This looks to be a great first patch. Lots of things that were quirky or broken have been addressed.

Downloading right now.

DL as I keep my system on standby at all times.

I will check back in with detailed impressions. I had that Wrigley Field HR bug hit me...so glad they caught that!!!

Was just about to go for a bike ride as it's as glorious spring afternoon here in the UK..... Oh well!
# 5 El_MaYiMbE @ 04/23/15 07:03 AM
Strikeouts w/ 2 strikes, CPU bunting, and CPU leadoff logic....These were 3 things I reported in the bug tool and got fixed! Awesome...

Thanks SCEA!

Still no ability to change the direction of the left handed pitching meter
# 7 kamackeris76 @ 04/23/15 07:05 AM
Wonder if wind has an effect?
# 8 kamackeris76 @ 04/23/15 07:08 AM
So bunts are definetly less accurate... Just found that out
# 9 sydrogerdavid @ 04/23/15 07:10 AM
I hope they fix the left handed batter ear flap bug soon. When lefties reach base, more often than not, the ear flap on their helmet switches sides. Sometimes it affects on deck hitters too. There's already a bug report, but I can't attach the photos as evidence.

I wonder why more people don't see this.

McCutchen hair!

I took the day off work to do yard work before it rains all weekend. I don't think I'll make it outside for a few hours now.

Any chance the leftfield scoreboard at Wrigley gets added back in?
# 13 BrianU @ 04/23/15 07:25 AM
I am seriously impressed by this patch. Never expected them to touch leading off and bunting issues but they continue to set the standard in the industry. Hell of a job!
# 14 Splitter77 @ 04/23/15 07:37 AM
that looks like a great patch.
nice job scea.

cant wait to download this after work.
# 15 ElroyJetson @ 04/23/15 07:56 AM
Any word on if they fixed the bug where the announcers credit every hitter with their first major league home run for everyone hit in franchise.
# 16 Trojan Man @ 04/23/15 08:00 AM
Does this take effect with existing franchises, or does it require a restart (particularly w/ regard to the trading logic fixes)?
# 17 hunterdawgs10 @ 04/23/15 08:06 AM
Bunting tuned! Yes!
# 18 Pezell04x @ 04/23/15 08:11 AM
Very glad the check swing strikeout was changed. That was such an annoying bug.
# 19 PsychoBulk @ 04/23/15 08:19 AM
Superb patch, very meaty and seemingly fixes all of the well known bugs.

Kudos to SCEA once again!

On with the franchise...
# 20 aparks87 @ 04/23/15 08:22 AM
Option to use broadcast presentation for offline play in DD wasn't added =/

Go figure.
