Both in events:
Yesterday me and opponent just could not get anything going. Went into extras and my opponent had a habit of swinging at everything so I was throwing in the dirt a lot. Pitching Sig Jansen and I put the slider off screen it was so low and the pitch absolutely hangs it dead center( nothing shocking there) and my opponent smacks a lazy pop fly not even warning track. My PS Springer camps under it but the ball landed like he wasn’t even there. In fact after the ball bounced off the wall and back at me it took a few try’s running over the ball before he finally grabbed it. I just quit due to higher powers not wanting me to win that game.
Second animation was just now. Playing an opponent who was struggling to hit a bit so he decided to bunt with Margot. The ball speed was actually pretty quick heading right at my 2b. I’m charging but right when I’m suppose to grab the ball for an easy out my 2b stops next to the ball and I lose control of my player and he starts running along side it the ball like it’s going down a foul line and he is seeing if it will go foul. Once Margot is a step from the 1b bag my second basemen decides to grab the ball. Hmmmm then my pitcher hangs a sinker that was suppose to be bellow the zone that he of course blisters.
These animations make zero sense, have you guys experienced this? Having a defender stop dead in his tracks then run along side the ball is just strange. Not to mention having my CF basically disappear for five seconds. I don’t really experience lag ever. Does the fielding engine in the game get confused?
Welcome to the Show my friend. Won’t you stay awhile
That’s all you’ve had? Unfortunately it’s normal. I’ve had balls hit to first and the first baseman wait 3 seconds for the pitcher to cover when he is a foot from the bag. Lol. Or I press throw home in a grounder to first and he goes abs steps on the bag first thus allowing the run to score due to the animation post base tag. ( besides the point I said throw home)
A new real fun one I’ve been having is on a routine grounder to the first baseman and when the pitcher covers, he just stands there with the ball and locks up. Tried every possible button on the controller and he just stands there.
I’ve also had outfielders take quite a few routine fly balls off the face. They then decide to just stand there and not pick the ball up so a different outfielder has to come all the way over and grab it.
And my favorite one... when i cancel a throw to home from the outfield and the outfielder falls on the ground and takes his sweet [censored] time getting up (seriously gets up in slow motion- takes like 10 seconds) while the runners are circling the bases
1st baseman routine ground ball. committed an error running to the bag. he never got there. bunt hit right pass my 2nd baseman error! Catcher covering home never attempts the tag. HAHAHA (crazy laugh)
