at both. Lineup diversity would plummet even more.

Uh...

Played some D1 (yeah, I'm a bigshot). It's the opposite - bloopers just pvss you off and make you focus more as you know you're doing your job and scrubs are getting lucky. Lineouts crush confidence because you know they're on to you and start doubting your stuff/strategy.

It's not that drastic, but you get the picture.

You don't need to practice to play. You just need to practice if you want to be good... like literally everything else in life.
