2020 End of Cycle- What was FIXED this year?

SDS

Nothing.

You know it and I know it

Pitching, fielding, base running, the list goes on..

This year was my last. This isn't a leaving post. No I'll be around to critique and laugh at the rest of you crying about a company that doesn't care at all pretending like you don't know it's clearly a rigged joke shell of its former self

Please buy 21 so you can experience the cross platform torture at my entertainment

Looking forward to the laughs...

They did patch fielding though. It was so bad on release.

SDS

Lol.....

SDS

Fielding got worse. Pitch command got worse.

But let's be real and give them credit where it's due: catcher attributes matter this year more than they have in recent memory.

SDS

I’ll be buying it again, but GD, please fix pitching accuracy. It is so hit and miss from one game to the next. I don’t care about the hitting because runs will be scored, but give the pitchers a chance.

SDS

Constantly find myself wondering when the bad attitudes get patched and the constructive criticism algorithm works. For instance, 700 hours of horrible gameplay data should be able to produce some tangible feedback in the right context.

Was about to type this, they did fix blocking.

SDS

I’m sorry but there is ZERO way fielding is worse. The first couple weeks, the fielders would lock onto the ball just to have it hit their face, they would do a quick 360 and catch it off the bounce for an out

SDS

Also while I wouldn't exactly say hitting is in a good place, I would say it is improved over 19. You couldn't go past 3 posts without someone referencing lineouts in 19

I meant it's worse this year than in prior years. It's definitely not worse than it was the first couple weeks, but it's definitely much worse this year than it was in prior years.

Unfortunately they replaced all the backstops with trampolines. Every wild pitch/passed pall that makes it to the screen seems to rebound right back to the catcher at about 100mph

Anybody feel like bunting took a couple steps back this year? Not saying we have to go back to how it was in 18 or 19 when their fix for bunting was a rocket to a fielder just so nobody could bunt for base hits anymore, but this year 90 percent of bunts with players with decent bunting ability are going for hits. This can't be realistic, have to find a happy medium here. Maybe make it to where you have to move the pci while bunting to make it more challenging.

I second that! Pitch command is the worst it’s ever been in any year!!! Not even close!

Agreed!

I bet you're super fun at parties.

SDS

They gave first base coaches carbon fiber shins that ricochet errant pickoff attempts right back to the 1st baseman, so that's a plus.
