Does anybody else's runners just stop in between 1st and 2nd on a single when moving to the next base?
Base-running from 1st to second
or have them run to 3rd for no reason and get thrown our trying when the cutoff man had the ball already
They sometimes stop midway waiting for a ball to be caught that has no chance of being caught, which leads to them getting easily thrown out.
My fave just now (see my other thread) was Rendon taking off for second on a foul pop up with one out.
Amazing how quickly CPU-controlled fielders and runners can change directions and get rid of the ball. Human-controlled players seemingly have to count to 3 to change directions or throw the ball. Baserunning IQ gets worse and worse every year. Also, can we please finally get rid of the 3rd out throw in the dirt animation and the reliever dropping the glove approaching the mound animation? It was cute a few thousand games ago. Now not so much.
Running is broken, period. Runners staying at the base with two outs even when you tell, (pressing L1) to get going/advance.
As you said they stop between base for no reason and get easily thrown out on fielder choices.
It happened on all modes and on or offline. I've written and place a bug report with SDS, I've send them screen shots attachment showing so; however nothing gets done about it after two patches. I have only played 6 games on RS and restraint to play further until this is fix for obvious reasons. I've been playing both events and it has happened way too often. In events or offline if I take a loss due to this issue who cares but in RS or BR should matter the most. Showdown concept is good however this issue has cost me a number of completions and I'm paying 1,000 stubs for every entry...Not Right!
