Stealing bases!!!!

What is going on with throwing out base stealers since the patch?? There was nothing wrong with it, why did they change it? What do you need to do to get the throw meter up right away? By the time I get the meter up, the runner is justy steps away from the base

SDS

I think it has always been like this. It is hard to steal

SDS

Its the throwing out the runners. Its been happening to me i see the guy stealing and im spamming triangle, he just pops and throws without giving me a throwing meeter. It happens over 50% of the time as of late. Dont remember experiencing it before this week.

Exactly. This is ridiculous.

Online? Don't know if it's changed offline. Before the patch, when a runner went for a steal you just press triangle and the throw meter pop up. Now it shows your catcher stand up before the throw meter pops up. Unless there's something else you need to do that I don't know about.....?

Offline it is hard to steal for me. Maybe I just suck at it

You're right, stealing bases is easy now.

You can no longer 'pre-meter' your throw to throw out base stealers. Not sure on pitchouts, but on any other pitch, you have to wait for the catcher to actually catch the ball before you can bring the throw meter up.

Of course, leave it up to SDS to add another flaw in the game with their updated patch. Let's see how long it takes for them to fix this one, or mostly likely, they won't fix it all.

Agree here, not sure what happened; never had a problem once through ~200 online games previously, and now I can't get the catcher throw meter to pop up online the last couple of days, and every SB attempt against me has been successful without a throw. (Father's Day conquest/moments games were ok).

Input time is taken into account for throwing runners out. If you react immediately to the stolen base attempt your catcher animation will act appropriately. If you don’t react quickly enough then your catcher will stand before he throws. It also matters who is catching.

I'm not so sure about that. To react any quicker, you'd have to be pressing triangle during your pitcher's windup which doesn't make sense. What you said makes sense for how it was before this latest patch

I just time it for when the pitch arrives at home plate. I use Strikezone view pitching so I can see the runners breaking. I threw out 3 yesterday no problem.

I really hope they fix this. It’s super annoying.
