I had room to pull the sliders back and make it more realistic as I improved. However, my first game with these slider post patch has netted me nothing but singles and an occasional double. Balls that I normally crushed were routine flyballs. So in an effort to see if I can adjust this, I moved the power slider all the way to 100 and played 2 more games and still only hit flares and singles with one doule to the gap. I crushed the ball on 3-4 different occasions and it only hit the wall 2-3 feet up from the ground. None of hits really feel powerful now. It's like they seriously de-juiced the ball.


Any suggestions? Anyone else noticing a "major" drop in power?
Yep, I noticed this too pre and post patch. EVerything was a lazy ground ball or pop up. I changed my slider settings a bit and in one game I did see an improvement but not quite sure if its where I want it to be. I put the Success slider at 65, Contact at 20 and power at 100.... I use classic hitting so dont know if it'll work the same with the other styles.... But with these settings I was finally able to hit a homer, some shots in the gap and 2 shots off the wall.

For those who are seeing a lack of power: are you using the left stick to influence fly balls at all? I notice that homeruns are now quite rare unless I use it.

Thanks, that helped a lot. Definitely a good start to working the sliders for my level of play.

I think they finally got home runs right. I have hit about 5 in my last 3 games. The ones i hit were not 550 ft shots by Casey Blake either. Though he did hit one, but it was accurate.

So much more realistic at least online with this patch.

I'm frustrated this afternoon.

Pre-patch, I misplayed a ball to the outfield once during two dozen games. I misplayed three balls in two games this afternon. Ironic, I know.
