    pulse pitching is really going to make pitching challenging and put more weight onto getting pitchers in TCBL

    Man I was bad enough at analog hitting last year, now I got to use both thumbs :eek:.

    He did say they were giving some leeway on the stride though so that should help me out.

    I never used analog I couldn't do it lol

    I used analog for fielding and pitching but not for batting.

    I kind of like the look of the pulse pitching, but if it's way harder than the other pitching modes, why would anyone choose it? I guess, maybe if you are so sick of a player that you need it to be harder so the games are closer for you... ;)

    We may consider making it a requirement in TCBL this year, but we still need to use it. Your right, classic is way too easy. In theory pulse is more challenging and realistic.

    I would disagree with you there, just ask Fiddy14

    Classic pitching the ball rarely goes where you want it to go, I will go to analog pitching before ever using classic pitching again. Specially if you have a guy that tends to be wild like a Matt Garza you could ain right down the middle and the pitch woud still be 10 feet outside. I will say in years past classic pitching did tend to eliminate lag that people had problems with when using meter pitching

    After the leagues fell apart last year I unfortunately turned the Show in via trade... I'll have to see which it was I preferred... I believe I was a classic guy...

    Classic pitching is 1 button push. You hold down the button for pitch effectiveness and release when the pitchers leg kick is at its highest point. I used meter pitching which is what I've used since MVP baseball.
