A brand-new Baseball Clash Balance Patch is here!
Before we get to the changes in version 1.2, please keep in mind our goal with these updates is to make Baseball Clash fairer and more enjoyable for everyone! We’re always looking at our data, checking your feedback, and investigating what needs to change to improve the gameplay experience for everyone!
⚾ GAMEPLAY CHANGES
After update 1.2, if you throw the ball to the correct base when a runner is trying to steal, your fielder on that base will automatically throw to the next base for much smoother pickoffs.
Previously, a split-second of hesitation could allow a successful steal from a high-speed runner. This change will really speed up fielding and help players prevent those pesky pickoffs if they can accurately predict their opponent’s next play!
Improved Pitcher Behaviour
Pitchers now crouch to avoid hits that might hit them in the head!
Before this, the closer a batter got to a ‘best timing’ hit, as shown in the below screenshot, the higher the chance of the ball flying at the pitcher’s head, being automatically caught and used to take the batter out.
This change should make batting fairer, but we’ll keep monitoring to make sure!
⚾ PLAYER CHANGES
Ibrahimovic - Ability Upgrade
Ibrahimovic was designed as a batter who can easily shut down sneaky sidearm pitchers, but our data shows he’s spending a lot of time sidelined on the bench.
To get Ibrahimovic back into the diamond, and with a big apology to sidearm pitching fans, we’ve supercharged his Sidearm Killer skill from a lowly Contact +18 to a lofty Contact +36.
Time for Ibrahimovic to step into the spotlight!
Wang - Ability Upgrade
Wang dreams of putting a stop to every underthrow pitcher ever, but he can’t do that sitting in the dugout!
To get him back into the action, we’ve overhauled his Underthrow Killer ability, moving from Contact +18 to Power +36.
Why not give Wang a spot in your squad and let his Kung Fu stylings shine?
Rodriguez - Ability Upgrade
For reasons unknown, Rodriguez hates left-handed pitchers as much as he hates hassle, but he absolutely loves fielding against them!
Unfortunately, he’s not getting as many games as he’d like lately, so we’re lending him a helping (right) hand!
We’re updating Rodriguez’ Left Arm Killer skill, switching from a cool Contact +12 to a punishing Power +24.
Those left-handed pitchers won’t know what hit ‘em!
Michael - Ability Upgrade
Michael is a famous Baseball Clash outfielder, but players haven’t been too positive about his skill build. Luckily, we can help - it’s time for a long-overdue Michael overhaul!
To keep him swinging like a pro, we’re giving Michael’s Right Arm Killer skill a massive boost, from Contact +9 to Contact +18! Double the Contact, triple the threat!
We hope this update increases the odds of Michael trying out on your team!
And that’s everything we’ve rolled into Balance Patch v1.2!
