120Hz after update..

SDS

Yup it's not the same as before the patch. But hey, we can play online with soggy gameplay again, where you swing a bat under water. I'll cherish those few days of mini-seasons when the game played noticeably better.

SDS

It worked for me online for one day. I was playing events thinking, I could really run off 12 in row with this update! Now it’s back to over cheating on the inside sinker or RIP

SDS

You think they intentionally changed it, for the worse, so batting averages were kept “realistic”.

SDS

What I noticed offline when PlayStation users couldn't use it online is how smooth the pitches were coming in and you can locate them much earlier and turn on them a lot easier. What I'm noticing now is that the hitting and pitching seems the same as it always was but the frames are smoother in the ballparks so you can pretty much play anywhere you want now that's really the only difference I see. Mlb and legend(or whatever they're called) stadiums are usable.

Mine says the same thing but I don't have vrr. Long story short I think it's just obvious that on Playstation offline is so much smoother than online. I cannot speak for Xbox

Im experiencing the same problem. When the game went to 120HZ last week I was pulling fastballs for home runs on HOF. The gameplay was so smooth and I could easily track the ball. I was excited to test it out online when they announced they fixed the matchup issue on DD. Sadly online play has gotten worse since the update. The game doesn’t feel smooth anymore. I’m now late on a lot of my pitches again. I play on a 65’ LG CX in game mode and I have VRR turned to automatic on my PlayStation 5 settings. I’ve noticed the response time in offline mode has also gone down. Very frustrating.

SDS

I noticed this as well but I think we all just adjusted to it. Only way to truly tell is to go back to 60 hz for an hour, see how it feels, then put 120 back on and compare

From someone who turned it back to 60hz last night and turned everything off... My experience is it plays better at 60hz. ( Well it played like before any of this all happened) 120 is just not where it needs to be and I think it's cause they rushed just fixing the matchmaking issue from all the outrage lol

SDS

All the people who bought new monitors and SDS makes the game worse…what a shame this year is.

SDS

I was half tempted to turn it back on and do the mini seasons but from the sounds of it offline is still just as bad ?

Offline has played great for years. You start to incorporate peoples terrible internet connection and everything goes downhill.

I play on this exact tv. It’s better than my expensive a** monitor!

Feels the same as last week. Jammed on 93 sinkers and early on outside 98's. It's really sad SDS can't figure it out. Earnings call for Sony is coming out on the 10th. Late last year, Sony's top execs told investors, MLB The Show 21' made them a lot of money and was very profitable. Sadly, I think a lot of these issues are from the real programmers leaving the company within the last year for more pay.

Upset about the state of things, but glad it's bit just me. I turned 120hz off and started hitting better in the event.

SDS

I played a few event games today on 120. Most of them were playing as they should at 120. One played terrible. Perhaps it was someone with a bad internet connection. It could also have been a 60hz player and the matchmaking chooses the lowest, which would be ridiculous. Regardless, it seems game to game and we are left in the dark by SDS’s poor communication with its players.

Edit: I’ve had better luck playing at 120 without HDR or VRR enabled.

If only we were worthy enough to be told whats going on.

I think most of us are experiencing 120, but I think what is bothering us that the game plays worse at that now than at 60hz. And there is definitely a HUGE difference between when they first enabled it for and the patch that fixed the matchmaking.

On HOF when it first dropped i was putting up 8-10 runs in mini seasons. The first game I played Corey Seager took the Big Unit deep off an outside fastball i was early on... I was like [censored]...I like this. I just turned 120hz on again for a mini season game to see and just had a barn burner with the legend that is Tikki Toussiant on the bump just shutting me DOWN.

Can anyone tag some SDS peeps on this? I'm old and your technology frightens me

SDS

What I personally think is that they simply allowed 120Hz but did some tweaking on the actual frames the game uses to balance it out to basically exactly how it was before. When I was using VRR last week when we couldn't play online and everything felt great, the frames hovered around 60fps but sometimes shot up towards the high 70s and even to 120 at times (again, while using VRR so NOT just 120hz enabled). This lead me to believe that the frames were uncapped.

Now with VRR on both 60Hz and 120Hz it's a solid lock on 60fps and 120fps in my frame counter without ANY fluctuation, which indicates to me the frames have been locked and this whole 120hz thing became pretty much a placebo effect as a result.
