Re: Hr's down after patch

So If you if bump it up +1 on both solid hits and power... where are your sliders at now. Both at 6 or 7 ... what ? I'M curious. I want the game to have a realistic feel.. I rarely simulate a full game ... maybe an inning or two. I don't want to bump the sliders too too much and the game feel like a slugfest each and every game.

I don't see this issue. Homers are now balanced and it finally feels rewarding to hit them.

I agree... game is playing really well... other than the odd ball going through my bat ( actually happens more often now)

I had all the sliders at default and I just bumped up power and solid contact by +1. Its only been 10 games or so, but the numbers seem more realistic for me so far. If anything pre-patch I was hitting too many, although who doesn't like hitting lots of homeruns???

Essentially what Solid Hits does is make you hit more line drives on squared up pitches instead of popups or lazy flys, so it will increase HRs, but it will also make your batting average go up a bit. For me, this is ideal because, after the patch, I was seeing a lot of balls that should be smoked just end up as weak outs, so I was seeing less extra base hits in general...so this did the trick, in addition to increasing Power + 1.

Yep, just + 1 from the default on both (Power and Solid Hits).

Good to hear man. I'm seeing the exact same thing in terms of results. Absolutely loving the hitting with these simple adjustments. I'm hitting at least 1 HR per game, sometimes more, but also seeing more doubles in the gap, which I felt was lacking before as well.

Re: Hr's down after patch

It's definitely nerfed online from the sample size i played today 6/19. There probably testing hitting stealthy to get a feel of the community to arrive at a medium going forward. There is more % of hits like bloopers that outfielders cant get to, hits down the lines, and into the gap hits. A lot more pop ups, and weak fly balls. Scores have been like 1 - 0, 2 - 1 , 3- 1 type games. I hit 1 home run in each of the 3 games.

Re: Hr's down after patch

Well I gotta take back what I said, maybe it's a fluke but first game since commenting that power seemed down I went out and hit 4 HR's, racked up 15 hits and scored 13 runs in a 13-3 victory. I didn't change anything, figured I'd give it another few games before making any changes and glad I did. It wasn't just the top end power hitters that hit HR's either as Brett Lowrie (62 power), Robinson Cano (53 power) and Mitch Haniger (65 power) all hit HR's as well as Nelson Cruz (99 power) all off of LHP hence why Cano's power was so low.
