first pitch meatballs....bug?

So I've played 3 full games and then first few innings of 2 or 3 others to test this out...

I really hate to cry wolf, but this seems to be a pretty consistent issue. The CPU throws first pitch strikes on nearly every at-bat. I'm not talking just strikes, I'm talking outright, fastball meatballs. My study isn't scientific, and I don't have an exact count, but especially in the first few innings this is a problem. The first pitch of the ball game has been a meatball every game. You can literally sit on the first pitch and hammer it.

I have yet to tease out whether the CPU can adapt, but its a problem that I can jump out to an easy, fat lead.

Anyone else experiencing this? This strikes me as a huge problem.

What mode are you playing in, and what difficulty?

bump your difficulty up a little. Last year I was playing on veteran and was getting fairly accurate results and I found for this year I had to bump to up to All-Star to get those same results. Just my findings so far through 5 games.

Actually, I'm noticing the same issue. Hall of Fame in RTTS.

"You can literally sit on the first pitch and hammer it"

You say that, but...are you actually doing it? The AI DOES adapt in this game to situations like this (it explains in the in-game strategy guide). If it sees you taking deep strikes, It's not going to worry as much about trying to paint the corners and just come after you. Swing at those (and hit them solidly) and the AI will be more cautious, try to pick the corners more and get you to chase. In short, you get a more balanced approach from the AI when you have good plate coverage.

I'll post exactly where it says this in the guide if I need to.

Same here. Its fine in regular games, but in RTTS the first pitch is almost always right down the middle. Playing on HOF too.

Re: first pitch meatballs....bug?

Its happening in my All star settings in RTTS. I now have 12 HRs and most are first pitch. Ive played 17 games. The first week of the season I hit at least a home run a game and had 3 in one game. Im crushing everything, at least last year they intentionally walked me more when Id crush for a few games..guess my scouting report isnt out there yet.
