That can't be it because Rocketsauce said it was happening to him when we played and I never use guess pitch.

For the next league can we vote on baserunning controls?

Found this online, kinda makes it sound like if the pitch is correctly guessed, the pitching meter does not come into play.

Even with constant pleading to make a change the “Guess Pitch” feature remains active for ranked games. What this means is most people just sit on fastball every pitch. Not only does that mean that the user who is pitching completely loses any control over the pitch, and that is a completely helpless and frustrating feeling, but it pretty much forces people to either avoid throwing fastballs or only throw them outside the zone. I played one game where neither of us were using “Guess Pitch” and it was remarkable how much more fun it was than the others.

The games mentioned before appear to have counted now in the standings. I'll check in-game tonight after we get home from my daughter's ballgame. Being a head coach and a commisioner at the same time is tough.

I think the standings might have gotten fixed. I know they have been corrected on the website, haven't been online with my PS3 today to check there.

This league stuff is incredibly fun. I do like the idea of playing each person multiple times per season, although maybe not all at once.

Hey everyone. I accepted the first league invitation, but, when it was reformed, I was out-of-town for the weekend and didn't make it back in time! I'll try to remember to check the thread for the next league since I'm still interested. Sorry for the lack of communication!

No problem at all. It was one of those things where I had to reform the league and didn't want to wait a week to actually get it going. I'm hoping that this is only the first of several leagues and that you will be a part of the future ones. Thanks again!!!

Just a heads up for everyone... the Braves will have ample time to get some games in on Friday and Saturday nights. So if you're on my schedule, hit me up and let me know you'll be around.

Ok I checked at lunch when I went home and the standings on the PS3 side are still screwed up.

Re: Official MLB '10: The Show PS3 Online League Thread

From the same post referenced above.... This is exactly what it felt like when I had Wagner in the game last night.

I’ve also been bothered by a complete randomness in where pitches end up. I’m aware that this has been a problem found offline as well, but it feels to me as though it is magnified online. I have hit patches where my pitch location does not end up anywhere near where it was targeted even when hitting the meter perfectly. I’m not describing just small variances, which are expected, but examples like aiming a fastball inside and off the plate, nailing it on the meter, and having it end up outside off the plate by two feet. In the end I just end up feeling like I’m throwing and just hoping it somehow results in an out instead of pitching. Based on responses on Twitter I’m definitely not the only person who has seen pitch accuracy become completely random.

I have had that happen but the instances are so few and far between that it hasn't bothered me to this point.

I should be on after 10pm CST if anyone with me on their schedule wants to play.

I also couldn't tell if it was me or something screwy was going on. I don't think it necessarily aides the batter in any way... it seems to just make it frustrating for the pitcher.

I forgot the Blackhawks game is on at 8 CST so I'll be watching that after Lost unless they're getting their butts handed to them. I may be online from 7-8pm CST though.

Aside from all of the problems we're having with certain aspects of the league I have to say that I'm still having fun being part of a league with you guys. This is the first time around so I'm sure we can make adjustments and such to make the next league even better.

Yeah the lag made it kind of tough. When I hit the batter that was the lag, not intentional.

I can't believe I got back in it like that. I really don't like Peavy in this game - hard to control. Buehrle was much better. We'll see how Floyd and Danks do.

Thanks for the game it was great.

Question - how is the home/away thing decided? I've played two road games so far.

Re: Official MLB '10: The Show PS3 Online League Thread

my biggest complain is when the batter "guesses" the correct pitch and u have no control...that really bugged me. i had alot of issues w/ switching players when fielding too. And trying to check swing, always turned into a strike for me. The lag really killed me on the pitching meter..sometimes it would affect me too early or too late and my pitches were all fucked up.

i just cant get over how i was up 8-3 in the 9th, and u got 7 runs! lol

I'm on an 8Mbit cable connection - I think the lag must be the servers itself.

Well, I got my ass kicked. The lag was an issue, but I made mistakes too.
