MLB The Show 20: Game Update 1.10 Features More Fielding Tweaks and MTO Loophole Closure

As of 6 a.m. EST, SDS pushed game update 1.10 to folks. This patch continues to try and improve fielding and clean up some distracting UI elements. On top of that, the March To October loophole that was giving people double points for both the first and second leg of the Team Affinity programs has now been closed.

MLB The Show 20 Game Update 1.10

mlb the show 20 game update 1.10

General Gameplay
  • This update includes our second round of game-play improvements with various fielding and base running improvements, including more adjustments to locking into the ball marker. We are still committed to monitoring and improving what issues may remain.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed the user to initiate a “perfect jump” steal attempt in any game versus the CPU.
  • Fixed a logic decision that allowed the CPU controlled third baseman to risk a throw-out opportunity at home plate, instead of the safer throw-out to first base for the third out.

-Hopefully these latest adjustments should help folks still struggling with locking on in the field. I am curious if the base-running improvements apply to AI runners, or if it somehow changes things for users as well. Let us know what you see in that area. I know what the perfect jump exploit was — not much need to get into it now that it’s gone — and that seems like a good thing to take out of the game as well.

UI
  • Another fix made to the now-infamous HOME RUN OSD so that it doesn’t overstay its welcome.
  • Fixed an issue where an opposing team’s custom uniform could appear in Showdown immediately after completing a head-to-head game.
  • Fixed an issue where the WHIP / ERA appears to be rounded in the Standings and Statistics screen in Diamond Dynasty.
  • UI text display window adjustments to prevent pertinent information from getting cut off or truncated.
  • Added a progress tracker to the Team Affinity home menu.
  • Separated Player Programs and Prestige Programs in Diamond Dynasty to help distinguish them from one another.

-I hope this finally means the “HOME RUN” UI will now vanish so you can get the standard score bug back in the bottom right of the screen without needing to pause real quick. Otherwise, this looks like a lot of housekeeping stuff to either bring correct stats to the forefront or streamline things a bit more.

Leagues
  • The Mercy Rule can now happen in League games.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause a Network Error message display when backing out of the Message Board rapidly.
  • Fixed an issue where offline player ratings were sometimes used in-game.
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent users from selecting Starting Pitchers in the bullpen.
Conquest
  • Fixed an issue where a user’s stronghold was taken over, the team occupying it would have 0 fans.
Miscellaneous
  • Reduced the amount of XP received in Play vs Friends, Retro Mode, and Home Run Derby to be more in line with other modes.
  • Fixed a bug that was preventing players from exchanging duplicates of cards that were in their lineups.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing March to October to reward double the amount intended.
  • Notables will properly refresh for every new appearance and next game simulation in RTTS to prevent outdated information from displaying.
  • Online Notables will now display properly while holding the R2 Button during Batter Walk-Ups and will also appear accurately on Jumbotrons.
  • Minor polish to certain Presentation and Bullpen Camera angles.
  • Play by play adjustments and corrections.
  • Various uniform updates and fixes.
  • Various crash fixes.

-Some people have been grinding out Home Run Derby like crazies to get lots of XP, so SDS patched it. To put it another way, this is why we can’t have nice things like being able to get Team Affinity points from playing friendlies and league games. Some small minority of folks abuse the crap out of it, and SDS is clearly uncomfortable with that and throttles it accordingly.

-More notable, March To October will now go back to giving points to just one portion of the Team Affinity program. For this short amount of time, you could finish step one and two in the program if you beat MTO once. It was clearly an oversight, but at least they let people get some runs in before pulling the plug.

Bottom Line

On the gameplay front, this is about what should have been expected from SDS. They’re still trying to get fielding right, and while some people are grumbling about elements of hitting and pitching, base running and fielding were the weakest elements pitch to pitch.

    The banner that pops up and says "HOME RUN" on the score bug.
    The bug was that it didn't go away after hitting one when skipping the HR celebration in fast play. It was an extremely common bug in online play. You had to pause the game to clear it, or let it not happen in the first place by not skipping the scene.

    It’s good to know some other “old” guys play the game. We have to make up for the years spent with pong and handheld Mattel football. If I had the games today back then I’d of planned on staying single😀

    No more easy SBs in Showdowns???
    No more double TA points for MTO???
    This makes grinding so much more difficult now...

    So tell us what was the loophole they closed on that one?

    You got double points for TA while doing MTO's.
    Say you started at 0 TA points and went through an MTO on All Star, one play through and winning it all would get you finished with BOTH stage 1 and 2 TA's and getting all the rewards and a full 120 points.
    Instead of having to play through say 2 of them to get a player each time.
    Played one game and so for and very smooth gameplay after this new update!!! :)
    In fact the last 2 updates have made gameplay enjoyable again for me.
    Thanks SDS for trying to make the gameplay kick *** again!
    Please keep the gameplay updates coming as needed of course!!!
    nearly 51 AND paralyzed quadriplegic since 16 in high school football accident (broken neck)...
    i think that combo has to make me like double my age, 102.
    i win.
    hahahaha
    edit; great patch also from the notes and quick game i played.
    I tried the steal glitch with a handful of guys, different speeds, they delayed the runners jump. Still works on how to get a great jump and the pitcher NEVER threw over no matter what but the runner is stuck in mud so to speak. Fast guys still probably can get steals more times than not, but no more slow guys swiping bags easily.

    With the uniform update, do anyone knows if the teams in the Minor Leagues with both teams wearing home white uniforms has been addressed?

    Hold L2 and R2, tap L1 twice, hold for 3 secs, release.. 100% stolen base every time even with 0 speed guys.

    Random question. Did you ever post at stillers.com? Just noticed your name and the fact that you're a Pens fan.
    And here we have the problem with baseball. We need 15-25 year olds on this forum and young kids to love baseball the way we did growing up and it's just not happening.
    Outfield play is improved again with this patch which is great. Homerun overlay bug definitely not fixed because the first game I played against a friend it happened again.

    55. Grew up in the 70s loving baseball, lost much interest in the 90s, which has been rekindled the past several years thanks to The Show, which I rank ahead of even the great NCAA Football series as my favorite game.
    Lost interest in video games two years ago and thought I was done. But being stuck at home has got me hooked again after buying The Show on release day, first time since 2017.
    I will be hitting the halfway mark (50) this June.
    I'm glad they addressed the SP and RP issue. Now we should be able to use Othani in leagues the right way.
    * Not happy with the Mercy Rule being added to leagues. I had a 10-0 great game against a friend one time and the mercy rule ended the game.
    I do have a Older Gamer Baseball League for any of you in the "older crowd" that's interested just PM me.

    Healthy as a mule until Agent Orange reared its head. VA has been excellent. This game has been a great hobby. Now, if they’d restart the real thing my MLB TV subscription wouldn’t be going to waste.
    As for the patch, all seems fine, but I'm a little disappointed they haven't made any adjustments to pitch accuracy/consistency. Just too many pitches that miss the intended target by way too much, for my liking. I could understand if it was lower rated pitchers, but even higher rated pitchers are more inaccurate than I care for.
    Yes, in franchise there are sliders to adjust to mitigate the issue, but online and in MTO, it's ridiculous how far the ball will miss the intended target. The part I find interesting is I don't see an increase in hit batters. Maybe it's me, but if pitchers have that poor location control, shouldn't there be more hit batters too?
    I don't know, maybe it's just me. I do turn 50 later this year, so age could definitely be a factor. lol :)

    Is anyone else seeing patch 1.11? So 2 released today?

    No, just 1.10 here, and I checked for an update just now.
    Does it say 1.11 on Show 20's information screen or the update history?
    Not sure gaming at a certain age is a big deal anymore. It was once taboo to say you played videogames once you reached a certain age, not so much anymore. :)
    Back on topic: I'm not seeing much of any improvement/decline when fielding. Unfortunately, I don't think it's something that can easily be fixed... I'm sure they will improve it but issues will likely still prop-up every now and then. Having said that, I would hate to be the guy/s responsible for the fielding engine this year since it fell well short of expectations. Fixing it seem to be a tall task w/ the pressure of a huge spotlight due to the MLB Tournament stream.
    BTW - I've been having a solid good time with auto-fielding w/ manual throwing. I was really hesitant to change from manual to auto for fear of losing part of the experience but I'm past that now.
    Stay safe all!

    43 here. My wife actually got into gaming a couple years ago and games more than I do now. Lol In fact I got her a new monitor for Christmas.
    Here's how quickly the years pile up:
    I was about 15 when games like Frogger, Asteroids, Pole Position etc were introduced at the mall arcades.
    I turned 56 last month.
    At least I don't have to spend endless baggies of quarters anymore.
    Also wanted to chime in ...
    I'll be 44 next month and while my eyes and stick skills aren't as strong as they used to be, I'm still pushing forward. I try to get in at least one Show franchise game every day and the wife doesn't mind because she's busy binging on Netflix or Hulu.

    My wife walked in the room when I saw this post and asked why I was smiling, so I showed her. She spent a few minutes picking out a Blu-ray to watch and said “is that smile frozen on your face?” I said “No this is a different smile imagining what my life could have been had I known the future of sports gaming.” She said “Different?, you play the games now“. At that moment my soon to be 18 year old said “ Ma, he said he’d have never married, had more money, less bills, more food and less aggravation. Oh and he’d use the extra money to rent female companionship as needed.” Now I have more aggravation, no companionship, no dinner and a PS4 controller stuck up my ***! On the bright side in a few months unknowingly to Big Mouth, Ill have my man cave! 😜
    I just played my first game (franchise) since the patch and had two similarly-boneheaded auto baserunning decisions made. My two slowest players, Grandal and Abreu, made breaks for second base on over-throws to 1B when there was never going to be a chance for them to be safe. Not sure if this is patch-related, or just a RNG quirk in auto baserunning, but wanted to post in case others have similar issues.
    My Missus walked into my games room and asked who I was talking to?
    I asked her in future , not to interrupt my "press conferences"
    I am 49...and a half...
    I don't feel so old being 45 now! But I like my age, I was in early grade school in 1981, meaning I was a kid during the golden age of arcades. Also been playing annual MLB titles since the All-Star Baseball series for the N64, and updating my homemade Giants stats on Baseball Simulator 1.000 before that (and similarly maxing out stats on Baseball Stars).
    ...but I digress. I played one game of franchise and the outfield play feels even better to me, it feels like they're gliding much better into their catch animations. Seemed like the CPU defense got handcuffed on certain plays a little more frequently, but maybe it was just that game. And the '83 Giants home helmets still have orange bills, but that's not a deal breaker for me.

    Turn 64 in July. This game is what we always dreamed of having when we were kids with dice and playing cards. Not going to give up playing it any time soon. Wife has her games on her tablet/ I pad whatever, so where is the harm. Livin' the dream.........
    71 here. Started gaming years ago with my son with Atari 2600....my son is now 46, making 6 figures and is vice president of the company he works for. LOL, i'm still gaming and I swear if he stopped over to rekindle our gaming fun...he'd still kick my ***.
    BTW, a few years ago dumped my Xbox for a PS/4 for one reason....MLB the Show. Don't regret it for a second.
    Turning 51 in June.
    I’m from the Netherlands, have been playing baseball since I was 7, and been gaming since pong. Owned pretty much all console, commodore 64 and whatnot
    Love playing this game with all the classic rosters out there now.
    On topic : only played one game since the patch, so far nothing weird happened.
    Ok... Now I’m officially worried that we (+40 year olds) are the generations that are keeping baseball alive. Both of my kids would rather watch random YouTube videos or play Fortnite vs. sit down and watch baseball. :(
    Back on topic (again): Played (4) games last night and the fielding is so much better! I didn’t have a single instance of bonehead flyball errors or my fielders not picking up the ball. Hoping for the best here!

    Darn Auto baserunning is now broken after the patch. It is auto canceling.

    Haven’t experienced that yet but I don’t like on wild pitches they won’t even attempt to run now. Even on really wild pitches, the base runner 2nd guesses himself.
    This is playing so good for me now that the fielding issues are few and far between. I've been able to find my strikeouts on Legend meter pitching consistently with a couple of slider tweaks - I really prefer that over tweaking HOF to be tougher because the Legend meter is quite a bit harder to get perfect accuracy on. That was really the only part of the game I was having issues with, and while it likely wasn't anything that was adjusted in this patch, I've had enough time with the game now to experiment and figure it out. :)
    ....38, btw. Feels like I should get off most of you guys' lawns. :wedgie:

    Since all of yall are so old. What was it like watching Babe Ruth play?

    He was amazing, one of a kind! The sound of the ball off the bat was like none other. Imagine a quack and a thump at the same time. Nice man too.
    Not sure if anyone else is seeing problems with fielding again.
    the problems im having are:
    1) liners to the outfield that bounce in front of the fielder, the fielder does not bring his glove out to catch the ball after the bounce.
    2) slow bloopers that land right behind a infielder causing the infielder to freeze allowing the blooper to actually drop for a base hit.
    My game playing GREAT after the latest patch.
    No issues fielding, and I feel like the frame rate is much better than it was in the patches prior to this.
    Maybe a placebo effect, but it seems way better, and this is allowing me better timing in my hitting.
    I have kept everything the same, including my silders, and the game is more responsive and the fielding is great for me.
    I would still like some attention to be paid to the Pure Analog Throwing, as there are some issues to be worked out there. I want so badly to turn that meter back on, but errors for no reason just does not make sense to me, with the rest of the game now running so smoothly.
    Thank you to SDS for addressing the outfielder animations. I am really enjoying my time with the game now.
    Oh, 50 year old here. Been playing since the Atari/Intellivision debut. For those who are in the same genre, I have all of my Intellevision games still, with all the instruction books (remember when those came with the game?) AND... AND... ALL of the slide-in overlay cards that went in the controllers and covered the input pad. I have fired it up recently, and with the adapter from the cable input to the TV/two prong attachment, the game still runs perfectly.
    For the young guys complaining about MLBTS's grass color, the angle of the sun in a 7pm August game, and the bullpen chairs being the wrong color... look up the Intellevision Baseball gameplay videos on YouTube, and see the baseball game we had in the 70's and early 80's. Those graphics were sick!!

    Yeah it looks like whatever they did broke auto base running. It was really good befor this latest patch now it feels like it went back to last year. Way too conservative. Guys are not even going for second on balls that go back to the screen.
    Hopefully they fix it

    Does the base running speed slider have any bearing on this? I noticed pre-last update that on 5, guys we’re making stupid decisions and getting thrown out at an unrealistic clip. When I lowered to 4 it was perfect. I’m just wondering??...

    you know I did the same exact thing. guys were getting thrown out at second easily on a base hit where the runner was gonna score and they cut of the throw to the plate. I had the slider at 5 and dropped it to 4 just like you did and it looked fine. The patch then went through and now it plays like last year with guys either going back to their base or just frozen waiting for the ball to drop.

    I saw that before the patch.

    Well, yeah this happened. So much for anything actually being fixed. I am so tired of this crap from SDS.
    '20 has the potential to be a fantastic game. I love everything about it except for this broken fielding crap. Until this is fixed for real I just can't play this anymore. This was a walk off loss in the 9th. Over an hour of my life wasted playing to loose like this?! Really just unacceptable.
    Downloading '19 as I post this and will NEVER pick this game up day 1 ever again.

    This was not a "loss" this was a broken game being broken.

    Auto fielding bro...... I changed that 2 or 3 years ago and while it’s removing a aspect of the game to a degree it removes bone headed things like that from happening and makes the game more enjoyable for me

    Things stand out more in a loss, especially if it's an issue that directly caused the loss.

    I should not and will not play a game that cost $60 in way that I dont want to because the game is broken. I bought this game to PLAY Baseball not have the CPU play for me. That might work for you but it is not the way I want to play. If that bothers you for some reason, well thats just your problem.

    This is why I've been saving the game in the ninth inning every game. Things like this happen and I won't waste an hour of my life to lose a game on a broken animation that honestly should NEVER happen. If something like this happens in the ninth to cost me a game, hell no. I shut that **** off and go back to the ninth inning save point. Not losing a game because the cpu decided it was time for me to not pick up the ball.

    Going auto fielding is a good temporary solution but I think it’s fair to be pretty frustrated with the game and SDS at this point if you still can’t play the way you prefer because part of it is broken. I’m an auto fielding guy too so this doesn’t really effect me but I don’t think many other people would be very happy having to change how they play to avoid issues with the game either, and I don’t think it’s so bad for people to keep voicing their frustrations with it with examples of it still happening until it’s fixed.
    Easier to say just switch and not take it as a big deal when it’s not how you like to play the game that has the issues.

    Yeah. Sorry I was coming off as an ***. Really.
    Frustration with the game and life at the moment got the better of me. I lashed out and you really didn't deserve it.
    Peace?

    Really hoping if another patch is released they add back the team win/loss records on the daily games screen.
    Really am missing those.

    If they fix those 2 issues and replace the fictitious managers with their real life counterparts, this game would be near perfect in my opinion.
    The problem with fielding this year is the animation was a new feature. Just like with cars and other products, bugs come with new features too. SDS will get them ironed out. We just have to remain patient until it is.

    No guarantee of that. There are still issues from past years that haven't been fixed.
