Game Update 9

I'm a tad disappointed that contact swings and server instability still haven't been addressed. Not a single word about either one of these game breaking issues in the patch notes. Truly disappointed, like how long do you need to fix it exactly? At least tell us that.

Server issues wouldn’t really be a patch for the console though.

They may need to reboot servers if they’re making changes to improve stability. Tbh. I rarely have server issues as I’m Europe so the load is much less when I play.

Last night I was playing late for me at about 11:30pm so 6:30pm ET when I guess it starts the get busy and I got the old faithful unhandled server errors constantly.

It’s a shame this far along the servers are so unstable.

I don’t think it’s just contact swing that needs fixing. When I was playing RTTS the only time I hit no doubters is when the ball isn’t dead centre in the pci on normal swing. Sometimes it’s not even in the main white circle at all!!!

But contact is broken. Yes.

SDS

I’m thinking contact swings aren’t an easy fix. It most likely has something to do with the recent change in how contact affects PCI. It used to be mainly about vision, and not that it’s contact, I’m betting contact swings are boosting something inside the PCI and causing it to navigate higher than a normal swing. Just speculation on my part, but if it was easy to fix, I think we’d already have seen an update.

SDS

Well screw it time to contact swing.

SDS

Good to fix the freezes. Awful that the horrific gameplay hasn’t been touched in 2 months now. Broken contact swings, bad timing windows, no fielding/throw urgency, slow animations, the bunt glitch, etc. great content, but worst gameplay in show history.

SDS

Yeah the contact swing has to be addressed at some point. I played a guy in the last event. Had me down 6-0 in the final frame. He contact swung the whole time so I said f it I'll do it back. Ended up winning 7-6. It's nuts that I was even able to do that simply by contact swinging instead of normal swings which i was timing well and getting good pci placement. is what it is i suppose

SDS

Just disable contact swings

SDS

Also, it mentions "Catcher Pop Time" was added to all versions of Carter, Pudge and Bench. Nope not there.

It says that will show up after the content drop on 6/22 in the patch notes

So it's active, just not showing? Also, I feel dumb for not reading that as I skimmed.

Oh I have no clue if it’s active now or not. I just happened to read it said it would show up on the card on 6/22. I skimmed too and thought the same as you but I happened to reread the notes to see if they patched the home run replay freeze and saw that note about 6/22 for the pop time quirk

SDS

Oh wait the fixed where you have to play RTTS now but [censored] we won’t fix the issue with contact swing.

Except it was changed last year, not this year
