@raesONE said in Automatic diving outfielders:
For some reason my outfielders sometimes make a big dive while the ball just came off my opponent's bat while I don't touch a single button other than my left stick to position them towards the ball. When I press L2 to switch to the next outfielder, he also dives resulting in the ball rolling into the gap. Pretty hilarious sight, but easy flyouts turn into triples and that's not as hilarious in my humblest opinion.
Anyone ever experience this?
Happened to me only one time. Only thing I can think of, is I must have inadvertently pressed down/downward on the joystick while moving towards the ball (comparable to when someone perfectly times stealing as you begin your stretch, where the defensive view appears suddently as your pitcher dives off the mound). But the fact that it happens when you press L2 is very odd and also rules out this theory I suppose.
I realize it has been a couple weeks since the initial post, so hopefully you haven't had any issues since then.
