Showdown is so broken...base runner disappears leading to loss

SDS

12-11, bases loaded and hit a gap shot that should win it. First terrible base running AI makes all the runners not run, then as my runner rounds third he literally disappears and it ends 12-12 as the guy behind him gets thrown out.

SDS, seriously, go to hell. This is unacceptable. Make this right IMMEDIATELY. Stubs, xp, packs, and TA vouchers for the entire player base. You are screwing us over.

SDS

I haven't seen that once since I started playing showdown the on pre-release and I have played a LOT of showdown.

Post a video so SDS can see and hopefully fix

Tried. The replay was glitched out. I also had it happen in a mini boss where I hit a two run homer and it only counted one run.

I think the issue was that the on deck batter was still in third base in this case.

I don’t know though, but it’s freaking unacceptable.

This is a REALLY bad issue as margins can be pretty thin in showdown. It’s why I really feel that a good number of TA vouchers should be pushed towards us because between stuff like this and he server issues people post a TON of progress.

SDS

happened to me too, luckily still won the final showdown boss. but i didn’t get my vouchers. i’ve completed the TA showdown twice but not gotten my vouchers, I am 10 short

SDS

You’re able to play showdown?

Also, pay my electric and internet bills.

SDS

Wow that's pretty crazy. I've played a crapload of showdown and not seen that yet

SDS

Are you on xbox or ps4? On ps4/5 you hit the share button and save a short video of the previous mins. Works as a great just in case.

SDS

Ok so this is not a glitch. This occurs when that base runner comes up to hit. For example, if I hit a triple with Trout but then make 8 outs in a row, Trout needs to get off of third base to hit.

Just pay attention and it shouldn’t come into affect that much

SDS

its a glitch, the baserunner is meant to be auto replaced with another runner

I thought I had been playing to much and lost my mind yesterday while doing a Showdown. I went into the last inning of the Stanton challenge thinking a hit was all I needed to complete 6 total bases and kinda mailed it in, well I got the hit but instead of ending Garrett Cole had a fresh batch of stick'em and I needed 2 more total bases. I was positive that I was right but since it stated I was 2 short figured I had to have missed something. This is what must have happened, I have played a lot of Showdown since last week but I knew I wasn't crazy.

SDS

Also I should add Showdown is great and by far the most entertaining game mode I can an ever remember playing on any game. I typically hate playing the computer in conquest or on long programs like we have had the last couple years, SS in for Vlad in 19 and Babe was a long one as well the cards were worth the grind but the grind sucked. Showdown though, for me has a life of it's own the computer comes to play any pitcher no matter who it is is capable of doing things on the mound nobody has ever seen any player that steps on the field will scale the highest fence or dive for a ball and catch it no matter how improbable it may seem. I think Showdown might've alive and it senses fear and if you show fear your done. Last year early in the game cycle is when I knew Showdown was something different, Matthew Boyd winked at me after starring at me for what felt like forever. That wink disturbed me and distracted me long enough for him to dot me up and beat me. After getting over being winked at and accepting Showdown was not to be taken lightly I realized it was easily the most fun I ever had play vs. what they tell us is the CPU. I call BS but I understand why it must be kept secret. Showdown is a wierd place were strange things happen Good Luck everyone and remember if you see a pitcher wink at you not to let it distract you stay focused
