  1. Super stoked about this. The more and more they tease, the closer I get to preordering. I appreciate the changes they've highlighted so far but really want to see the additions to franchise. Honestly though, my outlook is WAY more positive today than it was 2 weeks ago. The game is looking good.
    The players batting stances that you pick from, are those players in game? I caught Duke Sniders name in batting stance list, was he in earlier versions of the show?
    Gonna have some stances that require superhuman powers some people will create.
    I love this so much. In my head, when I make a RTTS player, I have a whole idea in my head of how they do certain things. Being able to customize their stance is so baller.
    I imagine pitching motions will be down the pipeline, but probably not this year.
    So awesome... We legit can give everyone on the 25 man rosters, there actual stance... Or something very, very close.
    Batting Stance thread is gonna blow up this year!!
    Can't wait.

    In the Gamespot video... Ramone said if you edit someone like Puig, you keep his bat flip, etc.

    That was the biggest concern I had with this. I’m all for having accurate stances. But in past years even if a player’s stance was off I wouldn’t change it because I love the personalized HR Swings.
    When I heard you keep the bat flip I nearly jumped for joy at work

    The first thing I will probably do is go in and edit all of the created players on my team in my carry over franchise. The improved skin tones is a big plus and I'm glad they added new hair types and improved the hair that was already there.
    Good to see nose and lips cast shadows now for CAP. Hopefully they will fix the flat eye bug where sometimes the eye would appear flat VS shaded and rounded like the character scans. Looks like its still there though.
    As someone who is a batting stance connoisseur, this is awesome. I actually posted last year that I wish they would give us a batting stance creator. I could never get my batting stance in the game just right but now I will be able to. There were lots of stances in 17 I really liked for the most part but there were minor things I didn't like about them. That's no longer an issue. Well done SDS. Also, the CAPs were much better last year and this year they look even better. I'm closer and closer to pushing that pre order button. Just waiting for the franchise stream now.

    Curious if they recorded audio for him as well?
    I dont remember them ever having a foreign player in the game like that before they played their 1st game.

    Possibly they will create him and just unlock him once he makes his debut? Wonder if they will create him as a two way player.

    It has never been done, legally they can't do this I thought.
    Look at Darvish and tanaka they were not in the game will mid April.
    It would be a major pain in the arse if we have to wait for a roster update for Otani just to get the 2 way player in the game. means we all have to sit on franchises. if they just give us the option it would be much better and easier to create him ourselves
    Couldn't have asked for more. Been on my wishlist (albeit my thoughts were to use camera to import it) for a stance editor..
    Can't wait to try it out.

    I don't know the details but somehow they have his name and stance in. I'm not convinced that a batting stance is copyrighted though. Im quite sure they have checked all the boxes as to the legal issues.
    The game officially releases on the 27th and Opening day is the 29th so it won't be that long for a roster update.
    I'm sure they have a plan for him though.

    Pretty sure the roster update took 2 weeks into the season last year, it was delayed due to a lot of players having to be added, in fact with all the free agents not signed it's going to be even worse this year. and don't forget Easter is the following weekend, so I would not expect a update till April 10ish
    if batting stances can't be copyrighted then by that right guys like Torres who the only thing stopping him in injury will be in the majors should have his
    Hell another example Eric Thames stance wasn't in the game last year too, and he was in the game back in 2012.
    I think the stance isn't copyrighted but the persons name rights can't be allowed in the game, which is why we have so many vetran stance 1 generic stance 1 etc etc

    The batting stance creator leaves me hopeful they'll someday do a pitching motion/delivery creator. 🤔

    I thought about that, and for some reason that seems a lot harder unless they set certain points, can branch to those points, and can create actions in between. The batting stances here are already kind of set where they are and "loop" over and over, and all that is changing are different body parts with the same motions.
    That doesn't mean I disagree with you, though. I'd love this feature.
    And a little interesting feature Ramone mentioned is if let say Judge change his stance in July , they’ll update it through one of the roster update.
    Not sure they were able to do that in previous versions .
    Just hope we’ll be able to import players in an already started franchise to fully benefit that.

    I bet that comes next year or the year after so MLB The Show 19 or 20! :)

    Maybe for MLB 2028.
    Although... I seem to remember MLB2K12 had something like this in their game? It was pretty basic.
    It'd be perfect if they added new strides now as well.
    Because say you use a stance with a toe tap like Dee Gordon, and then you move the legs and change it into a closed stance instead of slightly open, what would happen to the stride? Would he keep the toe tap? Just thinking aloud here.

    That is where the issue lies, but remember that one year when Cutch had a haircut?? that actually changed within the game if you had already started a franchise.
    I wish we had a import player to franchise option to solve a lot of issues with this
    Im pumped! For pitching motions. I’ll be ok with no create a motion but at least give us option to pitch from stretch or windup.
    Looking forward to the batting stance. Should be a fun year!

    Don't know why but I'm super pumped to create a proper Jay Buhner batting stance.
    I love playing current and classic rosters and this is going to be awesome. This is one step towards classic roster bliss. Just need a uniform creator, stadium creator, and some classic equipment. Love this feature and cant wait to play this game
    What's interesting about "batting stance creator" is it has been in the game already for the developers as evidenced by the wide variety of accurate batting stances for players. The challenge was to make it user friendly for the general public.
    I'm sure creating ballparks is more complicated to code but we know the code exists because there are a variety of accurate ballparks including some historic ballparks. The challenge for the developers would be to make a very complicated thing user friendly enough for "ballpark creator" to be viable. It would be a fun toy to play with possibilities for people to upload their created ballpark for the community to download.
    I play a game titled Golf Club 2 in which a course creator is included and users of the game have created many real life golf courses which are very accurate depictions of the real thing.
    Could ballpark creator be the big reveal on Thursday? Probably just wishful thinking but it would be a fun thing to tinker with.

    I guess I'm a little out of the loop, gotta pittance threads to check. Is there a big reveal for tomorrow?
    Yeah i have a feeling tomorrows stream will be a borefest if they spend a lot of time going over the creator again. At this point is there anybody that cares to watch another "walkthrough" of the creator? It is okay if they go into more detail if needed but i have a feeling they will spend a lot of time creating their stances.
    However as previously stated, I want to see what this "improved" pitching looks like.
