How in the world did you manage that? I get called for going around 90% of the time even if I only pressed the button for a millisecond. Itís absolutely infuriating how stupid they made the check swinging this year.

What hitting mechanic are you using?

I use zone hitting and its roughly a 50/50 coin flip as to whether I checked up or went around.

Re: "And a checked swing, did he go around??? ..."

Definitely 1000% more difficult this year to check swing. I swear I press the x button same pressure I did MLB 20 and it says I went around. Getting used to it and I've gotten better, but it's taken me almost 70 games to get to that point lol. I will admit last year it was far too easy as it was very rare I was called for a strike so it did need to be harder, they just went a tad overboard with it imo.

Oh its definitely 1000% harder than last year

But while it may be less forgiving, and even need to be balanced a bit more, its an improvement over '20 and '19 because I could damn near press the button all the way down and the ump wouldn't ring me up. I would be shocked, absolutely shocked (yes I borrowed from Mark DeRosa) if a check swing was called a strike in '20.

Now curious as to what hitting mechanic you use?

Please know I'm not trying to discredit your experience nor anyone else's, I'm curious if its more "out of balance" with one hitting mechanic versus another.

Another question, does adjusting any sliders (timing window) help with the issue?

Iím with you , i like the fact itís harder now. My complaint is they disconnected the Discipline rating from the formula.

No issues if itís more realistic but some hitters are better than others and itís not factored anymore :-(
