Attn SDS: Inability To Tag Out Runners Is A Major Problem

SDS

I previously posted a few videos on this issue. For it to happen just once is annoying in itself; however, the frequency of its occurrence is at an all time high.

Here is an example of my most recent experience from today:

The fact is...this issue stemmed from last year's MLB20 version. For this reason, I am really hoping that SDS will acknowledge and correct this problem for any future MLBTS series.

SDS

I agree with this 100%! Tagging is horrible in this game as well as the sense of urgency to tag and throw out runners. Tags as well as throwing seems lackadaisical.

Oddly enough, with Baez as the cover boy last year, you'd think tagging would be the one thing they got right....

But yeah...tagging is laughable. Ball can beat a guy to the base by 2-3 steps and will be safe somehow.

While we are at it, can we address how slowly Catcher get out of the crouch to field bunts/swinging bunts. Its mindblowing how many 40-70 speed guys beat out these but 99 speed guys can beat out a slow roller to SS.

SDS

Yeah, its extremely broken

I just dive and tackle them if i cant tag them

Got to make sure you’re using the correct tackling technique as outlined by the NFL

Just wanted to share my most recent tagging out runner fail.

What is Cecil Fielder doing? Does he think he's playing football? Animation is horrid as he makes no effort to make the simple tag.

It won't be fixed. They're to busy working on next years game. That will literally be a copy of this game, but different content. They might add some new way to hit, but other than that shitty animations will be the same and lineouts.

No horse collar tackles, though!

Offline, it's maddening. For pickoff attempts, the lack of urgency to tag a runner is a joke. Then they have the gall to put a trophy in for a successful pickoff. I got it on both the 4 and 5, but it took luck.
Then there's the extra step outfielders take to throw the ball, giving the A.I. runner regardless of speed to leg out doubles, despite hitting the throw meter perfectly.
Let's not even bring up the fact you can never win a rundown....

For a rundown, try faking a throw or protect the advancing base, like if he going for 2nd, just run down the path.

I'm sick and tired of the first baseman not being at the bag to get the runner on a 9-3 putout. It was deliberately programmed by SDS so that I can't get Molina out 9-3. It isn't a baseball simulation if they can't let you do what players do in real life. Really pisses me off.

My bad, lol. I realized after the fact I put wrong Fielder in lol. Obviously, I meant Prince.

This illustrates just how ridiculous of a problem this issue really is. Animation is horrid as there is absolute no effort to tag out the runner at 2nd. Of course, instead of 3rd out, next batter hits a 2-run bomb. LMAO.

I would be embarrassed to be an SDS programmer having seen this video.

This illustrates how laughable animation is when it comes to tagging out runners on plays where they should be an out. Instead of tagging out the runner, where is he running to?

Monopolized MLB game. What are we gonna do 🤷

I have had many times where my RF has a great arm and could have thrown out a single digit speed batter at first, but the first baseman is standing in the field nowhere near the base. It's frustrating to say the least.

Looks like he had a wet fart scenario and made a b-line to the toilet in my estimation 🤪
