Analog throwing (fielding) unforgiving.

I know it's been brought up and that it is because the sticks of the dual shock 4 are more sensitive but I just can't play the game this way anymore and that shouldn't be their intention.

I love analog throwing (feels more natural than buttons) and on the ps3 I was in between veteran and all-star. But now on the ps4 I even have a hard time on rookie!

Especially throwing to second base is almost always a guaranteed yellow throw for me. I've tested this back to back with only watching my finger flick the stick true north but still it ends up a yellow throw.

Please tone down the difficulty a little bit because I'm forced to play with button throwing now

Does anyone else feel my pain?

Loving the game besides this by the way!

Thanks.

Re: Analog throwing (fielding) unforgiving.

Yes this is infuriating and needs to be tuned or patched. This is about the 10th thread i've seen started on this issue and its not just analog. I've seen some people experiencing the same thing with button throwing also and every thread ends in "turn down to rookie difficulty". That's insane that you have to tune the difficulty that low to make simple routine throws in the infield. I don't want to play with buttons because it's boring. I already play classic pitching but i like analog for battig and fielding. Why on earth they changed this is mind-boggling.

I just set it to where there is no meter and it just relies on how hard you direct the joystick. I haven't thrown many away at all and it has been working smoothly. I forget the exact option but its the one where it wont allow you to change difficulty its all about feel.

^^^ agreed. I turn the meter off, and have no problems, the only throwing errors I have made so far was trying to throw out a runner stealing 2nd base, and one throw from third to first that bounced right before it got to the first baseman.

Re: Analog throwing (fielding) unforgiving.

I'm doing alright now that I moved it down to Veteran (off the HOF level I played on PS3). It is definitely tougher to hit the right angles, though.

I made 5 throwing errors in my first game on All-Star. And still won somehow.

Re: Analog throwing (fielding) unforgiving.

It would sure help if there was a way to practice fielding, but it doesn't seem like there is any such mode in the game. Is there any type of work around for this like trying to play a two player vs game by yourself and having a chance to try throwing the ball around the infield, or something like that?

I have done this myself, and it has made things easier. Hopefully, I will be able to bump it up to All-Star after awhile. Saw that Ramone suggested this in another thread as well, due to the sensitivity of the sticks.
