Outfield blunders

SDS

Anybody having issues with outfielders chasing down fly balls and over/under running them or just flat out not even looking up and missing them completely? These are routine fly balls and the timing or lag is getting thrown off.

SDS

I feel like you need to stop running a bit earlier then last year. I dropped a couple of fly balls in the practice game (while the full game was installing) but got used to it by now.

SDS

Haven't played yet (since I had to be at work at 5am EST today and was drooling in a pillow at launch) but I'm going to ask what seems like an obvious question. Is there a chance the higher rate of dropped balls is because you don't have 99's in the field?

SDS

I already see shades of MLB 16 with it... I had judge camped under one and it hit him in the throat earlier

SDS

Limited play so far (1 conquest game, 3 showdown matches) and only thing I've noticed is the throw meter is extremely fast. Going to take adjusting on that. And my SS bobbled a routine DP (think I had LS dejong there).

SDS

I’m noticing a lot of booted balls in the infield now too. With above average defensive players in RS. This is concerning.

SDS

the defense is like beginning of last year defense I had bellinger take 3 off his head today

SDS

Yes! I’ve seen many routine fly outs get dropped. I’ve seen this a lot with Judge actually. I also had my RF glitch and moonwalk backwards to ball allowing for an inside the park HR lol. Also, does it seem like rollers get by them when they shouldn’t?

On a routine popup, my LF started running away from the circle target, when all I did was tap it, in attempt to get closer into the target. Also, dropped ball on routine fly ball in a tag up situation. And yes, it does seem like rollers get by them, but delayed animation shows them picking up the ball. I can't even get mad, because of how ridiculous it is, that I just have to laugh.

Just lost what would have been my 8th win in BR. Winning 3-2 bottom of the 3rd. 1 baserunner. 2 outs. opponent hits a routine fly ball to center. Easy catch and win right? nope. Steve Finley gets right under it and then never attempts the catch. Ball drops. inside the park home run for the walk off. I was stunned. Never been screwed so hard by a game before in my life.

SDS

I'm wondering if you guys got that red ring of death indicator before.
I had one where Ohtani got the indicator, then let the ball get past him and he just looks at the ball, as homie runs around the bases for a triple.
I checked the replay. The ball went right through the webbing. If I find the video, ill post it.

SDS

Other than obvious bugs, which I agree do exist.

Unfortunately, these things happen in real life. Outfielders lose the balls in lights or sun. Just this week Brad Miller had a fly ball with a stat cast rating 99% catchable that hit his glove and was dropped. It stinks, but happens frequently in real life. I have played a lot of games this year and it seems to be isolated...just like it should be. Stuff happens.

The good thing is playing this game won't have 30,000 people screaming at you for ruining their night.

I was pretty sue I heard Joe Girardi yell bug... that a bug! That should have been caught so he is out! SDS has stupid comeback logic!
