I Blame Everyone who Didn't Participate in the Tech Test

SDS

If you guys had participated and stress-tested the servers accurately, we wouldn't be in this situation.

It's YOUR fault!

SDS

They couldn't get enough people to do the tech test to test out the strain from Game Pass. That would be a ton of people who probably didnt even know about it unless the follow SAS actively. I only knew about the tech test because I have played The Show since 17 so I got the email about it.

SDS

I tried signing up for them. The problem is they only took a small amount of Xbox users. But let’s be real here. Every year they have server issues. This year is by far the worst it has been. You can’t play for more than 10 minutes without it booting you.

SDS

19 was this bad too. I am kinda happy to have the new player base though. Once they work out the servers it seems like a pretty fun game to play.

SDS

there are other ways to stress test a server. there's no excuse for these server issues for the 6th year in a row. SDS is more worried about making DD content and maximizing their opportunities to make more money through stubs. We are in desperate need of another company to make a good baseball game. if only it were possible

B.S. They're a gaming company. I'm sure they research this stuff. They knew doubling the amount of players was going to overload the servers.

SDS

Agree with thinkbluedgr!!!! I have beta tested 3 yrs in a row and SDS still gets an "F" every year at startup. Constant server issues for the first month every darn year. You would think they would have this at perfection after all these years. But nope, just a big mess every year.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was actually the CEO of San Diego studios.

How do you estimate or project how many of xbox's 18 million game pass subscribers are actually going to try the game?

I can understand the server issues this year because of that gamepass wildcard being thrown into the mix fairly late (after the tech test). The previous years there was not really an excuse for.

That’s not the problem. If you sign up for the tech test you get to participate in the tech test. It’s not a lottery. I’m sure part of the problem is the unexpected load of all the game pass people.

lets be real, we were having server issues during early access. Its not xbox game pass thats causing issues, its definitely exacerbating them but its not the root cause

SDS

Is this sarcasm?

I did and made it clear in my posts and survey there were Server/Matchmaking problems. From DAY 1!!

And didn't the Server go offline during the Tech Test?

On PlayStation you are correct. Everyone that signed up did get to participate. On Xbox they only took a limited number of people.

SDS

Yeah you would never be able to have enough people in the technical test to account for game pass it's just not possible not to mention Sony San Diego should have known that there was going to be more people using the service this year with them adding Xbox to it and all like they should have upgrade the servers even before the game came out

Multiples times during the tech test you couldn't get in because the servers appear overloaded then as well. Exception errors were frequent there.

Most likely SDS is just putting bandaids on the server issues when surgery is needed. If they tell us that they are shutting it down for a few hours to completely fix the server, I would be ok with that. But they have to communicate with us on every social and media platform, to let us know the truth of what is going on. Blows me away they are not communicating with the people that pay their salaries. Maybe this is an opportunity for another game developer to create and new Baseball game that puts SDS to shame.

We have literally been saying that every year for as long as I can remember. It's a problem when there's a monopoly on anything.
