Offline in diamond dynasty. Bunting feels like the only sure way to get hits at all.

The computer moves the infield in but Tony Gwin is too fast.

I have Roberto Alomar batting number 2, and sometimes I bunt both and they both get on base.

Then I get 3 straight line drives to outfielders somehow standing exactly where I hit the ball.

This game is damn fun. I can’t believe I just won this recent online game.

He has 91 OVR Bieber on the mound. I scored one run on 3 hits. My run was a Roberto Alomar drag bunt, steal 2nd, steal 3rd, sac fly.

My 86 OVR Joe Musgrove has a perfect game through 8.2 innings. He ran completely out of energy in the 8th. On the last batter, I give up a bloop single. Then I put the closer in and his leadoff guy hit one in the gap. Throw to the cutoff and perfect throw to home and his guy is out to end the game. Really wanted that perfect game.

Anyone else settle in for a Sunday night of stub collecting only to get hit with a server issue?

It’s pretty clear that SDS has confirmed to the rest of the gaming world.

They could easily solve the server issue by investing more money in that area but they’ve instead decided to save a penny knowing that bandwidth will eventually open up once demand dies a little bit.

They are also actively pushing everything toward a micro transaction where even offline modes are affected (see RTTS now).

And to make matters worse, the game seemingly continues to get buggier every edition that they make.

They claim to listen to their fans and they talk the talk, but this year has hit their reputation pretty hard in my opinion.

It’s a good game when their servers aren’t dog shite. It’d have been nice to give everyone 10 or so packs or something as a nice gesture for suffering through the server issues.

The freeze offs are the absolute worst though. Finally able to play a game then in the middle of a good game it freezes.

re: MLB The Show Thread
Just hit my first walk off and it was a grand slam

Playing a dude that was lucky to have had the lead. No, I’m not saying he was lucky because the “game” was giving him hits or whatever people believe in. I was listening to a podcast and on two occasions I wasn’t paying attention to the outs and threw late to 2nd when I could’ve got the third out easy out. first. 3 of his 5 runs were mental errors on my part.

I singled with my pinch hitter McNeil to lead off the 9th. Then a big double that scores McNeil from Lofton. It went deep into the RF/CF gap. Struck out with Salmon (my first few games with him were awesome and everything downhill since). HBP McMahon. Struck out Dominguez. HBP Luciano. The. Trevor Story comes up. I try to check swing a curve ball but don’t get the call. Then the next pitch is a 4 Seam Fastball left of center plate. Crushed it 373ft out of the park! Felt so good because I was ready to give up when I was pitching at the top of the 9th. Honestly only reason I played it out was for the XP.

I had missed opportunities earlier in this one where I was pressing and in my own head cuz trash Chad Green and Diego Castillo were throwing everything by me. Green’s got 67 break on his slider and I kept swing at stupid balls way off the plate that I had no business swinging at.

Agreed, I've always loved the Show but lately something just seems off. RTTS is by far the worst it has been in some time I think.

I was looking forward to dropping 60 bucks to finally have a baseball game to play, but with RttS sucking hard I didn't purchase it.
