    They usually archive them, so I'm expecting this one will be as well.

    Today at 5PM EST/2PM PST, SDS is doing a twitch stream to recap the community input of the closed Alpha test for MLB The Show 18.
    Sorry I don't have any links to share. Not sure there are any links.

    That stream was exactly what it said on the tin FYI. No gameplay or anything, just Ramone discussing the feedback from the closed alpha. It won't mean much to you if you weren't in that alpha.
    Hinted at a gameplay stream in the next few weeks.
    Things I took from this stream:
    * PCI has been changed
    * Swing Feedback changed
    * New catcher animations (hinting that passed balls have been addressed)
    * 1,000+ new animations in the game this year
    * Catcher throwing has been changed
    Really looking forward to the Gameplay Stream.
    of course some silly people posted some of the Alpha on youtube and got banned, but what I seen of it up on youtube nothing really to see that is new at all. so we just have to wait till February this is about the time of year I start to get excited again for baseball

    Yeah, but Ramone basically said that most of the new stuff was not in the Alpha. Animations, options, art updates, etc. All stuff that is in the build they are developing from now wasn't included in the Alpha. Their objective for the alpha was to get feedback on hitting and on network issues.
    Good news for online folks, he said the Alpha did indeed reveal problems that would have not been revealed until launch day had they not done the Alpha. Stuff they now have a couple months to resolve prior to release.
    Mlb the show is hands down the best sports game on the market. I don’t understand all of the criticism and complaining each year from the cry babies.

    Well...this should spark interesting conversation.

    Ahh yes consumers voicing their opinions, tis such a terrible thing.
    Back on topic: Really glad to see them doing an Alpha, it's a very smart move from a game development point and pr move to involve the community. Hopefully this means a much more smooth year in terms of bugs and servers.

    I dont want to hash on this too much as its off topic...but do want to say one thing. The things that need to be change on this game are apparent and have been addressed. I very much understand where the fans of this game are coming from. With that said, I have NEVER seen a production team work so hard with their fan base to give them the best product possible. It will NEVER be perfect and people will always not like something, but I give massive props to the team to try and make it the best. And in that, ESPECIALLY after playing some other companies sports games this year, the Show is indeed the best sports game on the market.
    In terms of the stream, thank you for those who took part in the beta to help make this game better than the one before. I'm anxious to see some gameplay build. The past ball issue seems like it will be addressed which is huge.

    Good one. It IS a great game and as long as people present their concerns/dislikes in a mature manner there is absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. Calling people cry babies, though. That's wrong. The good and bad criticism have helped this game and I don't think the developers just want to listen to praise, or defense of their product.
    It can only get better.
    I know its a small thing but I'm interested in seeing the changes made in pitchers covering the plate on passed balls and wild pitches.

    I've felt like for the last 8 or 9 years the Show has been the best game out there. But it really is easy to understand criticism for any great game, not just limited to the Show. No game no matter how great, can be everything to everyone. Some of the people critiqueing the Show that love the Show, simply want the game to continue to evolve and have only been made to feel that way by SDS and their own desire for the same. Probably the only difference in the two is the timetable. Also, there are plenty of people that arent happy unless they're complaining. Thats just a part of human nature. Like it or not, it is what it is.
