I am strictly a zone hitting and pure analog pitching guy. And I made a subtle change to how I okay that has made all the difference in the world. Usually I keep the thumbsticks towards the middle part of my thumbs kind of where the middle knuckle is. It's what has always been comfortable to me. But I wasn't happy that I could never seem to hit the spots I wanted to while pitching, or really square up the ball while hitting. So I decided to place the thumbsticks towards the top of my thumbs instead. Good lord! What a difference! I can now control pitches a whole lot better and I'm more accurate with the reticle placement while hitting, which is leading to better contact and more hits! It felt weird at first but now I'm getting used to it and loving it! It's crazy how one subtle change can affect how you play.
