RNG in MLB The Show 2021 (survey)

SDS

Do you think there will be MORE or LESS RNG in MLB 21 compared to MLB 20?

(Keep in mind that the game will now be cross-platform, and new XBox users will be playing Diamond Dynasty)

SDS

They have said in the streams less rng more user input.. So I'll take them at their word and believe them.

SDS

How about a new physics engine. You know, maybe we can get collision detection. Maybe they can start representing time, distance and velocity properly. That would fix them from having to use bandaids such as pulling the 1st baseman off the bag with a ball hit to right field because they can’t represent time, distance and velocity properly.

LUL

They are saying more user input I’m hoping they keep their word.

Have to be careful on how you think about the rng this year. There is 3 different modes in the game in 21 and all will have different levels of rng if things work out right

I think he’s referring to online - the default online settings are competitive.

If it's online competitive then there should be a lot less rng. There seemed to be a lot more rewards for squaring up the ball.

I 100% agree it seemed very fair still line outs but made more sense.

SDS

I think it will be exactly the same but will appear to be different for about two weeks following launch.

Unfortunately — you might be correct. last year it seemed like we were getting the game of the century.

That didn’t last long

SDS

It will always get tuned is the thing though. Some people will like it, some won’t.

SDS

The first part of last year was the best hitting has ever been. No idea why they messed with it.

The problem was check swings and foul tips. With that kind of reward you also need to be able to strike batters out - so now you have hitters able to do the “I have no patience starter pack”. And also get rewarded for everything they hit - you need the hitting to be rewarding and the pitching to be as rewarding so it’s not just 19-15 every game which was what seemed to be happening.

I think part of it might be the impact of the better cards. I think thats the main problem they need to figure out tbh. Thats been the trend since 16, which was the last decent game imo!

Pitcher confidence for instance has had way too much influence over the outcome imo. Honestly it shouldn’t affect the outcome. Batter input should determine the outcome.

SDS

I don’t know if you guys noticed it in the tech test but it takes a lot more damage now for the pitcher’s confidence to be depleted. That’s a huge improvement

SDS

For those of you who have been saying “they said more user input” they have been saying that for 3+ years, don’t hold your breath
