CPU pitchers wonít throw balls

For some reason, the CPU will only throw strikes. Every pitch is on the zone. They do not try to fool me by throwing a waste pitch outside of the zone, neither do they have any accuracy issues when trying to paint the corners. Every pitch is in the zone.

I just played a game where the starter threw 98 pitches, and every one of them was in the zone.

Itís really frustrating and I donít know what to do. Iíve tried adjusting sliders and editing a few pitchers accuracy attributes, but nothing is working.

I had started a thread on this in the Rosters section because I imagined it had some thing to do with using a 1999 roster set I downloaded, but apparently thatís not the case as the problem still exists.

I play offline franchise 95% of the time and I lead the league in walks. Must just be your game.

Re: CPU pitchers wonít throw balls

I lowered the cpu strike frequency a notch or 2.

98/98 strikes is something Iíve never seen or heard so Iíll chalk that up to some sort of random glitch.

But try lowering the CPU strike frequency. Everyoneís game plays and feels different you may need to go even lower than you already are.

Good luck.

Re: CPU pitchers wonít throw balls

If I may ask, what difficulty are you using? Dynamic, all star, HOF, Legend?

Ok. That's really weird then. I was thinking if you were using dynamic, it might have something to do with it. I use HOF for both, and I have the opposite effect lol. They try to paint the black so much they throw more balls then strikes. Are you using a slider set, or default, or just some random adjustments? Is this in a franchise?
Thanks. Home town team. Love the tribe for 35+ years

Re: CPU pitchers wonít throw balls

Difficulty level can affect how many in the zone pitches you see as well. I personally prefer dynamic difficulty. and to reiterate what Ace says knock CPU K frequency to zero and for extra effect put CPU Control and Consistency to 10. then work backwards to default 5 on all 3 if zero on frequency and 10 on Control and Consistency provides TOO many walks

Re: CPU pitchers wonít throw balls

Thanks for the input guys, but I know what was causing it.

Somehow, my hitting difficulty was on Beginner. I never switched it over, so I don’t know how that happened. Once I switched it over to Dynamic and then Veteran, the CPU started throwing some outside pitches.

Now I can get back to playing my 1999 season and try to win it all with my Metsies (least amount of errors in a season (33) by an infield in the history of baseball).
