Angry So, just use directional hitting now?

Cuz holy hell, that way of hitting seems OP as hell right now... People are hitting anything that even grazes the strike zone. I played mlb 16 for a long time, so i know what im doing, and the whole time i played it i used zone hitting, i tried the same thing now, and im struggling getting the ball past the infield even on green swings..

The moment i switched to directional, no1 can throw the ball in the strikezone or its gone.

Also as a side note, contact swing seems OP, if you ever need a hit just use contact swing and not normal swing, contact seems broken right now.

Re: So, just use directional hitting now?

I completely agree here. I'm zone plus analog but pitching wise I'm getting RAKED. And I consistently have an era around 2.5 on previous shows .

Balls high out of the strike zone going for home runs. It's outta this world . Wish I had picture proof , but trust me won't take long to find some .

Re: So, just use directional hitting now?

This is interesting. I've always used zone and I'm not hitting well with it so far.

I switched over to directional for my last game about half way through and think I got like 5-6 hits. No home runs though. I was the Indians, and they mash so I don't know if that's a proper evaluation.

I'll try it with a bad hitting team and report back.

What is the key to using directional? I'm not sure the best way to move the analog before swinging with the button. Do you just move it in the direction of the pitch?

Re: So, just use directional hitting now?

I've been experimenting with hitting as well. Used Zone in all the mLB games but this year I am very terrible at it. I switched to analog tonight and did a little better. But on Directional, I was getting very good swings and hits.

So for me right now it's directional as in zone i am terrible.
