I agree, I'm playing on allstar with no slider adjustments and the cpu is much more patient post patch. I never had a problem with the cpu swinging away before, but I notice the difference now.

Either the game takes 45 minutes and you get realism or the game takes 20 and each team throws 50 pitches per game. I think we would ALL prefer realism so again, no offense but we don't need comments like this giving the programmers the wrong ideas.
Great post. People were steaming mad and calling this game ungodly names due to the aggressive cpu now the games are too long thanks to the less aggressive and more REALISTIC cpu hitters.

So much more realistic at least online with this patch.
I think this applies to the off line experience too. Way too many home runs pre patch but now it seems perfect.

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

Thanks for the impressions fellas. It is much appreciated.

Is the hit variety good? It seems that most baseball games I have played the last few years, that very few balls go down the lines.

Also, when you hit the ball hard, do you feel you have earned it? I am still playing 2K7, and I like alot of things about the game. But I hate it when I totally get jammed, yet my batter rockets the ball 450 feet the other way for a lame feeling HR. I do seem to recall a developer of 2K8 making a comment that 2K7 hitting had some "randomeness" to it.

Of course. It has to be this way. I don't know anything about developing video games, but I would think it would be waaay harder to make them move real-time. That's why I'm praying for NCAA to have it in their football game this year.

So is the stealing issue something thats just popped up since the patch or am I just noticing it now? I can only steal if I accidently get a ridiculous jump or the catcher makes a terrible throw.

computer is still aggressive as hell , but I notice that they work the counts more giving my guys more realistic pitch counts. Also power is extremely sapped, i've yet to see one hit in the 3 games i've played, however I have seen 2 in the park homers thanks to outfielders glitching.
