Glitched Outfield Animations?

SDS

Anyone have this happen to them? I was using diamond CarGo in center (his primary). He chases after a fly ball and stops like he’s locked on, and then the ball just drops right beside him. It’s not like we saw last year when the outfielder would miss and reach down after the ball. CarGo literally stood still with his glove raised to catch the ball the entire time but the ball dropped beside him and I couldn’t move him over anymore.

A similar thing happened to me in the infield just now.

With one out and one on, DeShields hit an infield pop up. Not only was it not called an infield fly, but my player locked in to it but did nothing. The ball dropped at his feet and I couldn’t pick it up or switch to another fielder to make a play. I got to just watch as both runners rounded the bases.
The best part is the game log simply reads, “DeShields Jr homered to right, Davis scores”.
I lost the game 2-1.

Wow that’s even a little worse than mine. I was able to chase after the ball after it had landed and rolled to the wall. But it showed as a homer in the box score like you said.

I’m glad I’m not the only one that had this issue. Hopefully that means this is something they will work to fix.

I had Griffey when shifted to LF getting locked in « right at me » animation as the ball was hit dead center (where he would have been had he not been in the shift). Even jamming L3 towards the ball, all he did was the small sidesteps until the ball dropped. E8.

What happened after that? Were you able to pick it up with Junior?

Yeah, when the ball zoomed past him he did that extended arm/lost balance animation bending down for it. Ran to the ball, picked it up, turn around one way, then the other before throwing it. Bad.

SDS

Yeah, that’s not good, but he didn’t freeze, so it sounds like a slightly different bug.

SDS

this just ruined a M20 for me. Adam Haesely is jogging to a routine fly ball, and then he keeps running, and keeps running. and it won't let me switch to Harper who is 10 feet away, and the ball hits the ground, goes to the wall, and we lose

Like I said in another thread.....

ZERO SENSE OF URGENCY!!!

SDS

please fix this, i had a 6 point lead in 9th and almost blew the game with TWO fly ball glitches.
