Patch has generally improved the game, I play on All-Star stock sliders. But user pitching is wild now, and AI still throws a few too many strikes. Any one have any thoughts on this?

For your pitches try decreasing the Gesture Recognition slider. I put mine down from 100 to 90.

For AI throwing too many strikes put the AI Strike Zone Tendency slider down. I have mine at 0. They still throw strikes but they are not afraid to walk you on 4 or 5 pitches some times either.

In my opinion the patch has made this the game to play...online. I only play online, I just believe that AI will always be somewhat flawed in video games, or it just becomes stale after awhile, but online makes each game seem fresh.

And if you are an online player like me then this is the baseball game to get, especially after the patch. The Show may be a better overall game but the online experience is horrible.

Just my opinion...They could still stand to reduce home runs a little but its not terrible.

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

Well I am absolutely furious. I have tried to play franchise games and it freezes everytime. I haven't been able to stay in the game for more than 20 seconds. I haven't even been able to throw a pitch or swing the bat. This is absolutely absurd. How can something like this happen. I've tried to delete my cache and that doesn't work. I have no idea what to do.

I play MLB for franchise mode. I don't play it for online or exhibition. So the one thing I like doing in the game I can't even do cuz the 2k developers are so damn stupid that they can't even make a patch correctly. I had no freezing issues with the game before this patch.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Edit:
I just found out I can't play an exhibition game because it freezes in the same exact spot that it does in franchise. Wow this is flat out awesome. Now I can't even play the game! I absolutely cannot believe this.

Not at all. I have played 14 franchise games now since the patch and have not had the game freeze once. It didnt freeze before the patch either.

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

To whomever asked about my offense... in three post-patch games, my offense has stunk.

I play on a hybrid version of sliders where User hitting is essentially All Star Difficulty and CPU hitting is Legend. CPU pitching uses BFJ's sliders and User pitching is Legend.

I can't stress how important Inside Edge. Pitch to players' miss zones and avoid their in play zones, and you will see a lot of taken pitches and swings and misses. The game may be a little too reliant on Inside Edge to get these results, but the amount of information is incredible. I just wish hitters' strengths and weaknesses were easily accessible, or the catcher did a better job calling a game.

My last pitching line with Matsuzaka:

7.1 IP, 2BB, 4K, 4 Hits, 1 Run, 93 pitches.

All Star default plays pretty good, but I've tweaked it a bit to better suit me. It just depends on your skill level. Also, tweaking the AI pitching a bit helps to get more realistic balls/strikes from the AI pitchers.

Sounds like something is wrong with your disc. I would see about getting a replacement. I've heard people are experiencing some freezing every now and then, but not to the point where they can't even complete a game or even inning.
