Can we get any sort of confirmation that fielding is being addressed?

Are you still working on it? It's the most frustrating part about the game and was addressed in a patch once but is not close to being fixed.

Hitting and pitching go both ways and I can live with that. The fielding issues, animation locks into errors, throwing meter bugs, etc. are deciding games in unfair ways that don't represent baseball.

I and most everyone else just want to know if this is going to stay this way or are there improvements being worked on. I don't have much more patience to continue to play this game in h2h modes, nor will I continue to play if there aren't any changes in the works.

Is this just in the higher levels of RS because I’ve only seen this once through 3 RS games, about 10 BR games and about 20 Event games. In my last RS game, my opponent took a bad angle to a deep fly ball and it bounced off of LS Harper’s head. I’ve haven’t had a meter not show up (this year-was a catcher issue last year). I guess I’m the luckiest man alive when it comes to lack of funky error-laden games.

Happens either to me or to my benefit all the time and it's one of the most frustrating (not in a good way, SDS) aspects of this game.

Could this be a connection issue between the 2 players (you know, like what Demise is always typing about-Ping based matchmaking and whatnot)?

I'd hope not. If that were the case, I'd think we would have seen it before this year. It doesn't just happen to inferior fielders on difficult plays, either. That's relatively expected that they won't make a tough play. But gold and diamond fielders on the most routine of fly balls and grounders.

SDS

It’s not a connection between players issue. I see it on CPU games regularly. Fielders aren’t locking on and certain players (like Trout) can’t catch a ball close to the wall (especially LF). I’ve played a lot of CPU games during the work lay-off and I see it all the time. Baserunning is getting worse and worse too.

SDS

Im a firm believer that it is based on poor connection matchups and these issues will always be a thing with p2p based competitive play.

That doesn't explain why it's so much more prevalent this year, though. And if it is a connection based thing, that's all the more reason for SDS to get it fixed.

Theres been certain issues every year. Stadiums etc, that lead to "bugs". They dont test with dorm room wifi...so that will always lead to problems....freeze offs, glitches, etc

Edit: if they did server based for competitive modes we would a clearer view of the actual programmed issues. I could 100% be way out in left field...just the way I feel. Some matchups seem to bring out the worst in this game

SDS

not just a connectyiasue,cause it happens in conquest, moments,and mto also. don't see the lock on issue much ,but will get fielders lock on to wrong spot,not adjust to ball moving after locked on, gets close to spot then will run away, and then the always popular ball deflecting off the fielder 20+ times a game, doesn't matter what shield they have.

I would say it’s probably not connection based. I play most of my games with a wired connection but every now and then I have to play using crappy WiFi. I’ve had this issue, both for and against me, with both internet settings

You have games where the ball deflects off of fielders 20+ times. Dayum. I feel bad for you bro. Seriously.

SDS

What I don't get is fielding had issues with 2019 early on also and they fixed it, so why would they regress in that area in 2020 ? It's almost like they screw things up just to fix it again, I don't get it...

Usually it's 5 or so, I've seen that many though, doesn't bother me much with bronze fielders,but see it all the time with gold and diamond fielders
Edit: that's both teams combined

Except it happens against the cpu so I doubt its anything to so with a players connection.

SDS

I believe the fielding issue is both on and off line...I have had several 90 plus fielding outfielders miss easy fly balls l...or their animations turn 360 degrees in place while while waiting under the fly ball...fielding has decided several games I played in..some to my favor...some not...
