Veteran Hitting/All Star Pitching

Anyone have a good recommendation? I was going to start at default for each and work from there, but I figured to see if anyone had a good base to start at. Thanks.

I think a good start for all star pitching is straight default with user control at 4 and user consistency at 6. Control at 5 I threw too many strikes.

This is using the classic interface though. It would be a completely different experience using any other pitching interface.

Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses but the only issue I have had with hitting at Veteran is I can't lock my sliders in. The power fluctuates and there are games with 8+ HR's. On All-Star I have to really focus and still have games I strikeout 10+. On Veteran the hitting marker is so large with the outer circle all that is needed is a simple timed swing. On All-Star I'm forced to track the ball and make a decision.

You bump into sim & fun vs skill here tho, which can be a tricky subject. For instance I donít think I should have to bust my butt just to get a decent walk rate and hit .290 with a superstar.

On AS if Iím not intensely focused pretty much all the time I hit like .233 as a team, nobody sniffing any awards, nobody even having an interesting season, just me and my skills, which are average at best. Iím not hitting .344 or hitting 50 HRs with anyone, ever. At least on Veteran I can enjoy myself a little, even if itís a little easy at times.

And itís not even that itís easy, my BA and power numbers are actually really great on Vet, itís that I know Iím gonna lead the league in fewest walks and fewest strikeouts guaranteed before the season starts. Thatís the problem with vet, at least if youíre playing every game.
