Had three crashes in one hour since 1.05 dropped. One when my RTTS player was leading off from first, another at game end another waiting to bat.
It eventually goes to the "Report to Sony" screen, and the first two times I added some detail and sent it off. Not going to keep repeating that though.
Worked fine yesterday. Cannot finish a series since 1.05 dropped.
Anyone else struggling?
Gone from 61.3 (thereabouts - looking at the circle thing) to about 61.7 in an entire afternoon and evening's play. (100 plus games. All of them played - Zero simulated)
Gone from May to season end 2022 and gained about 0.4 of a point of overall.
Hitting at well over 400. Very close to 100% fielding (only one error I can remember) stealing bases, skill ups between series whenever they are offered. Got one piece of equipment that is inferior to the pieces I already have.
My XP (even though it is supposedly DOUBLE XP) has taken me from halfway through level 12 to halfway through level 13
Not getting anything meaningful in the way of rewards, not getting any meaningful advancement in XP, not getting any meaningful gains in skills.
Not sure why I'm bothering to play to be honest.
Is it because I need to start again with a fresh "save" made after the patch dropped?
Because this is seriously seriously dull
(Played every MLB the Show since PS2 including PS Vita iterations so I know what this is normally like to the tune of many thousands of hours play time)
This game is messed up beyond belief,
It's so slow it feels like I'm imagining progression.
If RTTS isn't broken. It's doing a very good job of feeling like it's broken
They might as well have said
Road to the Show Card Battling Rogue Like
Turning your base stealing, tip and run speedster
Into a hulking, slow homer hitting plodder
By swapping out some cards, choosing a different bat and changing your sunglasses?
That's not just immersion breaking. That's taking immersion outside and spending half an hour battering it with a diamond tipped jack hammer until no-one could recognise it was immersion in the first place.
That's MLB "Sims dress up room"
Hard to believe any developer that understands their fan base would have done this to their own game.
Unless it is for the money of course...
You restart in name only. In terms of stats and progression - you can't change anything. It's like "My Little Pony Dress Up" game.
If you want to go from a slow moving slugger who plays first base or DH
To a fleet footed gap finding base stealing defensive monster.
Change your cards and swap your sunglasses, bat and hat between games. You know - like a small child's first dress up game on their Nintendo handheld.
You don't progress. You choose the right outfit. How the mighty have fallen.
I won Cy Young and had a batting average 1st in the team at 4.05.(Almost .140 higher than the next closest) Most home runs 51 (18 more than the next closest) and second in RBI's (Didn't count towards awards because I hadn't got enough plate appearances being a 2 way player)
Dropped for the playoffs. Not even on the roster.
Adding as I play
Progress is still painfully slow. 90 minutes and I haven't moved a quarter of one unit. I was 62.3 (ish) and now, 30 games on I'm about 60.5?
I've not hit a home run for about 2 months. I made another "Slugger" profile. Equipped the Slugger archetype cards - and have had a few "perfect perfect" as well as some very close shaves. Not even nearly hit a home run.
Been awarded one piece of equipment which I suppose is Ok. It's worse than the stuff I already had so not an improvement - but at least I got one.
Not getting any throw accuracy points. Thought the game was not showing them until I mis threw (finger slipped off the button) and I was deducted 2. Realised I have NEVER been awarded any throwing points
No practice sessions? Are these out of the game now?
I did get my equipment back when I logged out and back in again. I don't know what's going on there.
Just a feeling that RTTS is about as broken as it was before the patch. Maybe different bugs - but still have no confidence.
In third year of playing CF. Hitting .380+ with an OBP of well over 400. More home runs than the next two players in my team combined.
Still in AAA.
Might have to play some Diamond Dynasty (which I find as boring as watching paint dry) to get some better cards and gear. I think it's my overall rating that is holding me back not my playing stats.
For some reason my manager rests me every other game. it's not a platoon situation. Righty for righty.
The guy he replaces me with hits about .225 and has 3 home runs for the season to date (compared to my 25+).and has an inferior defensive record. He does have a much higher durability. I'm still at base level and he s on about 44. But man - attribute increases are SOOOO SLOOOW I've only been training those that actually improve my stats the most.
Played MLBTS since PS2. Enjoyed most iterations though RTTS on Vita used to crash and was never fixed.
But beside those poorly coded Vita versions - I've enjoyed every game. But getting really cheesed-off with the game this year. As an RTTS only player It is not fun at all
Pure Analog Stride hitting is always the way to go when playing The Show, it seems more natural and doesn't involve aiming at a target like its Duck Hunt or button mashing X like its a baseball game from the 90s. Its an actual swing of a baseball bat but I'm sure you know that already, its just that causal PCI noobs don't understand that. But to get to your question..no, once you practice for a while and play about 20 games you'll get a feel for the hitting and you'll realize when you hit a high fly ball or hit into a double play its your fault...don't be discourage like a casual noob, just keep practicing and take swings and it will all come together.

Agreed on everything, especially that I’d rather not ever play DD again.
Been saying for a week now,.... it FEELS deliberate. For a ‘bug’ to magically hit like this the very year they tie RTTS to dd and very little word on it for the first few weeks (including early release etc) just feels dirty. They’re getting people hooked into dd as much as possible before ‘fixing’ RTTS.
Side: it’s amazing that some still go around acting like you can max your RTTS player out with 50s in every stat in like one day and you’re some newb moron if you can’t... ive been grinding speed and now power all week on beginner just to get my guy playable. I get stat boosts every game that move the overall so little it’s taking an entire season to move the power one point... but apparently you can max it in one sitting... Lol. This also makes it hard because the only real way to get your guy good at all is through archetypes that progress SO MUCH faster in dd.... which again, is totally on purpose.
Yeah I asked someone about this They told me it was "Easy to hit at .800 and get 150 homers a season on the easiest level"
All I can say about that is, they are a very very different ability of player to me.
Part of the reason I play RTTS is because I am TERRIBLE at the game. I can't even see the ball above Veteran level (literally cannot see it) I'm in my 50's so I'm never going to "get gud" - cause I already "got old"
So I play solo play RTTS. Play it my way. (easy mode - and I don't care what anyone thinks about that. I have not the tiniest bit of self wroth wrapped into how well I can play a video game. If you are much better than me. Great. Good for you. So what?)
Because that's how I can enjoy the game.
Or "Used to be able to enjoy the game"
Because this year it has been a really poor experience. And bugs aside, the fundamental changes they have made to RTTS have ruined it . So even after the bug fixes, I doubt I'll play again.
Yes, let’s change server maintenance hours for ,01% of the market
(11% - Just saying)
The 2nd most popular Baseball game in the world. OOTP - is made by a German
It is what it is. Unless they have dedicated EU servers they are making a sensible choice. It does muck the game up over here. Means I rarely if ever play this year. I love cricket as well BTW so this and the IPL being cancelled has put a real dent in my sports this month.
I'll move on and play and watch other things. It's not the end of the world.
Something has gone wrong. Planned downtime is now every day, and right when I have the time to play (from the UK it's about 9:00am to early afternoon - then I go to work)
But I don't really want to play anyway because RTTS is the only mode that interests me.
The SE has been out 2 weeks as of tonight and the progression bug was being reported here within hours of it coming out. Even if it wasn't bugged it's horribly slow to progress and hobbled by the "dress up game" mechanics. Swapping your clothes and cards changes your player type completely between games. I'm not sure they could make a more immersion breaking feature. Not so much progress as "playing dress up"
Until it's fixed I'm not that interested in playing anyway. And if they don't change the "Clothes and cards make the player" mechanic this will be the last MLB I buy. Playing the old NCAA game at the moment - and while its graphics are rough and the animations are very out of date - overall I'm loving it.
Ironic that most replies assumed OP was from UK when the UK has disgracefully (br)exited Europe. France is one hour behind the UK time-wise but I didn't know Denmark was 2 hours behind! Europe is farther north than many realise so the earth's curvature would mean the timezones are tighter. I'll show myself out.
No - we have not "Br" exited Europe.
We have left the EU.
The EU is not Europe.
The EU is a none democratic form of government that has oversight over about 50% of the countries in Europe.
The following nations are in Europe - but not in the EU
Bosnia and Herzegovina
There are about 10 more very small nations (some city states like The Vatican) that are also in Europe but not in the EU
In total 29 nations of Europe are not in the EU.
Maybe don't cast judgement when you clearly have not the first idea what you are talking about?
I've re-started by ballplayer for the 4th time now due to errors and crashes. Lost progress, then lost equipment now after 1.05 i get freeze/crash about every 2nd or 3rd game. Often having to replay whole series - only for it to happen again.
I've decided this is the last time I try. Life's too short and there are too many other good games to keep dealing with this. As I've got zero interest in online play, I'll go back to to '20 if I play The Show again this year - If I play at all.
And, despite owning every single game in this franchise going back to the PS2, including Vita - Next year I'm going to give serious thought to not buying next year's game.
They really messed up this year.
