1.09 Patch Discussion

SDS

Picking up the ball is a huge feature. I think we can all agree it’s almost a must have for our fielders.

SDS

3 event games in now, I haven't gotten 1 lock on glitch

I'm either the luckiest man ever or it's fixed at least somewhat

See guys?, the ones complaining and making silly posts about fielding will never get fixed?.....use this post to apologize 🙂

Please ban this hot pocket eating, offline playing wannabe troll.

How is this trolling?, the majority of you guys complained constantly that the game is garbage and made multiple threads screaming from the hilltops wanting refunds and saying SDS is slacking off and don't care bla bla bla. Now what are you gonna complain about now? go head, make something up. Why don't you man up and use this post to apologize for all the doubts and accusations you guys made.

Are you serious? They released a patch last time saying it would fix fielding and they didn’t.

You say what else is there to complain about?

  1. Inconsistent hitting feedback
  2. Pitching accuracy issues - serving up meatball homeruns on good input
  3. High sinkers
  4. Facing 99 Kluber every friggin game!
  5. Homerun or Bust feeling
  6. Perfect/Perfect is a double play/warning track shot but a Good/Okay is a homerun blast into the upper deck
  7. Base-runners running like they’re on ice
  8. Changing hitting when it was near perfect in beta / 1st week.
  9. Lying to us that skill will matter more than ever this year.

There’s more to complain about but I’m tired of it at this point.

post patch. the very first fielding opportunity goes to FOTF Buxton with diamond fielding and he runs right past it like he's Stevie Wonder

FFS why release patches and say its fixed when it isnt

Gonna need to see some video first.

Agreed.

I played few event games after the patch and fielding still feel weird to me in the outfield...my opponent hit a line drive to Gallo and again he didnt react even tho i was about to catch the ball in the circle...it went over his head...we will see how it goes 😩

Was he playing Gallo out of position? My experience is that OOP reaction time is slower, even for diamond level fielders.

No he was in RF...ball wasnt even hit hard or into the gap...it was literally in front of him

SDS

Outfielders still jog to the ball and misjudge them on balls that end up being ground rule doubles

Number 2 is as bad if not worse than the fielding. Pitching is like a [censored] shoot. Way too many solid “good” releases the ball just goes where it wants. It’s frustrating.

This. Missing a fly ball has cost me maybe 1-2 games. The atrocious pitching has cost me a ton and makes the game not enjoyable at all. Really entertaining having the arrow to show where the pitch should go and even with perfect release most of those miss by a foot or two.

Interested to see how the pitching does. I don't see a change due to the reason I listed below. Match make according to ping and a lot of these issues disappear. I could give a [censored] less about my fielder missing a fly ball every other game. I can usually overcome that. Can't overcome 30 pitches down the middle every game.

PS. This patch won't help anything because this is a connection issue and not a coding issue. Until they go to ping match making, the differences in people's pings will continue to cause the servers not to see the game correctly.

Just had a ball hit off my CF chest in what should have been a routine fly out

How about some video captures of these events? Video evidence helps a lot more than talk.

I've always loved this about SDS... "please provide us video" for [censored] that is easily reproducible

I post mine to youtube from my ps4. Seamless process.

I had a ball hit directly at my left fielder last night and off the bat my defender locked on to the ball automatically because it was right at him. I tried to move back just a bit because he wasnt lined up properly with the ball but he was locked in animation and wouldnt move and had ball fly right over his head. Hadnt had that happen to me before. Happens sometimes on floaters to 2nd base/ ss but never in the outfield.

My idea is that the lock on the ball on pop flys should be triggered using L2 that way i can adjust on balls hit directly at players and also adds user skill in catching liners because you would have to react quick enough. Also if i hit the L2 lock with a runner on base in the "runway" it should let me field and throw the ball with the run up properly.

Also my final point is that players on d need to play with more urgency in general, defense feels like every guy is just in beer league having a good time with no hustle, especially throws back from the outfield, i just want my guy to play like hes a pro instead of being so casual.

Thank you sds for listening to us and trying to get this fixed. I love playing and will enjoy it even more when some of these bugs are gone

Do you ever have problems with it freezing up? Sometimes I get to the end of a song in a playlist, and it won’t go to the next one. And I try to click a new song, or restart the old one, and the timer stats to tick, but no music.

Sorry - I know this isn’t a Show post, but this made me curious if I’m the only one who deals with this and/or I’d there is a fix I’m missing.

Going to post this here. Let's try to keep all discussion about 1.09 in this thread.

Just curious what does “Performance and stability improvements” mean

SDS

I feel like the patch didn’t take long enough to download and install. A patch needs to take at least three minutes to download and install before it makes any significant change to gameplay. That’s just science, folks.

SDS

Okay, now it's time to update the pathetic excuse for a practice mode. Bring us back the pre-mlb15 practice mode. This new one is so lacking in useful features it's pathetic.
