MLB The Show 20 Patch 1.14 Available, Team Provides Update For Summer Circuit

MLB The Show 20 game update 1.14 is available, weighing in at just over 40MB. It includes a fix for a bug that caused “My Sliders” settings, to carry over and into Tournament games. Nothing more, nothing less. Just a heads up for those wanting to know.

The team also took the opportunity to acknowledge some of the issues that came up during the MLB The Show 20 Summer Circuit.

First and foremost, we have been working with ESL and have made sure the difficulty settings are correct moving forward. Starting with the 2nd Qualifier on 6/27, difficulty will be set to Hall of Fame and we have ensured that tournament gameplay sliders are uniform for all players (Update 1.14 – see below). Also, the issue that prevented matches from being properly reported and stopping some users from continuing on in the qualifier has been resolved.

Second, we are adding a 6th Qualifier starting August 4th where the top 8 winners will be eligible to compete in the Grand Finals.

Lastly, starting with the 3rd Qualifier on 7/11, start times will be 12pm PT / 3pm ET.

    it also doubley broke my game. now it causes too many HR's AND not enough HR's :y220d:
    wait, I guess that makes it a wash. nevermind :google:
    I noticed since the new patch I haven't been able to hit at all. played 4 games against the astros and 3 against the rays never scored more than three runs, This was the last week of my yankee season. I believe they did mess up the hitting, just great. Just in time for the play offs. What a bunch of BS.
    Since patch..I have what I think is a bug, maybe not.
    All my games players are wearing long sleeves and temps are in 36 to 40 range ..don’t matter wether it’s Atlanta or Miami ( I’m in June on the schedule)
    Anyone see this...

    No temps are normal in my games.
    Early May and in San Diego a night game started in the 60's. In St.Louis, played a Sunday day game with temp in the 70's

    One inning. Pete Alonso didn’t hit a HR in his first at bat, something is wrong

    40 games. Different teams - Yankees, White Sox, Braves.
    Whereas the Yankees would hit perfect line drives at 102-113MPH, they’re now down on launch angle and/or not going as far.
    Hitting has changed.
    PCI for user looks smaller again, like it was after patch 1.12. Every patch changes gameplay in some way.

    Umm.....ok

    If some are saying that "hitting has changed" (in my case, a launch angle / power outage) - and those of us who have played the game a lot - while others say "it's exactly the same", how do you rationalize it?
    Did they increase the difficulty at certain levels (Veteran/All-Star/etc.)?

    I rationalize it as placebo effect.
    I've played nearly 300 games of MLB '20 and I've played quite a few after this latest patch. I don't see a difference in hitting now prior to patch 1.14.
    And considering the patch notes do not specify any changes to the gameplay, just a bug fix, I don't believe based on what the devs say and my experience that anything gameplay related has changed.
    I don't buy into the "changes were made but not listed on patch notes" theory.

    You're beating a dead horse. He never sees these things and always blames them on placebo.
    I've noticed the changes in hitting as well, the pci has literally changed every single patch.

    The thing is I've backed up my claims by providing videos and photos of before and after patches.
    You don't agree with me, that's fine, but don't try to portray me as someone who ignores changes just for the sake of ignoring, stirring the pot, or argument sake.
    Thanks

    As have I. I posted pictures as well of the pci and in my opinion it has changed basically every patch.

    I play MoM and I was wondering if anyone has noticed something about fielding.
    I am seeing a lot more balls bouncing off fielders, especially infielders, but I've seen singles bounce off outfielders on occassion when they go to field the hop. It happens several times every game to both teams.
    Is this something new with the patch? I don't remember seeing it before, at least not at this frequency, but maybe I just didn't notice.

    I haven't seen anything different post patch versus what was happening before.
    Question...in regards to the outfielders and the ball bouncing off of them on a hop, are they running in to field a short hop?
    I'm wondering if you're seeing more of the new fielding animation where the risk/reward of fielding a ball in the outfield on a hop bounce off the fielder if he doesn't play it right?

    I play MOM. I have one fielder whose fielding attributes aren’t that good and when a grounder is hit to him I close my eyes and hope for the best, but otherwise I’m not seeing anything unusual at all.

    In a game last night, Springer was running in at a moderate pace to field a short fly to CF. It wasn't a dive attempt, which I was glad about since it was obvious he wouldn't have caught it. The ball hit the ground then he muffed it as he was fielding it. The ball rolled toward the infield after that about 2 steps away from Springer.
    Oddly, at the time he muffed it, the batter was on first. In the time it took Springer to go 2 steps toward 2b and pick up the ball and throw it a short distance, the batter was sliding into 2nd. IMO, there is no way that runner should have tried for 2b, much less made it, especially with a speed of 57. The ball was just too shallow and the CF was coming toward second.

    I played the Astros vs Oakland last night and Oakland's Chapman who has exceptional rating had 2 bounce off his glove as he dove for them. Understandable, just not something I had noticed before.
    It didn't matter though for the batter. On the first one the ball bounced back half way to the pitcher and Chapman who was on the ground in fould territory still had time to get up, run to the ball and throw the batter out. I guess the 74 speed runner twisted an ankle enroute or something.
    The second time the ball hit off his glove, again as he was diving, rolled about half way to the dugout and again he had time to get up, chase the ball down and throw the runner out at first.
    The running speed of runners seems a bit inconsistant but that's a story for another day.

    That sounds like one of the new fielder animations tied to the risk/reward feature

    If they call taking a conservative approach to fielding a ball a risk/reward play, what do they call diving for the ball?
    It was what I would call a routine play. The ball was right in front of him, hit the ground about 2 steps from where he was. He just muffed it when it got to his mitt. He fielded it the way I would have.
    Anyway, I was just wondering if it was a recent addition. Guess not. I'm not complaining about it.

    The risk/reward is more prevalent when manual fielding because a red indicator flashes to signal that diving for the ball may result in you missing it and it going past your fielder.
    If you don’t dive then there is a chance the short hop will handcuff the fielder thus causing him to muff the catch.

    There's something wrong in fielding...pitcher was going for the ball after broken bat hit... warps, misses the ball and runner advances to 1st. Also had a game earlier where RF reached for the ball over his shoulder, missed the ball and instead of grapping the ball (it was right next to him), he just stood there staring at the wall..
    Players warping has happened sometimes during atleast the last two patches. Haven't cost a game yet tho but it's only a matter of time..

    I've had the OF stare at the wall thing happen a few times. It isn't new though. It was happening on release.
    I've played over 250 games this year. I see no changes to hitting. There are ebbs and flows to the game. I know I went on a streak of 20-30 games I couldn't hit and seemed like i was only getting warning track power. I thought power was adjusted. Then one game it all came back with a flourish.
    One thing I am noticing is in season 2 of this franchise after patch, I'm not seeing any in game injuries. I'm playing with slider at 8 and I'm in mid May and have yet to see an injury. The 1st season I played I was getting tons.

    Fair enough.. But players warping/glitching across the screen has been happening only recently. No idea what's causing it with auto fielding.

    I've seen this too. For the most part (unfortunately) I've ignored it.
    It's kind of odd that the game was in really good shape up until 1.12/1.13, and now 1.14 is - for me - kind of a mess. Maybe the developers were bored with the delayed season. As they say, the developers are "in a real funk."
    I play the game for fun - more so than many of you who are serious and keep difficulty high (which is required for online gaming).
    For me, the glitches + gameplay changes (harder) have driven me away for the time being.
    I've played a zillion games (ok, not quite - but you get the point).
    Hitting - zero change. Nothing impacted at all. I have actually had to make the cpu pitching more difficult, and add some added pop to the cpu's bats.
    Fielding - I'm now seeing these random warping glitches that I had never seen before, most notably with outfielders coming in for hard liners that drop in front of them. This is now a problem.
    Otherwise - I absolutely am having a blast with this game. Last night I played with my 1997 roster. Kansas City (cpu) at White Sox. Random game. Long story short, I blow a lead as my bullpen blew up. Down 1 bottom of the 9th. Jeff Montgomery comes in for KC to close. He walks the first batter (he struggled that season in real life). Next guys singles. Next guy grounds out. LH batter Dave Martinez - and I crush the most perfectly timed hit of a hanging curve to deep right center. Walkoff HR winner - I win 7-5. In games like this you just have to enjoy it - either way. But man, what a feeling when it happens!
    Not sure if it is the most recent update but my franchise mode now lags/freezes for a few seconds every half inning and has made the game virtually unplayable. Any ideas as to why?

    Could your drive be going bad?
    Can you run the game off an external drive to see if that's better?
    Note - this never happened to me on my PS4, but did happen on my XBOX, and after moving games to an external Seagate drive, the lag/skip went away.
    Side-note - replacing an internal XBOX drive is an absolute nightmare. Upgrading/replacing the PS4 drive was super incredibly simple, except it took time to move games >> backup the core stuff >> install PS4 software >> restore core >> move games back
