different kind of game, but still fun. I haven't seen a definitive answer, (going to download the patch here in a bit), but have the OF issues been alleviated or at least improved?
Bk, for me in two offline games and one online game...............YES!!!! Not one fielding gaff in 3 games......

That was one of my biggest gripes in the demo and after watching this forum for impressions, the full game as well. That's one of the reason I never picked this game up or rented it until now.

So again I say, YES the fielding is much improved IMHO!!!

!
What do you mean all default batting stances are changed? I play as the Cubs and I still see that some of my players still have their original default batting stance, the same as before the patch.

NICE....

I just played a game on all-star default Padres vs. National.. Game played pretty well to me. Not the ultimate sim, but well within realm of reality..

I think this game will fit nicely as a fun change of pace game for me to play this summer.

oh. well for the red sox, jed lowrie has his batting stance now instead of the default. and a lot of my relievers have their set deliveries!

whatsup with pitching though! it doesn't hit where i want the pitch..how do i get it to the area i want it? because if i keep getting the yellow to fill the circle all the way, my pitcher will get tired easily.

Anyone know if the patch fixed the Chase Field Glitch? Where if you hit a homerun to very deep left center field approximatly where what use to be called Fry's Picnic Pavillion is the ball glitches and the runners wont score on the homerun. Its quite annoying cause your game is over once that glitch hits.

Cool! I'm home now and will play in a few. Any recommended sliders yet?
I know it's early but any that are decent that I can go from there?

Re: Major League Baseball 2K9 Official Patch 2 Available, Impressions Here (360 Only)

Played another game with the patch, and I'm very impressed. Random thoughts and observations:

- CPU Aggressiveness is toned down, but it will jump on poorly executed pitches. Pitch Gesture is monumentally important, especially on breaking pitches.

- User-controlled pitchers are far less accurate. It provides a great challenge, and I actually walked three guys during my last game.

- Fielding is much, much more enjoyable. It's less twitchy and more fluid.

- Are we sure progressive lighting isn't fixed? I started my game at what looked like 2pm or so in the afternoon. The lights came one near the end of the game, but there was much more sunlight out. It looked like it was about 6pm or so.

- Smoother transitional animations... there's no doubt Visual Concepts worked on stuff after the game went gold. This patch includes too much to believe otherwise.

- Overall, I'm thrilled. MLB 2K9 plays a pretty darn good game of baseball with this patch, and we haven't gotten into the nitty-gritty slider tweaking just yet. I'm estatic!
