Hey guys. With all the different control selection in this years show, it is difficult to choose the best one. I have made a decision to use classic controls because it is easier for the entire league from beginners to veterans to give everyone a fair chance at being able to compete. We will still have guess pitch off so PLEASE practice using these setting as we all have a learning curve to overcome. Let me what you all think.

Thanks,
Dan

What exactly do you mean by classic controls?

Classic controls were the fundamental controls from 09 and 10. Batting type is zone, which means you line your plate coverage indicator (Transparent Yellow circle)to where the ball is hitting the strike zone. Then you hit with the face buttons. This year they added a contact swing (circle) and moved the bunting command to triangle. Square is still power and X is a normal swing.

Pitching is simple with these controls. Select the pitch you want, select a location you would like (remember to account for the break of the pitch) then press X to throw. Theres no meters or timing based requirements. Just pick, place and pitch.

Fielding is simple as well. Your face buttons are set up just like the infield is. Circle first, Triangle second, and others alike. If you play road to the show these controls are backwards to them so i recommend that you practice in exhibitions or change the controls of RTTS. This is optional.

I understand we all likely use different controls. I myself prefer the new Pure Analog system as it helps with timing my swing, but i want everyone to be able to compete and i feel these controls are the easiest way for that to happen. Anymore questions please ask.


Thank You

The game only allows the leagues to use one general setting for the entire league. They do not allow individual control settings. That's why I had to make these standard for the league.

I think it's a good idea to keep the classic controls as well, I have to say I personally prefer pure analog controls but I practiced with the classic ones today and I have to say they're pretty simple to get used too.
Thanks for the heads up on that matter Dan, I was going to bring up the controls question Wink

We are using the Classic controls for our league. Classic controls are used for all aspects of the game, Pitching,Fielding and Batting.

The way the classic controls work for the pitching aspect is very simple. There are no meters or analog based timing used in these controls. First you pick your pitch, then you place the pitch where you would like it, then press X to throw the pitch. Velocity,break and location are all dependent on the condition of your energy,confidence and who's up to bat of course. So it's a very simple and effective way to pitch. Hope this clears it up.

Sorry maybe im an idiot but last year controls were meter for pitching, Correct? Are you saying theres an option were you pick pictch and then throw it whereever you want witout having to hit x at certain time to pitch. IF thats the case wouldnt you throw every pitch exactly where you want every single time. Sorry if i making this difficult, just making sure i understand all rulles and settings.

The meter was a default contril setting last year, but classic controls were there as well. Yes this allows you to have more control of your pitches.

Dan,

This is just for discussion.....

So why would we take Guess Pitch off to make it more realistic and harder to hit and then take away the pitching meter which make pitching much easier.

The current default setting for online "Play Now" is the meter and it adds some skill as if you miss the meter its normally a meatball or way out of the zone. (kind of like hanging a curveball).

Just my 2 cents.

Maybe I'm just used to Meter Pitching and Guess Pitch, so I'm a little bias Smile

Your pitches will still miss the zone, hang and break differently everytime, this is just the way I have decided to do it so its easy from beginners to experts.

I gotcha. thanks for clarifying. I would really like meter though but thats cool i guess. I just feel a pitcher cant always throw a pitch exactly where he wants to. on a full count its way more fun to have a slight challenge when trying to throw a strike. Not complaining. jsut my 2 cents..

I'm not sure I like the way this league is being run. Your not giving anyone an opinion on anything. People are coming and making suggestions on free agents and rules and your just shrugging them off because you want them that way. Maybe instead of just denying us things you could open it up for discussion and voting. Seems as if we have no say in anything here. I mean one button pitching is retarded IMO.

I will play whatever ....but I believe the meter would be better. If you are able to place pitches directly on the corner every time it will make hitting even more difficult. If you check player cards most players are batting in the .100's as it is.

ya, id have to agree with the guys as well...the meter makes the game more interesting. If my vote counts, that is. Plus guess pitch is how i play so i vote that too (even though i know we arent voting)

18 Meter vs Classic on Mon Mar 21, 2011 12:37 pm

Lets not bash Dan, he is setting all this up and running the league.

I would vote for guess pitch on and meter pitching. I think these make it the most realistic. If we can't have both I am cool with the Guess Pitch off but would really like to have Meter Pitching.

I tried pitching with Classic controls last night and to be honest, it kinda "sucked". Even a monkey could pitch using classic controls.

On another note.....WE START TOMORROW !!!!!!

Im not bashing anyone. Im just saying the default controls for online play are set to "Meter" for pitching and "buttons" for batting. Why change it, its what most people are used to. I dont know of anyone pitching with classic controls.

From what i can tell i believe the league allows you to use the control settings in your online user settings. This would be great if it works.

I dont see why it wouldn't really. I mean they just implemented the new analog stuff they cant expect everyone to agree on a certain way to do it, atleast I hope not lol
