Fielding in this game is atrocious

SDS

During MTO you can't quit or disconect or you get penalized. So why is it that we get punished with atrocious fielding as well in this game? 3 errors like that is backbreaking.

The same goes for online/showdown/ Rtts or conquest.

If a player is under the ball and waiting for it shouldn't it be caught? No in this game it hits either the player in the head or off the glove or for some reason apears 5 feet behind. I'm tired of lossing games on hits that should be caught. It's not a funny thing.

Fielding has got to be fixed. It's unacceptable.

Sorry for the rant i'm just tired of this.

I’ve seen the issues online for sure, but the only fielding issues I’ve had offline is players not locking on to the ball occasionally. I’ve never had them just not catch a ball in conquest, showdown, play vs CPU, etc.

I've deffinetly had it happen in conquest and now MTO not sure about showdown because i actualy havn't used that mode much but i've seen others mention it. I think fielding is just a mess this year. I could be wrong and it could just be lock on issues though.

SDS

Happened a lot to me in MTO, especially with Harper.

SDS

Just happened in showdown. Allowed the team to score which made me fail the mission. Would have been the third out and a win. Now just beat a mission only to have it say "better luck next time" after.

SDS

I guess I’m lucky then. I haven’t seen any of these bugs much, if at all, in offline modes.

SDS

i've seen it for sure a bit in MTO with not locking on the the ball in the OF....but doesnt sound like its anywhere near the mess they have online....thank goodness..

SDS

MTO specific question...I swear I only see it with right fielders. For example, yelich was a mess in my last MTO. Weird stuff. Am I onto something?

My center fielder for the Yankees botched a very easy flyball (guess what it cost me the game are you suprised?) so not just right fielder's doing this.

SDS

My second baseman just twisted his glove hand at 90° angle to miss a routine ground ball in extra innings. MTO scripting is the absolute worst.

SDS

I hope they apply the future patch to MTO also. Fielding is so bad. I had Adam Eaton commit 2 identical errors in the same World Series game that almost cost me the game. Routine fly balls that he didn’t lock onto while playing his primary position. I could understand, if he was out of position, but it was his primary.

SDS

Playing on Legend in the ALCS vs the Yankees. As if it wasn't hard enough I have to deal with the worst fielding engine I've ever seen. Routine fly ball and I'm tracking it...all of a sudden the game will not let me get under the ball and it bounces 1 inch in front of my fielder's glove for a base hit.

I can't deal with this nonsense anymore.

EDIT: Very next player hits a ball into the gap and my fielder runs past the grounded ball and then inexplicably starts running away from it towards the foul line.
