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

Really like most of things that were addressed.

HOWEVER, I'm finding it hard to now turn DP's. I never had a problem before but my guys don't seem to fire the ball around like they did prior.

Homeplate/ Base detection and tag-ups still "broke"

Hit a ball into the gap in left center, guy makes a running catch, I tag home, guy does not move home quickly, I try the hold down RS trick. OF fires to cut off on the run, cut- off fires a 1 hopper to the catcher. My front extended leg slid over the plate my bent leg just about touches the plate when the catcher catches the ball, I get CALLED OUT.

First the play should have never been that close the way he caught it and B) I was safe by A LOT.

Similar thing happened a 2nd.

Still overall very pleased, and need to remember to send my guy "early"

Online is so much better. I dont think you can actually abuse exploits anymore online. I had one guy trying to pick me off at 2nd, and he couldnt. He kept doing it over and over again. I just hit continue lol

For me, online is where its at now.

I have played 5 post patch games with some tweaks to the default legend sliders. I still have to get the hitting sliders a little better but here are my results. (I lost all 5 games). I am Boston.

Game #1
R H E
Red Sox 2 4 1
---------------------
Blue Jays 4 12 0

Game #2
R H E
Red Sox 2 10 0
---------------------
Blue Jays 3 7 0

Game #3
R H E
Red Sox 0 7 0
---------------------
Rangers 4 9 0

Game #4
R H E
Red Sox 4 9 2
---------------------
Rangers 7 10 0

Game #5
R H E
Red Sox 2 8 2
---------------------
Rangers 5 7 0

To me it is good overall on the CPU offense side. I just need to work on the HUM offense side.

Also I have a little problem in my franchise after the patch. I have two brad penny's and two jon lester's. The fatigue is always the same for both of them. Just kind of quirky if you ask me. I haven't tried to do anything to get rid of "extras yet". Just weird.

Should I delete my game from the HDD and then reinstall the game for the patch 2. Or dos it make any difference....The game runs smoother anyways on the HDD.

You don't need to delete. I didn't, and the patch works just fine.

MLB 2K9, post-patch, is a B/B+ game. I'm thrilled.

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

I still wish they would fix the sub issues with the pitchers. I can only change pitchers right at the beginning of inning (as opposed to making that decision while I'm at-bat). Then I can't do a mound visit with my reliever until the next inning. I think its kind of a pain.

I also can't access my cards during the game. I like to monitor what it is I need to do. Minor gripe.

Overall I like the changes. I like the way that my pitches aren't always perfectly placed. They also fixed the D walk grades for batters - or so it appears in my limited experience with the patch.
