Something is definitely missing when it comes to stealing, they need to find a way to replicate a pitcher not paying attention to the runner and allowing someone similar to the Vlad example to swipe a base

In regards to the injuries, I’d like to see more occur the day after a game. Plenty of pitchers make it through a start or relief outing and then the next day something feels off and they end up on the IL. Don’t make everything an injury where you have to leave the game immediately

Interesting. I thought all 5 would be the outdated logic

Agreed, I feel like these two things are the best they've ever been. This feels like it was written from the perspective of an online/DD player who feels any ball that's remotely squared up should be a 500 foot bomb, or perfect/perfect should be an automatic hit.

My fear is articles like this will cause SDS to do what they've done in the past, and tweak the hitting mechanic and then completely ruin the game for me.

It's a DD/Online players world though, so I guess it's inevitable.

Yeah I don’t know why so many people think PP should be a hit. I aim for 3+ PPs per inning and often accomplish it. If these people think I should be getting 3+ hits per inning as a result I don’t even know what to say.

“….That being said, hitting in MLB The Show 22 has been off to a bit of rocky start since the release of the game, especially within online modes…..”

Online modes, ugh. Message to SDS please don’t screw up the hitting as it’s the best it’s ever been.

Re: Five Worst Gameplay Issues in MLB The Show 22

This article is.....I am going to say it.....and I have rarely criticized our article writers here who do a commendable job...TERRIBLE.

Watch baseball.....hell those of us who have played at high levels....know well and good you can go 0-15 with 10 lasers that find leather, 3 strikeouts and 2 pop outs just missing the barrel.

The Show captures this incredibly well.

BUT......online gamers gonna online whine. Same story each and every cycle since the game became very popular with online competitive play. And then they infect our offline bliss.

Rocket bunts, check swings....shall I keep going.

Terrible article. It encapsulates what a lot of us keep trying to avoid. The game caving in to the demands of pure user input vs ratings based baseball. They have a great balance right now and they have numerous control options. The hitting engine was balanced back for 22 after last cycles regression.

Its a battle and I felt 21 caved and 22 was a big recovery and hence the huge outcry on twitter or wherever the heck else the online crowd is flipping out about hitting.

I am glad SDS has stuck to their guns with 22. The game is playing fantastic. Perfect? No.

But leave hitting alone. Please. In fact just leave gameplay alone......get to work on 23. Leave 22 alone. I can’t stomach some of the crap that is being said abut hitting.

IT'S BASEBALL!!!!!! It is a game of monumental failure. It is a game you can do everything right 1000 times and only be successful 275 and you had a good career. 25 more balls that find a hole, bleed, or miss a glove and you are a Hall of Famer.

What is so hard to grasp about this fact?
