Matt Stairs' signature style is getting his *** HAMMERED by guys after a clutch pinch hit. They can't put that in, they needed to keep the rating E for Everyone!

I am finally enjoying this game since the patch this morning. I have played a couple games and nothing really big to complain about yet.

See, I disagree with you here. When a pitcher is pitching IRL, do they see a marker saying how good their gesture was? No. They know how they are doing by the location of the pitch. When you see your pitches all over the place, you know you need to focus more on your gesture, simple as that. Make sure you focus a lot and you'll be ok, but otherwise, I'm really liking the changes via the patch.

I am not making up the meaning

Insider edge influence means exactly what it reads. If it means something else then is false advertising

I don't get what is so hard to figure out when it comes to sliders when the name of each slider and the section they are located at is enough.

But to each his own....keep killing your brains for no reason
Batter success affects a lot more than whether a ball falls in for a hit. The sliders affect more than just the obvious. We need someone who knows the guts of the programming to say exactly what each slider does.

But a big league pitcher can feel if they are releasing early/late, over extending, under torquing, etc. So I can understand the need for some indication of what part I am messing up.

However, I think the post patch pitching is definitely better than pre-patch and it is something that can be adjusted with sliders.

I actually think they got the "feel" pretty good. I can tell as soon as I let go of the pitch whether Ive snapped it off well, or unleashed an "uh-oh" pitch.

1 thing I've notice is the game is now very AI friendly on the higher levels. Not to mention the Gesture Slider while pitching as said is very sensitive.

I do like what the patch has done to the overall feel off the game. I am doing some tweaking to the Sliders & will post those tweaks in a couple of days
