Wind impact on homeruns?

With opening day here I found myself inspired to fire up the show for the first time in 3 months. I honestly gave up on it due to some gameplay issues that really made it hard to enjoy for me. Way too many homeruns! I hit way too many and the cpu also hits a few too many but not as many as me (Yankees on legend stride zone analog)

So first game of my franchise reboot.. 4 homeruns for my team and the orioles hit 3.
Not a great impression leading me to believe the issue of too many homers is still there even after multiple patches since I last played.

What has caused this spike in this years game? Can the wind slider help? It was blowing out 10mph for the game I just played

Play more than one game and see if itís a pattern. If so, lower the power sliders.

I had played like 30 games or so prior to my 2 month hiatus and it was the same thing

Wind does have a big effect on home runs. I lower it to 2 or 3 max and it makes a big difference. At default, you will get a hr fest.

Try altering sliders to see if that helps any.

I play with everything at default and don't see the abundance of homeruns others have seen. Some games are slugfests and other times I'll go a game or even two without seeing a single homerun.

I'd try the wind slider and/or the solid hits slider to start.

Re: Wind impact on homeruns?

I think that the wind slider is part of the equation to tone down power to a realistic level. I'm about 75 games into a franchise and have CPU power at 4 (-1), user power at 3 and wind at 4.

I like the results I'm getting. As information I play on veteren level.

What difficulty are you playing on?
