  1. what do they mean with " updated all 30 MLB team mug shots from spring training" ??? what does that mean? would have been great if the first update fixed the minor league options issue too bad. i know its usually a small first update but i would have thought this could have been done possibly? is there something so complex under the hood to do this one? id assume they are at least aware of it.

    Is there any word on Gavin Lux no longer being on a milk carton?

    Not unless you have an informant at SDS lol hopefully there will be a roster Update for release day tomm. Complete speculation though.

    Disappointing that the OSD stats have not been fixed. For me something like this is not ok. Ruins the game.

    Sorry I can't keep up with all the lingo what's osd stats?

    Hard to explain how something like this gets thru testing. Then again, SDS gameplay stream was Battle Royale/DD so I guess they didn't even look at Franchise. It is disappointing because the game is really great this year. Anyhow, I have faith it will be fixed quickly.
    From what I've noticed so far, the batter stats that pop up when they are walking to the plate are wrong, it shoes the 2019 stats but they are not correct for the player. Some saying it shows the previous batters stats, not sure if that's correct but the stats are always wrong. Killer.
    I am now noticing zero frame rate drop during cutscenes or gameplay. I think this is part of the “polishing” SDS did for Release Day pt 2.
    Playing on balanced HDR off on Samsung 55” UHD (2016 model).
    It’s disappointing that franchise doesn’t even get day 1 fixes anymore, meanwhile most bugs should have been caught before early release.
    But as long as people keep buying packs, who cares amirite?

    They either don't regression test franchise game play, or they do test it, but then choose to ignore the problems. It's not just the "On Screen Display" that is buggered, the "Dugout" view camera for franchise manage games ceases to work as well. A defect was raised on the Show nation site and it remains to be seen if it will be fixed. In the mean time I am using the "Backstop" camera as a replacement.
    PS: The "Dugout" camera view does work in RTTS games. It's only franchise manage games that it is broken. But I don't want to sound all doom and gloom (unlike the MSM who is peddling their panic virus). I am actually pretty impressed with what I have seen with MLBTS20. :y220b:

    So No sell cards are still locked in then :(

    That wasn’t a bug, it was a decision they made. They talked about it on one of the prerelease streams.
    I’ll say this, the OSD glitch is annoying as hell. But the game technically doesn’t drop until tomorrow.
    So if they have a patch to fix it by tomorrow, I’ll be fine with it. But if not, then I’ll be the first to complain. You definitely shouldn’t have problems with on screen stats in Franchise. That’s a somewhat important fix.

    The game technically dropped last week. The company that makes it distributed it and opened their servers, while up-charging for the privilege to use the product, to anyone that wished to pay $79.99. It’s been released. It’s a thing. Anything you see is what the final product was. Anything that is patched in moving forward is an amendment to that final released product released for purchase to the general public.
    No free passes. I’d be even more pissed if I paid extra, only to find out that the stock rosters are nearly unusable and the OSD’s are jacked up. To go along with any other issues that have to be fixed. We aren’t beta testers once we pay for the product. The public that pays less for the product shouldn’t benefit from a more complete service as a result of the ones who paid extra finding and pointing out glitches and flaws.

    I agree,gone are the days when games are playable out of the box .I just started a season with NHL 20 after waiting for patches and new rosters game has been out for 5 months. Maybe these game should be put out every 2 years instead of every year. Not much difference each year.

    it's a double-edged sword, also gone are the days when a buggy game was released and no way to make it playable. I imagine it's like it is for sports games now is 1) game coding is ton more complex than 15 years ago, and 2) one year cycles to build the game. not excusing it but these are 2 huge reasons
    Just pissed me off that I paid $20 to get the game 4 days early that is not a finished product,we should get our money back.Those minor league roster are not what are advertised.

    Or, assume that the game will be buggy and not spend the money until after release date?

    Maybe I've just become more patient with age, but I can't imagine spending $20 for getting a game 4 days early, particularly since EVERY YEAR it takes a few weeks for all of the major issues to be patched. I'm going to wait this one out.
    So my guess is another small update by friday involving any online or diamond dynasty card issues once the onslaught of online tuesday release players join in the frey..i only play offline so i wouldnt expect to see anything fixed like the OSD bug and minor league options issue for at least the rest of march if not till after opening day( both of these are so upsetting, becuase they are easily fixable).. to be honest though the only thing i can see them fixing related to franchise before then if at all is any type of flaw from the relocation options..if something is needing correcting there..

    Exactly why I now wait instead of preordering. I’m still enjoying my franchise on 19 with a great roster and slider set. I’m sure I will eventually buy 20 once some of the bugs are patched, and Mike Lowe releases his slider set... maybe even get it once the price drops. For now I’ll stick to 19 to get my baseball fix.

    I have never pre-ordered a game for the same reason but I was working night shift for 3 days after the pre-release date and knew I would be able to get in some very solid time. So I pre-ordered and was disappointed to find out the advertised rosters would not be out until this coming weekend.

    I didn't start a season up by Sunday like I had wanted, but I definitely got my money's worth with the 4 early days. and I expect rosters to be updated by this afternoon. also, with no other roster update to worry about for the foreseeable future (May?), SDS's roster guy got plenty of time to make this roster tight as can be. but you're right, at the moment they haven't lived up to being worthy of what they were being passed off to be

    I admit it doesn't look as likely now. I really thought it would happen earlier this morning. still, it's just a little after 9 in the morning in San Diego. I'll give 'em a couple more hours, but after that, the gloves come off :lol:

    Good examples in here as to why there's fewer developer interactions, and why longtime OS'ers don't post much anymore.

    Oh lord. Your going to be that guy? A core mode, and a new and shiny feature that they sold the game on are not working properly. A lot of people paid $80 to get this game early to enjoy these features. Yet they can keep rolling out new DD prospect cards but they can’t provide a fix for the $80 we already spent? And we are the ridiculous ones?
    Okay..... got it

    Yes, long time Show fan, but have to agree here. Could have been a hell of a lot cleaner release for us. Just look at the managers/coaches that are in the game. Are they telling us that this will remain the same and there will be no update???? People have already started franchises.

    That's the frustrating part for me. I was sold on this and have never preordered. Getting my pre-order money back should be the minimum at this point.
    First game after patch yielded a total of 7 homeruns between myself and the Astros.
    It also resulted in the Astros beaning 3 of my batters :mad:

    FWIW Ramone tweeted years ago that him and the other devs were asked to not post specifics here anymore so he isn’t able to say much. This is more common in all of the subsections of the forums, not just MLBTS. Sure there are a few bad eggs here but nobody ran them out of town with torches and pitchforks.

    For me, I'm just a franchise player, could care less about all the DD stuff, but I'm willing to pay an extra $20. I'm a baseball junkie. I was at least expecting a new patch when I woke up and powered up the PS this morning, but......nada. Isn't there normally a big patch on the official release day?

    I believe this patch..1.03...was the release day patch for '20.
    I would expect the next patch to be around the first part of April. Just a guess.

    If that’s true a big ‘booooo’ from me. You’d think after all these years someone would have spent some time updating the pencil necked gargoyle looking managers and coaches so they at least didn’t look like they belong in Interplay Baseball over a decade ago. What an eyesore for this great looking game. So, if you are hoping to see real managers/coaches in the game (and that’s a maybe), hold off a couple weeks.

    Well we combined for 7 homeruns. I hit 2 and the Astros hit 5, with Altuve hitting two of them.
    I use Zone hitting with the WIDE batting camera.

    Yea its really sad. You have coaches/managers that were hired in October and aren't in the game yet? Really, no excuse. Little stuff like this and missing prospects (even top ones!) when you advertise full minor rosters hurts credibility. It's hard to start a franchise right now because I want correct managers and players not fake Nickelodeon looking players. This generation of gaming as been overall lackluster. Its just an excuse for companies to release unfinished games while charging out the a$$ and taking months to update...if at all. It's just insanely frustrating for an offline gamer.

    Are managers/coaches patched in or are they done via a roster update?
    Just asking because I honestly don't know how they are added to the game.
    And for the record, I have nothing other than personal opinion to go on when I state that patch 1.03 is the release day patch and that another patch is a couple of weeks away. That is purely speculation and my thoughts on when it may happen. For all I know they could release a patch tomorrow, later this week, later this month, or not until June.
    Last I checked, no game released in this era of gaming has been perfect. They all have issues. This patch came out and we should be happy it did. There's no telling when the next one will drop, due to the unprecedented nature of what's transpiring in our world right now.
    Are there things that I wish were in the game or working as intended? Of course, but I'm happy to let it all slide and embrace the fact that while all real-life sports are on hiatus, I can lose myself inside the virtual baseball diamond for hours at a time.
    SCEA has a track record of doing right by its fans, even if you bring up legacy issues they haven't touched or they focus more on certain modes than others. They can't please everyone, but to say they're not trying their best or committed to putting forth the best product possible, isn't fair.
    Try and make the best of what we have and again, celebrate the fact that this game is available for us to play.
    I played Detroit/San Diego and I was killing it with the Padres. Everything I hit was a Home Run/Double or a fly out. Everything the CPU hit was an opposite field fly out or a home run. I tried using the sliders I saved from MLB 16 then I played Cubs/Nationals and there were doubles/bloop singles/a lot of opposite field hits but no ground outs to the infield. So it looks like this new patch won't fix anything.

    You must be a DD player. That’s the only way I can think you’d be able to justify the mentality “just be lucky we have something”. Franchise players like me are meant to use workarounds in a core mode that isn’t working properly this year, that was working fine last year. Right now you can’t even do a proper rebuild because any prospect you send down before spring training right now goes on waivers and you essentially lose them for nothing (this is against the actual roster rules of baseball).
    Sure. Have a glass half full attitude if you like. But to act like everyone else who spent $60-$80 for this product should just be happy with what we got is ludicrous
    Edit: so if I sale you a car I advertise as brand new, and the transmission is shot, should I reply to your complaints with “well at least it starts. You should be lucky in these times with what’s going on that it even starts”

    I've been hitting quite a few homeruns along with some oppo shots on default legend. Ronald Acuna has been hitting about 1 a game through my first 10 games or so. So far could be the game replicating last years homerun output.
    However, I've noticed myself and the computer have been a little on the lighter side as far as scoring and total hits.

    This was the first game where I saw a power surge like this. In fact, I was thinking prior that homerun totals have been down versus that of '19

    Having perfect’s will impact these numbers, you get perfect more often then not you’ll get a solid hit (home runs)
    Little bit less reliant on the dice roll

    It’s weird that you and purist are seeing these results as I am experiencing the complete opposite. The majority of my hits are doubles and singles and I am rarely getting home runs, but scoring a ton of runs (7 in my last game). Must be something with zone hitting, because I am using directional and even guys like franmil Reyes and pete Alonso are displaying warning track power at best. I am even considering cranking up the power slider

    Like I said this was the first game where I saw that big of a surge in power. I've played 7 games now in Spring Training and the 7 combined homeruns (again I only hit 2) in this game were more than I've seen hit combined in the other 6 games.
    Like you most of my hits were doubles and singles, with a triple sprayed in there and then occasionally a homerun.
    I do know the wind was blowing out to right field in this game, but 5 of the 7 homeruns were hit to left field. :)
    I think its just a product of sample size and other factors.
    Still hitting way too many home runs on default HOF. (Both zone and Directional). Issue to me seems to be too many mistake pitches over the heart of the plate by CPU pitchers no matter their ratings.
    Sent from my iPhone using Operation Sports
    Starting to think homeruns may need to be patched. I've had quite a few games now with back to back homeruns. In the last game I played, I hit 4 in a row. The CPU and I combined for 8 homeruns before even the 8th inning. This is on default legend.

    Same here. I'm up to HOF+ on dynamic difficulty using directional and score 9 runs my last game with 4 HRs. Seems like hitting is quite a bit easier this year

    For those complaining about the game having issues out of the box, be thankful we have patches that fix things. I remember having MLB 2k13 for the XBox that had a glitch where a fielder for the CPU would hold onto the ball and not throw home while base runners were rounding third and heading home. We were stuck with that, because there were no patches to fix it. In the history of video games, there has never been the perfect game. This one is no exception, but it is by far the best baseball game on the market. It may take time, but I’m glad Sony listens to us and fixes many of the problems.

    I don’t know about that. Nintendo first party games are rarely patched today. If there was a game without glitches it would be from them.

    - Pitch speed slider has more range.
    - When swinging early on an outside pitch, fly balls and line drives that would be labeled ‘Rolled Over’ will now be labeled ‘Out in Front’.
