I haven't said much but it's becoming more and more out of control the pitches in the dirt. The angle you see from behind the plate it's extremely difficult to pickup a four seam and most definitely I believe it's a two seam fastball in the dirt. It's also pretty bad when multiple pitches hitting the dirt 3-4 feet before the plate...not real life... actually a pitcher would be yanked...plus if pitch hits the dirt that soon wouldn't you think there would be more passed balls... I think we as players need to see the pitches from the catchers view. And also I think problem is too.. the pitching is not valued on this game. Just one example if it were we would have pitching boosts to counter act the batting boosts. There is more to baseball than seeing how many runs can be scored. You all at Glu take away 3/4 of the strategy of baseball with marginalizing the pitching. Good pitching (not TSB MLB 2017 pitching that pitching sucks) will ALWAYS beat out great hitting 9 1/2 times out of 10! I think whatever improvements you do for the 2018 version the player should control the pitching. I gotta say I'm very mixed on 9 innings 2017 but they got it right with the player having full autonomy of his team. You have full control of pitch selection and location to full and complete control of your lineup. Glu you all charge outrageous prices for your products but give us so little in return. I know you all gave us the token season mode, a nice addition but a drop in the bucket. Another place where 9 innings 2017 has got you all on too... is they have all kinds of options for there products, something for ALL budgets. I'm sure they don't have the hacks and cheats you all have because great players are accessible to everyone the playing field is level or at least more so than with this game. I think I might be talking myself into jumping ship here. Not to mention you log in EVERYDAY you get FREE GOOD and TANGIBLE stuff, the last day of the month you login you get (get ready for this because players of this game will NEVER see this happen) a diamond player the top of the line for just logging in everyday for a month and then it starts over again. Why would there be a need for cheating with a setup like that? With the prices you all charge at Glu we as players should be getting at LEAST something premium like that, we SHOULD be getting something better for the prices you all charge and yet we get so little in return. Instead we get scared for fear of being jailed and not being able use our accounts after some of us ( leaving myself out because all I do is watch ads and do offers because I won't pay the insane prices on their products) paid hard earned real life money.
