    Custom Practice is more or less an offline scenario creator, not unlike the situation thing from a few years ago (that everyone ruined by getting easy stubs off triple plays). No autohit setup unlike that feature I mentioned, but they're looking to add that in the future.
    I, for one, am REALLY glad to have this back.
    I didn't buy last year, did they balance the minor league stadium distribution better? In '16 and prior they were terribly unbalanced and I got sick of many of them.

    Well looks like Expos jerseys are here however this thread will most likely flood with the dark red jerseys again.

    When they’re consistently wrong and make me not want to use red jersey teams in franchise I feel like it should be mentioned. It’s a problem. Don’t tell me what I can or can’t complain about. Or that your thing is more important than mine. Until they get it right, I will make a comment about it.

    It’s a condescending comment about people being vexed by their inability to get red correct. It’s not the first one he’s made.

    Their reds are correct, it's the lighting system that throws it off. They've mentioned it before. Same reason Pittsburgh's black jerseys look faded.

    Well then it needs to be addressed. Not sure how anyone can use the Nationals when their colors look closer to purple than red. The Blue Jays red alternate is a throwaway because it looks so bad. The Angels and BoSox aren’t maroon but they’re way too dark. Obviously I care about other issues in this game. But as someone who watches hundreds of games a year, the colors being so off really ruins certain teams for me.
    TripleCrown9
    I don't know. This screenshot of Washington and Philadelphia definitely looks like red to me.

    Dull red at best. Not vibrant like real life. But. Try a night game. Or one with cloud cover. Nats look maroon. Plus Phillies batting helmets looked more red than their jerseys last year.

    In my defense, I absolutely agree with you that the reds need work and my initial comment wasn't meant to be negative. It was just something i noticed and mentioned since it was obvious others will talk about it as well.
    However admittedly, i do cringe when people ask for brands and Nike this and Adidas that. Who cares when the game has more important issues that need attention?!

    Que all the posts complaining about that

    Lol anddddd queue the posts complaining about people complaining. Let’s just live and let live people. We all have concerns. We all have worries. The constant is we all love this game. So let’s just try and complain in a manner conducive to benefitting the game, yeah? I want 19 and beyond to be the greatest sports games ever. Pretty sure most people here do. So I don’t get the hostility everyone has against someone else’s complaints. Especially cause most of the differences in complaints aren’t covered by the same parts of the dev team. Gameplay isn’t done by the art department. Etc. Someone wanting something added or fixed won’t take away from someone else’s thing more often than not.
    and it has been asked 100 times in there and they are not answering if 2 way players is a option this year, so I doubt that Otani is going to be a 2 way player

    it's more of the 'I am not buying the game if that feature isn't in it's in, its the same game as 17' posts that I am referring too
    Anyone hear anything about the Yankee Stadium lights being turned on and off for home runs at night games making it into the game? That would be one of the “little things”.

    Well I find that those are a minority of people. Most here are pretty diehard and it would take a lot for them not to buy.
    It would be awesome if the rain delay cut scene made sense. Since when does a manager meet with the umpires to prompt a delay? Why doesn't the manager have his hat on?
    They missed a huge chance to make a cool cut scene with tarp on the field or let the announcers reset the action. Looks like very minimal effort was put into this feature.
    On the plus side, rain is now dynamic.

    To be fair we don't know how much work that takes to get in the game for really only 1 player in baseball. Who may not even do both when he gets to the majors. If I am a Major League Manager I don't know if I want my Ace being in the lineup every day. Or maybe he's so good I don't want him pitching an adding the potential for more health issues.

    If reds are correct, then why did the Nats red alternate look much brighter than Blue Jays red alternate, Reds red alternate etc?
    Cubs blue is too dark.

    That's a bummer. Would've rather seen that than rain delays tbh.

    At the very least make the challenge replays skippable! They seriously drag on and it's frequently pretty obvious which way it's going
    Aside from Vlad being in the game, I am not really that excited for 18. They didn't mention if the new Angels scoreboard is going to be in the game and if Legends like Vlad will be behind a paywall like Griffey was. My PS+ runs out on the 23rd of this month so if Vlad and other legends are indeed behind a paywall, I won't be able to get them. The server errors were horrible in 17 so I have no intention of going through all that again. They confirmed no create a stadium and no replay challenges at any other bases like it's always been. Not seeing a reason to own 18 at this moment.
    I liked last weeks stream better than this week. Nothing on the stream really got me excited and they kept mentioning DD and RTTS but nothing about Franchise. I'm going into the Franchise stream next month not really expecting anything.
    A couple of positive takeaways:
    -The stadium guys are really doing a great job. Bleachers, the new seating behind the plate in Houston, “Chop House,” etc. all look great.
    -I feel like there were more variations in swing types. McCann and Story stood out to me.
    -Catcher animations are smoother, especially when going from the crouch down to one knee.
    -Umpires no longer look over their shoulder before every pitch.
    Colors definitely need to be improved but it appears that the Nats red and some accessories are looking better, so hopefully they’re still working on other teams. I also wish they would have shown fog and maybe played a few innings in it. And I’m not a huge equipment guy, but Nike catchers gear *really* needs to be in the game considering so many catchers wear it, and Nike is now an in-stadium ad.

    He will be a 2 way player this season. It's been confirmed by Mike Scioscia. And his elbow damage is the same as any other pitcher his age. That whole story about his UCL was blown way out of proportion.

    Same with tanaka every time he has 1 bad game for the past 4 years people say he needs Tommy John. the fact that he good games mixed in with bad proves its not a issue.
    Another thing, it still looks like the injuries don't make sense. In the stream a pitcher got hit by a comebacker and got injured, which is a good sign, however the injury was a pulled muscle.
    I feel like last weeks stream was better and more informative. Seems like they are more structured and informative when Nick and Steve are leading the stream.
    Armor and Sword
    This is something they really need to get on. It is now a big part of every game in the league now.

    I think the biggest issue is that we can't challenge ourselves. it's just a random event at 1st base where it gives us a choice if we want to challenge rather then us implementing it
    I am not sure how they can expand further to that though, goofy things can happen with challenging
    Armor and Sword
    This is something they really need to get on. It is now a big part of every game in the league now.

    Yeah. As it stands, there is still no reason for me turn on "Umpire Close Plays" (meaning it will miss calls occasionally) when the challenge system is limited to one event that doesn't even get reviewed by the CPU team. Same reason I don't use Balks in my offline play.
    I have to believe they're trying, and that it's some kind of major undertaking.
    They might go into more detail next year with changes to challenges. Don't forget, 2018 is going to be the beginning of change of pace strategy for the MLB so most likely SSDS will go more extensively with these changes and refer to them as "the little things" for next year.
    I'm not buying the lighting excuse for the colors or all teams colors would be off. For the red itself how come the Indians red throwbacks last year were the right red? How come the lightining didnt affect those?
    And they corrected the Mariners teal that was too dark a few years back and the Jays blue that was also too dark several years ago.
    If they can fix the colors on some teams but not all then I'm not buying the lighting excuse or the problems would be across all the colors and specfically all the reds.

    Unless they're waiting to show us Nike catchers equipment during RTTS stream... But Im not holding my breathe.
    I really dont get it, definitely since Nike is a big sponsor in the game now.

    well one year Madden had the Chicago Bears wearing Orange pants which they never wore in their life. funny thing was they didn't have the actual pants they actually wear. they did this over the years for other teams too
    people here are complaining about shades or red, madden has done 100 times worse when they miss a complete uniform in a game and put a fictional one in

    There was an uproar with the Niners pants for a few years. They were always too yellow and not gold. It got fixed but took 2-3 years. Patriots had dull grey helmets instead of silver this year and it got fixed pretty quick.
    Blegh
    I'm curious, has anyone from the development team ever come here and acknowledged the incorrect colors?

    Not that I’ve seen. The closest I’ve seen is two years ago I posted on Ramone’s Twitter with comparison pictures between the Angels in game and Angels in real life. Showed multiple angles and differences in lighting to show how vibrant and bright the Angels red was compared to the very dull and dark red in game. The response I got was ‘Colors are subjective.’ Which I assumed was in reference to TV settings. Except that the colors are bright when I watch the Angels on the same TV that they are dull and dark when I play as them in The Show. And The Show is the ONLY game where I have to adjust my TV settings to brighten red, and when I do the other jerseys are out of whack.
    Interesting. On paper it seems like an easy fix if in fact the team knows this is an issue. I doubt they would just ignore it. But given the latest gameplay, who knows.

    Agreed. I don't care about the replay system. I don't like it real life and I really don't care to have it in the Show.

    I was expecting a much bigger Rain Delay implementation.
    A simple cutscene and Option to take out your pitcher is very bland.
    Then again, it might have been a Fast Play Presentation package.
    If not, that’s pretty lackluster. Show the Tarp, show a Fake Radar showing Cloud Coverage and what time it looks to clear up. Show the stadium emptying out with the rain falling and tarp on field before heading to “commercial break.”
    I’d imagine Matty V has a line or 2 that he says everytime there’s a rain delay.
    It’s a good first step and hopefully they aren’t showing the whole sequence.
    The bigger news here is Dynamic Weather during the game is big.
    Other than that, pretty boring Stream. Cool tidbits here and there but overall not much to it.

    Yea, after seeing this I'm not as excited for this feature as I was. They hardly talked about the weather changes which shows you how interested they are about it.
    I wish they had waited to implement the rain delays until they had rainouts and double headers to go with it. It almost seems like they threw this in just to appease the people requesting it.
    dalger21

    But it would move the game forward. The sport itself has moved forward by expanding the replay system over the last few seasons. Like it or not, it's a HUGE part of baseball now that isn't going away, but will continue to evolve and expand. This is a simulation of real baseball and therefore should follow suit. It's a much more integral part of the overall sport and its presentation than rain delays for example. Manager challenges and reviews can potentially affect every single play on the field.
    If they want to tout the game as a simulation/representation of real baseball, they simply have to expand it. They're just delaying the inevitable.

    If it is the lighting, how come all teams wearing red are spot on in the show '16 which I still own and play with. And to top it off, I have a PS3 ! I did not purchase last year’s version nor did I buy a PS4 console because of that. One would think that the PS4, which is far more advanced than PS3, would have the capability to show the right shades of red, or any color for that matter. Too much lighting on PS4 ? Na, I don't buy that. Some people on this board have suggested that the game is an early built and it will be OK once the game is released. They said the same thing when the Blue Jays uniforms were sporting a navy blue instead of a royal blue some years back. It took 3 years, yes, 3 years to finally come up with the right shade of blue. Yet, no one at SDS will comment about that color stuff. It does not appear to be important to them. Don't get me wrong; the game is fabulous, probably the greatest video sports game on the market. More and more people like me are complaining about this color business, and rightly so. We do it because we care about his game. Unfortunately, SDS has remained totally silent on that issue. To me, it's totally incomprehensible.

    It's weird that the uniform files were already have said to be large files. One would think that adding PBR to them might make the files even larger. Then they go and figure out how to expand more slots.

    I feel like this needs to be brought up. We hear SDS constantly talking about listening to the fans and the community, however to what extent do they go? In other words, how do they measure what people want?
    I want them to create a poll or something every year. Give us choices that are realistic for the time frame, and let us vote what features/additions we want the most.

    What pisses me off is if they actually fix the Nats red, they'll beat their chests over it in a future stream acting like they are listening to us and "look how much we care about the little details". Nevermind uniforms should have been 100% on point years ago. And it's not just the Nats, it's every uniform and besides color correction, the uniform templates need to be completely redone. There needs to be a separate uniform template for each team.

    I've been asking for the Calfornia Angels jerseys forever an they're finally in! I'm super excited! I loved the 2001 jerseys and liked the ol'e 1960s ones, but always would of preferred the 1990s and 1970s ones, now we got them all!
    Also, based on what they said about Coors I can only assume they didn't have enough time to get the new scoreboards at Angels Stadium in the game (I feel like Coors got finished before the Angels Stadium ones did). Not a huge deal but sad none the less.
    All in all I'm really excited for the game already and can't wait to see what RTTS and Franchise have new to those modes!

    You can tell Ramone doesn't edit rosters, lol. He kept scrolling the wrong way to get to the next jersey reveal. Would be on STL and would go through the entire AL and loop back to the Cubs etc. Those 1944 Brooklyn Dodgers unis are fire though. They made some good choices with which ones to add.
    Bleachers in Wrigley, Yankee Stadium, Dodger Stadium, PNC, GABP and "a few more."
    The updated vault design is going to make editors pretty happy. Being able to look at the CAP face before downloading is a nice add.
    No home and away accessories. So the equipment editing will just be normal brutal instead of ridiculously brutal.
    Mike Trout face scan. Reason enough for Angels fans to pick this game up.
    Stamina will be affected by leaving a pitcher in thru a rain delay. Rain delays will not happen every time it rains. It seems like the delay time estimate will be variable also.
    I have to say that I totally understand Nick Livingston's gusto for Officer Ron Karkovice.

    Can you guys stop with this stupid default answer to people who expect more from this dev team? It's your way of minimizing honest critisism of a game we all REALLY want to buy. We all love baseball and want this series to be the best it can be. I think many of us feel the same in that the developers have lost their way over the last few iterations of this game. We want them to again focus on the little things and details that baseball purists want. This includes correct uniform colors and templates.

    2. Catcher Pitching gestures where are they on making it consistent and can you turn off the pitcher OSD menu.
    3. Batter Pitcher Analysis how to access it and use it to your advantage
    4. Quirks improvements or addition, if any.
    5. Swing Analysis deep dive bat versus ball placement and how it effects hit types. You can see in 3d space where the ball hits the bat as well as timing, show through your widgets how that affect hit types.
    That was an excellent stream.

    Russell said "Let's not do Yankees and let's definitely not do those teams". "Those teams" are custom created teams. When I go to that screen in the show 17 I don't see any user created teams. I only see user created teams in diamond dynasty.
    Therefore my completely unsubstantiated stuff is perhaps you can now create a team with your own logo, team name and location, uniforms etc and use it in modes outside of diamond dynasty like maybe franchise but they don't want to reveal it yet. Replace an existing MLB team with my own? Same roster by my created team? I've tinkered with the art program and it is possible to do some cool stuff with it but I'm a franchise user so I didn't play much with my created team.
    Did the ball bounce off the foul pole in that second straight hit down the right field line? If so, shouldn't that be a ground rule double?

    That's a negative. They said no team/stadium creator in the stream. There are simply a few legend teams that you can load up to play with. No more than that. They haven't even clicked on the franchise tab yet...everything has been play now.

    To be fair we don't know how much work that takes to get in the game for really only 1 player in baseball. Who may not even do both when he gets to the majors. If I am a Major League Manager I don't know if I want my Ace being in the lineup every day. Or maybe he's so good I don't want him pitching an adding the potential for more health issues.

    Ohtani won’t be able to hit the fastball he will only pitch this ohtani talk is already done mlb network already said he won’t be able to manage pitching and hitting.

    I agree, although there was at least some hype in the Gamestop Monday thread when we first learned of it. I do feel like it could go underappreciated by the majority of The Show players who just download rosters and play the game (taken for granted, I guess you could say), but like you said the OSFM guys and the hardcores who know their team inside and out will definitely appreciate it.

    I don't think anyone said the Nationals didn't own them. I think people were saying why the Nationals don't wear them in real life. Pretty sure the reason they are in now is because of Vlad being added as a legend. They even hinted that during the stream.
    I personally, know the reason the Nationals don't wear Expos uniforms as throwbacks (I'm not going to get into it), but there is some talk that they may try wear them in the future. All I can say is there are legalities to it.
    What's the significance of the 81 Expos team specifically? I prefer the look of the 94 Expos jerseys myself (and selfishly would have preferred those to make the game) but I feel like they chose the 81 jerseys for a reason.
    SilverBullet1929

    Still true, the Nationals do not own the rights to the Expos uniforms. They would have had to pay for the right to use the unis and get permission to use them as National's throwbacks.
    ShowTyme15
    I don't think anyone said the Nationals didn't own them. I think people were saying why the Nationals don't wear them in real life (could have contributed to previous versions as to why they weren't in). The uniforms are still apart of the Franchise history. It's also possible they weren't in the style guide or maybe the dev team decided not to have the Expos uniforms in. Pretty sure the reason they are in now is because of Vlad being added as a legend. They even hinted that during the stream.

    I know they're in because of Vlad but Vlad also wasn't on the 81 Expos so that's an odd bit right there. And yes in the past when asked why the Expos throwbacks weren't in the game SCEA claimed something about not being able to use them because of the Nationals not owning them or not being able to use them or something to that effect. Don't ask me to go back and prove it because I can't but hopefully someone can vouch for this memory as well.
    I'd like to hear from folks that played the alpha (being the embargo/NDA is lifted) about how hitting feels this year vs. last year. It hasn't been fully detailed from the devs but I'm getting the feeling that it will be a different feel, at least results wise...if nothing else, maybe the feedback and the output actually matches what it ought to be regardless of success.

    Love the Expos jerseys, love Vlad, welcome back Frank Thomas, lots of animations, lots of positive for sure. However, the rain delays don't make sense if postponement and double headers are never consequences. Also would have liked to see challenging be active and not passive, same way MVP used arguing. I'm assuming this is all down the pipeline. As far as colors go on unis, The Show has always struck me as a darker game color palette wise, even in day games. It's always as there's a washed out or gray filter over things, which was worse back in the PS3 days because the PS3 was default less bright than the Xbox 360. Or less saturated, whatever. Point is, colors had less pop. I haven't really focused in on that this gen, but going to see for myself on '17. 
    I can tell they worked a lot on presentations this year. Saw a few in Houston before Ramone tapped the X button. Nice to see.
    EDIT: Also like the businesses they added to specific stadiums. Bleacher and bench seating. Also Brian McCann has a beard.

    As far as I can tell this is 100% speculation. Unless he's seen a stream none of the rest of us have. It's been total radio silence on Franchise Mode aside from "Phases" which seems to be a sim-to-specific-date/phase type of feature. The only thing we know for sure about that mode is Ramone said no stadium/team creator in today's stream, which would seem to rule out expansion as a possibility.
    I'm not aware of any functionality having been added to the front office, rotating interleague schedules, or revamping the scouting system. It seems likely that a few small things have probably been added, but that info probably won't surface until the Gamestop Monday during the franchise mode stream week.

    So again, I’m sure I’m posting this in the wrong thread, but... I’m literally at a Walmart now trying to preorder my copy of the game. They are showing that they won’t even have a game until the 27th. So they won’t do a pre-order for me. Furthermore trying to preorder it though the store links on the shows page the only store that says it will have the game In Store on the 23rd is Best Buy. I’d rather do it through Walmart so I can grab it at midnight, and I’d get the digital, but last year something got screwed up and I had to also buy a physical copy. Anyway, I’m trying to preorder this game, but the stores don’t even know about FPW and none of them will guarantee me that they’ll even have it. I’m sure this will all get ironed out, but I was wondering if anyone else is having this problem.

    I wish they had waited to implement the rain delays until they had rainouts and double headers to go with it. It almost seems like they threw this in just to appease the people requesting it.

    Some of the tweets in this topic are laughable. The stream was informative and entertaining. If you didn’t enjoy the stream, what is the point of noting it other than to take a shot at the devs? The devs add so much to the game every year, many of which come from this community. So to suggest the devs are tone deaf to what community wants is sad.
    Many people on this forum have requested rain delay. They get it and now complain that the get rain delay. What did you expect when the devs already said rain outs and double headers were unlikely? Didn’t stop folks from requesting rain delay. Now they get it and before they even see it in action, they complain. Give the devs a break. I am grateful they listened to the community and added it.
    As for the uniform colors, get over it. The uni colors are pretty good but not perfect. I get people wanting more accurate uni colors but the incessant whining is too much. If the devs felt they were either wrong or easy to change, I would think they would have done it. Why do you seriously think they have not? And dont say because they don’t care anout the community. If they didn’t care, the game probably wouldn’t have many of the little things it has now. And they certainly wouldn’t be doing dev streams.
    I could care less about DD, play now, legend (though I like classic seasons and teams), and retro modes. They could put those resources in to franchise or the replay system. They haven’t but I’m not going to whine about it. The devs read all the posts. They know the community wants more accurate unis. So you have to ask why reasonably they haven’t done it. But be fair to them. There is a difference between constructive criticism and destructive criticism.

    So in terms of the rain delays...
    Every time it rains, does it automatically lead to a delay?

    No, it doesn't. They answered that question in the twitch chat. Also the rain is dynamic and the delay period seems to be variable. Pitcher stamina is also impacted by the delay. Not an incredibly deep feature, but probably enough to not seem too tacked on.

    I think people here need to get over the red color/wrong color Jerseys. The devs clearly don't care about fixing them.

    I know you know, i think everyone on this forum knows by now lmfao.
    I just wanted to post one more example, but that's the last i'll mention it, i don't want to beat a dead horse.
    Let's just hope the devs take note and can make the necessary changes.

    As for the uniform colors, get over it.

    I find it funny that a guy just got banned literally a couple of pages ago for telling people to "get over it" about the colors on the uniforms. And here you come, not 20 posts later, doing the exact same thing. lol

    Wait for it...

    I think people here need to get over the red color/wrong color Jerseys.

    Sorry. :lol:
    The off colors personally have always bugged me, but it was more than just uniforms: grass, dirt, walls, skies, everything. I would like to see how this game looks in HDR this year though. Not to say things will automatically be "addressed," but sometimes my monitor just doesn't show what our TV's show in that kind of way.

    From 17 (evidenced by the win, dance, repeat thing)
    Here's another example:

    While I agree the red teams need some tweaking, the second pic is extremely over saturated and not really accurate. The third pic is good though.

    I think people here need to get over the red color/wrong color Jerseys. The devs clearly don't care about fixing them. I am more upset about not adding the new Angels RF scoreboard or Trout farm and other things missing at certain stadiums. I am also concerned that there will be more cards locked behind a paywall like Griffey was in 17.

    To be fair to the devs the Angels got their scoreboards finished pretty late in the development cycle so I can't fault them for that.
    Also, wasn't the trout farm in one of the past two games? (I might be remembering wrong, otherwise it may still be in this game too and they haven't announced it).

    For me, the reds looked a lot better with HDR. However, it would definitely be better for the red teams to look proper for everyone, not just the players who have 4k HDR TVs.
    Never noticed the jersey thing til this thread, we all have our pet peeves for me its the pitcher blowing on his hands at Rogers Centre when the roof is closed(its not that cold up here people) it drives me nuts, for others its the kind of red used in jerseys.
    People kept bringing up rain delays year after year and we got them so people should keep bringing up the color of the Sox red jersey & at some point they'll change it.

    I liked last weeks stream better than this week. Nothing on the stream really got me excited and they kept mentioning DD and RTTS but nothing about Franchise. I'm going into the Franchise stream next month not really expecting anything.

    I remember Ramone saying Road to the Show would be the focus for the next three years (he said this before 17 came out). Like how DD had been the focus the three years before that. I guess three years is sort of the work flow to implement major changes. He basically hinted that after road to the show that Franchise would be the next mode to get a major overhaul so you probably won't see a ton for franchise until MLB 20/21/22. I expect that'll be the time when we start seeing features like expansion teams and maybe create a stadium.

    Hmm. Lotta people telling me what I should or shouldn’t care about in this thread. 🤣
    You have every right to complain in a constructive matter. The horse doesn't need to be continually beat in threads that aren't focused on the complaint you have, though.
