Timing hitting back?

I noticed that thereís a option for timing hitting? I havenít seen that in about what, six years or so? Iím wondering if it would be easier or harder compared to directional hitting.

Re: Timing hitting back?

I thought the only real difference in timing and directional is with timing you're not trying to influence the direction of where you hit. I wonder if there is something else to go along with that to make it worthwhile calling 2 different modes

Thereís got to be some difference considering you donít have to influence direction with directional hitting. Iím just not sure what that would be.

I believe the pci automatically moves to a favorable position essentially and you are just influencing the timing portion

I have used timing hitting every year though MLBTS 20. I didn’t get the game last year so I can’t speak to that. (I’m old) ��

You can still influence the direction of the batted ball by swinging early / late just like irl.

Not necessarily favorable. Itís based on the playerís vision rating.

Re: Timing hitting back?

Im happy timing is in each its own now. I am using timing and i love it. It remind me of the old triple play days and mvp. Directional was cool but i always felt if I didnít aim correctly i would miss out. But with timing its like user timing in nba 2k. I love it.

There is? I honestly didn't scroll thru the options and just settled on Directional since that's what Timing sort of evolved into.
