This game is legitimately terrible

I’ve been playing this game since the first the show in 06. The gameplay is abysmal compared to the last couple shows. The pitch speeds, the fielding, the hitting and many other aspects just don’t compare to years past... what a poor job done by SDS.

SDS and screwing up a game with a patch, name a more iconic duo

The pitching is nothing but the game controlling your location...on perfect release too.

Go ahead and say it SDS, you removed user input to influence outcomes. Why else would this be happening? That’s a question that needs to be answered.

Unfortunately we all know the answer.

I believe that this game will eventually be great. They’re not fixing things fast enough it’s terrible right now

The hitting was literally perfect pre patch, no idea why they adjusted that instead of pitch location and pci size. Now it’s a dice roll on how you’re gonna hit a ball. Only issue pre patch was throwing meter and pitch location, but they added so many more things to the point where the game is unplayable now, it was SOOOO fun pre patch. I’m glad Sony Partners and others like Your Friend Kyle are calling for the change to be made to revert hitting and fix pitching

EA says hold my beer

Literally trading it in tomorrow. I cant play ranked seasons and im a big fan of the show but this year is a mega fail. It leaves me to believe they were focusing on next year considering the arrival of ps5 & xbox live being able to play the game.

Spot on, I was playing for countless FUN hours a day before the patch. Now I just sit around angry cause I don't want to play this game anymore. This patch was awful for everybody, but it made the game almost unplayable for mediocre to bad players. Wish I had not bought digital so I could sell or attempt a refund, cause I don't want to play the game in this state anymore. I feel like SDS took my hard earned 100 bucks and gave me the finger by changing their game after taking our money.

What was going wrong that made the developers decide they needed to change something?

I wasted 87 bucks on this game.. I don't know why they mess the hitting up every year with a patch. The hitting was fine before the patch, now it's made the game less fun.

The people on the forums and complaining about something. Not a dig, I’m guilty too

I've played this game since 06 and before it was called the show and 20 is horrible... I don't know why, but every 2020 sports games suck! Madden 20, NBA 2k20, MLB the show 20, WWE 2k20, FIFA 20..... SDS, please fix the game(hitting) back to how it was before the patch.

Fielding not much better. My center fielder just ran in on a line drive and took it off the chest.

100% mate this is a great thread I hope SDS can sit and digest all of this feedback from us who play it every day

THIS

Additionally, I don't know about you guys or if I'm alone in this, but I've noticed that I've been getting dribbled, bled, and blooped to death against bad hitters.
