Legend Hitting too easy this year?

I've always been a Zone Hof hitter for the past few years. I skipped 2019 and didn't play much last year, so I've gotten worse. But this year I've had to move up from HOF to Legend, and I'm still dominating/finding it too easy. I strikeout enough, but I just find that I really get a hold of the ball super easily.

Small sample size, and playing with the Cubs but anyone else feel the same way?

Re: Legend Hitting too easy this year?

100 % It's been too easy to square up pitches, and the ball really seems to carry. The post from one of the developers in the patch 1.05 thread pretty much confirms for me that this may have been the approach to match the 2019 MLB season.

I'll be adjusting sliders at some point. (currently on default)

Edit:The comment from the developer is actually in the "too many home runs" thread.

I guess I just don't like where baseball has gone over the years.

Re: Legend Hitting too easy this year?

It definitely is much easier this year. I too was zone HOF last year, but lost interest in my franchise because I had an unrealistically good record with the White Sox, so I planned on moving to legend this year. I have, and hitting is much easier than expected. Iím 4-4 in spring training even though my ERA is worst in the majors. My batting average isnít overly high, but I lead the league in HR.

I noticed it right away. I've been able to mitigate this issue and get it dialed in for me with sliders fortunately.

Re: Legend Hitting too easy this year?

How many of yall that find legend batting too easy are using default pitch speeds and or default timing?



Use max the pitch speeds and lower the timing one or tow clicks and tell me if batting is too easy.

Iím playing on dynamic difficulty and this is the first year that Iíve ever reached legend hitting. Iím using the Jays and find patience really paying off this year. Iím having huge success in 3-1/3-2 counts.

I recommend having pitch speed sliders on breaking balls one notch below the fastball slider
