MLB 14 The Show: Online Impressions (PS4)


Add another asterisk to Major League Baseball's latest boast -- this time, its belief that, compared to other sports video games, "Baseball is better."*

*Statement applies only to offline game modes. Online experiences may vary.

Of the five major sports games presently available for PlayStation 4, only NBA Live 14 performs worse online than MLB 14: The Show.

I played an online game yesterday afternoon, and everything that was said about the latency, lag as the batter was completely true. The timing is so far off during batting that it can really affect you. It took me 7 innings to really get the timing down to hit with the lag, but I did manage to get the bases loaded twice in the 8th and 9th inning due to my opponent being very predictable. I couldnt manage to get a run, and when he finally changed pitchers in the 8th and 9th with strong fastballs it threw my timing off again. My opponent struggled more than I did and struck out 19 times and only managed 4 hits, unfortunately my old age set in yesterday and I couldn't pitch worth a damn and walked 6 straight batters (quick counts), the only two runs of the game, and i lost 2-0.

If the issues would go away I would definitely play more online, but that was too frustrating trying to completely change your timing.

All my online experiences have been silky smooth, the hitter and batter interface feels like off line. The base running lag, i know how to combat that, but the game is smooth as butter online.

My experience has be abysmal (my ISP Comcast with my PS4 on a DMZ with absolutely no filtering) and I agree with this article 100%. Lasts years game was very solid online and I was really stoked for online play this year but feel the ball was dropped big time. I've given it a solid try too, probably 10-12 games..got multiple game freezes, disconnects and none of the games where anywhere near "lag free". I've given up on online matches until it gets addressed (if it does). It's simply not enjoyable.

My experience has been pretty good online as well. Hitting, pitching and fielding are working very well. I've seen horrible lag and sync issues running the bases however. To workaround the base running issues I am just very conservative. I never try to stretch hits or take extra bases on what appears to be bad throws since it's impossible to know where the ball really is due to sync issues.

The online portion of this game is simply BROKEN and can not believe Sony would release a game with this flaw.

The timing is so bad online depending on who you're playing that. Just. I think the concept of online for a baseball game just isn't feasible.
