Have foul balls increased with the patch? That's my biggest gripe....

The best parts of the patch are easily the new variability in the pitches you throw(you no longer have pinpoint accuracy) and the fact that the Inside Edge walk ratings are now corrected.

Jeremey Hermedia crushed a curveball I threw with Ollie Perez, playing on Legend. That was a positive thing to see.

The only thing I hate about Legend is that I feel like my batters are completely neutered.

Im right on a lot of pitches that end up as soft fly balls or shallow liners.

I may have to use the all star user hitter settings on legend difficulty in oreder to get a happy medium.

Or just bump the power up. Before the patch thats what i did. just play legend with user power up a bit.

I'm also re-learning how to pitch. CPU hitters can really crush curveballs now.
Same here on all accounts.

Ahh. How much? Now that I think about it, I think 5 might do the trick. I dont want to make TOO drastic a change.

I think this game plays its best legend with this patch in my opinion.

the patch made the game worse for me. pitch counts are the same, but fly balls are now a problem - it's like all the people who never had a problem are now inheriting the outfielder problem. The patch also reduced power big time, and the pitch difficulty is laughable to me - all it did is make me miss badly on one pitch ouf of 15 or so and the rest is exactly the same as before. All the patch did is create new problems for me.

Re: Major League Baseball 2K9 Official Patch 2 Available, Impressions Here (360 Only)

I'm having some major declines in the HR department since the patch.

I wasn;t hitting them like crazy pre-patch but it was around normal.

Since patch I have power on 100, contact 50, batter succes 45, and I'm having some problems with hrs. I know it might be me sucking, but any tips? Move that contact number up? Batter success up? I just don't want to have tons of hits in a game, just regular amount of hits and hrs. I thought maybe if I turn success up, I might be getting hits in the over 10 realm alot.
