MLB The Show 22 Patch #6 Available Today - Patch Notes

MLB The Show 22 patch #6 is available today featuring some gameplay adjustments and a few fixes in other modes. Not mentioned in the notes Jordan 5’s and ASICS cleats have been added.

Check out the patch notes below.

GENERAL GAMEPLAY

  • Hitters will have slightly less foul ball coverage, resulting in more swing and misses.
  • Fixed a freeze that could occur on foul tips that bounced near the catcher.
  • Users are now limited to pressing R2 to view pitch types once per pitch, for up to three seconds.
  • Wind has been turned off in Online Rated games.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the “Can’t Pitch” icon to become stuck on screen.
  • On balls hit in the air where runners stop to see if it is landing or getting caught, instead of going back to the previous base, runners will advance ONE base when the ball is clearly not going to be caught by the outfielder.
  • Adjustments made to gesture timing for splitters and sinkers when using Pinpoint pitching. Splitters now have a more lenient criteria for perfect pitches, while sinkers now have a less lenient criteria for perfect pitches.

DIAMOND DYNASTY

  • Fixed an issue which allowed a pitcher to get into a position player slot in the lineup.

MINI SEASONS

  • Fixed a bug that would cause the away team to always wear home uniforms.

CO-OP

  • Improvements made to game stability.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the substitution prompt to display for the incorrect user.

BALLPLAYER

  • If a user changes from a two-way to a one-way player the correct archetype will now be available in the loadout screen. Any missing archetypes prior to this update should now display correctly.

FRANCHISE AND MARCH TO OCTOBER

  • Minor improvements made to two-way player logic.

  1. More swings and misses? I can only speak for manage mode but offense is too low in the 100 games I've played so far.
    The last thing we need is more swings and misses unless they have added more offense elsewhere.
    Don't mind the foul ball coverage change. There are still too many cases of balls being completely outside of the PCI (including the outer vision one) getting fouled off or weakly put into play. Those should be misses, full stop - when they aren't it goes against the meaning of the vision rating because that's what that outer PCI circle represents. That didn't make any sense from a competitive OR sim perspective.
    Figures that I finally start having success hitting online and they're changing it. Scored 17 runs on 37 hits in 5 games tonight. Had 36 runs and 61 hits in my first 18 ranked games this year. So I mean, not good. But way better.
    Hopefully runners will try and take an uncovered 3B from 2B when I try and sacrifice now.

    Also playing on MOM, I see a variety of games, some low and some high scoring games. I'm on default with adjusted injuries. Definitely don't see a problem with a lack of offense

    Also a Manage mode player and Im not seeing a problem with offense. Last nights game for instance ended 10 to 7. Ive had plenty of good scoring high hit games. Almost to many. I think manage mode is playing great this year. SDS roster (4/29), AS default (minus 1 wind) settings.
    Interested in the foul balls however. That one I notice some games are in the high 30% area which is a little much and and really causes high pitch inning counts.
    I'll be interested to see the feeback on the foul ball changes. My concern is how much this may alter hitting all together.
    I've had my settings and gameplay dialed in now for a bit so I'm hesitant to download any patches effecting gameplay.
    Thank goodness they turned down the amount of foul balls hit completely outside of PCI coverage. Already played two DD games and have noticed a difference. Good job.

    I’m about halfway through my first game since downloading and haven’t been able to make good contact with anything so far. I have 1 hit and no runs thru 6 innings, and the one hit I had was an infield single that I legged out. That being said I am playing against Montas of the A’s. So it could just be me facing a really good pitcher. Really don’t have enough of a sample size to say. I have swung and missed a lot of balls right down the middle though.
    Just scored 10 against at the cardinals with 14 hits…can’t say the patch has reduced offence at all IMO.
    I’m glad there’ll be more swing and miss as it’ll reflect real life baseball more.

    This has never happened before and now has happened in three straight games. I don’t know if this is patch related but it’s been happening since I downloaded the patch this morning. It kicks me back to the Home Screen each time making it so I can’t play a franchise game.

    Same here....I've tried 5 straight times and powered off/back on. The suggested action is to check for updates....this is after the update/patch, so I think it must be related to the new patch.

    Same here. I'm on PS4. Played just fine yesterday.
    It's a little thing, but they fixed the team colors on the scorebug in DD. It's now using a team's primary color again instead of a secondary or tertiary color.

    The first post in the other thread about that said they were on XBOX game pass. But the majority of cases reported here have been PS4. Also, there are at least two of us who have the PS5 version and aren't having the issue.
    I think this is all pointing to a server snafu, because going offline helped me get my PS4 version into a franchise game.

    I’m having the same issue after update. I’m on PS4 as well.
    I disconnected from the internet and was able to play franchise.
    I’m sure an update is coming soon to fix this.

    Same thing happening to me in franchise, same error code. Another patch we didn’t need because of whiny DD players mad because online cheesers connect on pitches a mile outside of the zone.
    This game didn’t really need a patch. Doubt they’ll get it fixed this weekend. So no show for me this weekend. Sucks
    Edit: sorry I spoke to soon. I am on PS4 as well. So you guys are having luck by going offline then?

    I disconnected the network, and was able to play franchise (1 game). Half way through, got a notification system couldn't validate the license, and would suspend in 15 mintues.
    PS4 and Digital Copy of the game if that matters.

    Well thats not good. Did it suspend your license for the game entirely?

    Didn't wait around to find out
    Finished the 7th and simmed to the end of the game, saved and closed.

    Keep us updated on this please?

    Don't forget about the whiny RTTS players who got a fix, those MTO players who got a fix and definitely don't forget those whiny franchise players who got a fix....
    C'mon man.....this was bug introduced in a patch that had impact across the game. Blaming one group of players just because you have any issue with them/the mode they play is just ridiculously off-base.
    SDS screwed up, point blank...has nothing to do with any fan base.

    Yeah, I had a feeling someone was going to have that issue (or just not be able to play entirely). Busy night of work so it took me a while to get back here and respond.
    On PS4, that shouldn't happen if your console is designated as the primary for your account. Doing that should allow you to play the game offline without interruption. Here's a page detailing how to do that:
    https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/account/primary-ps4-activation-guide/
    I do not know what this process is for XBOX and/or Switch, if there is a similar one.
    As far as this game goes, this shouldn't be necessary once the server update (not even a downloaded patch) goes live in the early morning. But it might still be something to consider doing if you want to play games (especially digital ones) while offline.

    Any more feedback on the foul ball/swing & miss changes? Has it/offense been significantly altered or just a minor change? Still on the fence about downloading.

    Small sample size as I only played two games post patch. Seeing an uptick in swing and miss. Not significant but noticeable. To be safe I’d hold off on update until we get more definitive answer.
    I noticed in a few franchise games (MLB and AAA level) that I definitely whiffed on some of those nasty outside sliders I'd have at least fouled off pre-patch 6.
    FWIW, I agree that things that should be misses are now misses, especially if you like playing your AAA or AA teams games in franchise where guys have lower contact ratings (that applies to some of the MLB guys too)

    I’ve definitely seen more strikeouts on both sides. But it honestly feels more realistic than it did before on offense because it was nothing for me to be able to have 10-12 pitch at bats on the regular, and run the AI pitcher out of the game early even if I had scored a low number of runs. So it seems like it’s helped AI pitchers stay in the game longer. Like you it’s a small sample size, only 3 games. One concerning thing is I haven’t hit a HR since the patch with the Yankees lineup. That could have nothing to do with the patch, but it is pretty abnormal for my lineup.

    Same experience thru 3 games. It’s there but it’s balanced well imo, so it doesn’t really stand out.

    I've noticed in manage mode, more hrs (8 total last game), more outside chase strike 3's. Like other batter box chasing. Hadn't had that in the previous 25 games. It's spring, so I'm not making to much of it.

    How yall hitting so well. Im the cardinals and i was hitting good in the beginning but now can’t buy a hit

    Long as I am patient and can see the pitch coming out I hit well lol.

    Hello everyone.
    PS4 user: UK
    After panicking reading about the game crashing after the latest patch, I quickly disconneted from the Internet--went into "Downloads" and removed what I presumed was the "problematic Patch 6"!
    However, in my haste/panic, I think I may have actually removed the previous patch (rather than the intercepted new one)----consequently I now notice that even the HUM controlled Teams in my 30 Team Franchise no longer "obey" my Batting Orders (eg, set up the TBJ with Springer leading off---to get to the pre game and Bichette is actually "set"---does this sound like the (idiot) result of me essentially removing the previous Patch (5?)
    I am reluctant to connect back, and try and reload Patch 5, in fear of the reports of Patch 6 DOWNLOADING and freezing up my Franchise, or has this issue now been fixed, and Patch 5 is SAFE?
    Thank you everyone.
    Real small sample size to the point of being irrelevant, I just think its funny and it was an entertaining game and the irony is immense.
    NYY @ O's in Spring Training.
    O's win in 11th 9 to 8 with a 2 run walk of HR
    Total of 11 HR's 5 for the O's and 6 for NYY
    Hits were O's 17 and NYY 12
    I just have not had this kind of explosion with the O's so far. But things happen, especially in the Spring and it most likely means nothing and is just an entertaining blip.

    The game has been really unstable since the patch. I'm losing connection here & there where i never did before.
    And then last night against the Blue Jays at Camden, after a big 8th inning heading into the 9th, the game throws me out back to the Xbox menu screen .
    Just disappointing, I'd hit my 1st grand slam of the year, and was up 10-4. something that doesn't happen much with the orioles haha
    Feels like they have lowered the foul ball rate by simply moving the foul ball frequency slider. As a result, I am seeing more swing and misses, but also more physics breaking balls down the line that curve towards foul and then straighten out to stay fair, sometimes even coming back. It looks a bit odd, like there is wind when there is no wind

    I’ve noticed some weird things to. Had a home run I was super early on that normally would have been foul pre patch. It looked weird and almost straightened out just at the end to stay fair. Had to watch the replay because it looked weird

    Yeah, my game as crashed a few times randomly even with the fix. Not every time I try to play a franchise game like on Friday. But definitely more crashes then I was getting before.

    I get why you may be offended, but come on man. Go to the show.com they were the only ones making repeated posts to fix the hitting. The hitting was fine in my opinion. I get you shouldn’t be able to hit a ball a mile out of the zone, but when you are playing with a fake batting cursor (pci) and your camera zoomed in to the strike zone these types of variances are going to happen.
    I don’t think gameplay patches should be universal and would be fine with them limiting them to the competitive setting

    So you agree a player shouldn’t be able to hit a ball “a mile out of the strike Zone” , but you’re somehow upset about them fixing it? Ok..

    This is something I hope to see corrected with the release of every new game when it comes to spring ball, and that is games tied after 9 innings end in ties. They don’t count in the standings, but the team and individual stats do. That is how real life spring training games work.
    What I still don't understand is why they don't patch the players with their equipment, they continue to appear with their generic equipment in diamond dynasty.
    Too many pitchers losing the strike zone since the patch. Too many for it to be a coincidence.
    .. I've struggled with hitting as long as I've played this series. But I was on an absolute tear prior to the patch.
    bronxbombers21325
    Offense on both sides has been absolutely non existent since this patch. That can’t be a coincidence. I really hate it when they start messing with gameplay.

    I just beat the Mets with the Braves 18-1 on HOF with max pitch speeds. They haven't altered gameplay, minus foul ball coverage percentage which was only slightly lowered.
    Rockies revealed their City Connect uniforms today and will be wearing them a week from tomorrow. So we'll probably be getting a new update early next week.

    All I know is pre patch I was having a great variety of games. Slug fests, pitchers duels, a lot of hits with few runs. And the 12 or so post patch games neither team has scored more than 3 runs or gotten more than 8 hits in a game. It’s a shocker if either side his a ball hard enough to get it out of the infield. That’s not a coincidence.

    Same. I just hammered the A's 2 games ago. And Eloy Jimenez is on a tear with 5 HR's in the last 6 games.

    Why can't it be?

    If it is then it’s something that’s never happened in all my years playing this game. I know there are ups and downs but it’s a bit strange that both sides just go completely quiet on offense for a 2 week stretch the day a patch is released. I hope it is a coincidence. But it just seems strange to me.

    I do default All-Star too, and I’ve had the same variety as I did before the patch. I haven’t had many insane offensive explosions (probably because after years and years, I still swing at way too much junk I shouldn’t be, haha) but I rarely did before the patch. A good amount of runs and hits though - the game still feels good to me.
