Why has there been no news of a new patch yet?

SDS

We have been dealing with fielding and Good/Okay for too long. "okay" contact result has got to go. There is no reason if I have good timing on middle middle fastballs and hanging curves that I should be getting weak results.

SDS

They tweeted about it yesterday saying they’re working on a patch for fielding.

SDS

They apparently tweeted about the fielding issues and are “looking” to address them in a patch shortly. I don’t see why they wouldn’t just implant the old programming for last years fielding and call it a day.

New animations and effects are cool but I’d rather fielding gameplay from any other year over what we have now.

SDS

They have to fix the okay and not JUST a fielding patch. This is ridiculous.

SDS

You’re right. They have a lot to fix, including pitching. To me hitting is passable but pitching and defense are ruining the game.

I wouldn’t get your hopes up for much change to hitting.

SDS

Hitting is exactly where they want it. which is why they aren't changing it

SDS

Because it’s playing how they wanted it to until the mlb players started complaining about how bad it is

SDS

So what did they fix? The game updated. It's too bad because I really want to play the game. It's so bad with the fielding, batting and pitching the way it is now.

SDS

Ok normally I dont like to complain about the game and have been hating seeing all the posts about the bad defense, but I am officially upset. I just had two consecutive plays where I was camped under the ball and both weren't caught. One of those bounced right off the outfielders head. I hope the new patch comes quick and really fixes it.

SDS

I legit lost a game to an inside the parker in the Boltom of the 9th because of that. Ball hit Betts straight in the jibbs and must have concussed him because he wouldn’t pick up the ball and the batter (40 speed) pranced around the bases.

Nothing yet. No patch notes have been announced. Not even a timeline of when it will be implemented.

SDS

Thanks Trevor May!

SDS

Hitting is fine, just harder than last year. I have about the same stats as in 19, except last year my outs were 105mph lineouts; now they’re Ks or weak contact.

Exactly how they want it is squaring up meatballs and having them be lazy fly outs?

SDS

Because whatever the issue is, they haven't found how to fix it yet. That's the obv answer on no patch. Whether that's because of real-life circumstances, them just completely screwing up fielding coding and it's a mess to fix etc I don't know.

For now, I'm limiting how much time I play so I don't get mad. Been playing some Simcity and Civ 6 to pass the time

SDS

They're taking their time with this one so they don't mess it up again. It's also harder to change and test their code if they're not on site I'm assuming. We just gotta be patient with them. Game play will get better soon.

SDS

As long as they permanently fix it this time they can take their sweet time. If they rush another patch there is going to be hell to be paid

SDS

When a patch goes in the players don't like

"Curse you SDS, you patched too quickly and did not properly test it enough to get it right"

When the players want something patched

"Curse you SDS, you patching too slowly. Just throw the patch out there right now."

Different circumstances.

The patch they implemented too quickly wasn’t trying to fix a major gameplay flaw. They had a knee [censored] reaction to statistics which is a no-no. Baseball is all about sample size and it includes this game as well.
